Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76514

Take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. FuseMaster replaces 2 of your vehicle's ATC/ATO fuses and lets you prep for towing by simply flipping a switch. Integrated holders keep fuses secure and functional.


Features:

  • Bypasses towed car's ATC/ATO blade-style fuses so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing fuses every time you tow
    • Stores fuses so that you won't lose them
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuses from car's battery compartment and install FuseMaster in their place
    • Put fuses into FuseMaster fuse holders
    • Mount bypass switch in center console
  • Maintains functionality of fuse when switched on
    • Flip switch to "Drive" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides fuse when switched off
    • Flip switch to "Tow" position and you're good to tow
  • Application: ATC/ATO blade-style fuses rated at 20 amps
  • Made in the USA


Some cars can be towed only if you get under the hood and pull a fuse or fuses. If you don't remove these fuses 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 fuses indicated in your owner's manual and replace them with the bypass. The system will hold the removed fuses and maintain their functionality. So, once the initial installation is complete, you don't have to remove or replace your fuses 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

This bypass installs inside your vehicle's battery compartment, which is located beneath the rear passenger's-side seat. To mount the FuseMaster switch, route the harness up to your center console. You will have to drill access holes in the console to run the FuseMaster through and to mount the switch.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Switch

Included with the FuseMaster are 2 stickers: "Drive" and "Tow." Once the switch is installed, you can place the stickers on your console - 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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Fuse Bypass Switch for Towed Vehicles Installation - 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2016 Chevrolet Traverse we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch for towed vehicles. Rated for 30 to 50 amp FMX Fuse, part number RM76513. We will be installing this in conjunction with the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass for two fuses rated at 20 amps, part number RM76514. Here's what this fuse bypass looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see it's tucked away here under the hood to where it's not really in the way of anything and it's not going to cause any issues. But what this does is eliminate the need to take the top of this fuse box off and then take out the fuse every single time. But rather you can just come under the hood here, flip the switch when you're ready to tow it, and then when you're done towing you flip it back to drive, and you're ready to go. The fuse that you got to take out of here, the other issues is that sometimes they can be difficult to get out, and from time to time when you take that file fuse out a lot, eventually it might break.

This fuse bypass helps to eliminate that risk. Here's what the dual fuse bypass is going to look like inside the vehicle. As you can see it's tucked away nicely over here on the side of the center console, so when this seat is all the way back it's going to be pretty well hidden over here. What's really nice about this one is it eliminates the need to take up the floor mat and the battery cover to get underneath to pull those fuses every time. Instead you can just lean in here and flip the switch and then you're ready to tow. When the seat's all the way back, it's pretty well hidden where you almost don't see it. Now, let's show you how to install these.

We're going to need to get access into this fuse box, but we're also going to need access under here. In order to get access under this covering here we'll need to pop up these push pin fasteners and you can take a Flathead screwdriver to do that. You just pull the center of that up there, and then the body of that fastener should pop right out. We'll just remove this whole thing, so across the front of the vehicle there's going to be 10 of these fasteners. Up here in both corners, where this weather stripping comes in, there's also going to be this little clip.

You can just use your Flathead screwdriver to pop out. Now we need to get into our fuse box, and there's going to be 3 tabs. Two on the sides here, and 1 on the back side. We just need to push those tabs in, and then they'll release. We'll take it right off there. You need to identify which fuse it is that we're going to be replacing and putting into our FuseMaster.

