To all here ....... Since I posted our 1500 mile trip with the Blue Ox Kargard unit, we took a 5,500 mile trip (last week of June through July to August 10th).

We experienced 5,500 + on that trip, and used the KardGard everytime we moved the coach. As mentioned, it got dirty a lot, but no issues ......

Tom,how do you like the patriot brake? We have a new 29mv being built and have to make a call on a brake system for our wrangler.Seems like the patriot is a fairly easy install.......Any help greatly appreciated.

You use to be able to find these rubberized panels with magnetic strips for the various vehicles...

Now it looks like the only thing available are deflector panels like shown here...

Not to hijack your question but take a look at the RViBrake.
RVibrake.com - where passion meets innovation

I have only done a short test drive with ours but it's very easy to setup in the Jeep and based on all the research I did it seems like it's a better setup than the Patriot or Brake Buddy.

I have put about 3000 miles on the toad using the Partriot brake system. No problems so far. It takes a few minutes to install. Like the RVI unit, after installing it, you push the setup button and it calibrates itself. You get a remote unit to put in rv to adjust sensitivity if you need to. The remote will also light a light when the unit is activated. Works fine for me.

Stone guard

I just built one of these stone guards for under $40.00. Works very well.

I bought it directly from their website. I didn't find anyone cheaper that had it in stock when I ordered mine but I didn't look too hard.

Have towed our 2006 Jeep about 7,000 miles behind our old Southwind and now about 5,000 miles behind our 2011 Greyhawk without any rock guard and without any rock chips on the Jeep, so far, so no-guard had paid off real well, so far.
