Switching From an A to a class C with non air braking system

Just traded in my Class A for a simpler Class C. Not traveling as much. I have an Air Force One braking system on my X Wrangler. Has anyone converted or added air to the Toad or coach to use this braking system on a non Air brake Class C? I am open to any suggestions, I don't particularly like drop in systems, but would entertain electric if an air option is not available. Looking for experience or advice.

I don't know how you'd meter air pressure even if you installed an air compressor and tank in your 'C.' I'd recommend replacing the Air Force One system (sell it?) and buy a Ready Brake system. No electronics or anything fancy, but it works.

Thanks for the advice Bflinn,
I surmised as much but had to ask. I am impressed with the simplicity of the Ready Brake. Did you install yours?
Anyone need a used AFO?

I use the US Gear set up since it utilizes the power brakes on my Jeep Rubicon.
