Road master Invisibrake

Has anyone used the Roadmaster Invisibrake? I'm installing one in my Chevy Eqionox and will tow it with a 2016 Concord.

Do some more digging. I was looking at it also, but apparently there are a set of issues with the system when towing in wet conditions. From what I gather is is sensitive to stray power currents at the plug or the rear diodes and will apply the brakes without warning at inopportune times. This apparently has been going on for a couple of years and they have yet to redesign or correct the issue.

I really like the concept, there are a couple of similar units out there that apparently don't have the issues.

Haven't bought mine yet. But I am looking at the BrakeBuddy Stealth, is is very similar to the Invisibrake but apparently is wired up differently and doesn't have the same issue. Still doing my research.

Here is a link to a recent thread about some of the issues with Invisbrake. I see a pattern, but I don't have enough information yet. You would think if there were major issues that it would have had a NTSB recall done on it by now.

I've been using the Invisibrake for a year now. We full time and last year put 17k miles on the coach and never had any issues with the system. We just moved the system over to a new Jeep Wrangler in October and the Invisibrake still works great.

Thanks for the input. After much reading I am going ahead with my Invisabrake. It seams like the issues are due to the diodes and installation. Water will always cause problems but shouldn't be an issue if you maintain the plugs.
