Front brakes locked up on 1993 Winnebago Brave Lee Broas 6-30-10  
I took my motorhome out of storage and found that the front brakes were locked up on my 1993 Winnebago Brave.
I replaced the front calibers, had the rotors turned and put in new brake pads. I then proceeded to bleed the brakes. When I went to turn the wheels they would not budge, seems that the brake calibers were still locked up. I took it for a short test drive to see if the brakes would let go, but they did not. Has anyone had this kind of problem and if so, what did you do to fix it.

I've had similar problems with my 1993 Spartan chassis Winnebago Vectra. After replacing "everything" I found out that a lot of the Spartan chassis have similar issues. Some worse than others. The simple fix for me was to use a non oil based grease on the caliper sliders, made by a company called Permitex, or something like that. After applying the brakes the disc pads only move away from the rotor a minuscule amount and rely on the sliders being able to move slightly also to release the non activated disc pad. That's the one opposite the wheel cylinder activated one of the two disc pads. Good luck with yours...
