I use the Patriot. It just plugs into your 12v outlet and works perfectly. The remote in the RV shows me what is going on and allows me to adjust it, but is not necessary for operation. I can put it in and be have it ready in about a minute. It takes about the same amount of time to pull it out. Running the supplied break away switch to the front is the "hardest" part of the install.

I taped my break away switch lead to the Mopar lighting harness and installed them both at the same time.

I suggest you create a signature that lists your RV. That will help members in responding to your questions.

In looking at your profile I see you do own a DP so one of the air activated systems would be an option. The "box on the floor" systems will work, we had one for a number of years, (and yes, it's portable) but I didn't like having to deal with it, or find a place to store it when not in use.

We now use the Air Force one air activated brake system. Like similar systems, once it is installed it is a quick 30 seconds to connect the small line from the motorhome to the toad.

3 Recommendations:

IF Class A has Air Brakes: M&G (Totaly invisible to driver) If they have a slave that fits (And in most cases they DO fit jeeps)

IF you tow often and do not park the motor home for like six months in the great salted north: Ready Brake, IF you have yet to get a tow bar get the Ready Brute WITH ready Brake (Save money)

Otherwise

US-Gear Unified Brake Decelerator.

I have a 2012 Jeep Wrangler and use the Blue Ox Auto Stop (Surge Type) System, it works great so far. Also it keeps it a simple operation.
