We take a lot of pictures while camping and my wife wants to put together an album for every year. She says this one will for sure be included. You've got to take the good with the bad in life I guess.

Last year I replaced all the lines on my truck. This year I had one on the rear axle split with predictable results. At NAPA I built a plug that screws into the rear distribution block. Unscrew the offending line, screw in the plug, bleed the other wheel and off we go on three truck brakes. Works until I can get it fixed. You can also build a plug to block off half of your master cylinder so you can get it home or to a safe spot to deal with it.

All vehicles rust those out brake lines along the frame. If you have a vehicle ten years old (arbitrary number that has worked for my trucks) you are probably on borrowed time.

In an emergency you can always use the parking brake but people usually begin to panic
and also can turn the ignition key off and slam it into Park in a extreme emergency!!!

It is unfortunate that most people do not know what or where the park brake is.. and have never used it.. this according to my service shop as they find most of them ceased from lack of use.

This happened to my old 2002 Suburban, the DW pulled out of the driveway and stepped on the brakes. The brakes went down to the floor but she managed to apply the E-brakes. Most of the fluid came out, the brake line was rusted from underneath near the frame rail by the master cylinder. This has happened to a couple of friends (not just a GM problem). It seems more prevalent in the Northeast region. Feds end GM brake-line rust probe, advise owners to wash underneath their cars and trucks

I had the wheel cylinder fail on my 99 suburban a few months ago. Luckily I was towing my trailer to a maintenance shop. Its brakes eventually stopped me. But only after I tapped the guy in front of me. Had to buy him a new bumper. And I replaced the entire brake system with everything new, except the lines. I closely inspected them and they were all in good shape and I let them ride. After reading this thread I'm thinking I should revisit this issue.
