We just paid Santiam RV $800 to transfer our AF1 from our HHR to our Odyssey; plus $415 for the new baseplate. I considered doing it myself but was afraid I'd make a fatal mistake.

I also installed the AF1 system in my Thor Palazzo/Ford Explorer. I had to make a bracket on the coach side as well as there was very little room under the coach. Ended up installing the brake module in the DEF compartment. On the toad side, had to make a bracket to install the control box top center radiator area. Most difficult was the tie in to the vacuum line but only because hard to reach & crowded. Had to drill a hole in fire wall to run the air line. Tied a wire directly into brake light switch & ran a wire to a dash mounted LED in the coach. When light in coach goes on I know brake pedal in toad has actually moved. System works very well!

You need to tap in to two hoses. The main supply is easy, because it is the only "big", hose (5/8" I think).
The smaller one is just a little trickier to find, but it is basically the one that goes to the brake chamber.
