Flex and RVI brake

We tried to setup the brake correctly on the floor, however it doesn't seem to fit. We had to turn it so the base was side ways and the seat was pulled all the way forward- which held the unit in place. We are unable to read the lights. I know this is incorrect and would like to see (pics) of how it properly fits.

I could not get the tpms to register on the pad inside the coach. Back to rereading the manual.

I have a Brake Buddy in Jeep. Made a 2" high platform with 4 legs, covered in carpet. Fixed that alignment problem between the brake peddle and seat. Works great!

Does the Flex have a floor pan indentation or is the floor completely flat? The RVi2 should fit in the foot pan but if you don't have one, then it sits flat on the floor. You do not need to move the seat. RVi will supply you with a backstop that attaches to the seat frame. Call them for help. They can also help you with the tire monitors as well.

Custom backstop for my RVI Brake in 2004 Tacoma

RVIBrake built a custom backstop for my 2004 Tacoma. They were very responsive.

You may need to send them a picture of your installation.

You definitely need to read the manual when installing the TPMS. All the steps must be followed in order.

When I was looking for a braking system for my 2015 Flex I was told the RVIBrake would not work with the Flex floor pan and would need a special bracket installed to act as a stop to push against. I decided to go with an SMI Stay N Play Duo system instead.

Did the same with SMI, don't want to be crawling around hooking up brake pedals anyway.

It takes me less than 30 seconds to connect my RVIbrake to the brake pedal and plug the wires in. I simply kneel down alongside the drivers open door and it's very quick to do.

RVI Brake2

I agree, it take me 30 seconds to 1 minute to set up my RVIBrake2.
It is very easy to adjust. You just hit the Green Auto-position button 3 times.
