You are looking at five primary components for a safe flat towing setup. These are (1) Base Plates (2) Tow Bar (3) Safety Cables (4) an Electrical Wiring solution (5) a Supplemental Braking set-up

My recommendations are:

- Base Plate, # RM77ZR
This is a direct-connect type base plate that will work with multiple Roadmaster tow bar options.

- Tow Bar, # RM-676 (safety cables are included so no additional cost for those)
The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar w/ LED Lights has all the best features and a large hookup radius making it easy to connect and release. Currently one of the best tow bars on the market from any manufacturer.

- Wiring, # RM-154
This connects your RV's tail, brake and turn signal lights to your towed Jeep's lighting system and uses a diode kit prevents electrical feedback.

- Braking, # RM-9160
For air brakes on the motorhome, this the best Roadmaster System for the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee L. It will also require the use of the RoadMaster Stop Light Switch Kit, # RM77RR and the Custom Fit Seat Adapter, # RM49ZR.

We always suggest that you review your vehicle specific Owner's Manual for the manufacture's guidelines to flat towing. Look under "Recreational Towing" as sometimes there are specific things that need to be done for certain trim packages depending on features.

You may or may not need a high/low adapter, it all depends on each combination of motorhome and towed vehicle. I have attached a help article below that explains what this is and walks you through the process of measuring so as discover if needed. The goal is to ensure your tow bar sets at level +/- 3" once installed. Otherwise, there is the possibility of excessive wear on tire and suspension components of your towed vehicle. Additionally, I have linked several other product review and installation videos for added information.
