When flat towing your car, you need a braking system that works to get
you on the road quickly and allow you to focus on your family and the
memories you're making. RVibrake Shadow is a permanently installed
brake, always ready and waiting to keep you safe in whatever RVing
adventure awaits. With Tow-Mode Detection, once you install it, you never
have to think about it again.
Get RVibrake Shadow and ride with confidence!
No User Setup:You’re always ready for your next trip
RVers want to get on the road as fast as possible. The last thing you want is a braking system that requires setup and delays your start. Because RVibrake Shadow is a permanently installed braking system with technology called Tow-Mode Detection that recognizes when you’re towing, there is no user setup required. It’s always ready.
One Time Installation:You can install in under 2 hours
Traditionally, permanent installed braking systems take professionals 6-8 hours to install. RVibrake Shadow’s plug and play design allows installation to be achieved by you or an installer in under 2 hours. There is nothing to crimp, solder, or disassemble. Simply make the connections and go!
Built-in Battery Charging:This is not just a trickle charger
All towed vehicles are not created the same. With so many varying types, each one draws different amounts of power on the battery when in tow mode. The built-in battery charger is an on-demand system that not only trickle charges vehicles that have little draw but can charge up to 10 amps when there is a high parasitic drain on the battery when towing.
Instant Feedback:When you need to know how your system is performing
The multi-colored LEDs on RVibrake Shadow give feedback on proper installation and performance. And because the Command Center tablet comes with RVibrake Shadow, you’ll be able to monitor when the brake performs and be alerted instantly of a possible catastrophic hitch failure resulting in a breakaway.
(Not compatible with hydro boost vehicles.)
Brake Detection:It knows when you’re braking
Everything is done through the RVibrake Shadow in the towed vehicle. Because there is no wiring or installation from the motorhome, it is compatible with all RVs as well.
RVibrake Shadow is activated by the same force that draws your chest forward in a braking, called inertia. An accelerometer in the brake measures these changes and knows when to push softer or harder on the brake pedal, keeping your brake pads from having excessive wear.
Terrain sensing software keeps RVibrake Shadow from being more sensitive downhill and less sensitive uphill, giving you accurate braking at all times.
Breakaway SystemThat part about the law
Besides reducing your stopping distances, one of the main reasons to have a braking system for flat towing is a possible breakaway. This is why brake systems are required by law in 49 out of the 50 states and all of Canada. Should you have a catastrophic hitch failure resulting in a breakaway, the breakaway system will activate RVibrake Shadow to bring your towed vehicle to a safe stop.
The RVibrake Shadow system comes with the Command Center
tablet and hub. This system is the epicenter of the RVi product
The Command Center tablet is your device for monitoring your RVibrake Shadow and remote control for choosing settings unique to your setup. Command Center tablet gives you dedicated feedback in a way that a personal device could not if you were on a call or using another app.

We dare you not to smile every time you snap the tablet to it magnetic dash mount.

Fantastic! Quality product, straight forward install, the toughest part was working up the courage to cut the vacuum line of my new truck, but once done, no problem. RVi included all necessary pieces needed. Looking forward to many happy miles exploring.
Straightforward installation and great that the Shadow is permanently installed
RVi was very good at following up on installation questions. Since I had to cut the vacuum hose I wanted to make sure I it was done correctly. RVi sent me a diagram for the Jeep Cherokee on where to make the cut. We also determined I did not need the check valve. In the Cherokee there is not a lot of room to installed the Tee valve so getting it right was necessary.
I also like that all the components are installed in the engine compartment as opposed to under the seat like some other models. I don’t think there is room under the Cherokee seat to install the brake module. We’ll designed.
