Brake Controller

I ordered but have not taken delivery of a 2015 Jaco Melbourne 29D. It comes equiped with a 7 prong plug for towing. My question is when I get ready to tow my Jeep wrangler will I need to do any thing to my RV, like add a brake controller?
Thanks Don

The brake controller needs to be installed on your tow vehicle. I am not sure about towing with a Jeep Wrangler. A 29D might be a bit too much trailer for a Jeep.

The Melbourne 29D is a Class C motorhome. I think he wants his Jeep to be a toad.
