Willing to replace both for a fix!!
Randy,
I think I read that you have to replace them. They can not be fixed.
I found the replacement on Ebay.
I read this post to help me figure out what was wrong with mine.
FYI my issue was different then this thread. John Wyatt's drawing helped
me figure out my problem.

Thanks Alan.

That sounds a bit different than what I have going on. Mine is not a retarder issue and happens when I hit the brake even when parked. I'm beginning to think it may be a brake chamber or brake relay issue, but not sure. At least the air loss part, still uncertain about the grind during turns.

Randy,
Your symptoms were similar to mine and so that's why I mentioned that switch.
Good Luck
PS
I enjoy your blog...........

Brake light switch is commonly available, crossref Bendix SL-5. I bought two in Canada thinking at least one was bad, nope, I have a spare and now so does Jeff Kunzelman!

I had a service tech out to the rv park yesterday and we found the leak is at a elbow going to the front brakes. It is right behind the left rear jack stand and about impossible to get at with the jack down.

They said they could bring a wrecker out to lift the rear end, but the tech and I do not see a good way to do that, so the other suggestion is to pinch it off and drive it to their shop where they have a pit. So that is the plan for Monday morning.

The grind is coming from the same spot, I'm going to see if there is a way to tie wrap the line so maybe less grind on the turns until we get a better look at it in the shop.

Thanks for your concern.

Thinking out loud.. I wonder if the air dryer could be a contributor to the issue. It used to pssst right at 125 and it seems to be getting more toward 130-135.

Thoughts?

The unload pressure is controlled by the air governor. They are adjustable, but I wouldn't blink an eye at 130-135 psi unload pressure. I've driven many heavy trucks running 135 psi...If you want to adjust the governor, it is usually buried up on the inside of frame on passenger side by the engine. You will have to go underneath the coach (if your 97 is the same as my 94). Bring a 7/16" wrench and a screwdriver, remove end cap on governor and you will find the adjustment. Counter-clockwise decreases unload pressure (if I remember correctly).

Good to hear that progress is being made and that you folks are safe.

I think BB moved them since 94. The governor on my 97 is located in the engine compartment just aft of the chassis batteries. Easy to access.
