Brake Pro quit working

I bought a used Roadmaster Brake Pro a few years ago and had good reliability until the las time I took it our. It just quit working and trouble shooting ie. wiring and fuse etc. didn't turn up andy problems so I suspect something in a brain board. Is there some place that will repair the suspected control board or would I have to ship the entire unit/ We are on a limited budget and my wife has escalating healt costs because of MS, but she stills like to get out with me, and towing a Wrangler is a bonus to our trips.

I also have a Roadmaster Brake Pro. New in 2006. It got to where it would either apply the brakes and not release or not apply the brakes at all.

I could take it out and shake/rotate it, re-install it and all would be fine. I called Roadmaster and described the problem. I was told the deceleration sensor was probably bad on the ckt board. OK, can I buy a board. Nope, that model is no longer serviced. Do you make the boards? NO. Can you give me the name of the company that makes the boards? NO. What can I do? We will sell you a new one for 50% off, if you ship the old one back to us. Nope, this was in 2010, so a unit that is 4 years old, no longer serviced, and they want to sell me a new one for more money than I can buy a new one off EBay.

Because of this, I no longer recommend Roadmaster products.
