RoadMaster Insti-Brake system?

Hey, anyone have any experience(s) with the Roadmaster Insti-Brake, tow braking system? Good, or bad? Not much found in the search. Thanks

Do you mean InvisiBrake? If so, I had it on my Jeep and it worked well. Nothing extra to plug in. There is a line that goes to the front of the Motorhome. A red light comes on when the tow vehicle's brakes are being applied.

I had it on my 98 Honda Accord and if Roadmaster has not addressed the problem with it, I would not touch it, there are better systems out there.
If you have a coach with air brakes, SMI Air Force One
If a gas coach, SMI Stay-N-Play
RVI 3 is another.
Ready Brake Brute Elite is an all in one system.

Yep, I do mean Invisibrake. Don't have any idea where I came up with instibrake? Maybe that's why there wasn't much in the search? One of those moments? Thanks

I have the system on my 14 Honda CRV. I put it on last summer and it seems to work well. I plug it in and go.

I have used the same invisibrake on my last two coaches. First one on a 31ft gas 460 ford five speed 2012. Second one our current DP 36ft.( transferred unit from gas coach to DP ) Several trips through Western mtns. with both. Also lots of flatter towing. Tow is 2012 Jeep Wrangler 2dr. Probably about 25000mi. overall. Have never had one problem. But of course with this DP it may not be working at all and I probably wouldn't notice. LOL

Invisibrake Works Well

I have this system and pull a Chevy Colorado. As Gary said, easy hookup. I did have to add a cut off to my vacuum line under hood in the Colorado to avoid getting a warning signal in the Colorado when not towing. No problems unless I forget to cut it off when not towing. Of course sometimes I forget to turn it on. I spent late summer/early fall in Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho with no towing issues. We have had the system on two coaches over the last 4-1/2 years with no problems.
