Towing 2012 Equinox, Need install information for Invisibrake

I ordered an Invisibrake from CW. On the day of install, they called me and told me that they couldn't install it because of a sensor in the vacuum canister line. I had done my homework on Roadmaster's website, and the Equinox has been installed at their factory. I called their tech support and confirmed, and told me there is a work around, but didn't have anything to send me exactly what needs to be done. Question: Does anyone have something they can email me on what needs to be done to install the invisibrake on my Equinox? Pictures, instructions, parts needed, whatever. Or post here. Thanks

Return the invisibrake and go with a Ready brake. It's a DIY surge brake that goes between your hitch and the tow bar. It's all done with cables and only costs about $400. I hear about too many issues with Camping World service Departments to ever give them a job like that...

Ditto: Far to many parts and pieces,. My next one will definitely be the Ready Brute.

Update...
Went to CW, to question them on a couple things. First was on the way they installed my tow bar.
Being new to towing a toad, I watched the tech measure the heights of both the mh and the toad. He didn't say a thing. I learned about the safe zone by reading the manual (HINT READ THE OWNERS MANUAL) Mine didn't look right to me when I got home. Turns out there was a 6, count em six inches difference between the mh and my toad. Danger Will Robinson... I'd bought a Roadmaster hi-low when I discovered that. The service manager gave me the deer in the headlights look, and told me he would have a talk with the tech. Don't think ill be hearing back from him... As far as the Invisibrake, it seems cw wouldn't install it, because of company policy not to modify systems that could affect the vehicle. (Not like improperly installing a tow bar could affect the vehicle). Anyway, I'll be extremely cautious about what I'll entrust cw with in the future. Guess I can learn to live with Break Buddy for the next few years...
