Readystop / Ready Brake Question

I'm setting up my new to me 08 Jeep Wrangler to tow. I've ordered the Readybrute Elite towbar combined with the Readybrake system. I also want to install the Readystop breakaway system and wondering the following:

Both the surge brake and breakaway installation instructions talk about attaching cables to the brake pedal. IF you have both systems, do you attach two cables to the brake pedal? Do you have to route 2 cables through the firewall etc? or is there a way the breakaway system uses the same cable as the surge brake?

Your help is much appreciated.

Hey, there is a discussion going on over at Towing

I just bought this setup about a month ago. So the answer to your questions are Yes and Yes. Its redundancy. If your toad breaks away from your motorhome then what's going to stop it from running into another vehicle? The holes are 3/16 of an inch each. I can take a picture if you want to see. Just let me know.
