Passenger side brake failures on 2017 FC27FB

Last fall I had to replace the passenger, forward brake assembly. Catastrophic failure, locked up, blew the tire, and ripped wheel well chrome. Roadside assistance had me drive back to their shop (about 8mi) w/o the wheel. They replaced the brake assembly with NAPA parts for about $300. 1500mi later the passenger rear brakes started growling. Had Airstream dealer replace them for $600. They also checked the driver side brakes; they were OK.

Welcome Aboard...👍

Brakes are a yearly ck for us, I do an inspection & adjust every Spring.
POI the never-adjust can & should be inspected/adj regularly. BSTS.
