Wiring Your Vehicle with TrailerMate

Typically, wiring your car for flat towing is a tremendous chore. You have to position and mount multiple diodes beneath your car and then splice into the car's wiring. Before cutting and splicing, though, you have to use a circuit tester to identify each wire. This must be done for the wires carrying signals from your running lights, brake lights, and both turn signal lights. And don't forget to jump the diodes so that the running light signal is sent to both sides of your car.


Or..you could just plug in the TrailerMate wiring harness. This custom-fit system plugs into your Jeep Wrangler's existing wiring harness, which is located behind your car's tail light assemblies. No cutting, tapping or splicing is required. The wiring around the plugs is encased in durable convoluted tubing, making it easier to handle and safer to route as well.


After plugging in the wiring harness, use the included bracket to mount the 4-way flat connector at the front of your towed car. Then hook up to your RV with the supplied wiring extension, and you're good to tow. Note: The extension included with this system requires that your RV have a 4-wire flat trailer connector. If your RV has a 7-pole round connector, or another type of connector, then an adapter is required.


Do You Need a Brake Light Relay?

Because your Jeep Wrangler has a combined lighting system - wherein the brake signals and the turn signals are carried on a single wire - a brake light relay (RM-88400 - sold separately) may be required if you use a supplemental braking system with your towing setup. A supplemental braking system depresses the brake pedal in your towed car every time you apply the brakes in your RV. So, if your towed car's brake lights illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed and the engine is off - as is the case when towing - then you need to install a relay to ensure that the lights on your towed car always act in accordance with the signals sent by your RV via the wiring harness. Without a relay, the brake signal from your towed car will override the turn signal sent by your RV when you slow down to make turns, creating a potential hazard.


T-Connector Function for Towing a Trailer

When you're not flat towing your car, the TrailerMate wiring harness can remain on your Jeep Wrangler; it will not interfere with the electronics. And if you ever tow a trailer with your car, you'll be wired and ready. The TrailerMate system comes ready to accept 4-flat wiring (TM85330 - sold separately) at the rear of your Jeep Wrangler so that you can hook up a trailer quickly and easily. Just plug in the add-on 4-way trailer connector, and you're good to go.

Etrailer has the best customer service of any company I have dealt with in several years. I received a call from etrailer that the wiring harness was back ordered and the company that made the harness could not give a shipping date. I was offered to change to another harness (Hoskins) but I decided to go with the TrailerMate since I had prior experience with that brand. I was kept informed all through the ordering process and received the wiring harness in about two weeks. The TrailerMate harness is very easy to install and worked perfectly. The instructions are clear and made the installation easy. There are two way to run the wiring from the rear of the vehicle to the front. Since I was installing on a 2014 Jeep Wrangler that will be going off road. I wanted as much protection as possible on the wiring. I opted to run the wiring through the frame rails. The instructions say to use a fish tape and pull the wire. Since I didn’t have a fish tape and didn’t want to buy one for a one time use. I used an old 12 ft metal carpenters tape. There is an opening near the rear where the wire comes from the harness and another near the front driver’s side wheel. Run the tape through the front opening to the rear (you will probably have to giggle it around to get it over the rear part of the frame). At the rear opening pull the tape and fasten the harness wire to the ruler tape and then pull the tape to the front of the frame where to can route the wire to the front connection point. 123105

In general I am very pleased with the product and installation information. Some of the installation information could be more defined. such as were to run the wiring after it come out of the frame rail. The wires that run between the rear tail lights could be about 12 inches longer. I do have a question as well; when I ordered the kit I asked if the harness provided blocking diodes within the harness and was told it did. I have not connected it to my RV yet and wanted confirmation about that? If it doesn't I just wasted 75 Dollars on my purchase because I will then have to modify the circuitry to prevent an electrical problem from occurring! 110596





Comments

The diodes are built-in. If you cut back the plastic wire loom, you can see where the are splice and heat-shrinked in line. Typically, they will be found closed to the tail light connectors.

Great product, no wiring or splicing to do, just plug it in and it worked the first try, It was a little tough routing it through the frame and then feeding it around the engine compartment where it would be safe, cutting the hole near the right tail light required some special tools that some folks might not have? I'm a retired Flight Test Mechanic so this was a piece of cake for me. Sense it's all hidden behind the tail lights and in the frame, photos of the finished job won't show much 93575

Review from a similar TrailerMate Towed Vehicle Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit


Harness is very good quality. The connectors are factory type and make the connections secure. Routing the wire to the front of the vehicle without a lift is a little difficult but doable. The passenger side taillight connection wire was not long enough and I had to re-route the wire through the metal “frame tube” behind the bumper cover not along the existing factory wiring as stated in the directions. I did have to make my own bracket for attaching the connection at the front of the vehicle since I am dolly pulling and not using a front tow bracket. Everything else when as shown in the directions and the video. I would recommend this product and would purchase it again. 73770

Everything works good and as promised. Instructions are good up to the very end, steps 10 and 11 do not describe very well where the bracket for the connector should be installed. The Yuou-tube video also does not follow the instructions. I decided to actually do it in a better location that both have described and everybody commented that mine looked better that any they had send and was very professional. The cable needs to be about 8 inches longer to give some flexibility of installation - - I had to go back and re-do to get every inch pulled forward. Otherwise - great product. 144309

I work for a Drive-Away service and do a lot of towing behind a varied assortment of tow vehicles..The items mentioned in this Email have been performing flawlessly since I purchased them. When several of us go on a big job, I am hooked up and ready to roll while they are still struggling with magnetic lights etc. The job is so much simpler when it is done right.

