RVI brake 2. VS Delta Force ?

Has anyone done research and compared the RVI Brake 2 vs. Delta Force?

Both are by very reputable competent companies.....and I don't think either one would be a "poor" choice.....

But the features of the Delta Force (made the same folks that make "Air Force One") seem intriguing.

Let's open up discussion and hear any relevant comments.

First I don't have one I use a Roadmaster Brakemaster because the ease of transfer from toad to toad, mostly from owners that I trust that have them and their raving reviews and the ease of use and transfer from coach to coach and the IRv brake 2 website and their explanation of how it operates.

My vote is for the RVi2 system. In my opinion the size and shape is better, the remote has a display, the pedal clamp is self adjusting, it supports passive and active brake systems, you can add tire pressure monitors, and it does not push on the seat.

Did you go to the website? My screenshot cuts off much of the reading material.....sorry it wouldn't all fit 😃

The Delta Force does NOT push on the seat.....it has a cable connected to the firewall which holds it in position.

It also has a patented easy to use pedal clamp.

It also supports passive and active brake systems.

Plus it has this:

Dual-Signal Braking Profile
The only portable system to offer dual-signal braking. Delta Force will operate as a fully-proportional, inertia-based system; but, with optional addition (parts included) of the brake light signal from the coach Delta is automatically transformed to a level no portable system before has been to.

Unless you tow a bunch of different cars I give 'em both a resounding thumbs down.

Story elsewhere on the forums in a Tire Pressure Monitor thread. about a man who noticed the tires on his towed heating up..

Every time you tow you have to install those systems (Both of 'em) and this means there is a chance to make a mistake.. That is what happened, he made a mistake, had the TPMS not caught it, he could have either had to do a brake job when he got where he was going, or he might have had a towed fire.

I have spoken to folks who, when towing a short distance (Say to the dealer), OH, forget it, too much trouble for this short tow.

I much prefer an installed system, Bolted in once, and then to tow you just plug in a cord or two... Way better in my not at all humble opinion, It is always there,, and if the original install is done right (mine was not, but I fixed it,,,, after a brake job,,,,) then all you need do is hook up the control cord a few seconds, so no temptation to "oh forget it" for a short tow. Like when I towed the car a mile up to PEP boys for a new fuel pump.
