Video Transcript for Blue Ox Towing Accessories Kit Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox towing accessories kit for the Alpha and Aventa LX tow bars. This offers the seven-wire to six-wire Flexo-Coil cable and a 10,000 pound capacity. Part number is BX88231. Now the Flexo-Coil is going to have the seven-pole standard end which will connect to the back of our RV, and the six-pole end that we can connect to the plug that we installed in the front of the truck. You can see it's designed with some spring back. That's going to help prevent it, just like our safety chains here, from hanging down and potentially dragging on the ground causing damage.Now the tab on the top will go up as we slide our connector in position.

We want to be sure that the tab on the door goes down behind that to hold it. The same thing for our six-pole end here. Got that little groove on the top; that faces up. Then the catch is going to go right behind that.Now our accessories kit also has three locks with it. We've got one that's 5/8" in diameter.

That's designed to secure our tow bar to the back of our RV. The two smaller diameter pins here are designed for connecting the tow bar to the vehicle. We'll get rid of the old pin. You can see how easy it is to remove this. Of course if you can easily remove it you can easily take it off of the vehicle.

By having our locks in place this is going to help to protect our investment that we've made in the tow bar and prevent anybody from removing it when we don't want them to. You'll see that's just going to slide right through. The key won't come out of the lock until we lock it down. We'll slide that on there. You want to make sure it goes all the way on and then turn the key.

You can see then it's just a matter of capping it off. All three locks are going to operate exactly the same. Now all locks are going to be keyed the same. You'll have one set of key for each of the locks. They're all numbered the same. You'll essentially have six keys for the system.Now with our Ram installation, we used the diode kit. That's typically the way you'll want to go as long as your vehicle will accept that. If not, they have also provided the bulb and socket kit. The bulb and socket kit would be in lieu of tying into your vehicle's wiring harnesses. We just drill a hole in the taillight housing, place that in, silicon seal around it, and we can connect our ground, our turn signal, and our running light signal directly to that using the same wiring setup that we did when we installed the diodes.Now the biggest advantage to using a diode setup like what we have here is that we're able to turn two inputs into a single output without worrying about them backfeeding to one another. Let's say you we're to use just a butt connector and splice these together. When the signal is coming from the motor home it's going to backfeed into the vehicle's system. When the signal's coming from the truck, it's going to backfeed into the motor home system. That's something that you don't want. This allows us to isolate those. This one will never be able to feedback this way, and this one will never be able to feedback this way, although they'll both be able to turn the light on and off when we need it.That's going to complete our look at the Blue Ox towing accessories kit for the Alpha and Aventa LX tow bars, part number BX88231.

The Blue Ox Accessory Kit for the Aventa LX Tow Bar, the extra (2) Diodes, the Fuse By-Pass Switch, the Aventa LX Tow Bar and the Patriot Brake Unit all arrived in tact and in a timely manner. I really appreciate the help in defining what I need to tow my '09 Yukon behind our new Newmar Dutch Star. So far the wiring is complete - and works! I hope to have the Tow Bar hardware done this week - i'll try and get a picture. Thanks again! 242120

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Recommended Flat-Towing products For 2008 Honda Fit
  • There are five items you need when flat-towing your 2008 Honda Fit. You need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for your Fit, and most states now require a supplemental brake system. The base plates I recommend are the Blue Ox Base Plates, part # BX2252. For a tow bar I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365. This tow bar lets you hook up your towed vehicle, even when you are on ground that is not level. For safety cables I recommend part # RM-643. I also recommend...

  • Follow-Up for JEFF LAYTON
  • I recommended the Roadmaster Wiring kit, part # RM-154 because it has diodes included which help prevent any electrical feedback from your RV, so it does help protect your electrical system. There is another option you may be interested in. It is the Blue Ox Towing Accessories Kit for Alpha and Aventa LX Tow Bars, part # BX88231. This kit includes a 7-wire to 6-wire harness, a bulb and socket tail light kit with all required wiring, a receiver lock that secures the tow bar to the RV,...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT
  • The correct base plate kit for your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 is the Blue Ox kit part # BX1711 that you referenced. Between the two wiring kits you referenced the correct one will be the one that will match the connector you have at the back of your 2014 Tiffin. If you have a 7-way there you would want the # BX88231. If you have a 6-way round there you would instead want the # BX88190. The # BX88231 does not come with safety chains, the # BX88190 does so you would need the # BX88197 if you...

  • Can Blue Ox Towing Accessories Kit Tow Bars Wire to Vehicle with Combined Circuits
  • The wiring kits of the # BX88231 will work well on your 2006 Jeep Liberty. Even though your vehicle is wired for separate turn signals from stoplights this kit can wire so that your taillights will activate with combined circuits which will work just fine. The dual intensity bulbs of your vehicle taillights will blink and illuminate correctly with the stoplight circuits of your vehicle. Or you can use the bulb and socket kits that come with the kit which would provide the same function. I...

  • Is an Adapter Needed To Flat Tow a 2012 Jeep Wrangler if the Motorhome has 7-Way Blade Connector
  • As long as the 7-way on your Motorhome is wired as a combined system (which is how most are wired) then you will not need a taillight converter. If the motorhome connection is combined, the umbilical is combined (7-way and 6-pin cord), and the Jeep is combined, all the systems are combined and compatible. To test and make sure that the 7-way is wired as a combined system, you can use a circuit tester like the Draw-Tite Circuit Tester # 40376, and test the blades on the 9 o'clock position...
