Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-154 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM-154. This is the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit. This kit is going to connect your RV's tail brake and turn signal lights to your towed car's lighting system. It is designed to work with 2-Wire and 3-Wire lighting systems. 2-Wire systems also know as combined systems are going to have the stop and turn signals sent along the same wire. 3-Wire systems also know as separate systems are going to have the stop and turn signals sent along different wires. This unit is going to prevent electrical feedback and the damage it can cause to your vehicles electrical components.

With this video we just want to accomplish what the kit includes. So to do that we're going to start here with the (4) Hy-Power Diodes. It's going to be these units right here, these are included. You can see here they're going to have the spade connectors already attached to them, so don't spend too long looking for the connectors. They're going to be attached to the Hy-Power Diodes.

Everything is going to be color coded and the installation instructions are going to walk you through the installation process step by step, so you definitely want to go off the instructions they're very well done. They're very well thought out and detailed. One of the things I really like about the instructions is they have pictures. That always helps me with the installation and they have the wiring diagram right there on the back page. So your going to get the (4) Hy-Power Diodes. You're going to get the necessary connectors for you're installation.

Youre going to get your molded wire electrical cords. These are going to be your four wire systems. You're going to get a six foot cord this is going to be your power wire and your going to get your thirty foot cord. We're going to have the four way flat wire connectors for both the vehicle and RV. Now all connector ends are going to have the nice dust cap on there. That way it's going to protect the connection points simply just held on the head of each connector with a little tether strap and then when you're ready to cover up the connection points you just bring that dust cap over top of the terminals there on the end of the connector.

Now if your RV has a 3-Wire system and is not already wired for a trailer connector. A converter is required you can find that, the part number RM-732 that item is sold separately. In this little bag right here you're going to get some zip ties that's going to be to secure any excess wires. It's also going to help and keep your wires up and out the way, keep them safe for your installation. You're going to get a ring terminal and that's designed to be used for your ground connection that will need to be made in the process of your installation. When it comes to the maximum amperage for this unit we're looking at eighty-five amps and the max voltage we're looking at twenty-four volts. The installation is fairly simple again, you want to go over the installation instructions. We also have quite a few videos on our website. Installation videos that are vehicle specific. So you might want to check that out to see if your particular vehicle is on there and that will walk you through the process as well. But to sum it up one end of the thirty foot cord is going to need to be mounted at the front of the tow vehicle towards the center. This will be the end, that's going to connect to the four way connector coming from the RV. The other end of the thirty foot cord is going to run to the back of the vehicle and that's going to get connected into the vehicles wiring system near the tail lights. Again, all the necessary connectors are included as well as your (4) Hy-Power Diodes. The head of the connector will need to be cut off and then you just take the appropriate color wires to the appropriate functions and the instructions are going to do a good job at highlighting the importance of that and helping you find those out. Once you have everything connected you can see here we have a smaller bundle of cord, this is going to be our six foot power cord. This is going to connect the RV to the plug at the front of our towed vehicle. So that's included and then you're going to get three feet of wire loom. Sometimes when you run the wires under the vehicle it is thirty feet long so it's going to run under the vehicle on the frame. There's going to be some sharp components or maybe a sharp edge that you have to go over or a sharp hole that you have to go through. We recommend using some of this wire loom to go over the four way wires and just to protect it from those sharp points or those dangerous areas as you run under the vehicle. And then again, you're going to get your zip ties to secure your wires up and out the way. That's going to do it for our review of part number RM-154 this is the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit.

Jeep Wrangler


I used this for a Jeep Wrangler, probably one of the easier applications. etrailer cautions us to ensure the ground is proper, and I can confirm this. While I found the proper wires using voltage, the gound I used had too much resistance to allow for proper functioning. It took several hours to track it down. But no doubt, when the electical system gives what appears to be impossible data, it is always the ground. I hooked to the proper ground and it works like a charm. I do recommend using heat shrink tubing on the spade connectors. Also I mounted the four flat connector to the bumper. Curt brackets do not fit the connectors in this package without serious modifications. 192669

Hard to give a review...Just received the product today, but must say the service, packaging, and price were all great. Installing the RM 154 should not be a problem for me and the great thing is I ordered two kits, one for myself, that I'll install first and so the second one for a friend should be a cake walk install. Both installs will be on GMC Canyon PUs. 211769

