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.

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

by: Jim D07/13/2016


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

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.

Very easy to install in my gmc 2013 terrain. Took 5 minutes. Hardest part was drilling hole in fuse box cover. I did not have a 3/4" drill bit so has to drill out edges it largest bit I had. Was fine doing this was. Is expensive for what you get, a fuse holder ,switch, plug in and wires? 296135

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

Great help from etrailer representative in getting just the right part! Easily installed by someone who had never heard of the Fusemaster fuse by-pass. ( My son- in- law did the research to find it). Have only used it for a short trip but it worked great! No more having to pull the mini-fuse out of my car (it was difficult to pull out even with a fuse puller) to keep the battery from going dead after five hours of being towed! Just push a button! Looking forward to testing it out on a 2,000 mile trip in the next few weeks. 295242

Very nice. heavy duty. works great. no problems. Towed a car behind RV all around the country. Makes it easy to connect and disconnect on inclines or odd angles. Installing the associated connections to the front of the Chevy Sonic wasn't bad, took about 3 hours; medium screwdriver/drill/wrench skillz needed. I got the associated fuse kill switch also, makes it all look real nice. The folks at etrailer walked me through all the ordering and needs and were very helpful. Highly recommend them and this product. 320184

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

by: John F.04/29/2015


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

by: W. Dore 07/19/2016


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

  • Fuse Bypass to Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Actually, fuse bypass # RM76512 is not recommended for the 2014 Honda CR-V. The correct one is # RM76511. You should only have to pull that one fuse. But you can check your vehicle owners manual to be sure. I have included a link to a video to the right showing how the fuse bypass installs. Fuse bypass # RM76512 is listed for a 2012 - 2014 Chevy Cruze.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 GMC Terrain Behind a Motor Home
  • To tow a vehicle behind a motor home with all wheels on the ground the first step is to consult the vehicle owners manual.

If your model can be flat towed then the first thing you are going to need are base plates on the 2014 GMC Terrain. The base plates provide a proper and secure attachment point for the tow bar. Blue Ox base plates # BX1689 are listed as a fit for all models of the 2014 GMC Terrain. There...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Chevy Captiva Behind a Motor Home
  • I found an online copy of the owners manual for the 2013 Chevy Captiva and in section 10-70 it does indicate that you can flat tow the vehicle (front wheel drive and all wheel drive). 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, #...

  • 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...

  • Can I Flat Tow a 2015 Honda Fit EX with Manual Transmission Behind A Motorhome
  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2015 Honda Fit EX with manual transmission behind a motorhome. There is slight differences between the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521569-4 and EZ5 # RM-521569-5. The main difference is the EZ4 is more universal and will have more fit options. Both will feature Twistlock series brackets that are virtually invisible.

  • Recommended Base Plates, Tow Bar and Accessories for Flat Towing 2012 Honda CR-V
  • I really like the way the removable drawbars of the Blue Ox # BX2258 positively twist and lock into place. They're just as easy to quickly remove. The Blue Ox base plate system for the CR-V just seems more robust to me. As far as which one is more concealed, you can see for yourself by checking out the photo I edited for you. For a Tow Bar, I'd recommend the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365. Blue Ox tow bars are strong, but very easy to use. The tow bar is self aligning, which makes the...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Chevy Malibu Behind an RV
  • It sounds like you are talking about a regular trailer wiring harness used to power trailer lights if your 2014 Chevy Malibu was to tow a trailer. There aren't any tow bar wiring harnesses (to tow the vehicle behind an RV) that require a direct connection to the vehicle battery that I am aware of. The regular trailer wiring harnesses cannot be used as tow bar wiring harnesses. They do not allow power to flow through them backwards. The actual tow bar wiring harnesses available for your...

  • 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...

  • Do Fuses Need to be Pulled When Flat-Towing a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • Yes, you absolutely have to remove the fuse from your 2013 Honda CR-V when flat-towing. One option that will alleviate this process is installing a Roadmaster # RM76511 Fuse Bypass System. This unit is basically a permanent solution being that it is hardwired into your vehicle. There is a rocker switch that you depress when you are either driving which will activate the fuse or towing which will de-activate your fuse. By using this product, you do not have to worry about removing the...

  • Fuse Bypasses Needed to Flat Tow 2014 Chevy Malibu Behind RV
  • Actually, according to the information I found in the owner's manual for the 2014 Chevy Malibu, the number 8, 22 and 24 fuse would need to be pulled.

  • Flat Towing a 2016 Chevy Sonic Behind a Motorhome
  • To flat tow your 2016 Chevrolet Sonic you're going to need several items. For starters, I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 which connects to your RV by your trailer hitch receiver. The arms swivel, making it easier to connect to your Sonic and the Alpha comes with safety cables. Next you'll need the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1703 which is compatible with your Sonic. It's fairly easy to install, with no welding and is barely noticeable when the tabs are removed. For...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2014 Chevy Sonic
  • The base plate kits we currently offer will fit all models of the 2014 Chevy Sonic. I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 base plate kit # 523173-4 because the brackets are nearly invisible once installed. It's a simple installation as no welding is required. Note that trimming of your spoiler, air dam, grill or fascia may be required on some models.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Trailer Lighting and Tail Light Kit for Flat Towing a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Good news, I can help get your 2014 Honda CR-V wired up with tow bar wiring and trailer lighting. I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster who has done this before and told me that you will just need to install the # RM-15267 and the # C56158. The trailer wiring connector has its own plug in the cargo area of your vehicle see image and attached video for install location. The tow bar wiring will need to be run like the attached diagram to your vehicles separate tail light wiring. With...

  • 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. In addition to the base plates you will also need a compatible tow bar. For the Blue Ox base plates the most popular compatible tow bar is the Aventa, # BX7445, which also comes with safety cables....

  • 2015 Honda Fit Fuse Bypass Switch Recommendation
  • I checked with Roadmaster and they recommend both the part # RM76511 and the part # RM76512. The # RM76512 is great because it can kill two circuits at a time. Since you have two circuits in the interior of your vehicle that need to be deactivated plus one under the hood I would recommend both products for you. I attached an install video that shows the # RM76511 installed in a similar Honda Fit as yours

  • 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...

  • 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...
