Will Portable Braking System Drain Battery on 2021 Jeep Gladiator When Flat Towing


Looking to flat tow my 2021 Jeep Gladiator and want to use a portable braking system. will this drain my Jeep's battery?


Expert Reply:

A portable braking system won't drain the battery in your 2021 Jeep Gladiator so long as you go with a specific system:

- Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39524

The Brake Buddy Select 3 does plug into your Gladiator's 12 volt outlet, however this system is different than others because it comes with a 15 amp charger that will run to the 6-way wiring connector at the front of your Jeep, and when it is plugged into your motorhome's connector, it will constantly provide a charge to your Gladiator's battery.

For that wiring, as well as the rest of the parts to flat tow your 2021 Gladiator, here is what you'll need:

- etrailer Invisible Base Plate Kit # e98948

- etrailer XHD Non-Binding Tow Bar # e94ZR

- Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267

- Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751497
