Recommended Supplemental Braking System to Flat Tow a 2019 Fiat 500


I can't make up my mind on a braking system for our towed 2019 Fiat 500. What would you go with?


Expert Reply:

The supplemental braking system I recommend for a 2019 Fiat 500 is the Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System part # SM99251 if the coach has hydraulic brakes or the Air Force One Supplemental Braking System part # SM99243 if the coach has air brakes. The Stay-IN-Play and Air Force One are two of my favorites because they are generally easier to install than most other permanent options. If you will not be installing the system yourself then the easier install means you could potentially be charged less labor by a shop. The Stay-IN-Play and Air Force One both have monitor lights so you can see from the coach when the brakes are being applied in the toad. I have attached a few other parts you might want to consider below as well.

Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit part # 522013-1A
Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-520
RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables part # RM-643
Curt Towed-Vehicle RV Harness part # C58911
Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751455

I have attached a sample install video of the Stay-IN-Play for you as well.
