It appears that whoever buys one is sworn to secrecy

Hope it wasn't much better than the $995.00 I just spent , or I may have to make a call on Monday.
Happy trails.

Getting the bus out of storage this week and getting new tires on her then home so I can get all hooked up and tested before we take off this summer. Trying to get my 'honey dos' done between work and before bringing bus home because DW knows once I get the coach home, that's where I'll be. Glad it worked good and I'm sure mine will as well. Thanks for the update.

We just got back from a 6300 mi trip and the only issue I had with it was the monitor would lose communication called Dan at RVI and he shipped us an extended antenna to our frist destination put it on and it solved the issue no more problems for the rest of the trip great product and very good customer support

RVI Brake

We just returned from a 3000 mile trip with RVI brake. It worked well. I seem to have problems with my toad in that RVI brake was always telling me I had a low battery and would shut itself off....as is in its design. I'm going to install a unit that will allow my mh to charge my battery. I'm hoping that solves my problem. Dan will answer all questions and he also sent me at different antenna at no cost to correct the loss of communication issue.

Finally got to use our RVI Brake this past week. Trip from Chatt to Kingston NH to visit DW's family. allworked good and only had a loss of communications a couple times. Worst problem I had was 1st day power pluc would work loose from pickup 12v socket, moved it to 12v socket in center console and that fixed that. Was thinking of getting a 6' 12v extender cable and moving the monitor over by side window instead of right of steering wheel in dash. Wonder if cell phones or myfi or Sirius radio was interfering with it. Few more days here then of to the Poconos for a week, then side trip to New,ar to pick up a few parts and a tour. Hope all are having a safe 4th.

I've had my RVI Brake System about three months and have taken three trips for a total of about a 1000 miles. Everthing has worked perfectly without any problems so far. I test the system every time I use it and one can certainly feel the braking action from my toad. It's a real confidence booster that the system is working. Try it, you'll like it!
