Smile Brake storage?

Hi!
I have just finished installing the bumper attachments, electrical wiring and wiring for the Even Brake towed brake on a 1999 Jeep Cherokee. Where would you recommend I put the Even Brake when we want to use the toad? We just purchased the Tiffin Allegro, our first motorhome.

Thanks,

Howard

I always just put mine in the back of the car. That way its always with the car. When at home I put it in my shop on the shelf.

Our MH has a small compartment in the basement, it's about one third the size of the other compartments. Our brake buddy fits in there real nicely.

I recommend you put the even brake back on the shelf at the store and use one of the less intrusive systems such as Air Force One, M&G, Us Gear or Invisible Brake or Ready brake.. Nothing to store with those systems. and no desire to "Just say the heck with it" on a short tow.

Ouch!

We have been full-timing since last March and usually spend no more than 7-10 in one spot. We inherited an Even Brake when we bought our MH ( while I would prefer an M&G or Airforce) it is really no big deal to install/uninstall it for travel.... It's not like getting 59' of rolling thunder ready to Move is an F1 pitstop!

Howard I find it convenient to to keep mine in the back of my PU. Did you get the case with it? If you have room, just slide it in the back of your Cherokee.
