RVIBrake2 need to be level?

I just received a new RVIBrake2 and have discovered it can't sit level on the floor board of my 2010 Ford Flex due to the floorboard design, it has to be raised up on one end by about 2".

Anyone know if this is OK, will the unit function properly?

You have the actuator arm pulled out quite a ways. With the arm all the way back in the unit, will it not connect and sit flat? On my Jeep, the arm only comes out on or two notches. The unit must have a solid surface behind it to push against.

As the other post said, contact their customer service. They are excellent to deal with an will help you out.

CS provided me a bracket that attached to my chair frame that allowed MY unit to sit flat on the floor.

I tried moving it flat on the floor (in front of the weird hump) with the cylinder all the way back; It is just too far forward and can't connect to the pedal. If I raise the front of the unit with a piece of wood level with the weird hump in the back the cylinder pushes too directly at the pedal, the top of the pedal mount rocks away. It was designed to push up towards the pedal, not directly at it at 90 degrees so that doesn't work either.

I can put something behind the machine to keep the back from sliding upwards and backwards, I just don't know if having it at that angle effects the braking logic. I know my Techonsha brake controller doesn't care what angle it was at and it worked, hopefully this thing is OK in that same manner.

Perhaps I've found the first car that this thing will not work, problem is the place I bought it has a 20% restocking fee, so returning will cost me over $200 for nothing. That's not RVI's fault, but it sure is bad for me.

I'll call them Monday, I tried today, they don't work weekends.

They got back with me, they say it is ok to have it on an angle like that. Just got to attach a stop plate to the seat legs.

That's great to know about the angle being okay. It looked it would not be a problem but it is best to get it from the manufacturer.
