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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Installation - 2012 Honda Fit

Today on our 2012 Honda Fit, well be installing the Roadmaster Sterling All-Terrain Tow Bar with 6-Wire Electrical Cord, part #RM-576. To begin with, our vehicle already had the base plate installed. Now we will need to go ahead and remove the 4-flat thats already been connected on this vehicle. We will need to go ahead and find a location to mount our 6-pin bracket to the lower fascia of our vehicle, which is part #RM-910030-5. We will need to remove several fasteners to gain access to the area. Next, we'll need to go ahead and locate a good position to mount our bracket on the lower fascia.

Here we used a right-angle drill to go ahead and drill 2 holes in the lower fascia. You want to make sure before you drills the holes that theres nothing underneath it that could be damaged. Once we have our holes drilled to mount the bracket, you can see how the hardware will go. There will be a bolt, a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. We'll need to put the flat washer, lock washer, and nut on the bolts that we pushed through the lower fascia, where we will be attaching the bracket for the wiring.

Now that we have the bracket mounted, we will need to connect the 4-flat wiring to the back of the pin. Make sure you slide the rubber boot over the wiring before you connect it to the back of the 6-pin connector. You will need to use the 4 wires and wire it to the back of the 6-pin connector. The white will go to the ground, the green will go to the right turn; the brown will go to the running lights, or tail lights; and the yellow will go for the left turn. Once you have the wiring completed, you may want to use some electrical tape to help keep the water out, as well as slide the rubber boot over the top again and use electrical tape over the top of this to help prevent water from entering it and corroding the connections.

Now for the actual wire connection that runs from the 7 pull on the back of our tow vehicle, to the 6 pin that we just mounted to the front of our towed vehicle, we will need to make the connection on the 6 pin on this one. The connections on this one are white goes to the ground; green goes to the right turn; brown goes to the taillights; yellow goes to the left turn; the blue goes to the S, or the brake; and the black is the middle one; or the auxiliary. Now on this particular one, the blue and the black will not be used on our vehicle, but its still good to go ahead and connect them. To make the connection on this one, you'll need to undo the small set screw, which will allow you to slide the center section of the plug out, which will allow you to get to the small set screws for actually connecting the wires to the plug. Once your connections are done, you'll want to slide it back into the plug housing, put the small set screw in as well as theres a larger Phillips-head screw that you'll want to tighten down to help secure the wiring so it doesnt pull out of the plug.

Now we'll go ahead and move on to actually setting up our tow bar on the front of our vehicle. On the lower portion of the safety cable attachment, you will notice a small hole on the lower inner side, or towards the middle of the vehicle. This is where the D-ring will connect, as seen here. To begin with, we will start on the passenger side. The mounting bracket on this one is already in the vehicle. You will take the bolt, put it through the safety plate, then through the vertical pin mount, finally through the mounting bracket. While holding it in place, you will put a flat washer, a lock washer, and then a nut. You will do this for both of the holes. Remember, only tighten them finger tight for now. Next, you'll want to take the safety cable anchor, you'll want to make sure that this anchor is an L shape, and that the zigzag portion of the safety cable is to the front. You'll also notice that there will be a small hole on the lower side towards the center of the vehicle. While holding the center of the other bracket, you will insert the carriage bolt through the washer, down through both the vertical pin plate as well as the safety cable anchor. You may want to tighten a little more, as to help hold it in place. You'll repeat the same process on the drivers side, remembering the whole time to try several times inserting the quick-disconnect tow bar to make sure all of the things are still aligned properly. Once you're sure you have everything aligned properly, you can go ahead and torque them down to the specifications listed in the directions. Its time to install the quick-disconnect crossbar. You'll notice that theres a driver and passenger side marking on it. You need to make sure that you insert it properly. You'll put the two pins into the base as well as slide it over the vertical pin. With this in, you will use a linchpin that slides through the hole in the top of the vertical pin, making sure that the flat section of the linchpin is down, snapping the ring over the top, locking it in place. You will do this for both the passenger and the driver side. Now we'll need to take a few measurements. We'll need to measure from the center of the pin that holds the tow bar to the towed vehicle, to the center of the hitch pin hole on the vehicle doing the towing. You need to make sure that theres not greater than a 3-inch variance either up or down on these measurements. You would be measuring from the ground on each. In this situation, it varies by more than 3 inches, so we are going to use a 6-inch high/low drop bar, part #RM-076, to correct this problem and to get it within the 3-inch variance. Now its time to go ahead and install the tow bar assembly itself. You need to insert it into the receiver on the drop piece that we just installed, then put the hitch pin in, as well as the clip to secure it. Now that you have the tow bar installed in your hitch, you'll need to push the latch thats in the center section, which will allow the tow bar to swing up into the upright position. You want to make sure that the two handles on the tow bar are on the top side. If for some reason theyre not on the top side, you have the tow bar upside down and you will need to flip it over in your receiver hitch. You will need to go to the quick-disconnect base plate and remove the linchpin out of both of the tow bar pins and remove them. You'll need to do this for both the driver and the passenger side. Once you have the base pin and the linchpin removed from each side, you will need to extend the arm out on the tow bar. Once you have the arm extended out, you will insert the base pin through the arm of the tow bar, through the bracket, and put the linchpin back in place. You will do this for both sides. Now that thats done, its time to go ahead and hook up the safety cables. On this particular vehicle, because we had to use the hitch extension, we will need to use some safety cable extension as well; 12-inch extension safety cables are part #RM-910648-12. To insert the safety cables, you will notice on the tow bar there is an area underneath it that is hollowed out where you are able to slide the safety cable through and then you will put it into the quick disconnect on the tow bar bracket. You will start at the top working it in and then going through the zigzag pattern, locking it into place on the bottom. Once you've done that on both sides, you'll want to cross the safety chains before hooking them to the tow hook attachments on your two vehicles, as seen here. You'll want to connect the safety breakaway cable as well, and in this instance we connected it to the safety chain loop on the back of the towed vehicle. Now for the wire lead, you will take the 6 pin and connect it to the plug that we installed on the lower fascia of the vehicle earlier. Now on our vehicle, for the electrical wires, we came down to the outside and then wrapped it around the inside of the tow bar one time, and then plugged it into the 7 way. This way, we would keep the electrical wires from dragging on the ground, yet also allowing enough slack to allow for proper turning. Now we're going to show you what it looks like while going down the road, and that will complete the installation of the Roadmaster Sterling All-Terrain Tow Bar with 6-Wire Electrical Cord, part #RM-576, on our 2012 Honda Fit.

