Momentum vs Proportional

Lots of info here on towing and braking systems, it's been a great resource as I do my research.

One final piece I'm stuck on...for those that have (or had) rigs with engine/exhaust brakes...did you specifically choose (or not choose) momentum braking system and why?

I like the notion of coming down a grade with engine brake on and getting some additional braking from the toad without having to activate my brakes...

I also like the notion of everyday driving and getting instant / Proportional braking

I'd like to hear the good and bad on this...

I'm tossing between the blue ox w/ invisibreak or NSA bar with ready break...

I know there's a bit of personal preference mixed in the answers on this too...

Thanks for any insight...

My personal preference is proportional. Simple reason is that if I'm heading downhill and just using exhaust brakes, I don't really need much help over what the trans is doing. It's more like keeping me stable vs actually slowing me down. However in city/stop go proportional is much smoother with the on/off motions.

I will be putting in an AirForce One system in the new coach/toad.

Neither. Air driven auxiliary brake. It’s the least cost and will not engage with the exhaust brake.

I have an M&G air brake system for the toad, second RV with it…..Works like a charm…Air force one competitor…M&G .better
