SMI Air Force One offers the latest in supplemental braking technology. Air Force One uses the coach's air to create vacuum for the towed vehicle’s power-brake feature, and also uses the same air supply to proportionately apply the brakes in the towed vehicle. Since it uses the coach’s air supply, Air Force One does not need an electric pump. In fact, the Air Force One operating unit has no moving parts at all. The Air Force One operating unit is very small and fits under the hood of your towed vehicle (see one). The brake actuator mounts on the brake arm just like the Stay-IN-Play cylinder.
In addition, Air Force One is the only air brake that offers and includes coach protection for the air supply in event of a separation. With “Total Coach Protection,” the coach’s air supply is sealed off to allow the coach to stop normally. At the same time the coach is protected, the breakaway system on the car activates the towed-vehicle’s brakes.
Air Force One also includes a coach notification light. This light is activated directly by the towed’s brake-light switch. Any time the brakes are applied in the towed vehicle, the light is on.
Air Force One is a revolutionary product that will apply truly proportionate brake effort in your towed vehicle. The simple install combined with vacuum-assisted power brakes and truly proportionate braking makes the Air Force One system second to none for a motor home with air brakes.
Combine the power brakes of the car being active with all the other great features, including no set up for towing, and you too will agree with RV’ers all over the country; Air Force One is the greatest new innovation for this industry.
Things that are different are not the same. Air Force One is truly better.
