Towing Brakes

Towing Brakes
My 2011 Georgetown 378 is about 3 months old and I have towed on a dolly an old Odyssey which I've traded for a 2010 Ford Escape. Looking for towed vehicle braking system. I have read a lot about the SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo which is transferable to other vehicles. Anyone have any input on this system or could you direct me to a forum that has discussed it. Appreciate it, thanks.

Check out the Unified Brake System from US Gear. Simple to hook up and does a great job. I'v had mine for 5 years and it's on my 2nd Toad. It saved my rear a few times too!

jerry, I have the roadmaster "even brake". It works excellently in my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee. This unit can be transferred to any car and the remote monitor in the motorhome tells you what is happening in the toad! I installed it myself in about two hours. The only hitch, pardon the pun, was locating the transmitter. I finally found that it worked best on the dash of the Jeep. Good luck.
