M & G Braking System

I have been looking for a braking system, the M&G looks very simple.

I wanted to check to see if anyone has had problems with the M&G Braking System.

Thanks


John

Well John, your post has now been up for over 24 hours and no one has responded saying that they have had problems. I think that, in itself, might be indicative of the the system's performance.

Seriously speaking though, I've had it on my Jeep for almost 2 years and love it. It's biggest downfall is that it is not compatible with all vehicles. Check the compatibility chart on their website to ensure it will fit your vehicle. I think it will also tell you how easy or hard it is to install on your particular vehicle. Good luck with whatever you decide.

Craig

I have had the M&G with break away for 12 years on 2 Jeeps. Never had a problem. Highly recommend.

I have been using the M&G for over 10 years now on the third vehicle with no problems. I am now going to put on another vehicle. It always works and proportional to the coach. Once installed it is easy to connect & disconnect just an air line. Simple to use! I have seen many of my friends use all of the different types of brake systems and I like the M&G the best. Everyone has there opinion on what to use and now you know mine.

M&G Braking System

I seems like a great unit, did you install it yourself?

Do you use the breakaway function?

Thanks


John

Yes, we do use the breakaway system. I had ours professionally installed.

I always hook up the break away...have never had a break away. Note if you have a battery disconnect, as I do, on my Jeep because key must be on to disengage steering lock. The break away must be connected to the positive terminal.
I had mine installed by Henderson Lineup in Grants Pass Oregon.

A professional towing shop recommended and installed mine. I am sure, like everything else, once you've done one you know what you are doing.

Thank you

We are winterizing this month so will not be using it until the new year.

We have no distributors for about 50 Miles, so I will order one and have the local repair shop install.

Thanks


John

I installed the M&G on my 2014 Ram 1500 last week. Very easy to install. Installing the breakaway was easy but more time consuming getting it into the spot I liked. A shop wouldn't spend time that way, they would slap it in wherever was convenient. I didn't have to do the coach as the previous owner used M&G for many years & miles.

I looked at several Air Force One installations & came to the conclusion that although it is a good unit it is a more difficult & time consuming install. I would use it if the vehicle wasn't compatible with M&G.

I have had it install on 4 different coaches and 4 different cars and love it. Just bought a new vehicle today and call them to install in my new truck. The best brake system on the market.

I had it for at least 5 years while towing my GMC Denali XL 4 wheels down and loved it.
