X2 I tow a 2012 Focus Automatic, which requires disconnection of the car battery, so I bought a "Jump-start" battery system at Wally-world and belt that into the front seat. It does not seem that the iBrake system is activated that often (only on moderate to hard braking or fairly steep downgrades), so I bet it does not run the battery too much.

We're getting the RVI Brake 2, which the dealer/installer highly recommended. Don't know too much about it, but will post what I find as I use it... Does anyone else have this system and what have you found?
Make sure you weigh your Seneca and your Hummer fully loaded for a trip. Senecas have a 10K hitch and rating however it is vastly more complicated than it would seem. The Seneca has a 28,000# GVWR with a 33,000# GCWR. If you do the math between those numbers you will find that is only 5,000#. The Seneca has an Allison MH 2500 transmission and an ISB 340 Cummins engine. The GCWR is limited by the MH 2500 transmission. You won't be able to fully load your Seneca and still tow - even flat tow your Hummer. If you use common sense and don't go over your GCWR, GVWR or GAWR you will be just fine. Just remember NEVER BACK UP while connected to your toad!
