Purchased the RviBrake a couple of months ago when having toad set up. First time I used it, I got a "dead battery" message on remote display. Found out the 12vt outlet in the dash of my 2012 Subaru was on a 10amp fuse and it was blown. I called RviBrake and was told that the unit should only draw around 8 amps max. Outlet in jockey box is on a 20 amp fuse so I decided to use that one. Now a couple of months later, I just returned from 1000 mile trip down the Oregon coast. Four or five times while driving, got the "dead battery" message again. Each time when I had a chance to stop, I would check small light on the units power plug and it was still lit. I would unplug it, plug it back in push the "auto start" button and everything would be fine for a 100 miles or so, then same problem. Called RviBrake again and their solution was to wire 12vt outlet directly to battery and they supplied their kit free. Haven't had a chance to try it yet but I'm hoping it solves the issue. I do like the size, weight of unit but, it needs to prove that it can work as advertised.
