Brake Buddy alternative

If you are looking for an supplemental braking system, Tow Brake LLC is back in business. I have an old one and believe it is a viable alternative to the "box" of a Brake Buddy or similar unit. It takes a little wiring on the coach and toqad, but once in place is easy to use and, in my experience, works very well. Just another choice.

I like the US Gear Unified Brake Decelerator on Gas rigs (Rigs without air pressure)

It does have to be installed, on both vehicles, but once installed there is no box, in fact all there is is a plug and jack (electrical hook up) up next to the hook up for the lights, IN fact no reason at all you could not combine them on a 7-pin round plug.

Makes it much, much, much, harder to say: "Oh, it is too much trouble for this short trip" followed by "Oh !!!!!! I wish I'd hooked it up"

Nothing adds excitement like something that is none of your business.
