Installing Invisibrake Near Raleigh, NC

I am not mechanical enough to attempt installing the system. Invisibrake, Sterling tow bar, fuse bypass and bracket for the CRV

Camping World is set to take my Itasca SunStar 30T and 2009 CRV on May 18 to do the install, but can't give an ETA on completion.

Does anyone know another company that can do the work?

We have friends who just bought a new Chevy as a Toad and the Chevy dealer in Greensboro has quoted them a very good price for installing the tow equipment on their new car. You might try your Honda dealer to see if they might have experience in doing this or know somebody that does.

Consider a charge line to keep the CRV battery up.

Don't want to pop your bubble, but I would rethink the Invisibrake. Lot of RVers have had the brakes come on when in tow. I have it on my 1998 Honda Accord and the brakes have come on when raining, not a good thing. I could have pulled it off and installed on my 2011 Ford Edge but I went with the SMI Air Force One.

Call Jerry at TenTen Auto Service in Apex to see if he'll do it. He has installed the AF1 system on my coach and towed car. The price was very reasonable. My baseplate was installed by College Park back in 2007 before Plemmons bought it.
On edit, you could also check with A&M service in Kittrel, NC north of Raleigh about 30 miles.
