Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring RM-155 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number RM-155. This is the road master taillight wiring kit with the included sockets and bulbs. This kit is going to let you use your toed vehicles, brake, running and signal lights without taping into the vehicle wiring. Please note, to get this installed your toed vehicle must have enough room inside the tail light lens housing for an extra bulb and socket assembly. The size hold that you're going to need in order to get the socket mounted in the taillight housing is going to be one inch in diameter. You can use a one inch hole saw or a rotary cutting tool to make that hole. When you're installing this your wiring is going to be routed beneath the vehicle.

It's going to come with the protective wire loom, you're going to get three feet of this loom to protect certain areas of the wiring from sharp edges. All you have to do is simply cut the length that you need and fit if over your wires to protect the wiring from those sharp areas. This unit does maintain the manufacturers warranty on toed vehicles by avoiding any involvement, whether it's a logical system, the overall measurement of the bold measuring from the very base to here at the end of the lens, that's going to give us a measurement of about two in one quarter of an inch. Measuring from the flanks to the top of the bulb is going to be about two inches and the bulb type that this system uses 1157. It's going to include all the necessary wiring. You're going to get a harness right here, this is going to be 30 feet long, it's got the dust caps on the connectors and this is going to be your female connectors on both sides.

You're going to get the 30 feet long wiring. You're also going to get the six foot long wiring, again wiring connectors. They're going to be your main lenses, it's going to be the hardest it runs in between the back of the RV and the toed vehicle. You're going to get three feet of half inch split loom, you're going to get the two lights and the sockets, you're going to have about eight inches of wiring coming out the back of the sockets, you're going to get all necessary connectors. You're going to get the blue connectors for single wire connections, these are your butt connectors. You're going to get yellow butt connectors for two wire connections and you're going to get a small ring terminal to make your ground connection.

You're going to get zip ties to tidy up any wires underneath the vehicle and you're going to get the included instructions. These are going to walk you through the installation process step by step. The kit is made in the USA. Now when it comes to the installation you will need to gain access to the back of both taillight assemblies. You're going to need to find a suitable location to mount the bulb and socket inside the tail light housings. The bulb socket must be installed underneath red lenses and it must at least be a quarter inch clear between the bulbs and the lenses.

You'll need to drill out that one end circular hole through the back of the taillight housings. Right here around the flange it's going to have spring loaded taps that encircle the socket, you'll need to bend those outward slightly, snap the bulb into the hole that you just drilled and that's going to provide the nice tight fit that we need to make sure these don't vibrate loose and come out of the taillight housing. Then you're going to need to attach one end of the 30 foot harness at the front of the vehicle for connecting the URV, at the other end of the 30 foot harness you can cut off the connector. This is going to be the end that's going to run to the back of the vehicle, that's the taillight assemblies for connecting the end of the bulb and socket wiring. Again you're going to route the wiring beneath the vehicle and you can use the included zip tires just to straight the wires up and out of the way. Then you would use the included butt connectors to attach the electrical harness to the taillights, you will need to reinstall everything, make your ground connection and clean up your installation and then you're going to be ready to connect your six foot wiring harness between the plug at the front end of the vehicle and the back of your URV. Again, instructions are included, very detailed, they're going to walk you through the entire installation process step by step. That's going to do it for our review of part number RM-155. This is the road master taillight wiring kit with the bulb and sockets.

This product was easy to install but it took some time routing the wiring harness from the front bumper to the rear. Pick up some extra zip ties, you will need several. The lighting system is independent allowing for the use of LED bulbs. Great product. 239278

Great idea. After years of towing with magnetic lights now all I have to do is plug it in, and I'm done. The kit kit comes with more parts and wire than I needed and was simple to install on my 2010 JK. 81930

I purchased this wiring kit for use in my 1999 Mazda Miata. I did not want to cut into the OEM wiring harness, even using the diode method to safeguard the system. I felt that the fully separate wiring harness was more to my way of thinking for getting my car ready to tow. I did not follow the included instructions that said to run the flat 4 wiring beneath the car, zip tying it along the way free of the exhaust and moving parts. I ran it through the firewall, beneath the dash, under the center console, and under the carpeting back into the trunk area. I then installed the bulb holders as instructed in my OEM Miata taillight fixtures. I am happy to have all the wiring up and out of the way of potential road hazard damage, as well as the hot and/or moving parts beneath the car. It works perfectly, and I am glad that I purchased this kit, and also that I decided to install it the way I felt best to do so. It took much longer my way, but I'll never have to mess with it again. 221250

Found this item was wired with the brake lights for the brown wires and turn/running lights for colored wires and this fact kept me from getting this done very rapidly. Once identified, went together really nicely and actually grounded to frame for higher light output. I upgraded 3 wire into 2 wire converter with "Roadmaster Brite-lite 3 to 2 Wiring Converter" and they are as bright as the lights already in the housing. Except for that wiring issue, it would have been excellent. As to performance after install, great. Customer service was nice from Roadmaster as well. Did receive a call back message from etrailer a couple days later. 86819

Continues to work as it should! Very pleased with end product after installation by myself and continue to be happy every time I hook up since! Nice item! And customer service...Well they checked back with me a year later to see if I needed anything. How is that for the best customer service around! A

I like this product and would definitely buy it again. I like not having to splice into the vehicle wiring and install diodes, etc. It is a clean installation with good instructions. All I have to do to hook up the lights is raise the hood of the towed car and pull out the pigtail and hook it to the motorhome. It is powered by the motorhome and does not run down the battery in the towed car. Great product. 285105

Works great! Would definitely recommend it.

