Read my other post on this.  Since silicone fluid doesn't absorb water, any 
condensation that gets into the system pools in the pipes and causes 
corrosion there.  This is much worse in trailer queens that are not driven 
much, because the brake fluid isn't being pumped around.  

Change ALL brake fluids every two or three years.
