Flat Towing Recommendations For A 2014 Jeep Cherokee  


I have a Roadmaster falcon 2 tow bar, and I would like to know what other items I need to flat tow it behind my 2011 Tiffin Allegro Red 36.5-0 motor home.

To flat tow you'll need the following equipment:

Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar for Blue Ox Base Plates - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000lbs
Item # RM-525.

Tow Bar Wiring: Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit Item # RM-154. This is a one time setup and will use your vehicle's lights instead of you having to run magnetic lights to the back of your car every time you want to tow it.

Base Plates: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms Item # RM-521447-5. If you have the Trailhawk you'll need the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521446-4.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System - Proportional Item # HM39524. This system comes with a battery charger to keep your jeep's battery charged while towing.

Safety Cables: Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables with S-Hooks - 42" Long - 5,000lbs - Qty 2 Item # C80151

Note you 2014 Jeep Cherokee must be 4WD in order to flat tow. If it's 2WD you'll have to dolly tow instead. I recommend the Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly with Disc Brakes - Foldable - 4,800lbs Item # DM9713045.

You'll also want to read your vehicle's manual to ensure you follow any other instructions required to flat tow to prevent any damage to your vehicle.
