Hundreds of thousands of Ford F53 chassis with V10 towing. Can you be more specific about your concerns?

Stopping depends on how close you are to your coaches GCVWR and the type of brakes you have on the towed vehicle. There are brakes on that 4000 lb towed vehicle? Aren't there?

I tow a 04 Ford Ranger with a 07 Seabreeze 8321, would not think of towing without my supplement brake.
