Prevents Excessive Brake and Tow Bar Wear
Each Brake Buddy® system will remove the entire towed vehicle weight off the motor home’s brakes and tow bar and will not void your chassis warranty.

Exclusive AutoStart™ feature performs diagnostic system check and cycles the towed vehicle’s brake pedal, preventing the flat-spotting of tires.
We provide premium consumer and dealer support before, during and after the sale through a dedicated team of support specialists.
