Today on our 2015 GMC Acadia we'll be taking a look at an installing the Fuse Master Fuse Bypass Switch for Towed Vehicles. This is going to be a 30 to 50 amp, FMX fuse, part number RM76513. You will also need another bypass to tow, which is part number RM76514. First thing we're going to have to do is open up the hood and locate the fuse box, which is going to be right here on the driver's side. Now, if you correspond with our owners manual and dingy towing instructions, it's going to tell you that you're going to have to remove the Bat 1, 50 amp fuse that's going to be located here underneath the hood. Now, we'll go ahead and remove the cover and shield up here so we can kind of tuck our ground and everything back underneath here if we can. Once you have all the push pin fasteners removed that go around the shield, you can pull it up and out of the way. This isn't necessary, but it does help out.
Today on our 2015 GMC Arcadia, we'll be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox Radio Frequency Proportional Portable Braking System, part number BRK2012. Now we're ready to tow our vehicle, we'll simply grab our portable proportional braking system, which is going to be that Blue Ox Patriot. We'll simply set it in the vehicle with our seat all the way back, slide the pedal hooks over the brake pedal into position, press the release button so it clamps on, and then ensure that it's as level as possible. We can do that by adjusting the feet on the bottom side. Once we have it level and it's nice and sturdy in there, we can then adjust the seat to meet up with it. Bring it forward and down to where it's even with the Blue Ox, where it just meets up. We'll then take our breakaway plug, insert it into the top, take our 12-volt outlet plug it in so we have constant power. Again remember that if your vehicle is being disconnected completely from a battery you will need to run a separate 12-volt harness. But if you're just running fuse bypasses, find a 12-volt outlet that's still going to work, plug it in, and turn it on.
Today on our 2016 GMC Acadia we're going to take a look at the INNO Square Crossbar Rough Racks. The cross bars are INB117 and the feet are INFR. I have the first one already on our vehicle. I'm going to show you how we install the second one, pretty easy, around our factory rails. We're going to bring in a table. What's on the table here, we have our crossbar.

We're going to review and install part number RN-154 from Road Master. This is a universal high-powered diode wiring kit, and we're going to install it on a 2015 GMC Arcadia. With this part number, this is a part series C. Starting from here, these are our diodes, you get four in the kit, and you get the terminal ends, connect up to your wires. Quick note about the diodes, is that when you add power to the system on a vehicle from the RV, what this does is makes your power comes in, doesn't matter which tab you use, and all this goes out in this direction here, typically towards your tail light. That way, power coming in from the RV doesn't back feed into the rest of the circuits in the car, and maybe potentially cause some problems.
Today on our 2015 GMC Acadia we'll be taking a look at and installing the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms. Part number 523149-1. This is what it will look like once it's fully installed. We'll take our tow brackets, slide them in with the tab down, and rotate them out, that way the angle goes to the outside of the vehicle with the two holes on top, just like so on the other side. The first thing that we're going to do on the installation of our new base plates is go ahead and open up the hood so we gain access to all the fascia and trim hardware. We're going to need to remove this plastic piece here all the way across as well as this whole front bumper section here and disconnect the fog lights once we get down there as well. We'll just come around. You're going to have one here and so on and so forth across, totaling eight push pin fasteners.

I can say with confidence that all of the customer reviews have been very positive, and that you don't need any straps to hold down your wheels there, and that the frame gooks do well enough for now.

To undo your bike rack you're going to go ahead and unscrew all this thumb screws up at the top here. Once you get all those unscrewed , you can go ahead and take this plate off at the top.
