Sorry for your issues, glad you are ok. One point - just because you only have 36,000 miles, your truck is still 10 years old. And with salt used on the east coast, corrosion happens. Your brakes should probably be looked at once a year, I have mine checked every spring.

Cost of SS brake line kit for 2500 GMC HD.

Hi Wingeezer;
Hi Brian; Brake line kit was $120.00 Installation will be done by my neighbor who owns a service station so that my charge will be much less than average. I will ask him what flat rate time allowance is and let you know. My brakes were not bled with the help of a scanner when repaired. I had a soft brake pedal going home but by utilizing trailer brakes I got home safely.
Thanks, Brian. Boatdoc

Truth is that my truck has never been even driven one mile in snow. Go figure? Thanks "Boatdoc"

Unfortunately, the salt they use to melt the snow stays on the roads after the snow is gone. Any moisture can spray it up under your vehicle.

Our daughter had a similar experience as she was heading to St. Louis for student teaching. She stopped for gas and a break, and when she got back in to go she noticed red fluid all over the ground. She called me. Jo Ann and I both drove to where she was. She took one car in for student teaching, and I took her car back to Rolla, where our son was, right by the dealership. The next day he took the car in, and in short order I got a phone call. The car was fixed, but we traded it for another one. Daughter kept my car. Fortunately for her, the brake line broke while sitting still. Yes, I drove the car (slowly) with only rear brakes working.

+1 to what you Len said, so glad you're doing well enough to go camping. Sorry to hear about the break lines, but good to know there are still good people that will help out strangers.

Thank you for your inspirational and cautionary post. After two years post a Stage 4 diagnosis, good to know you are back on the road. I trust it puts any mechanical challenges however challenging into perspective. God bless, travel safe. Dennis
