2013 Honda Pilot - Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System

  • Brake Systems
  • Roadmaster
  • Pre-Set System
  • Hydraulic Brakes
  • Fixed System
  • Power Assist Brake Compatible

Get automatic, real-time braking in your towed Honda Pilot with the InvisiBrake. Actuator box installs permanently so that you never have to remove, adjust or reactivate. System connects to RV and engages car brakes when the RV brake lights illuminate.


Features:

  • Braking system activates brakes on towed vehicle when you engage the brakes in your RV
    • Cable pulley tugs towed car's brake pedal gently, gradually and with balanced pressure when brakes are applied in RV
  • Permanent installation - nothing to remove or disconnect
    • Actuator box mounts out of the way - typically beneath the driver's seat
  • One-time setup - no need to readjust or continuously activate
    • System automatically functions when connected to RV
    • Braking pressure does not have to be readjusted after initial setup
  • Compatible with hybrids and other continuous-power-assist automobiles
    • Braking pressure can be adjusted from 5 psi to 80 psi so that an appropriate amount is applied
  • No false braking - activates only when RV brake lights are illuminated
  • Integrated battery protection
    • Bypasses 12V outlet - connects directly to towed car's battery and constantly charges battery when you are towing
    • Provides a trickle charge to the vehicle battery if the running lights are on on the tow vehicle
  • 2-Stage motor home monitor has audible and visual warnings
    • LED monitor illuminates when towed car's brakes are activated
    • Audible alert lets you know if brakes have been activated for too long (approximately 20 seconds)
      • System automatically begins to release pressure after 15 seconds of continuous braking
  • Emergency breakaway device included
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Controller box dimensions: 8-3/4" long x 8-3/4" wide x 2-3/4" tall
  • Power draw: 6 mA - 10.8 amps
  • Maximum braking pressure: 80 psi
  • Limited lifetime warranty


Note: This product does not work on vehicles with a non-electric hydroboost braking system.


When using TrailerMate wiring with the InvisiBrake, it will be necessary to purchase an additonal two diodes, (RM-792 - sold separately), to prevent the towed vehicle's brake signal from back-feeding into the InvisiBrake system and activating it when attempting to drive the vehicle.


Fully Automatic Braking Action

Wire the InvisiBrake into your vehicle, connecting it to the battery and electrical harness, and you never have to remove it. When you're ready to tow your car, just connect the it to your RV via the included electrical cable, and the system is ready to go.


The InvisiBrake is designed to activate the brakes in your towed car upon receiving a signal from your RV that the motor home's brakes have been applied. This signal is sent via the wiring harness whenever the RV's brake lights are illuminated. This way, you get real-time braking action, ensuring that your towed car brakes at the same time and for the same duration as the brakes in your RV. In addition, there will be no false braking when you hit bumps or potholes.


Adjustable Pressure Settings

The braking pressure of the InvisiBrake can be adjusted from 5 psi to 80 psi depending on your individual application and preferences. Typically, a braking system has to apply an extreme amount of force to activate the towed car's brakes because the vacuum-assist function of the brakes is not active when the ignition is off. This excessive pressure would cause damage to your car if it had "active" brakes. Because this system lets you adjust the braking pressure to a comparatively minimal amount, you can use it on automobiles that have continuous-power-assist brakes, such as Hummers and hybrids, without having to worry about any potential damage.


The pressure setting needs to be adjusted only once, during the initial installation, at which point you can test the system at different settings to determine which feels best. Once the setting is determined, it does not have to be readjusted, so your system is always ready to go.


Permanent, Out-of-the-Way Installation

Most often, the InvisiBrake actuator box installs beneath the front seat of your towed car, neatly tucked away so that you won't see it and it won't take up any storage space in your vehicle. You can, however, install it anywhere in your towed car that is convenient for you, as long as you can still access the adjustment knob.


A bracket and cable pulley will install on the arm of your vehicle's brake pedal. This will not interfere with normal braking function and does not have to be adjusted, removed or activated. The entire system can stay in your car year 'round, waiting for those times when you need to tow. And once you do hook up your car to your RV in preparation for towing, the system will function automatically.

This review is more for eTrailer than the product RM-8700, which is a great product as well. I will be submitting further reviews as I install the device. If you want to work with a knowledgeable staff, one that actually listens to your needs and not a company that simply sells a product just to get numbers. Deal with eTrailer. If your RV has any need these guys know or will find out (as long as its in their area of expertise) and get back to you. They carry great products, they ship as promised and they stand behind what they sell. I highly recommend eTrailer. 682650

Most excellent products and customer service. I had purchased a few different items from eTrailer and found that there were a couple of missing items. Without question or hesitation, they were in shipping and satisfying my problem. After I got into the project, I found the missing items and notified eTrailer of my error. I cannot say enough good things which describes the excellent customer service, product knowledge and assistance they offer their customers and potential customers.

