They're made by Husky, super heavy duty magnets, high quality, similar to the Grote lights. Picked up a 7-4 Flat adapter to complete the system. Next step is to look into the aux brake.

The ReadyBrake looks promising, pure analog, no screwing around with vacuum pumps or hydraulics, no cutting into the wiring harness or having to install or remove or store a brake box every time I touch the toad.

Maybe I'll get lucky and find a used one.

Its not the destination, its the journey

I've used a Tow Mate wireless magnetic for several years and like it. I sometimes charge it while on the road.
The only problem I've had is the plug on the back of the motorhome getting corroded preventing the transmitter from making a good connection. I finally changes the plug and no problems.

How about wireless LEDs from Tractor Supply Company? They work great for me.
