Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-751449

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:

  • Application: custom fit for your vehicle
  • 12 Volts


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.

Instructions in the kit and video on the website were very complete and made for a very easy installation. Suggestion to Roadmaster on the bracket....make some sort of positive location tab for the bracket because the location is only made secure by the tightening of the bolt. Also, the way the Jeep bracket that you bolt to is designed, there's no way to get a wrench or socket to hold the backside bolt head. Maybe come up with something to keep it from spinning. 544360

Upon the recommendation of one of your towing specialists, I ordered every component that I needed to flat tow my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee behind my 2013 Newmar Bay Star motorhome. I got the necessary Roadmaster tow bar and other accessories plus the SMI Stay-IN-Play braking system. I have towed over 5000 miles so far without any significant issues. Hook up is straight-forward and takes about 15 minutes to complete. I couldn't be happier with the towing experience! 428765

Do you have a question about this Tow Bar Braking System?


  • All Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • There are a number of parts you're going to need in order to do this, starting with compatible base plates. I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-521440-4 because the brackets will be hidden away so your Grand Cherokee can maintain a clean look. For a tow bar I recommend going with the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 because of how easy the tow bar is to connect to the base plates as well as its long arms, which make it easier to maneuver when towing; you will also need...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • For your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited I recommend starting with the Demco Tabless Base Plate Kit # DM9519291. Then you can use the Demco Commander Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 2" Hitch - 6,000 lbs # DM9511012 which has the included safety chains as well as the integrated adjustable head for proper fit. For your tow bar wiring I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 as well as the charge line kit # RM-156-25. This kit will allow you to...

  • Replacement Actuator for Atwood Actuator part # 82543
  • The closest option we have to replace your Atwood 82543 actuator is part # 8605001. However, it doesn't have the lockout like your Atwood does. For one with a lockout use # T4339720 but it's an electric lockout. It wires into the reverse light circuit on your truck through the trailer connector. I've attached videos of both actuators for you to take a look at.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2014-2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • In order to flat tow your Jeep Grand Cherokee behind an RV you need a base plate kit, a tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution, a supplemental braking system, and likely a high-low adapter. Starting with the base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521440-5. This kit is custom fit for your Grand Cherokee and features a hidden bracket design that provides a clean look when you aren't towing. Its black powder coat finish is durable and corrosion resistant.

  • You are correct that there are quite a few parts necessary to flat tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee behind your motorhome but I'll be happy to list everything you'll need. As you mentioned, you'll need base plates, and the Roadmaster EZ5 # RM-521440-5 is a confirmed fit for your Jeep so long as it is not an SRT-8 model, which since you listed this part I assume it is not. For a tow bar I recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520 which is out most popular option due to how easy it is...

  • Can the Monitor Light and CoachLink be Hooked to the Same Wire
  • For starters, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2015 Jeep Wrangler are very different vehicles in regards to flat-towing components so looking at installation videos on a Wrangler is just going to confuse you. The Grand Cherokee actually does not have an active stop light circuit so you will need to use the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751449. The Jeep Wrangler does have an active stop light switch circuit which is why you need to use the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit part...

  • Recommended Tow Bar and Other Parts to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • The tow bar I recommend is the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520. It's one of our most popular tow bars and you can't go wrong with it. It self aligns as you drive forward in your RV. It's also compatible with all Roadmaster base plate kits. The base plate kit I suggest is the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521440-4. It's designed specifically for your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. The arms are removable so they're not as noticeable as other kits can be. To power the Jeep's lights I suggest...

  • Comparing the Blue Ox Patriot III and Roadmaster Even Brake Systems for a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • Even though the Blue Ox Patriot II # BRK2016 and the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400 are very similar systems I recommend using the Patriot II. It is easier to set up, uses less power so it will take much longer for this system to drain your battery, and it doesn't require the use of additional parts so that it is compatible with your vehicle. Attached are some videos that you can reference for the installation. You will also want to install the 12 Volt Outlet Kit # RM-9332 for dedicated...

