Maybe because you want to be legal? I'm not going to repeat what I said in post #7, this thread, but it still applies.

I was wondering why members of this group were so apprehensive about being overweight, not tons but pounds, but while talking to a long term RVer he said a number of years ago RVers had a wakeup call when the insurance industry picked up all the pieces of wrecks and weighed, over the limits they cancelled their coverage. Same would apply to brakes, only it would also be the police, out of pocket and in deep $..t with the courts, just to save a few bucks.

Bob sounds like your self install was a success and money saver. I wound up buying the SMI Stay-in-Play Duo Proportional Towed Car Breaking System with break-away activation. The unit was $1100 and they charged $129 to install it. Works great (it should considering what it cost). I also had them install the Blue Ox base plates and wiring system on my 2008 Taurus X. That works great too.
