"BrakeSwitch" Exhaust Brake Controller

Does any one have a Brake Switch Controller that they are no longer using?
This allows the use of cruise control and exhaust brake at the same time.

The company who manufactured this devise is no longer in business and I am unable to locate another supplier.

I have a Brake Switch installed in my coach with an exhaust brake only, and it does not allow the use of cruise control and the exhaust brake at the same time.

By leaving the exhaust brake switch in the on position, all it does is activate the exhaust brake when you step on the service brake, and deactivates it when you step on the throttle. In my case whenever the exhaust brake is activated it cancels the cruise control.

The reason the company is out of business is because both Cats and Cummins engines can be programed to provide essentially the same function. Although my Brake Switch works as intended I wish I had known this prior to installing it.