I choose etrailer for this product as the price was very good, they offer videos to assist with the install and technical advise as needed. I spoke with Brandon who was extremely helpful.

2014 Honda CR-V

This was part of many Roadmaster components I ordered from etrailer.com to set up my 2014 Honda CRV as a toad. Etrailer's website is excellent and their review videos and installation videos are very helpful. Their tech service department is excellent as well. Regarding the Roadmaster Invisibrake, I chose this unit because I did not want anything visible nor any connections to make when setting up to tow or disconnecting. The control unit is hidden under the driver's seat and hardware under the door trim panels. I varied slightly from the etrailer's video in where I mounted the locking clamp and pulley (I did not put the clamp on the raised emergency brake bracket because it was slightly out of line to the pulley that was mounted flush on the floor). Because I choose to route the separate lighting kit wiring on the inside of the vehicle... along the same trim panels and rear trim panels, this made a very convenient place to splice into the wiring next to the Invisibrake control box...nice and protected. The alternative locations of splicing into the lighting wiring harness is under the vehicle....not an ideal place because of road salt, grime and pinch points. I also used the lighting kit with separate bulbs to not interfere with the already installed trailer harness kit for the Honda trailer hitch, nor having to deal with diodes. The Invisibrake works well. I used the extra blue wire in the connecting tow bar wiring harness (7 pin to 6 pin), and the unused brake controller wire in the motorhome that runs to the dash of the motorhome, to operate the signal light. Works great and looks neat. I would recommend that Roadmaster provide some sort of adjustment of the cable at the air cylinder in future generations of this product if possible. This would help on shortening the distance between the mounting clamp and pulley in cases where there is not much room (like in this Honda). Because the only way of taking up the slack now is the combination of the clamp and pulley locations, it somewhat restricts the options on mounting locations and may make some extra work. Regardless of this suggestion, I like the design and initial quality of the Invisibrake and would recommend this unit to anyone wishing to install a supplemental braking system. This does take some pretty good mechanical skills and body contortions to install but if you have that ability...I recommend this unit to the serious do it yourselfer. Otherwise, have a pro install it. 234531

The product arrived within a reasonable amount of time. Instruction for installation was pretty good between both what came with the kit and the video etrailer web site. For the most part the installation went well but there are a few things I would like to comment on, and they are: 1) The self tapping screws to install the control unit to the floor of my towed vehicle were too short to get through the carpeting and into the sheet metal with enough bite to hold. Instead I used longer 1/4 - 20 bolts. 2) The vacuum check valve came apart while I was pushing it into the brake vacuum line. I was able to not lose the rubber membrane inside and used super glue to put it back together. I tested it and is working fine but I did order another check valve to the tune of [a few extra] more dollars. 3) It would have been nice to have the etrailer video show something on where to hook up the "Monitor System" from the towed vehicle. It took some doing but I was able to locate the brake switch and tap into the cold side for the signal. Although I haven't put any miles on this system yet my test of it went well. 426007

A year later and Im still in love with the Roadmaster tow bar & base plate and InvisiBrake braking system. We just got back from a road trip that started around Seattle down to Bryce canyon and back. The tow bar and brake system worked flawlessly, I could not be more pleased. Also, recently I traded in the first Jeep that I installed this system on for a newer Jeep. Knowing that I would be towing the new Jeep as well, I wanted to uninstall the base plate and brake system from my old Jeep and reinstall them on the new. The process went very well, actually faster than the first time I installed it. So, bottom line is that Im very pleased with this set up and would recommend it highly.

Good quality materials. Fast delivery Good price. Complicated install. 16 hours labor for me to install toad portion, including bulb kit. 8 hours to install indicator light/warning beeper in RV. Worth the one time effort for me to not have to set and remove floor mounted brake system each time I want to drive the toad. 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with electric drivers seat. Controller would not fit under drivers seat, installed in cargo area behind rear seat. Good instructions for install. Kit included everything I needed. Due to controller placement, the controller power leads were not long enough. Air line to air cylinder connection was difficult to get right. Was not as "sure" as air line to controller. Took 3 attempts to get it to not leak. Overall a good product, I expect it will last a long time and be very reliable. 234586

Checked my review today as posted. I mistakenly marked 3 stars, meant to mark 4. Only negative was the hard to make connection at the air cylinder.Everything else was top notch.

