Getting ready to set up TOAD with Invisbrake...any recent good reviews from anyone?

I am getting real close to having my Jeep set up for Toad. I am going with a Blu Ox towbar, and was thinking about the Roadmaster Invisbrake, but then saw this thread. Anyone here here good or bad experience with them?

Roadmaster Invisibrake problems - iRV2 Forums


I was hoping for some recent input on those of you that are using the system ?
Cheers, Tom

I have had my Invisibrake for about a year and 5500 miles. No problems. There is no hassle hooking up - just plug and play. I am a very satisfied customer.

I got mine last week. The only problem I had is the adjustable pedals in my toad wound up pulling the invisibrake cable so tight that it locked up the brakes (this happened when unhooking, so no toad damage). Moving the pedals forward released the brakes and I have noted never to move the pedals again.

Since then, no problem, it works great!

Wouldn't use anything but an M&G Brake unit. No cables to worry about.

We've been using the Invisibrake for about 8 months. Some initial issues with the install at Camping World. They couldn't figure out what they did wrong. I had it rewired at another shop and it's been great ever since. We're happy with the system.

Honwing, I am thinking about putting an Invisibrake on my 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid. Did you do the installation yourself or have someone install it? I am planning on doing it myself. I would appreciate any information on installation or operating problems you have had with this on your Hybrid.

Sorry. I took the car in to Roadmaster in Vancouver, Wa. 20 miles from home. Had a special and thought $200 was fair for the install. Also had them install the brackets. Going to Grand Coulée Dam on Wednesday over White Pass. Invisibrake works great. Just push start button, place transmission in neutral, release electric parking brake push start/stop button .. That's it. Also love the fusion Hybrid. 44.6 mpg coming back from Seattle Sunday.

I installed the Invisibrake on my 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid and did the installation myself. If you are a bit handy with basic hand tools, carefully read the instructions, and take your time ... It's a pretty straightforward task. I mounted the controller in the trunk and the actuator behind the B-pillar so it is truly "invisible." I used a Brake Buddy in my previous car and although it worked fine I really like the simplicity of the Invisibrake once it is installed. I have used it towing now for over 16,000 miles - through rain and even a little snow with no significant issues.
