M&G Braking Systems are the most effective braking control system on the aftermarket today.
With each brake model, we will install an air cylinder in your tow vehicle plus a "quick-connect" air pressure line between your RV and four-down tow vehicle. When you press the brakes in your RV, the brakes in your tow vehicle will be simultaneously and automatically applied through the pneumatic line, giving you the additionally needed braking control and braking force for safe stopping action.
For each model braking control system described here, our patented air cylinder will be mounted in the towed vehicle between the master brake cylinder and vacuum booster. An air pressure line will be connected to the RV's air brake system and extended to this special air cylinder in the towed vehicle, with a quick disconnect arrangement between the two vehicles.
Our system can solve your motor coach/towed vehicle braking problems! This added margin of safety can help protect your life, the well-being of your passengers and the huge investment you have in your RV and towed vehicles.
M&G CAR BRAKING SYSTEM MODELS
We have four models to match the type of braking control in your RV:
Original M&G Car Braking Systems for coaches with AIR BRAKES
For this type braking system, an air cylinder is mounted between the master cylinder and vacuum booster on the towed vehicle. An air pressure line is connected to the motor coach's air brake system and extended to the air cylinder on the towed vehicle, with a quick disconnect.
This added margin of safety can help protect your life, the well-being of your passengers and the tremendous investment you have in your recreational vehicles.
When the towed vehicle is disconnected and being driven independently, the M&G Car Braking System air cylinder simply acts as a pushrod.
M&G 2.0 Car Braking System
For this type of braking system, air cylinder and bracket are mounted under the hood or under towed vehicle. A conduit and cable are routed to floor behind brake pedal and attached to brake pedal arm. An air line is attached to RV with quick disconnect.
When towed vehicle is driven braking system is out of the way. Nothing to connect or disconnect to brake pedal. Always in place, ready to operate. Cable will flex when brake pedal is applied during normal operation.
M&G Car Braking System for coaches with HYDRAULIC BRAKES
For motor coaches with this type braking system, an air cylinder is mounted between the master cylinder and vacuum booster on the towed vehicle. A 12-volt air compressor, an air accumulator tank and a proportioning valve are mounted in the coach. These units are in the power pack, and are mounted externally on the frame of the coach. One air line connects the motor coach and the towed vehicle using a quick disconnect.
As in the previous system described, when the towed vehicle is being driven independently, the M&G Car Braking System air cylinder performs as a pushrod.
For a motor coach with AIR OVER HYDRAULIC BRAKES the compressor is not needed.
This coach will utilize its own air pressure to operate the M&G brake system. A proportioning valve will be supplied to control the air pressure sent to the braking system by sensing hydraulic pressure.
AFFECT ON TOWED VEHICLE WHILE BEING DRIVEN INDEPENDENTLY: The installation of our equipment will not affect the performance of your towed vehicle while it is being driven independently (the patented air cylinder functions as a pushrod and does not adversely affect the braking system on the towed vehicle).
- COILED AIR LINE OPTION: This option is for substitution of the coiled air pressure line for the standard straight air line. This is not required but is preferred by some to reduce the risk of the air line dragging on the pavement while the RV is in motion. The coiled aspect of the line allows for tighter vehicle turning without harming the air line. It is available for use with all three of our air operated braking systems.
- TOWED VEHICLE "BREAKAWAY KIT" OPTION: We also sell and install an optional kit designed to provide automatic braking action in your towed vehicle should your towed vehicle unexpectedly detach from your RV while traveling. We highly recommend this additional safety product to lessen the possible damage to your towed vehicle and to reduce harm to those near the detached vehicle. This kit works only with our braking system. It works with all four of our braking systems. Click Here For Kit Details.
- ALERT LED KIT OPTION: We sell and install an optional kit designed to provide automatic alert in your vehicle should your towed vehicle detach from your RV or if your system is not connected properly. This kit works only with our braking system. Click Here For Kit Details.
How Can I Get This Installed?
FACTORY INSTALLATIONS: Have the man that designs the M&G Brake System install your brake system for you. Our professional service techs will be glad to help you. We also have overnight accommodations with one 50 amp hookup for your convenience.We also install Base Plates, Tow Bars, and wire towed vehicles for lights. Contact us for an Appointment.
DEALER INSTALLATIONS: If our factory is not convenient for you, please see our list of dealers who are experienced in designing and installing our braking control systems. An order lead time is required at most dealers for them to specify and receive the equipment from our factory. Most of them are not "stocking" dealers. You can also order from the factory and choose your dealer from our list, and we will ship the equipment to them to meet you there for installation.
SELF INSTALLATIONS: In rare cases, very qualified mechanics can successfully install the system on some vehicles. We do not recommend this approach as it has often proven to be trouble-prone. The prices shown on this web site do not include installation at the factory or a dealer.
What Type of Vehicles will it Work With?
TYPES OF TOWING VEHICLES: You can have our system installed on most any towing vehicle, most typically an RV, motor coach, or truck.
TYPES OF TOWED VEHICLES: You can have our system installed on most any typical "toad" vehicle that has hydraulically operated brakes four down wheels. This includes, cars, vans, and trucks. See our vehicle compatibility list.
How Can I Disconnect It?
CONNECT-DISCONNECT ARRANGEMENT: Our system uses a "quick-connect-disconnect" method for the air pressure line that runs between the RV and towed vehicle. The connectors are similar to those used on standard air compressor lines. This allows you to very easily hook up and un-hook. This method is fast and dependable. There are no electrical wires to connect/disconnect. If you use our Breakaway Kit (which we highly recommend) there will be a small mechanical cable to connect/disconnect, which is very easy to do.
