Blue Ox Brake Safe towed brake?

Is anyone using this air brake setup or has anyone tried it?
Thanks, Bob

Looks like something that has to be removed each time the vehicle is finished towing.

Have you looked into M & G Engineering's brake product? M & G Engineering - Car Braking Systems: Home Page



This very elegant solution places a small device in-between your power brake booster and the master cylinder in the engine compartment. It is connected to your RV's brakes when you tow, and does not interfere in any way with the brakes when not towing. The brake pedal does not depress when the RV brakes, so no relay is required to keep the car's brake lights from interfering with the RV's brake and turn signals. A breakaway kit is available and the retail price of the base system is $640, one of the lowest prices on the market. I've put my hands on this at the dealer and it is much more rugged and a more solid install than some of the other permanent solutions.

I love the fact that you only have to disconnect the hose from the RV and you're ready to drive away...no fuss.

I love my M & G brake system!! Did much research and decided on that system due to ease of use each time hooked up or removed. Just one air hose and a breakaway cable is all that is needed. They have a compatibility chart on the web site for the cars it works on. 10,000 miles and works great, and is easy on toad brakes.

Good Luck

Dave

Thanks for the tips and link, according to the website they do not have this kit for my vehicle.
Air force one has one that will work so I may give it a try.

If you are interested, All Hitches by Dr. Hook in Pentiction is a dealer for the M&G product. I had Jason install the Baseplate and do all the wiring on my Honda CRV and was Very Impressed with their workmanship. They don't have a website as far as I know but their phone is (250) 490-8815.
