Video Transcript for RoadMaster Falcon Tow Bar Installation - 2013 Honda CR-V

All right today on this 2013 Honda CR-V, we're going to install part number RM-522. This is the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar. First step is to go ahead and install our quick disconnects onto the car side. These parts will bolt onto the base plate that's already been installed. Now these are labeled, driver's side of the car, and then our accompanying hardware. We've got this plate, which will go over the top with a bolt, one on each side.

This will go on to your base plate, which will get a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. Same on both sides. Then, we'll do the same thing on the passenger side. Now we'll just leave these finger tight for now. Just enough where everything holds its shape. Now again, leaving it finger tight, we'll go ahead and put our crossbar into place.

Just go ahead and line up with the pins on top and on the bottom. We'll move it around as needed till it fits together. Try to get it even as you can on both sides. Then we'll go ahead and hand tighten our hardware back here. Let's go ahead and do a quick test run with our crossbar, make sure we can remove it.

Let's go ahead and tighten down our remaining 2 bolts. Let's do one more check. Then we'll go ahead and torque these bolts down as specified in the instructions. Now these parts will stay attached to our base plate. In this application, we take our base plate, it comes with it. Now we'll go ahead and put our crossbar into place.

Then we'll put our locking pins on top. We'll go ahead and put our locking pins into place, matching the picture. If it snaps tight, that's what you want. Let's go ahead work with our tow bar now. We'll go ahead and slide it into the hitch. Line up the hitch pin holes and install the hitch pin that comes with it. Now to release it, we'll go ahead and push it back a little bit, and pull back on this latch and that releases it. When we need to store it, just like that. Also, we can tilt it from one side or the other for storage when you leave it on the RV. Let's go ahead and extend our tow bar to our car. We'll go ahead and rotate it back up, unlatch it, pull it down. We'll go ahead and tilt it to one side and pull out the arms, and this will go into our crossbar. Now we'll go ahead and put our pin into place for this junction or joint. We line up the hole in the pin with this hole in the plate right here. We'll take our safety pin, just like the ones on top. Make sure it snaps into place. We'll do this on both sides. OK now this is all the parts that come with the Falcon All-Terrain tow bar. Now we still need to add some safety cables. We're going to use part number RM-645, the Single Hook Safety Cables, also from Roadmaster. Here's one of our safety cables, there's 2 that come with the kit. You can see it's just one hook. This end will thread through the space provided for on our tow bar. We'll use one of these quick links that comes with the kit, and we'll attach this to our base plate. When you're done towing for the day, you can store the tow bar with these cables on the inside as well. One side is done, let's do the other side. Now when we connect our safety cables to our hitch, we want to cross them just like this. Just go ahead and hook them up. All right, now see how the clamp can't work on the hitch here We're going to have to use an extra part. To do that, we're going to use some extra quick links from Roadmaster, part number RM-910022. Now these are rated at 6,000 pounds, just like the cables are. All that's left over is to hook up our break-away cable, and also our electrical cable, which will vary from installation to installation. To release it we just pull up on this lever then we can easily release the arm. Let's go ahead and make the rest of our hook-ups, and take it for a test drive. With that, that'll finish it for the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar, part number RM-522 from Roadmaster on our 2013 Honda CR-V. .

I ordered both the Front and Rear anti-sway bar upgrade kits. The install on my 2016 E450 was quite simple, and accomplished easily in my driveway. The kit for the front was a simple remove and replace the OEM bar. The rear kit required drilling two holes to accomodate new mounting points. Other than that, it was also simply a matter of removing a few bolts, and replacing the factory bar. Some minor nits associated with the kits. The washers included in the kit for the rear didn't fit the bolts, also included in the kit. And, the instructions for the front kit didn't include torque specs for the bolts. A quick trip to the local hardware store, and a call to Roadmaster tech support solved the respective problems. Oddly, the Roadmaster tech guy read me THEIR instruction over the phone, and they DID include the necessary specs. I've intalled these kits on two different motor homes now. They work GREAT, and I highly recommend them if you're towing and it feels like the vehicle has a bit more roll than you like. HOWEVER, I would note that the difficulty of installation can vary widely. If you're planning to install yourself, I highly recommend downloading the instructions in advance, and crawling under your vehicle to check on accessibility. For the E450 kit, you'll have to be able to get under there with a drill, and not drill through any cables/lines that may run along the frame rails. You'll also have to be able to get a (typically somewhat large) torque wrench up in there. My experience suggests this can be nearly impossible on some vehicles without access to a grease pit or lift. Good luck! 302819

