Used Tow Bar and Brake Buddy

I found a Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain non-binding two bar with ends for the tow plate, $500 and a Brake Buddy Classic 2 for 300, both in excellent condition. They were new in 2017. Both are flawless in condition and look new. This will be on my Magnitude XG32 F550 and JL Rubicon.

I still have to buy the tow plate, and wiring. The Brake Buddy is missing the battery charger.

I am going to buy a tow plate from etrailer. So what else will I need to be on the road with all four on the ground?

Any advice since I only know what I've read here and on etrailers youtube videos.

Definitely a break away switch, safety chains/cables. Some people run a charging cable from the coach to the toad to keep battery from discharging but we have never needed it. We also had a remote light installed in MH can that letís us know when brake is activated. That way we know it is working when it should and not working when it shouldnít.