Installation was relatively straightforward, and the necessary parts were included in the kit. The installation is not technically difficult, but gaining access to some the wiring was somewhat irritating because of the assembly techniques used in modern vehicles. Be prepared for somewhat tedious digging around to get to the wires, and pull enough slack to work with them. Once again, a few extra plastic automotive fasteners and automotive cable fasteners came in handy. They're available at a decent hardware store or Home Depot-like store. 63823

I received the product and it was exactly what I had ordered, it was easy enough to install by myself. However, the only thing I would caution future buyers on is knowing both your "towed vehicle" and your "tow" vehicle's lighting system. I was a little thrown off by the instructions and how it referred to "combined" and "seperate" light systems. I'm sure if your going to wire your vehicles yourself you'll figure it out as I did. 22587

Ford does recommend starting the car and letting it idle for at least 5 minutes for every 6 hours of flat towing though. You will need to consult the owners manual for full procedures. For a base plate kit you will need the part # RM-524444-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow...

  • Parts Needed To Flat Tow a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • From the information I was able to obtain, the 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited does not require a transmission lube pump to be flat-towed. You will still need to check your owners manual or with your Jeep dealer on flat towing the vehicle. Some vehicles require an axle disconnect, drive line disconnect, or free wheeling hubs in order to be flat towed. To complete your towing setup, you will also need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, wiring or lighting, and a supplemental braking...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4 Behind a Motor Home
  • It all depends on how the truck is equipped. For a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4 you can flat tow it only if it has a 2-speed transfer case that has a Neutral and four-wheel drive (4 (down arrow) setting. I would go to the dealer and flip to that page of the manual and perhaps they have the exact same truck that fits that description (if the one you are looking at does not). To flat tow the truck you would need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking....

  • 4-Way Flat to 7-Way Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation
  • I checked your order notes and it looks like you ordered a Roadmaster Diode kit part # RM-154 so your best solution would be to use the jumper 4-way harness that comes with it and then use the # PK12716 as well.

  • Can a 2015 Ford Fusion Energi be Flat Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • I also checked the owner's manual for the 2015 Ford Fusion Hybrid and Energi models (they share the same owner's manual) and you can flat tow it with all 4 wheels on the ground. Make sure to follow the instructions outlined in the recreational towing section of the manual. The first part you will need is base plates. You can use Blue Ox base plates # BX2646. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. It also includes safety cables. Next you will need lighting. You could...

  • Recommend Base Plate and Tow Bar For 2010 Smart For Two
  • For your 2010 Smart For Two, we have the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit, part # 52285-1, and the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1987. Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox base plate kits feature removable drawbars, so that the base plate kit is less visible when you are not towing the vehicle. Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox base plate kit would be a good option for your 2010 Smart Car. In addition to a base plate kit, you will need a tow bar, safety cables, wiring or lighting, and a supplemental...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • The SMI Air Force One Supplemental Braking System # SM99243 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. You will still need a brake light relay kit # RM-88400 to activate the signal lights and wiring kit like the Roadmaster # RM-154. Or, the TrailerMate wiring kit # TM781118 you referenced is compatible with the SMI Air Force One # SM99202 but not the SMI Stay and Play Duo # SM99251. You may need a stop light switch kit # SM99629, which is designed...

  • Parts Needed To Flat-Tow My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Behind Motor Home
  • To determine if it is acceptable to flat-tow your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will need to check your vehicle owners manual. I did some research and it looks like if your vehicle is 2-wheel drive with the 5-speed automatic you would need a lube pump. If you have a 2-wheel drive with an 8-speed automatic you will also need a lube pump. If you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle you will need to put the transfer case in the neutral position and you would be good. If you do not have a neutral...

  • Parts Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2014 Fiat 500L
  • I pulled up a copy of the owners manual for a 2014 Fiat 500L and found that the manual transmission vehicles are okay to flat tow as long as you put the vehicle in neutral. You need to check your owners manual to double check this. The first component you will need to flat tow your vehicle is a base plate kit. For that I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plates # RM-522014-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental...

