Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - BrakeMaster BrakeAway Kit - RM-8600 Review


Hello, everybody. This is Jeff for etrailer.com. Today, we'd take a look at this Roadmaster BrakeAway kit, for the Brakemaster Supplemental Braking Systems. Now, this will add a little extra security to your towing experience. With the installation of this BrakeAway kit to your tow vehicle. This BrakeAway kit worked with the Roadmaster's Brakemaster System.

To ensure that your tow vehicle comes to a controlled stop should it ever separate from your motorhome. Basically, uses the air pressure in this air cylinder, to apply the brakes during a breakaway. Now, this kit will include everything I laid out here on the table. Comes with this air reservoir, the air line tubing. The rubber mounting clamps, to hold this cylinder in place.

The BrakeAway switch itself. The BrakeAway cable, and all the installation hardware you need to install it, with a nice set of instructions. How does this install in your tow vehicle The BrakeAway switch right here, is what is installed to the front of the tow vehicle. With this BrakeAway cable, being attached to the pin right here. And then, the other end goes to the motor home.

The air cylinder is mounted in the engine apartment, and supplies air to the tow vehicle's brake pedal for application of brakes. So basically, what happens if your tow vehicle would come detached from your motorhome, the cable, that was connected to your motorhome into this pin, it will pull that pin out of the switch, which will then activate the air pressure in this cylinder. To apply the brakes to the brake pedal in your tow vehicle. Now, this BrakeAway kit does come standard in the Roadmaster BrakeMaster kits Part # RM - 9060 and Part # RM - 9160. Both of those kits we do sell separately on our website.

This parts are made in the USA, but that should do it for the review on the Roadmaster BrakeAway kit, for the BrakeMaster Supplemental Braking Systems..
