SMI Duo or AFO

I have a DP on a spartan chassis. Purchasing and installing (not to install myself) the AFO is going to be rather expensive if I include the 100 % recommended resevoir air tank sold seperately from spartan even though I believe AFO now comes with it's own tank. I would be nervous about not utilizing an air tank and tapping directly into the air lines. Additionally the install would be beyond my capabilities. As an alternative I've been considering the DUO on my DP, but am a little leary as it appears to be designed for a gasser. I am wondering if anybody has ran into troubles with the deceleration from the exhaust brakes kicking on the toad brakes on descents. My MH is currently in storage and I'm not sure if the brake lights are triggered with the exhaust brakes and I know that is the other requirement to kick on the toad brakes along with deceleration. The duo also seems like a much more manageble install.

I use he SMI. The brake light on the MoHo come on with the exhaust brake. Only when you press your foot break will the toad brake lights light up.

The AFO is highly suited and well integarted for use on the Spartan Chassis.

If you have any questions at all call SMI.
