Supplemental brake system for towed CRV

I have a 2014 Honda CRV that I will be towing behind my 40' Country Coach Inspire, and need to use some type of supplemental braking system.

The attached photo shows an air fitting coming out of the rear of the coach, and I was wondering if this may be a hook-up for an air activated braking system.

Can anyone explain what this fitting may be for? I checked under the coach to see where the line went to, and couldn't tell where the line ends. There is no documentation for the fitting.

Any input or advice will be greatly appreciated.

It does look like that fitting is intended for a supplemental air brake system. I just had a new braking system installed on my coach last week to use with my Jeep Wrangler, and the fitting looks very similar to that one. I had mine done at M&G Engineering in Athens, TX, and I think their system is very good. They will ship their system to other parts of the country for installation if you don't live near Texas. Just in case you're interested, here is their website:

Also Roadmaster Brakemaster uses a air connection to the coach similar to that.

That is why I bought a leftover 2014 CRV instead of a 2015

I have an SMI Air Force One with CRV, and the coach connection is similar to your photo. The SMI also has an additional tank mounted back, up line, from the fitting near the rear axle. David Monaco Windsor/ CRV
