RMB, can't help you directly, but I have been using the original RVi brake for four years now. Easy setup-- takes about two minutes to go through the tow prep for my car, but of course that would be required no matter which brake system is used. After that-- or actually while the prep going on-- it takes about 30 seconds to set the unit in place, then about 20 seconds for the self test and we're ready to go. Easy setup, easy detach, easy storage. No problems, no failures, very pleased.

Ditto what John said. I have been using the RVI2 for over a year and had great success with it. Easy set up, compact size and works great.

We bought the RVI2 for use in our 2000 Suzuki Vitara. It is easy to use and works very well. The folks there have excellent customer assistance also.
