I have an older AFO without the reed switch on the brake actuator cylinder. I sent the following questions to SMI after reading the INSTRUCTIONS.

I have the older cylinder without the reed switch and a Honda CRV which always provides power to the brake lights no matter the position of the ignition key.

1. It would appear that the “UNIVERSAL” (Step 2C) installation would be perfect.

2. The instructions are a bit fuzzy on the receiver’s buzzer feature. It would appear that the light would activate immediately but the buzzer would allow 7 continuous seconds of activation before it went off. Is that correct?

3. Has your testing shown a nominal, maximum distance between the receiver and transmitter before it loses connection? Obviously it should have the ability to work behind a 45’ motor home and towed vehicle on the longest tow bar set-up possible. The side benefit would be if it had enough “punch” to activate the buzzer after a break away and perhaps a few hundred yards of separation after 7 seconds. If it does…BIG BONUS!
