SMI Air Force One Braking System 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 SMI Air Force One supplemental braking system for motor homes with air brakes, part number SM99243. In this particular case we're working with a 2007 Fleetwood Revolution motor home on a Spartan chassis.The Air Force One is a great solution for those of you that need a supplemental braking system to help you keep safe and legal when flat towing your Jeep Liberty behind your motor home that has air brakes. The greatest thing about the Air Force One is that there's only one difference that you have after you've already hooked your Liberty up than how you did it before and that is your air line umbilical between your motor home and your Liberty. You'll just simple remove the dust cap that protects the fitting on the back of the motor home, you'll push in the hose, pull back and make sure it's secure, and we'll do the same on the Liberty. Just like that you're now ready to tow. The Air Force One even comes with a breakaway switch and a cable to attach to your motor home so in the unlikely event that your Liberty ever became disconnected from the motor home the breakaway switch would become pulled and it would apply the brakes in the Liberty, bringing it to a stop.Here's what the SMI Air Force One looks like installed on our Liberty.

Roadmaster BrakeMaster System Installation - 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Speaker 1: Today on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with our 2016 Jayco Seneca motorhome on a Freightliner chassis, we will be having a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster BrakeMaster System with BrakeAway. Part number RM-9160.Here's what our Roadmaster BrakeMaster looks like installed. As you can see, we have this very substantial cylinder here, which will apply pressure to our brake pedal to apply the brakes in our Wrangler. This will give us the necessary and required supplemental braking system that we're looking for, which is in many cases required by law in most states and Canadian provinces.This is a truly proportional braking system. This will only apply our brakes when the brakes are being applied on our motorhome, so you don't have to worry about any false braking. By proportional, we are getting equal braking pressure to what the air brakes are being applied on in our motorhome.Now when compared to other braking systems, which are permanently attached inside your vehicle, when this is not in use, we don't have to worry about having a cylinder that's clamped to our brake pedal with an anchor point to our firewall.

Roadmaster BrakeMaster System Test Course

Speaker 1: 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. We won't even really feel that it's back there.

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

Speaker 1: Today on our 2011 Ford Edge, we will be having a look at and showing you how to install the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System. Part Number SM99251. Here's what our SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO looks like installed. This operating unit here, this is the heart of our system. This is our unit, which provides a vacuum pump, which supplies vacuum to our brake booster through this hose here, making it easier for the system to depress the brake pedal when the engine's off and not supplying back into the booster.Our operating unit also supplies airflow to our cylinder mounted inside the vehicle, which depresses our brake pedal for us. This is our air cylinder, which is clamped to our brake pedal, and is attached to our vehicle's firewall via a cable.

Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2018 Ford F-150

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F150, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Brake-Lite relay kit for towed vehicles, part number RM-88400. First let's talk about what comes in our kit. You're going to have your brake relay, which is going to attach to your brake light switch, your fuse tap, your 10 amp fuse, a few butt connectors, ring terminal, your self tapping screw, and a little extra wire.So let's talk about what our vehicle's going to do if we don't have our brake relay installed. Let's say you have a brake system on your towed vehicle or on your Ford. You're towing it down the road, when you hit your brakes in your RV, the brake lights are going to come on in your truck or in your towed vehicle. However, when you hit your brakes and you turn on your blinker in your RV, you're only going to see the brake lights in the truck because the brake light signal is overriding that turn signal.

Roadmaster Even Brake Portable Braking System Installation - 2012 Jeep Liberty

Speaker 1: Today on our 2012 Jeep Liberty, we'll be reviewing and installing the Roadmaster Even Brake braking system, part number: RM-9400. And we'll be using the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for towed vehicles, part number: RM-88400.This is a portable, easy to adjust braking system that uses an inertia sensor in the towed vehicle to detect deceleration. Like many other modern brake systems, this one is a proportional braking system that ensures that your towed vehicle's brakes are applied with an intensity that matches the slowing or stopping action of your towing setup. The result is improved control, better stopping and less wear on the brakes of both your vehicle and your RV.This system has an easier install than some of your others that require many electrical connections and tapping into your vehicle's systems. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, then this kit will be a good one for you.The included monitor mounts in your RV and keeps you updated on the status of the Even Brake. This wireless system relies on the ICX transmitter, which is mounted in the towed car to send signals to the monitor.

Roadmaster InvisiBrake Braking System Installation - 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Speaker 1: Today on our 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which we'll be hauling with the 2017 Coachmen Pursuit on the Ford F53 Chassis, we're gonna take a look at and show you how to install the Roadmaster InvisiBrake supplemental breaking system. Part number is RM-8700.Now, as we apply our brakes in our Coach, you'll see the InvisiBrake apply the brakes in our Jeep. Now we're can apply the brake here in the Coach and watch for the red light to come on. There'll be a slight delay. Then as we release the brake, again with the slight delay, we should see that go off. Now the InvisiBrake also helps prevent overworking of the vehicle's braking system.

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Invisibrake Supplemental Braking System, part number RM-8700. And to help us in our installation we're also going to be using the replacement vacuum line and rubber hose for the Invisibrake System, part number RM-452136, and the Roadmaster stop light switch kit, part number RM-751489.Here's what our Invisibrake looks like when it's fully installed. The nice thing about this is is once it's installed there's nothing you're going to need to do. No temporary boxes to remove. No adjustments to make. It's just put it in, get it installed, get it adjusted to the braking you like, and you're done.

Now the Even Brake has a universal design, and it's going to work very well with many different applications.

The rear brace is fully adjustable, so you have a nice secure content point against your seat.
