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.

Video Transcript for TrailerMate Tow Bar Wiring TM781124 Review

Today we're going to taking a look at the Trailer Mate customer taillight wiring kit for towed vehicles. This product is designed to fit certain years of the Jeep Wrangler. What this does is it lets you connect your RV's tail, brake and turn signals lights to the towed vehicles lighting system. It is going to provide a 4-way flat plug at the front of the Jeep to easily connect it to your motor home. It comes with a dust cap for that plug. That way you can cover up the connection points when a plugs not being used.

This system is designed to plug in quickly and easily. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires. What you'll need to do is locate your connection points. Those are going to be located behind the vehicle's taillights at the rear of the Jeep. Then you'll have 2 sets of connectors to get connected. You'll have this set right here and then you're going to have this set right here.

The plugs on the wiring harness are going to match up perfectly with the ports on the vehicle. They're going to plug in. They're going to snap lock together offering a nice, tight secure fit. We do want to recommend that you use some dielectric grease on all your electrical connections, like the plugs on the vehicle and the 4-pole connector itself. That grease is going to help prevent corrosion.

It is sold separately and if you want some, you can find it right here at etrailer.com. Once you get those connected, you'll need to make your ground connection. That's going to be the white wire with the ring terminal attached to it. You want to get that grounded to a nice clean metal surface. You can do that using one of the included grounding screws or one of the screws you can use for grounding that's provided with the kit. Then you'll need to run the 4-way flat connector to the front of the Jeep per the included instructions.

It's going to walk you through how to get that routed to the front of the vehicle. You can secure any slack or excess wiring that you may have with the included zip ties. They provide a whole bundle there for you. Once you get this towards the front of the vehicle, you can use the included bracket and hardware to get the 4-way flat connector mounted at the front of the jeep and easily accessible when you're ready to connect it to your motor home. This unit's going to help safeguard the towed vehicle's electrical system by preventing overload with the build-in diodes. Additional diodes are required to completely eliminate electrical feedback. Those are sold separately and they're available here at etrailer.com. With this system installed and not connected to the motor home, if your jeep's not connect, you don't have to worry about any interference with the electrical system when the towed vehicle is not hooked up to the RV. There's going to be another connector here on the harness that will be located at the back of the Jeep. This is going to provide a connection point for a 4-pole flat wiring harness. That way you can tow a trailer behind your behind your vehicle when it's not being flat towed by your RV. Again, you can connect a 4-pole flat wiring harness. That's going to be part number TM85330. It is sold separately. It's available here at etrailer.com if you want to pick that up. This is custom designed for your vehicle. It's going to include everything you see here on the table, so you're going to get your wiring harness, your hardware, zip ties, mounting bracket. You're also going to get this 4 flat extension. This is a 4-flat extension loop for easy hookup between the Jeep and the RV. It's also going to come with your detailed installed instructions. Now, brake light relays, those may be required if used with a supplemental breaking system. They're sold separately. You can find them with part number RM-88400 and, again, available here at etrailer.com. This product is covered with a limited lifetime warranty. Please keep in mind that the extension included with this system requires that your RV has a 4-wire flat trailer connector. Now if your RV has a 7-pole round connector or another type of connector, then an adapter is going to be required. That's going to do it for today's look at the Trailer Mate custom taillight wiring kit for towed vehicles.

2014 Jeep Wrangler


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

I received my Jeep wiring harness so that I can tow my Jeep behind my RV when traveling. I was looking for a kit that would plug right in without splicing. I'm 63 years old and when I received the harness I followed the instructions on the install video. It went exactly like the video described. The total time it took me was about an hour and a half. When I was done I checked all the lights and they worked as intended. This wiring system cost a little more then some of the others but as I mentioned I didn't have to splice wires. I left the end out as I'm waiting for my new front bumper to complete the install. 237335

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


Comments

It still works perfect, no problems, I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to tow a vehicle,

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.

