Video Transcript for Blue Ox Replacement Breakaway Switch Installation - 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Today on our 2015 Jeep Wrangler we'll be having a look at and installing the Blue Ox Second Vehicle Breakaway Kit for Blue Ox Patriot Supplemental Breaking System, part number BRK2505. All right, here's what our breakaway switch looks like installed. As you can see, it'll give us our necessary breakaway functions, even comes with the lanyard to attach to your motor home. This is an ideal solution for if you want to flat tow a second vehicle and only have one braking system share between the two. You can leave your breakaway switch permanently attached on each vehicle and just swap the unit in between the two. Additionally, this kit is also a great solution to fix a damaged or broken breakaway switch. This will allow your brakes to be applied in your towed vehicle when the pin is pulled in the unfortunate incident of your towed vehicle becoming unhooked from your RV.

Now, when we're not flat towing our Jeep behind an RV, we can simply unplug it. We'll take the braking system out, and we can easily tuck the wire underneath our floor mat so it's out of the way while we're driving. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed. Okay, the first thing we need to do is find a spot to mount our breakaway switch. In order to do that, I'll be using one of these no-drill brackets. It's part number 18140.

It just attaches to our base plate using a hose clamp. We'll make a mark on our bracket where we need to drill a hole. With that marked we'll take our bracket and go drill a hole in it. Okay, with our hole drilled we'll place our breakaway switch over the hole, put a bolt through that we have, and we'll put on a hex flange nut here. Now the end of our breakaway switch we'll plug into our extension cable here. As you can see it's keyed; it only goes one way.

Push it in until it's secure all the way. Then we'll wrap our connection up with some electrical tape. We'll go down onto our wires a little bit too. Not only will this provide us with a weather-tight connection, but it'll also help prevent these wires from ever becoming unplugged. Now right here in the center of our air dam underneath the vehicle, we're going to drill a hole for our wire to pass through. We'll take our wire now and we'll feed it through that hole.

With that stuck through the hole now we can clamp our breakaway switch to our base plate with the provided clamp. We'll use a 5/16 nut driver to run the clamp down. Cut off the excess of our clamp now; use a pair of tin snips to do that. All right, so here's where our wire passed through our hole. It'll come through on our air dam through here. We routed it up to our engine bay, making sure we avoided any moving parts or sources of heat, tucked it behind these wiring harnesses here where it comes up into our engine bay. Okay, our wire came up here behind those wiring harnesses. We routed it around our washer fluid reservoir, went underneath this panel here, where it comes out right here. We'll now be pushing it through our fire wall through a grommet right here. This grommet does not exist if your vehicle's equipped with a manual transmission; it's only here on an automatic. We'll just take our wire with our headphone connector style end, just push it through. With it pushed in, we can grab it from inside the vehicle now. Okay, you can see where our plug is sticking to the fire wall now through our grommet. We'll just grab it and pull it on down. All right, now that it's installed as you can see, we'll just be able to plug into our portable braking system so we have a functional breakaway switch and we can safely flat tow our vehicle behind our RV. That completes our look at and installation of the Blue Ox Second Vehicle Breakaway Kit for Blue Ox Patriot Supplemental Braking Systems, part number BRK2505 on our 2015 Jeep Wrangler.

With most states requiring supplement barking systems for tow vehicles greater than 3,000 lbs, this breakaway switch provides an extra layer of safety when dingy towing. This is the second switch that we have used, the first is still installed in our Silverado and this one will go in our Grand Cherokee. We have thankfully not have to experience it effectiveness on the road but in preflight chucks it has worked flawlessly. 693351

The products are great. The baseplate was as advertised. The nice surprise is the convenience in prep for towing using the Roadmaster switches.

I bought this wiring harness to set up the lights for towing a 2014 Honda CRV behind our motorhome. It was advertised as a custom wiring harness that did not require cutting the existing wiring, and that describes the product exactly. It took me less than an hour to complete the installation and it has worked perfectly. 239312

Installed this unit along with Baseplate BX2258 onto Honda CRV. Quality parts and cable length was perfect, leaving apx. 12 inches to spare [for wire routing differences] and service loop to reduce/eliminate any strain on wires when installed. Note: Baseplate also came with nice stepped (z-angle?) that enabled very easy mounting of the break-away switch. Plan on having rubber grommets and some RTV to seal hole thru firewall needed to route wires from engine compartment into cab area, which took an unplanned trip to local parts store. 225834

  • Can Blue Ox Flat Towing Parts from 2013 Ford Edge Fit a 2018 Ford Edge SEL
  • You will be able to use your Blue Ox braking system and tow bar but you will need new base plates. The 2013 and 2018 Ford Edge SEL use different base plate designs. Base plates # BX2657 work with SEL models that do not have Active Cruise Control or the 2.0 EcoBoost motor. And they will not fit models with the Driver Assist Package. If your 2018 does have Active Cruise Control but not the EcoBoost 2.0 liter motor then you can use base plates # BX2667. These base plates will be compatible...

  • Can Stay-In-Play DUO Braking System Be Removed and Installed on Different Vehicle?
  • The RV service rep was not speaking the truth. The SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # SM99251 can be removed and installed on another vehicle. You simply need to remove the parts from the vacuum lines and replace with couplers and hose. Other than that, you just remove the parts and reinstall them on your new vehicle. The rep was probably trying to lead you towards another very good and viable option like the Blue Ox Patriot Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System...

  • Blue Ox Patriot Breakaway Installation on 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Being Flat Towed
  • On your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Blue Ox Patriot breakaway connector should be mounted to the front of your vehicle on the driver's side using bolt and lock nut. I've attached the instructions to assist. It is obvious the installer did not do this correctly and you were right to question the installation. The grill will most likely need to be trimmed to accommodate the fit as you can see in the attached video. There is a decent amount of force needed to activate that pin. ...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2010 Jeep Wrangler and 2017 Ford F-250
  • First you'll need a base plate kit/adapter for both vehicles. For the 2010 Wrangler with an off-road bumper that has 1 inch D-rings you'd need the part # RM-035-1 and then for the 2017 F-250 you'd need the # RM-524452-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Blackhawk part # RM-422. This has non-binding arms which makes the setup very...
