Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM-15267

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 6-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
  • Center pin on 6-Way plug wired to 12V power, there are two industry standards
  • 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-15267 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the RoadMaster diode seven-wire to six-wire flexo coil wiring kit. Now, this will let your wire your vehicle to accept your RV's tail, brake and turn signal lights for flat towing. This will wire the tow car as a combined system so that your brake and turn signals will travel along the same wire. It will also prevent electrical feedback in the damage it can cause to your vehicle's electrical components. The diodes right here use a powder-coated aluminum case, which is corrosion resistant. They provide protection from the elements. Now, if this kit is used with supplemental braking system, it may require a brake light relay, part number RM-88400.

We do sell that separately on our website. The flexo coil cord right here is resistant to water, oil, chemicals, has silicone-injected plugs to help prevent corrosion. The center pin on the six-way plug, it can be wired two different ways. This one happens to be wired as a 12-volt power center pin. It includes everything shown here on the table. Includes the four high-power diodes, the 30-foot long, four-wire harness, all the wire connectors you'll need and cable ties, a nice three-foot long plastic loom to put around the wiring.

This cord right here is an eight-foot coiled cord, and it comes with a vehicle socket, the six-pin socket right here and the mounting bracket for that. All these parts are made in the USA and also covered with a nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything. A few specs on this kit: The diode max. amperage is 85 amps. The diode max. voltage is 24 volts, and we mentioned the coil cord length is eight-foot, and when it's totally extended out, it's 15 foot.

One last note on this kit. For applications that'll have separate lighting, this kit will cause your brake lights to function as both brake and turn signal lights, so you would need to get a wiring converter, which is part number 118158, and two additional diodes, which are part number RM792. Those will be needed if you want to retain separate turn and brake signals. That should do it for the review on the RoadMaster diode seven-wire to six-wire flexo coil wiring kit.

Towbar wiring system arrived within 4 days of placing my order. This 7 to 6 wire system is an upgrade to the simpler 4 wire plugs I've used in the past and will allow me to add on a battery charge line or brake system later on. The demonstration video was indispensable in hooking up the wiring and diodes. Though running and connecting the wiring does take longer than a 10 minute video. Now I can tow my 2016 Jeep Wrangler behind my RV. 444983

The wiring kit included all the parts listed and the video was most helpful with the installation. The installation went fairly easy until I got to the portion of running the brown wire from one taillight to the other taillight. The brown wire was not long enough. I had to splice another piece of wire on to the brown wire to make it longer. etrailer should consider making the length of included wire approximately 3 feet longer. That would have helped a lot with the installation. Also include a longer piece of the split protective plastic. Other than those two issues, I am satisfied with the product. 459131

Overall this would be a five star review except for two issues. One being the wire provided was not 30 ft but was closer to 25 ft as I checked before using. I wired the same as the great etrailer video for my vehicle Cadillac SRX and ended up short. Fortunately I had additional wire and was able to complete the run. Secondly, the female spade connectors used on the diodes needed to be tightened as they were not very tight as provided by Roadmaster. These were all Roadmaster issues and of not fault of etrailer. Everything else looked of good quality. 428886

Everything installed without any issues. I'm very particular so it took 2 days to complete everything. I'm sure a pro could do it much faster. Have towed the 4" lifted (and loaded) Jeep accross the Rockies about 6 times and everything is working perfectly!! Very happy camper!! 301003

Excellent company. Great communication, fast shipping and the products worked perfectly. I had some trouble installing this to my rear brakes, but that was my own fault. I didn't realize that the brake lights are grounded when they are mounted to the Jeep. So I kept testing the lights once they were hooked up, however they weren't mounted back on the Jeep. It wasn't until everything was mounted back on that it all worked without any issues. 305606

I like the coiled cable in RM-15267 At one time I owned an Airstream travel trailer that had a tow cable. The Airstream did not have a coiled cable and I had to tie it up with bungy cords to still allow flexibility while traveling. That lasted for one season and the bungy cords stretched out and the cable started touching the road, scraping off the insulation! The coiled cable in the RM-15267 prevents the cable from dragging on the road! 446459

  • The first thing you'll need to do is confirm that your truck is capable of being flat towed. According to my research, 4WD models can be towed without modification as long as the procedures outlined in the owner's manual are closely followed. 2WD models need a transmission lube pump installed before they can be safely towed. To flat tow the vehicle, you'll need a tow bar, base plates, a wiring solution so the lights on the RV and towed vehicle act in tandem, safety cables, a supplemental...

