1987 33ft Bounder brakes Tom 7-19-10  
I acquired our motor home that has been sitting for a few years. When I tested the brakes just the fronts were working. So I opened the master cylinder and the rear reservoir was empty and front was full. So filled it up bled the brakes and it seemed to work. I have yet to see any leaks. Any ideas where else to look for my lost fluid? Also I have never driven a motor home so I can't tell if its stopping good or bad. Seems like its stopping like a lead brick.... but that may be the norm. Any help would be great.

If it leaked out, it has a leak.
It is common for the master cylinder to leak at the rear seal and only the rear resivoir goes down.
I would recomend that you do a close inspection inside the drums, even if it is only through the adjuster holes to insure that you do have working rear brakes.
Please be care full as the rear brakes provide 75% of your braking.
Good Luck
