Have the Vantage select with the remote control. The remote and base units would process through all functions, except remote did not indicate (light-up) when the brakes were on. I could feel the toad brake and adjust sensitivity in either proportional or full braking modes (great features) just fine.

Called Hopkins technical to discuss the problem. To my surprise, rather than send out a new remote,(the best that I expected),Hopkins replaced the whole system. No argument, no discussion, other than an explanation of the problem.

Unfortunately, the motor home is in a snow bank for a few more months, so won't be able to test the new system when totally connected. Remote and new components work on great on the toad.
