Auxiliary braking system

We use the RVIBRAKE3 as our tow vehicle braking system. At least 5 times the brake claw has slipped off the vehicles pedal, and three times the plastic connection from the units piston to the brake claw has snapped under the pressure of applying the vehicles brakes. RVIBRAKE3 has been apologigic and has sent replacement parts, saying this does happen sometimes. Most recently they sent me a metal connection replacement. Has anyone else had this type of problem, and if so what did you do? Thank you

Sounds like the company is being responsive. We use a mounted system no longer available (US Gear Tow Brake) and haven't had this type of issue.

I suggest you call the company again and try to work out with them why this problem recurs with your unit. Maybe you'll get a response from someone with your same brake unit.
I think we need to stop calling it "working from home" and start calling it "living at work!"
