Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be installing the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power diode wiring kit. This is part number RM-154. For our diode wiring kit, we're going to begin our installation by routing this right up to the front where we're going to make our connection with the back of our RV. We're doing this with the fascia off the car at this point just because it's going to make routing so much easier to get in. Keep in mind, when you're doing a diode kit like this, you have to run your wires, or any wires for that matter, any air lines, whatever the case is, get it done while this is off. It's really going to save you some time.

The part number for it is S-A-4-4-1-4-B. Now, first and foremost, a really cool thing about the rack, even with bikes loaded, we're going to be able to tilt this right out and away from our car. Simply pull the safety pin down there at the bottom and then we'll push the grey lever here in the rear and allow that to tilt right down. It's interesting to note and good to note that it's not going to make contact with the ground when you're setting on a level surface, so we'll get full extension of that rack until it's lowered position. Looks like then we'll have all the room we need to get our rear hatch door open here.

Overall, the Kuat does a great job of securing our bike in two ways. We've got a nice heavy duty cable that's going to run from one end over here to the other, connects right in the middle. It allows us to really work it in like we've got it here, through the frame of the bike, through the rim of the bike.



Curt Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox we're taking a look at the CURT premium folding and tilting 4-bike rack. They've designed this so we can use it with 2" hitches. The part number on it is C18064.

Helps to prevent some of that bike movement forward and back, keeping it from hitting other bikes or maybe going up and hitting that mast. Now they're easy to remove.
