Choose your braking technology preference.
Full Braking Technology, also known as inertial style braking, fully employs the brakes when activated, taking the entire weight of the towed vehicle off of the motorhome brakes.
Proportional Braking Technology, when activated, performs the same braking force in the towed vehicle that is performed in the motorhome.
Install the AA battery (included) into the wireless remote system. Attach nonskid pad to the back of the remote system. Place remote and nonskid pad on a suitable semi-flat surface. The nonskid pad will secure the remote system.
If you wish to change the braking technology preference, press the Braking Mode Button to select "full" or "proportional" braking. The braking preference can be changed while traveling.
Adjust the Sensitivity Button either on the remote or on top of the main BrakeBuddy® unit. The sensitivity button determines how hard you must apply the brakes in the motorhome before the BrakeBuddy® will engage the brakes in your towed vehicle. The sensitivity of the BrakeBuddy® is adjusted by each push of the Sensitivity Button (Fig. 11). The more lights that are illuminated, the easier the BrakeBuddy® will activate. Each time the BrakeBuddy® is installed, the sensitivity setting remains in the last used setting. Start at setting #4 and adjust to your preferred setting as you are driving
(using the remote).
