Description


ROADMASTER INC 4119
An even better way to brake your towed vehicle!
Even Brake by Roadmaster is the only portable, proportional towed car braking system that constantly monitors itself, giving you continuous information about system status and function for maximum towing and braking safety. It's a step ahead of all other portable, supplemental towed car braking systems on the market today!

EXCLUSIVE Even Brake Features:

  • Full-time proportional braking - Even Brake applies the same braking pressure to your towed car as you apply to your motorhome brakes for consistent braking throughout the stop, with no "drop out" after a few seconds of continuous braking.

  • Constant braking information and system status keeps you in touch with towed car braking capability at all times for maximum towing safety.

  • Continuous self-diagnostic testing – Even Brake is the only supplemental braking system that checks itself, so you don’t have to – a glance at the monitor assures you that Even Brake is fully operational.

  • Terrain-sensing logic – Even Brake adjusts to uphill or downhill grades, and to rough terrain, by automatically leveling itself. Because it’s always level, Even Brake always brakes with maximum efficiency.

  • Three-tier monitor offers red-green-yellow LED display, LCD text message and audio alert to eliminate any guesswork about system status.

  • Automatic low battery protection – if the battery voltage drops too low, Even Brake goes into sleep mode, while retaining emergency braking power.

ADDITIONAL Even Brake Features:

  • Automatic brake protection – the monitor alerts you after an extended period of continuous braking, then Even Brake releases braking pressure, avoiding excessive wear on the towed vehicle’s brakes.

  • Touch pad control panel makes programming fast and easy.

  • Adjusts to your braking preferences on braking force and sensitivity; on-board memory remembers settings after you disconnect it.

  • Automatically delivers maximum braking pressure in an emergency or a break away situation – Even Brake works the most when you need it the most.

  • 20% smaller than other systems, to fit more vehicles-including Jeep Liberty

  • Transmitter is incorporated inside the unit

  • Only 2 connections in the towed car: power cord and diagnostics feed

When you apply your motorhome's brakes, Even Brake's microprocessor signals a magnetic valve to release a proportionate amount of air pressure against the towed car's brake pedal, slowing the towed car at the same rate as the coach.

Advantages of Even Brake's Proportional Braking:

  • Full emergency braking when you need it, no excessive brake wear during normal braking (unlike basic "on or off" systems)

  • Stop completely in less time and shorter distance

  • Reduced chance of critical brake failure, such as when descending steep mountain grades

Why Use a Supplementary Towed Car Braking System?

  • It’s required in most U.S. states and Canadian provinces (Even Brake meets all current U.S. and Canadian requirements)

  • Prevents voiding motorhome chassis warranty by towing more than specified limits without supplementary brakes(Workhorse: 1000 lbs. Ford: 1500 lbs.)

  • Reduce wear on motorhome brakes, extending their life

  • Reduce stress on tow bar, mounting brackets and towed car frame

Even Brake comes complete with an emergency break away system that brings your towed car to a controlled stop if it accidentally separates from the motorhome; an easy-to-read, wireless dashtop monitor with red/yellow/green LED braking condition indicator, LCD text message status explanation and audio emergency alert tone, and the compact, lightweight braking unit that fits easily into virtually any vehicle, including compact SUVs. Requires one-time installation and set-up, available at our SuperCenters nationwide.

I have used for 3 years and a total of 20,000+ miles of usage. Monitor tells me when it is working and even warned me once of a low battery developing in my towed vehicle. Simple to use and I can move it between 2 different vehicles that I tow.

After Road Master was told of my problems, they have offered to install there Brake Master system, free of charges, in Vancouver, Washington the next time I travell in that direction, which may be this fall. This system will be hooked up directly to my air brakes on the coach. They feel that possibly that there may have been a wiring problem with the Even Brake at installation. The bottom line is that I am very satisfied with this offer and that they were very willing to come up with a solution to solve my problems. They were very quick to respond to my situation.

Easy to use, set-up is a breeze, works great every time. Just make sure you have a constant 12v to the remotes in tow vehicle & motorhome. Highly recommend!

The Roadmaster Even Brake system I purchased often turns the red light on indicating the brakes are being applied in the towed car, but then does not turn the red light off. Also, after two or three days towing a message sometimes appears saying the battery in the towed car is too low and the Even Brake system is going into a reduced functionality mode. The towed car is brand new and the battery checks out as good. The braking part appears to work ok, but the communications between the towed car and the coach is marginal.

I have towed my Honda over 9000 miles and the performance of the Roadmaster Even Brake has been excellent. One time the brake system wanted to climb the seat and that was solved by raising the seat a little. My wife has assumed responsibility for attaching the tow car and installing the brake and she finds it an easy task.

