Air Force One brake controller

Having the SMI Air Force One brake system installed on my 2012 American Revolution 42W and my Ford Flex tomorrow. I watched the install video a couple of times and was going to do it myself but not wanting to crawl under the coach decided to have my local dealer install it. They say it is about a 6 hour install. I paid about 950.00 for the kit and the labor rate at my dealer is 125.00 per hour. Why do I feel like I am getting shafted? I will report on how I like it when I get it back. We will see.

I installed mine and it did not take me that long. You just have to follow the install instructions to the letter. Mine has been in for almost two years with no problems.

I also did my own install. Took at most 1-2 hours on the coach.
Spent at least 2-3 hours on the suburban side.

Well my dealer did a nice clean install and the system seems to work well. Doing a weekend run next week and will see what I think. My bill was higher than I was expecting but then with a labor rate of 125.00 I should have expected it.
