    I'm no expert on the subject, but I'd imagine you'd have to flush/renew
    silicone brake fluid less often since, I've read/been told that it
    absorb water, which contributes to rust/corrosion, like standard brake

  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.

   Thanks for enlightening me on this; that's one of the benefits of this
list.. misconceptions get the chance to be revealed.
