I guess I have to eat crow on this one! 95% of my complaints about the brakes are my own fault. My last coach was a 2002 34fdds towing a 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager with no toad braking system. The combined weight was less that the GVW on the coach and the braking was great. My new 2007 40fdts SE and 2007 Honda Odyssey combo is a lot heavier, in fact over the coaches GVW. I had bought a toad brake system at the factory while there but had not installed it until on my trip up the coast to the Newport pre-rally. After installing the system I find that the brakes are great, other than pressure required to hold it at a stop while in gear. This may be a problem with a high idle which I will look into. I had driven the coach while at the factory without the tow car and had still experienced high pedal pressure, but that seems to be better now, I am not sure if they just needed some miles to wear in? I did drive a new 2008 36fdts today that weighs almost as much as my coach and it's braking felt just fine. If I have any further findings on this issue I will post them at that time.
