Hi, I am looking for a towing system that i can use on both of my vehciles. I have 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 and a 2003 Dodge Durango. The list of products I think I need is the following: #RM 676 Tow Bar #RM266-3 Base Plate RM-3176-3 Base Plate RM- Diode Wiring Kit RM Safety Cables Besides the braking unit, Have I missed anything else that I will need to tow my vehicles? Thanks in advance

The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-676 will work with both your 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and your 2003 Dodge Durango. You may need to have a High-Low Adapter like # RM-048-4 to level the tow bars. A different adapter may be needed for each vehicle as the bars want to be within 3" of level from your motorhome to the vehicle.

The Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # 266-3 is correct for your Durango.

The Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-3176-3 is correct for your Silverado.

I recommend the RoadMaster Nighthawk All Terrain Towing Combo Kit # RM-9284-2 as this will contain the wiring for one of your vehicles along with locks and storage bag for the accessories. To wire your 2nd vehicle you will need the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-152 and a RoadMaster 6-Wire Trailer Connector # RM-910030-7.

Your Silverado will require that the battery be disconnected while flat towing. A Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch # RM-766 will make the process much easier. Plus you will not have to attach any additional wiring for the brake system you will need.

That is everything you will need besides a supplemental braking system. For that I recommend the Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39524 as it will work with both vehicles. You will need the Dash Mount Connector # HM39342, Breakaway System # HM39340 and Towed Vehicle Battery Charge Kit # BB54FR for the 2ndvehicle. This way you will only need to grab the main unit of the brake buddy to use with the other vehicle.
