Roadmaster Accessories and Parts - RM-048-10

Make up for the height difference between your RV and towed vehicle with this hitch adapter. Provides either a 10-1/4" drop or a 10-1/4" rise. Solid shank provides strength and durability.


Features:

  • Allows for proper positioning of tow bar
    • Makes up for height difference between RV's hitch and towed vehicle's base plates
    • Also lets you mount a bike rack, cargo carrier, or other 2" hitch accessory
  • Provides either drop or rise for adequate ground clearance
  • Constructed of sturdy steel
    • Solid shank for superior strength and durability
  • Resists rust and corrosion with black powder coat finish
  • Hitch pin and clip or hitch lock sold separately
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: 2" x 2" trailer hitch receivers
  • Drop/rise: 10-1/4"
  • Receiver: 2" x 2"
  • Tongue weight: 400 lbs
  • Gross towing weight: 10,000 lbs
  • Length:
    • 11-1/4" From center of hitch pin hole to center of hitch pin hole
    • 4-1/2" From center of hitch pin hole to angled brace
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Note: This adapter is designed to flat tow a vehicle only. Do not use to tow a trailer. When using with a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, the tongue weight of your hitch will be reduced by at least 50 percent.


Most tow systems require some sort of hitch accessory to either raise or lower the tow bar to an appropriate level. The "Safe Zone" for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3" above level to 3" below. Car-mounted models must be absolutely level. This high-low adapter can provide you with the necessary drop or desired rise to achieve a level tow bar setup.

I needed this much drop to tow my low Ford Fiesta behind my Winnebago Sightseer. Didn't register how high the hitch was on the Winnebago when I bought it. This adapter fit the bill perfectly, got great service from the folks at etrailer, and have had no problems with the adapter. You can't go wrong with etrailer. 339830

The folks that I talked to knew their stuff very well. They quoted me prices and delivery accurately and the product was delivered right on time. And finally the pricing was very good. I will use e-trailer whenrver i have other needs for my motor home and towing system. 583470

Mounted on Jeep Grand Cherokee to lower hitch for attachment of wheelchair/scooter carrier. Does the job, and also extends the carrier further rearward, which provides sufficient clearance for the rear hatch to clear the scooter when loaded. 421437

Ordered my tow bar, a 10" riser, some adapters, locks and anti-rattle brackets. Was notified that the adapters and anti-rattle brackets were on back order. Cancelled those two items and they shipped the rest. Received in two days and everything arrived in good condition. Was able to order the remaining two items elsewhere and still have everything I needed prior to leaving for vacation. Big thanks to Chedi for working with me and getting everything shipped so fast. Great company, great people and great products. Will definitely order from them again. 512404

Required an hi/low hitch receiver of either 6" or 10" drop, was not sure which, & a light weight cargo carrier for traveling. Called etrailer and very heloful, patient and knowledgable CSR Cathy T fixed me up. Arrived on time. No problems. 476055



- RM-048-10
by:

It's a big drop, 10 inches. I needed to get a 35 gal. tank low enough to the ground to drain waste water from my camper and take it to the dump station without always hooking back up to the camper. The waste tank sets on the aluminum platform and is easily transported to where it needs to go. The high-low adapter is rated at 10,000 pounds and more than I need for this application but it's going to be used for other things too. 538439

This was the perfect height to level my tow bar to my lifted jeep. I recommend using a good quality clamp on the upper and lower receiver to stabilize the hitch assembly. 379389

I bought this to align the tow bar from my motor home to my jeep which has larger than standard tire. This is a heavy duty item and has worked without issue since I purchased it. It is robust enough that I have no doubt that it will last a long time. 702921



- RM-048-10
by:

I bought this receiver for use with my bike rack. I have a frame mounted receiver on the back of my travel trailer. Before I used the receiver, the tires from my bicycles would strike the ground going over uneven ground, such as driveways. By flipping the receiver upside down, the 10 inch rise gives me tremendous clearance to prevent the bicycle tires from striking the ground. I now use the receiver for the rear receiver on my 3500 GMC. I have used the receiver over one dozen times and have not had any issues. The only down side, is the weight of the receiver; but for the quality and strength of the receiver, I can happily live with the extra weight. 680301

by:

Great response time and well made product. The pin hole in the solid shank is too far to the rear, which makes the overall extension of the hitch, excessive. I will have a local machine shop bore a new hole closer to the vertical weldment, making the overall extension of the hitch combination, less risky to those working around the rear of the vehicle. 594487

etrailer customized the RM-048-10 by lengthening the shaft so that it would fit through the bumper of our Class C RV and be strong enough to support the Stowaway 2 Cargo Carrier. It works beautifully! During travel there is some left to right wiggle that occurs with the carrier. We solved this problem with ratchet straps to secure both sides of the carrier. The hitch is stout and strong, and does the job! Of course we strengthened it with the clamps, so the hitch is solid and unmovable. With the custom hitch, the Stowaway 2 carrier is lifted enough so that it doesn't bottom out when traveling up or down steep hills. etrailer staff are very easy to work with, along with the brilliant engineers who communicated well with the exact details of the design to assure the build worked safely. It is an excellent hitch; worth the value. We're on the road again with all of our lawn chairs/tables, etc. in the cargo carrier out of the elements, instead of inside the RV. Great work, etrailer! Thank you! S&S 398293

