An internal pressure switch will be normalized shutting the buzzer off and restoring electric boost power.

Which system? The brake fluid or the power steering fluid?

I might have you mixed up with someone else who had brake problems last week here.

In any case, if your brake fluid is low you get the buzzer. Not sure but the power steering is likely the same fluid but not exactly sure on your bus. Mine, it is.
So which one is the leaky problem can only be determined by you. Fix that and you are back in business.

Ah ok. Well, I did check the brake fluid level and it's still topped off. The primary boost is provided by power steering fluid from an engine-driven pump that also powers the steering system.

Went back a few pages didn't see any pics. Really curious about this build because I have similar intentions but I think I will be one of those awful people who tow separately.

Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately, I have not done any work on this project in a few years. I still own it and have plans to finish the work, but life has a way of side-tracking hobbies. Stay tuned!

Just to let everyone know, I still start this bus every couple weeks and it always fires up right away and the engine runs fine. I have yet to begin troubleshooting the brake buzzer issue (hydraulic brakes with a Bendix Hydro-Max electric backup system), but the engine-powered brakes do work fine for moving it around the yard. As of a few weeks ago, Iíve positioned the bus on a concrete pad behind the house so the grass on the side yard can re-grow during the summer months.

I intend to renew the registration sometime soon so I can start driving it around Florida when the mood strikes. We have a dog now and it would be nice to bring him along whenever we go out of town for a day and leaving him inside a car is obviously not possible.

I will post whenever something interesting happens, donít you worry about that.
