Blue Ox Patriot Proportional Braking System Installation - 2015 Dodge Durango

Today on our 2015 Dodge Durango we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox Patriot Radio Frequency portable proportional Breaking System, part number BRK2012. Here's what the Patriot system looks like when it's installed in your vehicle. As you can see it's clamped on to the break pedal in there, but one thing that's really nice about this one is that this is the only wire that has to come through into the cab. You don't have to tap into vacuum lines and other wires as you do with some other systems that are more permanent on your vehicle, and that also allows you to, if need be all you'd have to do is have a different break away switch and wire and you could switch this to a different vehicle. One difference between this system and other systems that are similar to it out on the market is that this one is compatible with vehicles that have a power break assist where some of the others are not. Another nice feature about this one is that with this right here, if you plug this into a 12-volt outlet that's inside your RV.



Roadmaster Diode Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit Installation - 2015 Dodge Durango

This is about the only part you're going to see is right up here, this connector at the front, which is a full round connector. It's got this nice, spring-loaded cover, and it bolts up onto the base plate. Then the wiring runs back through your rear tail lights in order to send the power from your RV through the wiring in order to give you lights on your vehicle. You've got brake, turn, and turn lights back there when driving your RV. Something that's really nice about this is that it comes with diodes, and what those allow you to do, you mount those just inside where your tail light assemblies are. Those are there in order to help isolate the power coming through this system from your vehicle's electrical system.

You got a little hook on either side for your safety chains, and right here, is where the arms for the base plate with the brackets on the end go into place.

Dodge Durango Questions

  • Your Bearing Buddy instructions are correct. When installing bearing protectors on a trailer hub, you will want to fill the hub with as much grease as possible, so that you do not have to pump all that grease into the hub with the grease gun after installing the bearings and seals. This also helps to prevent pressure build up in the hub and blow out of the seal in the back of the hub. When using a bearing protector you should always use a double lip seal, like part # RG06-020,...

  • If your 2001 Dodge Durango has the factory installed 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper, the port for the brake controller should be located near the emergency brake pedal. I am sending a video link of a brake controller installation on a 2003 Dodge Dakota and at the 45 second mark it shows the location of the brake controller port under the dash that should help you locate the port on your vehicle. You can check the port with a circuit tester to see if one of the pins...

  • If your 2005 Dodge Durango was wired for the factory wiring harness you will be able to use the Multi-Plug T-One Connector Assembly for 7-Way & 4 Pole Trailer Connector, item # 20135, to install a 7-Way and 4-Way connector at the rear of the vehicle. You will find the connector at the rear of the vehicle near the drivers side frame rail above the spare tire. If you do not have the factory installed tow package wiring you will need to use the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring...

  • We have several electric stabilizer options for you to choose from. First, there are the Ultra-Fab Power Twin II Electric Stabilizers, # UF39-941705, UF39-941707 and UF39-941600. Then we have the Ultra-Fab Rear Electric Stabilizer, # UF39-941602. You would need the proper stabilizers based on the width of your trailer frame and the lift height that your trailer will require. Most likely a pair of the # UF39-941600, Electric stabilizers that you referenced, would...

  • The bar you are speaking of is capable of towing up to the tow capacity of the vehicle, if the vehicle is correctly equipped. The receiver you referenced, the CURT Class III part # 13072 can handle 6000 lbs, 600 lb TW. When equipped with a weight distribution system, the receiver can handle 9000 lb towing, 900 lb TW. I did some research on the Durango, and found some references listing the towing capacity at 8950 lbs. Some references state that that figure was only for the...

  • Typically trailer wiring is color coded. The brake circuit is usually a blue wire which travels to each brake magnet, where it is attached to one wire from each brake magnet. The other wire from each brake magnet will ground to the trailer frame. I have attached a drawing that shows how the wiring is typically run for brakes on a trailer. I have also attached a link to trailer wiring diagrams that may help.

  • In my opinion the Curt Hitch part # C13182 would be less visible than the Hidden Hitch part # 87608. If you look at the picture I attached you will see that the Hidden Hitch has a more of the cross tube visible as well as the mounting brackets. The Curt only has the curved cross tube that comes down and is visible. For trailer wiring you would want the Curt Harness part # C56198. For ball mounts I recommend the etrailer Ball Mount Kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts,...

