Can Roadmaster Even Brake be Used on a 2019 Ram 1500 with Advanced Brake Assist

Question:

Can I use this with a 2019 RAM 1500 that has Advanced Brake System? RAM Describes it as: Advance Brake Assist: If inadequate force is applied to brakes in response to signal from Full-speed Forward Collision Warning-Plus, Advance Brake Assist increases brake force automatically

Yes, the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400 can be used as the braking system for your 2019 Ram 1500. Since the ignition will be in the off position and you would have taken some specific steps to get the pickup ready to flat tow (check your owner's manual) the automatic braking that you referenced will not apply to this braking application.

A few things that you will need when using this system is the Stop Light Switch # RM-751000 to ensure that it operates properly and the 12V Outlet Kit # RM-9332 to keep the unit powered.

For a complete flat towing setup you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and possibly a high-low adapter. If you do not have all of these components just let me know and I can make some additional recommendations for you.

Since you plan on using the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400 for your 2019 Ram 1500 I recommend going with the Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 because it is easy to use after it is installed and it also allows you to install the Charge Line Kit # RM-156-25 so that you can make sure you don't drain your vehicle battery.

I have attached an installation video of the wiring kit being installed on a 2019 Ram 1500 that you can reference as well as a sample installation video of the charge line kit that you can check out.
