Roadmaster Falcon 5052 hitch

I bought a MH and it has a Roadmaster Falcon 5052 hitch on it. I am not sure what I need to tow my stick shift 2001 Mazda B3000 truck (same as a Ranger). I have some questions about the hitch. If any one has a Falcon 5250 hitch who would answer some questions, i'd appreciate it. And if you pull a MAzda B3000 or Ranget truck, that would be wonderful. I am new to this and there is so much to learn.

Boeing Guy, Take a look at this page. There are 2 links per Falcon towbar, owner's manual and install manual. Hope it helps.

I find it quite the payback that Boeing is producing practically all the follow-on UAV platforms which will ultimately render obsolete the JSF.

Basically you need base plates to attach the tow bar to the Mazda. They are available from a number of sources, but the parts are made by Roadmaster to match your truck with the hitch. That gets you hooked up.

In addition, you need to provide wiring to turn on stop/tail/turn lights on the truck while under tow. You can wire in the trucks own lights, or add a auxiliary set. Magnetic mount aux lights are probably the easiest.

Last, you should have an auxiliary (toad) brake that applies the truck brakes when you push on the coach brake pedal. Lot's of products available for that too. Search this forum for 'toad brake' and you should find lots of commentary.
