Did you ask him about the discount?

BTW, he told me they don't give you the replacement parts. They must have the unit there to properly refurbish it with the larger bolt.

Sounds like a misunderstanding to me, you were in the middle of a trip and could not send it back to them for repair,

They could not repair it for you without having it at their facility.

I think I would play nice and get the old one repaired with the new parts or system and then sell one of them, Issue eliminated.

Yes please!!

This has to be very expensive and hard to ship back to the manufacturer. Will RB pay for the shipping?

After changing the old style ReadyBrake system with the bad coupler with the new style system, I have noticed that the new connector has begun to loosen up somewhat. So I have discarded the NSA product and upgraded to a new towing system. I have lost my confidence in there products.

Again I'm not here to trying to say NSA is a bad company. There just is no warranty.

I have a ready brake hooked to a All terrain tow bar. The ready brake unit bent while on vacation in October. Called them and sent it back, it was reired and returned to me within days. I did pay shipping to them. The ready brake is at least 5 years old

halfprice, ChasL
The parts are in Michigan and I am in Nevada. So the pictures will have to wait. The issue that I have is that rather than warranty the coupling style joint of the older unit design, I was given no choice or option on replacing the old part hence no warranty.
I believe that the both of you have the newer design version and the issue you have with the cable rubbing on the stow bracket is the shielded cable should not be used. Use a unshielded cable or remove the stow bracket.

Showing a picture of the part that my unit at this time would only create more arm chair engineers.

thanks for the info! i'm using an "all terrain" tow bar as well, so your info is exactly what i was looking for. do you know or did the manufacturer explain why the readybrake bent? is it made of all steel or partially with aluminum?

They were surprised to hear that it bent since I'm towing a wrangler. They have heard of it happening when towing a large dually pickup on occassion. The bending can occur if there is a sudden rise in the rear of the MH and then a rapid drop, such as going over a high speed bump. I was the first wrangler they heard of. I'll post a pic tomorrow.
