Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring BX8861 Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing part number BX8861. This is the Blue Ox 4-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way Round Plugs. This is going to allow you to quickly and easily connect your towed vehicle to your RV using the durable insulated electrical cable. The 4-wire extension cord can be used for multiple towing applications. It's going to be ideal for running power from your RV to your towed vehicle. It's also going to include two 4-way round sockets that mount to the RV and one mounts to the towed vehicle for quick, easy hook up. All you have to do is connect your wires to the back of the socket and mount one of this to your RV and the other one to your towed vehicle.

The mount holes on this unit are going to be separated by 1 7/8, 7 inch, center around center, and they're going to measure a 1/4 inch by 3 16/17 inch. It's going to feature a spring-loaded lid. That way it's going to remain closed, we're not connected. That's designed to help keep out dirt and moisture and protect your connection points. It's also going to feature a finger grip at the bottom of the lid to easily open up the lid. The coil cable can expand to 7 feet, yet still contracts to prevent dragging and tangling, also making it really easy for a nice convenient storage. It's going to feature silicon and cased wire connections that are going to prevent corrosion.

This unit is going to be constructed at 16-gauge wire, and then the ground wire is going to be 12-gauge. Here on the connectors, they got easy to grip, or easy grip finger tabs as well, that way you can disconnect them really easily from the socket connector. That's going to do it for our review of part number BX8861. This is the Blue Ox 4-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord. .

Super fast shipper. Donna was so helpful and walked us thru deciding on the correct part. Very patient and pleasant customer service.

We originally bought this product over two years ago from etrailer and we were happy with its performance. We did some annual maintenance on the tow bar so we decided to buy a new coil. We bought the second coil via [online retailer] (same manufacturer) and within a few days of using it we noticed it did not perform the same as our original purchase. We sent it back and reordered it from etrailer and we are again very happy with it. 695326

This is a great kit to add rear lights to a Ford Focus because you have to remove the negative battery cable for towing. There is more then enough wire to complete the job of wiring the lights from the rear of the car to the front for a permanent installation. 376192

  • Supplemental Flat Towing Equipment and Braking System for Air-Brake Equipped Motorhome Towing F350
  • To safely tow your truck, you'll need a base plate, tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution to ensure the truck taillights work in conjunction with the coach and a supplemental braking system. I'd recommend the Blue Ox # BX2163 base plate kit and the Blue Ox Avail tow bar, part # BX7420. The Avail is rated for vehicles weighing up to 10,000 lbs, which should be fine for your F350. To wire the taillights of the truck, I'd recommend a bulb and socket kit like part # BX8869. You'll...

The Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365 would be a great choice for you. The Alpha includes safety cables, is self aligning and will easily fold up against the rear of the motor home when not in use.

  • You are correct, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, item # 118420, is designed to tow a trailer with your Fit, not to tow the Fit behind a motorhome. The # 118420 harness will not work for towing the Fit, so you will need a different wiring harness altogether. There are several options for tow bar wiring for the 2010 Honda Fit. Blue Ox recommends their Bulb and Socket Tail Light Wiring Kit, item # BX8869. I like this kit because it keeps the RV wiring completely separate from the Dinghy...

The Blue Ox base plates for the 2002 VW Jetta, # BX3827, are designed for use with motor home mounted tow bars and not car mounted tow bars like the Stowmaster. If you like the Blue Ox base plates and want a used tow bar, then the compatible ones you should be looking for are the Blue Ox Aventa, Aladdin, Alpha and Allure tow bars. Motor home mount tow bars are actually the more secure and easier to use option than...

If you prefer a coiled safety cable, the # RM-643 is a good choice. For a straight cable, I would recommend # RM-645.

The safe zone for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3 inches above or below level. RoadMaster high-low adapters will provide you with the necessary drop. Simply flip the adapter over to achieve the desired level. I have linked you to a product page for high-low adapters. One of the first things...
