RE: SMI Air Force One install

Good Morning everyone. following up with an update. I spent Saturday morning installing the Air Force One on the coach. Actually I surprised how easy it was. First got the coack up on blocks, dumped the air bags, set the jacks and she was ready. I was able to install the air tank just in front of the brake assembly, this made for easy installation of air lines (nice and close) then it was all about cutting the supply and metered air lines. I was a bit nervous at first, obviously cutting the air lines but once cut I was able to connect all lines and then route the final air line through the existing wiring harness to the back of the coach. I was able to get a great location just rear of the trailer hitch pin on a solid surface. Friday morning I had sent a photo to Demco to very the supply and metered air lines on my coach. Thanks Demco, fast reply and I was happy they were there if I needed them. Next week is the Truck side install and I believe this will be a bit more difficult!

RE: SMI Air Force One install

WOW, that stirred up a whole slew of conversation. I Just want to make sure that safety s first. I'm not much worried about the installation process other than the cutting of the brake line. I guess the real question I should have asked is, is the emergency brake anyway connected to this supply line or metered line that I will be cutting? I appreciate everyone's comments and I look forward to more replies. Thanks, Randy

SMI Air Force One install

Good Morning al. Just purchased the air force one proportional braking system. My question is do I need to dump the bags and jacks prior to cutting my supply and metered lines on the coach? I have a 2011 Winn Journey on a Freightliner chassis. the coach is too low to leave on the ground without the jacks. I am a big guy so either jacks up or i pull it up on blocks? need some advice here. I understand i need to pump brakes 3 or 4 times to release the air in system but not sure if this effects jacks? I appreciate some direction here if anyone has some. My fear for some reason is being under the coach, cutting the lines and the coach starts rolling. 2011 Journey 40U 2020 Chevy Trail Boss Randy

RE: Existing air line for RV braking system

I will take a look and see if I can figure out what size fitting it requires and I will try and locate it on Amazon. Thanks, Randy

RE: Existing air line for RV braking system

That's great advice. I appreciate that. I will work on getting the air fitting along with the gauge. Keep you posted. Lets assume it is connected to aux brake, back in the past (2011, 2012)I was told it might just be an connection to a brake line without any additional systems on it (smi, Roadmaster etc.?) can this be true? Because I am having a heck of a time locating any systems down there? Thanks again for your great advice! Randy 2011 Winnebago Journey 40U 2016 Jeep

RE: Existing air line for RV braking system

well I sure appreciate all of your help and responses. Again, I can see the air line but since I am in the market for a new system I was thinking about going with SMI Air Force 1. I hope this will make that install that much easier. I am towing a 2020 Chevy Trail Boss and I want to make sure I have done everything I can to protect my Investment!

Existing air line for RV braking system

Any help on locating an existing RV brake on my coach? I have an air line connection at the rear of my coach but unable to figure out the manufacturer and location of this system. I know it here just cant find it. 2011 Class A Journey 40U Randy
