Blue Ox, the leading manufacturer of towing products, has reintroduced the BrakeSafe, BRK4000, to its braking system line.
BrakeSafe is a supplemental braking system that allows for a smooth, proportional braking experience. It utilizes the motorhome’s air brakes to activate the brakes in the towed vehicle, reducing braking distances by an average of one-third.
The air cylinder is mounted discreetly close to the driver’s seat with a durable, black powder-coated bracket and a brake claw that easily attaches to a straight brake pedal arm.
It can be installed in less than an hour and, when not in use, can be removed in less than three minutes by disconnecting the brake claw from the pedal and the self-coiling hose from the towed vehicle.
BrakeSafe also requires no power draw from the towed vehicle’s battery; therefore there is no need to recharge it.
All units are equipped with ample DOT approved tubing for all applications, installation hardware and dust plugs to prevent road grime and moisture from potentially plugging the air disconnects.
