Video Transcript for Review of Roadmaster - Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-98400

Today we're going to take a look at the Roadmaster even brake second vehicle kit. Now this is going to allow you to set up your second vehicle to work with your even brake since you already have that, you like it, how it works and how portable it is. So let's get our second vehicle set up.Now this is going to be for the serial numbers on the even brake that are below 27,496 or two seven, four nine six. If your serial number on your even brake is at that or below, this is going to be a fit for you. But if it's above that number, you'll need the newer version of the second vehicle kit. That part number is RM-98450 so just want to get that out of the way right off the bat.But this is going to come with everything we need to get our second vehicle set up.

We'll have our new breakaway switch and the cable going between that and our RV, so in the case of an accidental disconnect, our even brake will apply the brakes and bring it safely to a stop.We'll have our cable to go in between our breakaway switch and our transmitter. The transmitter's going to connect to our even brake and help us get connected with our RV as well. So if we're in our RV and we want to slow down the towed vehicle, whether it's starting to sway, kind of wag the dog, we can hit the brakes in our RV and apply the brakes in our towed.We'll also have our relay bundle here. This is going to have a little a lot of wiring connections to make. A lot of these are already pre-stripped and connected so that makes it a little easier on you for the install process.We'll have a fuse holder here so we can replace a fuse or tap into that fuse and a 10 amp fuse comes with that.

Whenever you're replacing your fuse tap, you'll want to make sure that the fuse you remove goes in this lower slot and then the new one or the one that you're going to be using for the accessory goes in the top.If this doesn't fit, if you have the smaller version of fuses on your vehicle, your second vehicle, there is a smaller option here. There's a little terminal that you can put straight on the fuse that you remove and it'll go right into the portion there, so that's kind of an alternative style that comes with it.We'll have a hook and loop kit here or a set so you can put that on the back of our transmitter to get it up and out of the way. And then we'll also have a little piece of foam there to protect any of our components that we need to.A detailed set of instructions specifically for installing our second vehicle. So you can see this kit is going to go with the even brake that came with the black cable, not the blue cable. Again, you'll want to refer to the instructions to make sure that this is a fit for you, but if it's below that serial number that I mentioned earlier, 27,496 this will work out for you.We'll get our bolt, grommet and nut, a couple of very small zip ties so you get everything buttoned up, some screws for our transmitter as well, and an additional ring terminal there.So it should be just about anything you need to get this installed.

If you find that you're missing some pieces or you need some additional hardware, you can always check out etrailer.com for any of your towing needs.That's going to do it for our look at the Roadmaster even brake second vehicle kit.

Product was spot on ..no instructions on brake light relay switch...had to download it from roadmaster ..etrailer shipped fast but used surepost but it was free.. also etrailer has some good videos of install. 352148

This wired into my Mini Cooper easily enough. The Breakaway Switch works as it should, however the brake assist does not work as the brakes in the motorhome are applied. Apparently the brake assist works from the "powered" brake switch relay and the switch in the Mini is not powered without the key on. I do not have brake lights or turn signals from the Mini either. I use remote magnet lights for turn and brake lights. I suppose that I could figure out how to make this work but with a 2.500 pound car it seems that I have enough brake power in the motorhome without the assist of the brakes in the Mini. 616763

The same product offered other places but at a lower price than most. It was slightly higher than the lowest price I found but with free shipping it beat everyone else by far. It arrived when stated. Communication between e-trailer and me was good. The instructions that came with the 2nd car kit was confusing but called Roadmaster direct and was helped to get the install done correctly. The product is of high quality. Good Job. 226036

  • Recommendations for Compatible Flat Towing System on 2019 Chevy Equinox
    The Roadmaster Brake Master systems can work on a 2019 Chevy Equinox, but only if the motorhome has air brakes. With hydraulic brakes on your 2000 Rexhall, you will instead want a system that is compatible with both your motorhome and Equinox and adding an air compressor to your motorhome will not allow proper braking function. Instead, I recommend using the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 along with the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751489. This...

  • Need Replacement Parts for Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 Supplementary Braking System # RM-9400
    Flat-towing a vehicle behind a motor home requires several components. Those are a motor home-mount tow bar, a compatible vehicle base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring (to operate the tail lights on the toad) and the supplementary braking system, such as the Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 that you have. The linked article covers each of these in detail. The Roadmaster Second Vehicle Kit you reference, part # RM-98400, includes a complete breakaway kit (wiring harness, cable and switch),...

  • How Does the Roadmaster Even Brake Supplemental Braking Send a Signal for Vehicle to Motor Home
    The Roadmaster Even Brake, # RM-9400, uses a wireless transmitter in the vehicle and a receiver in the motorhome. The Receiver lets you know the Even Brake is working properly by lighting up when the brakes are being applied and also notifies you when the towed vehicle battery voltage is low. The second vehicle kit that you referenced, # RM-98400, provides the wiring and transmitter for another vehicle so you can use the in-cab monitor and the same braking unit for more than 1 vehicle.

