That looks like the older model, for which some parts are not available. I had one, and the air system quit working. I sent it back for repair, they couldn't fix it but offered to sell me the newer model for less than half price, which I thought was a good deal.

My Brake Buddy is at least 10 years old I bought used. Still works. The biggest problem so far is getting the sending/receiving signal units to work. Had to mount the receiver up high in our 41' MH, and the sender outside of car windshield.
Full Timers.
