Great Braking System Video

When will this system arrive on a Motorhome?

Wow - that is unbelivable. 60-0 in 150 feet or maybe less. So much for anyone walking around if this does come to MH's.

Make sure the DW has everything tied down. I can't imagine how much stuff can end up in the cockpit.

Normal skid distance for a vehicle going 60 MPH is only 198 feet on the "reference road" Now The problem with this figure is that there are roads where you skid farther, and roads where you skid less distance (Something called the coefficent of friction is less than or greater than 1.0) but finding a "1.0" road is dang near impossible, if not impossible.

So 150 feet might be the road.

NOTE: this skid distance assumes that ALL WHEELS are braking, if you do not have brakes on your trailer/towed,, THe distance goes way way up.

Certainly good braking, but I assure you that trailer was empty and I suspect he was overall as light as possible. But still impressive.

I can imagine the mess in the drivers seat of the car that was tailgating the truck!
