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.

I’m thankful etrailer has the parts I need along with easy to follow videos for installation. However, I was disappointed that although the parts were in stock it took a week before you shipped them out of your warehouse.

Worked great

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.

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.

The instruction video was the biggest help. Because I’m very visual without that I’m not sure I could’ve done this. It turned out great and I’ve not had any issues in the last year.

  • Does the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Fit the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited
    You definitely want to have a supplemental braking system when flat towing your 2014 Jeep Cherokee and I am happy to report that the Roadmaster InvisiBrake # RM-8700 is a fit for your Jeep! I cannot recommend deviating from the instructions so I do recommend teeing in at the power brake booster line rather than that other location you mentioned. In order for the braking system's alert light to function properly (which let's you know the vehicle brake pedal is actually moving) you will...

  • Locating Cold Side of Brake Light Switch on 2016 GMC Terrain
    If you are unable to locate the correct terminal on your 2016 GMC Terrain's BCM to connect the brake controller red wire to, I recommend testing the brake switch wires beneath the brake pedal with a circuit tester like # PTW2993. 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...

  • Stop Light Switch Location On A 2015 Jeep Cherokee
    The stop light switch that you will need to connect the red wire to on the Brake Control Plug-In Harness for Tekonsha part # 20127 may be pre ran to a set of wires taped to the underside of the drivers side vehicle dash. If the wires are not present in this location, I recommend installing a stop light switch such as the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751471 to wire the brake controller stop light switch to because of the difficulty and risk of error that is involved when splicing...

  • Supplemental Braking Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2015 Jeep Cherokee
    I did some checking and it looks like your 2015 Jeep Cherokee has vacuum assisted brakes. The most popular supplemental braking system we offer is the Roadmaster Even Brake Part # RM-9400 this system applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles. The brake switch wire on your 2015 Cherokee that you will need is a dark green/light green trimmed wire. Look for it on the brake...

    The best place to install the module of the Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700 on your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus is under the seat on the driver's side. I confirmed this with Roadmaster. You will need to connect this to the stop light switch which is a dark green/light green wire. If you'd rather avoid splicing into your stop light switch you can also install the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751471. Attached is an installation video of the stop light switch...

    The only components that are required to flat-tow your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk aside from the core items (tow bar, base plates, supplemental braking system) are going to be the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit part # RM-751471 and the Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for Towed Vehicles part # RM-156-25.

    There are a few options available for your 2012 Chevrolet Equinox. You can either use a hard wired system like the Roadmaster Invisibrake # RM-8700, which will get installed permanently to the vehicle. On the other hand, you can use non-permanent kits like the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400, which can be moved between different tow vehicles. Both of these options are an excellent choice for your 2012 Equinox, however, I personally recommend the Roadmaster InvisiBrake # RM-8700. Simply...

For a braking system that comes with the brake light relay use the Even Brake # RM-9400. If the push-button start feature does not start the engine when the brake fuse is removed, then you need to perform a normally closed installation.

To install, the following accessories are required: Stop light switch, part # RM-751471 Seat Adapter, part # RM-88307 If the motorhome has hydraulic brakes, you'd use # RM-9060, and both parts above would be needed.

    The Hopkins flat towing wiring harness kit # HM56208 is a correct fit for your 2017 Jeep Cherokee and this pretty much just plugs in at the taillight connectors; the white ground wire is to be installed to a metal surface.

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.

    In order to flat tow your 2020 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk Elite, you'll need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution so the vehicle taillights will mimic what the motorhome tallights do, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter and a few other odds and ends.

The only base plate kit compatible with your tow bar is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1138.
