I'm close to ordering a Ready Brake and wondered how hard it is to hook up the toad to the motorhome relative to a standard tow bar. Can anyone share their experiences with hook ups or anything else regarding the Ready Brake unit? I can be contacted privately at jjbarbic@earthlink.net
Thanks
Jack

I installed the Ready Brake about 3 months ago on my Jeep Wrangler. I liked the non-envasive hook up, and the fact that it requires no electrical signal, switches, or mercury switches to activate the toad brakes. It also does not activate the brakes under light braking. The hook up is simple to the MH. The base plate hook up to the tow bar is the same as on any vehicle, and the only other hook up is a lanyard with a hook on the end. A snap clip attaches the lanyard to the loop that is mounted on your vehicle. Hook up is a snap, and the light hook up is easy as well.

The only thing I did on my hook up was to purchase a 6" drop/raise receiver to level out my tow bar arms. My Jeep bumper was quite a bit higher than the receiver on the MH, so the 6" raise leveled it out. The surge system works great, and no false or accidental braking incidents to burn up the tires, brakes or rotors of your toad.
