It sounds like you are planning on flat-towing your 1993 Geo Tracker behind your motor home. When flat-towing any vehicle there are 5 things that are needed. Base Plates for the towed vehicle, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring for lighting, and most states now require a supplemental brake system.

If you have wired your 1993 Geo Tracker to tow a utility trailer, the Tracker should have a female connector the trailer will plug into. It does not receive a signal from the trailer or any other source. It does exactly the opposite. It sends a signal to the trailer.

In order to be able to receive a signal from the motor home to your Tracker I recommend part # RM-154. This includes the 4-way connector to hook up to your motorhome. This system prevents electrical feedback to protect the electrical system on your vehicle.

If flat-towing is what you have in mind I recommend the Roadmaster Base Plates, part # 118-3. These have removable drawbars so the rest of the system is not visible when you are not towing.

The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Tracker Tow Bar, part # RM-020. For safety cables I recommend part # RM-643.

The lighting is mentioned above and for a supplemental brake system I recommend the Stay-IN-Play DUO part # SM99251.
