Today we are going to show you part number RM-576 from Roadmaster. This is their Sterling All Terrain tow bar. We will be installing this on a 2006 Jeep Liberty. Our Jeep here already has the base plates installed so we are going to concentrate on the tow bar. We have got the parts laid out in the order of assembly. Starting off with these two pieces right here, these are the adapter parts that go to your face plate that is mounted on your vehicle which allows you to connect this cross bar to the base plates and then to this cross bar the sterling all terrain tow bar mounts to it. Start with the brackets that are listed for the driver side and passenger side of a car. This will get mounted up like this and then the bracket for the safety chains is going to get mounted on the bottom like this. Go ahead and bolt up these two halves and put the assembly on to the tow bar bracket. 01:00
Lets line them up and our bolt in. Just make sure the holes are even here and then tighten it down. Use this pin here to hold it in place to keep it reasonably close. We are just going to snug that down. Once we have got everything on the tow bar brackets then we will snug them down for good. Lets go ahead and do the other side now. Lets start off with this plate and our two bolts in. That is going to go into the brackets here and then out to our base plate and we will attach two flat washers and lock washers and nuts. We are intentionally leaving these loose for now. Go ahead and do the same thing over on the passenger side. We are going to next install our cross bar and I left them loose so we could adjust them left and right so the cross bar fits. 02:25
You want to get it to where the cross bar comes off with relative ease and once you have that set you can go ahead and tighten down all of the bolts. Go ahead and tighten these bolts down for good. Use the pin to hold it in place. Once we have these all tightened down we can go ahead and torque them down as specified in the instructions. We have got our cross bar installed, we have our bracket adapters installed. Now we can get ready to hook up the tow bar. We are going to hook up our safety cable first, go through here like so with your bracket. That secures the removal end of the base plate to the frame of the vehicle. Do that on both sides. We will pull up on this lever here to extend one of the arms. And we will just rotate it so we can go ahead and put it into our cross bar. The pin goes from the outside in and lines up with this hole here. Get your snap pin. The blue cables here are actually safety cables and they fit into the lower bracket that we installed. They have a slot on top that they go through and you just follow the track down into place. Of course the other half of our tow bar will get plugged into on our RV. You do not have to be perfectly straight on because you can adjust it left or right. 04:07
When you have your cross bar installed make sure you have your snap pins installed also. That is the basic operation of it lets go ahead and actually hook it up to an RV. We will go ahead and start our install. We will start off by putting the tow bar into the back of the motor home. Put in our pin and clip. One neat thing about this is the self storage feature here as we have got it pulled up and stored all we have to do is take the pressure off and push this tab back and we can start immediately using it. When we are done with it we can put it right back into place. Do the safety cables. Next we will do our electrical. All that remains now is to go ahead and start up the RV, make a couple of left and right turns to pull the arms out and they will lock into position. With that test our tow bar is ready to go with our Jeep and that finishes our install of part number RM-576 from Roadmaster.

Today on this 2002 Jeep Liberty Sport were going to install product number RM-8700 from Roadmaster. This is their InvisiBrake Kit. Alright, first thing we do is figure out where we're going to install pulley and then air cylinder and plus this cable will activate it so we want to keep the bins as little as possible in the cable. So were actually going to hide it underneath the threshold going across here and also by the back seat. So we'll just pop up this threshold here. We're going to lay out our air cylinder in this area right here.
Today on this 2002 Jeep Liberty we are going to install Base Plate from Roadmaster, part number 521423-1 from Roadmaster. What we have done so far is remove the front wheels, now you dont have to do this, but it makes the install a little bit easier to get behind to the fasteners in the wheel well. We are going to start from the top and work our way down. Work at the top of the grill and remove the fasteners to take out the grill and then we will start working on the bumper cover. There are four fasteners on the top, here, here, here, and here will start with. And there will be 6 plastic fasteners we have to remove at the top edge of the bumper cover.
Today on this 2011 Jeep Liberty, we are going to install part number 48955. First off, what we are going to do for our wire harness is find a spot where we are going to locate the 4-pole end. And you can do it anywhere you want. We are going to actually run it to the center on this vehicle right here for now. Put it over this pin. And then we will go ahead and start routing our cable from the front of the vehicle all of the way back. Just stay away from anything moving, like the suspension components, or anything hot, like the exhaust. OK, we will take our ground wire with the ring terminal and we will run it straight to the frame. We will go ahead and show you how we routed our wire. Above the sub-frame there is a piece of tubing that goes all of the way across the suspension. So we actually thread it through from the front to the rear. It is actually easier to see from the back side right here. And then we were able to run it through the frame, using the wire pull. We were able to go all of the way out to the back of the vehicle. We were also able to route it through the back cross member. Our green and brown wires go over to the passenger side of our vehicle. And our yellow and brown wires will go over to the driver side. 1:02
Today we will be installing Roadmaster universal wiring kit, RM-154, on a 2004 Jeep Liberty. Our first step is going to be to mount this small bracket here in the front of the vehicle that we are going to tie the front end off so it will be accessible when attaching to your motor home. This is a self-threading bolt. It may be slightly difficult to get started but once you do it gets much easier. Our bracket is mounted. I am going to zip-tie my front connector off to it and begin the routing of my wire to the rear of the vehicle. You can see our wire coming up over the axle now. We are going to use these two rear mounting holes. We are going to zip-tie off the rear leader going to our taillights. Now that we have our wire feed run to the rear of the vehicle, what we need to do is remove the taillight lenses in order to splice our wire in. The first step is going to be open the rear hatch of the vehicle and remove the ports bit screws so that we can remove the lenses. Alright, now that we have our screws removed, we can pop our taillight lens out. I even like to go ahead and disconnect my hold-down and then go ahead and disconnect the harness so I can set the taillight lens out of the way. Our harness plug has a locking tab that will have to be pushed up. Then press on your tab to remove your harness. I am going to repeat the same steps on the driver side. 1:46