  • How to Install the Roadmaster Even Brake 2nd Vehicle Kit # RM-98400
    To use the Roadmaster Even Brake Braking System, # RM-9400, in your 2011 HHR, you will simply install the braking system using the installation instructions that came with the Even Brake system. The only difference in the installation is that you will use the 2nd Vehicle Kit, # RM-98400, instead of the parts that were included with the Even Brake system. The first step to install this kit is to find a suitable location for the breakaway switch and the ICX transmitter. The breakaway switch...

  • Installing Replacement Breakaway Switch for Roadmaster Even Brake and Brake Pro Braking Systems
    I will be happy to explain the installation of the breakaway switch. First, mount the break away switch at the front of the vehicle, on the drivers side. Choose an area you can easily reach, with a surface of sufficient strength to hold the switch firmly in place, so that the break away pin (Figure 1) will pull freely from the switch. Mount the switch in a horizontal position, with the break away pin facing toward the motorhome. Ensure that the break away pin can be pulled freely away from...

  • Recommended Brake Light Switch For 2014 Mini Cooper S with Roadmaster Even Brake Supplemental System
    For your Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400, the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751469 is the part you are seeking. This will give you the bracket and the 2 prong switch you mentioned for your 2014 Mini Cooper S. You will also need the 12 Volt Outlet Kit, 20 amps # RM-9332 to provide power to your system.

  • Could Monitor System of Roadmaster Even Brake Be Used with Brake Pro System
    The monitor for the Brake Pro 9300 is a much simpler design as it's basically just a red LED that lights up that you can see in your rear view mirror which we offer as a replacement part # RM9333-1. The Even Brake uses a transmitter and receiver setup that won't be able to be used with the Brake Pro. Only solution for a wireless style of monitor is going to be to upgrade to an Even Brake # RM-9400.

  • How Does Roadmaster Even Brake Know When to Apply Brakes and How Hard to Apply Them
    The Roadmaster Even Brake part # RM-9400 uses two things to know when to start applying the brakes and how much braking power to apply. The ICX box of this kit attaches to the brake light switch of the towed vehicle which tells the Even Brake that it's time to start looking for braking action when the stoplights come on and then the inertia sensor of the unit senses how hard you are applying the brakes and puts a proportional amount of braking on the towed vehicle.

  • Replacement RoadMaster Even Brake Transmitter and Receiver
    There are parts which could work for you, but there is not a pressure switch available as a replacement part for the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400. What you may be asking about is the Even Brake Transmitter and Receiver # RM-9430; the Transmitter # RM-9420 is also available separately.

  • Even Brake Supplemental Braking System Interferes with Home Security System
    The Even Brake, # RM-9400, sends a wireless signal to the receiver in the motorhome hand held unit and that signal can interfere with other signals. It sounds like the unit is sending a signal either looking for the hand held unit or something similar. You will want to unplug the transmitter from the power source and Even Brake. With no power the unit should not be able to send a signal.

  • Can an Even Brake Braking System be Installed on a 2014 Jeep Cherokee without the Break Away
    Basically, it will not work if you do not install the brake away part of the braking system. They are required by law and the unit is supposed to show an error if the break away is not installed. The indicator that comes with the Even Brake # RM-9400 is there to show you that the brake pedal of the vehicle is actually moving. The handheld unit allows you to adjust power and tells you if there are any errors. These items do not affect the lighting system needed between the RV and toad. The...

  • Installing Roadmaster Even Brake 2nd Vehicle Kit on 2014 Chevrolet Equinox
    To install the Roadmaster Even Brake 2nd Vehicle Kit # RM-98400 on your 2014 Chevrolet Equinox, you will just need to use the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751439 and the 12 Volt Outlet Kit # RM-9332. The Stop Light Switch Kit will allow you to tap into your vehicle's brake-light switch so that the RV's monitoring system will alert you whenever the brake pedal of the towed car is being applied.

  • Installation Of Roadmaster Even Brake 2nd Vehicle Kit For 2007 Chevrolet HHR
    I have attached an installation video for the Roadmaster Even brake 2nd Vehicle Kit,part # RM-98400. This video explains how you run the wires for the breakaway kit as well as connecting the IXC terminal. When working with electrical connectors I recommend using dielectric grease like part # 11755. This keeps dirt and moisture out of the electrical connections and helps prevent corrosion. Although the vehicle is different, the installation should be similar for your 2007 Chevrolet HHR.

  • Will the Roadmaster Even Brake Work on a 2001 Chevy Tracker
    If you already have a Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400 and want to move it between 2 different vehicles then you would use the second vehicle kit # RM-98400. But if you do not have any braking system then you would not install RM-98400 and instead would get the Even Brake # RM-9400. If you go with the Even Brake then a 12 volt power port, # RM-9332, is recommended because the one in the vehicle, if equipped, will not be active when the vehicle is being flat towed.

    The Roadmaster Even Brake Supplemental Braking System # RM-9400 features an inertia sensor that activates the towed vehicle's brakes based on deceleration. When you hit the brakes in your RV or otherwise slow down, the system automatically applies a proportionate amount of power to the brakes in the towed vehicle (a light tap on the brakes in the RV gives you a light tap inside the towed vehicle while slamming on the brakes in the RV will trigger the same amount of braking force in the...
