Banks Brake on ’03 Chevrolet Silverado

When Kevin Reardon was asked if the Banks Brake he purchased for his ’03  Duramax-powered Silverado (that tows his 37’ 12,000 lb trailer) worked well his response was, “If it didn’t work I wouldn’t be talking to you now! I can tell you first hand that I’ve driven the same downhill without the Banks Brake, and by the time you get to the bottom, you’re almost doing 80 mph. The trailer only has drum brakes, and you can burn those up really quick if you use them hard. It’s a very scary thing!”

“We had our first real test leaving Monument Valley for MOAB with 8% grades and a bunch of ‘S’ curves. I drove it first with just the pickup, and let me tell you, I was worried! So, I purchased the Banks Brake, and off we went with our camper. I did exactly what the instructions said and flipped the switch and it throttled right down and kept a comfortable speed all the way through the downhill stretch. My wife and I were amazed, not just how well it kept our nerves under control but that we bought a product that actually worked the way it was supposed to! No matter the grade we went down it did great. I just can’t say enough about it!”
