Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76511

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: 13"


Note: This FuseMaster bypass is not designed to hold an ATM micro fuse. If your vehicle has a micro fuse, you will need to use an ATM mini fuse of the same amperage (not included) to install in the FuseMaster.


Some cars can only be towed if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. If you don't remove this fuse prior to 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 car'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 need to drive your car, just make sure the switch on the bypass is flipped into the "drive" position. When on, the fuse will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the FuseMaster to "tow." 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. This switch must be mounted on a plastic surface that is no thicker than 1/4". Do not mount the switch on a metal surface.


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, 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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Review

All right, today we're going to show you the Roadmaster FuseMaster fuse bypass, part number RM76511. With this part number this is what you get. This is the actual switch itself right here. It has overall length of 14 inches. It has a fuse holder right here. It does not come with the fuse where this end goes into.

You pull out the fuse and that goes here. If you have a mini fuse, you will have to supply the type of ATM fuse that sits in here. This is rated up to 20 amps. Where it goes into your fuse box you get this really handy adapter which will plug into your fuse box and you've got these leads that you're going to place these ends with and slide them onto here. It makes it a lot easier to plug this into your fuse box. Also optional, it has a couple of labels for drive and tow, so you know which way you want to have it switched or when you're driving your vehicle down the road that's tow mode or the white dot depressed.

When you want to be towing behind your RV, that would be tow mode. To install this on your dash board or wherever you do install this, it's going to require a 3/4 inch hole. Then to clamp it in place it has this nut that you thread on. The reason behind this is that some vehicles require a fuse be pulled whilst being towed behind the RV. Basically this lessens the battery drain on the vehicle.

With that that'll finish it for the Roadmaster FuseMaster fuse bypass, part number RM76511.

What I needed to take care battery drain situation. After checking around, etrailer.com price was comparably a good price, but nevertheless, this item is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive for what it is, a plastic switch, fuse holder, wire, and some terminals, with a Roadmaster label. No complaints for etrailer, but the Roadmaster part is just too expensive. I guess I knew that when I ordered it, though. 78665


Comments

Terminals would not stay in place regardless of how they were ed. I modified the terminals by using a mini-fuse tap that worked like a plug. Inserted the supplied terminals into the tap, then secured them with electrical tape. Next, I cut off the wire pig-tail on the tap. The mini-fuse tap actually fits in micro-fuse with a click, and is much more secure than the spades supplied by Roadmaster. For the price, it should have come with plug, instead of having to modify the tiny spade connectors.

Absolutely outrageous price and I have to do the same modification to the connection to the fuse panel using a mini fuse connection. The original design is terrible.

2013 Honda Fit


The install on my 2013 Honda Fit was real difficult. The fuse panel is in an extremely cramped, tight location. It requires a young, slim, supple person to be able to twist around upside-down to be able to even see the fuse panel. ( not Fusemaster's fault ) The Honda fuse is a MICRO, and has the metal tabs on the outside edges of the plastic body. The section of the Fusemaster that fits in the fuse socket just has 2 wires, each with a flat blade on each end of the 2 wires. These blades wouldn't stay in place because there is no plastic section between them, as there is in a fuse. I labored long and hard to fashion a real tiny piece of wood to jam in between the prongs, forcing them to the outside of the fuse socket, where they could remain in contact with the metal part. Fusemaster should develope a series of inter-changeable ends which would mimic the fuse-type being replacing. (MICRO, MINI, etc.) This way it could be pushed right in, just like a fuse, instead of trying to put 2 tiny blades into slots that want to spit them out as soon as you look the other way. Maybe these blades stay put better in a MINI socket, but if you have a Honda, I suggest you pay to have someone else do the install. Would I buy it again? Yes. Would I install it myself in place of a MICRO fuse? No way! 211531

Roadsters product worked well. I did not remove the lower dash part, and just did extreme yoga to remove and install the fuse bypass. This was the worst part. I can't believe that Honda put this fuse block in such a difficult to access location. The rest was simple. Installing the small connectors was a trick, (I also didn't use the fuse connector) but I finally got the connections in the fuse block. Drilled the hole from the outside and installed the switch. The location could have been lower and more to the left as there was a thicket portion of the dash on the back that prevented the lock nut from seating, but the switch is tight and works well. This is absolutely the way to go instead of pulling a fuse on my 2014 Honda CRV! 243910

