Even brake altitude problem

Basically it is a programming limit which monitors atmospheric pressures.

Supposedly Roadmaster has reprogrammed this and put it into their newer units.

If I were going to buy another braking unit I would get a Blue OX unit that does not depend on air pressure. Electrical capacity may be an issue but a feed line from the MH would take care of that.

In Las Vegas now and the unit is testing fine. I will be calling Roadmaster to see if there is anything that can be adjusted on existing units to solve the altitude problem. Here is hoping I get a knowledgeable tech.

I am getting our 2003 GMC Yukon set up for towing and the dealer wants to install the even brake. After reading this thread I am now thinking maybe not. We had the US Gear system in our other toad and was very pleased with it. The dealer said he knows nothing about their system and the even brake works great. It is sure helpful to read the opinions of those who have experience with these things!

We tow a 2000 Saturn. I had the same problem. I pull the 30 amp fuse and I now plug the even brake into a protable battery jumper. I have not had any problems since.
