SMI Air Force Install

After reviewing the various braking systems I chose to install the SMI Air Force One. I was not willing to try the install myself, so I had Master Tech in Elkhart do the work. I was picking my Aspire up from Entegra that day after some minor work and asked SMI who to use in the area. They suggested Master Tech. Tim was great and the install was super smooth. Bottom line is the SMI system is great and the guys at Master Tech were also great. I'm a happy customer that now has peace of mind with a reliable braking system. You can truly feel the difference compared to no system or my older Brake Buddy.

Congratulations on the AF1. I'm sure you'll love it. We've had the same one for over 6 years and had it on 2 coaches. I'd never have another brand or type. The only trouble we've had was a 'C' clip coming loose inside the toad cylinder and a broken cable at the clip that holds it to the firewall. SMI had a tech meet me on the road in Tucson when he was on the way to Quartzsite and replaced the cylinder in less than 10 minutes. When the sharp edge on the titanium firewall clip cut the cable after about 100,000 tow miles, I sent the cylinder to SMI and they replaced the cable in a week for less than $35. That included shipping. I rounded the edge of the clip with a file so I expect to see another 200,000 miles on the system. This is one setup that works as advertized and has a company that knows what customer service is all about.
