Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screening Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screening, part number RM-4700. Now, here's what it's going to look like once it's installed. There's a mesh material. It's going to allow the water to flow through it, and keep our dirt and debris from flying from the back of our RV, and coming in contact with our vehicle. It has heavy-duty struts; they're going to aid when you're turning your vehicle so we don't have any bending action, and it's going to keep it taught against the back of our RV. Our mesh is cut out around the pivot points to prevent it getting pinched any place that we have movement, and allowing us to run our cables through it without any interference, and it also has an access point for our wiring to come through on the back side as well. It's designed for a two-inch hitch to slide over our ball mount or receive, and you can adjust the tension by sliding it back and forth and adjusting the set screws that are on either side.

You can also adjust the height depending on where you need it to be on your RV, and we'll have two adjustments for our tension on the rear side as well. You'll get out your clip. You can adjust it forward or to the second hole to tighten it up. Now, if you want to stow it away when you're done, you take out these two clips and take our bower 00:01:48. We can roll it up, and it comes with four clips that are elastic. You just place them around it.

Now, it'll fit nice and secure to the back of your coach. Now, when you're ready to use it, you're just going to remove your straps, roll it out into position, and it does have multiple holes for adjustment depending on the width of your tow bar, place our pins, and we're ready to go. Now, this will also work in unison with the Guardian Rock Guard, part number RM-4000, to help keep dirt and debris off your vehicle. The two compliment each other very nicely, and they are designed to fit together. And that's going to do it for a look at the Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screening, part number RM-4700.

I am glad you have contacted me for my thoughts I really like the product but find it is too long from the motorhome to the tow vehicle, and we have had to put clips on it to stop it from flopping while towing. I also find the product very heavy to lift, as I have had surgery on my right wrist, and do believe it could be made from lighter structure material. I also have purchased a road master invisbrake system and can’t say enough good about that product, I really like how it works and would recommend it to anyone, it is well worth the price. Thanks 477475

Good design, well engineered, fit together well, only issue I had was my exhaust on DP extends out the back, so I needed some more clearance which I got when I added the 2" hitch raise to level the RV to the tow vehicle. This Lang with the rock guard will save the road. All products were shipped quickly and the customer service was great. Also I saved about $100.00 by shopping with etrailer vs other well known suppliers. 209654

The protector screening is well made. the instructions were not very clear nor were the supporting pictures but the schematic view made it fairly easy to assemble and install with some figuring out. after finishing the install I saw that with the current height setting of the support arms, my RV ladder would rub the left support arm and therefore quickly wear out the fabric, so I took it apart and dropped it down to the bottom holes and its better now. its a shame there is not an easier way to remove it from the RV than to remove the entire roadmaster hitch from the RV. that is a downside and I may well modify it for that. All in all, this will prevent much of the rock damage in the future and will hopefully prevent me from acquiring so much road tar from pothole repairs. I recommend it and will update this review after I actually use it on the tow car in a few weeks.. 179861

This product is easy to install as long as you follow the enclosed instructions. I have not used the Tow Defender today. However, I have friends that have used it with great results. Typically, on a class A motorhome you have mud guards that should protect your tow vehicle but they actually create a bigger problem. I purchased this Tow Defender to compliment the Roadmaster Shield which I currently own. The problem with the shield is that rocks bounce off the shield and hit the rear of the motorhome. The Tow Defender Screen will stop this. 172125

I would have rated it 5 stars had it not been for the problem with one of the extension rod locking latches. After about 8 months I noticed a clucking sound while turning. I determined that one of the extension rods was not locking causing the clunk. I contacted Roadmaster and they explained that the latch needed to be tighten. Once I performed the adjustment it worked as designed, however from the rod expanding and contracting it ripped the nylon Defender Protective Screen and now I have a damaged screen that will cost me $200 to replace. 548951

Great customer service. Three days after I order the shield it arrived. A customer representative called me twice to let me know when it was shipped and a follow up to verify it had arrived. Haven't gone on a trip yet, but easily installation. The tow bar I attached the shield to was the Falcon/All Terrain (6000 unit). The shield model number was Roadmaster Tow Defender (4700). 309605

Review from a similar Roadmaster Tow Defender in Accessories and Parts


This product does a good job of protecting our tow vehicle. It keeps road sluge from damaging paint and windshield. The best part is that it stays on the motorhome when not in use. It can be hooked up for towing by one person. Just what we need to protect our new truck. 327493

Review from a similar Roadmaster Tow Defender in Accessories and Parts


Product arrived quickly. It was well constructed. Watched the etrailer video and read through the instructions and started to install. The 2 3/8 by 1" bolts and nuts were missing otherwise I would have given it a 5 rating. Luckily I only live 1 mile from the hardware store so I went ahead and got 4 because they were only 35 cents each. Rest of installation went great and test drive was good looks like it should do the job. Ready for the trip and will follow up on performance. 525759

Works Perfect. One 1200 mile round trip from SC to Florida and Two 2000 mile round trips to Michigan. No noticeable chips on the Wrangler. Easy to roll up and unroll for use.

Review from a similar Roadmaster Tow Defender in Accessories and Parts


I wrongly ordered the RM-4700 model and had to exchange it for the RM-4750. Michelle at etrailer was excellent in providing a return authorization and reorder of the correct RM-4750 model. I received a full refund minus only $21.00 for return shipping which is certainly more than reasonable since this was my mistake. New product arrived promptly, but I was missing two 3/8"x1" bolts that were supposed to be included. Obviously, this was a mistake on the manufacturer's part not etrailer. Fortunately, I have a good selection of bolts and hardware and I had the exact type of bolts needed. Product has been installed and seems to be working as promised. 321529

Review from a similar Roadmaster Tow Defender in Accessories and Parts


The product works well and is constructed well. I gave it 4 stars because it mentions about being to close to the exhaust and causing damage to the fabric but doesn't talk about other possible concerns. I have a Tiffin 2018 Allegro Red motorhome. My ladder on the back of my motorhome interfered with proper operation of this part. My solution ending up being to cut off the lower section of my ladder. I have attached pictures so hopefully someone can see this as an issue before purchasing. 647695

I placed a big order with etrailer to flat tow my Jeep.

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.
