Roadmaster Tow Bar Braking Systems - RM-751475

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


Note: If you are installing a trailer brake controller on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, this stop light switch kit may be required.


By tapping into your towed car's brake-light switch, 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.

Ordered parts for installing a brake controller. The videos that are part of the web site were a great help in selecting all the needed parts, detailed down to the part numbers that were needed. I really like the fact that there is a video showing the brake controller installation with my specific vehicle. Great service ! 462995

This is a great device. The reason I bough it from ETrailer is because of customer service. They are super helpful. Place the brake as suggested and try it out. Works just as expected. 376097

Installed in 2016 Ford Edge Titanium. Had to buy additional cable connectors that were not included in the kit and instructions did not specify they were required. I would have given 5 stars if it was at least mentioned in the instructions. 366814

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector for a 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
  • In order to install a 7-way trailer connector on the rear of your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 you will need to use the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness part # 118649 with the Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole part # 37185. Unfortunately, they do not make a wiring harness that splices into the taillights and give you a 7-way trailer connector therefore this will be your only option. If you will be towing a trailer with brakes then you will still need to use part # 118649 but instead...

  • Parts Needed to Wire Brake Controller to 2017 Mercedes Benz Sprinter with Green Connector
  • Since you have brake controller pre-wiring already on your 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 3500 you would not need to use a stop light switch like part # RM-751475. We don't sell a connector that plugs right into it, but you can still use it to wire up a brake controller like the P3 part # 90195. You'll need to cut the connector off and then wire the vehicle wiring to the controller's wiring. On the controller the blue wire is the brake output circuit which runs to the 7-way of the vehicle,...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
  • There is no plug-and-play brake controller harness for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 so brake controller installation will be a hard-wire process. Under the driver's seat there should be a green plug. The wires to this plug can be tested with a circuit tester like # ALL640595 to confirm their function since vehicle wire colors are not always consistent. A brake controller like the Prodigy P2 # 90885 has 4 wires that require connection to the Sprinter. The black wire is...

  • Everything looks great. The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118649 is confirmed to fit your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500. It will install by connecting directly to built-in ports located behind the trim panels in the cargo area on the driver and passenger side. Once plugged in, you will just need to run the hot lead up to the Sprinter's battery. I have attached an installation video that you can use for reference. Then, the Universal Wiring Kit # ETBC7 is exactly...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2017 Ford Edge Titanium without Adaptive Cruise Control
  • The correct Roadmaster base plate kit you need for a 2017 Ford Edge Titanium without active cruise control and a V6 is the part # RM-524454-4 that you referenced. This base plate is perfectly compatible with your Roadmaster Falcon 2 tow bar part # RM-520 that you have as well. These two would work great together. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2016 Ford Edge Titanium Behind 2014 Thor Chateau Motorhome
  • The items required for safe and legal flat towing are outlined in the linked overview article on towing a vehicle behind a motorhome. You will also want to check that the hitch and the MH's frame both are rated adequately for the total weight of your trailer (and the Edge too, of course). Starting with base plates, you can use the Roadmaster kit # RM-524448-4. These fit the Edge without 2.0 EcoBoost. For a car-mount tow bar you can use their StowMaster Tow Bar # RM-501. For safety cables...

  • Recommended Parts to Flat Tow a 2017 Ford Edge Titanium
  • Yes, disconnecting the battery with a Quick-Disconnect, like the Deka part # DW05312, will be the easy way to go when it comes to disconnecting the battery on your 2017 Ford Edge so it can be flat towed. Disconnecting the battery prevents it from draining while you are flat towing. Since the owner's manual states that the battery must be disconnected I strongly recommend following those instructions and not trying to get by it somehow. That is one of the down sides to flat towing with...

  • Recommended Electric Trailer Brake Controller for a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with Tow Package
  • It sounds like you're looking for an electric brake controller for your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. There isn't a confirmed plug and play wiring adapter for your van. If you have a connector under the dash send me a picture of it and I'll see if we have something that will work for you. Since you have the tow package with a 7-way trailer connector you'll just need the wiring kit # 5506. You'll also need a brake pedal switch # RM-751475 because of the wiring system of the van.

  • Adding a Brake Controller to a 2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • Since your 2012 Mercedes Sprinter does not have the wiring to plug in a brake controller but does have a 7-Way trailer connector you will need to do a little hardwiring to install a controller such as # 90195. You will need installation kit # 5506. From the kit you will use the wire, 30 amp circuit breaker, and ring terminals. On the brake controller the white wire will ground to the negative battery terminal. The black wire will connect to the positive terminal via the 30 amp circuit...

If there is already a factory installed 7-way connector on your Sprinter, you will just need to install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751475 along with the Universal Installation Wiring # 5506.

  • Is Brake Light Required when Using a Supplemental Braking System on a 2017 Ford Edge
  • You will not need to use the brake light relay on your 2017 Ford Edge and SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO braking system # SM99251. But since your vehicle brake lights do not light up with the ignition off you will need to use the stop light switch kit # RM-751475. The switch kit activates the motor home brake-monitoring system whenever the brake pedal in your Edge is applied which ensures that the supplemental braking system is functioning properly.

  • Since your 2017 Ford Edge requires that the negative battery cable be disconnected to tow the vehicle, you will just need to add the 12 Volt Outlet Kit # RM-9332 for use with your Blue Ox Patriot II Portable Braking System # BRK2016. This kit is needed to provide power to the braking system with the vehicle battery disconnected. The kit attaches directly to the battery terminals to provide the needed power. In order for the Blue Ox Patriot II System to work properly on your vehicle,...

