1: Ready Brake.. this works with nearly all vehicles, it is "installed" once and simply hooked up after that.

2: M&G, Works best if you have a diesel pusher. Installed one time, then plug in to use

US-Gear Unified Brake Decelerator.. Works with ALL types of motor homes owing, install once and plug in.

NOTE: THE MG, which is an air over hydrauilc, uses tow vehicle air brakes to operate towed brakes... HOWEVER if your towed has hydrauilc brakes,, THey have an adapter for that too (Air compressor and controls.)

Home is where I park it!

Wrangler brakes

We have the SMI system and are very happy with it.

Thinking about getting the Brake Ready after using the Brake Buddy (which I dislike very much). The NSA site claims that the Brake Ready will not engage when going down hill. So, is there anybody that has a Brake Ready and dispute or confirm what wa8yxm claims about this system?

I use the M&G on a 2003 Trailblazer and it works great! I'm switching to a Jeep this fall and will continue with this brake system. They make models for most of the Jeep models.

Check out the Unified Brake from the US Gear website. It's a great system, easy to use, and can be moved from one Toad to another. I've had mine for 5 years and recently moved it from my Subaru to my Jeep.