Excellent wiring harness for my vehicle. Didn't have to cut or splice any wiring and the extra plug for connecting the tail lights to my small trailer when I use that is really a plus. The only negative was most of the zip ties for anchoring the harness were brittle and broke when tightening them. Not serious, but aggravating when I was lying on the ground, under the vehicle, stringing the harness in place. You have excellent support and prompt responses. Thank you. 115321

Easy to install in the rear lights. Worst part was running the electrical to the front of the car. Would have been nice to have a few cable clamps (adel) and self tapping screws included with the kit. Would save alot of time and searching different automotive stores for the parts. I think running the wire to the front took twice as long as doing the wiring on the back end. Instructions were good, and the video on the website was a help. 148520

The product arrived on time. Easy straight forward installation. Hardest part is routing the wiring to front of vehicle. Takes a little bit of time to do a clean job. The supplied harness to go from your tow vehicle to towed vehicle is useless. It is way, way too short for any kind of towbar. The product has nice connectors and is of good quality. Honestly is it somewhat over priced but I found nothing of equal quality for a less price. 116704

Product was easy to install with good instructions My only problem was the short umbilical cord (48") that accompanies the kit. It is too short for a "toad" install. You will probably have it disconnect and you will loose it on the road and have no toad lights. Otherwise, a good product. Strongly suggest you get a longer umbilical cord. 53466

After installing this product myself, I agree that a longer umbilical cord is needed.

This product is the easiest vehicle tow lighting harness I have ever worked with. A couple of years ago I installed a lighting "kit" on my honda pilot. Man what a hassle, I had to install individual diodes for each line using crimp connectors yuck. This complete kit was finished in a couple of hours. If I did this install again It would take about 45 minutes tops. 52745

Very easy and straightforward install. The only caveat is if the Ford Edge is equipped with the Sony Premium soundsystem. The placement of the subwoofer prevents routing the custom taillight connections up to the back of the taillight. An easy fix is to cut the wires near the bottom before the wires route up. Fish them down and reconnect. Piece of cake. 81317

not sure why anyone would cut and splice in diodes ever again, this wireing set installed in less than 30 min, 4 screws to pop the taillights out, plug new wires and run wires to front of the jeep. i did replace the 4 flat with a 6 round on the towed end to keep the battery up, but a prefect fit with factory look and no butt connectors to corrode. 80341

The kit was complete and easy to install. I called customer service to ask where the diodes were located but the agent had no idea and could only say "they are built in". That being the case, the whole loom would have to be replaced should a diode go bad. Still, all the connectors matched the OEM loom and worked as advertised 151730


Comments

The diodes are spliced in the wires underneath the loom, usually some where between 6-12 inches back from the the connectors. Cutting out a bad diode and splicing in a new one could be done, but this harness is covered by a lifetime manufacturers warranty.

This custom fit system plugs into the existing wiring harness located behind the vehicle tail light assemblies. Then just hook up to your RV with the included 4-way connector.

  • The Patriot supplemental braking system # BRK2012 should be compatible with the Trailer Mate wiring harness # TM781124 without the need for any additional wiring. From what I could find, the 2013 Jeep Wrangler does not require a brake light relay or stop light switch in order to use a supplemental braking system. A 12 volt outlet kit # RM-9332 is recommended to power the braking system. I have included a couple of helpful links on flat towing for you.

  • The TrailerMate # TM781124 and the Tow Ready # 118416 can indeed be used together. However, if you are using a supplemental braking system in your Wrangler Unlimited, you will need to install diodes inline with the TrailerMate harness to prevent backfeeding into the RV wiring. In most cases, you will need two diodes like part # RM-690, one on the right turn/brake and one on the left turn/brake circuit, unless you are using a supplemental braking system that requires the RV running lights...

  • Is the Tow Defender Protective Screening # 4750 Compatible with MX Roadmaster Base Plates
  • The Tow Defender Protections Screen part # RM-4750 would work for you as long as you have a Roadmaster tow bar that installs and folds up on the RV. The TrailerMate Tail Light Wiring Harness part # 781124 is not only the cat's meow, some would argue it is also the cat's pajamas. I attached an install video that shows this product being installed on a very similar 2012 Jeep Wrangler as yours. You are definitely on the right track.

  • Lighting and Tow Bar Compatibility for 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Towed Behind Tiffin Allegro RV
  • It sounds like you have a very good handle on what you need. The Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar you referenced is indeed compatible with the # 1429-1 base plate kit. The # 1429-1 base plate is the correct base plate kit for your Wrangler Unlimited, as long as it is NOT equipped with the optional Mopar front skid plate. The # RM-155 bulb and socket kit is recommended by Roadmaster for use in the 2007 Wrangler Unlimited. The bulb will be fairly tight fit. The Blue Ox LED Bulb and Socket...

  • Recommendation for Towing a 2012 Toyota Prius V
  • I do have a solution for your situation, however, at this time there are no custom fit wiring harnesses available for the 2012 Toyota Prius V or a substitute kit. After doing some research on your vehicle, I found that it is not recommended to flat tow the Prius V and a tow dolly must be used. This is most likely why a custom wiring harness is not available. To tow your Prius V, I recommend using the Roadmaster Tow Dolly, part # RM-2000-1. This dolly comes with tail lights, wheel nets...

  • Base Plates and Flat Towing Accessories for 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • For your 2011 Wrangler Unlimited, you could use either the # 1432-1 or the # RM-521448-5 base plate. Either would work with your Jeep, unless you have an aftermarket bumper, brush guard or winch. The # RM-521448-5 base plates would be easier to install and remove, so that would be my recommendation. To complete your flat towing system, you'd also need safety cables, a lighting solution so the Jeep taillights function along with those of the tow vehicle, and a supplemental braking system....
