Today on our 2016 Honda Fit, we're going to be taking look at and installing a Roadmaster Universal high-powered Diode Wiring Kit, part number RM-154.Speaker 2: Here's what the wiring looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. On this particular one, we've put on a 6 round adapter that does not come with the kit but it's mounted to our brackets that are on the base plate this kit allows you to operate the rear lights on your vehicle through the trailer wiring on the RV. The way this kit is set up, it isolates the signal coming from the RV going back to your taillights from the rest of your electrical system on the fit. That way it ensures that your electrical system on the vehicle does not get damaged by a back feed. This kit makes it really easy to hook up your vehicle and have lights so that you don't have to fight with putting any lights on top of your vehicle. You can just plug this in and you're ready to roll. Now, lets show you how to install it.
Today on our 2016 Honda Fit, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Blue Ox base plate kit with removable arms, part number BX2261.

You can just flip this switch. That's somebody that's very convenient if you tow a lot. Now, let's show you how to install it. The fuse that we're going to be replacing with the FuseMaster is going to be that 15-amp fuse right there. I'm going to go ahead and take that out.

This is what the hitch looks like once it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, it still maintains a pretty clean look underneath the vehicle, doesn't really take away from it at all. Here you can also see that it should give us plenty of clearance for any bike racks or cargo carriers that we may want to mount to this, because it comes close but not all the way out to the rear of the bumper. Here we've got the 1/2" hitch pinhole in order to secure anything that we may put into our receiver tube. We've got the flat plate-style safety chain loops with the cutout holes in them.

Today on our 2012 Honda Fit, we're going to be installing the Hopkins Custom Taillight Wiring Kit for towed vehicles, part number HM56302. To begin with, we're going to go ahead and raise the rear hatch of the vehicle, and then we're going to need to open up the access panel, there's one on each side, to gain access to the taillight wiring. Once we have those removed, we can go ahead and lift up the spare tire cover here. We're going to need to remove the rear threshold of the vehicle. To do that, you can take either a trim panel removal tool, or large flat head screwdriver, slide it under the threshold and gently work the threshold upward, releasing the tabs. Once you have the threshold removed, you can go ahead and set that aside for now. Next, we're going to need to take the connectors that have the green and red wires as part of their bundle as well as this is the connectors that have the longer section of wire attached to them.

Today, on this 2011 Honda Fit, we'll be installing the SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo Supplemental Braking System, part number SM99251. This is an automatic proportional brake system that never has to be removed once installed. To use it, you turn on your towing vehicle or RV, and then turn on the SMI system. When you step on the brake in your RV it will activate the brakes in your towed vehicle. We're going to first begin here by raising up the hood of our vehicle. You may notice this vehicle is already had a breaking system installed at one time, so you may that there's a few items that we'll actually be replacing and installing the new SMI parts. In order to begin and gain access to the wiring that's already installed on this vehicle, we're going to need to remove these push fasteners up here that hold the top cover in so that we can get access down and behind the grill. Now, in order to remove those, we're going to use a flat head screwdriver, or a trim panel removal tool. We'll simply slide underneath the edge here in the middle, and then work the center of the fastener out so it comes up like that. Go ahead and remove all these fasteners in the same way.

First we'll need to remove the old or original wiper blades. We'll pick our wiper arm up and find the attachment point at the end of the arm. Our Fit uses the J-hook style connector. To remove the blade, we'll flip up this latch door here, slightly rotate our wiper blade, push it down and away from the J-hook. To install the new blade, we'll fit the J-hook into the opening.

As you can see here, it's killed the radio, so there's no longer power going to that, causing a drain on our battery as we're towing our vehicle.
