    Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-154 Review

    Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM-154. This is the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit. This kit is going to connect your RV's tail brake and turn signal lights to your towed car's lighting system. It is designed to work with 2-Wire and 3-Wire lighting systems. 2-Wire systems also know as combined systems are going to have the stop and turn signals sent along the same wire. 3-Wire systems also know as separate systems are going to have the stop and turn signals sent along different wires. This unit is going to prevent electrical feedback and the damage it can cause to your vehicles electrical components.

    With this video we just want to accomplish what the kit includes. So to do that we're going to start here with the (4) Hy-Power Diodes. It's going to be these units right here, these are included. You can see here they're going to have the spade connectors already attached to them, so don't spend too long looking for the connectors. They're going to be attached to the Hy-Power Diodes.

    Everything is going to be color coded and the installation instructions are going to walk you through the installation process step by step, so you definitely want to go off the instructions they're very well done. They're very well thought out and detailed. One of the things I really like about the instructions is they have pictures. That always helps me with the installation and they have the wiring diagram right there on the back page. So your going to get the (4) Hy-Power Diodes. You're going to get the necessary connectors for you're installation.

    Youre going to get your molded wire electrical cords. These are going to be your four wire systems. You're going to get a six foot cord this is going to be your power wire and your going to get your thirty foot cord. We're going to have the four way flat wire connectors for both the vehicle and RV. Now all connector ends are going to have the nice dust cap on there. That way it's going to protect the connection points simply just held on the head of each connector with a little tether strap and then when you're ready to cover up the connection points you just bring that dust cap over top of the terminals there on the end of the connector.

    Now if your RV has a 3-Wire system and is not already wired for a trailer connector. A converter is required you can find that, the part number RM-732 that item is sold separately. In this little bag right here you're going to get some zip ties that's going to be to secure any excess wires. It's also going to help and keep your wires up and out the way, keep them safe for your installation. You're going to get a ring terminal and that's designed to be used for your ground connection that will need to be made in the process of your installation. When it comes to the maximum amperage for this unit we're looking at eighty-five amps and the max voltage we're looking at twenty-four volts. The installation is fairly simple again, you want to go over the installation instructions. We also have quite a few videos on our website. Installation videos that are vehicle specific. So you might want to check that out to see if your particular vehicle is on there and that will walk you through the process as well. But to sum it up one end of the thirty foot cord is going to need to be mounted at the front of the tow vehicle towards the center. This will be the end, that's going to connect to the four way connector coming from the RV. The other end of the thirty foot cord is going to run to the back of the vehicle and that's going to get connected into the vehicles wiring system near the tail lights. Again, all the necessary connectors are included as well as your (4) Hy-Power Diodes. The head of the connector will need to be cut off and then you just take the appropriate color wires to the appropriate functions and the instructions are going to do a good job at highlighting the importance of that and helping you find those out. Once you have everything connected you can see here we have a smaller bundle of cord, this is going to be our six foot power cord. This is going to connect the RV to the plug at the front of our towed vehicle. So that's included and then you're going to get three feet of wire loom. Sometimes when you run the wires under the vehicle it is thirty feet long so it's going to run under the vehicle on the frame. There's going to be some sharp components or maybe a sharp edge that you have to go over or a sharp hole that you have to go through. We recommend using some of this wire loom to go over the four way wires and just to protect it from those sharp points or those dangerous areas as you run under the vehicle. And then again, you're going to get your zip ties to secure your wires up and out the way. That's going to do it for our review of part number RM-154 this is the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit.

    As always great customer service and delivery. I would highly recommend e trailer for all towing needs, and other products they sell. 206606

    I got rid of a dolly to go with towbar, best thing Ive done so much easier to hook up and unhook than a dolly. Great product and great customer service cant beat that plus great prices.

    I used this for a Jeep Wrangler, probably one of the easier applications. etrailer cautions us to ensure the ground is proper, and I can confirm this. While I found the proper wires using voltage, the gound I used had too much resistance to allow for proper functioning. It took several hours to track it down. But no doubt, when the electical system gives what appears to be impossible data, it is always the ground. I hooked to the proper ground and it works like a charm. I do recommend using heat shrink tubing on the spade connectors. Also I mounted the four flat connector to the bumper. Curt brackets do not fit the connectors in this package without serious modifications. 192669

    I installed the wiring harness yesterday and it took about 4 hours. Thats actually 4 hours of work, in reality it was more like 6 hours but most of the time was trying to figure out how to route the wiring which is not the fault of the harness. Everything worked as advertised with no gotchya's or any issues which was really surprising. I installed it on a 2009 Smart fortwo Passion which I am towing behind my motorhome. My advice for anyone using this is take your time, read the directions carefully before you start and follow them step by step and you should have no issues. 281855

