Most people just clip it to the hitch receiver, which normally has slots for safety chain anyway. That works fine as long as the receiver itself doesn't break loose, taking the breakaway line and the toad with it.

The absolute safest way is to connect it to the coach body or chassis independent of the receiver itself.

Would safety chain itself work good?End of breakaway has a small loopy thingy(don't know what it's called )that has spring loaded thingy(notice my technical terms?)  Don't think it would fit on hitch receiver itself. It's small opening on breakaway .Thanks .
