30 DS pulling a 2 dr Wrangler

We have a 2015 FR3 30DS and plan on pulling a 2006 Jeep Wrangler X. Is there anyone out there with a similar matchup? If so, do you use a supplemental braking system? If so, which one and if not, why not?

Yes I have the same setup. I use the invizabrake system. In most states it's required and I also want to be as safe as possible. Its not t cheap but well worth it.

My vote is the RVIbrake2. Simple and about half the weight and size of other systems. It can be used in another unit if you trade for a newer vehicle. It also only takes about 1/2 second to fully apply. Check out the videos at their website.

No supplemental brake

We have a 2013 FR 317ODS. For the first time I pulled my 04 Jeep Wrangler 2dr on a trip from Oklahoma to Galveston, Texas. I did not have supp. brake and it pulled fantastic, the MH did not even know it was back there. Three cars tangled and wrecked right in front of us at about 2am with just two lanes of traffic. With road completely blocked, I buried the brake pedal and held on. The motorhome came to a short, straight stop with NO problem. I had checked and in Okla. and Texas towed vehicle must have supp brake system if weight exceeds 3000lbs. My Jeeps stated weight is 3100. OK, I cheated by 100lbs. If I were going through areawith steep hills, I would probably get a supp brake system. You can check towing laws on line fir every state

I have a 30DS and pull a 2015 2door Wrangler. Choose the Blue Ox patriot system. To me it was the least intrusive install and the remote lets you see what the brake is doing. I wouldn't tow it without the brake.

We tow a 2015 2 door Wrangler behind a 2016 3010DS. Use the Brake Buddy system. Super satisfied. Easy to set up. No problems encountered.