    Installation was relatively straightforward, and the necessary parts were included in the kit. The installation is not technically difficult, but gaining access to some the wiring was somewhat irritating because of the assembly techniques used in modern vehicles. Be prepared for somewhat tedious digging around to get to the wires, and pull enough slack to work with them. Once again, a few extra plastic automotive fasteners and automotive cable fasteners came in handy. They're available at a decent hardware store or Home Depot-like store. 63823

    Great experience, quick shipping, excellent video and instructional references to go along with the products. I did the installation of the product myself and without the text and instructional video's there is no way I would have been 100% successful. These are the extra value add things that make the difference when shopping with etrailer, I will be a return customer. I am using this product with my 2016 Jeep Wrangler towed by a 2014 Fleetwood Bounder motorhome. 339287

    This wiring kit worked marvelously. I'm pretty handy but electrical things can still be a bit scary for me. I got a little help from the good etrailer people, watched a bunch of videos and finally looked at the wiring diagram sent with the kit. Wiring diagrams are not always as straight forward as I would like but this kit has a very good one. I have bought a handful of products from etrailer and consider them to be a cut above.

    Although I am commenting on this product, I actually would like to comment on the following products. I purchased a brake system, tow bar, base plates and wire harness from etrailer. All of my orders were filled in a timely manner. When I reached out for technical assistance, the advisors were readily accessible. All of the products were installed by me. All of the products were very easy to install by using the video and instructions. 337853

    by: Don Featherstone08/23/2011


    I received the product and it was exactly what I had ordered, it was easy enough to install by myself. However, the only thing I would caution future buyers on is knowing both your "towed vehicle" and your "tow" vehicle's lighting system. I was a little thrown off by the instructions and how it referred to "combined" and "seperate" light systems. I'm sure if your going to wire your vehicles yourself you'll figure it out as I did. 22587

    This is the 3rd time I've used this wiring harness, I like to trade cars. The first was on a 2008 Pontiac G6 convertible, the 2nd, a 2010 Cadillac SRX, and now, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Outlander. All 3 were easy to wire and the instructions were VERY helpful! Roadmaster has there stuff together when it comes to RV towing products. And etrailer.com provides great pricing and GREAT support after the sale. 270519

    You need to be handy and understand how to make your electrical connections secure. Follow the instructions (view the online video, helps) and all will be fine. This installation makes the towing process much easier than hanging lights on the towed vehicle. Install it..........plug it in to the towed vehicle, and the motorhome and you are done with the lights. Good way to go. 338467

    Hard to give a review...Just received the product today, but must say the service, packaging, and price were all great. Installing the RM 154 should not be a problem for me and the great thing is I ordered two kits, one for myself, that I'll install first and so the second one for a friend should be a cake walk install. Both installs will be on GMC Canyon PUs. 211769

    Takes time to install wiring from the front of the dinghy vehicle. Easy to install diodes if you follow the Etrailer video and follow the instructions. Probably took me a couple of hours to install due to laying under the truck to route the wiring from the front to the connection to the coach. 276887

    • Lighting and Wiring Options for Flat-Towing a Jeep Wrangler Behind a Motor Home
    • What you need is a light kit specifically for flat-towing. The Plug-N-Tow TM Vehicle Wiring Harness, # 42615, would be if the Jeep were towing a trailer and not for activating its lights while it is being towed. There are a few options for lighting when flat-towing a vehicle. I have included an FAQ article that covers the various options. What it boils down to is how often you will be towing the Jeep behind the motor home. If you do not plan on towing it very often, the best way to...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Ford Edge Titanium with 3.5 Liter Motor Behind a Motor Home
    • According to the 2015 Ford Edge owner's manual you can flat tow the 2015 Edge Titanium if it has the 2.7 liter EcoBoost or 3.5 liter motor and 6-speed automatic transmission. Since you have a 3.5 liter then as long as you have the 6-speed automatic you can flat tow your Edge using Blue Ox base plates # BX2656. And for a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. This tow bar also comes with safety cables. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A....

    • Complete Flat Towing Package Recommendation for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited
    • To tow your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with your motorhome there are several things that you will need. You will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system. The tow bar installs on your motorhome and then connects to the base plates on your Jeep. I was able to find that your 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a gross vehicle weight of up to 6500 pounds, so a tow bar that is rated for this weight that I recommend is the Roadmaster Blackhawk...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Rock Edition Behind a Motor Home
    • There are 2 base plate kits that will fit the Hard Rack models of the 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: Roadmaster base plates # 1444-1 and Blue Ox base plates # BX1134. In both cases the front cross member will be visible. These are the only options so there isn't anything that is any more hidden than them. the Blue Ox base plates cost a little less so I would go with them. For a compatible tow bar the most popular option for Wrangler owners is the Alpha, # BX7365. It is rated for 6,500...

