Roadmaster Flat Tow Brake System - RM-751449

  • Stop Light Switch
  • Roadmaster

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
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


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.

Works as it should, a little difficult to install (physically), but had to have it for my application, well made and quality parts.

Really good.thank you!!

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!



by:

Unit worked well, fit nicely. Was awkward for me to install because of location under dash, but bracket was designed well fit right up.



by:

Used it for the brake activation light in my towed vehicle. Easily adjustable as far as depth . Positioning took a little work but the bracket is specific to a vehicle other than mine.



by:

Working like a champ! Install was a breeze with etrailer. Can't believe that I was on the road without a TOAD brake.



by:

Bracket came with one undersized bolt and nut. The bracket it attached to had two holes. If the bracket was longer and had another bolt it would be more stable.

I recommend looking at the video installation that we have on a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee starting at mark 2:18. You can see the bracket location and that it uses a five sixteenth by three quarter inch bolt.



by:

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.



by:

All of the etrailer.com products I have purchased were perfect. The shipping was right on time. I have told several of my friends and acquaintances about etrailer.com.



by:

A necessity for the towing application. It works perfectly.

Great product. Works great. Installation was a little tricky for my Jeep Grand Cherokee but we figured it out.



by:

Nice switch, used this as an add on switch for brake controller for 2018 Jeep Compass

Instructions were clear making the installation relatively easy. Parts fit like they were supposed to.

  • What Powers The Diodes In A Diode Wiring Kit
    The diode wiring isn't going to be wired in series so you won't have to worry about the voltage increasing. It will only be powered by the 7-way of your motorhome when the brakes or the turn signals are activated on the motorhome. I've attached a video below where Ryan will walk you through the installation of your diode wiring. Since your 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee has combined wiring and an unusable brake light switch wire you'll need the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751449 (WK...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I do recommend consulting your vehicle's owners manual to confirm that the specific features on your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee allow for flat towing; I have seen some notes that certain trim packages and transfer cases do not allow the vehicle to be flat towed without damaging it. With that said, we can help you find all of the parts you need to flat tow your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee; a complete flat towing setup consists of base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, supplemental...

  • Where Should The 12 Volt Wires Be Connected On A 7 Way To 6 Way Wire Connection?
    I will start by saying I can find nowhere that says your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee needs to have the battery disconnected in order to be flat towed. However, I did find a few things about people contacting the Jeep Product Information Center and them then saying that this was something they had originally said in the owner's manual, but is no longer needed for flat towing. With that being said, it is required that you use the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751449 if you are going to be using...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Base Plates and Accessories for Flat Towing 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Behind a Motorhome
    It looks like you're on the right track with the Roadmaster # RM-521440-5. 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...

  • Is The Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar Capable Of Towing A 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The curb weight of a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee is up to to 5,363lbs, not including anything you're hauling inside of the vehicle. The Blue OX BX7365 has a 6,500lb weight capacity so you would most likely be more than fine using it and would be able to carry a bit of extra weight. That being said you should also verify the capacity of the motorhome's trailer hitch to ensure it's capable. If you haven't already gotten the rest of your components then I have the following recommendations: Baseplate:...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Equipping a 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee for Trailer and Flat Towing
    Let's begin with a hitch and trailer wiring for towing your RV with the Jeep Grand Cherokee. For a hitch, I'd recommend the Curt Class III hitch, part # C13182. You'll also need a ball mount and a trailer ball, provided in the # 989900 etrailer ball mount kit. For a brake controller, I'd go with the Curt # C51180 Echo Wireless Brake controller. The Echo will communicate wirelessly with your smart phone, which you'll use to control the braking action of the trailer. For a vehicle equipped...

    The Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521440-5 is confirmed to fit 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee models except for the SRT-8 and Trackhawk so you wouldn't have an issue with your Trailhawk. The Mopar wiring harness is such a hit or miss between different models so it's best to reach out to a local Mopar dealership with your Jeep's VIN so that they can look up whether or not it would be needed. We have no tech notes on our end stating that it would but giving them a call to confirm...

  • Stowmaster Tow Bar Compatible Base Plate Kit for 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    By brackets, I'm assuming you're meaning base plates that install on the vehicle and provide an attachment spot for the tow bar. If that's the case, I'd recommend the Roadmaster # RM-521440-4 which is compatible with all models except for SRT-8, Trackhawk and models equipped with a brush guard. Tow hooks, if present will need to be removed and left off the vehicle. This is an EZ4 style base plate which is compatible with the # RM-501 Stowmaster tow bar. In addition to the tow bar and...

If you plan on flat towing your 2011 Honda CR-V often, I recommend installing a permanent system like the Roadmaster BrakeMaster System w BrakeAway for RVs w Air or Air Over Hydraulic Brakes # RM-9160. This is a one time install system that makes connecting and disconnecting your toad much easier and faster. If...

    It is possible to flat-tow your 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee depending on it specifications.
