Roadmaster Active Suspension

Have scoured the site looking for comments on Roadmaster Active Suspension, and apart from some owners who list the device in their signature line, there don't seem to be too many references.

Am I one of the few who decided to install the system? When I bought my 2008 GMC Sierra 2WD 1500 WT 4.8L V8, one of the first things I found was a huge amount of axle hop in wet or slippery conditions. I searched the 'Net looking for solutions, and came across the Roadmaster information, and decided to try it. I don't have any connection to, or shares in, that company but I have to say that in my experience, everything they claim about that product seems to be quite true.

Driving the truck unladen, it has eliminated axle hop and stabilised heavy emergency braking, and doesn't perceptibly change the ride of the vehicle. When towing 19 foot TT's (the extent of my towing experience, at 5,500lbs) equipped with a standard equaliser rig, I have NEVER had trailer sway or control issues under any circumstances encountered so far in 5 seasons of towing.

Considering I am inexperienced compared to many, and just load up my trailer and truck with whatever it needs for a trip without any special consideration to weight distribution, there has to be something that's contributed to my safety!

Has anyone else out there had experience with the Roadmaster product?
