I am new here. I will be picking up my motorhome later this week and I need some help on the best auxiliary braking system for my situation.
I think I have analysis paralysis at this point. I have researched them all. M&G, Blue Ox, Ready Brake RViBrake, BrakeBuddy, BrakeMaster as well as others. Then reading reviews there are these horror stories of ruined brakes, tires etc.
Here is my situation:
I will be using two different vehicles to tow depending on situation.
2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Lifted 3.25" with 35" tires. I already have a Blue Ox Aventa tow bar given to me by my father. I am going to use the Blue Ox off road adapters for attachment to my bumper.
Second vehicle will be a 2014 Ford Explorer.
For me a auxiliary brake that I can move from vehicle to vehicle would be best but again those horror stories of ruined tires and brakes. Maybe this is from improper installation or setup? Personally I like the idea of mechanical operation but since I am towing my lifted Jeep and will need a raised receiver adapter, can a mechanical setup, such as the ReadyBrake, be used since it would put additional strain on the receiver? If that is the case then a system such as the Invisibrake may be the best option and I will need to install one in each car.
Thanks for your help!
