Anybody use an RVi2 aux braking system?

This looks like a great little portable aux brake, better than brakebuddy. Anybody have any first hand knowledge on it?

I have an RVi2. Great little unit. Works flawlessly. Outstanding customer support and service. Broke antennae connector. Called company, got an owner. He emailed me a overnight shipping label. Had the unit back within a week.

Many Many Many previous posts on this unit. We have one and have no regrets and no intention of changing. I'd buy it again if I had a need. It has worked great for us. Good luck with your decision.

+4 on the RVi. I've had an original RVi for a couple of years. The newer RVi2 includes TPMS functions. My RVi has worked great, great people & customer service, no problems in use, easy in easy out. Would buy one again, without question.

Love this system! Not only does it give me tire pressure for the toad, it give me visual indication of the braking activity on the toad.

Have one, very happy with the unit. I did have a problem, called the factory, they sent a replacement over night to the campground I was staying in.

rvi brake

I have the first model out, RVI .Had some trouble with the short antenna. I called the co. and they sent out a long range at no charge.It works great,except it will loose communication with the up front monitor once in a while going through a toll booth or other air wave interuption. It always came back on quickly, so no problem. They have the newer model out now RVI2 with some upgrades. For customer who have the old model, they will trade for your old and send a new one (RVI2) for $100, which gives you another 3 year warranty.I broke the back on my old monitor , so instead of trying to replace it , I went for the new one.The even sent me a ups shipping label to send in my old unit. They are great people that will bend over backwards to help you.I would buy one again if needed.
