And if you look up here on our vehicle you'll see that we have rider racks installed up here and we've already pre-cut our slots where our screws will go. And that way it just has a sleeker finish once we get up top. Looking back at our rack, you'll see that it has a cover right here that has a lock insert where you can get your optional locks for that and for the end of your skewer here. We're going to undo the cover, which is going to expose a couple of Allen keys - or Allen bolts. We'll loosen those up which will drop the bottom plate here so that we can slide it over into our rail system. If you look at the back you'll see another bracket right here, this will also slide into the rail system and we've already loosened that up using your included Allen tool. Also, you'll have a strap on the back to strap in your rear wheel, in addition to the front fork skewer on the front. Let's go ahead and undo the caps. And get this prepped.

Hopkins Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2012 Honda Fit

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. We're going to need to feed them down through the access panel here on the driver's side and come out the bottom.



SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Braking System Installation - 2011 Honda Fit

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.



Rain-X Weatherbeater Wiper Blades Installation - 2013 Honda Fit

Today on our 2013 Honda Fit, we'll show you how to install the Rain-X Weatherbeater Wiper Blades. We'll be using the 28-inch blade on the driver's side, part number RX30228, and the 14-inch blade over on the passenger's side, part number RX30214. 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.



Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Installation - 2011 Honda Fit

Today on our 2011 Honda Fit, we're going to be installing the Road Master Fuse Master fuse bypass, part number RM76511.

So now we're in drive mode. We'll go ahead and flip it into tow mode. 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.

The Roadmaster Deluxe Magnetic Tow Lights, # RM-2100, that you have referenced, uses a 4-Round type connector that is not compatible with a 4-Flat. There is no easy way to adapt the two to work together. The...

  • For starters, you will need a tow bar and base plates. The tow bar mounts into the receiver on your Winnebago, and would use the base plates that permanently attach to the Honda Fit as an attachment point.

I will link you to our video showing this kit being installed on a 2010 Honda Fit. Next, you...

  • Since you plan on carrying a bike rack on your 2009 Honda Fit I would recommend you get the Draw-Tite Hitch, part # 24826. This hitch is very similar to the Draw-Tite hitch, # 60218, that you referenced but it does not include a draw bar and pin and clip so it is priced a little lower. If you only plan on carrying a bike rack I would recommend the # 24826, but if you plan on someday towing a trailer I would recommend you get the # 60218. I attached installation instructions...

  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2015 Honda Fit EX with manual transmission behind a motorhome. There is slight differences between the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521569-4 and EZ5 # RM-521569-5.

  • I did some checking and it looks like the 2014 Hyundai Accent is only flat towable if it is the manual transmission model. The 2014 Honda Fit can be flat towed with either transmission style but it is not recommended to exceed 65 miles per hour.

So that might be the deciding factor. If you were to get a manual...

To carry both of these bikes on your vehicle, you will actually need two different bike racks.
