Paseo Brake warning missing
My 2018 Paseo has never shone a "Brake-On" light or chime when the parking brake is engaged. This caused me a major headache when the brake was accidentally lightly engaged, possibly when I moved from the drivers seat to the back of the coach and back to the drivers seat. It's a tight squeeze, and requires some facile foot manipulation, and I might have lifted the parking brake handle just enough to cause a slight engagement.
When I stopped in a friends driveway after driving a few miles, there was smoke coming from the passenger side rear wheels. A garden hose took care of the problem, and the coach drove fine, but I took it to a local Ford dealer to have him fix the non-functional brake warning light. I assumed it would be a warranty repair, but after removing the drivers seat to trace the problem, they announced that the apparent cause was a splice that they assumed Winnebago had installed.
They said the splice connected an 8ga. wire going to the coach area to the approximately 30ga. wire from the brake. They posited that the mis-matched size caused the brake light not to function. I'm an old rancher, so the exact electrical hypothesis explanation went past my semi-functional ears like a whistling teal. The Ford dealer said it wasn't a Ford warranty problem, and charged me for two hours labor.
Do any other Paseo owners have a brake-light problem, and does any of my sad story make any sense?
