Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM-15247

Diode kit allows you to use your vehicle's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV. Wires 2-wire and 3-wire systems to operate as a combined lighting systems. Includes 7-wire to 4-wire Flexo-Coil electrical cord.


Features:

  • Lets you wire your vehicle to accept your RV's tail, brake, and turn signal lights for flat towing
  • Wires towed car as combined system so that brake and turn signals travel along same wire
  • Prevents electrical feedback and the damage it can cause to your vehicle's electrical components
  • Diodes powder coated aluminum case is corrosion resistant and provides protection from the elements
  • Brake light relay (RM-88400 - sold separately) may be required if used with supplemental braking system
  • Flexo-Coil cord is resitant to water, oil, chemicals, and has silicone-injected plugs to prevent corrosion
  • Includes: 4 Hy-Power diodes; 30' long, 4-wire harness; wire connectors; cable ties; 1 ring terminal; 3' long plastic loom, 8 ft coiled cord, vehicle mounting bracket, and socket
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Diode Max amperage: 85 amps
  • Diode Max voltage: 24 volts
  • Coiled cord max length: 8'
  • Coiled cord retracted length: 15"


Note: For applications that have separate lighting, this kit will cause your brake lights to function as both brake and turn signal lights. A wiring converter (118158 - sold separately) and 2 additional diodes (RM-792) will be needed if you want to retain separate turn and brake signals.


Separate vs. Combined Lighting Systems

Some automobiles operate on a 3-wire system, wherein the brake signal and the turn signals travel along different wires to illuminate different lights. (Typically, these vehicles have amber turn signals.) This is referred to as a "separate lighting system". When you hook up for flat towing using this kit, your towed car's lighting system will operate in a combined fashion regardless of whether it typically has combined or separate lighting. This means that the brake and turn signals sent by your RV to your towed car will be carried on a single wire. As a result, your car's brake lights will do the flashing for the turn signals. Your vehicle will still function as designed when not hooked up to your RV.

Do You Need a Brake Light Relay?

Because this kit wires your vehicle as a combined system, a brake light relay (RM-88400 - sold separately) may be required if you use a supplemental braking system with your towing setup. A supplemental braking system depresses the brake pedal in your towed car every time you apply the brakes in your RV. So, if your towed car's brake lights illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed and the engine is off - as is the case when towing - then you need to install a relay to ensure that the lights on your towed car always act in accordance with the signals sent by your RV via the wiring harness. Without a relay, the brake signal from your towed car will override the turn signal sent by your RV when you slow down to make turns, creating a potential hazard.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-15247 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 4-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit. This kit will let you wire your vehicle to accept your RV's tail, brake, and turn signal lights for flat towing. This will wire the towed car as a combined system so that your brake and turn signals will travel along the same wire. This will also prevent any electrical feedback and the damage it can cause to your vehicle's electrical components. They use these diodes here, which use a nice powder coated, aluminum case, which is corrosion resistant, provides protection from the elements. If this kit is used with a supplemental braking system, it may require a brake light relay which we sell separately on our website. It's part number RM-88400.

The flexo-coil cord right here, this is resistant to water, oil, chemicals, has a nice silicone injected plug to prevent corrosion. This kit includes everything shown here on the table. It includes the four high-powered diodes, the 30' long 4-wire harness, wire connectors, cable ties, even has this nice 3' long plastic loom to go around the wiring. It has the 8' flexo-coil cord right here. Comes with a four pin socket and the mounting bracket for attaching that socket to the vehicle. A few specs on this kit, the diode's max amperage is 85 amps, max voltage is 24 volts.

This flexo-coil cord, it's 8' long and when it's fully stretched out, maximum length is about 15' long. One last note on this kit, I do want to mention this for applications that have separate lighting, this kit will cause your brake lights to function as both brake and turn signal lights. What you do need if you want to retain your separate turn and brake signals, you do need a wiring converter, which we sell separately, part number 118158, and two more additional diodes, which they are part number RM-792. That should do it for the review on the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 4-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit.

As you can see, I ordered the components necessary to allow me to flat tow my Jeep Grand Cherokee behind my motorhome. I followed the recommendations made by one of your employees as far which components would be necessary to meet my objective. Now that I have utilized this equipment to tow our vehicle over two separate trips to Seattle, Washington and also to Tucson, Arizona, I can report that we have been very satisfied with every aspect of our purchase. Thank you, again, for the expert assistance! 408974

One major draw back that is see is that none of the wire connector spades you crimp on the end of the wires were of the Heat Shrink type. This leaves the wire exposed to water and possible corrosion. Need to spend the extra $$$'s and upgrade the spade connectors to the Heat Shrink type. 369378
