GeorgieBoy 28 ft rear right brake stuck after hitting curb JD 4-26-17  
I have an 1989 28 ft chevy chassis 454 Georgie Boy and driving it through town my passenger rear bumped up on a roundabout curb. Within 2 miles the right rear brake locked up--completely seized. Had to bleed the line and limp to local auto mechanic 1/2 mile away. I am reading forums that recommend replacing brakelines? I'm wondering if the jolt could have crimped an old line? Or was it just a coincidence? At first look, the mechanic believes sediment-layden fluid and master cylinder were culprit.

All three ideas are valid.

These chassis have very common trouble with collapsing flexible rubber lines causing this symptom. You can pump the fluid through but wont let it return.

But a seized brake cylinder or master cylinder could happen as well.

Either way big repair bill.

Good luck
