Brake Fluid Loss

I have a 97 MC Prostar 190 with a single axle trailer, my problem is I keep losing brake fluid every year I have to add fluid. I've had it checked by a MC dealer and they can't find any leaks. I don't notice any oil slick when I launch or load the boat on the trailer.

Any one have any answers?

Welcome to the board. I went through some trouble with rusted lines last year, but it sounds like you've eliminated that from the list of potential problems. Wiser folks than I will chime in to be sure.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I would check the backside of the brakes. Look for signs of leakage. Look at the wheel cylinders for leakage also.

Disk brakes? As the pads wear it is normal for the fluid level to go down some. Bill Z
