For your tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motor Home Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # RM-520. This tow bar has stainless steel, telescoping arms that automatically lock into place. It has a large hookup radius, so you don't need to be perfectly lined up with your vehicle to connect. This tow bar easily folds up to store on your RV when not in use. For compatible base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521448-4. These removable arm base plates will work great with this tow bar and give you a clean look when not in use. I recommend using Loctite # LT37420 for this installation. For your tow bar, I recommend a hitch lock like # e98882 and safety cables like # RM-643. If you prefer, the Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar - Motor Home Mount - 2" Hitch - 8K # RM-576 is also a fit for these baseplates and has the built in cables.

For your wiring, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 which will use your factory wiring while protecting it and give you more functions from your connection along with a nice coiled connection wire. The 6 way that connects to your baseplates gives a clean look.

For your braking system, I recommend the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System - Proportional # SM99251. This is an installers favorite around here. This system is easy to install and works great. It requires only an initial adjustment at install and then it becomes a plug and play system you don't need to worry about and can just use.

The last thing you need is a high low adapter. To determine your need, I have attached an article for you. I have linked the page to all of your options so you can easily find the product that fits your need.
