Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-751472

  • 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.

  • How to Flat Tow a 2016 Chevy Colorado
    I took a look at the owner's manual of a 2016 Chevy Colorado and a four wheel drive model can be towed so long as it has a N (neutral) and Four-Wheel Drive Low setting. If you look on page 331 of the manual it will go over the detailed process on the ncessary steps to flat tow. There was no mention on how long it can be towed before the eninge needed to be restarted; the only requirement was that you do need to disconnect the vehicle battery in order to flat tow. There are a number of...

  • Flat-Towing Setup for a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2
    Before you purchase the necessary components needed to flat-tow your 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 behind your 2014 Tiffin Allegro Open Road 36LA you will want to review the "Recreational Towing" section of your owner's manual for any special clauses. In order to flat-tow your Colorado you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, supplemental braking system, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a possible high-low adapter. The only base plate kit we have for your Colorado with the ZR2 package...

  • Can a 2017 Chevy Colorado be Flat Towed?
    Yes, you can flat tow your 2017 Chevy Colorado so long as it has a Four-Wheel Drive Low setting. There are a number of things you will need to flat tow, starting with base plates. If your Colorado does not have Adaptive Cruise Control, I recommend going with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-523182-5. If you do have Adaptive Cruise Control or your Colorado is a Z71 Trail Boss or ZR2 model you would need to go with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1721. For a tow bar, a great option...

  • How to Power Supplemental Braking System on GMC Canyon After Disconnecting Battery
    Since GM requires that the battery on your Canyon be disconnected for flat towing, you will just need to add the 12V Outlet Kit # RM-9332 to your setup to provide power to your Roadmaster 9700 Braking System # RM-9700. This will wire directly to the battery to supply the necessary power for this system, which won't be affected by using the Automatic Battery Disconnect # RM-766 that you also mentioned. Please also note that you will need the Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751472 as well...

For a base plate kit that is compatible with your vehicle, I recommend using the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit part # BX1721 as this is the only base plate kit we have list as a fit with the Z71 and Trail Boss packages. We also have an installation video of this kit installed on a 2015 Chevrolet...

    Yes, you can use the Even Brake supplemental braking system # RM-9400 with your 2015 GMC Canyon. To make sure the braking system is properly positioned and working effectively we also recommend the stoplight switch kit # RM-751472.

  • Parts Recommendation to Dinghy Tow 2020 Chevrolet Colorado Behind a Motorhome
    Don't stagger, you've got this! To flat tow your 2020 Colorado behind your motorhome, you'll need a tow bar, base plates, safety cables, a wiring solution so the dinghy's taillights work along with those of the motorhome, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter. For a tow bar, I really like the Falcon All-Terrain, part # RM-522. The non binding design allows you to release the arms of the tow bar from the vehicle regardless of how level the ground is. The arms...

  • Is it Possible to Tow a 2WD 2016 GMC Canyon?
    The owner's manual of your 2016 GMC Canyon specifies that the two-wheel drive version of this vehicle cannot be flat-towed, and the only way to tow it at all would be to use a tow dolly and have it mounted by the rear wheels. However, the tow dolly's we carry state not to tow vehicles by their rear wheels. There is a possible solution for you though, requiring either the installation of a lube pump kit if your Canyon has an automatic transmission, or a drive shaft disconnect if it is...

  • Best Recreational Towing Method On A 2017 2 Wheel Drive Chevrolet Colorado
    There is a way for you to tow your 2017 Chevrolet Colorado behind your Tiffin motorhome however, according to Chevrolet, the 2 wheel drive models of this vehicle should not be flat towed. Some people have found a way to do this by installing a drive shaft disconnect but this would likely void your vehicle's manufacturer warranty. If you choose to flat tow your Colorado, you would need to find a local shop that can install a drive shaft disconnect. You would also need a few additional...

Instead, you can use the Deka Lead Quick-Disconnect Battery Terminal part # DW05312 or you can use the Epicord Battery Disconnect Switch with Key part # 277-000096 and mount it inside the vehicle.

  • Recommended Flat Towing System for 2017 GMC Canyon Diesel with Custom Fab Fours Premium Front Bumper
    Fab Fours aftermarket bumpers are not rated to flat towed with so you need to find a base late kit that fits with the bumper. The problem is that aftermarket bumpers and base plates often install in the same location and interfere with one another. I've linked our selection of base plates for you to take a look at. I recommend comparing them to the bumper and seeing if any will fit. If they'll all work I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Kit # RM-523182-5. Our installers generally...