  • How to Carry Bike Rack and Flat Tow Vehicle with 10 INch Riser Adapter
  • I do have a solution for you, however I do not recommend using the Roadmaster Dual Hitch Receiver # RM-077-10 in conjunction with the High-Low Adapter # RM-048-10 that you already have. Using an adapter with another adapter like this will cause a really unstable connection and essentially reduce the weight capacity of your RV's hitch to an unknown number. A better solution for what you are looking to do is with the Gen-Y Adjustable Ball Mount # 325-GH-515 (or for just the shank part...

The Roadmaster EZ5 Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-5 is the most economical and cleaner looking option that will fit your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Sport with a standard factory bumper.

If you think your safety cables may be an issue, and yours are shorter than 7', an option would be the Blue Ox Blue Ox 7' Safety Cables # BX88197.

  • The longest adapter we carry is the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter - 2" Hitches - 10-1/4" Rise/Drop - 10K GTW, 400 lbs TW # RM-048-10. I don't know if you measured from the top of the receiver opening, but this will get you 10-1/4 inches of drop from the center of the receiver tube opening. Your tow bar can have a 3 inch drop but anything further than that isn't safe due to road bumps.

  • How Far Off Level Can a Tow Bar Be When Flat Towing a Vehicle Behind an RV
  • For most tow bars the "safe zone" between the RV and the toad is 3 inches off level. The height is measured from the ground to the center of the receiver opening and to the center of the base plate. If you find that your set up is outside of the safe zone then there are high/low adapters you can use to compensate for the height difference. I have included a link to our help article explaining the adapters and safe zone as well as a link to our selection of high/low adapters.

  • Correct Use of Roadmaster 10 Inch High-Low Hitch Adapter

The Roadmaster 10 inch High - Low Hitch Adapter, part number RM-048-10, is not designed to have tongue weight applied to it like when towing a boat trailer, utility trailer or camper. This adapter is designed for applications where the towed vehicle is resting on its own four wheels and being pulled by another vehicle with a tow bar. We do have ball mounts with a 10 inch drop or more and adjustable draw bars that will allow...

  • Hitch Adapter Recommendation For Flat Towing

Normally the safe zone for towing a vehicle is either 3 inches above or 3 inches below. You want to make sure your towed vehicle is absolutely level for safe towing. I recommend the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars, part # RM-048-8. It has a weight capacity of 10,000 lbs, fits 2 inch by 2 inch receivers, and has a rise/drop of 8 inches. It measures...

  • When using a tow bar to pull your modified 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited you will need a high/low adapter to reduce the height difference between it and the RV. The greatest amount of rise available comes from the two items shown on the linked page, Roadmaster # RM-048-10 and Blue Ox # BX88132. There is no adapter with 15-inches of rise. Generally tow bar makers recommend no more than 3-inches above or below level for either end of the tow bar, so you may need to re-position your D-rings...

The potential issue with using 2 adapters like you mentioned is that it's going to cause an awful lot of movement at the connection point which may lead to failure down the line. With a flat towing setup using 2 adapters like this isn't as much of a concern compared to with a hitch mounted...

It will also reduce your hitch capacity by 50-percent, as do all such adapters/extenders.

  • Solution to Allow a Cargo Carrier be Carried Higher than Stock Hitch Height
  • Because the high/low adapters like the part # RM-048-10 that you referenced are only designed for flat-towing purposes I cannot recommend you use one with your cargo carrier. The best recommendation I could make for you would be to use a Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210. This will give you about 4-1/2 inches of additional rise for your cargo carrier.

  • Carrying Bikes at the Back of an RV While Towing a Car on a Tow Dolly at the Same Time
  • There are a couple of hurdles to overcome in order to be able to carry bikes while using a tow dolly at the same time. First there is the drop issue. The most amount of drop from an adapter that we have is 10-1/4 inches, # RM-048-10, which will still work even if it doesn't quite get down to 12 inches. There aren't any dual receivers that you can use that will also have enough drop and work with a tow dolly. So what I propose is to use the above 10-1/4 drop adapter with a different kind...

  • Trailer Hitch Riser for a Class I Trailer Hitch on a 2016 Honda Accord Sedan
  • The best option that I can offer that is also compatible with the Class I trailer hitch on your 2016 Honda Accord is the Brophy adapter # HT5R. It will provide an additional 5 inches of rise. It fits the 1-1/4 hitch you have but the upper receiver is for 2 inch accessories. Please note that the use of this adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. That means that the weight of the Cart Caddie, loaded and ready to go, cannot exceed 100 pounds.

You should note that using adapters like this does cut the capacity of the hitch by 50 percent so you would need to verify that your hitch would have the capacity. To minimize movement you may also want the part # RM-061 that locks...

It also moves the accessory further away from the hitch receiver resulting in extra stress on the hitch (which is the reason the tongue weight capacity is reduced).
