Many of us have expounded on the virtues of the SMI braking system. I think it is great too. But here is what happened this weekend.

I was getting ready to hook up and switched the unit on to test the vacuum. I decided to hook up in a level spot. Patty was to follow me. Well, everytime I hit the MH brakes the toad brakes activated. I stalled the toad twice. Patty was glad we weren't driving too far .

I can testify even unhooked the SMI system works great

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Yup, latched it was

Think of the tricks you could play on unsuspecting friends, with SMI installed in two cars
