Air Connection 2020 Winnebago Forza 34t

This is a very very rookie question, we recently switched from 5th wheel toy hauler, to class A DP. I am getting our new to us Jeep set-up for flat towing and wanted to install the air force one system air brake assist. Where is the air connection on the Forza? I have scoured the internet with no luck, and hope the good folks in this forum can shed some light. God Bless

Your installation manual from AF1 should show you where and how to hook up the air line. If you donít have a manual, contact AF1 to get one. You might be able to download it from their web site. That is how I got one for my new Ford Explorer. It will hook to the metered air from the brake system.

I typed all of the below and then reread your post and saw it was a 2020 Forza, I originally had it in my mind that it was a 2008. Your coach may have it, but it's a manufacturer's decision to pay for the upgrade to the chassis. If you have one, it will be a brass quick connect at the rear of the coach by the receiver.

If you don't have it, here's how its added.......

The first-generation Air Force One connected directly to your brake cans (big cans on the back of your brakes). They just removed a brake line from one of the brake cans and put a "T" in its place. They look something like this....

Attaching directly to the "cans" was really an unsafe way to connect. If the airline broke going the AF1 connector, you could lose a substantial amount of air and lose your braking or lock up your brakes. It was also against DOT code.

A few years ago, AFI added a safety chamber that has to be plumbed into your DP airline and then a line is run to your rear bumper of the coach. If that line to the bumper breaks, the system will not deplete your air. The new unit looks like this. It comes as part of the AF1 braking system. It needs to be installed in your coach. It looks complicated, but it's pretty easy to install.
