Smile Invisible brake from RoadMaster

Hello,
I am about to buy an InvisiBrake brake system (RoadMaster model 8700) to install it on my VW Beetle. those who know this, according to your experience, can they tell me if it's a good idea? we do not talk about it in the RV Tech Library.
I am a new membre. Thanks for the answer.

Good product but I would think a RVi3 Brake would be easier to use/install.

Love my invisibrake. Under my driver seat and I never have to mess with it. Easy peasy. Last thing I wanted to do was lug around and store a brake assist device when not in use. No set up and no tear down. Did the install myself.

I had a bad compressor that went out at the end of my first major trip (supplier sent them a bad batch) and Roadmaster replaced it free of charge no hassle (including their labor) and installed a free wireless brake pedal sensor upgrade for my troubles. Now that's customer service.

Best,
-Mark

Installed one in my Wrangler...very straight forward install. Agree with Mark, under the seat and out of my mind. No issues for a year and a half.

Road Master is a good system. But do your self a favor and look at the Stay & Play System. Not easy peasy to install but a very good system. I have it on my Jeep JKSU 2017, heavy bugger.

Question Patriot II (Blue ox) or InvisiBrake (Roadmaster) ?

Thank you for all these comments, especially to ę*2 Stroker*Ľ who made me discover the debate that took place in 2014-2015 about the Invisibrake Roadmaster Invisibrake problems

After this reading, I plan to buy the Patriot II braking system from Blue Ox. Those who have experience with Patriot II can they tell me if it is a good product to install on my VW Beetle 2007 ? The mechanic (guy) at my home usually installs Patriot II.

Iím a little late to the IRV2 world but before everyone sets their hair on fire over the Invisibrake Problems thread, itís helpful to note that those series of posts are over five years old. I just installed the Invisibrake in my Rubicon and it works when itís supposed to and doesnít come on when itís not required. But if you want to rely on five year old information, I also heard that the hand crank on the Model A will break your wrist if you arenít careful.

Check out M&G brake system. We have their air brake system on our toad which we really like. They also have a braking system for non air brake coaches. Small company but quality products.
