Video Transcript for MaxxTow Tow Bar Wiring MT70097 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number MT70097. These are the max tow magnetic led tow lights. They're going to be two sided so on one side your going to have your red lens and then on the other side your going to have your amber colored lens. These are going to supply the trailer or the towed vehicle with the lights that are required for towing. The red lights are going to act as your running lights, break light, and turn signal lights. The amber lights, on the opposite side, are going to act as your emergency flashers.

This system is a great benefit because you don't have to worry about wiring your trailer. You don't have to tap into the existing wiring on your towed vehicle. The magnetic bases on the lights are going to hold firmly to any metal surface. They've got that nice protective coating on it so they're not going to scratch up your vehicle. Then the wiring harness is going to run along your trailer or towed vehicle to the connection point. Its going to use your four way flat plug.

This is the male plug so it's going to plug into a female plug on the vehicle that's doing the towing like an RV or whatever it is that you using. You plug this in and then it's going to extend your RV's lights back to these lights that would be attached to your trailer or towed vehicle. Now, this is an led system. Leds are going to provide superior operation, faster activation, increased brightness. They're more efficient so they have less power draw. They're going to be more durable when compared to incandescent lights.

You're going to have a harness length of 20' long. You can run that along the length of your trailer or vehicle. In between the lights your going to have another wiring bundle. That's going to measure about 80" long. These are designed for vehicles or trailers no wider than 80".

The light diameter is going to measure 4 1/4". Again, the harness length is 20' long. If we take a measurement of the overall height, measuring from the bottom of the base to the top of the light, we're looking at about 6 7/8" tall. The diameter of the magnetic base, that's going to give us a measurement of about 2 1/2". We're going to go and hook it up to our external power source that way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. So simply going to take the two plugs, plug them in together. We can go ahead and turn off our overhead lights as well so you can see it a little bit clearer. This is going to be the running light function. Again, this is going to be the red side. That's going to be facing back towards the back of the vehicle. Then when we apply our breaks, you can see how that illuminates for a stronger signal output. That's going to do that when we activate our turn signals as well. Then here on the amber side, going to function as our emergency flashers. Leds are going to provide that nice bright consistent light that we're looking for. That's going to do it for today's look at part number MT70097. These are the max tow magnetic led tow lights.

Had to replace my older towing lights and these really fit my requirements. With the Led lights not only are they brighter but vibration is not a problem. Also these have lights to both the rear and front. Would tell others I meet during our travels that "etrailer" is a great place to get items for their RV and tow. 210751

Just like they worked when brand new!! Great product. Only improvement might be stronger magnets.

Haven't installed it yet but looks very good. It is going to work good for me because I don't want to tap into the new car's wiring. I have a slight concern about durability but only time will tell. I would recommend this kit to others. 116475


Comments

The lights work great. The magnets dont always hold the lights in place so I have moved them to the inside shelf behind the back seat. I used Velcro to attach them.

Products were received on time, packaged well and correct for application after assistance. Will purchase future needs again and recommend to others. However, products did not fully meet the need as advertised and as shown in video. So I did a call for technical support. This is where the company failed. The answerer was technically incompetent, did not listen, talked down to me and was very rude. She finally hung up on me! A second call still did not resolve the problem but did refer it to the technical support people. I am still waiting for an answer. 417485

Overall unit is good with LED lights a plus as nothing has to be done to the existing tow vehicle wiring/fuse due to their minimal current draw. Problem I had was magnet was not the strongest finding one light usually turned askew or actually hanging by wire a couple times. I got a extra crossbar for my roof rack and have fabricated light mounts to that eliminating the magnets altogether. 285826

by: Mel H.07/15/2014


I took this kit out of the box and set the magnetic lights on top of the car. I then took them off to see how strong the magnets were. They came off way to easy. I'm Afraid they would come off just driving down the Hwy without being in any wind. Cross wind, head wind or any wind at all. I'm going to cut the lights off and use the harness and add light sockets in my tail lights. 141411

Straight forward and easy to use. A few problems though. . The magnets holding the lights to the car are to weak and a good jolt will dislodge them. The LED lights can be difficult to see in the bright sun. Other than that, a decent setup for the money. 272486

by: Douglas04/20/2016


Unacceptable product. The magnets were not strong enough to hold the lights in place even if mounted to a horizontal surface let alone a vertical mounting which is what I needed. Delivery and packaging was good. 246291