    • Parts Recommendation for Flat Towing a 2014 Fiat 500L
    • I pulled up a copy of the owners manual for a 2014 Fiat 500L and found that the manual transmission vehicles are okay to flat tow as long as you put the vehicle in neutral. You need to check your owners manual to double check this. The first component you will need to flat tow your vehicle is a base plate kit. For that I would recommend the Roadmaster Base Plates # RM-522014-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental...

    • Recommend Base Plate and Tow Bar For 2010 Smart For Two
    • For your 2010 Smart For Two, we have the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit, part # 52285-1, and the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, part # BX1987. Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox base plate kits feature removable drawbars, so that the base plate kit is less visible when you are not towing the vehicle. Both the Roadmaster and Blue Ox base plate kit would be a good option for your 2010 Smart Car. In addition to a base plate kit, you will need a tow bar, safety cables, wiring or lighting, and a supplemental...

    • Is Brake Light Relay Required for Blue Ox Patriot Braking System BRK2012
    • A supplemental braking system like the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2012 is one of the essential components for flat towing a vehicle behind a motorhome. All of the required items to flat tow are outlined in the linked overview article. Since the Patriot is wireless and portable the installation process is quite simple as compared to other braking systems. The only other electrical component needed is a 12V outlet kit # RM-9332 which provides operating power to the Patriot. If you are using...

    • Recommended Parts Needed To Flat Tow 2000 Dodge Dakota With Automatic Transmission
    • Your 2002 Dakota can be flat-towed. I did some research and found the recreational towing instructions on page 202 of the owner's manual. There are restrictions and instructions you will need to follow in order to tow your truck. You will need several items when you want to tow your Dakota. First you will need base plates. I recommend the Blue Ox Base Plate kit, part # BX1939. For a tow bar I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7365. This comes with safety cables. If you plan...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4 Behind a Motor Home
    • It all depends on how the truck is equipped. For a 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4x4 you can flat tow it only if it has a 2-speed transfer case that has a Neutral and four-wheel drive (4 (down arrow) setting. I would go to the dealer and flip to that page of the manual and perhaps they have the exact same truck that fits that description (if the one you are looking at does not). To flat tow the truck you would need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking....

    • How To Wire A Towed Vehicle When Both Vehicles Have Separate Stop And Turn Signals
    • The Tow Ready Vehicle To Vehicle Taillight Converter, # 118158, you have referenced will not be needed since you will be staying with a 3-wire system (separate stop and tail lights)on both of your vehicles. The converter is only needed if you had a 2-wire system (combined stop and tail lights) on the towing vehicle and a 3-wire system on the vehicle being towed. I would recommend using a diode system to wire your vehicle because the diodes will prevent feedback from going from the taillights...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2012 Ford Focus Behind a Motor Home
    • There are 5 components needed to flat tow your 2012 Ford Focus and those are a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring and a supplemental braking system. The base plate for your vehicle is the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit, # RM-524430-5. You will also need safety cables, # RM-645, as they are required by law when flat towing a vehicle. You should not have a problem, but check your tow bar and make sure it is compatible with EZ5 style base plates. If it is not compatible,...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with AEV Front Bumper Behind a Motor Home
    • All of the base plates for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are designed for models that do not have an aftermarket bumper. Since yours does you will need base plates # BX88266. These base plates mount to a flat, metal section of your vehicle's bumper. Most bumpers will need to be modified for use with these brackets. It is possible that you could use an adapter with the bumper. If the bumper has D-ring mounts in the front that can be removed and the hole diameter is 7/8 of an inch...

    • Light Kit to Flat Tow a 2015 Ford F-150 Behind a Motor Home
    • For your 2015 Ford F-150 you can use 4-diode kit # RM-154. This is a more permanent installation that does require tapping into the vehicle wiring. For a more temporary solution you could use a magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A but you would need to also use tow light partners # TLP01 because of the aluminum used in the 2015 Ford F-150s.

