Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2004 Jeep Liberty

Speaker 1: Today on our 2004 Jeep Liberty we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Brake Light Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number RM-88400.The main reason why you're going to want a brake light relay is that when we're going down the road towing our Jeep and we have our turn signals on, we're getting the correct signal. But, when we hit the brakes in our motor home and it applies the brakes on our supplemental braking system, the light's going to go solid and it's not going to blink anymore. Now, the reason why it goes solid is because it's overriding the signal from our RV, which is going to cause a lot of safety issues when we're driving down the road.Now, the brake light relay is going to install inside the car. Let's go ahead and make sure that it's working properly. As you can see, we have our turn signal on from our towing vehicle. If I step into our Jeep and push on the brake pedal, we can see that it's still blinking, so we know the relay is doing its job.


SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2017 GMC Acadia

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 GMC Acadia we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Proportional Braking System, part number SM99251. Our SMI Stay-IN-Play Supplemental Braking System is going to provide a proportional braking force. As I apply the brakes, it will apply the same amount of braking force in our towed vehicle.Now since this system is proportional, I do have the brakes applied, and you notice that there's no lights showing on the bottom. Because it's proportional, you have to be over 20 miles an hour for it to apply the brakes in the towed vehicle.To start our install, we want to come inside the vehicle, and we need to find a place to mount our G-Force box. Now you want to make sure that the SMI is facing the passenger side. If you're not going to mount on the passenger side, its got to face that way.


SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2017 Jeep Wrangler

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Jeep Wrangler we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System. Part number SM99251. Now our braking system is going to apply our brakes on our Jeep in proportion when we're flat towing it behind our RV. This box here is going to be our control box. It's not going to take up much room in our vehicle, and that's really all we're going to see. We do have an on and off switch and that's all we're going to have to do when we get ready to flat tow our vehicle.


RoadMaster Stop Light Switch Kit Installation - 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Speaker 1: Today our 2014 Jeep Wrangler we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster stop light switch kit, part number RN-751452.This is what you're going to get in your kit. Power wire, this is a wire that's going from the switch to your supplemental braking system that's going to be inside the vehicle. This is your brake switch, the bracket that's going to hold it and you also get a star bit, sorry, a star washer and then a nut.Now the reason I'm showing you this now is because it's kind of hard to see in there. You'll probably be able to see after I get it in, but I'm going to explain how this works now.What happens is on the inside underneath the panel here, you have a brake switch. On the top of that brake switch there's a bracket. On the top of the brake switch, there is a bolt.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2012 Jeep Liberty

Speaker 1: Today on this 2012 Jeep Liberty, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Brake Light Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles, part number RM-88400.When we don't have a brake light relay installed on our towed vehicle when we are towing it behind our motor home and our turn signal is on and then our brakes are depressed, we have the issue of our brake lights coming on on our towed vehicle overriding the turn signal from our motor home.Now with the brake light relay installed and operating when we step on the brakes on our RV with our turn signal on, our brake signal does not override the turn signal function when the brakes are applied inside of our tow vehicle with the supplemental braking system.Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. To begin our install, we'll find ourselves underneath the dash on the driver's side of our vehicle. We find this fabric panel that sits above where our feet rest while we're driving. We'll need to remove this. We have two plastic rivets. The way these work, use a flathead screwdriver, twist out the center section, and come behind it, and pull out the entire piece.



Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit Installation - 2017 GMC Terrain

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 GMC Terrain, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit, part number RM-751439. Now the reason why we needed to install that stop light switch on our Terrain here is because it's going to tap into our brake switch so that our motorhome side, the indicator light will let us know when the brake pedal is being depressed. A lot of supplemental braking systems are going to take that signal from the way the cylinder is reacting and not actually tell you what's going on with the pedal. So if you're cylinder's improperly installed and it's going to hang the brakes up just slightly, you're not going to know until you either wear out your brakes or you have some flat spots in your tires from dragging your vehicle down the road.Now our brake light switch when properly installed and adjusted is going to let us know the actual operation of the pedal and not just the pulley or the braking system itself. That way we know when our brake pedal is being applied and when it's released on the inside of our motorhome. Now that we've gone over the benefits and how it works, let's show you how to get it installed.


SMI Air Force One Braking System Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, which we will be connecting to the 2004 Alpha on the Freightliner XC chassis, we're going to be showing you how to install the SMI Air Force One. Part number is SM 99243. One of the great things about the Air Force One system is once you've got your tow bar and stuff hooked up, you only have two connections that you need to make for your system to work. One will be our airline, just going to be a quick plug-in on each side, and the other is our breakaway switch in case we have an accidental disconnection. The rest of the system's going to stay in place so there's no adjustments. There's no putting things in or out or anything like that necessary.Now we'll have somebody in the coach.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2014 Ford Edge

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Ford Edge, we'll be having a look at, and installing the Road Master Brake Light Relay Kit from Tow Vehicles. Part number RN-88400.So, when we don't have a brake light relay installed on our towed vehicle, when we are towing it behind our motor home, and our turn signal is on, and then our breaks are depressed, we have the issue of our brake lights coming on, on our towed vehicle overriding the turn signal from our motor home. Now, with the brake light relay installed and operating, when we step on the brakes on our RV with our turn signal on, our brake signal does not override the turn signal function when the brakes are applied inside of our towed vehicles with the supplemental braking system.Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. To begin our install, we find ourselves underneath the hood of our Edge on the driver's side near our battery. This brown wire here that I have in my hand is a wire that we passed through our firewall in a grommet behind our battery. If you remove your battery, you have easy access to this grommet.
