Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76510

Take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. FuseMaster replaces your vehicle's mini-fuse and lets you prep for towing by simply flipping a switch. Integrated holder keeps fuse secure and functional.


Features:

  • Bypasses towed car's mini-fuse so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing a fuse every time you tow
    • Stores fuse so that you won't lose it
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuse from car's fuse box and install FuseMaster in its place
    • Put fuse into FuseMaster fuse holder
    • Mount bypass switch near fuse box
  • Maintains functionality of mini-fuse when switched on
    • Flip switch to "Drive" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides mini-fuse when switched off
    • Flip switch to "Tow" position and you're good to tow
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: ATM mini-fuse not exceeding 20 amps
  • Harness length: 10"


Some cars can be towed only if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. If you don't remove this fuse before towing, there's a good chance that your battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination.


Roadmaster's FuseMaster makes it easy to prep your vehicle for towing. Simply remove the fuse indicated in your owner's manual and replace it with the bypass. The system will hold the removed fuse and maintain its functionality. So, once the initial installation is complete, you don't have to remove or replace your fuse again.


Whenever you want to drive your car, just make sure the switch on the bypass is flipped into the "Drive" position. When the bypass system is on, the fuse will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the FuseMaster to "Tow." Doing this will render the fuse inactive so that you can flat tow your car without its battery being drained.


Installation

The preferred location for mounting the FuseMaster switch is the access panel inside your vehicle that leads to your fuse box. The switch must be mounted on a plastic surface that is no thicker than 1/4". Do not mount the switch on a metal surface. Drilling is required.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Switch

Included with the FuseMaster are 2 stickers: "Drive" and "Tow." Once the switch is installed, you can place the stickers on the access panel - one on each side of the toggle - to remind you which way the switch must go for each application. Place the "Drive" sticker on the side of the toggle that has the white dot. (To drive your car, the switch must be flipped so that the side with the white dot is depressed.) The "Tow" sticker can then be placed on the opposite side.

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar Wiring?


  • How to Flat Tow a 2015 GMC Terrain
  • According to the online manual for the GMC terrain that I reviewed the vehicle can be flat-towed once a few preparation steps are taken, including removal of fuse 32 to prevent battery drain. I suggest you refer to your owners manual, specifically the section identified in the index as Recreational Towing, just to confirm that your particular Terrain is suitable for flat-towing and to become familiar with the steps necessary. For a base plate kit I would recommend the Roadmaster Base...

  • Recommendation for Supplemental Braking System on 2013 Chevrolet Sonic
  • The continuous power assist braking system or active power assist system works by monitoring your day-to-day braking habits to formulate a normal braking pattern. The system will detect a change in your rate of braking force and your position on the brake pedal and interpret this as an emergency situation. If the system feels that there is not enough pressure being applied to the brakes, it will initiate an override mode and activate the vehicles full braking force. Typically, a supplemental...

  • Fuse Bypass Switches Recommendation For 2015 Chevrolet Malibu
  • To use a fuse bypass for the 3 fuses you need to remove on your 2015 Chevrolet Malibu you will need 2 of the bypass units we offer. I recommend the Roadmaster FuseMaster Bypass, part # RM76511 for one of the 20-amp mini-fuses and part # RM76512 for the other 2 20-amp mini-fuses that have to be removed. As far as mounting, the only indication given for mounting locations is to make the switch accessible. It really is dependent on the vehicle and where you have the room for these...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Chevy Equinox without Adaptive Cruise or Shutters Behind an RV
  • Roadmaster base plates # RM-523184-5 only work with motor home mounted tow bars and will not work with the Stowmaster. These base plates have a different type of connection at the ends of the removable arms that is not compatible with the Stowmaster. What will be required is either different base plates such as # RM-523184-4, which is compatible with the Stowmaster, or a different tow bar such as the Falcon 2, # RM-520. The base plates cost less so I would choose them if cost is an issue. If...

  • Which Accessories are Needed to Flat Tow 2013 Chevy Sonic
  • To safely flat tow your Sonic, you will need the following items: a tow bar, base plates, safety cables, a wiring solution and a supplemental braking system. I would recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar, part # RM-520. The Flacon 2 features quick disconnects and auto-locking arms that allow you to couple to the RV even if the car is not perfectly lined up behind the RV. To provide an attachment point on the vehicle to connect the tow bar, you will need to install a base plate...

  • To flat tow a vehicle behind a motor home you will need 5 items: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates for your 2015 Chevy Sonic you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX1703. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. For a compatible tow bar that comes with safety cables I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. I have included a link to a video review featuring this tow bar for you. For lighting our installers prefer...

  • Can Flat Towing Wiring Harness Be Used With Trailer Towing Harness on 2014 Chevy Equinox
  • Although your existing 4-pole can't be used for flat towing the vehicle, you can indeed still add a plug and play wiring harness for flat towing. The trailer wiring harness would connect inline between the vehicle's wiring harness and the taillight assembly. The flat towing harness would daisy chain into that connection. Instead of the TrailerMate harness, I'd recommend using the Hopkins version, part # HM56108. Over the years, we've found that the Hopkins harness works better with supplemental...

