Customer Question

I just purchased a 2005 Holiday Rambler Neptune. 36Ft Diesel Pusher. Roadmaster chassis.
I assume it was sitting a little while as it was winterized.
The brakes are hydroboost with 4 wheel disc. Pads and Rotors are great. No obvious leaks.
Too much brake pedal travel and you have to apply way too much foot pressure to totally stop coach.
I am wondering if hydoboost issue or is it common that piston travel in calipers is reduced or sticking due to sitting up. I will stop but I pull a heavy trailer and need great brakes even though I have electric trailer brakes too.
