Brake Guard

I went to a product demonstration today for the Brake Guard HD 400. It is designed for hydraulic braking systems. Supposed to decrease braking distance. Does anyone have any experience with this product?

I have no experience with this product, but there has been a lot of snake oil
for brakes produced and sold to many RV'ers.

It has been my experience that OEM RV brakes if properly maintained and serviced will perform as designed and that's as good as it's going to get.That's not to say that your coach is ever going to stop like your Corvette or Camry. Stops more like a school bus and should be driven like one.

The whole transportation industry is struggling to make vehicles safer. Shorter stopping distances would be a valuable selling point.

If this thing did as claimed, and it looks to be relatively inexpensive, why wouldn't the manufactures simply add it to all automobiles along with all light and medium duty vehicles ?

I have read about this device for many years, yet I've only found one device that is being marketed.

To me, it sounds similar to the magnet device that claims to align the molecules in fuel so it burns better. Lots of testimonials but weak on real data.
