Custer E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit Review

Today we're going to review part number EZT20B; this is the E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit. We'll go ahead and quickly cover the components. You get two lights. This is your right side, left side light, twenty foot of wire that comes out to a 4-pole connector, and also an additional 4-pole connector in case you need to wire rescue a 00:23 towing vehicle. How these lights hook up. They have these flaps right here; they're designed to be trapped by the hatch on the vehicle being towed. Your hatch closes in on this and your light stays outside, and it's secured.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Malibu

Today on our 2012 Chevy Malibu we'll be installing the Roadmaster Fusemaster Fuse Bypass. Part number RM76511. To begin our install we'll first need to locate the fuse panel on the inside. This will be on the passengers side of the front console. First we'll remove the access panel then we can locate the ignition sensor fuse. This will be on the bottom row. It's a 2-amp fuse.

Tow Bar Wiring Questions and Answers

  • Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation for a 2014 Ford F-150
  • We have exactly what you will need. First you will want the Hopkins Tow Bar Wiring part # HM56000. This will plug in line with your trucks taillights circuits to control them while being flat towed. This harness has a 4-way connector that can easily be converted to a 7-way with a # 47345. You will just need to plug the adapter into the 7-way socket on your tow vehicle and then plug the # HM56000 into it.

  • How is Pilot Wireless Magnetic Tow Light Transmitter Powered
  • The transmitter for Pilot Wireless Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164 gets its power from the tow vehicle side 7-Way trailer connector's 12 volt circuit. So if you were looking at the vehicle side connector where it would plug in it is the pin in the 1 o'clock position. For a 4-Way it would get its power from the running light circuit. The transmitter portion does not use batteries.

  • Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation for a 1999 Toyota 4Runner
  • There aren't any confirmed tow bar wiring fits available for your 1999 Toyota 4Runner currently, but I did attach an FAQ article that details how to pick the best wiring kit for your application. If you were looking for an easily installed an removed kit I would go with a magnetic kit like part # MT70097. Bulb and socket kits like the part # RM-155 could work as well as long as you have room for the bulb in your taillight housing. These kits install by drilling a hole in the taillight...

  • How to Pick Out Tow Bar Wiring for Flat Towing
  • What you are looking for is called tow bar wiring. Wiring your towed vehicle (or dinghy) can be a complicated process. Depending on the wiring method you've chosen, you may have to splice into your car's wiring, drill into your tail light housings or run wiring beneath your car. Because each towed vehicle is different, and each RV (or tow vehicle) is different, it can be somewhat difficult to determine what all you may need for your towing setup. For that reason we created an FAQ article...

  • Is Cable to Connect Motorhome and Flat-Towed Vehicle Included in Diode Kit # 154-792-118158
  • The Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit # 154-792-118158 that you referenced includes all required diodes, connectors and wiring to set up your Honda Fit for flat towing. The longest cable in the kit, the 30-foot flat connector harness, will run from the rear of the Fit up to the front of the car; it should be positioned near the center of the vehicle to avoid being pulled when the motorhome turns. This 4-pole is where the toad and motorhome will connect to each other. I have included links...

  • Fuse Bypasses Needed to Flat Tow 2014 Chevy Malibu Behind RV
  • Actually, according to the information I found in the owner's manual for the 2014 Chevy Malibu, the number 8, 22 and 24 fuse would need to be pulled. Using the Roadmaster # RM76511 and # RM76512 would allow you to easily and quickly bypass all three fuses with just the flick of a switch. These bypasses are compatible with the ATM mini fuses used by your Malibu. To see install details and an install video, click the links I've provided for you.

  • Can a 2004 Ford Focus ZX5 with Automatic Transmission be Flat Towed Behind a Motor Home
  • I checked the owners manual online for a 2004 Ford Focus. Ford says that for front wheel drive models that have the automatic transaxle (transmission) you cannot flat tow it with all 4 wheels on the ground. The drive wheels (front wheels) have to be on a tow dolly, # RM-2000-1 as an example, or the car has to be on a car hauler trailer.

  • Recommended Tow Bar Wiring Kit For 2008 Chevrolet HHR
  • The TrailerMate Tow Bar Wiring, part # TM780039 is designed for the 2008 Chevrolet HHR if it is not an SS model, but we do have other options. I recommend the TowDaddy Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit, part # TD3002SK. You simply plug in the connectors behind the HHR tail lights, attach the ground, and you have a 4-way harness to run up to the front of your vehicle. When flat-towing your HHR you will need to either pull the ATM fuse as the owner's manual states every time or use a fuse...

  • How Could a Fuse Bypass Switch be Tested on a 2006 Chevy HHR For Flat Towing
  • The correct Roadmaster Fuse Bypass Switch is the # RM76510. When activated this will kill the ignition circuit. An easy way to test to see if it is working would be to attempt to start the vehicle. If the switch is working the vehicle shouldn't start. The next test would be to deactivate the switch and see if the vehicle starts then. Basically whatever circuit this product is installed on should be totally dead when it's activated.

