Have you replaced the brake hoses, not the steel lines, the ones near the wheels?

A few years ago I replaced almost all the brake lines including all the rubber ones. The way the pedal is now is it will pump up and by the third pump the pedal is quite high and the brakes hold decent. By the symptoms it is now a small air bubble in the brakes somewhere, more than likely the front brakes. I was going to bleed them, but the bleeders are rounded off enough that I need a six point wrench to open them. A six point 10mm wrench is not easy to find. I have a 10mm line wrench, but it slips on the bleeders too.

I would replace those bleeders with some speed bleeders.

Yea, I thought of that, but since I need to pull the wheels, I need to find a place that will allow me to pull them since most campgrounds really frown upon any vehicle repairs.

Sorry to read about your brake issues especially when you are so far from your normal resources. Maybe you should just bite the bullet and go to a reputable local garage that has all the necessary tools and parts available to properly repair your truck.

Trust me, that has crossed my mind more than once. All it needs is just to be bled. I just need to do it.

I am sure that you know how to bleed your brakes but sometimes circumstances prohibit on from doing things without the proper tools and help. I take it that you are on vacation with the wife so why don't you cut back on the pressures and have it done while you enjoy a nice meal with your wife. I know you are a lot like me and you're going to do it your way so good luck and don't hurt yourself and spoil your trip. Best wishes, Kerley

Kerley, just an FYI, this 'vacation' I am on just may last a long time, maybe even years!! (we sold our house and have only the trailer) The brakes are not perfect, but I have plans for this "situation"....... as long as I can get things to stay together until maybe next summer..... This is something like what I have plans to do........