This is very easy to install. Ran thru frame on 2012 Jeep Wrangler, however in hindsight I would have gone with separate bulb harness because of my combined brake and turn signal which necessitated installing a brake relay switch. Not so easy to install. Way up under dash. If you have separate brake and turn signals this harness would be a snap. 245827

No drilling, cutting, or splicing required to the vehicle wiring. I have linked a video showing installation for you.

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.

  • Roadmaster InvisiBrake # RM-8700 Used w/ TrailerMate Wiring # TM781124 on 2015 Wrangler Unlimited
  • Yes, the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System, # RM-8700, can be used with the TrailerMate Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit, # TM781124, on 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but you will need to install one-way diodes. Diodes like part # RM-690 will run inline with the TrailerMate harness to prevent backfeed going to the RV wiring. In this case you will need three diodes, one on the left turn/brake, one on the right turn/brake circuit, and one on the running light circuit. Another...

  • Are Extra Diodes Needed to Use InvisiBrake with TrailerMate Harness on 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The TrailerMate wiring harness # TM781124 has diodes that protect the car but will not prevent back feeding to the InvisBrake, # RM-8700. To use the TrailerMate harness and InvisiBrake together you would have to install 3 additional diodes, # RM-690, on the TrailerMate harness between its diodes and where the InvisiBrake ties into the harness. You will need one diode each on the green, yellow, and brown wires. But if you are going through all of that you might as well install diode kit...

  • Can a 2014 Jeep Wrangler with Fab Four Lifestyle Bumper be Flat Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • None of the base plates available for the 2014 Jeep Wrangler or Wrangler Unlimited will fit if the vehicle has an aftermarket bumper. If you want to flat tow the vehicle you are going to need to keep the factory bumper. For the Unlimited the Blue Ox base plates that fit are # BX1126. With these base plates installed you can use any of the following tow bars: Adventurer, # BX7322, rated for 5,000 pounds, does not include safety cables Acclaim, # BX4330, rated for 5,000 pounds, includes...

  • Flat Towing Setup Recommendation for a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Staying under your price point will be pretty difficult as flat towing setups can be a bit pricey, but we definitely have everything you would need to flat tow your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. First you will need to start with a base plate kit to provide the attachment point on the Wrangler for the tow bars to attach to. For that you would want the Roadmaster Base Plate Kit part # RM-521448-4. The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520. The Flacon...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • In order to flat tow a vehicle you want to install a set of base plates on the vehicle. Front hitches are not designed for flat towing behind an RV. For a set of base plates I would recommend the Roadmaster MX Base Plate kit part # 1432-3. Installation instructions attached. The most popular tow bar with this vehicle is the Roadmaster Falcon part # RM-522. This is a great tow bar with non-binding arms to make disconnecting and connecting easy plus it stores on the RV when not in use....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2002 Honda Odyssey Behind a Motor Home
  • In this case the tow bar wiring options for other Honda models are not interchangeable with your 2002 Honda Odyssey. There are still options that are easy to use. If you are looking for something that is easy to install then I recommend a magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A. If you are looking for a more permanent installation then it is going to require splicing into the vehicle wiring and installing diodes using 6-diode kit # 154-792-118158. I have included a link to the installation...

  • 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....

  • Base Plate Kit and Accessories Needed to Tow a 2007 Jeep Wrangler with a Stowmaster 5000 Tow Bar

This kit is compatible with the older Stowmaster 5000 Tow Bar. As long you have a set of car side quick disconnects you are ready to go. If not you can use the RoadMaster Quick Disconnects, # RM-222.

  • Tow Bar Wiring Recommendations for a 2012 Jeep Wrangler
  • There are several lighting options for wiring your 2012 Jeep Wrangler for flat towing. The easiest to install would be a TrailerMate kit part # TM781124 that would install by plugging inline with your vehicle taillights. See install video. Another option is a bulb and socket kit like part # RM-155, this will install by drilling a hole in the taillight assemblies and then installing an additional bulb in the assembly. A diode kit like part # RM-154 will tap into the vehicle wiring...

  • If your RV has a 7-Way blade style trailer connector then you would use # RM-164-7 or # BX88254. But you would need to use the included 4-Way round socket to replace the 4-Way flat on the TrailerMate harness.
