Roadmaster Invisabrake Install In AZ ~ Options?

Hey everyone, thanks for checking my post!

I have read that Camping World will install Roadmaster gear if purchased from the store. I have also heard there is a 93.4% chance the system will never work correctly once you let them touch your motorhome/toad. I am not a fan of Camping World and plan to never give them my business. However, having the product installed for free has got me searching for a dealer/hitch shop that does the same work but actually knows what they are doing. Has anyone had any good experiences around the Phoenix area with an install? Thanks again!

Chris

I purchased and had Camping World install an Invisa Brake for me. The job was not done well and I re did a portion of it myself. On the other hand I had purchased a different model of braking system including installation from Camping World at a different location and on a different Coach and toad with very positive results.
It seems to me that whenever you deal with anyone ya just takes your chances!
Then when you try and try again and you finally find one that you can live with, you head for the bar for a celebration and a welcome refreshment!

Agree; talk to the installer after you have read the install manual. If you don't feel warm and fuzzy; walk.




Cheers,

Agree with above comments. Had full Roadmaster package installed on our 15 Ford Fusion Hybrid 11,000 miles ago. Works easily and can be set up in under 5 minutes. Bought Motorhome at Camping world in Portland, the install at Roadmaster factory in Vancouver. Maybe that's why it has been trouble free

Contact RV Renovators in Mesa. They will be able to help either with the install or refer you to a shop that can do it.

I agree with your sentiment on Camping World. I had my Invisabrake installed initially at Camping World. It would be too long a post to describe all of the horrors I faced in doing so, but suffice it to say, they screwed up numerous things, and after several visits, the guy installing it and his supervisor were both scratching their heads and then explaining they would have to re-wire my factory tow vehicle wiring to make it work. I said no thanks and walked away. Roadmaster recommended a local vendor in my area. I paid an extra $350 to do the things Camping World failed at (to include one other item in addition to the Invisabrake), but I've not had a single issue with my system since. I would call Roadmaster and ask if they can recommend a shop in your area.