If you look on here, we'll be looking for battery 1, b-a-t-t-1. It is a 50 amp fuse. Once we've located it on the inside of the lid, on the diagram, go in here, it's gong to be that fuse right there. I'm going to use a pair of channel locks in order to take that out. You can use some other type of pliers too. You just want to get a good grip on it, and gently work it out of there. Now with the key in the vehicle on, we need to use a tough light to figure out which of those two spades is the one that has power coming to it. The one with power coming to it is the one towards the rear of the vehicle. We'll need to remember that when we begin to hook up our fuse holder. Now we're ready to begin installing the fuse bypass. First thing we'll need to do, is out of the small fuse holder that's on this single wire that has the green terminal at the end, we need to remove that 2 amp fuse. I'm going to take this relay out, in order to give myself enough room to be able to drill a hole over here to be able to get my red and blue connectors through. With the hole drilled out there in the side of the fuse box, I'm going to take this loom and cut it off just from this fuse holder out to the end of the connections because this is what's going to be inside the fuse box. That's just going to make it bulky and make it too difficult to go through that hole that I just cut. When you're doing this you want to make sure that you don't accidentally cut one of the wires in there. Then slide it off the end. I'll take my blue and red terminals and slide them in through that hole that I drilled and work them over towards my connection points there. Now that rear spade terminal is the one that's got power coming to it, so we'll be putting our red connector down onto that one and take our blue connector and put it down onto the other one. If you need a little bit of extra room for the other wire, if you need a knife to cut that tape in order to separate them, then you can pull a little bit more wire through for that blue one. To make sure that it's all the way seated down onto that terminal. We'll need to find a good location to mount the ring terminal for our ground wire here. Now if at all possible, you want to try to mount it to an existing ground location that's going to be a really good point for it. If not it does come with a self tapping screw. But on this one it's got this ground terminal right here, so we'll use a 15 millimeter socket. Loosen that, take it off. I removed the existing ring terminal in order to install a slightly larger one. The one I'm installing is part number DW05702-1, in order for it to fit over this ground stud right there. In order to install this onto the ground stud here, I'm just going to put it right behind this plastic, then it'll be able to sit more flush. I'll tighten up that ground post. Now we'll reinstall the 2 amp fuse into the fuse holder on that ground wire. Get it seated all the way and replace our protective weather-tight cap. Now we'll reinstall that 50 amp fuse into the larger fuse holder that's up top here. We'll get that seated all the way down, then put that weather-tight cap back on. Now that we've got it all installed, we can test it to makes you're that it kills the power with the key in the accessory position. Then when we turn it back on the power comes back. Once we've identified that this is working properly, we can make sure that we know which direction is which. Which is tow-mode and which is drive, and then we can put the stickers on in the corresponding locations so that it's easy to identify whenever we're ready to use it in the future. Now that I've got everything installed and everything's working properly, I'll put that relay back in that I removed earlier to give myself room to drill the hole out. Reinstall the fuse box lid, get it clipped down into place there, then we can reinstall the plastic that goes across the top here. Now we just need a good position to put our switch assembly here. I'm just going to trim out some of the underside of this panel here so that it can lean right over there along the inaudible 00:08:47. Then with that back down into place, I can begin re-installing my fasteners. Next we'll be installing this two fuse bypass holder. The fuses that we'll be installing it on are actually on top of the battery in the battery compartment. In order to access that, I need to turn these little locks that hold the second row floor mat down. You can take that, turn it out of the way, and then the battery is under this cover right here. You need to pop the front of this cover up, then you can lift it out towards the passenger side. Now right here on top you can see the two fuse holders we have, we have 15 amp there, and then one more 15 amp right there. Now we can remove these 2 fuses, and both of these are 15 amp, so it won't matter which location you put it in in the bypass holders. Next thing we'll need to do is find a good location in order to mount the switch for our bypass. Not all of these have rear DVD, but this one does. If it doesn't, this is a good place to mount it, but since this one does, I'm actually just going to mount it just over here on the side of this console, so it's going to be tucked between the console and the seat. Now in order to get to that and be able to do that, I need to take a prying tool and I'm going to take this little plastic body panel tool. You can use Flathead screwdriver. But you want to be careful, there's retaining clips that are under here that you'll need to pop out. Now we need to get this cover off right here. In order to do that you can take that same tool, and gently pry it along the side. There's more retaining clips, that are the same style on either side. The easiest thing is just going to be remove the connectors here. There's tabs on them that you just need to squeeze in order to remove them. You want to find a good location in order to drill out your hole through the side here. Since that plastic's a little bit thicker I'm going to start it with a normal drill bit, just as a pilot hole, then I'll use this step drill bit in order to drill it out to the size that I need. With our hole drilled out to the size indicated for our switch here, now we'll need to separate our little connections that are on the back of the switch. It's a good idea to mark some of them so you can make sure that you get them in the direct location so that they match when you put them back on. As you can see, I put a yellow mark on that one and I did the same thing on the black one that's in the same location. They both have yellow marks so I know where I need to put those back at to make sure the switch functions properly. To pull these off, they can be pretty tough to get off, but that means they're not going to come off easily when you've got them connected in the vehicle. But you can use a pair of those pliers to get those off. Now we can put our switch into place through the hole. Then on the inside there, you may need to push that installation back a little bit. But you'll need to get this plastic nut in there in order to thread it onto the back of the switch to secure the switch down to our paneling here. You just want to turn that until it stops turning, you could even reach in there with a pair of pliers, just to make one last little turn so you know that it's secure. We've got our 2 sets of spades here. Each one of these will go down and slide into the connection points. You want to make sure that they're full seated down in there. Same thing for the other one. Then I'll feed these underneath the carpet so that they come out up here. I can pull those through. You want to find the ones that are marked so you can make sure that those get back in the right location, then attach the others after you've found those. You want to make sure that all the insulation right around the back side of that switch is away from it and not touching it. Just because you don't want to risk any accidents or anything with that insulation touch with that switch. Now we can install or two 15 amp fuses into the fuse holders on the FuseMaster bypass. Once you've got them seated all the way down, you can replace the caps. Then we're ready to check and make sure that our switch will properly kill the power at these fuses. If we check this fuse here, we see that we've to power. Flip the switch, and it killed the power going through this fuse, so we know that that switch is working. Now the only thing that we'll need to do with the switch is use the stickers that come with it to mark which is "drive" and which is "tow" mark. So when we flip down it's going to be drive-mode, and when it's flipped up is when it's going to be tow-mode. Now we can reinstall everything. Pop that back into place, and then our little bezel here. Put our battery cover back down. That's going to complete our look at and installation of the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch for towed vehicles rated at 30 to 50 amps for an FMX fuse, part number RM76513. In conjunction with the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass for 2 fuses, rated at 20 amps, part number RM76514 on our 2016 Chevrolet Traverse.

