    June 17, 2020Found a towable car and am now trying to find someone to handle the installation of all necessary parts, quite difficult around here (east of Montreal). I have one quote from a company I trust but was informed they do not install supplemental brakes becau...  more

      Dick & Sharon June 17, 2020 What brake system?

        Barr June 17, 2020 The supplemental brake system allows the toad to brake in conjunction with the RV. In some states/provinces it is mandatory.

      Robbie & Alice June 17, 2020 Our Blue Ox has supplemental brake system that works.  Lots of Blue Ox dealers around.

      MRJohnston June 17, 2020 Check out RViBrake.com as we use their iBrake3 and love it.   The only installation required is the breakaway switch and anybody can do that (including you).

        Barr June 17, 2020 Thank you I will look into that, could be a very simple solution.

      Dick & Sharon June 17, 2020 We have an RVI3 brake system.  Plug it into an auxillary plug (cigarette lighter), plug in the breakaway cable and your set.

      WeMustRV June 17, 2020 I use Brake Buddy system as well very easy to install and remove.  By the way it works great and very much an operational supplemental system that helps slow down our Class A and F150 when towing it

      Michael Zike & Lynne Brooks June 17, 2020 We have the Stealth unit from Hopkins Mfg. Works great and they can suggest an installer for you.

      Cinn June 17, 2020 I have the RVI brake system, too. A portable auxiliary brake is simpler to install and can be moved to another car (but the tow bracket probably can't). These units are expensive, (like $1,200!) so pull it out of your car (or hide it well) when not in use...  more

      Martin and Debbie Payne June 17, 2020 I’ll give another vote to RVI brake. I bought it to tow a Jeep Wrangler behind our Holiday Rambler MH. We now have a Tiffin Phaeton and a Ford Explorer, but the same brake controller. Depending on your car you may need to run a wire to the car batter...  more

      Lynne R June 17, 2020 We have RVI brake and it’s portable. Install when you hook up your car. We also have a portable battery pack that we plug it into because we don’t need to have the car ignition on with our manual Fiat.

      John T June 17, 2020 I might go to LazyDaze or General RV but NEVER to Camping World. However that's my opinion to which all are entitled you go where you please......I use a Brake Buddy it works great but there are a ton of aux braking systems out there, do your homework and...  more

      The Rolling Stones June 17, 2020 Okay, so you didn’t say what  Braking system you are leaning towards so it’s difficult to help you out. The very most important part is to have who ever is doing the wiring for the lights install a DeadMan into the cabin of the towed. From there you ...  more

      Martie239 June 18, 2020 If y’all don’t mind my asking, what does everybody have against Camping World. These aren’t the first detrimental remarks that I’ve heard about them. I live in Myrtle Beach, SC and have found that they are always busy and were very helpful to me when I wa...  more

        Randy & Linda B June 18, 2020 They are a big company and there are bad dealerships and good ones within the company.

        Hiding from Gnats June 19, 2020 In traveling around the US, I've been in probably 20+ CW.  If I were to use them, there were only 3 I would even consider. Flagstaff, AZ (closed), Albuquerque, NM, and Lake Park, GA.  Experience at others has been ok to extremely poor.  I h...  more

      The Rolling Stones June 18, 2020 Martie239, Most of the complaints are connected with the mechanical service side of the business. There are some horrific stories out there about some CW Service Centers (actually the majority of them) providing extremely poor service or just screwing thi...  more

      MRJohnston June 18, 2020 Another item I recommend is an auxiliary battery charger (sold by RViBrake.com) so you don’t get to your destination with a dead toad battery.

        Robbie & Alice June 18, 2020 If it is wired correctly, you shouldn't need an auxiliary battery.
      • Barr
        MRJohnston June 18, 2020 I don’t know how one would do that.  if your key has to be on to tow you are using juice.   My opinion is “better safe than sorry”.  It’s just something I recommend.
      • Barr
        WeMustRV June 18, 2020 I have the Charger mentioned above and if you have to have the key on then you need to direct wire to the battery using a fused harness.  This also assures that you get the full benefit of the battery.  Some aux. powerports do not carry full voltage

      Bandit455 June 18, 2020 I just ran a lead, fused at each end, from coach batteries to toad battery. 3 years, 23,000 miles and zero issues.
