We have a Blue Ox Patriot. It's the only one I have used, so I won't say it's better or worse than others.
It has worked well since 2010 with 20 trips and over 38,000 miles. There are sometimes false applications due to rough roads. When that happens I quickly dial the gain back to zero. It releases quicker that way compared to waiting for it to clear. I usually run it off the toad's battery. If we tow more than two days without starting the toad it will run the toad battery down. I have added a power wire from the coach's trailer plug to the toad battery to keep it charged.
