Toad Brake controller

I am setting up my 2014 Jeep Wrangler to tow. I ordered the Blue Ox Alladin tow bar and Base Plate. Now looking to get a Brake controller.

Looking for pro's and con's for Brake Buddy, Blue Ox Patriot, and RVI Brake.

I put air brakes on my jeep. I think they work the best and I do not have a controller.
I do not like any of the above as they are too much of a hassle to hook up and unhook.

I also put the air brakes on my Bronco II so I can pull either one.
No I do not have air brakes on the RV.

Have InvisiBrake installed and works great. Nothing to install/remove at each hook up to tow vehicle. Just plug into RV and and Attach breakaway clip. Takes 5 seconds.

You may also want to take a look at the US Gear Unified Tow Brake, and the SMI Stay-in-Play. They are a little more expensive than some, but once they are installed they do a very good job with almost no effort required.

Installed the M&G on my 2012 Jeep. I am very happy with the braking. I really like that it works direct off the RV air. It wasn't cheap, but neither was the Motorhome or Jeep. I will feel much safer and confident with the braking as we will be travelling through the mountains a lot.

Yes M&G was the air brake system I put on my Jeep also even though the MH does not have air brakes. I look at all of the systems and M&G seemed like the best one to install.

Here is the link to them:

I'm Ann M&G guy. It's easy to hook up and provides true proportional braking.
