We have a 2016 Thor Vegas 24.1 with the E450 Chassis. Just wondering how many miles I should expect to conservatively get before having to replace the brakes. We have done all sorts of different driving from prairie roads to mountain passes. We currently have 38,000 miles on the motorhome. Thanks
Anywhere between 35,0000 and 135,000 miles.
Used to be 40,000 to 50,000 miles was a good rule of thumb but I have 100,000 driven miles on my Sonic plus about 10,000 more with a braking system towed and they're not ready to be changed yet.
Any answer you get is pure speculation.
Our 2010 Ford Ranger has 81,000 and I am on the 3rd set of front pads and just changed out the rears.
On our last class C, an 08 on a Chevy chassis, we had 61,000 on the truck still with the original brakes when we traded it in.
Our 18 ACE has 35,000. Last fall we checked the front pads they look good.
They wear out when they wear out
I agree with MJC62. Once you get 30K (assuming you do not hear or feel issues related to braking before that mileage), you should have them inspected and decide how fast they are wearing. And, it is not just the pad thickness, but also the rotor face, and caliper free-movement. You can have one wheel go south in a hurry with a stuck caliper.
