Will your motorhome and towed vehicle stop safely in an emergency?
The ability to stop quickly is essential for the safe operation of your motorhome and tow vehicle. Workhorse will void your chassis warranty if you tow more than 1,000 pounds without supplemental brakes; Ford stipulates 1,500 pounds. Check with your motor home manufacturer for their towing recommendations.
Are supplemental brakes required in your state or province?
According to the American Automobile Association, most states, plus many Canadian provinces, now require supplemental brakes if the towed weight exceeds 3,000 pounds. If you have questions regarding state, province or local laws, please consult with the appropriate government agency.
