I've had 2 Even Brake 9700's malfunction since Sept. 2010. The factory refurbished the first one for the $199 send in fee. The second one's problem happened within the one year coverage period but was not reported until 2 month later. "no longer covered by the warranty"
The system seems to "recycle" on its own. The tech at the factory said it was caused by an air leak. Shouldn't a system (two of them) function for more than one year each?
BTW I traveled approx. 8,000 miles with the system pretending to be in the working position. In other words sitting on the floor, attached to the pedal, but not plugged in. We traveled throughout Alaska and the Rockies and noticed no change in towing or braking. But no more dead car batteries due to constant recycling.
Recommendations on my next system (that will work using the same set-up). I don't won't to engage in a major refit to accommodate a new system.

I second the vote for Ready Brake. Our works great and we saved a Lott of money.
I have the wireless brake monitor which is also great, the system comes with wire for a wired monitor if you don't want to spend the extra money.
