Im about to make a decision on which way to go woth braking for my F-53 and my 2006 Jeep Commander and I'm very interested in the SMI solution..however, I am not a DIY when it comes to this type of thing and was wondering if anyone knew are there dealers to install these?

If you call SMI, they can tell you who in your area installs their products. I called them and got a couple of names but decided to do it myself. I wanted the 4-wire stay and play which requires wiring in the motor home and the toad. Their estimate for installation was 6 - 8 hours and since most shops charge about $100 per hour I decided to do it myself. I took me about 8 hours with most of it being wiring the toad.

There may be a dealer that can do installs in your market area so I would call SMI and find out for sure.

Owen,

John Bleakly RV does installs. Call Hank at 877-456-3700 and he can take of it. SMI also has a show team heading to Perry in a few weeks for the NAARV National rally if Hank does not work out. Call the office if you need more information.
