Recommendations for Compatible Flat Towing System on 2019 Chevy Equinox


installing a brakemaster 90000 and brakeaway 8600 into a 2019 equinox? Do I need a separate air compressor to make this system work on a 2000 Rexhall with hydraulic brakes? This system was on a diesel pusher with air brakes.


Expert Reply:

The Roadmaster Brake Master systems can work on a 2019 Chevy Equinox, but only if the motorhome has air brakes. With hydraulic brakes on your 2000 Rexhall, you will instead want a system that is compatible with both your motorhome and Equinox and adding an air compressor to your motorhome will not allow proper braking function.

Instead, I recommend using the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 along with the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751489. This system will work very well with both your motorhome and your 2019 Chevy Equinox. I've attached a video to assist.

For the rest of your system, I recommend the following:

For your baseplates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-523193-5 and the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520. Then for the safety cables I recommend the coiled # RM-643.

For your tow bar wiring, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 along with the charge line kit # RM-156-25. This will utilize your vehicle wiring and protect your electronics.

Finally, you will need a high-low adapter. I've attached a link to assist with determining the correct fit and then I've linked the page to your options to make it easy. If you already have some components and need help with compatibility for your Equinox, let me know.