In June, 2006, we purchased a new car (2006 Hyundai Tucson) specifically for towing behind our 2005 Class A 32' motorhome. We left Portland, Oregon, in mid-July and headed East on I-84. Between Portland and Twin Falls, Idaho, the motorhome Evenbrake monitor indicated that the brakes were being applied about 5 times while driving along the highway at about 60 mph. Each time, we drove to the side of the highway, disconnected the system, and re-set it; this seemed to correct the false information indicated on the monitor. About 4 miles West of Twin Falls, while traveling about 60 mph, we heard a "screech", looked in the video monitor, and were shocked to see that the Hyundai was being dragged with locked brakes; the monitor indicated that the brakes were being applied; the motorhome brakes were not being applied. This continued for about 200 yards; we were unable to immediately pull to the side as it was a construction area. Finally, we were able to pull over, re-set the system and go along our way. In Ogden, Utah, we contacted the installer of the system, and after a few calls were told to disconnect the system for the remainder of the trip. The ultimate result was that Roadmaster (through the efforts of the installer) replaced the unit upon our return home, and the new unit works properly without false signals and without applying the brakes except when the motorhome brakes are applied. Not only did we travel about 1,500 miles without a braking system (in violation of the laws of 6 states) ,we had to replace two tires that had become "square" because of the inappropriate braking obviously caused by the Evenbrake unit. Roadmaster seems to have no interest in the cost of the tire replacement, and does not respond to our request for a measly $165 reimbursement. It looks like we will have to resort to Small Claims court to get their attention. (the money is insignificant - the cavalier attitiude and the responsibility of RoadMaster is the issue.)

Initial problems, but generably reliable...

I've been using this product for approximately 8500 miles on a Jeep Liberty 4x4 pulled behind a 37' Class-A motorhome. NEGATIVE NOTE: I'm currently using my fourth Evenbrake unit. Three units each malfunctioned within 30 days of use. The compressor failed on the first unit. The second and third units eventually failed to pressurize due to internal air leaks; the compressors would run continuously. I had some trouble exchanging the second unit while on the road. The sales person did not want to exchange the unit because it was user-installed. The store manager was "in a meeting" and was unable to help with my problem. The sales person eventually decided to exchange the unit after I explained how it was self-contained and there was nothing I could do to cause the air leak. I personally expect more after purchasing a $1200 product. POSITIVE NOTE: When working, the unit functions very well. I tow a Jeep Liberty 4x4 and the unit does a good job of slowing the liberty at its highest setting. I have experienced the previously noted remote sensor problem four times and cycling the reciver power does appear to correct the problem. Installation was easy-to-moderate for a shade-tree mechanic. TECH NOTE: Evenbrake support team recommends cracking your vehicle windows if you're using the Evenbrake on a hot day.

Remote Sensor

The system works great, and the unit is quite easy to hookup and remove from the tow vehicle once you've done it a time or two. (The actual original installation of the system is very extensive and, in my opinion, best left to paid professionals, however.) Our only problem has been false readings on the remote system inside the motorhome. After braking a few times repeatedly, the remote sometimes indicates that the tow car is still being braked, even though it is not (yes, we have pulled over and checked the system in the tow car). Now, we just unplug and replug the remote from the 12V outlet. This clears the false reading and resets the remote so it is working correctly again.

I see that some of the reviews have had a problem with the unit staying fixed on the tow vehicle floor. Solve this with a bungie cord. It works

I had this unit installed just before a trip to Fl. Worked very well. I did have to do some seat adjusting, but you have to test the unit before operation and this allowed me to see that it was climbing the seat before I hit the road. The bar on the unit can be moved up and down so finding the correct positon was not a problem. This unit worked great on this trip, about 900 miles. Hope it keeps up the good work.

Safe, Easy and Reiable System


305 out of 476 people found this review helpful.
December 29, 2005
This system worked very well. I had to use it during a panic stop situation on one of our California freeways. The emergency stop override system applied a maximum amount of braking pressure to my tow vehicle's brakes and my entire rig stopped straight and safe. After this one incident I felt that the system more than paid for it’s self by saving the back of my motor home and the front of my tow car. I was in constant touch with my towed car at all times. The self-diagnostic test system recognized a problem that had occurred during a very steep downhill grade and alerted me instantly. I stopped safely, re-adjusted the unit and went on my way in a matter of minutes. I found that set up was as fast and easy as I was told, and the system remembered all my settings even after I disconnect it. However, I did notice that after having to stop several times I had to go back to the car and re-adjust the unit because it wanted to climb up the front of the driver's seat. Regardless, it was such a minor inconvenience especially after the performance it delivered during my entire trip, I didn't care a bit. I felt very safe and it was very comforting to knowing that I had a quality braking system incase I needed it for an emergency stop. The system even comes complete with an emergency breakaway system that I hope to never need. I would buy it again without giving it another thought.

For the most part it was good. However what I did notice that after having to stop several times I had to go back to the car and re-seat the unit because it climbed over the front seat.
