Help with Brakebuddy

Hi all .... I have a neighbor who has what is evidently a very old Brakebuddy made/sold by Master Concepts Inc. in Sedalia, CO. It's a square steel box with the pedal arm of course and any info I find on the 'net shows contoured plastic boxes. Another neighbor wants to buy it and I'm certain I'll be responsible for hooking it up and verifying it's operation. There are installation instructions on the side of the box.

Anyone got an idea as to what a fair price might be for this?

I do not know about "fair", but I have owned one of the pictured units for about 11 years.

I would pay $300 for that unit in good working condition with the dash signal equipment included rather than $1,100 for a new one if I needed another.

Also, I have learned that it is quicker and cheaper to open it up and fix it myself if it does fail.

Dean, thank you for the info. I think the transmitter is there for the dash signal but I don't see the part you'd carry in the coach. I'll ask about it.

CampDaven, I had that page saved. Thank you!
