While braking my G30 (lazy daze RV) I felt a vibration on what I believe was the front passenger wheel (rotor perhaps) When I arrived at my final location I heard a noise when I pressed on the brake pedal and I felt it as well. It made the same sound as a low fluid power steering. My friend noticed a lot of fluid leaking. I check the brake fluid reservoir and both had plenty of fluid
I did find one leak. It cine from the master cylinder to what I believe is the steering pump or box. There is another leak towards the passenger front wheel. I know with that with the hydro-boost the steering and brakes somehow work together. But is it possible to lose brake due to lack of power steering fluid? I do not believe I have had any issues with the steering. I have replaced the master cylinder and the hydro-boost within then last two months on a separate issue. I do not believe either were bled correctly.
Do you

What the picture is of the power steering pump it looks like and check to see if lines are tight as well as clamps they may not be. See the two pictures on how to check the hydro-boost. If either of these fail replace it. Also, make sure steering pump is good with correct pressure. Of course if leaking power steering fluid fix that.
