Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-751454

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


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.

  • Recommended Supplemental Braking System For A 2017 Ford Focus
  • You are correct that in order to prevent battery drain while flat towing your 2017 Ford Focus, you will need to disconnect the vehicle's battery cable. However, my contact at Roadmaster recommended you disconnect the positive battery cable while towing, not the negative battery cable.This can easily be done by installing the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch for Towed Vehicle w/ Supplemental Braking System part # RM-766. For a supplemental braking system compatible...

  • Recommended Permanently Installed Supplemental Braking System to Flat Tow a 2018 Ford Focus
  • On your 2018 Ford Focus I recommend the Stay-IN-Play DUO, part # SM99251, for a supplemental braking system. Mainly because no only does it work well (as does the InvisiBrake) it's a little easier to install. Our installers prefer it to any other permanently installed system. I've linked a video of when we installed it into a 2015 Focus for you. You're also going to need a Brake-Lite Relay, part # RM-88400, to keep the lights of the Focus from overriding the lights of the RV. The...

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 2016 Ford Focus
  • In order to flat-tow a 2016 Ford Focus with all four wheels on the ground you are going to need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, supplemental braking system, wiring harness, and possible high-low adapter. Before getting started, I highly recommend taking a look in the owner's manual for any specific procedures that must be done while in tow. For a base plate kit, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit part # RM-524443-5 as long as you do not have adaptive cruise control....

  • Compatibility of Stop Light Switch Kit on a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback w/o Adaptive Cruise
  • I can help you figure out if you need the # RM-751454 stop light switch or not for your 2012 Ford Focus Titanium Hatchback. If your Focus is an automatic then you will need the # RM-751454 stop light switch kit and you will need to disconnect the battery to tow. If your Focus is a manual, you will not need the stop light switch kit, and you will not need to disconnect your battery to tow. Some items you will need to complete your towing setup are: base plate kit like # BX2633 wiring...

  • How to Tow a 2016 Ford Focus Behind a Motorhome
  • For starters, what engine and transmission do you have in your 2016 Ford Focus? If you have the 1.0L I3 engine then the vehicle must be towed on a dolly with the front two wheels off of the ground. If you have the 2.0L I4 engine then the vehicle can be flat-towed with all four wheels on the ground. I will provide options for both engine options below but you need to check the owner's manual for your particular vehicle to see if there are any other flat-towing or dolly towing procedures...

  • Recommendations For Flat-Towing A 2014 Ford Focus With Manual Transmission
  • I did some research and according to the owner's manual for your 2014 Ford Focus, it appears you do not have to disconnect the battery when towing if it has a manual transmission. The only reference I was able to find said to release the parking brake, and place the vehicle in neutral. It also states not to tow above 70 mph. There are 5 items you need when considering flat-towing your Focus. You need base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, wiring to provide lights for your towed vehicle,...

  • Components Needed to Flat Tow 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Sterling Tow Bar
  • I always recommend consulting the owner's manual first to determine whether the manufacturer provides specific instructions for flat towing your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee as not all vehicle configurations can be flat towed without modification. Roadmaster does offer # RM-521440-4 base plates for the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. These base plates are compatible with all Roadmaster tow bars including the Sterling tow bar, but aren't compatible with SRT-8 GC models or models equipped with a...

  • With the addition of the Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter, # RM-031, you can use the Blue Ox Base Plates, # BX2633, with your Roadmaster Blackhawk towbar. These base plates are specifically designed for use with your 2013 Ford Focus SE but are not compatible with the ST model or any vehicle equipped with the adaptive cruise control feature.
