Toad advice needed

As this thread pertained to towing, I'd like to ask another question that unrelated to the original one. If this violates the normal protocol for advancing a new question, please excuse and advise.
Question: My towed has been behind a gasser for 7 years using the US Gear Unified Tow Brake System . I just made the step to an Allegro Bus :-). What must I do to tow that car (flat) now?

Did you keep the control module? If so, you may or may not need the wiring harness but I'm guessing that Tiffin provided wiring to the area under the dash that leads to the connection plug at the rear of the coach. Maybe a Tiffin owner can help you out as to where the wiring harness might actually be located (my guess would be somewhere around the brake treadle under the dash) if there is one at all.

If you didn't keep the control module, I'm not sure if you'll be able to find one to purchase or not. You may be able to find a used one on ebay or somewhere else. Check THIS VENDOR to see if they still stock the part #TC-6000K --it appears they do but I find that odd.

Even though U.S. Gear no longer makes the original system, they have kept the website up that also includes a page to access all their installation instructions and operating guides, etc. ...go HERE

If you didn't keep the motorhome-mounted parts of your Unified Tow Brake, you may as well start over with a new toad brake system because parts for the UTB are non-existent. And did you keep the tow bar for the CRV as well? That just hooks to the Allegro Bus in the same way it did on the previous coach. The Bus is probably pre-wired for toad car lighting too, but you may need to change or adapter the wire plug-in.


I'd suggest the Air Force One if you get a new toad brake. It's a nice set-up fr a coach with air brakes.
