Power Boost problem? PLEASE HELP ME! Kyle R. Morris 7-24-10  
've read every entry on this site and I'm amazed that so many of us have had this problem (dating back to 2006!)
I have a 1995 Itasca Suncruiser. It's been in the shop three times already (this is # 4 ) with the following problem:

The parking brake will not disengage (light on)
I have NO power steering or brakes
when I shift from Park to Drive or Reverse, the RV WILL move....just not turn or STOP.
When I return the transmission to PARK and shut the motor off POWER STEERING ( Hydro. fluid ) POURS out of the overflow tube on the top of the canister.
The only solution my shop has found is to bleed the entire system of air and re-fill the Hydro fluid. It's almost like I have an air leak somewhere that allows air into the line and will not allow the fluid to
flow through the lines. Does this sound reasonable to anyone...and is there a better solution to it? This is getting costly!!!! Thanks in advance!

I ran into a bus with a similar problem and found that the low presure return line had colapsed inside.
The pump was wining loud enough I could hear it over the Detroit deisel.
The lines should not be anything too special and may be retained by hose clamps instad of premade hose.
There could also be a leak in this line that allows air into the system
Either way
Good Luck

Kyle I had the same problem with my 1992 wennibago motor home in 2009 and could not find any body that could tell me what to do to fix it so being a mechanic on 18 wheelers for 36 years I set out on my own to find the problem and I finaly came up with the prblem.If you would like for me to explain to you how to fix the problem call me on my cell phone (704)699-5104