  • What Circuit for Trailer Wiring Usually Gets Ran to a License Plate Light
  • The running light circuit of trailer wiring is what usually gets ran to a license plate light. The brown wire of the # TL21RK carries the running light circuit so this would be the correct circuit to use. I attached an FAQ on trailer wiring for you to check out as well.

  • Troubleshooting Tow Bar Wiring, Toad Vehicle Left Turn/Stop Not Functioning
  • It sounds like the problem is the ground of the left stop/turn light you have on your RV. If this circuit has a weak ground or signal it will prevent the toad's taillight from functioning as well. Check the circuit on your tow vehicle for a weak ground or possible shorts and fix as necessary. Once you get the tow vehicle's taillights working again the toad vehicle's should work again. Check all connections between the tow bar lighting and the factory taillight circuits on the tow vehicle...

  • Recommended Tow Bar Wiring For 2015 Ford Explorer
  • We do offer tow bar wiring that is designed to fit the 2015 Ford Explorer. I recommend the Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit, part # 154-792-118158. This kit is designed to work with your 2015 Ford Explorer with the separate lighting system. This kit includes the converter that will adapt an RV 2-wire system to work with the Explorer separate lighting system. I have attached a wiring diagram you can check out. I have also attached a link to an installation video for this kit. It is on a...

  • Battery Life of the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights # NV-5164
  • I spoke with my contact at pilot and they told me that the life of batteries in the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights, part # NV-5164, would depend on the usage. They said if you were to leave the lights on, you could expect to need to replace the batteries after 12 hours of use.

  • Recommendation for a Towing a 2015 Honda Fit with CVT Transmission
  • I did some checking and it looks like the CVT transmission 2015 Honda Fits aren't recommended for flat towing with all 4 wheels down on the ground. You can check with your local Honda dealer or the owners manual for more info on this. A tow dolly like the Roadmaster Tow Dolly part # RM-2000-1 would work well.

  • Tow Bar Wiring/Lighting for a 2015 Chevy Colorado
  • Blue Ox does not have a tow bar wiring/lighting listing for the 2015 Chevy Colorado. They currently only list up to 2012 models. I checked with Roadmaster as well and they also stop at the 2012 model year. What I recommend is to use a magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A since they are not vehicle specific. This is a low cost option that you could use until such a time that other kits become available.

  • Battery is Draining when Flat Towing 2013 Chevy Captiva Behind a Motor Home
  • I checked the vehicle owners manual for the 2013 Chevy Captiva and could not find anything else that would lead to the battery draining. The fuse you are pulling is the right one and if the key is in the correct accessory position then nothing else should be lit up. Make sure that everything is off including the radio and the heat/AC. If you are using a supplemental braking system that requires a connection to the vehicle battery that could be causing the battery drainage, especially...

  • Compatibility of Roadmaster # RM-2100 Magnetic Tow Lights with 2011 Cadillac SRX
  • When the # RM-2100 lamps are installed on your vehicle, they will operate completely independently of the lights on the towed vehicle. As long as your RV has a properly installed 4-pole trailer connector for the magnetic lamps to plug into, all should work just fine. You mentioned that the RV has a 'separate' lighting system, which would use an amber turn signal bulb or have an amber turn signal lens. A properly installed 4-pole will be already converted so the turn signal and brake...

  • Red LED's to Replace Incandescent Bulbs in Blue Ox # BX8869 Bulb and Socket Kit for Flat Towing
  • According to Blue Ox, the taillight assemblies of the 2012 Jeep Liberty are compatible with a bulb and socket taillight kit like the # BX8869. If you wanted to swap the incandescent bulbs out for some 1157-compatible LED's, I'd recommend the Putco # P231157R360. The bulbs are red in color and are sold in a pack of 2. You'll achieve the best illumination if you match the bulb color to the color of the lens. I'll link you to some of our helpful articles about flat towing a vehicle.

  • Tow Bar Wiring for a 2014 Ford Edge Limited
  • The trailer connector at the back of your 2014 Ford Edge Limited is an output only device. Trying to run power through it will not work and can result in damage to the vehicle wiring. We do have a harness that will work well for your 2014 Edge when you flat tow it. The TrailerMate harness # TM782057 will plug in line with the vehicle tail light wiring and has 4-Way flat connectors to plug into the RV. If the RV has a different connector other than a 4-Way we do offer all sorts of adapters. Consult...

  • Does a Brake Buddy Supplemental Braking System Wire Directly to the Battery on a 2015 GMC Acadia
  • We don't carry the Brake Buddy products so I had to look up the instructions. They actually have 3 different models in their current line up. The Stealth unit does need to connect to the battery. The Vantage and the Classic plug into a 12 volt outlet (cigarette lighter). If your 12 volt power outlets are not active after using the fuse bypasses or pulling the fuses then you would want to install a 12 volt outlet kit # RM-9332. I have linked a video as an example of how it installs. The...
