I know you will be very happy with it. One word of advice / caution, the box with the toggle switch must be tilted slightly forward to work properly. The place that installed mine mounted it without any forward tilt and I had to adjust the control knob "full on" to get any braking. I dropped the front down about 1/4" inch and it now works as it should.

All self installed for under $1400.00. Check their website at Readybrake RV Tow Bars and RV Surge Braking Systems for Car Towing - Night Shift Auto
No boxes on the floor, simple to get ready to roll.



Rick, thanks for the photos (which really help) and the post. I just started looking at changing over from an 18' auto trailer (with a 3k+ BMW on top) to a more practical 4 on the road Jeep. My frustration has been trying to tie all the information together (I'm a visual guy) and this really helps. Talking to Jeep dealers in general, results in a lot of wide-eyed "huh?" looks in my experience. One final question I'm still coming to grips with is this - I already have a brake controller on the bus, load distribution system, ect. I'm assuming that all these systems from not only your post, but some of the others, take into account the brake controller interfacing with the mechanical systems mentioned. Is that pretty much a given?

The beauty of the Ready Brake system is that there is no interface. A simple cable runs from the front of the toad to the actual brake pedal. The brakes are actuated by the cable which in turn is activated by the receiver on the Ready Brute Tow Bar. Going to their website will show you how simple and effective the whole thing is. I think it is also very well priced. If you need further assistance with your setup, please pm me and I'll do anything I can to assist you.
Cheers
