B r ake assist.

We have a 2011 Honda CRV. 2013 Winnebago journey.
Blue ox. Tow bar. Even brake by road aster.
I have it set on the lowest setting. At low speeds when I
hit the brakes it will put enough pressure to lock up the
tires. Not all the time. Kinda puzzled.
Oh I have read the instruction manual.
Had to add that because someone will say have you read the manual.
Thanks.

After running thru the setup procedure be sure and step on the brake pedal 3 or 4 times, if you don't the brakes will lock up the 1st time you apply the brakes in the MH.

How difficult is this unit to install, in days or hours.

I have a tow bar already installed, what is the time just for the braking system?

Just trying to figure if I want to do it or get the RV shop to do it.

Tks
