SMI Air Force One Braking System 2nd Vehicle Kit Installation - 2015 Ram 1500

Shane: Hi, I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today I'm going to walk you through the installation on Demco's Air Force One Supplemental Braking System on our 2015 Ram 1500.Adding a breaking system to your vehicle, one, is going to make it legal so you can flat tow your vehicle. Two, it's going to make it safer because you're not relying on the brakes on the RV to stop both vehicles.The Air Force One is going to be a proportional braking system. It's going to be designed to work with RVs that have air brakes. How it works is when you apply the brakes on the RV, the air pressure coming from the RV's brakes is sent through to the system mounted inside the towed vehicle, intern applying the brakes. It's going to be one of five main components in a flat tow setup for the Ram 1500.You're going to have your braking system. more

Keep in mind, this measurement may vary due to the tire size, hitch style, or after-market accessories. We'll start off our test fit in the drop position by sliding the shank of the weight distribution into the opening of our sleeve. We'll line up the 2 pin holes and then continue to slide the sleeve back into the hitch. We'll then insert the pin through the pin holes and then secure it with the clip on the other side. Now, there's a total of 7 holes on this weight distribution shank. more