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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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.

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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.

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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

The bypass has worked as advertised. I'm not smart enough to install it myself so I had it done at American RV in Grand Rapids MI. After a short wait, the tech explained how it worked and it has been doing a fine job for over a year. Unable to provide photos. 286630

Good instructions and installation video. This was pretty simple to install. I found a good place just to the left of the steering well on the dash, rather than hidden in the sunglasses storage in the lower dash area as the instructions suggested. 109019

The intent of this button is good. The one thing they do not tell you is that if you have the very small fuses like the 2013 Honda CRV has the prongs that will not work in this fuse box you will have to buy an adaptor. 260504

Product was relatively easy to install and worked as advertised. P.S. I found out from Roadmaster that the ground wire is required because the switch is a relay due to the high amperage. 298115

  • Recommended Components Needed When Flat-Towing 2014 GMC Acadia Behind Motorhome
  • If you are flat-towing your 2014 GMC Acadia behind your 2015 Fleetwood there are 5 things you will need. You will need base plates for the Acadia, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring for the Acadia for lights, and most states now require a supplemental brake system. First I recommend the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit, part # 523149-1. With the hidden brackets, these are virtually invisible when the drawbars are removed. The tow bar I recommend is the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Buick Enclave with Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar
  • Yes, for your 2014 Buick Enclave and your Falcon 2 tow bar you will need base plates # 523149-1. I have linked the instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. There are a few other things needed to flat tow a vehicle if you do not already have them: safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting there are a few options. If you will not be towing...

  • 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...

  • 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. Using the Roadmaster # RM76511 and # RM76512 would allow you to easily and quickly bypass all three fuses with just the flick of a switch. These bypasses are compatible with the ATM mini fuses used by your Malibu. To see install details and an install video, click the links I've provided for you.

  • Fuse Bypass Kit to Bypass 50-Amp and 15-Amp Mini Fuses in 2011 Buick Enclave
  • For your 50-amp fuse you can use Blue Ox ByPass Switch # BX88274 and for your 15-amp mini fuse Blue Ox # BX88272. The Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch # RM76514 that you referenced does provide 2-fuse bypass capability but its amperage rating for both is 20-amps.

  • Trailer Hitch and Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Chevy Traverse

Both of these base plate sets are only compatible with Roadmaster tow bars that fit into a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and thus mount on the motor home. The Falcon tow bars do fit this description. In addition to the base plates and the tow bar you will also need safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow the vehicle. For safety cables you can use # RM-643....

  • Does a Brake Buddy Supplemental Braking System Wire Directly to the Battery on a 2015 GMC Acadia
  • We don't carry the Brake Buddy products so I had to look up the instructions. They actually have 3 different models in their current line up. The Stealth unit does need to connect to the battery. The Vantage and the Classic plug into a 12 volt outlet (cigarette lighter). If your 12 volt power outlets are not active after using the fuse bypasses or pulling the fuses then you would want to install a 12 volt outlet kit # RM-9332.

Base plates can be tricky to install so I have included a link to the instructions so you can see the steps ahead of time. In addition to the tow bar and the base plates you will also need safety cables (if the tow bar did not come with any) # RM-645-76, lighting, and supplemental braking.

  • Can a 4-Diode Tow Bar Wiring Kit be Used on a 2016 Buick Enclave
  • Yes, you can use a 4-diode tow bar wiring kit such as # 38955 on your 2016 Buick Enclave. It also appears that fuses have to be pulled to flat tow your Enclave. Consult the vehicle owner's manual to confirm. To make this process as easy as flipping a switch I recommend fuse bypasses # RM76513 and # RM76514.
