I am assuming that you have rear drum brakes. It looks like a brake shoe return spring (based on the length and diameter). But a brake shoe return spring would normally be inside the drum. You mention the passenger side, but where was it? Was it near the front wheels, the rear wheels or somewhere else? What kind of parking brake do you have on the motor home?

Steve

Here is a pic you can see the rod that goes up to the brake pedal, The steering box is on the left
Thanks for the info and picture, attaching picture of area on yours, mine is similar but no hooking points, so I tested the pedal with my hand and it has two motions hydraulic and a spring to lift it, my spring must be inside, but can't see due to congested wires in area under dash.
My picture shows it as a protected from splash area. Spring was found under passenger side so the auto brake mechanism needs a closer inspection.

disc brakes on back too, it was near passenger side front wheel, auto park brake uses hydraulic pressure to un-apply, brakedown of switch causes brake to lockup transmission shaft with a drum brake that totally encloses the driveshaft.

Dave,
Do you think that this spring could be off something else other than your motorhome?

Steve

Hi Dave:

Slithered under rig yesterday and could not see any springs attached nor any attachment points. Paid particular attention to brake are and nothing. Had the oilcooler lines replaced and was checking for leaks, so had a good close look at everything.

The only place that type of spring could be used is in the shoe assembly of the A/P drum brake end of tranny.

Regards

Steve

Thanks Steve,
My A/P drum is completely closed both ends with no way for it to get out if was installed inside.
Dave
P.S. 50 amp conversion hit a snag, ebay auto transfer switch installed but on startup testing it is sticking on one set of points, should have tested before starting job, my trust on new electrical equipment to work is at fault.

The parking brake system is an independent system from the service brake system. Even with 4 wheel disc brakes the separate parking brake system is a drum brake system.
