Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 2006 H3 Hummer


can I tow my H3 with the 31270 hitch?


Expert Reply:

If you are looking to flat tow your 2006 Hummer H3 you are going to need several components that we offer, but a front mount hitch is not designed to be flat towed with.

Instead, you will want a base plate kit like our Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 2505-1. This will provide the attachment point for your vehicle so that it can be towed.

Next, you will need a set of tow bars. I recommend the Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar # RM-576, this tow bar comes with safety cables, lighting wiring and quick-disconnects. Check out the review video I attached for this tow bar.

Now for wiring you will want to check out the FAQ article I attached on how to pick out tow bar wiring based on the needs.

And finally, most states now require a supplemental braking system on the vehicle being towed. The easiest to install and use is the Roadmaster Even Brake portable proportional braking system, part # RM-9400. This unit activates the brakes on the vehicle being towed in proportion to how much the RV is braking. This is the safest type of braking action, and it reduces wear and tear on the RV and towed vehicle brakes.

You will also want to check the vehicle owners manual for additional information on flat towing the vehicle. Some vehicles require an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, transmission lube pump, or free wheeling hubs in order to be flat towed
