Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2011 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2011 Honda Pilot, we're going to be installing the Blue Ox Bulb and Socket Taillight wiring kit, part number BX8869. Here's the Blue Ox kit when you pull it out of the box. We're going to have our 25' of wire that takes us up to the front of the car. We'll be able to connect our 4-pole or 6-pole wiring harness right to that. We'll have our ring terminals and our self-tapping screws for our grounds. We'll have the wires that we'll need to run from the passenger's side over to the driver's side and hook everything together and an assortment of butt connectors there that will help us do that.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2015 Jeep Cherokee

Today on this 2015 Jeep Cherokee, we're going to show you part number RN-154. This is the Roadmaster Universal High-Powered Diode Wiring Kit. We'll go ahead and cover the parts that come in the kit. You get the 4 high-powered diodes with the terminals. These are crimp terminals, and also some butt connectors for your wires. This is a patch cord to go between your RV and your towed vehicle. This is the wire harness that gets installed on the vehicle.


Blue Ox Fuse ByPass Switch Installation - 2011 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2011 Honda Pilot we're going to be installing the Blue Ox Fuse ByPass Switch for Towed Vehicles, part number BX88271. We're going to have our switch, that's going to allow us to turn that fuse or that circuit on and off. It's going to allow us a couple of things. We can use this if we want to turn off a battery drain source into inside our vehicle when we're going our flat tow, instead of having to go in there and pull that fuse each time. All we'll have to do is flip our switch to the off position. It'll open up that circuit so we won't have to worry about a battery drain. Another very important thing, especially as we're towing a vehicle behind, sometimes it's accumulating miles.


Hopkins Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2006 Jeep Liberty

Today on this 2006 Jeep Liberty, we're going to show you part number HM56203. This is the Hopkins Custom Taillight Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles. This is what we get in the kit. This is our actual wire harness right here and this is actually a T-connector that plugs into the factory wire harness. This one with the green wire will actually go to our passenger's side. This is our converter that contains all our diodes to protect the vehicle from the towed vehicle and here's our T-connector for the driver's side.


Tow Ready Tow Bar Wiring 18148 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number 18148, this is the Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights. It's going to connect using a four-way flat connector and the harness length is going to measure twenty-six feet. Now, real quick I just want to point out that it's going to come with this nice heavy-duty plastic carrying case, that way when the lights are not being used, everything can be stored inside here. It's got a nice little handle on it and again it's a hard plastic construction, so it's going to do a good job when it comes to protecting the lights. That way you can always keep it close at hand and you can always keep the lights nearby for when you need them, and then you can store them away when they aren't being used. I'm going to go ahead and move this to the side that way we can focus a little bit more here on the lights. Now, these are going to be removable tow lights that are going to supply trailer or towed car with the lights required for towing, such as your stop functions, taillights and turn signals.


Pilot Wireless Magnetic Tow Lights Installation - 2010 Mini Cooper

Today on our 2010 Mini Cooper we're going to be installing the pilot magnetic tow lights. There are the red LED style, part number is NV-5164. The pilot lights are designed to work in many different amplications 00:00:13, and these are going to take care of your tail-light, your turn, and any of your stop light functions. As you can see the light is a nice compact, I'd 00:00:27 only have one for each side of the vehicle. They're clearly labeled, so you have the right one on the right side. You've got a magnetic base and it's going to have a fully rubberized cover or protection sleeve around here, that we will not have to worry about scratching the vehicle's paint or anything like that. That's really easy to use, set up. It's going to wirelessly transmit any of the lighting functions back to your lights, and they'll be fully functioning. It's got a nice carrying handle.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 1997 Jeep Cherokee

Today on our 1997 Jeep Cherokee, we'll be installing the Road Master Base Plate Wiring Kit, Part RM-154. To start off, we'll want end of our Road Master wiring harness through the hole in the front bumper on the driver's side. We'll use a zip tie to secure it and cut off any excess. We'll cut one of the ends of our wiring, since we'll only need one. We'll then run the cut end of the wiring up through the bumper and into the engine compartment. To make it easier, we'll use a pull wire. In this case, we're using old airline tubing. It also could be any piece of wiring that holds it's shape as well, to pull up our new wire. We'll use the airline tubing, which we'll run down through the engine compartment and out the bottom.


Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2008 Chevrolet HHR

Today, on our 2008 Chevrolet HHR we're going to be installing the Hopkins tow bar wiring, part number HM56100. To begin our install, we're going to start at the rear of the vehicle. We need to open up the rear hatch and remove the access panels just behind the tail light assemblies. There's one on each side. I'm just going to use a flat blade screw driver, get behind it and pop it free. Behind the access panel, we can see the manufacturer's wiring as it comes into the tail light. Here from the converter box is our yellow wire connector that will ultimately plug in here behind the driver's side tail light assembly.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 1991 Toyota Pickup

Today on our 1991 Toyota pickup, we'll be installing a Roadmaster base plate wiring kit, part number RM-154. To start off, we'll cut off one of the ends of our wiring, since we'll only need one. We'll then run the cut end of our wiring up through the bumper and to the engine compartment. To make things easier, we'll use a pull wire, in this case, some old airline tubing. We'll attach the wiring with some electrical tape to our pull line and pull it into place, untangling any kinks or knots that may form. We'll pull it all the way through. We'll protect our wiring with some loom that comes in our kit.

  • Compatibility of Magentic Towing Light that has a 4-Round Plug and RV that has 6-Round Trailer Plug
  • Since the 119176KIT (installation details linked below) gets the power for the lights directly for the vehicle battery, it does not require any power from the vehicle wiring.

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...

The TrailerMate harness would plug inline with that connection, with the connectors with the YELLOW wire being used on the driver's side.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Behind a Motor Home
  • From what I have found the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited does NOT need to have fuses pulled to flat tow it. This means you will not need a fuse bypass. Consult the owners manual to confirm this and for other specific information on flat towing your Jeep. There are other items needed to flat tow your Jeep: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates I recommend the Roadmaster XL base plates # 1439-1. These base plates will fit without an...

  • Needed Items for Flat Towing 2012 Honda Fit
  • 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 would recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520. The Falcon 2 is our best seller, and is easy to operate. The vehicle-specific base plate kit is part # 521190-1. I will link you to our video showing this kit being installed on a 2010 Honda Fit. Next, you will need...

I looked up the owners manual online for the 2013 Ford Focus and the vehicle can be flat towed but make sure you look over the recreational towing section in your owners manual for all the specific information. In addition...

  • Wiring Recommendation to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • For the 2013 Honda CR-V getting the correct wiring harness for flat towing depends on a few factors. If you are going to be towing the vehicle often then using a custom harness like # TM783120 would be a good choice. But if you are using a supplemental braking system (which is required by law in most states) then you will also need a brake light relay # RM-88400. If you will not be towing often then I recommend a magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A. This bypasses the vehicle wiring so a brake...

  • I did some checking and it looks like a 2011 Ford Fiesta with an automatic transmission is good to tow as is. However, you should check with the owners manual to check for any limitations or recommendations. You will need a few things to accomplish this, the first thing being a Roadmaster EZ2 Base Plate Kit, part # 524425-1.

  • Using E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit, # EZT20B, with a Tow Dolly Already Connected to RV Trailer Connector
  • The Roadmaster Tow Dolly with electric brakes, # RM-2000-1, also already has lights on it which is why they did not provide an additional socket for lights. It also has a 6-Way round pin trailer connector and not a 7-Way. Since your RV has a 7-Way, you can use the Hopkins mutli-tow adapter, # HM47570. This connector will allow you to plug in the 4-Way on the E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit, # EZT20B. but you have to consult the RV owners manual to determine if it can handle the power draw from...
