Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-751471

  • Stop Light Switch
  • Roadmaster

Avoid damage to your towed car 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.

The product showed up at the time I was told it would. I installed it and it fit well and seems to be functioning as it should. I have a couple connections to finish and than OPS check. I used this switch instead of looking for a hot brake wire for my brake controller. No one wanted to touch my Jeep to wire the brake controller in as it did not come with a factory hitch and wiring, and that included the dealer! So I added this switch and now there is no need to do anything with the factory wiring! That eliminates the computer on the Jeep from thinking it has a problem from hooking up something extra it was not expecting. 678848

This product worked exactly as described. Some things to be aware of. 1. It's a yellow dichromate plated solenoid. Not plastic grey. Nice 2. The video for the 2018 Cherokee shows a 4 bolt brake booster. 2019 Cherokee has a 5 bolt brake booster that has a black plastic frame. Use the same bolt location in the video and it works great. You'll need a deep socket and extension. 13mm. 3. PUT the solenoid on BEFORE attaching bracket. If for some reason you forget, Have someone depress brake pedal and then there's plenty of room to install. 620311

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
    In order to flat-tow a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk you are going to need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety chains, flat-tow wiring, a supplemental braking system, and a possible high-low adapter. I have attached my recommendation on the following parts for you below. Base Plate Kit: Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit part # RM-521451-4 - This kit has removable arms for a clean look while unhooked from the RV. As long as you do not have the active air shutter system it will work for you....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited, Latitude or Latitude Plus
    For your 2019 Jeep Cherokee you'll need to first start with a base plate kit. For that you'd want the part # RM-521452-4. This fits the Latitude, Latitude Plus and Limited models. If you have an Overland, Trailhawk, or Trailhawk Elite you'd want the # RM-521451-5. Next you'll need a tow bar which for that the Roadmaster Sterling part # RM-576 is your best option for if you have the Latitude or Limited models since you'll need the included crossbar. If you have an Overland or Trailhawk...

  • Is MOPAR Part # 68321424AB Required to Flat Tow a 2018 Jeep Cherokee
    From our experience the part 68321424AB is required on a 2018 Jeep Cherokee. I recommend checking with a dealership for confirmation. Unfortunately, that part must be sourced at a dealership as well. We do however, have everything else you may need to flat tow the Jeep. The custom base plate kit you need is either part # RM-521447-5, if your Jeep is not a Trailhawk or part # RM-521446-5 if it is. These will connect directly to the Falcon 2 tow bar, part # RM-520. Then you can...

If your Cherokee has the black molded steel bumper you will need the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit # RM-521451-4. With these base plates your Jeep must have factory tow hooks and it will not fit if you...

    He is giving you the information he knows, and isn't incorrect...but is incomplete. There are limits to the battery and that can cause issues, where the manual doesn't have that issue. However, there are many wiring kits, like the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 that will allow you the features to charge your battery while you drive so you are not limited in your hours of towing based on battery.

  • What Causes Death Wobble When Flat Towing 2019 Jeep Cherokee
    There was a special harness from Jeep that was designed to address the problem you mentioned when flat towing the newer Cherokees like your 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Here recently they made updates to the vehicle to take care of it without requiring the harness. The harness part number was 68321424AB and it could only be gotten through them. The harness is designed to address a "wobble" or steering issue that occurs sometimes when the vehicle is flat towing. The newer Cherokee 4x4's have electric...

I recommend Roadmaster Crossbar-style base plate kit part # RM-521451-4 with the Roadmaster All Terrain tow bar part # RM-522. You will also need safety cables part # RM-645. For a rock guard you can use Roadmaster Guardian Rock Guard # RM-4000 which mounts on the tow bar or you can use a hitch-mount adjustable mud flap system like Rock Tamers # ERT00108 which...

You can avoid use of the relay # RM-88400 if you use magnetic lights like # TL21RK.

Instead, I recommend the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles part # HM56208 as it is a completely plug and play kit that does not require you to cut any wires or the tail light housing.

For a braking system that comes with the brake light relay use the Even Brake # RM-9400.

If your Trailhawk is a 2-wheel drive model use base plates # BX1136. If it is a 4x4 use # BX1138. Next you will need a tow bar. I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365, because it has plenty of capacity and it is easy to use. It also comes with another item you will need, safety cables, so you won't have to get any...

Test each wire to see if you can find one that receives power only when the brake pedal is depressed. If you are able to locate this wire, this is where you connect the red wire from the controller to. I was not able to verify the wire color on your Terrain, so...
