Like the U.S. Gear System, Roadmaster's Invisibrake also has its own vacuum pump (to use the toad's power brakes rather than dead pedal) - and also handles the charging of the toad battery from the RV.

Seems newer Blue Ox Patriot (portable) systems now come with their own on board battery. Haven't heard how long they last - or if they are charged from RV...
I'm running the patriot for 2 years now. Has its own battery but is backed up by the toad battery via 12 acc plug. I use a constant hot in my glove box. I've towed for 12 hours straight without starting toad and haven't had any issues.

Flat tow

For ease of preparation we tow a GMC Terrain. It is tow ready and with brake systems and tow bars it is 2 mins on and 2 off.
