Roadmaster 9700 problem

I'm hoping someone might have input on an issue I am experiencing with the Roadmaster 9700 portable brake system. The shop has been trying to figure it out since Sunday (maiden voyage) and I have a feeling I'll get information here that they had not considered.

2002 fleetwood southwind 35r pulling a 2014 jeep wrangler sport with roadmaster falcon all terrain. They installed it on Sunday and it works mostly well. It applies the brake on the Jeep when I brake the mh, breakaway feature works flawlessly, all lights and signals work, but when I come to a complete stop, the 9700 doesn't release the Jeep brakes for about 15 seconds.

FYI, "they" = mobile rv service that picked up my rv from the guy I bought it from and they did a great job on all the things that needed to be fixed. So I feel they are qualified and may have just missed a vehicle specific step.

I'll be forwarding them any input I receive here.

Well, they are coming to install a battery disconnect on advice from roadmaster. It will eliminate the back feed causing the Jeep to keep the brakes applied. But it will reset my clock and radio presets every time I tow it. Does this sound right? Not a very elegant solution...

Take a look at page 22 of the 9700 manual, It talks of this actual item for troubleshooting.

It sure does! Thanks! I had to download it as the repair guy had the manual still. I wonder why roadmaster support line gave him the other advice...
