Roadmaster Brakemaster install HELP

I need to install my Breakmaster breaking system In my 2013 GMC Terrain .I would like to hear from anyone who has done this install or anyone who has had it installed. My question is where did you mount the breakaway cylinder and how did you get the air hose threw the firewall.

Thanks
John

There was a thread in this forum some time ago where the owner mounted the breakaway cylinder on the air cylinder that activates the brake pedal. It was a clean installation and only required a single tube to be run from the coach to the toad. The person put a tee in the line to the brake cylinder running a second short line to the breakaway. The post even included photo's of the setup.

I've tried using the "search" feature, but it isn't working correctly. I seem to get totally unrelated posts regardless of the key words I enter.

Here's a link to the thread that "Hikerdogs" mentions. Pictures of piggyback cyclinders are on posts #9 and #12.

John I have installed my Brakemaster breakaway in a 2010 Equinox about the same as your GMC along with 5 other brands, I like to run the air line through the main wire harness under the steering wheel shaft by using a ice pick to make a hole in the rubber boot and use a jell that is used to slick up electric wires to make it easer to run the wires in conduit, I also run the tubing from the inside by slicing a sharp end on tubing and coating with the jell pushing it through the rubber boot I also mounted the male air connect to the driver kick panel. On our Equinox I just stuck the air cylender on the driver side in the the best I remember by the battery or air cleaner.

Thanks all. The job sounds as expected a PITA This will be the 5th toad I've installed this brake in. I was hoping for a unused rubber plug. The idea of the breakaway on the ram seem good on the surface but that means running a wire threw the firewall
