Video Transcript for Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard Installation - 2018 Lincoln MKX

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Lincoln MKX we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard, part number RM-4000. When we go to flat tow a vehicle, we have a lot of issues with road debris flying up and hitting the front of our vehicle. Whether it be rocks or gravel or anything else, we don't want the paint to be scratched, let alone a headlight broken. Our Guardian's going to protect the front of our vehicle and make sure the paint stays in nice condition, as well as the headlights.Our Guardian's going to be made out of a molded polyethylene material with a hollow core, so it is going to be extremely durable but also very lightweight. Now, our Guardian is going to be compatible with all Roadmaster base plates that have the quick disconnect style cross bar, which is sold separately. The center section of our Guardian is going to be attached directly to the base plate on a bracket, and the two side panels are going to have a connecting rod that's going to connect those to the center.Now, because of its design, we're going to be able to remove it in a matter of seconds and actually fold the sides in for a smaller footprint so we can store it.

Now that we've seen when our Guardian looks like and gone over some of the features, let's show you how easy it is to get it installed. To get the Guardian in place, we're going to have to remove our quick disconnect bracket that's attached to our base plate. I'm going to take a 3/4 inch socket and wrench and remove these bolts here. With the nuts and washers removed out the back, we're going to want to hold on to the lock nut, flat washer, and nut from each side, but we are going to be replacing the bolts.Now, on our bracket we should have a plate that sits up front. We're going to set this aside for just right now.

Then we can take our Guardian bracket and you'll notice it's going to have two oval holes that are going to match up with our bracket. We can take our safety plate, slide it over on top of that. We're going to take the longer bolts that come with our Guardian and we're going to go through the plate, our Guardian bracket, and then finally the quick disconnect bracket. We'll do that for both sides, sliding a bolt through. Then we're going to loosely reinstall a flat washer, lock washer, and a hex nut onto the back side of each one.Now, it's important that we leave these just hand tight.

You might want to leave them a little loose so that there's plenty of movement in the quick disconnect bar, as well as our Guardian bracket. We're going to have to test fit our cross bar and make sure that it goes on and off nice and easy. We can take our cross bar and we're just going to get it in position. We want to make any kind of adjustments to our brackets that we may need, whether they be sliding them to the left or right, make sure that we can put our cross bar on and take it off nice and easily and that it's not getting bound up.We're going to go ahead and leave this loosely in place now and we'll test fit our Guardian. We're going to want to grab the center section of our Guardian, and that's going to be the one that has the metal legs on each end.

We'll get one leg in and then just kind of adjust the brackets as needed to make sure that it fits and it goes on and off nice and easily. Once we have it in, we may need to kind of push or pull on these brackets here and make sure that it's not too tight, but it's also not too loose to where it's moving around too much.Now, whenever we're test fitting it, I do want to mention that there is going to be a little bit of tension even if we have it lined up, because there is these spring loaded clips that hold it in place. You also want to make sure that your little wing nuts here are loose, because that will prevent it from going down all the way.With everything test fitted and looking good, we're going to go ahead and remove that center panel of our Guardian, set it aside. We'll remove the cross bar, and then we can come back with a 3/4 inch wrench, socket, and torque wrench and we're going to torque our hardware down, and we'll find that specification in our instructions. Just want to be extremely careful while you're doing this that you don't move the bracket, because then we're going to have to make additional adjustments. We'll go ahead and torque the other side as well.We can put our cross bar back in place and put our safety pins in. We can line up the center section of our Guardian. You want to make sure that it goes all the way through, and that the pin holes down here at the bottom are sticking out so we can get our pins in place. At the bottom here I'm going to take the pin and make sure it locks all the way around. Then we can tighten up that thumb screw on the back side, making sure it's going to just have a little bit of tension. We don't really need to crank on these too much, you just want to make sure they're nice and snug, hand tight, which is going to keep any kind of movement down. We'll do the same thing on the other side.Now we can take our side pieces here, and you'll notice that these pieces are going to just kind of slide together like this. It'll have a slight curve to it, and we can see that all that hinge point is going to line up together. We can take our connecting rod and we're going to want to take the somewhat pointed end, start feeding it down, making sure it's going through each channel. May have to kind of wiggle it back and forth to make sure it goes through all the way. Then we can just rotate it out of the way, and that'll keep our side panel in place. We'll go ahead and do that for the other side as well.With both panels in place, you want to double check those thumb screws, make sure they're nice and secure, then we can hook up our tow bar and hit the road. One of the nice things about our Guardian is that it does remove extremely easily and is easy to store. We can simply just pull those pins out, loosen up those thumb screws, and we can pull the whole assembly off and set it aside. That'll finish up your look at the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard, part number RM-4000 on our 2018 Lincoln MKX.

