Quick-Connect On Bumper - What is it?

On the rear of my 2000 Tradewinds is an old quick-connect plug. Coming out of the back and going "somewhere" is what appears to be RG-6 or a similar coax cable. Does anyone have this connector on their rig? Is it "after-market? Any idea what it's for? Thanks!

Are you sure it's RG-6? Those are usually the Air Hookup for a Towed break system.

My idea is the same as Dick's. Can you post a photo? Rook

The quick-release is directly above the trailer hitch next to a decal "max tow load and hitch weight". Your ideas make sense but I would have expected a larger hose, if it is a hose. I use a brake system for the toad which hooks to the mh electrically.

Don't have a picture at the moment but picture a typical quick release with the opening facing you as you look at the bumper from the rear. The "cable" or "hose" or whatever it is then runs from the quick-release toward the front of the coach. I have not yet crawled underneath to try and follow the "cable" to see where it goes from there.

An air applied , toad braking system uses 1/4" plastic air line to supply the toad. Size is a match to coax. Try scratching with your finger nail , if it's plastic , it's for an air system.

I'll do that Skip. If it is an air hose, maybe I can hook my air hose to it and fill my tires rather than connecting all the way at the front of the mh.

If it is for brakes, it will only have air when the brakes are applied.

That pretty much means I don't need to worry/think about it anymore. Thanks again!
