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.


SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2008 Ford Edge

Speaker 1: Today, on our 2008 Ford Edge, we're going to take a look at and also show you how to install the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO. This is a proportional, supplemental braking system with part number SM99251. The Stay-IN-Play DUO is an excellent solution for braking power in your towed vehicle. This helps us to stay in compliance with any state laws and also really helps getting everything slowed down in emergency situations. This proportional system ties directly into the vacuum system in the vehicle so you get full braking power applied to the brakes in proportion, or at the same speed in which you are trying to slow down your RV. So, for your standard slow speed stops, it will have that kind of braking effect in our car.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit Installation - 2008 Ford Edge

Host: Today on our 2008 Ford Edge, we're going to take a look at, and show you how to install the Road Masters Brake Light Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles. Part number is RM-88400.Now, this brake light relay is required on the Ford Edge because when the braking system in your towed vehicle presses the brakes, that signal will override the blinker signal that you have coming from your motor home. This means while you're making a turn and braking at the same time, your lights are not functioning properly without it. With this system install, we're going to have an automatic way to shut that signal off going to the brake lights.Now, the relay harness that we have here wires directly in line with the brake light switch. The green wire is going to face our switch, the black wire is going to face our bulb, and then with the ignition on, it's going to close the relay so that it can send that signal. To access the cold side wire, we need to get into the panel here underneath the steering wheel, and to remove the panel, we've got two 10mm screws to take out here.Now, with those removed, we want to pull out.


Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit 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 Roadmaster brake light relay kit for towed vehicles, part number RM-88400.Now I'd like to show you why we're going to need that brake light relay. We have a vehicle with a seven way on the back hooked up to our Jeep here. We got our lights on and our left turn signal going. Now but in the case that there's a supplemental braking system in our Jeep when it's being flat towed and we hit the brakes on our motor home, which will activate the brakes inside our Jeep. Our brakes are actually going to override the turn signal and it's going to go solid. The brake light relay is going to prevent our Jeep's brake signal from overriding the turn signal that comes on from our RV.


Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System Installation - 2008 Honda CR-V

Today on our 2008 Honda CR-V in conjunction with our Ford E450 chassis Ford motor home well be having a look at, and installing the Roadmaster InvisiBrake supplemental brake assistant, part number RM-8700. Here's what our InvisiBrake unit looks like installed in our vehicle. Now, what sets this apart from other braking systems on the market is that it's a permanent installation, and that there is no set up required once we install it. You don't have to flip any switches each time you're going to flat tow your vehicle behind your motor home. All you have to do is just hook it up and hit the road. Another thing that sets this apart from other systems on the market is this does offer us the most leg room and foot room underneath the dash once it's installed.