  • Difference Between Standard Brake Controller and Supplemental Braking System Flat Towing Honda CR-V
  • The difference between the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2012 that you referenced and a standard brake controller that sends the signal through the blue wire has to do with how the units work with the different brakes. The Patriot works with hydraulic brakes that are in vehicles and standard brake controllers work with trailers with electric brakes. The Patriot will not work on trailers and standard brake controllers will not work on automobiles. The Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2012 that you referenced...

  • For a 2008 Chevy HHR you will need FuseMaster # RM76510 to bypass the fuse that normally would have to be pulled in order to flat tow the vehicle. Please consult the HHR owners manual to confirm that fuses do in fact have to be pulled to flat tow the car as well as for other important information on flat towing the vehicle. I have included 2 helpful links on flat towing as well as a link to the installation instructions for the FuseMaster.

For your vehicle I would recommend the Hopkins Custom Tow Bar Lighting Kit part # HM56108. This is a custom install kit that would install without any cutting or splicing and would activate your towed vehicle's taillights in conjunction with your tow vehicle's.

  • I have a solution for you, but the Roadmaster EZ-5 Base Plate kits like part # RM-523173-5 can not be used with a Blue Ox tow bar. For your 2014 Chevy Sonic you would want to use the Roadmaser EZ-4 Base Plate kit part # 523173-4 and then use the Roadmaster Tow Bar Adapter # RM-032 to allow you to use it with a Blue Ox tow bar. There are a few other components needed to flat tow your vehicle. You will need to pull a fuse to tow your vehicle so you would want the Roadmaster FuseMaster...

  • Can 2014 GMC Terrain be Safely Driven After Removing Fuse 32 for Flat Towing
  • Fuse 32 inside the in-cab fuse panel on the 2014 GMC Terrain is for the ignition switch. It appears to control a switch related to the key position in the ignition. The vehicle will still start and run but something related to the ignition will not have power if you do so. Therefore it is not recommended to drive without it. You can install a bypass switch # RM76510 to disable power to this fuse rather than having to pull it and put it back in every time. When flat towing the vehicle...

  • Which Fuses Need to Be Removed to Flat Tow 2011 Cadillac SRX
  • According to my Roadmaster representative, there are three fuses, all of which are located in the fuse box under the dash. You'll look for the BCM1, BCM2 and BCM3 fuses, all of which are 15 amps. Roadmaster recommends the # RM76511 (bypasses 1 fuse) and the # RM76512 (bypasses 2 fuses) fuse bypasses. I'll link you to some articles about flat towing. I hope you'll find them helpful.

Then you can say goodbye to the aching back! I have linked a video that shows an installation. The vehicle is different in the video but the process will be similar.

In addition to the tow bar, cables, and base plates, you will also need a lighting solution and supplemental braking if you don't have those things already. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A or for a more permanent solution I recommend diode kit # RM-154 which plugs...

A 12 volt outlet kit # RM-9332 is also recommended because the regular 12 volt outlet on the vehicle will either have no power or not enough power for the braking system when the vehicle is set up in the tow position.

  • What Fuse Needs to Be Pulled on a GMC Terrain to Flat Tow
  • You would still need to deactivate the 32 fuse of your GMC Terrain when flat towing as that is the ignition fuse. You do not want to have your ignition powered up for that long without the vehicle running. Having a charge line run to the battery will help, but you will still run the battery down. The best solution would be to use a bypass like part # RM76510 to turn this circuit off easily instead of having to have the fuse pulled out every time.

Keep in mind that these base plates will only fit models that do not have adaptive cruise control or active air shutters. If it were me I'd choose the XL base plates # 3160-1B because if you ever wanted to add the Guardian rock shield or Tow Defender to protect the front of the vehicle you can with the XL base plates but not the MX base plates.

As you may have read in your vehicle owner's manual to avoid running the battery down while flat towing your 2016 Chevy Equinox you will need to remove fuse 32 from the instrument panel fuse block. You can use a fuse bypass, # RM76510, to make this process as easy as flipping a switch. Removing the fuse also means that the Patriot will not be getting any power if it is plugged into a vehicle...

It will apply the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles. You will not use the brake controller that was used for the tow dolly with any of the braking systems we carry. In...

I have verified this with my contact at Roadmaster. For a non-SS model you would use base plates # 3141-1. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Falcon 2, # RM-520, and safety cables # RM-643. For lighting you can use a magnetic lighting kit # C-ATL20A. Or for a more permanent solution you can use diode kit # RM-154....

  • Can Battery on 2015 GMC Terrain be Charged While Flat Towing it Behind a Motor Home

If you do not then it is possible that there is some feature that could drain the battery while in tow. And of course if you do have to disconnect the battery it would not drain.
