We have been given a Tow-V-Aire braking system from a friends family. This comes with a Roadmaster Falcon 2 towing system.
I need some help with :
1- How does the Tow-V-Aire system hook up in the tow vehicle?
2- Number of cables needed to have this system complete. I have been told that there is a cord that plugs in cigarette lighter in tow vehicle? I do not have a cable for this or we are missing something.
If you know any internet sites or you have first hand knowledge on this Tow-V-Aire towing system, please email me or post here.
We do know this is an older system, and was used last year before our friend retired from RVing. He is not longer around to ask questions.
Thank you for your help. Buying a different system is not an option at this time.
Hi guys, Was searching for a new unit and saw your post. We're you able to get up and running? Sadly mine overheated (valve was leaking and compressor was running almost constant) and now I'm nervous using it. I contacted the inventor but that was a few years ago. I can hopefully help walk you through the set up if you still need help. Really simple system.
Entered Tow V Aire to my browser and found reference to it but no current info. This tells me it either no longer is available or never was successful. No reference to the product for parts or operating manuals, successes or failures, nothing about it's operating procedure or simplicity of use etc., hints to me that I don't think I want to go there. As for the Roadmaster Tow bars etc. I think they are one of the best, but I'm prejudice because I've been using them for over 12 years with no problems.
There are many supplemental braking systems that have been around for a number of years and have a proven track record, some very complicated and expensive, some reasonably priced and functional. Just keep digging and pay attention to the ones that get the most rave revues.
Personally, I've had the same Roadmaster-Brakemaster 9000 System unit ( it's on the higher end of the price scale ) on two separate Class A's. Originally a 1990 32' Winnebago Chieftain gasser in 2001 and now transferred to my current old DP and had 2 Jeep Cherokees and the current Dodge Durango hooked up to it with never a problem and the combined towing is in excess of 60,000 miles. I endorse this system. Other folks have had great success with other brands. Just make sure the product has a good history, several of these systems have been around for several years and some have survived and thrived and some have died.
I can't recommend or defer you from any of the others because I have no personal experience with them.
I'd pass on this Tow V Aire unit just for the lack of info. Keep digging.
