Exhaust Brake improve towing safety for you diesel! Print E-mail

Diesel Exhaust Brake

exhaustbrake_large.jpg

Over-the-road diesels were probably the first to ever be faced with the braking problems you are now encountering in our downhill terror scenario. Andexhaustbrakedownhill_large.jpg while these drivers have primarily relied on internal engine brakes, they are now adding quiet exhaust brakes since engine brakes have become outlawed in many mountainous regions due to their extreme noise problems. And which brand are these Over-the-Road drivers stepping up to? D-Celerator by U.S. Gear,...made in the U.S.A., #1 requested exhaust brake in the RV market. So ask yourself this, "Why would you choose anything less"?

State-of-the-Art D-Celerator models utilize the most advanced technology in the industry. They are in fact the only exhaust brakes on the market with exclusive computer-controlled electronics. They come with an electronic control module and remote control panel to trigger the exhaust brake on and off. The remote control module has an on-off switch and a status light. As soon as you see the need for downhill brake assistance, simply push the button on the remote...push it again when it's time to turn it off. With the ignition on and the ECM (Electronic Control Module) on, the red light tells you the brake is activated. If the down grade requires accelerating in some sections, you may choose to leave the brake on and by pushing the accelerator pedal, it will turn off temporarily. Just push the pedal and it's off...lift your foot and it's back on. When you get to the bottom, push the red button on the remote and make sure the red light is off.

The D-Celerator units utilize a butterflie to create immediate exhaust pressure for assisting the vehicle's regular brakes. In fact, knowing that butterfly-type exhaust brakes are plagued with binding caused by soot build-up, U.S. Gear built into their software program an open-close, open-close cycle every time the engine is started to minimize soot build-up. This, along with their in-line mounting and use of stainless steel componentry allows U.S. Gear to offer the best warranty in the industry.

Don't Leave Home without it!

  • Your diesel's providing both the terrific power and great fuel mileage for which you bought the truck
  • Suddenly, you come upon the steepest downhill grade you've ever encountered
  • Your heavy load is pushing you faster and faster down that mountain, and you're all but standing on the brakes just to slow down
  • Not only is there a sheer drop-off along the shoulder of the road, but you can see that traffic is coming to a stop at the bottom of the grade
  • You're beginning to smell something burning, and realize that your brakes are very close to dangerously overheating...how on earth are you going to get this rig stopped without a disastrous outcome?
  • This is a position that will strike terror into the hearts of even the most seasoned drivers.

Exhaust Brake Who needs it?

You do, if you're pulling heavy loads or large RV trailers with a diesel, which is becoming more popular every year. With current slide-out fifth wheel trailers approaching 18,000 to 20,000 lbs, the vehicles used for towing just do not have adequate brakes. The towing load is twice the gross weight of the truck that's pulling it.

And if that truck happens to be a diesel, it just makes a lot of sense to add some safety to the program.

Added Help

The D-Celerator does just that. Working in conjunction with the vehicle's braking system, the D-Celerator truly can relieves much of the tension associated with down hill towing. If horses had knuckles...they'd be white. It's there when you need it, and very easy to operate.

Application

There's a De-Celerator available for all popular diesel tow vehicles: Dodge, Ford, Chevy and GMC - trucks, vans, and class "C" motor homes. The following table presents a list of our quality De-Celerator kits.

NOTES:

         
 

The D-Celerator is installed ahead of the vehicle muffler. You must measure the exhaust system
diameter in the area where the D-Celerator is to be installed.

             
 

The D-Celerator is only applicable with vehicles using a single exhaust system.

 
             
 

Allison AT542/AT545 transmissions without torque converter lockup are not compatible with engine braking.
