Default tow car weight

I've had conflicting info. re. need to have breaking system in towed car. Is it 1500 # total weight or 1500# / axle (or 3000# total weight) I'm from California.

Dave,

Everything I find regarding California law specifies 1500 pounds gross towed vehicle weight for the braking requirement. Here is a good site:

but the AAA information is the same...

Default TOAD breaking

I bought the Even Break Roadmaster product and couldn't be happier to have it... When someone stops short or pulls out in front of me I am thrilled to have any and all additional breaking to help...