  • Parts Needed To Flat Tow 2004 Saturn L300 Behind RV With Blue Ox Rangefinder II Tow Bar
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox and he said the Rangefinder II BX4322 tow bar will not work with Blue Ox removable arm base plates like the # BX3323 for your 2004 Saturn L300 Series. The slot in the removable arm is not deep enough to connect to the Rangefinder II tow bar. You can use the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit, part # 523114-1, on your Saturn along with the Blue Ox Rangefinder II to Roadmaster Bracket Adapter, part # RM-037, you have referenced. This setup will allow you to...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1985 Jeep CJ-7 Wrangler
  • In order to flat tow a vehicle you will need to install base plates first so the tow bar has something to attach to. For a 1985 Jeep CJ-7, you will need to use Blue Ox base plates, # BX88230. These will actually bolt to the bumper. They need to be bolted to a flat surface on the bumper and in most cases, the bumper will need to be modified and reinforced to tow the vehicle. You can then use the Adventurer tow bar, # BX7322 that you referenced. Make sure the base plates are spaced 16...

  • Need Replacement Parts for Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 Supplementary Braking System # RM-9400
  • Flat-towing a vehicle behind a motor home requires several components. Those are a motor home-mount tow bar, a compatible vehicle base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring (to operate the tail lights on the toad) and the supplementary braking system, such as the Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 that you have. The linked article covers each of these in detail. The Roadmaster Second Vehicle Kit you reference, part # RM-98400, includes a complete breakaway kit (wiring harness, cable and switch),...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Behind a Motor Home
  • I am assuming you are talking about a 2005 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) but if not let me know. None of the tow bars that we carry are designed to be used with the tabs on the bumper. You will have to have base plates installed on the Jeep to use a tow bar. You will also want to keep the stock bumper since the base plates are not compatible with aftermarket bumpers. So for a stock double tube or U-channel bumper you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX1120. These base plates are compatible with the...

  • Flat-Towing 2004 Jeep Wrangler Behind 2010 Tiffin Allegro Bus With Hydralift Motorcycle Lift
  • I did some research on the Hydralift site and found that you can flat-tow when using the motorcycle lift. Using an extension in a trailer hitch reduces the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent and I do not recommend that. From the site it appears no extensions are used in the hitch and when the motorcycle is lifted will provide enough clearance to flat-tow, but I cannot find any information about clearance using the Hydralift. The base plates I recommend for your 2004 Wrangler are part...

  • Is the Roadmaster Falcon 5250 Tow Bar Compatible with Base Plates for a 2011 Ford Edge
  • I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and he stated that the Falcon Tow Bar 5250 is compatible with the XL Base Plates, # 4408-1, for the 2011 Ford Edge. Please note that the base plates will only work if the vehicle DOES NOT have adaptive cruise control. Adaptive cruise control uses a forward facing radar that detects vehicles in front of you and adjusts the cruise control speed so that the Edge remains at a safe distance from the vehicle in front. If the vehicle does have adaptive...

  • Light Kit to Flat Tow a 2015 Ford F-150 Behind a Motor Home
  • For your 2015 Ford F-150 you can use 4-diode kit # RM-154. This is a more permanent installation that does require tapping into the vehicle wiring. For a more temporary solution you could use a magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A but you would need to also use tow light partners # TLP01 because of the aluminum used in the 2015 Ford F-150s.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2009 Smart fortwo Passion
  • The first thing you will want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine the proper towing procedure of the vehicle. From the research I did, the car should be flat towable as is but you will still want to confirm by checking the owners manual. For the 2009 Smart fortwo Passion model, there are 2 base plate options. Either kit fits all models of the Smart fortwo so that would include Passion models. First is the Roadmaster EZ kit, # 52285-1. And then we have the Blue Ox...

  • Parts Needed To Flat Tow A 2004 Honda Civic Behind Motorhome
  • To flat tow your 2004 Honda Civic you will need vehicle specific base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, a supplemental braking system, tow wiring for your Civic, and a wiring extension. For base plates, I recommend a Blue Ox Base Plate Kit. If your Civic is a Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2236. If your Civic is a standard model, not SI, SIR, or Hybrid, you will want to use # BX2234. I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 to use with the Blue Ox baseplates. The Alpha tow...

  • Can the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan be Towed with the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2000-1
  • Yes, it is required that the steering wheel is locked when towing with the RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes, item # RM-2000-1. The instructions state that the steering wheel must be locked or otherwise secured when towing. Failure to lock the steering wheel will allow the towed vehicle to pivot on the bed, causing it to hit the fender and wheel assemblies of the dolly. Severe damage will occur if the steering wheel is not locked. If your vehicle owners manual says not to tow...

Shims should not be required. Both kits come with all of the necessary hardware required for installation. In addition to the base plates you will also need a compatible tow bar.