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2009 Smart fortwo Passion
    • The first thing you will want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine the proper towing procedure of the vehicle. From the research I did, the car should be flat towable as is but you will still want to confirm by checking the owners manual. For the 2009 Smart fortwo Passion model, there are 2 base plate options. Either kit fits all models of the Smart fortwo so that would include Passion models. First is the Roadmaster EZ kit, # 52285-1. And then we have the Blue Ox...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Automatic and Manual Transmission
    • To determine if your 2003 Volkswagen Jetta Automatic can be flat towed you will want to check your owners manual or with the Volkswagen dealer to see if it can and if there would be any restrictions. I checked in our information available and it says the 1982 to 2011 Volkswagen (all models) FWD Automatics can not be flat towed. A tow dolly like the Roadmaster Tow Dolly, part # RM-2000-1, is required. It does say that all Volkswagen 5 speed manual transmissions are safe to tow. The...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Jeep Cherokee with Technology and Safety Packages
    • I checked with Blue Ox and base plates # BX1138 are a fit for a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Limited/Latitude/Sport including models with adaptive cruise control. The technology package and lane control features should not be a factor and the active braking feature is only something to look at when we cover supplemental braking. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. It is rated for 6,500 pounds and comes with safety cables. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit...

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Behind a Motor Home
    • From what I have found the 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited does NOT need to have fuses pulled to flat tow it. This means you will not need a fuse bypass. Consult the owners manual to confirm this and for other specific information on flat towing your Jeep. There are other items needed to flat tow your Jeep: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates I recommend the Roadmaster XL base plates # 1439-1. These base plates will fit without an...

The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon 2, # RM-520 . For safety cables you can use # RM-643 . The coiled...

    • Parts Needed To Flat-Tow My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Behind Motor Home
    • To determine if it is acceptable to flat-tow your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee, you will need to check your vehicle owners manual. I did some research and it looks like if your vehicle is 2-wheel drive with the 5-speed automatic you would need a lube pump. If you have a 2-wheel drive with an 8-speed automatic you will also need a lube pump. If you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle you will need to put the transfer case in the neutral position and you would be good. If you do not have a neutral...

    • The online edition of the owner's manual for the 2015 GMC Sierra 2500HD indicates on page 10-95 that the 2WD version cannot be flat towed. You CAN flat tow 4WD versions with a 2-speed transfer case that has Neutral and 4-Wheel-Drive-Low settings. The linked article provides a overview of the components needed to safely and legally flat tow. These include the tow bar, high/low hitch adapter, safety cables, a wiring/lighting kit, and base plates and a braking system on the towed vehicle....

    • Recommend Tow Bar To Flat-Tow My 2008 Smart Fortwo
    • The Blue Ox Aladdin Tow Bar, part # BX4325, actually has the lowest weight capacity of all the tow bars we have available. I can see how size of the tow bar could be a concern, but the tow bar only weighs 37 lbs and remains stored on the hitch of your RV when you are not towing. Another great feature about this tow bar is that it is non-binding, which allows for easier hookup and disconnecting. In addition to a tow bar, you will need a base plate kit, safety cables, wiring or lighting,...

    • Is Brake Light Relay Needed to Flat Tow 2015 Jeep Cherokee with Push-Button Start
    • A brake light relay, # RM-88400, will be required if your 2015 Jeep Cherokee is wired with a 4-diode light kit, # RM-154. Or you could go with a magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A instead. For a braking system that comes with the brake light relay use the Even Brake # RM-9400. If the push-button start feature does not start the engine when the brake fuse is removed, then you need to perform a normally closed installation. Consult the vehicle owners manual for the fuse locations. The...

    • Can 2015 Ram 3500 Be Flat-Towed Behind Motorhome
    • From my research I found the 2015 Ram 3500 would weigh somewhere in the neighborhood of 7,000 lbs, depending on the features, so your Ram should have no problem being towed behind your motorhome. The # BX1989 is designed for the 2500 and 3500 Ram pickup, and they will work well with the Aventa tow bar you said you already have. It sounds like you are familiar with flat-towing but if not there are 5 items needed when you want to tow a vehicle. You will need the tow bar and base plates,...

If your Tahoe is a 1500, you will need to use Blue Ox base plates, # BX1676. These base plates are compatible with the Aventa LX tow bar and safety cables, # BX7445.

The RoadMaster StowMaster Tow Bar # RM-501 is designed for cars and has a maximum weight capacity of 6,000 lbs.

    • In order to flat tow a vehicle you will need to install base plates first so the tow bar has something to attach to. For a 1985 Jeep CJ-7, you will need to use Blue Ox base plates, # BX88230. These will actually bolt to the bumper. They need to be bolted to a flat surface on the bumper and in most cases, the bumper will need to be modified and reinforced to tow the vehicle. You can then use the Adventurer tow bar, # BX7322 that you referenced. Make sure the base plates are spaced 16...

    • I am assuming you are talking about a 2005 Jeep Wrangler (TJ) but if not let me know. None of the tow bars that we carry are designed to be used with the tabs on the bumper. You will have to have base plates installed on the Jeep to use a tow bar. You will also want to keep the stock bumper since the base plates are not compatible with aftermarket bumpers. So for a stock double tube or U-channel bumper you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX1120. These base plates are compatible with the...
