Second Vehicle Kit Recommendation for Brakemaster Braking on Hummer H3  


I purchased a motorhome that is equipped with a Brakemaster proportional braking system and a Falcon All Terrian non-binding towbar. With light sanding, the towbar fits perfectly within the existing tow shackle brackets. I simply remove the bolt from the shackle, the towbar and re the bolt. The shackle brackets are bolted directly to the frame and are intended to pull the vehicle out of sand, dirt, or water if the H3 gets stuck while traveling off-road so they should be able to easily flat tow. I need the parts necessary to connect the air outlet on the motorhome to the tow vehicle and the Brakemaster system. Is the Breakaway kit required or is that an optional device? The towbar has a cable to connect the motor home lights to the tow vehicle and I beleive the H3 is prewired for remote lighting. Please confirm and let me know exactly what I need to complete the package.

You do need to have the breakaway system of the supplemental braking system active. In most cases this is by law too but it's really just a wise choice overall. So you'd need the second vehicle kit for the BrakeMaster kit part # RM-98160.

For lighting/safety cables, locks, and covers for the tow bar we have the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain kit part # RM-9243-1 which comes with all of that as one part number. The diode kit that comes with this allows you to splice into the taillight wiring so that your RV controls the vehicle taillights and does not require drilling into the taillight housings. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.