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ5 and EZ4 Base Plates For 2016 Jeep Wrangler
  • The difference between the EZ4 Base Plate kit part # RM-521448-4 and the EZ5 kit # RM-521448-5 is that the EZ4 uses twist-lock drawbars while the EZ5 uses drawbars held in place by pins and doesn't require the use of a crossbar. I would go with the EZ5 if it were me since not having to use the crossbar is just one less thing to worry about. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle....

If you are at all interested in using a rock guard or protective screening, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 # 523175-4 on your Chevy Traverse.

  • The Roadmaster base plate kit part # 52922-1A is a great choice for a base plate kit for your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek. Roadmaster makes high quality flat towing products that are easy to use and install. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the...

  • Installation Instructions for the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1708 for a 2014 Buick Enclave
  • I am glad that you have found our installation videos helpful. Although the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1708 has been confirmed to fit your 2014 Buick Enclave without the brush guard, as of yet (September 2017) we have not had the opportunity to shoot a video of the installation process of this base plate kit being installed on an Enclave. I recommend checking out the installation instructions which have been attached to this answer page for you to review. They are not the same as...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 GMC Acadia behind Motorhome
  • For your 2016 GMC Acadia we have all the parts needed to flat tow it behind your motorhome. You would need to start with a base plate kit though. For that you would need the part # 523149-1 which is a confirmed fit. These kits aren't incredibly hard to install but they are a bit time consuming. I attached an install video for you to check out, but to find an installer in your area I would recommend you find a local mechanic in your area who is interested in taking on the project. It really...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Using a StowMaster Towbar
  • The Roadmaster XL Base Plate Kit # 3116-1 you have is for the Chevy Cavalier from 2003 to 2005. Unfortunately, that's not going to work for your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The baseplate kit that will fit your Jeep and work with the StowMaster Towbar # RM-501 is # RM-521440-4. You can find the pricing on the product page by clicking the link.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit with a Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar
  • I'm not familiar with a Cherokee Summit so I think you mean you have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit. If I'm wrong about this let me know. But I'll give you parts for both. Both Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521440-4 and EZ5 # RM-521440-5 base plate kits that fit the Grand Cherokee will work with the Sterling tow bar. The same with the Cherokee except use EZ4 # RM-521447-4 or EZ5 # RM-521447-5. For either Jeep the Sterling tow bar safety cables will not work with the EZ5 kits. If you need...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow Jeep Wrangler with D-Ring Style Front Bumper
  • How thick are your D-rings? We have two options that will work but you have to know the size of them. If you have 3/4 inch thick D-rings you need the part # RM-035 as an adapter or if you have 1 inch thick D-rings you need part # RM-035-1. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ
  • Hopefully my dog doesn't eat it. In addition to the tow bar, supplemental braking, and wiring you also need a base plate kit and likely a high-low adapter to tow your 2009 Chevy Silverado. Since you're towing a full size truck you want a tow bar with a higher capacity so I recommend the Roadmaster Blackhawk, part # RM-422. It's rated up to 10,000 pounds. For the safety cables used the coiled # RM-643. The MX Base Plate Kit, part # 3154-3, pairs well with the BlackHawk. The MX...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Ford Explorer behind an RV
  • First you will need to start with a base plate kit to provide the connection point for the tow bar. For that you would want the part # BX2668 for if you do or do not have adaptive cruise control and you do not have a Sport model. If you have a Sport model with or without adaptive cruise you would need the part # BX2660. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • For your 2016 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk I recommend the Blue OX Base Plate Kit # BX1136. All base plates for your Cherokee will require about the same amount of trimming. I've attached a video of the install on a 2015 Cherokee you may find helpful. You should know that your vehicle may have Mortorq fasteners that require a special bit from Snap-On to remove. I recommend going with the SMI Air Force One # SM99243 for your supplemental braking system. The wireless systems will work but...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Ford C-Max
  • The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2016, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles. For a base plate kit I would recommend the part # 524432-1 which I attached an install video for as well. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520. For safety cables you can use # RM-643. The coiled design helps keep the cables...
