How AutoFUSE Works

Some towed cars require that you pull a specific ATC or ATO fuse to keep the battery from being drained during towing. This fuse must then be reinserted when you want to drive your car. The TowDaddy AutoFUSE eliminates this procedure by automatically bypassing the fuse when your towed car is hooked up to your RV.


The AutoFUSE control module plugs into your fuse box in place of your ATC or ATO fuse, and it uses the pulled fuse to maintain circuit protection when your vehicle is not being towed. However, when the car is being flat towed, the AutoFUSE bypasses the fuse so that the system acts as though the fuse has been pulled.


If you tow on a regular basis, the AutoFUSE will eliminate the need to open your hood, pull a fuse, and then remember where you put the fuse to reinsert it when you are finished towing. And if you're driving cross-country and must regularly disconnect your towed car to drive around town, the AutoFUSE will save you the hassle of reinserting the fuse every time.


The AutoFUSE also maintains your battery's charge when your vehicle is being towed. This comes in handy for towing applications that use a powered supplemental braking system. AutoFUSE keeps the brake system from draining the towed car's battery.


Installing AutoFUSE

The AutoFUSE installs inside your vehicle's engine compartment. It taps into the trailer connector at the front of your vehicle that plugs into your RV, and it is powered by the RV's electrical system when the towed vehicle is connected to the RV.

Mount the control module inside the engine compartment, on or near the fuse box. Splice the ground and lead wires into the ground and running light wires on the towed car's trailer connector. The module even has an LED indicator light to let you know that it's receiving power.


Fuse

Next, pull the designated fuse and insert it into the fuse holder on the AutoFUSE. Then plug the AutoFUSE into the recently vacated fuse slot.


It's that simple. Now every time you hook up to your RV, turn your towed car's key to the "tow" position, and turn on your RV's tail lights, the AutoFUSE is triggered to bypass the fuse and to charge the towed vehicle's battery.

Review from a similar TowDaddy AutoFUSE Automatic Fuse Disconnect


This product was very easy to instal, worked on the first try which surprised me since nothing ever works the first time for me. It does what it said it would do kill the Ing power when the RV headlights are turned on and it is plugged into the RV. Only on thing it said that if it was working the light would be green but the light is red.... 78457


Comments

I have had this system for a year and have learned that this system works as it should if you follow the mfg. advice, keep you RV head lights on. On this last road trip I stopped for diesel and turned of my head light and did not turn them back on when I started back on the road. In about 2 hours I got the warning that the battery was low this notice came through my brake system. So now the lights go on and stay on for the day. Good system would recommend anytime.

  • Recommended Flat Towing Wiring for 2013 Cadillac SRX
  • Going with a magnetic mounted lamp kit like part # RM-2100 would be one of the least expensive alternatives, and would without a doubt be the easiest to install. It also has the benefit of keeping the RV wiring system completely isolated from the wiring of the SRX. This way, any wiring short circuits that might occur on the RV or the SRX cannot damage the wiring of the other vehicle. If you would prefer a permanently wired system, I would recommend the Tow Daddy # TD10000S. Although...