I am very pleased with my decision to purchase the high/low receiver from etrailer.com. It is exactly what I need, was not available locally anywhere I was traveling cross country and, was significantly less expensive than other options I saw on-line or was quoted in stores. I have received fantastic service and communication through the entire buying and shipping process. I ordered Sunday night and received the receiver on Wednesday morning. Could not have been any easier, I highly recommend etrailer.com if you have any hitch related needs. 434507

Just purchased.a used Class A motorhome and recognized that the receiver was at such a height that would require a high/low adapter extension to line up better with our tow vehicle. Ordered it on a Thurs night and received it the following Monday. It appears to be of excellent quality and the price and shipping charges were much less than the price at my local RV dealership! 511948

Item feels very heavy and well build. Also consider that will "stick out" of your rear bumper a good 10- 15 inches... see picture! Car is Chevrolet Tracker- idea was to install rear step on the extension but at the moment I just have a towing shackle... 43459

Decided to flat tow my Jeep behind our new motor home. The Jeep has a 3" lift and an after market bumper with D-ring tabs that I will be using to mount the tow bar. To stay withing the tow bar specifications, this adapter is exactly what I needed. I was going to make one but for the price and delivery, it was a no brainer to buy. It's well made and well finished. Another picture in a review had my exact situation and made it easier to make up my mind. etrailer is one of the best on-line or box store customer service organizations that I have ever dealt with. The documentation, videos, shipping information all outstanding. Thanks 469574

The product has conflicting labels concerning allowable tongue weight. One label says 100 Lbs. and other says 200 lbs. Even 200 seems low for a 6000 Lb. tow capacity. Boats are commonly set-up at ten percent of load. I believe the on line listing said 200 Lb. tongue weight max. Which number is correct? Thanks. 599751


Comments
Per Roadmaster, the # RM-076 has a 200 lb tongue weight capacity. Be aware, that this item isnt meant for trailer towing use. Its meant to flat tow a vehicle. If its used for a hitch mounted accessory, the tongue weight capacity of the hitch will be reduced by half.

I'm giving this 5 stars for build quality but only 3 stars for design. I would have loved if this came directly down instead of reaching out. It essentially added a foot to the tow bar setup I am using due to the rather large offset between the upper and lower pin hole locations. As usual Etrailer shipping was fast and well packed. 726158

I received the Roadmaster High-Low Adaptor Hitch Mount in 2 days. It is exactly how it was described and pictured in the catalog. It is heavy duty with a 6000 lb tow rating. My tow vehicle is 4400 lbs so I don't anticipate any problems. I haven't used it yet, other than inserting it into the receiver. It will solve the tow bar level issue with the tow vehicle. 661393

Very well made, sturdy! I am using on my pickup truck to lower the hitch to adapt the mobility scooter carrier. Without it the slope of the ramp was too steep; with the 6” drop, the ramp pitch is perfect, allowing one person to roll-on the scooter with no problems. Thank goodness, a device that really works! 646362

  • Will Hitch Adapter With 200 lb Tongue Weight Capacity Work for Higher Weight
    We may have an option for you, though the High-Low Adapter for Tow Bars # RM-076 you referenced has a tongue weight capacity of 200 lbs and using a bike rack and bikes with a weight that exceeds that is not recommended as it does not have the strength of stability. Using any hitch adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, so please keep that in mind. What may work for you is the MaxxTow Dual Hitch Extender for 2" Trailer Hitches # MT70070 which has a...