  • If you're switching towed cars and want to get away from the tow dolly method of transporting your car behind your Class A RV then you will no longer need the trailer brake controller used to activate the brakes on the dolly. You will need a different type of braking system for the new towed car, one that installs in it. This is among the items you'll need to flat tow a vehicle capable of being towed in this manner. I checked the online edition of the owner's manual for the 2017 Ford...

  • Recommended Proportional Braking System for Flat Towed 2015 Ford Edge
  • Among the options for flat towing braking systems for use in your 2015 Ford Edge, the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2019 offers probably the least intrusive and easiest installation. Since the Patriot is wireless and portable the only required changes to the Edge itself are installation of the 12V power outlet kit # RM-9332 and the Stop Light Switch kit # RM-751475. Both of these small parts are easily removed if desired. The real beauty of the Patriot II is that it can stay with you for as...

  • Parts Necessary to Flat Tow a 2017 Ford Edge
  • According to the owner's manual of your 2017 Ford Edge the vehicle can be flat towed with a 2.7L V6 EcoBoost, though are a number of parts you will need in order to do this, starting with compatible base plates. The ones you need will depend on the model of your Edge; I recommend the Blue Ox # BX2667 if you have either the SE, SEL or Titanium model of Edge. If you have a Sport model, the base plates you need are going to depend on whether or not you have Active Cruise Control. Roadmaster...

  • How to Power Blue Ox Patriot II Braking System When Installed on 2017 Ford Edge
  • I took a look at the online owners manual for your 2017 Ford Edge. It does state that you will need to disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery before flat towing the vehicle. Because of this, you will won't be able to use the 12V plug on the passenger side to power the braking system. I do also recommend checking your copy of the owners manual for any additional restrictions or guidelines before proceeding. In order to use the excellent Blue Ox Patriot II Braking System...

  • Trouble Locating Cold Side of Stop Light Switch for Brake Controller on 2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
  • There are some wires that are hot all of the time which is why we usually try to emphasize that the brake controller, like the Prodigy P3 # 90195, needs to be connected to the cold side of the stop light switch when installing the Kit # ETBC7. Sometimes a vehicle will not have a wire connected to the cold side of the stop light switch which is what you are finding. In that case you will simply need to install the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751475. This is typically used for...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
  • If your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 came with a factory 7-way trailer connector then there should be a green connector located under the driver's seat. This green connector would then be plugged into a Mercedes-Benz speciality harness and attached to a brake controller. However, if you do not have this connection or cannot find it then you will want to proceed with the hardwire option. In order to hardwire a brake controller such as the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller...

  • Recommended Brake Controller And Installation Kit For 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500
  • For your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500, I recommend the Tekonsha Primus IQ # TK90160. This is a proportional controller that will give your trailer brakes the same intensity of braking pressure at the same time as you hit the brake pedal in your Sprinter. For this installation you will need the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751475 as well as the Universal Installation Wiring for Trailer Brake Controller # 5506, which is the # ETBC7 kit we reference in the video without the...

  • Recommended Automatic Battery Disconnect for 2015 Ford Edge with Supplemental Braking System
  • Since the battery in your 2015 Ford Edge needs to be disconnected before flat towing the vehicle, I recommend using the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect with Switch # RM-766. This is confirmed to work on your Edge and will allow for convenient disconnect of your battery. This system includes a switch that can be installed inside your vehicle for simple and easy operation. To power a supplemental braking system like the Roadmaster Even Brake # RM-9400 with the battery disconnected,...

  • Recommended Proportional Trailer Brake Controller for Use with Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes
  • The trailer brake controllers we most often recommend are the proportional type that slow the towed item (in your case the tow dolly with your 2011 Mini Countryman) at the same rate that the tow vehicle itself slows down. This proportional braking reduces the "tug of war" feeling between the dolly and the tow vehicle. The two versions of our preferred Prodigy controller, the P2 # 90885 and the P3 # 90195, use the same internal technology but the P3 delivers this with additional user-friendly...

It is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # BX2667 which will then require the adapter # RM-031 which works on Sterling tow bars with serial numbers up to 14,500. If the serial number on your tow bar is 14,501 or above, then the adapter # RM-031-5 is the correct fit. For your tow bar wiring, I recommend the RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Towing Combo Kit #...

  • How to Obtain Brake Light Signal in 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis
  • The ground (cold side) of the brake light signal in a Sprinter can sometimes be found in the wiring above the brake pedal. A high-sensitivity LED circuit tester will be required to test this due to the weak signal strength in this wire. This is due to the low voltages in this vehicle's wiring system. In other cases you may need to install an accessory stop light switch kit # RM-751475 to provide that brake light signal needed to trigger a brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195.

If it does not have a 4-way you would need to install harness # 118649 before using the Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controller # ETBC7. You were also correct that a brake pedal switch, Roadmaster's # RM-751475, will be necessary for your Sprinter. As for a brake controller, I strongly recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195; it is the most popular model we carry...

I reached out to my tech contact at Roadmaster to confirm. Each vehicle is different whether this is required or not. Since it is required on your vehicle I recommend the # RM-766. You will also need stop light switch # RM-751475 for this application. I've attached a video to help.

This is an excellent proportional controller that will activate your trailer's brakes at the same time and with the same intensity that you apply to them in your RV. It will work well with LED trailer lights because it does not use any taillight circuits for activation. To install the controller, you will just need a few items, depending...