I received the RM-400 on time, watched the installation video and installed it. I haven't used it yet but I'm confident it will do the job keeping the front end of our car protected while towing behind the motorhome. However, the box didn't have the thumb screws. 696325

I won't have a chance to actually use this for a couple of weeks, but I have no reason to doubt I will be highly pleased with it as others have been. For now, I just want everyone to know what a FANTASTIC place etrailer is to do business with. My Guardian arrived much sooner than I expected. This is a company that really delivers. Best company I have ever dealt with. I will update my review later. If you are going to get this, I highly recommend the Stowawy which allows you to easily store the Guardian on the hitch receiver on your motorhome. 109952

Once you install the guardian carrier installing the Guardian is a breeze. The important step in the installation of the carrier and the guardian is driving your car onto the dolly to make adjustments to the carrier and guardian reference your vehicle. After you get it all together lt looks good and works. I'd buy it again. 691609

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ4 and EZ5 Base Plates for 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • Both the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-4 and EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521448-5 will fit on your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The primary difference between the two designs is the way they attach to the tow bar. The EZ5 does not use the quick-connect crossbar which provides a cleaner look, but prevents you from using some accessories that mount to the crossbar such as a Rock Guard like the Roadmaster # RM-4000. If you are at all interested in using a rock guard or protective...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited, Latitude or Latitude Plus
  • For your 2019 Jeep Cherokee you'll need to first start with a base plate kit. For that you'd want the part # RM-521452-4. This fits the Latitude, Latitude Plus and Limited models. If you have an Overland, Trailhawk, or Trailhawk Elite you'd want the # RM-521451-5. Next you'll need a tow bar which for that the Roadmaster Sterling part # RM-576 is your best option for if you have the Latitude or Limited models since you'll need the included crossbar.

The Direct-Connect style means you can attach a tow bar to this like the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar part # RM-677 without the need for a crossbar to go between the two arms. The Crossbar-Style style means you will need the crossbar that goes between the two arms like the Roadmaster...

  • Can a 2014 Kia Sorento GDI be Towed with a Tow Dolly
  • I took a look at the online version of your owner's manual and it looks like you can use a tow dolly for your 2014 Kia Sorento GDI as long as it is 2WD. If you have a 4WD then it needs to be towed with all 4 wheels off of the ground. I do recommend checking with your owner's manual or your nearest Kia dealer to confirm this. For tow dolly applications we have the Roadmaster Tow Dolly # RM-2050-1 and # RM-2000-1. The major differences between these 2 options is that the former has a weight...

  • How to Protect a Toad from Chips or Scratches While in Tow
  • The Snoblock Snow and Ice Windshield and Wiper Blade Cover part # 288-06603 is not designed to be used on a moving vehicle. If used in this fashion then the chances of it tearing would be increased therefore I cannot recommend this. However, we do still have multiple ways of protecting your toad while in tow and not just the windshield portion either. For this, I recommend taking a look at Sentry Deflector part # DM9523135 if you have a Demco Tow Bar, the Guardian Rock Guard part # RM-4000...

