Roadmaster Brakemaster ???

Hi All

This really isn't a ? about the Breakmaster but more about my MH and if these components could be Breakmaster related.
I have a 2002 National RV Dolphin that purchased in 2006 used from a dealer. We've been renting vehciles when we traveled, went without when we stayed close to home or drove a second vehcile. That is a bit of a hassel so I decided we will start towing something and have been reading up on what I will need and how to do it.
My MH is in the shop having some repair's done to it so I can't easily go and check these things out so I thought I'd put them to you guy's.
First off my MH has a air compressor installed (it has horn's mounted on thre roof which I thought to be air operated) it also has a guick disconnect at the rear and also a single wire bullet connector, I somewhat remember see something that could the proportioning valve that I even questioned myself, (What is that thing?) I also THINK there is a small light on the dash that I do not know what it's for.
What do You think I have? It would be nice if I had most of the Breakmaster setup and the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that I do.

Thanks

It sounds like the makings of a Brakemaster setup.

That certainly sounds like the Brakemaster product - your description is identical to mine, except I don't have the compressor cause mine is a diesel with its own air system.

The "air horns" on a Dolphin are electric.

Thanks for the replies. I spent some time on the internet looking at different Brakemaster kits that are available and saw a picture of the kit that contains the air compressor and that is the exact compressor I have in my MH. They also had a pic of the proportioning valve in color (blue) and I do remember see it under the MH, I just never really looked at it that close. Neeedless to say I'm pretty confident that is what I have, so all I will need is the car setup. Less cost is good.

Thanks Again

It's a great set up. I've had it in two motorhomes and have over 8,000 miles on the toad from towing in a little over three years. I'd stick it on the next coach if there is one.
