Roadmaster InvisiBrake Install

Greetings all;
Has anyone installed a Invisibrake on a New model GMC Canyon or Chevy Colorado? I have a 2022 GMC Canyon and have planned to locate the main control under the rear seat. The Air cylinder is a little more difficult to locate, I've actually considered mounting it under the hood. The problem is under the seat is I have Electric seats and no room. Also since the battery has to be disconnected to tow, what is the best source of power, positive post on disconnected Battery, or run 12VDC from Coach.


Thanks In Advance

I don't know if you have looked at the Ready Brake system, but it's a whole lot simpler, and is completely proportional braking.

The only thing you have to do to your toad is run the cable from your brake pedal to the front of your toad.

Most brake lights come on whenever the brakes are applied, key on or off, so all that's needed is signal and tail lights wired to your toad.

If you go with the Invisibrake, I see no reason you can't put the air tank under the hood. Just use a little larger air line.

So, on my canyon, since the controller will not fit under either front seat, can it go in the engine compartment. The controller doesnít look to be waterproof, so my concern is it getting wet. It would fit under the back seats, but I lose what little storage I have. I think I can make the air controller under the dash in front of the driver, but could put under the hood if need be. The system was given to me by the prior owner of the motor home so will save a lot of money if I can make it work.

You could always buy a small waterproof container to put the controller in, then mount that under your hood. Lots of options. We have Princess Auto here in Canada, but Harbour Freight will have some to choose from as well. Well under $50.00. Something like this......

I installed my control box under my rear seat but you can install it behind the rear seat or in behind the spare tire or anywhere it will fit , except where it will get wet . the cylinder will fit under the front seat as it is only 1 inch in diameter , as far as pulling a fuse the invisibrake charges the battery as you drive so you may not need to pull a fuse , check with Roadmaster .