I couldn't be happier with my Roadmaster. The ease of hooking up and disconnecting, the sturdiness of the device. We are 3/4 timers in the RV and notice NO wear and tear. Fantastic! Worth every penny! 849705

Great product. Makes hookup and disconnect a breeze with nothing to store while you drive your toad. The instructions were good, all wire and tube connections were pretty straight forward. Routing wires and vacuum tube was the challenging part for me. Also had to drill a 1.25" pass through hole with grommet in the firewall. The instructions suggested using an existing hole which my vehicle does not have, 2011 Ford Ranger. It is reliable, your toad battery receives a charge, just plug in and go. 825301

  • Roadmaster Invisbrake #8700 or Blue Ox Patriot II Supplemental Braking Comparison
    The Invisi Brake # RM-8700 and the Blue Ox Patriot II part # BRK2019 are both supplemental brake systems but they are pretty far apart in every other way. The # BRK2016 is a much simpler to install setup that works very well. But you have to install and remove it every time you want to flat tow/drive. For this style though it is the best setup. The Invisibrake requires a one-time in-depth install that will take some time, but once installed it works great. If this is more like what you'd...

  • Supplemental Braking System for Towed Vehicle Travelling Steep Hills
    For an application where steeper inclines will be traveled on the Invisi-Brake # RM-8700 would not be my first choice for a supplemental braking system since the braking pressure when you apply the tow vehicle's brakes will always be the same pressure. Instead I'd recommend the DUO part # SM99251 which is a similar type of system but uses an inertia sensor to detect how hard you are applying the tow vehicle brakes and applies a proportionate amount of braking to the towed vehicle's brakes....

  • How is Invisibrake Powered if 2015 Jeep Wrangler's Battery is Disconnected to Flat Tow
    I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and he said that if you disconnect the battery of your 2015 Jeep Wranger as per flat towing instructions your Jeep will be off, however since the Invisibrake supplemental braking system, # RM-8700, is wired directly to the battery it will still be sending a 12 volt, 2 amp trickle charge to the power the Invisibrake's Battery Protection feature function. I have included a video of the Invisibrake being installed on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler as well as...

  • Will a Trailer Wiring Harness Affect a Flat-Tow Wiring Harness on a 1999 Chevrolet Tracker
    The trailer wiring harness will not be affected by the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System part # RM-8700, the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit part # RM-15267, or the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles part # RM-88400 that you have on your 1999 Chevrolet Tracker.

  • Cannot Adjust Brake Pressure on Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System
    The 20 amp fuse for the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System part # RM-8700 could be installed anywhere on the red power wire that goes from the battery to the InvisiBrake controller but if it was installed correctly then it should be 6" away from the positive terminal on the red wire above. I have attached a photo of this for you. However, with that being said this would not really have an affect on the brake pressure adjustment knob not working correctly. If this is your...

  • Where is the Best Place to Mount the InvisiBrake Controller Box in a 2011 Honda Fit
    The best place to mount the box/controller part of the InvisiBrake # RM-8700 on any vehicle is under the driver's seat if there is space. You can check if there is enough space for the box which is 8-3/4" long x 8-3/4" wide x 2-3/4" tall. If there isn't enough space under a seat then use the dimensions given above to locate a spot that will work for you. You might also consider the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251 which operates the same way as the InvisiBrake but with a controller...

  • Can Roadmaster 8700 InvisiBrake System Make Beeping Noise in Engine Compartment
    The only 2 things the Roadmaster InvisiBrake # RM-8700 has that makes an audible noise is the air compressor and the motorhome monitor that lets you know if the brakes have been activated too long. I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster who confirmed that nothing with their system makes a beeping sound. Since this is the case the Ford service department you went to either doesn't know much about the vehicle or they were just trying to move on to the next customer. I would take your vehicle...

  • What Might Cause Roadmaster Invisi Brake to Prevent Vehicle Brakes from Working
    The most likely reason the install of an Invisi-Brake part # RM-8700 would interfere with the braking of a towed vehicle is an issue with the way the system integrates with the vacuum lines of the vehicle. It's possible the T-fitting adapter that ties into the main vacuum line for the power assist has disconnected. That would be the first place I would check. Is there a loud "air suction" sound that you can hear when the vehicle is running? That would be a dead giveaway for that. It's...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Hyundai Accent GLS Behind RV with Air Brakes
    The Roadmaster InvisiBrake part # RM-8700 has been confirmed to fit your 2012 Hyundai Accent; however it isn't the best system for you since your Tiffin Allergo Breeze has air brakes. The InvisiBrake uses the motorhome's brake lights to trigger the Hyundai's brakes. This can cause false braking and additional wear on the Accent when using the RV's exhaust brake. To prevent this use a system designed specifcally for air brakes like the Air Force One # SM99243. It doesn't use the motorome's...

  • Can Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System be Used with an RV that has Air Brakes
    The Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 can be used on an motorhome that has air brakes. The InvisiBrake does not require an electric brake controller. It connects to your RV and applies the towed vehicle's brakes at the desired setting by receiving signal from the motorhome's brake lights. For a supplemental braking system specifically made for motorhomes with air brakes, the SMI Air Force One # SM99243 is a great system. It connects directly to the RV's airlines...
