SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2016 Jeep Wrangler

Speaker 1: . Or 2016 Jeep Wrangler, you're going to be taking a look at. I'm going to show you how I installed the SMI Stay-In-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System. Part number SM99251. Speaker 2: Braking system is one five main components in a flat tow set up. The other four are going to be your safety chain, your tow bar, your wiring, and your base plate.Here in the front we're going to have our brake away switch.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be taking a look at the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number RM-88400.What the brake light relay is for; If you imagine having a braking system in the car and it's being flat towed behind an RV. Well, that braking system is tied into the electrical system with the RV. You press on the brakes in the RV, it turns on the braking system, which applies the brake. That brake light is going to come on on the towed vehicle.If you have the blinker on, that system pushes on the brake, that brake light is going to override that turn signal. What the relay does is it basically breaks that connection in the wire when it's being flat towed so that that brake light will not override that turn signal.To determine if a brake light relay is needed for your braking system here are a few questions to consider.This is what our brake light relay kit looks like when we get it. We're gonna have a few buck connectors, self tapping screws for our ground wire, ring terminal for our ground, 10-amp fuse, we're gonna have a fuse tap, a few zip ties, we're gonna have our relay, and then a piece of red wire.One thing I will say is this red wire is not going to reach from your relay to your fuse holder, so you're gonna need an extra piece.


SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2011 Ford Explorer

Speaker 1: Today on our 2011 Ford Explorer, you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install the SMI Stay-In-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System, part number SM99251.First, I want to talk about our operating unit. This operating unit is what makes sure that all the parts in the kit work together once it's installed. From our operating unit, you're going to have four wires. You're going to have a brown wire, red, black, and blue. You're also going to have a check valve and an airline fitting. Next is going to be our breakaway switch.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2011 Ford Explorer

Speaker 1: Today on our 2011 Ford Explorer you're going to be taking a look at, we'll show you an install of the Roadmaster and Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number RM-88400. Let's say we're flat towing our Ford behind our RV. We want our RV to take control of the lighting functions on our Ford. The braking system in the Ford applies the brake, the brake lights will come on. Without the Brake-Lite Relay, that brake light signal is going to override any turn signal coming from the RV. Once we install this it's going to break that signal on our factory wire and allow all of our proper lighting functions, turn signals, brake lights, running lights, from our RV to transfer through to our Ford while it's being flat towed.This is what our Brake-Lite Relay Kit looks like when we get it.


SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2016 Mini Countryman

Speaker 1: Today in our 2016 Mini Countryman, you're gonna be taking a look at, I'm gonna show you how to install the SMI Stay and Play DUO Supplemental Braking System, part number SM99251. One thing I want you to keep in mind is that the Stay and Play DUO Braking System is for RVs with electrical brakes. If your RV has air brakes on it, I would recommend going with the Air Force One. Now as far as the installation goes on this unit, it is a fairly straightforward installation. The directions are very well written and are very easy to follow. This system will take a couple of hours to put in, and can be done in your garage with the vehicle on the floor.We have the Stay and Play DUO installed on this Mini Cooper.
