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! 242123

  • Replacement Diode Recommendations for Tow Bar Wiring in a 2005 Dodge Dakota
  • 6 amp diodes should be more than large enough to power the taillights of your 2005 Dodge Dakota. Typically incandescent bulb circuits will draw much less than that. I doubt you would need 12 diodes, but what comes with the # BX88159 that you referenced should work well for you. Or, you can order them individually with part # BX8864. I attached a couple FAQ articles on tow bar wiring for you to check out as well.