2014 Honda CR-V


This is a great solution to an aggravating problem of pulling a fuse before towing. First, the fuse, which is miss-identified in the 2014 Honda CR-V driver's manual, is nearly impossible to access. Further, the advice in the driver's manual that if you tow less than 8 hours per day you do not need to remove the fuse, is incorrect. I discovered that only 4-5 hours was enough to kill the battery. Installing the RM76511 bypass seemed, at first, to be a piece of cake. I drilled the 3/4" hole and inserted the switch for a pretty tight fit, then found it impossible to screw on the plastic retainer nut. I accidentally discovered that this portion of the Honda CR-V dash can be unclipped and pulled out so you can easily get to the back of the threated switch and tighten the retainer nut. Had I not discovered this I would have not been able to install the "Drive/Tow" switch. Unless I missed it, there is no mention of this in the video or written instructions. After getting the switch installed the rest of the installation was easy. 271468

Worked well. I did not like the fuse position as it was inaccessible when the bypass was installed so I moved the fuseholder position in the wire nearer to the fusebox end so that I could access it after installation. I watched the etrailer video which was useful but I wanted the switch installed in a blank switch panel rather than down low as shown in the video. I was concerned about the size of the hole to be drilled in the blank switch panel but it worked out well. I use plastic epoxy rather than the supplied nut to hold the switch in place. This also strengthened the drilled out blank switch panel. Only 4 stars because I had to make these mods, but the result is a nice installation using the supplied fuse bypass parts. 201358

Honda CR-V


I love the fuse bypass. I used it in my Honda CRV which requires a fuse to be pulled each time the car is towed, then replaced when you want to use the radio. Once installed, taking out the radio fuse is a simple push of a switch. The only problem I encountered was gettin the two loose ends into the fuse socket, and once there I felt it necessary to jam in some foam to keep them in place. It would help if Roadmaster would connect the leads like an actual fuse. Other than that it works exactly as advertised. 103167


Comments

So right you are. I could not get the two loose ends into the fuse socket. It was designeed for a Mini Fuse not the MICRO fuse in my Honda Fit. Roadmaster need to fix this with an actual fuse-like connector end.

After a lot thought and reading the bad reviews but bought it anyway knowingly. Roadmaster needs to change design especially for the Honda make into mini fuse blank with wires coming out opposite end to fuse bypass hardness.It wasn't easy to install after few tricks finally got it. Shame on Honda knowing you need to pull the accessory fuse to tow,then locate it where takes thirty minutes to remove. Wasn't fun to install bypass fuse but we'll worth it in long run. Thanks to etrailer & staff knowing that you consider the best products for your customers and provide the technical support & videos for us. 172719

I installed the Fusemaster fuse bypass switch on my 2012 Chevy Sonic. Install was a snap. It is mounted on the lower dash to the left of the steering wheel and above the fuse panel. I had to cut the fuse cap off and remove the wire loom to get the plastic nut off the switch. The fusemaster switch will be a great time and effort saver since the DLIS fuse on the Sonic is a pain to remove. 237201

Much more difficult to install than videos indicated, in part due to difficulty accessing fuse location on the CRV. Manufacturer would be wise to configure terminals that connect to fuse block into one easy to plug in connector that mimics a fuse rather than the two terminals that are hard to grip and separately install in a very tight space. Also very dufficult to fully seat the two terminals in the fuse contacts in the fuse block due to right quarters. Concerned that over time the terminals will work loose. A fuse-shaped connector would be the solution. 151825

Product is excellent, how to video was excellent, but, Hondas idea for how to make it impossible to get a fuse out or replaced is a killer. etrailer got the package sent quickly, has a wonderful customer service and their video is very helpful. I did this job in 30 min. If it had not been so difficult to do the fuses, I could have done this in 15 minutes without any problem. etrailer is the best. Thanks 178349

The Road Master FuseMaster was just what I needed. For sure better then climbing under the dash every time I hooked up the car to be towed. I must say once I received it the price seems to be much too high. I check several electronic supply houses and found everything except the pins to replace the existing fuse. It would have cost me under $20 to build it myself. It is however a great time saver. 90580

Product received on time as promised and is now installed. It works as advertised and will use it to bypass the acc fuse on my CRV while towing it behind motor home. Since the CRV has micro fuses in the position the product was to replace, it was very hard to install the ends in the fuse holder. It would have been better if the end used to replace the fuse actually had a fuse attached to it. 206569

