Can D-Ring Bumper Mount Adapters be Used to Tow a Jeep Wrangler with a Stowmaster Tow Bar

Question:

I have a Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 and now upgrading my Rubicon with a Rock Crawler bumper that has 2 d-rings. Can I still use the Stowmaster by removing the support brace that originally attached the base plates and replacing with RM-035 to connect to D-ring mount?

If the D-ring bumper mounts on the Rock Crawler bumper are 3/4 inches then the Roadmaster adapters, part # RM-035, will work on the bumper. If the mounts are 1 inch then instead part # RM-035-1 is the correct size.

However, neither are compatible with the Roadmaster Stowmaster tow bar. The adapters can only be used with tow bars that are mounted onto the motorhome instead of on the vehicle, like the Falcon 2, part # RM-520.

Question:

Thanks for your quick answer to my original question same subject heading as above. My thought is the Stowmaster will work ball hitch to RV, remove connector brace from Stowmaster to end up with two loose connection arms, add the connectors to each of the loose arms, then terminate the arms on the two d-rings of the jeep. When the jeep disconnects from the tow arm via the d rings, then I need to remove the Stowmaster and store vs having it remain attached to the RV it would drag since it is not mounted. So, if I am okay with Stowmaster being stored when not in use, would the integrity of the tow system work when pulling?

The # RM-035 and # RM-035-1 adapters will not connect directly to the loose arms of the Stowmaster. They aren't made to fit together. The Stowmaster is designed to be used with the crossbar to make the connection to base plates on the vehicle being towed. The adapters are not used with a crossbar. Using it any other way is not recommended by Roadmaster and the integrity of tow bar is definitely compromised.
