Hi folks,
I just went to pick up my m/h where it is stored (about 7 miles) on the way home the steering started pulling to the left. When I arrived home smoke was coming out of the wheel well and there was a burning smell. I had my brake fluid changed and the brakes bleed a few weeks ago was wondering if that has anything to do with the problem.
By the way my e brake was not on but it felt like the brake was stuck?
Any thoughts on what it may be!
Thanks

Front caliper not releasing probably need to rebuild that caliper. Or replace it I would also have the right one looked at.
 
Thanks, alleygerry
I'll take it to the garage in the morning! We were leaving for a bike ride in Iowa tomorrow, I guess it is better to have it happen at home than on the road.
Thanks again!!

From experience:  Have your brake hoses checked as they have a tendency to collapse over time. This prevents the brake fluid not being returned to the system after having engaged the brakes.

Serious problem but a relatively cheap fix.
 
Same thing just happened to me.  Same chassis as yours.  It is in the shop right now.  I dropped it off last Thursday.
I haven't heard from the mechanic as to the cost.  I just said fix it.
