Proportional Braking

A vast improvement over "on/off" systems, which brake at a single pre-set level, the Patriot 3 has a proportional design for equal braking. The actuator inside your towed car applies the brakes with the same intensity that you apply to them in your RV. If you slam on the RV's brakes in an emergency situation, the Patriot 3 engages your towed car's brakes with virtually the same intensity. If you press the RV's brakes just enough to slow a bit, your towed car's brakes are depressed just enough to slow it down, as well. The result is improved control, better stopping and less wear on both your vehicle's and RV's brakes.

After lots of research and interviewing other RVers, we choose the Blue Ox Patriot 3 brake. E-trailer had it in stock and shipped the next day. Unfortunately, it will be about six weeks before we have a chance to get it installed and in service. Will report back then ... 892388

This review is for E-Trailer. I ordered a complete dinghy towing set-up for the dinghy as a towbar came with the RV we purchased. I called E-Trailer and spoke with a very knowledgeable young lady and when I told her what I needed in layman’s terms she came up with what I would need to complete the dinghy preparation in order to safely tow it behind our RV. Everything they said it would do went just as the instructions directed. I ordered a Roadmaster Falcon 2 set up for the dinghy and they suggested a Blue Ox self contained braking system for the SUV itself. hey also suggested the complete wiring system and plug for the dinghy. To my amazement after the RV and dinghy were connected that also was as easy as they said it would be. Our first tow with the dinghy was great and the unhooking was also a very easy experience. This company was awesome to work with. Thank you for your knowledge and great products. 893189

Went well except for instructions installing baseplate for my 2017 Silverado. After grille removal was not close to the instructions. I [looked for installation videos for] 2018 model and instructions for grill and bumper removal was right.

Easy to install and set up. Towed across the US in 3 days and the wireless display saved the brakes on our Jeep (the unit bounced and tipped over after driving over large bumps). Double edged sword, the unit is really light and easy to take in/out but is so light that large road bumps can jostle it. Adjusting the feet on the base of the unit and driver's seat seemed to help. 820146

I did a lot of research on these portable units and discovered that this blue ox patriot II has excellent reviews compared to other options. It is very easy to use compared to my old brake buddy system I had before. I relied on the recommendations I saw on an etrailer video and as usual they didn’t steer me wrong. I have a 2019 Equinox and a 1998 Jeep. It works well on both. Overall an excellent product sold by an outstanding company. 613814

Overall, the Blue Ox system has worked out great. I had read a lot of reviews, mostly positive, but some who had some difficulty with the installation, but in my case I had no real difficulty at all. The base plate lined up good, I did use a pry bar to spring it a bit, but nothing major. Ok, so this review if for the entire Blue Ox base plate, Blue Ox Alpha, Patriot II and Hopkings light kit package. I deviated a bit from the base plate installation procedure. I never used the vice grips, I simply installed the 5/8" bolts, leveled the plate and torqued them up after applying red Locktite. I was able to wedge/slip the spacer bars into position and then I drilled the frame using the base plate/spacer bar combination to keep the drill perfectly aligned. I did not have a 17/32 drill so I simply used a 1/2" drill to start each hole. I then swapped down to a 1/4" drill to punch through the frame and progressively drilled the hole larger until I got to the 1/2" bit. I have a Drill Doctor to keep my bits very sharp so they do not drift or wander. Great tool for your shop if you do not have one. I also drilled the hole toward the rear first. Once that was complete, I installed the rear most 1/2" bolt, Locktite and torqued that bolt. I then started a 1/2" hole using the base plate, swapped to the smaller bit and again progressively drill to 1/2" using the spacer as a guide and installed the front 1/2" bolt with Locktite and then torqued. I can see where if you installed the front bolt first, it would be difficult to reach the rear to get the nut started. I rechecked the torque on all the bolts once installed. Word of caution, the nuts have some "teeth" to bite into the frame when installed. These kind of nuts do not want to be tightened and loosened repeatedly. You want to install them once and go right to tightness. Less risk of breaking the wire that is welded to the nuts because the teeth are initially sharp and will bite into the frame. If you tighten and loosen these nuts the teeth get duller and will not grab very well. The purpose of the wire is only to align the nut with the bolt. I did slightly "kink" the wires on the bolts so the nuts started easily on the threads of the bolt. To refit the air dam underneath, I simply measured the distance between the left and right side of the base plate and transferred that dimension to the plastic dam. Rather than cut with a knife, I drilled a 1/2" hole in the plastic dam at the bottom end, used masking tape to mark my cut lines and then finished with a fine tooth jigsaw cutting 1/2" slots. Since the base plate is 1/4" thick the 1/2" slots give me a bit of play and look nice and even. I did not take photos yet, but if I can get back here I'll post a few of the finished product. Among the things I really like about this is how up tight and close the base plate connections are to my bumper. You really do not notice the base plate when you look at the front of the Jeep which to me gives it a nice clean look. I got a Patriot II remote braking system. It took me longer to route the "break away wire" and switch than to set up the remote control. The Hopkins brake light package was easy to install and directions were clear. Spent most of my time deciding how to route the wires from rear to front. 563947

  • What Is The Max AMP Draw Of The Blue Ox Patriot 3 Supplemental Braking System
    According to Blue Ox the Blue Ox Patriot 3 Radio Frequency part # BRK2019 draws .50 amp (half an amp) when just plugged in. When activating the brakes it draws 1.50 amps so it will not drain the battery as long as you unplug if the vehicle will be sitting for a longer period of time. Blue Ox compares the power draw on the battery to charging a cell phone.

    The best supplemental braking system for your situation is the Blue Ox Patriot 3 part # BRK2019 which is a portable braking system.

It is compatible with power assist brakes so if you decide to switch to a hybrid tow vehicle in the future the Patriot will be compatible. However, I have checked the owner's manual for the 2007 Honda Fit and it looks like Honda does not recommend...
