Hi i have just bought a 1997 fleetwood colchester 1850EB, the brakes always come on when i try to reverse, i do not know how to stop this.

Should it be automatic or do i need to do something manually, any help would be very welcome.

thanks

Hi Cliff

A motor mover should solve the problem but may cost as much as the van.

Probably worth getting the van serviced unless it's been done recently by the previous owner.

Also worth a try if you are reversing up a slope. Chock the caravan wheels and let the car roll forward slightly which should release the brakes. Then try reversing again.

Really appreciate is you could let us know how you go.
