SMI Air Force One Break-Away System

Does anyone have any experience with this system? Pro's / Con's? Any other breakaway systems on the market that have a similar installation or ease of use? I'm pulling a full size Hummer H2 behind my Outlaw and it's (yeah, about) time I install that pesky break away before I have to travel again. Thanks!

I have the AF1 on my 08 Explorer and it works fine. While I have (fortunately) never had a 'break-away,' I do know that when you pull that pin, the AF1 pulls the brake pedal down and you cannot move the vehicle. So, I'm thinking it would do a good job of stopping the towed vehicle in the case of a true break-away.

Mack,

i have had 2 different SMI products, currently have the Air Force One. no extra device to lay around the TOAD at all. The staff at SMI is super, they were very helpful with my trade of the prior unit.

by the way, how many years wearing that green suit, i have total of 32 both active and reserve.

Mack, For use behind your Outlaw you need an SMI stay and play duo. Air force one is for DP's. Stay&Play for gas units.

Thanks for the input guys.
Mike, I do have the Diesel, that's how I got referred to SMI in the first place. Seems like a good match so far.

As for the green suit time, 41 total <34 pay & retirement> years between active and reserve time (thought I was out last January, but USSOCOM tricked me into a last year) so I bump into mandatory retirement in another 98 days. Oh wait, did I say out loud I'm counting? Never mind.

Mack, Sorry about that I need to keep up with the times. I forgot about front engine diesel rigs. If the air force one is as good as my stay&play you'll love it.
