Hi all and pardon my ignorance. I have much to learn.

We have agreed to a price on our new (used) Bounder 34V and now have to start getting things set up. I am pretty sure I want a braking system for our Honda CRV toad. Based on preliminary looking I like the SMI, stay-in-play I think it is called. It has a cylindar that hooks to the toad brake pedal and can stay in the toad even if it is being driven.

Does anyone have any experience/opinions with this system (or others for that matter) and a CRV?

Thanks in advance,

Hack

Had that exact system installed at Newmar International rally in Vt and love it.
Just plug in Cord when hooking up tow bar and switch toggle switch below steering column in toad and your good to go.
Unit mounts right under drivers seat on toad out of the way, Has remote sensor in Motorhome to let you know when brakes are on in toad.Sensitivity cannot be adjusted from motorhome while underway with the stay & play but after a few short trips with minor adj to knob on unit in toad haven`t had to touch it since.
If and when I change toads I would definately swap this out or replace it with another. Great product
My CRV is a 5 speed so I do feel the piston when I use the clutch but not a problem
