Wireless brake notification system

We have a Stay-In-Play Duo supplemental brake system for our CRV toad. The system has a small hardwired LED brake notification light that is attached to the tow bar that I can see in our rear view camera, to tell us if the toad braking system is activating properly. Does anyone know of a wireless sending/receiving unit that could send a signal to a notification light in the coach? This would be easier to see than the notification light in the rear camera. I know I could run a hardwire from the toad to a LED in the coach, but I am looking for a simple and inexpensive wireless unit that could do the same thing.

The Brake Buddy has a wireless monitor device - maybe you could get one of those from them and install on your rig.

I know you want wireless , but I had a hard wire light put on mt SMI. No big deal ( at least not for me ) . I had a tech do it .It cost me one hour labor ( $75 ) and maybe $15 in parts. It's great as I couldn't see the other one on sunny days.

I have the older Stay-In-Play, it came with a remote transmitter that attaches to the toad's brake switch and receiver that sits in the coach, connects to the lighter socket. I'm not sure they sell them any more, but you could contact SMI and ask them.

It works fairly well, it does have the occasional false alarm where the LED lights for less than a second, Real braking causes the LED to light for more then a second. If I ever noticed the LED on for more than a few seconds after releasing the brakes I would know something is wrong, of course this has never happened!

Just don't sweat it Jim, the thing works, honest it does.

For initial adjusting, best thing is for someone (talking to you oon a cel phone, and able to movew the adjustment) to ride in the toad.

After that, it just works.

I*'ve never really been able to see the light on mine... the light sensot on the camera is too fast, if I', looking at it, I can see the whole picture get darker, but I rarely pay attention.

It does work.

After it has been properly adjusted, it needs no monitoring.
