Just finished installing an auxiliary brake on my motorhome and tow car. Though my towed weighs only about 3000 lb, I was amazed at how much stopping power is provided by braking the towed. The system works like a charm.

I'd like to know which one and how long too. Just to compare with my experiences with an SMI duo stay in play going into my '08 Vue. I don't want to admit it but as easy as it looks after, It took awhile.

Mountain Master out of AR. It took me about 12 hours to install but I took my time. This was the second one of these I had helped to install. The instruction manual is really very good but it cannot compensate for the tight spaces you run into in a small tow car.
