Why not connect a bright LED to the brake switch and mount it on the rear view mirror of the toad? You should be able to see the LED in your rear view monitor. Not as convenient as the dash light but I have a dash light and seldom monitor it except immediately after I hook up just to make sure the toad brakes are being applied.

Tried that. A light in the rear view monitor is not a bright as you would think.

Yes the Fob is the transmitter. The 23A 12 Volt battery for the Fob is not shipped with it!
'Good catch on that 12 volt battery. I missed that. Just short the push button and it should work.

Saved that link.

rvi brake also has a display that goes in a 12v plug in th coach and indicates when brakes are applied as well as full control of settings. Test mode applies toad brakes and you feel the tug of the toad and adjust accordingly

Their newer model rvi brake 2 now has tpms incorporated into it.

I used a rear brake light from a motorcycle. I used magnets to hold it on the dash and a quick disconnect for the power. It's really bright and can be seen very well in the backup camera.
