Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems RM-751476 Review

Today we're going to look at the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit. This kit is necessary if you're installing a supplemental braking system with a monitor, and the brake lights do not function when the vehicle's in the tow mode. Or if you're installing a supplemental braking system in the vehicles equipped with the retained accessory power feature. This feature shuts off power to the vehicle after about 10 minutes of the ignition being turned off. So basically with this stop light switch kit, you always know when the brake is being depressed, and you'll avoid costly damage to your vehicle. By tapping into your towed car's brake light switch, this kit will allow your RV's monitoring system to alert you whenever the brake pedal of your towed car's being applied. If your supplemental braking system isn't properly installed, it may be continuously pressing on the pedal, impeding it from fully retracting and possibly causing damage to your vehicle's tires or braking system. Other systems operate according to whether the air cylinder's extended, and provide no indication of what is happening with the pedal itself. This part will include everything shown here on the table. The stop light switch with the mounting hardware, wiring, and the connectors to install everything, this nice fuse tap with a 10 amp fuse, and a set of detailed instructions that'll describe how to install everything. Basically, this will activate your motor home brake monitoring system whenever a brake pedal in the tow car is applied, so it ensures that your supplemental braking system is functioning properly.


SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2017 Toyota Corolla iM

Today, on our 2017 Toyota Corolla IM, we will be having a look at and installing the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System, part number SM99251. Here's what our SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo operating unit looks like installed. This is the main unit, which controls our supplemental braking system in our vehicle. This is the G-Force 00:00:33 unit. Once you have this installed right here, you don't have to mess with this part ever again. Once it's installed, you're good. The part that you need to control is the actual G-Force operating unit.


SMI Air Force One Braking System Installation - 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Today in our 2017 Jeep Wrangler unlimited, which we're going to be connected to our American Eagle Motor Home on the Spartan chassis, we're going to be showing you how to install the SMI Air Force One proportional supplemental breaking system for motor homes with air brakes. Part number SM99243. Now, a huge advantage to the Air Force One braking system isn't only in how well it works, but how easy it is to connect. We don't have to worry about putting anything in the vehicle. Everything's already in the jeep, it's already on the coach. All we have to do is hook up our airline and our breakaway switch. We've got our easy-to-reach connector here on the back.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2017 Toyota Corolla iM

Today in our 2017 Toyota Corolla iM we will be having a look at and installing the Roadmaster Brake Light Relay Kit for towed vehicles, part number RM-88400. All right, with our brake relay installed, what it does is allow us to disable our vehicle's brake light switch when our vehicle is in tow mode, that way when our vehicle is being pulled behind our RV, and our RV has its turn signal on, and the brakes are depressed inside our vehicle by our supplemental braking system, we don't have to worry about our brake lights overriding the signal from our RV to turn our turn signal on. Now, it's really cool about this is the fact that once you unhook from your RV and you're ready to drive your vehicle around town at your destination, you don't have to worry about pulling any fuses, or putting a fuse back in, or flipping any switches. All you do, just turn your key on, and the relay automatically will send your brake light signal back to your brake lights in the back of your vehicle. To enter it back into tow mode, all you do is take the key out of the ignition, and there you go. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. Okay, now we're going to be working on the driver side floor board of our vehicle. We'll be working in the area right above our pedals here.



Blue Ox Patriot Proportional Braking System Installation - 2013 Ford Taurus

Today on our 2013 Ford Taurus we're going to take a look at installing the Blue Ox patriot radio frequency portable braking system, part number BRK201. Here's what our breaking system looks like when it's fully installed. Now this is going to give us breaking and it's going to be equal to the amount we're breaking in our motor home. Now, the nice thing about this is, is it is removable. All we have to do is unplug the power cable and our cable for our break away switch and then unhook it from the break pedal. One of the nice safety features is, it does have break away switch here.


SMI Air Force One Braking System Road Test

So we're taking our RV out with our towed vehicle with the braking system installed. The first thing you notice that this proportional braking system does is that when we're applying a little bit of brake in the RV we're getting the same amount of brakes being applied in our towed vehicle. If we're applying a lot of brake pressure, we'll get the matching amount of pressure inside the towed vehicle as well bringing our towed vehicle to a smooth and safe stop in an equal manner with our RV so we don't have to deal with feeling any jerking or pushing of the towed vehicle against the RV. You won't even really feel that it's back there.


Roadmaster BrakeMaster System Installation - 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche

Today on our 2005 Chevrolet Avalanche, we're going to be taking a look at and also showing you how to install the Roadmaster Brakemaster system with breakaway for RVs. This is going to work with air or air over hydraulic brakes and it is proportional. Part number is RM-9160. The Roadmaster Brakemaster is going to be the perfect solution for your supplemental braking needs when towing your vehicle behind your RV. We have a cylinder mounted in the floorboard of the vehicle that actually presses on the brake pedal any time we hit the brakes inside of our motor home. This is designed to work with air brakes or air over hydraulic brakes, giving us lots of options on different coaches we can install it on. Of all the braking systems I have installed that actually mount into the vehicle semi-permanently such as this one, it is one of the easier ones to do. We've only got one air line to run inside and one wire.
