What brakes?

What type of front brake was used on a 92 36' landyacht? I'm needing to replace the front pads and calipers and need to know what type they are. The P30 used several types so I'd like to narrow it down.

I don't understand why knowone knows anything about this. I just need to know if the brakes are a pin type or slide type. Seems to me like this forum is going dead. Not trying to PO anyone here, but it would seem like this would have been a pretty common question.

Best to pull them out, and take with you to the parts house.
Most will look up the MH chassis, P30 P31 whatever it takes, and match to what you have.
Should not be a big problem, as these are used in many types of trucks.

Ya, I was just wanting to order the parts first. I only have one day (Sunday) to do the work since I'm working until 6:00pm 6 days a week. I was planning on picking up the hoses, rotors, pads and calipers before hand to make sure I had everything to do the job. To complicate things I only have a Pepboys and Autozone near me. Neither have personnel that are too intelligent. I seem to always have to explain to them what the part is or just give them the part number and tell them to pull/order it.

Didn't want to leave the MH on jack stands for more then the day. I guess I just have to hope that they have everything in stock or take two weeks to complete the job. Just thought that this would be a fairly basic question.

As so many of us have experienced --- The best anyone can tell you is what they have possession of, as yours may be different.
A small volume OEM like Airstream, may make many changes on the production line, depending on price and availability at the time.
The best rule, as mentioned above, is to remove your part and then source the same.

The responses given are the only responses possible. The ONLY way to know for sure what is on your motor home is to remove the part and take it to the parts store for comparison. If that means leaving it on jack stands until the correct parts can be ordered and installed, then that's what you will have to do.

I guess I ASSumed that all the Airstream Chevy based 92 Landyacht Motor homes were made off the same P30 GM chassis. I never would have imagined that Chevy would change the brakes that much in one year. I've always wondered why there wasn't a good cross-reference on parts for everyone to use. I guess it's a learning curve thing.

I usually do all the work on my vehicles myself. For what itís worth Iíll be documenting what parts I find on my RV if anyone wants to compare.
