Tow Vehicle Air brakes

I have a 2006 Dynasty and I need to know if anyone has installed a new air line from the rear brake relay valve to supply air brakes on the towed vehicle. Is it as simple as I think it should be? The Roadmaster Braking system is already installed on my tow car.

I installed an air line off the back of the coach and it was easy once I determined were to tap into the air system. It was harder to route the plastic line back to the end of the coach than it was to tap in to the air system. I have the M&G system and love it.

I installed the roadmaster air brake system on my 1999 Monaco Dip and on our current coach. The Monaco didn't have an unused port on the brake relay so I had to use a tee. Roadmaster wanted $35.00 so I went to a shop in Olympia and got one for $10.00. Our H.R. Scepter had an unused port and was a snap.
Air brake system works great, as some others have done I attached the (emergency) air cylinder to the brake piston as there was not much room for it under the hood of our toad. When the brake comes out of the toad for driving, so does the air cylinder.

My experience was the same as kketterling