  • How to Protect Flat Towed Vehicle's Windshield/Paint
  • We have great products designed for exactly what you are looking for, but the Classic Accessories part # CA10003 that you referenced would not stay attached while the vehicle is moving. Instead you'd need something like the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard part # RM-4000 which is designed to attach to a Roadmaster flat towing setup. If you could get back to me with the brand of flat towing setup you have I can check to see what the best solution would be for you. For example, if you have...

  • Parts Needed for Flat Towing a 2014 Chevy Equinox with a All Terrain Tow Bar
  • To flat tow your 2014 Chevy Equinox you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, vehicle tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, possibly a high-low adapter, and a few additional accessories. The base plate kit that works with both the Falcon All Terrain # RM-522 you referenced and your Guardian Rock Guard # RM-4000 is the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-523160-4. For safety cables I recommend part # RM-643 which are coiled to keep them from touching the ground and...

The difference is the EZ5 has the streamlined design that removes the need for the quick-disconnect crossbar.

The kit attaches directly to the tow bar whereas with the EZ4 you have to use the crossbar. Not having to use the crossbar makes connecting and disconnecting a bit more easy, but the trade-off is that you can't use a Rock Guard like the #...

For example, if you have a Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit then you can use the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard part # RM-4000 which measures 26" tall x 71" wide.

  • What Is Difference Between Roadmaster Tow Defender # RM-4700 And # RM-4750
  • The difference between the # RM-4700 and the # RM-4750 is being able to use them with your base plates. If you have the crossbar on your base plates you will need part # RM-4700. The RM-4750 is not compatible with other style base plates. Since you said you have the Roadmaster Guardian, part # RM-4000, the same issue applies. It is compatible with the base plates that have a crossbar and will not work if you have other style base plates.

  • As you mentioned in your question, both the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521567-4 and EZ5 # RM-521567-5 Base Plate Kits are confirmed to fit your 2014 Honda CR-V. The primary difference between the two models is that the EZ5 does not use a quick-connect crossbar to attach to the tow bar. This will in turn provide a cleaner, less obtrusive look. The drawback, however, and why I tend to recommend the EZ4 model, is that the design will not accommodate many accessories that mount to the crossbar...

  • Rock Guard for Blue Ox Tow Bar and American Coach Tradition Motorcoach
  • I recommend going with a Blue Ox KarGard, # BX8870, because you will not have to adapt anything and it is priced a little lower than the Roadmaster guard. The Roadmaster Guardian, # RM-4000, is designed to fit Roadmaster base plates and tow bars and has not been tested for fit on Blue Ox products.

  • Recommended Rock Guard for Use with Blue Ox Tow Bar
  • The Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard # RM-4000 is designed to mount on any Roadmaster tow bar that has quick-disconnects. Since this item has not been tested with a Blue Ox tow bar I cannot guarantee compatibility. It might work but modifying it will void your warranty. I recommend using a Blue Ox product like their KarGard Towed Vehicle Protector # BX8870. This will work with Blue Ox tow bars, excluding the Acclaim. It is also not compatible with the Blue Ox AutoStop braking systems....

The top, in width, is 15-1/2 inches but at the bottom is 18-1/8 inches. They are both 26-7/8 inches high as well. When open, the guard will measure 68-1/2 inches wide at the top, 73-3/4 inches wide at the bottom, and will be 26-7/8 inches tall. When the guard is folded up it is 37-1/2 inches wide and still stays 26-1/2 inches...

The better option for you to enable use of both the tow bar and your Rock Guardian # RM-4000 is to use the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521451-4.

  • Windshield Protection Recommendations For Flat Towing

To protect the windshield from rocks and debris that may make its way over the Guardian, I recommend checking out the Roadmaster Tow Defender, # RM-4700.

The Roadmaster Tow Defender, part # RM-4700 stretches between the RV and the towed vehicle, deflecting rocks downward before they can damage your vehicle. The Tow defender attaches to the tow bar and the quick disconnects on the vehicle base plates. We also have the Rock Tamers Mud Flap system, part # ERT00108. These flaps install on the tow bar, and are adjustable.
