Video Transcript for MaxxTow Tow Bar Wiring - Bypasses Vehicle 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.

These are great for when we have our bikes sitting on the back of our Trailhawk. The trikes tend to obscure the brake and turning lights and these sit on top of the car and are highly visible LED. 562550

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

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

We needed a fast solution for towing a Jeep Liberty behind a class C RV. This kit worked well for us. The only drawback was not the product but the vehicle. The lights had magnetic bases and the Liberty has a mostly plastic body or contours where the lights would be best placed. We used a small C channel laced through the roof rack end pieces and then secured the lights to the bar with machine screws making a removable light bar. Threading the wires through the rack, down the passenger side of the windshield and through the engine compartment and out the grille, it made it easy to connect to the RV wiring and travel safely. 483133

I want to thank Jessica and Adam for there professional and mental health service for me, after they figured out what i needed it was ordered and shipped without a problem. I had a licensed auto shop install the bracket for the tow bar and if fit perfect and i was only charged 240 dollars for labor and 30 dollars for bolts. This is a superior system very easy to take on and off and very well made in the USA. 547207

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:

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

I use these towing lights on my bike rack and they function as expected. I would give five starts but the wiring is the simple 4-wire (not in a loom) and they do not provide separate turn (amber) and stop (red) functionality to match the vehicle. For the price though, they are a solid set and will do the job. I find the magnets to be quite strong; indeed, I actually mount these lights upside down to maximize visibility of the lights on the bike rack. I attach ‘releasable’ cable ties to the lights to be on the safe side. When I fold the rack up (no bikes) and down (hauling bikes), I simply release the ties slightly and move the lights so they are facing the rear and retighten the ties. To customize these lights for my bike rack application, I purchased some loom tubing ($5) from the local box store. I considered cutting the wires and soldering them to length (which is an option), but elected to neatly fold the wires in the loom tubing back and forth and add a coat of quality electrical tape on the outside of the full loom. At each wire fold, I taped the wires and found there to be sufficient room in the loom everywhere (i.e., wires were not overstuffed), which ensures adequate heat release. Overall, this approach preserves the full functionality of the tow lights in case I trade the bike rack for a boat, which will never happen, while also providing for a clean look for my application. Of course, you could simply cable tie the extra wire, but I prefer the extra five dollars for the clean look (and added protection of the wires). Don’t obscure your tail lights with your rack! These lights will do the trick. 660114

My entire experience dealing with etrailer was great. Couldn't ask for a more helpful or informed associate helping me find the right product. The trailer lights are perfect for what I needed and helped me avoid having to trace wiring issues in the trailer itself. If I were to change anything regarding the product I would use slightly heavier gauge wiring. I did have an issue (at no fault of the product) where I had to repair the wiring and it is quite fragile. I still give the product an "A." 644293

  • Turn Signals are Dim with Brake Lights Applied on Magnetic Tow Lights
  • It doesn't sound like to me that there is anything wrong with the lights or wiring. The turn signal and brake light are both carried through the same dual filament bulb. The circuit associated with the brake light will generally be brighter than the circuit for the turn signal. I recommend switching to an LED option which will make the turn signals much brighter when the brakes are applied in comparison to a set of magnetic tow lights with an incandescent bulb. For this we have the MaxxTow...
