We had the M & G braking system installed on our Honda CR-V. This system attaches the air brakes from the coach to the Honda. So, when I apply the brakes on the coach, the Honda brakes will apply at the same pressure.
We never have to pump our brakes with this system. A pump/actuator was attached to the master cylinder of the Honda. Nothing goes in the driver's compartment. Just connect the air hose from the coach to the front of the Honda and the other Blue Ox connections and we're ready to go.
From the other descriptions of flat spots on tires, etc., I'm glad we went with the M & G, never a lock-up problem.
I think you made a better choice than the Brake Buddy (my choice)
But if my mistakes do not kill me and just cost me money - I can live with that
does anyone know why it's so important to go thru the gears in such a specific order?...I'm not a transmission guy....Thanks
I can't remember the source, but I read where going from reverse to neutral does not fully release all of the mechanisms required for reverse operation. It's fine for sitting still with the tranny in neutral, BUT NOT FOR TOWING. Follow honda's sequence and you'll be fine.
Regarding pumping brakes to bleed vacuum, it depends upon what toad braking system you have installed.