Good product, however the prongs that plug onto the fuse block are flimsy. They bend too easy, need to come up with a connector similar to the fuse to plug into the fuse block. the wire loom also could stand to be a few inches longer. I had to mount my switch on the side of the coin tray in my 2011 Honda CR-V towards the steering wheel, 188784

This product though I was able to make work for my application was not the exact match for my vehicle. The connections that take the place of the fuse in the fuse box were not compatible. My CRV has micro fuses and the connection prvided was for mini fuses. However once I got past that problem everything else worked fine. 273696

This product is the perfect solution for the hassle of having to pull a fuse from a vehicle on a regular basis. The only shortcoming I had is the glue on the "Tow" and "Drive" decals. Even though I cleaned the surface with alcohol prior to placing the decals, they would not stick. Everything else works fine. 243832

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


The item was correct and delivered promptly. My only complaint, not the fault of e-Trailer, is it was defective. A spade connector in one of the two fuse holders was out place in the socket. (Buried too deep on the molded rubber) Did not realize it until after it was installed and did not want to tear it out. Will replace fuse holder in lieu of the hassle of sending it back for a replacement. 220760

I have included links to some videos showing how these parts install. Check your owners manual because it looks like a fuse has to be pulled to flat tow your Equinox. To make this...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 GMC Terrain Behind a Motor Home

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Chevy Captiva Behind a Motor Home

Consult your owners manual for additional flat towing information. You will need base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow a vehicle. For base plates you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX3332 that you referenced. For a compatible tow bar I reocmmend the Alpha, #...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2010 Chevy Equinox Behind an RV

Instructions are included and I have also linked them for you here. I have also included...

  • The Roadmaster EZ4 base plates # RM-521567-4 for your 2014 Honda CR-V are compatible with more tow bars and accessories that the EZ5 so I do recommend the EZ4. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. Since ease of hookup is important I recommend the Falcon 2 tow bar # RM-520. Connecting or disconnecting from the vehicle when at a little bit of an angle or on slightly uneven ground is easier with this tow bar compared to models with fewer features. Or,...

  • Will Blue Ox Base Plates Work with Aventa 7335 Tow Bar for a 2013 Chevy Captiva Sport
  • I spoke with my contact at Blue Ox and the older version of the Aventa tow bar is compatible with the base plates, # BX3332 for your 2013 Chevy Captiva Sport. In addition to the tow bar and base plates, you will also need safety cables if you do not already have some, lighting, and supplemental braking. For safety cables you can use # BX88197.

  • 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.

This unit is basically a permanent solution being that it is hardwired into your vehicle.

  • 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...

  • Estimated Installation Time for Blue Ox Base Plates on a 2013 Ford Edge
  • Blue Ox estimates the installation time of base plate kit # BX2628 at 3 hours for an experienced installer. They also add the following comment: The first installation of a particular baseplate, and installation by untrained individuals will likely increase installation time substantially. Base plate kit # BX2628 will fit the 2013 Ford Edge if it does not have adaptive cruise control. Adaptive Cruise Control systems use a radar or laser sensor mounted in the front of vehicle that automatically...

  • How Does the Steering Wheel of a Push Button Start Vehicle Get Unlocked for Flat Towing
  • For your 2011 Ford Edge you want to first consult the owners manual to determine what the flat towing procedure should be and if there are any restrictions. Typically on vehicles with push button starts to get the vehicle to unlock the steering wheel you would need to have the key in the car, and without pressing the brake of the vehicle press the start button.

  • Which Fuse has to be Pulled to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Page 236 of the owners manual for a 2013 Honda CR-V states for extended towing you will need to remove the 7.5 amp accessory radio fuse located in the interior fuse box. This fuse should not be too difficult to pull but if you wanted to use a fuse bypass it is # RM76511. There should not be a problem installing any tow package components under the vehicle. For any wiring you can zip tie it up to an existing wiring harness. Avoid areas that may pinch or burn the wiring.

  • I checked the owners manual for your 2014 Ford Edge and under the recreational towing section there was no mention of needing to pull a fuse. Because of that I would not recommend you install the Roadmaster Fusemaster you have or pull any fuses. To flat tow your vehicle you will need to first start with a base plate kit. If you have adaptive cruise control you would want the part # 524426-1, without adaptive cruise control you would want part # 4408-1. In addition to the base plates,...
