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.


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.

Video Transcript for TowDaddy Tow Bar Wiring TD704 Review

Today we're going to review part number TD704. This is the Tow Daddy Auto Fuse, automatic fuse disconnect for towed vehicles. This part is designed to fit the regular ATC and ATO fuse size. The application on this is for model year 2000, the newer automobiles that use that ATC or ATO fuse and that require that the fuse be pulled during flat towing. The way you can find that out is just go to your owner's manual of your vehicle. It will tell you if that fuse needs to pulled during flat towing. This part here will bypass your vehicle's fuse so that you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery.

Provides a simple alternative to removing the fuse every time you have to tow. This part, once its installed, will automatically disconnect the fuse when the towed car is hooked up to the RV. It will also maintain the function of the fuse when the towed car's just driven normally. The module right here is an anodized aluminum control module. Resists rust and corrosion. The fuse holder has a nice waterproof lid on it over the fuse holder. It shield the fuse from any moisture.

This part will install permanently inside your engine compartment with this included hardware. There's an LED indicator right here that will confirm the auto fuse is active. This part is made in the USA. Comes with a nice set of detailed instructions. Some cable ties to take up any wire slack, some butt connectors, and screw to mount your module in place. Basically, what you'd do is just identify the fuse on your car that needs to be pulled. And you remove it from the fuse box, put that fuse, install that fuse right here into the inline fuse socket.

Mount your module nearby. Turn your ignition key to the tow position. Then what you'll need to do is use a test light and test the fuse socket that you took the fuse out of. Find out which side is hot that shows power, and which side is cold that shows no power. Then, turn off your ignition. Basically, the purple wire goes to that cold side of the fuse socket.

The red wire the has the fuse in it goes to the hot side. The white wire coming out just needs to be grounded. Then the brown wire which inaudible 00:02:08 can connect this to either your tail light circuit, or you can connect it to a 12-volt auxiliary pin on your 7-way if your vehicle has one. That should do it for the review of part number TD704. This is the Tow Daddy Auto Fuse automatic fuse disconnect for towed vehicles. This one fits the regular ATC and ATO fuse size. .

Review from a similar TowDaddy AutoFUSE in Tow Bar Wiring


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.

  • Battery Disconnect Options for Flat Towed 2014 Chevrolet Spark
  • In your case the better option is the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect for Towed Vehicles # RM-766 since you do not have to pull fuses in your Spark. In that other case the TowDaddy # TD704 would be the better option. The Roadmaster ABD # RM-766 eliminates the hassle of pulling your battery cable. To deliver a trickle charge to the battery via the tail light wire (when the RV lights are on) you can use # RM-156-25.
