Backpacker Posted February 29, 2016 Report Share Posted February 29, 2016 This is a follow-up to my question about tow packages that focused on brands and not specifics of the auxiliary braking system. I have read horror stories about both the Blue Ox Patriot, and the Roadmaster InvisiBrake applying the tow car brakes at the wrong time and ruining tires and brakes. I am a novice at this and would much prefer the additional cost of an expert installation to the risk of vehicle damage. I just purchased a Fleetwood Bounder in January and a Jeep Patriot tow car last week and, in about two weeks, will be taking them from Austin, TX to Springfield, OR. My RV dealer in San Antonio carries Blue Ox tow gear, and currently has the coach to correct punch list items. It would be easiest for me, a single guy, to drive the Jeep from Austin to the dealership and have the installation done there. However, I don't want to purchase a Blue Ox Patriot if it has a bad reputation for malfunctioning.Please please let me know your thoughts and experiences in this matter.
