2005 Chevy Silverado duramax pulling 38' 5er
I would not want to be without this, it's like cruise control for those long steep downhill grades.
Also a great thing on manual mode when pulling on the level.
The local Chevy dealer did the install, which only took a couple of hours including testing (also included install of the Banks tuner).

This braking system does what they advertise it to do. I used it for the first time 11/23/10 on the Tehachipi pass to Bakersfield. I set my cruise and the speed brake at 57 and it never broke the pace. I use the Low setting for everyday country and city driving and I don't have to use the brakes except for the 15 mph cut out speed. In Feb. I will give it the ultimate test when I go down the four mile 9% grade out of Death Valley. I am anxious for Banks to complete the IQ with a navigation and media access. It is frustrating having to use two screens to view them at this time. 2008 GMC LMM towing a Montana 2955 fifth wheel.
