I have both Brake Buddy Vantage w/remote in coach that lets me adjust sensitivity and see when braking is activated. It is mounted below Pressure Pro unit. I was having a heck of a time getting the unit to connect w/BB in vehicle.

Just got off the phone w/BB and they said a known problem is the close frequency the two products run on. So can't use them together.

BB said try turning off rearview monitor too.

I will try but, not impressed w/this solution, which was turn everything else off.

What happens if you separate the two receivers in the front cab: BB on the left, and the Pressure Pro on the right? I doubt that with the two transmitters being 35+ feet away, they are the issue. Best guess is that the offending adjacent channel interference is coming from the BB remote that is constantly talking to its host.

I'm actually surprised that these two units are interfering with each other. These 900MHz devices are designed to live with each other nicely, up to dozens in the same area. I'm just thinking that the BB return transmitter (cab remote) is just hammering (overloading) the other receiver rather than stepping on its data.

If you are feeding power to both from the same local power point, that can also contribute to the problem. Try feeding, at least one unit directly from the chassis battery via a shielded cable with both ends of the shield and the frame of the unit well grounded to the RV's frame.
