BrakeMaster is Roadmaster's 'direct' proportional braking system. It connects directly to the motorhome’s air or hydraulic brake system for rock-solid, reliable braking — brake line pressure in the motorhome controls the brakes in the towed vehicle. Because it connects directly to what powers your motorhome’s brakes, BrakeMaster is a truly proportional, truly synchronized braking system — however you brake the motorhome, BrakeMaster automatically applies the same pressure. Every time.
Connects and disconnects from the towed vehicle in under a minute, without any tools, adjustments or settings — attach the brake pedal clamp, secure to the floor or the seat adaptor, quick-connect the air hose and you’re ready to tow.
Weighs just 3.75 pounds and measures 17 inches in length — stores almost anywhere.
Works in virtually any motorhome.
Works in virtually any towed vehicle with power brakes.
Easily disconnects from the brake pedal — from towed car to road car in seconds!
Includes a break away emergency braking system.
Meets U.S. and Canadian braking requirements .
Shorten your stopping distance.
BrakeMaster applies proportional braking pressure on all four wheels of your towed vehicle. Reduces stopping distance and wear on motorhome brakes. Increase control and safety. Helps prevent overheating on steep downgrades. Air cylinder attaches to towed vehicle's brake pedal. Works with ABS. Includes break away kit.
Will your motorhome and towed vehicle stop safely in an emergency?
The ability to stop quickly is essential for the safe operation of your motorhome and tow vehicle. Workhorse will void your chassis warranty if you tow more than 1,000 pounds without supplemental brakes; Ford stipulates 1,500 pounds. Check with your motor home manufacturer for their towing recommendations.
Are supplemental brakes required in your state or province?
According to the American Automobile Association, most states, plus many Canadian provinces, now require supplemental brakes if the towed weight exceeds 3,000 pounds. If you have questions regarding state, province or local laws, please consult with the appropriate government agency.

The first thing I added to my coach! Hooks up quickly and provides proportional braking while traveling. Red light in cockpit go...es on when I use the coach brakes so I know that the toad brake is working. I have used it for over a year with two different tow vehicles. If you care about safety look at this product.
I have had this supplemental breaking system for about two years. My
reason for purchase was that I wanted to be compliant with ...legal
requirements, and I wanted something which would store easily.
Wow! Was I pleasantly surprised to find that it was VERY effective at
slowing down and stopping our 40 ft. diesel pusher with a 4500
pound towed car (Jeep Grand Cherokee), especially on downhill
breaking. Setting up or breaking down is simple and takes a couple
of minutes. My wife can do it with ease. I recommend this product
Had the Brake Buddy Even Brake before and it broke 3 times called Road Master after sending it in to repaired again. Customer serv...ice said they would replace my system with the Brake Master 9160 for free and would include the floor plate for my tow car. I was shocked a company with great customer service, I received it in two days works like a dream and takes seriously less then two minutes to set up and take out. The best system out there period.
A number of vehicles require seat adapter brackets to install the Brakemaster. These brackets are make/model specific, please refer to Roadmaster's Braking System Guide and Seat Adapter Guide. Roadmaster also tries to note in their support material if there are additional components required to ease installation of a braking system or brake light wiring in a vehicle.

The air coupler from my hose to the car has been damaged. Can you help me get a new coupler. Have tried everywhere but just the large couplers available.
Whether or not additional electrical components are needed will depend on the design of the brake & turn signal system of the vehicle being towed. This information is printed in the Owner & Install manuals for the Brakemaster. All manuals for Roadmaster products can be downloaded here. A vehicle-specific information guide is available here as well.