The overall concept is a great idea. No splicing into the vehicle and makes for a cleaner look instead of magnetic lights or possibly damaging the vehicle's electrical system. Now for the issues. The kit needs to be reworked to add additional footage of wire and to ensure the self tapping screw is included. I followed the video instructions to a tee and had to purchase additional wire adding to my precious time and cost. We see great ideas and then get inconveniences during the install which is unacceptable! With that I had to get additional butt connectors to add the additional wire. The self tapping screw was missing and of course did not realize until I was ready for it. The video instructional needs to add additional alerts for drilling into the taillights- the tolerances are very tight - I drilled into the same exact spot as the video shows but when I inserted the factory bulb it was making contact with the bulb from the kit. You need a more detailed and measured way to the exact spot that has to be drilled. I hope this will not affect the bulbs performance or stability. The idea of "fishing" the lines thru are terrible. You have to remember we are diy's and don't have the fancy pit or lift. We are laying on the ground trying to squeeze underneath with a floor jack. I had to loosen the cover before the fuel tank to get the wires thru. I am not bad mouthing the product, I just want to alert other diy's to have all the parts, extra zip ties to ensure the cleanest look, extra wire and butt connectors before you start. The no splicing wire and own bulbs concept is 5 stars, the kit is 1 star and the instructional video is 2 stars. Unless this gets updated I will not recommend to others. 409953

Great product. Installed on a 2006 Jeep unlimited. Ran the wire along passenger side to firewall. Through the firewall, under the carpet to the back passenger side. Drilled a hole through back inside panel and connected to passenger side lights. For connections, we removed the taillights (3 screws). There is a lights metal piece between the two existing bulbs. Removed that and cut a hole for the supplied lights. Plenty of wire was supplied. 2 hours work, saved several hundred dollars, (one shop wanted $800 to wire lights). 447047

Very simple to install. I had plenty of room for another bulb. One downside was the 1inch hole they have you drill is not large enough for the bulb to go thru so I had to ream the hole a little. 88844


Comments

I had the same problem with the 1 hole saw that I used. After measuring with a micrometer, I found that the bulb is about .975 and the hole saw was only about .955. I reamed the hole with a 1 spade bit and the bulb went right in.

This Wiring Kit went in just as advertised. Of course it took me longer than I expected but that is normal for me. I work slow but my result is always a first class install! :-) 559749

I bought the Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit with Bulbs RM-155 to install on my 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for towing behind our motorhome. I watched the install video before it arrived. With the help of my friend Steve we had it installed and working in about 2 hours. The install was easy. Routing the wiring took the largest amount of time. Cutting out the bulb holes in the tail light assembly was a bit scary but it was easy just like in video. Thanks Etrailer for great service and really helpful how to videos. Chuck B. 288566

Good instructions. Everything need is included for 4flat connections. One bulb socket arrived with the ground (black) wire loose in the bag. The solder joint had failed. Resoldered but had to remove the other wires and rubber insert from the bulb socket to avoid melting. Not a shining example for Roadmaster. 147006

Overall, pretty happy with this product. I found the quality of the product to be very good. I was lucky in that I own the same year and model car as in the installation video on the etrailer.com website, so following along was fairly easy. It took my 15 year old son and I about 2 hours to install. Most of that was trying to run the cable underneath the car, which is very low to the ground even when jacked up. I would have preferred to run the cable through the interior, but was not able to locate an adequate entry point into the cabin. Overall, installation is pretty straight forward. It might be more difficult for vehicles who's entire light fixture can not be removed. The product works great and as expected. 160603

I knew I didn't want to deal with magnetic lights for towing my Jeep behind the RV so I purchased this Roadmaster kit. I was a little apprehensive since I have virtually no knowledge with electricity. However, installation of this kit on my 2002 Jeep Wrangler was a breeze! It took me (by myself) about 3 hours of working slowly (to make sure I wasn't cutting the wrong wire!) and frequently checking the installation video on this website. The most difficult thing included in the installation is to make two holes to fit the bulbs; for this you'll need to probably go out and buy a hole saw from HD or Lowe's. Great product, easy installation! 162459

I can't really write a review of the product itself because I am not knowledgeable enough. However, I have bought from etrailer everything that was needed to install the towing connection between the RV and the toad and the toad itself. I just ordered the materials I need to add a new car to the towing. They are absolutely the best. The service is perfect, the products arrive on time and are in the best shape. etrailer has my back. 551180

  • Compact Cars with Automatic Transmissions that Can Be Flat Towed
  • It is very common for automatic transmission vehicles to need to be started and ran for a couple minutes every couple of hours or at every fuel stop. This is because the engine lubricates while running, so every couple hours of towing the engine will need to be lubricated again by running. Typically, an RV will need to be refueled every 5 to 6 hours, so the towed vehicle can be started whenever the RV needs fuel. In my research, I found several compact, automatic cars that can be flat...
