2015 GMC Terrain & Roadmaster Brakemaster ?'s

Transitioning from a 2005 Jeep Liberty tow to a 2015 GMC Terrain SLT2 tow (4 cyl).

Installing the Roadmaster Brakemaster 9160 Air/Air supplemental system removed from the Jeep. Trying to locate someone who has this sytem installed to find out where they located the air reservoir for the DOT Breakaway and flow through for the brake pedal actuator.

I have spoken to Roadmaster directly as well as Etrailer and nobody can indicate a location for the reservoir. Underhood is much preferred as it was with the Jeep but having an issue trying to find space.

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

I have a 2015 GMC Terrain Denali with the 6 cyl engine. I've heard (here) that sometimes the 4 cyl. models shimmy due to the electric power steering unit. Try doing a search and maybe you'll find the info.

I installed the reservoir on the inside of the front left wheel well plastic liner. I did this when I had the whole front end removed to install the base plate. I drilled a couple of holes in the plastic and used 1/4 x 20 bolts. I fabricated a bracket for the air piston that attaches to the brake pedal that looks exactly like the one offered from Roadmaster and then found a convenient location for the quick release air fitting on the floor next to the drivers seat. Drilled a hole in the floor board, inserted a grommet and ran the plastic line through the grommet to the fitting.

Thanks, I'll take a look on that side for a suitable location. I've been keeping on top of the wobble issue and have read that entire post a few times in that I have the 4 cyl.

Thanks again for the input and hopefully I can get it mounted there where you did.

Did you run the air line under the car and curved up through the floorboard or use a right angle fitting? Do you have any photos of your installation?

I just drilled a hole then curved the 1/4" hose and hooked up the quick release
I did surrounded the plastic air hose with a piece of rubber hose to protect it

Sorry, no photo's
