Toad Wiring and Braking Installation

Moving forward after the initial purchase of our MH and our 2012 Chevrolet toad, I am interested in purchasing the NSA emergency braking equipment and supplemental braking equipment. I've read their installation/sales literature, however, I have not found any mention of the status of the cables and other attachments at the front of the toad when the toad vehicle is disconnected from the RV. Also, the cables appear to remain attached to the brake pedals, i.e. when the toad is in use away from the RV? If so, then the cables dangling in front of the toad would seem to be in constant motion from the use of the brake. The limited appearance of the base plate tabs on the toad would be no problem, however, I am concerned about the visibility of the brake cabling at the front, since we intend to use the toad as a primary vehicle when not on the road.

Can anyone give me any information about their experience with the NSA products as well as help me visually see the up stored front cables, when we are using the Equinox for everyday use at home. Thanks.

Different Toad, but I tuck the brake cable behind my front license plate. For the emergency cable, I put a small Velcro strap thru it and around one of the bars in my Honda grille. It's almost invisible.

Different toad as well but I just completed my install this weekend on my Subaru Outback (see my writeup here).

Here's a shot of the front of the car with the loops tucked.

And here's one with them saying hi.

I don't know what you have to work with on your car, but I'm pleased with how mine turned out.

Thanks to both responses. NSA equipment seems to be the lesser cost of the braking systems available. As long as there appears to be no issues with their functions, I am going to order the supplemental brake assist and the emergency breakaway components. Hopefully, the installation instructions will be easy to follow. Thanks again.