Magnets at the base of the lights are so weak they won't even hold the light onto a clean piece of metal much less a vehicle being towed. Look for a better quality light system. 152216

  • Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2013 Chevy Spark with Manual Transmission
  • First let's get you set up with a base plate kit. The Blue Ox # BX1722 is the custom fit base plate kit for your 2013 Chevrolet Spark with a manual transmission. Next we will need a tow bar. I recommend the # BX7420, because it's easy to use and comes with the safety cables. Supplemental Braking Systems are required in most states and Canadian provinces, so you will want to look up your state and see what towing laws they enforce. Surge brakes operate by using a mechanical braking...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation with Minimum Frame Adjustment for a 2017 Jeep Renegade
  • The best option that we have for what you are looking for is the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13269. It is a custom fit for your 2017 Jeep Renegade, but it may require you to enlarge one of the holes to allow room for the spacer. This is the best option for you. I have attached a video of this hitch being installed on a 2016 Jeep Renegade that you can use as a reference. This trailer hitch option does require the use of a Stabilizer Strap # 18050 for any non-trailer loads per the Curt...

  • Recommendations When Flat-Towing 2014 Ford Focus With Automatic Transmission
  • There are 5 main items you need when you are planning on flat-towing your 2014 Ford Focus. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting on the vehicle, and most states now require supplemental brake systems. For your Focus I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plates, part # RM-524430-5. When you are not towing your Focus and you remove the front arms, the system is nearly invisible. The tow bar I recommend is the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520. This tow...

  • Since you are flat towing your 2002 Freightliner Sprinter Van 2500, you will need the following items: a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, wiring and a supplemental braking system. You will need to fabricate your own base plates because there isn't any confirmed custom fits from Blue Ox or Roadmaster. The universal bolt-on adapter tabs # BX88266 will have a 20,000 pound weight capacity. Please note that most bumpers will need to be modified in order to use these brackets. Regarding...

  • Parts Need to Flat Tow a 1986 Jeep CJ-7 Behind a Chevy Tahoe
  • The best option for base plates on your 1986 Jeep CJ7 is the Blue Ox bolt-on base plate bracket kit # BX88230. The capacity is 5,000 pounds. Since this is a custom installation the bumper may need to be reinforced. Please view the included instruction link. I also recommend the Blue Ox tow bar # BX7365 as it has a 6,500 pound capacity. The swivel function feature makes it very easy to connect your vehicle, even on uneven terrain. Safety cables are essential when using a tow bar system...

  • Recommendations For Flat-Towing A 2014 Ford Focus With Manual Transmission
  • I did some research and according to the owner's manual for your 2014 Ford Focus, it appears you do not have to disconnect the battery when towing if it has a manual transmission. The only reference I was able to find said to release the parking brake, and place the vehicle in neutral. It also states not to tow above 70 mph. There are 5 items you need when considering flat-towing your Focus. You need base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, wiring to provide lights for your towed vehicle,...

  • Parts Needed to Flat-Tow a Ford F-150

The items required, in addition to the tow bar and base plates for the towed vehicle, are safety cables, a lighting/wiring kit to operate the toad's lights and a supplementary braking system (required by law in most states). For use with the Blackhawk 2 tow bar I suggest you stay with Roadmaster base plates. You can use part # 495-1A for the 2004 F-150. These base...

  • When flat towing a vehicle there are five basic components that are needed. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety chains, wiring kit, and a supplemental braking system. Many if not all of the these flat towing components are required under law in the majority of states and Canadian provinces.

  • Will Blue Ox Base Plates # BX2258 Fit 2013 Honda CR-V with Oil Cooler
  • After consulting with Blue Ox, I have found that the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2258 is a good fit for the 2013 Honda CR-V you are looking at. Regarding the radiator/oil cooler, if it is a factory-installed item, you will have no problem with the installation of the base plates. If it is an after-market product, you can simply move it to a more convenient location behind the grille. To install the Blue Ox base plates you referenced, you will need to remove the bumper fascia as well as...
