Need coach air line for M&G brake system

My truck is already set up (previous motor home) and all I need to do is have the airline fitting installed on the motor home we're buying. Am told it's fairly simple - just tap into one of the rear service brake airlines and run a 1/4 inch line to the rear and mount the quick release connector. Has anyone done this?

I just had mine installed for our M&G. Note that to be DOT compliant you are supposed to have an isolation system (commonly called a ping tank) between the new hose and the coach air system. Spartan has one for sale for their chassis. SMI copied the Spartan design (with Spartan's blessing) and includes it with the Air Force One kit. I bought Spartan's tank; it comes with hoses and valves and a tank a little smaller than a football. It was about 2 hours to install (I paid someone else because I can't get under there).

Well Sir,
Yep, I did it on our '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the C-7 330HP CAT. It was a fairly simple install. The instructions from M & G were pretty good but, I had a question so, a quick call to M & G solved all questions. I didn't use the "ping" tank and all that stuff. I went directly from the ABS/Park brake unit line, (what the tech at M & G suggested) and, it's been working flawlessly. Here's a couple of pics of what I did but, not sure you'll get the "jist" of what I'm trying to show.

I agree with others. Simply call M&G and talk with them. They will not only send instructions, but they can sell you a kit that will provide everything you need to make the new coach operate the M&G cylinder. I did mine, and it was doable even for me.