  • Take the loaded trailer out for a few test runs, including a short run on an interstate. Crosswinds and turbulence caused by passing tractor trailers will quickly tell you if trailer sway will be a problem for you. If sway is a problem, properly loading the trailer will go a long way to controlling trailer sway. Make sure the bike is as far forward of the trailer axle as you can get it, because more tongue weight helps eliminate trailer sway. If moving the bike forward is...

  • If you are using a plastic hitch-mount cargo carrier like the Rola Polypropylene Cargo Carrier # 59500 in the 2-inch hitch on your 2012 Dodge Durango exhaust heat can indeed be an issue on long drives and/or in warmer weather. Hitch adapters are available, such as the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender for 2-Inch Trailer Hitches # MT70070 that you referenced. This extender will both move the attachment point for your carrier rearward by 12-1/4-inches and raise its height by 6-1/4-inches....

  • If all you will ever tow with your Durango is a small flat-bed or utility trailer with bare-bones lighting with one stop/turn/running light per side, for example, the standard # C56133 would work for you. If your trailer has additional side marker or clearance lights, or you might have the need to tow a larger trailer with more elaborate lights in the future, you would be better off going with the powered converter, # C56162. Regardless of what you might or might not be...

  • Electric trailer brakes like the etrailer # AKEBRK-35R that you referenced should be selected based on your axle capacity and brake flange mounting pattern. The brake you referenced fits 4-bolt flanges with a 2-7/8-inch hole spacing and is suitable for use on a 3500-lb axle. These brakes fit hub/drums with a 10-inch diameter x 2-1/4-inch width, such as # AKHD-545-35-K. For washers and bolts to mount these brakes use kit # BIK-00; you'll need one kit per wheel. For tang washers...

  • I attached a picture of the Curt Hitch # C13182 installed on a similar 2012 Dodge Durango as yours. You will notice that this hitch hangs below the bumper and does not require any fascia trimming. The factory hitch comes through the rear bumper like you are aware of, whereas this one is below the bumper. I attached installation instructions for this product for you to check out also.

  • We have exactly what you need to equip your Durango to tow a trailer equipped with electric brakes. The T-1 wiring harness you recommended, # 118552 would be installed first. The harness plugs inline with the vehicle tail light wiring harness behind each tail light, with a separate power wire that is ran to the positive battery terminal, as you described. With this particular harness, the power needed for the trailer lights comes directly from the battery, rather than being drawn...

  • Since your 2000 Dodge Durango does not have the tow package wiring installed you will need to install a working 4-way connector, # 118334, first and then install a 4-way to 7-way adapter, # 37185. There is not a connection point for the factory replacement connector, # 42145, that you mentioned. If you need to install the 7-Way and need to have functionality for a brake controller and 12 volt power supply for towing you will need additional wiring and circuit breakers. We have...

  • The towing mirrors we offer for a 2015 Dodge Durango are a universal fit. We do not have a custom fit mirror available for your vehicle. I recommend the K-Source Universal Towing Mirror, part # KS3891. This clips to the lip of your vehicle mirror and features a ratcheting strap that secures the mirror. This mirror adjusts from 4-1/2 to 14 inches tall and 14-1/2 inches wide with a mirror face that measures 7-3/4 x 5-1/8 inches. This mirror has rubber pads on the straps to...

  • At this time we have not had the opportunity to install a front mount hitch on a Dodge Durango, so I do not have a photo to show what the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch, # 65029, looks like when installed.

  • The USA-made Saris Thelma 3 Bike Platform Rack # SA4239B folds up against the back of the vehicle for storage when empty but it does not tilt down when loaded to give you rear cargo area access. For a tilting platform rack for three bikes I suggest the Kuat Transfer # TS03G, shown in the linked video in use on a Durango. For a quality USA-made hanging style rack that does give you full rear cargo area access, even with bikes loaded, you can use Thule's Vertex Swing # TH9031XT...

I have included a link to the installation details and a link to a video showing a typical installation for you to view. The 6-Way square plug is a rarity.