  • Recommended Flat Towing System for 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Diesel
  • The SRT-8 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the Street and Racing Technology model which has some engine performance upgrades you would be aware of if you had. Since you mentioned you have the Overland, I can confirm you do not have the SRT-8 version. So your Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-521440-5 are a fit for your vehicle. If you don't have the other flat towing components, I recommend the following to complete your system: Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount...

  • How to Find the Stop Light Circuit on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • For starters, have you checked for the brake controller adapter port under the drivers kick panel near the emergency brake pedal (see video). If not I recommend doing so as most of these vehicles came with the brake controller adapter port regardless if yours came with the factory tow package or not. If you have a Tekonsha brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 and you have the brake controller adapter port then you can use the Tekonsha Plug-In...

For either system you will also need the RoadMaster BrakeMaster Custom Seat Adapter # RM-88287 and Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751449 for proper function of that supplemental braking system.

  • The items you will need to flat tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee are base plates, tow bar, tow bar wiring and a braking system for towed vehicle. For base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster # RM-521440-4 as these will work with several versions of your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited as long as it's not an SRT-8 model. The steel construction is computer cut providing awesome strength. Within the instructions you will find numerous installation photos. Next, you will need tow bar....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit with a Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar

Both Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521440-4 and EZ5 # RM-521440-5 base plate kits that fit the Grand Cherokee will work with the Sterling tow bar. The same with the Cherokee except use EZ4 # RM-521447-4 or EZ5 # RM-521447-5. For either Jeep the Sterling tow bar safety cables will not work with the EZ5 kits. If you need...

  • Complete Flat Towing Package Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
  • To tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with your motorhome there are several things that you will need. You will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system. The tow bar installs on your motorhome and then connects to the base plates on your Jeep. I was able to find that your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a gross vehicle weight of up to 6500 pounds, so a tow bar that is rated for this weight that I recommend is the Roadmaster Blackhawk...

  • Seat Adapter and Stop Light Switch Kit for BrakeMaster System on a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
  • To use the Roadmaster BrakeMaster system # RM-9160 on your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, you will need the following items: Stop Light Switch kit, # RM-751449 Seat Adapter, # RM-88287 Because your Grand Cherokee has a combined lighting system (the brake lights and turn signals are on the same circuit) you should not need a brake light relay.

  • How to Connect Brake Controller to Cold Side of Brake Light Signal Aside from the Stop Light Switch
  • To accommodate your situation you would either need a stop light switch kit, like part # RM-751449, or simply connect the that specific wire from your brake controller to a 3rd brake light or any circuit that only gets hot when your brake pedal is pressed. A diode should not be used in this situation. The stop light switch kits are vehicle specific so it you could let me know what the year/make/model of your vehicle is I can see if we have one confirmed as a fit for your application.

I also recommend the Roadmaster # RM-155 lighting kit, because it will remain completely independent of the vehicle's lighting circuits. Your BrakeMaster will work, but you'll need a seat adapter, part # RM-88287 and a # RM-751449 stoplight switch kit, which is compatible with vehicles with non-adjustable pedals only. Since your GC has a combined taillight system, you won't heed the # RM-88400 relay. You won't...

  • Yes, you can use the InvisiBrake, # RM-8700, on your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. In order for it to work properly you will need to have a wiring system that taps into the vehicle wiring like # RM-154 and you will need Stop Light Switch Kit, # RM-751449. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation of the InvisiBrake for you to view. I have also included some helpful links on flat towing for you.

If it is a two-wheel drive version, it cannot be towed four-wheels down, and the same holds true if it is a four-wheel drive model with Quadra-Trac 1 (or no "4-Lo" range). Should you be able to flat-tow your Jeep, the first thing you will need is the appropriate base plate kit. The Blue Ox, # BX1128, is a confirmed fit for your Grand Cherokee and is virtually unnoticeable after install. You will...

If you don't already have them you'll also need safety cables, wiring, a braking system, and likely a high-low adapter to flat tow the Jeep. The safety cables I recommend at # RM-643.
