Brake pedal goes to the floor

Has anybody else experienced this. It seems like it only does it after I remove a large payload from the bed. (like firewood) The brake pedal will go to the floor but is fine after you push it again. Any Ideas?

How big of a load?

Sounds like one of the calipers is getting pushed back in a bit.

Just a bed load full of seasoned firewood. I doubt that it anywhere near the 1,000 lbs bed capacity limit.

Yes, I have experienced this as well. Mine doesn't go all the way to the floor, but the pedal does travel further to start braking. Almost feel like air in the system, but it's intermittent.

I'm not sure how load would effect the brakes... The brakes are hydraulic.

Would the extra load use any hydraulic power? Don't think so...

Maybe the park brake uses the same system as the hydralic brakes, this could cause the piston to relax and require a pump to bring the brakes back?

I have the same problem. It is very intermittent. I have bled the brakes but didn't help.
The dealer was going to ask the area service rep about it.

could it be minor brake fade? Although usage doesn't seem hard enough to warrant...

I know with cars the lines and even the pump would be places to start looking in a situation like this. Best to check the lines as a start
