Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-751439

Avoid damage to your vehicle by ensuring that your supplemental braking system is properly positioned and working effectively. Kit activates your RV monitoring system to alert you when the brakes of your towed car are being applied.


Features:

  • Activates motorhome brake-monitoring system whenever brake pedal in towed car is applied
    • Ensures that the supplemental braking system is functioning properly
  • Works great for any application that does not have a tow position in the ignition
  • Wires directly into towed car's fuse box for constant current
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • 12 Volts
  • Application: custom fit for your vehicle


By tapping into your towed car's brake-light switch, this kit allows your RV's monitoring system to alert you whenever the brake pedal of your towed car is being applied.

Other systems operate according to whether the air cylinder is extended and provide no indication of what is happening with the pedal itself.

If your supplemental braking system is improperly installed, it may be continuously pressing on the pedal, impeding it from fully retracting and possibly causing damage to your vehicle's tires and braking system.

With Roadmaster's Stop Light Switch Kit, you will always know when the brake is being depressed, and you will avoid costly damage.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at Roadmaster's line of custom stoplight switch kits. You'll want to refer to our fit guide for the appropriate switch kit for your vehicle.Here on our motor home we have our indicator light that's connected to our stoplight switch. When this light illuminates, we know that our braking system that is installed is applying the brake pedal in our towed vehicle. And we're going to get this signal thanks to our stoplight switch. Here when I hit the brake in our motor home, the light's illuminated so I know that our braking system is working properly.This stoplight switch is going to provide you with an additional brake stop signal. This is important if you're flat towing a vehicle that doesn't have a brake signal when in tow mode.

Without a signal you'll have no way of monitoring whether or not your brake pedal is being depressed. You can use this stoplight switch to connect to the indicator that comes with your supplemental braking system so you can verify for sure that your brake pedal's being depressed when you hit the brakes in your motor home.In most instances it'll be well hidden or blend in with the rest of the wiring down below so you won't even notice it. Here you can barely even glimpse the switch itself. And the kit comes with everything you need to get it installed. This includes the switch, the wiring, the fuse and the custom bracket that's specifically made for it to mount right onto your vehicle.

The bracket's really what makes it custom for your vehicle. It allows the switch to mount seamlessly and easily adjusts to the contour of your brake pedal.A less common use is for a brake controller. If your vehicle doesn't have a compatible brake signal for your brake controller then you can install one of these and get that signal for your brake controller to easily hook up to your trailer.And that completes our look at Roadmaster's line of custom stoplight switch kits.

The stop light switch kit is performing as expected. The installation is a little more difficult than what is shown. I ended up installing the switch to the bracket and then installing the bracket to the car. I have not replaced the cover-up panel under the dash installed in the car at the factory as it was damaged when removing it. 446939

This switch was a perfect fit for my 2017 Equinox. I followed the instructions on the etrailer video and it worked just perfect.

Your customer service leaves nothing lacking, and this follow-up from you is so out of character for the many web sites I have purchased from over the years. I am impressed by you and your company. I bought the tow bar and the brake system for my Equinox, and installed them my self (I am 70 years old) - and with your provided instructions and video, I had no problems (even though I was surprised by the number of parts and detail that went into the assemblies). Both systems have worked very well, with no problems. I am completely satisfied with them, and have told my friends and traveling acquaintances about your company. Thanks for your follow-up! 382386

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems


  • Location of Stop Light Switch Wire on 2017 Chevrolet Equinox
  • The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox has a brake pedal sensor which makes it difficult to locate and use the stop light switch to install our # ETBC7 kit. You'll need to access the BCM (body control module) under the dash which will likely be near the driver's left knee. You'll want to use a circuit tester like # 3808 to confirm you have the correct wire that only shows power when the brake pedal is pressed. Another option is to create your own stop light switch using # RM-751439. The kit is...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2016-2017 GMC Terrain or Chevy Equinox
  • We have everything you need to pull your new GMC Terrain or Chevy Equinox behind your RV with all 4 wheels on the ground. To do this you will need a base plate kit, a tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution, and a supplemental braking system. These two vehicles are extremely similar so the needed parts will be the same for either option. Starting with the base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-523184-5 if the vehicle does not have adaptive cruise control...

With this system on your vehicle you will need to add the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751439, which allows the RV monitoring system on the Roadmaster 9700 work properly, and the 12V Outlet Kit # RM-9332 to provide power to the unit.

  • It is recommended to install the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751439 on your 2017 Chevrolet Equinox to ensure that the LED notification works properly for the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO # SM99251. If you can find a wire that is solely dedicated to the brake light then you can use the method that comes in the instructions for the DUO but we have found that it is difficult to locate this wire.

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.

If your owners manual confirms that the Equinox is able to be flat towed, I have the following recommendations to get your towing started. You will need the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1689 along with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365. This comes with the safety chains needed. For your tow...

You will also need the 12 Volt Outlet Kit, 20 amps # RM-9332. GM does require removing a fuse (#32 on V6 or ABS on 4 cylinder) to help as you stated, but I recommend instead using a fuse bypass switch (# RM-76517 for 4 cylinder or # RM76511 for V6).

  • First, if you are not using the stop light switch kit # RM-751439 it is required for proper functioning of the Even Brake, # RM-9400, on the 2012 Equinox. It sounds as if the switch, if it is being used, is either not hooked up properly or the wiring between it and the monitor in the motor home is not connected. When it does its test and presses the brake pedal, it is not sensing the brake switch kit. The fuse issue is a common complaint but there is a solution. Just install a fuse bypass,...

They told me that you need to check the green wire that is coming out of the # RM-751452 switch. You should only show current when the brake pedal is depressed. If you are not showing current, then the switch is probably bad or it has shorted out and needs to be replaced.

For a tow bar, I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha, # BX7365, which slide into your RV's trailer hitch receiver so you don't have to use a ball mount, and the swivel function makes it easy to to connect your tow bar and vehicle.

This comes with the safety chains needed. For your tow bar wiring, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267.

I assume that since you previously flat towed the Terrain that you have a tow bar and safety cables but I will make some recommendations just in case you need those items as well. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. You can also use coiled safety cables # RM-643. For...