If the 10-1/2 inch measurement that you took of the hitch receiver on your Atlas is from the ground to the top of the inside of your 2 inch receiver, like the Curt # C13366, then you will need a ball mount that has at least a 5 inch rise as rise and drop measurements typically...

This adapter has a 6 inch rise and is designed to work with 2 inch receivers. For an adapter with a 4 inch rise I recommend part # RM-048-4.

    When you're flat towing a vehicle, you want the tow bar to be within 3 inches plus or minus of level. If you're outside that range, you can use a High Low adapter to get you in range. Ideally, you'd be as close to level as possible, but as long as you're within 3 inches one way or the other, you should be fine. If you need a high-low adapter I've linked our selection.

  • Effects on Tongue Weight Capacity from Using Hitch Adapter/Extender
    Any hitch adapter/extender, including the Roadmaster # RM-076 which is intended primarily for flat towing a vehicle with a tow bar, will cause a loss of half of your hitch's rated tongue weight (TW)capacity. This occurs due to the load being further away from the hitch, which applies more leverage on the hitch tube. If your hitch's safety sticker says, for example, that it has a 500-lb TW rating then this instantly becomes 250-lbs if an adapter/extender is used. This item itself carries...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2008 Kia Rondo
    All of the trailer hitches for the 2008 Kia Rondo are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. We will not have anything that you can use to raise your bike rack. What I recommend is a compatible bike rack that has a rise in the shank if your bike rack does not. Class I trailer hitches can only carry a maximum of 2 bikes. For a compatible rack with a 3 inch rise in the shank you can use the Swagman Trailhead, # S63360. If you are carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar...

  • High Low Adapter Recommendation for Toyota Sienna Bike Rack
    Sounds like you'd want the Roadmaster High Low Adapter part # RM-076 which can give you a 6 inch rise. It also will work as a hitch extender like you have already too. I attached a picture that shows dimensions of this adapter for you to check out as well. You should note that adapters like this (and the one you currently have) cut the capacity of the hitch they are installed in by 50 percent.

  • Is Shank of the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 Solid or Hollow
    The shank of the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 is hollow so your anti-rattle device that is designed to fit a hollow shank will fit it and work well.

  • Availability of a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter to Provide 4-1/2 Inches of Rise
    MaxxTow doesn't make an adapter exactly like what you mention, but we might be able to find something that would work for you. A dual hitch adapter, like part # MT70070 might be a good alternative. This adapter provides about a 6 inch rise, or Curt offers the # D-192 that also might be a good choice. Keep in mind, using either of these adapters will reduce the tongue weight capacity (maximum amount of weight that can be suspended from hitch) by half. For instance, say you're wanting...

  • Fit and Compatibility of Roadmaster 6 Inch Drop Receiver for Flat Towing a 2012 Jeep Liberty
    Yes, the Roadmaster # RM-076 will work for flat towing your 2012 Jeep Liberty. The curb weight of your Liberty is under 6K. If you have modified your vehicle or plan on towing it with a full load you will want to make sure that the curb weigh doesn't exceed the 6,000lbs towing weight, if it does then I would instead recommend the # RM-048-6. I have linked both products to this page for your convenience.

  • High-Low Hitch Adapters for Use with Tow Bar
    The two ends of any tow bar should be within 3-inches above or below dead-level. Any more height difference than that can lead to the arms binding, which could affect tracking. We offer many 2-inch high/low hitch adapters, all shown on the linked page, that make it easy to level your tow bar for best performance. Just measure the height difference between the hitch and D-rings and choose the adapter that gets you to a level position by providing the appropriate rise or drop. For...

  • Can the 6 Rise/Drop Roadmaster High-Low Adapter be Used with the Swagman XTC4 Bike Rack
    If you were to fully load the Swagman XTC4 # S64665 with the max bike weight capacity of 35 lbs each then the weight of the bikes and the rack itself would be 199 lbs so technically this will work. With that being said, the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter # RM-076 will reduce the tongue weight rating of your trailer hitch so unless your trailer hitch is rated for at least 400 lbs tongue weight you will be overloading your trailer hitch. Also, placing your fully loaded bike rack further out...

    Like you pointed out, you will need to level everything to flat tow your vehicle behind your RV. To provide this leveling, you often need a High-Low hitch adapter.

To land in the 3 inch "sweet spot", you will need an adapter like the Roadmaster High-Low Adapter Item # RM-076.
