The breakaway cable should be secured to the truck at a point separate from the hitch, so that if the hitch rips off the truck, the breakaway cable will activate the breaks on the trailer.

If he's able to haul 26,000 lbs and over, he needs a CDL anyway.

Unless it is being pulled under the "farmer within so many miles" rule, the driver will need a CDL even when empty. If the drive has a CDL, he (or she) will know the rules.

I bought an older home built goose from Texas. Registered it is Louisiana with a VIN number. When the VIN was stamped on the trailer, it became a 2008. This required it have safety chains.

I bought the hangers/weldments and the safety chains from a local trailer manufacturer. I also bought a breakaway kit as well. The hooks for the chains MUST have a spring loaded snap inside the hook. My chains are 3/8".

chains are required if a ball set-up is used....i have a 5th pin set-up on my goose, because i have r-v also, don't need chains, but i still attach to 5th wheel frame in case the state patrol takes a look see while driving next to me... with chains down, chances are they won't stop and look...but it still good idea to hook onto somthing, just for saftey also.

That is correct. 5th wheel trailers (i.e. "king pin") do not require safety chains.

If you have the king pin setup you don't have to use safety chains.

I agree with ericlb and believe it's a nation wide requirement. I know of a lot of gooseneck hitches that were farmer installed that don't have attachment points for safety chains. Most of them just hang the chains down into the bed.
