Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-155 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM-155. This is the road master taillight wiring kit with the included sockets and bulbs. This kit is going to let you use your toed vehicles, brake, running and signal lights without taping into the vehicle wiring. Please note, to get this installed your toed vehicle must have enough room inside the tail light lens housing for an extra bulb and socket assembly. The size hold that you're going to need in order to get the socket mounted in the taillight housing is going to be one inch in diameter. You can use a one inch hole saw or a rotary cutting tool to make that hole. When you're installing this your wiring is going to be routed beneath the vehicle.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-154 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM-154. This is the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit. This kit is going to connect your RV's tail brake and turn signal lights to your towed car's lighting system. It is designed to work with 2-Wire and 3-Wire lighting systems. 2-Wire systems also know as combined systems are going to have the stop and turn signals sent along the same wire. 3-Wire systems also know as separate systems are going to have the stop and turn signals sent along different wires. This unit is going to prevent electrical feedback and the damage it can cause to your vehicles electrical components.


Trailer Wiring Harness for Towed Vehicles Installation - 2005 Jeep Liberty

Today on our 2005 Jeep Liberty, we're going to show you how to install the TrailerMate Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles. This is part number TM781104. Here's what your harness is going to look like when you receive it. You're going to get a nice quantity of zip ties. We're going to have our small extension which will extend our plug out to where we can get it to our vehicle. We have our mounting bracket for it, a couple of small screws to help us secure that and even a couple of the padded cable hold downs, be able to zip tie our wire to once we run it to the front of the truck. You see the one here that's got yellow, brown, white and red This is going to go inline behind our driver side tail light.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox we're going to be installing the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power diode wiring kit. This is part number RM-154. For our diode wiring kit, we're going to begin our installation by routing this right up to the front where we're going to make our connection with the back of our RV. We're doing this with the fascia off the car at this point just because it's going to make routing so much easier to get in. Keep in mind, when you're doing a diode kit like this, you have to run your wires, or any wires for that matter, any air lines, whatever the case is, get it done while this is off. It's really going to save you some time.


Roadmaster 6-Diode Universal Wiring Kit Installation - 2011 Cadillac SRX

Today on our 2011 Cadillac SRX we're going to show you how to install the Roadmaster 6-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles with Separate Lighting. Part number is 154-792-118158. Now to begin our installation we're going to take the long piece of four-pole wire that has the four-way plug on the end of it. What we want to do is just kind of work this up through from underneath the vehicle so it comes out close to the mounting bracket we'll be using for our wiring. I'm using a piece of airline tubing here. You could use a piece of coat hanger or something that's just kind of like a stiffer wire. Take one of our four-pole wires now.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to be installing the Roadmaster FuseMaster. This is a 20-amp mini-fuse fuse bypass that's 13 inches long. Part number is RM76511. Now here's the fuse panel we need to access. Pop that off. If we look down here, we've got one main 40-amp, a 15, a 30, and a 5. We're bypassing that 5.


Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2013 Ford Edge

The date is 2012 Ford Edge. We are going to show you the Hopkins custom tail light wiring kit for towed vehicles. Part number HM56001. Okay, this is what the wire harness looks like before we install it. We'll go ahead and cover some of the details of it. First off is a T-type connection.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring Kit Installation - 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Today on our 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited we're going to be showing you how to install the Roadmaster universal high powered diode wiring kit, this is part number RM-154. To begin our installation we're going remove the passenger side and driver side tail light housings here, just a couple of phillips screws will hold those in. Take out the two closest to the middle here, we ought to be able to wiggle that and bring it right out. We'll separate our connector here by pressing in on the tab and then sliding it out. Set that aside for re-installation later, we'll do the same thing for the driver side. Now it's time to test our wires out here and figure out exactly what's what in the harness.

  • 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. It only receives the signals from the vehicle wiring. However, the 119179KIT has a 4-Way flat style connector. 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...

  • 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...

  • Yes, we have a video showing the installation of the Brake-Lite Relay, # RM-88400, on a Honda CR-V. Check out the video that I attached. Since your CR-V has separate tail light wiring and you are using the TrailerMate wiring harness, there is one more check you will want to do to determine if you need the brake light relay. With the vehicle turned off, step on the brakes. If your brake lights come on with the vehicle off, then you will need the Brake-Lite Relay. The Brake-Lite Relay...

  • 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...

  • There are several wiring kit options available for flat towing a 2013 Ford Focus, see link.

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...

  • Installing MaxxTow # MT70097 Magnetic Mount Tow Lights Permanently on Vehicle
  • The MaxxTow Magnetic Tow Lights you mentioned # MT70097 could be modified by doing some cutting and splicing to work as you describe. You would attach the connector of the wiring harness at the front of the vehicle and run the wiring under the vehicle. Following the frame member or an existing wiring harness works best. Run the wires to the rear of the vehicle, being sure to avoid any suspension and steering components that might move or anything hot like the exhaust system. Under the...

The Flacon 2 features quick disconnects and auto-locking arms that allow you to couple to the RV even if the car is not perfectly lined up behind the RV. To provide an attachment point on the vehicle to connect the tow bar, you will need to install a base plate...

You'll need to access the rear of the taillight assemblies by removing them, and locate where the vehicle wiring harness plugs into the taillight assembly. The TrailerMate harness would plug inline with that connection, with the connectors with the YELLOW wire being used on the driver's side. The white wire with the ring terminal would ground to the vehicle body. The remainder of the harness would pass to the underside...

  • How Long Do Batteries Last And What Is Lumen Output For Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights
  • 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. They also told me that the output lumens for these lights is equivalent to a 35 watt light bulb. That equates to about 130 lumens.

  • 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. This will install onto your Fiesta and be the attachment point from the tow bars. Next, you will need a RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar, part # RM-576 and...

  • For a 2008 Chevy HHR you will need FuseMaster # RM76510 to bypass the fuse that normally would have to be pulled in order to flat tow the vehicle. Please consult the HHR owners manual to confirm that fuses do in fact have to be pulled to flat tow the car as well as for other important information on flat towing the vehicle. I have included 2 helpful links on flat towing as well as a link to the installation instructions for the FuseMaster.

  • Wiring 2011 Jeep Wrangler for Flat Towing Behind RV

If you take a look at the schematic I have provided, you can see how the system is wired. My research shows that the Roadmaster Tail-Light Wiring Kit with Bulb and Socket, part # RM-155 would be compatible with your Jeep, and would be much easier to install. This system uses bulbs wired directly to the...

  • 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...

The E-Z Mount kit can be used in many positions, including the position you referenced. I added a photo showing a couple of alternate applications that you may find helpful. If this light kit will not work on your Cabrio, I checked with Blue Ox and they...

Also, you are correct, the Discrete Logic Ignition Switch fuse (fuse #32) needs to be removed from the instrument panel fuse box. The instrument panel fuse box is located on the passenger side of the center console, behind a cover. That fuse needs to be removed to keep the battery from being drained when towing.
