Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2015 Ford Fiesta

Male: Today our 2015 Ford Fiesta ST hatchback. We'll be installing the Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles. It's an LED bulb and socket, part number RM-152-LED. This is completely independent from your vehicle wiring, so you don't have to tap into your factory wiring. It's an auxiliary bulb that goes into the tail light housing. This provides proper lighting functions to your vehicle while flat-towing a car without putting any tress on your factory wiring. Okay, here's what our kit consists of. We have our two LED bulbs, here, which will go into our tail light assemblies.


Roadmaster Diode 7 to 6 Wire Coil Kit Installation - 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Today on our 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited we'll be installing the Roadmaster Diode seven-wire to six-wire Flexo-coil wiring kit, part number RM-15267. All right, here's what the wiring looks like installed. As you can see it doesn't take up very much space on the front of the vehicle at all, tucks up nicely out of the way. This will allow us to safely flat-tow our vehicle behind our RV and have all of our factory lighting functions still work. We don't have to worry about using magnetic tow lights or having an extra set of lights added to the vehicle to tow it. This utilizes the factory light bulbs already in the vehicle utilizing diodes.


Custer Tow Bar Wiring LIWSR1-7B Review

Take a look at the Custer Lite-it Magnetic Smart-Rider Wireless LED Tow-light with the 7-way blade connector. This wireless LED tow-light is very simple, lightweight and easy to use. It is a magnetic installation. There are no straps to fumble with. You just grab it, set it, and go. It uses these low profile magnets down here that have 90 lbs of pull.


Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit Installation - 2017 Chevrolet Spark

Today in our 2017 Chevrolet Spark, we'll be installing the road master taillight wiring kit for towed vehicles, LAD socket part number RM-152-LED.Speaker 2: All right, here's what our light looks like installed. This towed vehicle lighting system's great because it isolates our towed vehicle lighting system completely from vehicle's factory lights. It doesn't tie in any of the wiring at all. If you have any electrical problems over RV it won't cause any damage at all to our vehicle's expensive lighting circuits. The system's also great because the lights we put in are LED so they're brighter and they'll last a very long time. You won't have to worry about changing a bulb out more frequently.


Roadmaster Diode 7 to 6 Wire Coil Kit Installation - 2007 Chevrolet HHR

Today in our 2007 Chevrolet HHR, we'll be installing the Roadmaster Diode 7 wire to 6 wire flexo-coil wiring kit, part number RM-15267. Here's what a wiring kit comes with. Most importantly, we have our connector here. This will be our umbilical between our RV and our vehicle in tow. The 7 way goes towards the 7 way on the back of the RV, and the 6 way here will go to the front of our vehicle right here on this connector. This will allow us to have all of our lighting circuitry on the vehicle work in conjunction with the motor home, and because this uses diodes, there's no extra bulbs and sockets.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch Installation - 2016 Honda Fit

Today on our 2016 Honda Fit, we're going to be showing you how to install the Road Master Fuse Master dual fuse bypass switch for towed vehicles, rated for use with up to two 20 amp ATM mini fuses. The part number is RM76512. All right now, here's what our Fuse Master is going to look like. It's a really straightforward kit. This is going to solve the problem that we often have when we want to haul our vehicle behind our motor home and we have to pull out several fuses. This is a dual bypass, so this is going to take care of two fuses for us. The fuses can be rated all the way up to 20 amps, so it should take care of most applications.


Roadmaster Diode Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit Installation - 2016 Ford F-150

Today in our 2016 Ford F-150, we're going to be showing you how to install the Roadmaster 7-wire to 4-wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit with diodes. Part number is RM-15247. Now, our wiring installation, it's going to begin well before we start putting diodes in and things. We're going to get our main wire ran right up here to the front of the vehicle with the bumper off of the truck, that way we're not trying to fight in behind there and just cause ourselves headaches. I'm going to go in right here by the air box. I'm going to push my wire up this direction, we'll bring it out in here over to here. Some of the zip ties will be good to have handy, that way when you do find the correct location you're going to be running this, you can get that zip tied off.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-2100 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Roadmaster deluxe magnetic tow lights with the four pull round connectors. Now the law will usually require that all towed cars will have functional signal and brake lights and sync with the RV that's towing them, so most wiring kits require you splice them to your vehicle's wiring system, but doing this can void your manufacturer's warranty. That's why a magnetic tow light like this will avoid that problem by having the wiring run underneath your car and plug into your power source. There's no splicing required. This part will allow you to legally tow your car without having to tap into its wiring. Eliminates the risk of electrical damage to the towed car. Now these lights we'll attach securely with the large polished magnets on them.


Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-2120 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Road Master Standard Magnetic Tow Lights. Now the law does require that all tow cars will have functional signal and brake lights in sync with the RV that's towing them, but most wiring kits will require to splice into your vehicle's electrical system, but doing this could void the manufacturer's warranty on the vehicle. Now these magnetic tow lights like these will avoid this problem by having the wiring run underneath your car and plug into your power source. There's no splicing required. This will basically allow you to legally tow your car without having to tap into it's wiring. It does eliminate the risk of any electrical damage to the towed car.

  • Are Additional Lights Needed when Towing a Car on a Tow Dolly that Has Lights
  • Additional lights are not typically required when using a tow dolly but you would want to check the laws in the states you will be traveling in to be sure. A lot of people want to use them any way for more visibility of the vehicle, which isn't a bad idea. Since your trailer connector is already in use with the tow dolly lights, you would have to splice into the tow dolly wiring to power the additional lights. In that situation, a wireless system like # NV-5164 would not work. You would...

  • 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...

  • Tow Bar Wiring For 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
  • For flat towing your 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, the easiest wiring kit to install is the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit # HM56000. This kit will plug into your vehicle's existing wiring at the taillights. I have attached an installation video of this wiring on a 2014 F-150 for you. If your RV has a 7-way connector, I recommend using the Blue Ox 7-wire to 6-wire, Coiled Electrical Cord # BX88206. Extensions help to connect the wiring from a tow vehicle to a towed vehicle.

  • Hopkins shows universal trail light wiring kit for towed vehicles # HM55999 as the only option for your 2015 Ford F-150 EcoBoost. There isn't a plug and play type of harness available for your F-150. I have included a link to a video review of this harness for you. There is a 4-Way flat on the end and since most RVs have a 7-Way connector you could use kit # HM47047 and replace the 4-Way flat with the included 4-Way round.

  • Parts Needed to Replace All Wiring a Single Axle Cargo Trailer
  • To completely rewire your cargo trailer, I would recommend picking up a trailer light kit like the Standard Light Kit, # TL5RK, or # TLL9RK for LED lights. These kits include all necessary wiring and hardware needed to install the lights on your trailer. The LED light kit does not include clearance lights. To add clearance lights, I would recommend using # MCL31AB. The best option would be the LED lights because they only use a fraction of the power that the incandescent lights use....

  • Wiring 2012 Cadillac SRX so that Third Brake Light Operates While Flat Towing
  • Although it is not required by law, you can indeed tie in the third brake lamp so that it operates when your SRX is connected to the motorhome. You will need an additional diode, part # RM-790 to prevent backfeed into the SRX. The diode would be wired as shown in the diagram I have produced for you. I have looked online and have not been able to find any information regarding the location of the wiring harness that feeds the third brake light. Your best bet would be to check behind the...

  • Parts Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2014 Fiat 500L
  • I pulled up a copy of the owners manual for a 2014 Fiat 500L and found that the manual transmission vehicles are okay to flat tow as long as you put the vehicle in neutral. You need to check your owners manual to double check this. The first component you will need to flat tow your vehicle is a base plate kit. For that I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plates # RM-522014-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental...

  • Fuse Bypass to Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Actually, fuse bypass # RM76512 is not recommended for the 2014 Honda CR-V. The correct one is # RM76511. You should only have to pull that one fuse. But you can check your vehicle owners manual to be sure. I have included a link to a video to the right showing how the fuse bypass installs. Fuse bypass # RM76512 is listed for a 2012 - 2014 Chevy Cruze.

However, your new Fit owner's manual is the best place to check for any cautions or special requirements for flat-towing your exact version of the 2015 Fit Sport.

  • Recommendation for Adding Taillights to Rear of Hitch Mounted Bicycle Rack
  • We don't offer anything purpose-built to install taillights on a hitch mounted bike rack, but you could effectively modify an existing system very easily. If your bike rack is steel, you could simply use a magnetic mount tow light like part # C-ATL20A. There would be some extra wire you'd need to bundle up and secure with zip ties, but the installation would be very simple. Another option would involve using a light kit designed for a cargo carrier. I'd recommend the # 59516 kit and...

  • 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 4-Way flat trailer connector with extra blue wire for the electric brakes and not a 7-Way. Since your RV has a 7-Way, what I recommend is to change the connector on the tow dolly to a 7-Way, # PK12706, and then you can use the Hopkins mutli-tow adapter, # HM47570. This connector will allow you to plug in the 4-Way...
