Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring BX8869 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit. This wiring kit allows you to get the signal lights needed for flat towing without tapping into your towed vehicle's electrical system. It provides brake signal, running, and signal lights, and it runs beneath the vehicle completely and connects to your RV so it bypasses the towed vehicle's electrical system all the way. The bulbs and sockets are going to mount inside your vehicle's tail lights. To get these mounted in the tail lights you will need to use a 1" diameter hole saw, that's indicated in the included instructions. It does come with detailed installation instructions to help walk you through the entire process step-by-step. Everything here on the table is what you're going to get.

You're going to get two lights, two sockets, you're going to get your bundle of wiring, this is your main wiring harness. It's going to measure around 26' long. You're going to get a couple extra extension wires for the installation back at the tail light assemblies. You're going to get your ground screws, your butt connectors, and you're going to get your ring terminals. The product's also fully made in the USA, and again, it does come with detailed installation instructions to help walk you through that entire process step-by-step. These bulbs are going to sit in a really nice, it's like a J-socket ...

So you can push those down and release them as needed. It's going to use bulb number 2357. That's going to do it for today's look at the Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit.

The BX8869 I ordered is a wiring kit used for towing a 2005-07 FORD FOCUS ST. Product arrived in an expedient fashion and the installation was fairly straight forward although finding a way through the firewall seemed dubious at best. Ran the wiring through the engine bay under the vehicle up to the rear tail light housings.. Keeping the wiring up and safe was a bit of a challenge. Based on the experience on the whole I would have no hesitation recommending etrailer to family or friends for quality products at very competitive prices. 91414

Got the products quickly and with no issues. Tail light wiring kit Installation was a few days later due to schedule but the installation went well and the videos of installation steps was very helpful. Use caution when installing the bulb into the tail light assembly. The manufacturer says to use a 1" hole saw. The hole and the bulb are very close in size and can be pretty loose in the hole. You can bend some of the tabs out to make it hold center then apply the silicone sealer. Hitch receiver and lock - excellent. 249722

Blue Ox is top of the line and this wiring kit is easy to install. With the included instructions and the eTrailer YouTube video, anyone can complete the install with basic tools. Overall, eTrailer customer service, products, and shipping is top of the line. I ordered products via phone and their website and both experiences were exceptional. There pricing is better than any other site or shop. eTrailer is now my new go-to site for anything I need. Thanks guys. 297103

This is a straight forward installation. I paired this kit with a 7way to 4 round pigtail and 4 round receptacle from etrailer. Both were much cheaper than found anywhere else and arrived within two days of placing the order. Communication was great with email notifications as well. I am a new RV owner and it looks like I've found my go to place for all my towing related supplies. Great job etrailer. 60146

I ordered several items to equip my Honda CRV for towing....BlueOx baseplate, lighting kit and a receiver tube (to carry bicycles). Good prices and expeditious shipping. Can't complain about anything....was very happy with their customer service. They certainly will be my go-to source if I need anything in the way of towing or hitch equipment. 372980

This product worked as intended. I was able to keep the car wiring separate from the motorhome wiring, electrically. In my Saturn it was relatively easy to run the wiring and drill the new holes in the back of the rear light housings. I will use these same type of parts again if I change my towed vehicle. 286563

The Blue Ox system is top of the line and simple to install. It arrived quickly and will be installed on Thursday. The RV is still about two weeks out, so we can't field test it just yet, but are excited about the prospect of having my jeep as a dinghy for excursions. 185234

by: Rich09/02/2013


The wiring was simple and straight forward. The only issue is the 1" hole drilled for the light bulb socket is a little larger than the socket. Directions suggest using silicone to fasten the sockets. If you lose a lamp on the road it's not convenient change bulbs. 97847

This is a great kit to add rear lights to a Ford Focus because you have to remove the negative battery cable for towing. There is more then enough wire to complete the job of wiring the lights from the rear of the car to the front for a permanent installation. 375984

  • Parts Needed When Flat Towing A 2014 Ford Focus Behind RV

The safe zone for a motor-home-mounted tow bar ranges from 3 inches above level to 4 inches below. RoadMaster high-low adapters will provide you with the necessary drop. Simply flip the adapter over to achieve the desired level. I have linked you to a product page for high-low adapters. One of the...

If your 7-way on your RV has a 12-volt power feed (typically the pin in the 1:00 position), you can use that circuit to maintain your battery, however it will not charge a discharged battery.