I have ordered several variations of RoadMaster towing accessories from etrailer over the years. etrailer is always helpful when I have a question, if they don't know the answer, they will send you where you can find the correct parts for your needs. That was the case with this order, my previous hook-up used the EZ hook safety cables. I bought a new Jeep to tow and the new base plate does not accept the EZ Hook Cables. After a conversation with etrailer customer service, they had me call RoadMaster for the solution RM-645 must be used. Ordered from etrailer and in just a few days the cables came in the mail. (I thought etrailer should have given free shipping, after all the products I have bought for over$100.00, but I guess not...) even with economy shipping, the cables arrived in short order. I am one of many satisfied etrailer customers, I'm sure. ron 288374

This was part of many Roadmaster components I ordered from etrailer.com to set up my 2014 Honda CRV as a toad. Etrailer's website is excellent and their review videos and installation videos are very helpful. Their tech service department is excellent as well. These safety cables are well made and fit well in the channels of the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain tow bar. Note the etrailer video shows having to order extra rings to mount to the motorhome side. This is not necessary if you have a new Roadmaster baseplate with wide hole safety cabel attachment points. The looped ends and rings provided on the safety cab els should mount to the motorhome (and stay with the tow bar when disconnected and folded). The other end with the spring hinged hooks easily hook onto the baseplate with wide holes for the hooks. 234537

Got the non-coiled safety cables so I could use the channels in the Roadmaster Falcon tow bar and keep the cables up off the ground. Allows full range of motion of the Rv, Toad, an tow bar. Hopefully I will never have to "really" test these, but they look solid... 223186

  • Since the guides on the Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar # RM-522 are enclosed, I would go with straight cables. The coiled may have a tendency to want to coil up and that would not work with the Falcon. The cables I recommend are part # RM-645. These are 64-inch long straight cables and will work well with the Falcon tow bar.

  • Flat Towing a 2016 Jeep Wrangler with EAG Bumper Behind a Motorhome
  • The bumper manufacturer would have to tell you whether or not the bumper can be used to flat tow your 2006 Jeep Wrangler. Assuming that it can then the capacity would presumably be the weight of the vehicle at the least. Since it is a bumper designed for a winch that would mean it and the D-rings would be used for vehicle recovery which would be at least the weight of the vehicle. But if there is some other capacity then EAG would be able to tell you. If you get the green light then...

  • Can I Flat Tow a 2015 Honda Fit EX with Manual Transmission Behind A Motorhome
  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2015 Honda Fit EX with manual transmission behind a motorhome. There is slight differences between the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521569-4 and EZ5 # RM-521569-5. The main difference is the EZ4 is more universal and will have more fit options. Both will feature Twistlock series brackets that are virtually invisible. Since you will be flat towing your 2015 Honda Fit EX manual transmission, you will need the following items: a tow bar, safety cables, wiring and...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Ford Focus Behind a Motor Home
  • There are 5 components needed to flat tow your 2012 Ford Focus and those are a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system. The base plate for your vehicle is the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit, # RM-524430-5. You will also need safety cables, # RM-645, as they are required by law when flat towing a vehicle. You should not have a problem, but check your tow bar and make sure it is compatible with EZ5 style base plates. If it is not compatible,...

  • Base Plate Kit for Flat Towing a 2012 Ford Edge with Eco Boost
  • The correct base plate kit for towing your 2012 Ford Edge with Eco-Boost is the Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit, # 4408-1, if your vehicle does not have Adaptive Cruise Control. If your 2012 Edge does not have the Eco Boost option, but does have adaptive cruise control, then you would want # 524426-1. If your 2012 Edge has both Adaptive Cruise Control and Eco-Boost, we do not have a base plate install kit that will work on your vehicle. I do not believe both options are available with...

  • Can the Roadmaster # RM-645 Safety Cables Be Installed with the Hooks on the Base Plate Side
  • If you have the room on your base plates connection to securely attach the hook, then there will be no issue with using the Roadmaster # RM-645 Safety Hooks. I found another option for you. The Roadmaster 64 Inch Double Hook Safety Cables, # RM-646, is the better option for you. Theses cables have the same features as the # RM-645 cables that you referenced, but this set includes hooks with spring loaded latches on both ends of the safety cable. These cable will make connecting and...

  • Flat Towing Accessories for 2001 Ford Focus
  • In my research, I found that manual transmission-equipped Focus models are capable of being flat towed without modification. I was not able to find any information about automatic transmission models, however. If your Focus has an automatic transmission, please check with your owners manual or with Ford for more information. If you should confirm that your vehicle is indeed capable of being flat towed, you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution so that...
