Work as discribed. The first time for me to use the universal kit and was a little worried about the outcome but I followed the instructions and it works great. The hardest part was routing the wire around the front end area. Wire was just enough, I recommend starting at the front end and route the wire on the passenger side. This is the side of the motorhomes 7 pin plug. Remember to stay away from the exhaust (on most trucks as mine is a Chevy 1500). Product was received within 3 days of purchase which works for me. I give Etrailer 2 thumps up for great service once again. 511182

I recently installed the Roadmaster Diode Wiring Kit on my 2021 Jeep Wrangler. As an OCD electrical engineer, I’m particular about wiring, and wasn’t thrilled about the “through the chassis frame” approach in the etrailer.com videos. Instead, after downloading the reading the installations for the OEM’s wiring kit, I choose to install the wiring through the cabin with existing wiring. The OEM kit installs on the passenger side, but since I was also installing a Brake Buddy Stealth system and needed to run wires along the driver side, I choose to go that route. Since I was pulling interior trim pieces in the vicinity of the side air bags and the seat belt locking mechanisms, I first disconnected and isolated the neutral battery connections. Bottom line, everything works and I ended up with a very clean installation. I’m considering now connecting the third high brake light and the license plate light. A project for another day... 941938

Great product, I did use my own black split loom for the entire length of the trailer wire on my towed Jeep (for appearance mostly). The diodes look heavy duty and well made. 939100

This was a fairly easy kit to install. The video was quite helpful. The hardest part was crawling around on the ground to run the wire from the from to the back. If you have access to a life it would make it a LOT simpler. 936185

Arrived promptly. Easy to install. Only issue is there was not enough wire to jump the tail light diodes. Had to supply my own. Installed in tandem with a brake light relay (RM-88400) that prevents the tail lights activating in tow mode when the Even Brake supplemental braking system depresses the brake pedal. Reduces the risk of draining the battery while being towed, as the lights run off the tow vehicle without interfering with the towed vehicles electronics. Far superior to the magnetic light set I have been using. 917329

  • Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit to 6 Pole Round Connector on 2016 Kia Soul
    First off, thank you for your recent purchases! It looks like you're getting your 2016 Kia Soul ready for flat towing, which is a rather large undertaking, but we're here to help make that as easy as possible. I'll start off by saying that after looking at your orders, there is at least 1 part you'll probably need if you don't already have it-but I will get to that shortly. The wiring diagram you're going to use for the Hy-Power Diode Kit # RM-154 depends on the wiring of both your RV...

  • What Dinghy Wiring do you Recommend for my 2019 Jeep Wrangler Moab with Led Lights
    For your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit part # RM-15267. This is our go to wiring kit in tons of cases. It has the brackets, cable, diodes and everything you will need to get your lights working properly. I linked a video that my buddy Shane did on the wiring kit on a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

  • Is Converter Needed for 2019 Jeep Cherokee Being Flat Towed by Motorhome With Separate Wiring
    Since your 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited has combined wiring, if your Fleetwood Bounder does have separate wiring for its brakes and turn signals, you will need to use the Roadmaster Brite-Lite Wiring Converter # RM-732 when installing the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154 on your Cherokee. However, please keep in mind some motorhomes have combined signals that are separated at the tow vehicle wiring so you will want to verify this with your motorhome manufacturer. Along...

  • Adapter Recommendation for a Motorhome with 7-way Towing a Tow Dolly with a 4-Way
    If your motorhome has a round 7-way with flat, blade-style pins on the inside of the connector you should have combined signals on this connector. Your motorhome may have separate circuit lights, but 99.9 percent of 7-way trailer connectors are wired for combined tail light circuits so I would be very surprised if yours did as well. You could verify this with a circuit tester like our part # PTW2993 to verify the circuits while a buddy applies the different stop and turns signals from...

  • Installation Instructions for Installing a Diode Kit for Tow Bar Wiring
    Sounds like you are trying to use a diode kit like the Roadmaster Diode kit part # RM-154 to install tow bar wiring on a vehicle with separate function taillights. Running the wiring kit to the front turn signal of the tow vehicle wouldn't work because it would only cause the front blinkers to illuminate. This would be pointless since it's the back lights you want to illuminate. The diodes of this kit prevent backfeeding, so the front lights would illuminate but not the back. To see...

  • Do The Towed Vehicle's Turns Signals Get Used With the Roadmaster Hy-Power Diode Kit

The turn signal bulb will then not be used while the vehicle is in tow but it would still work as normal while driving the vehicle. That said, if you want to use the turn signal bulbs on the vehicle while in tow all you need to do is use the Roadmaster 6-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles with Separate Lighting part # 154-792-118158...

    Yes, you would just wire the green and yellow stop/turn brake circuits from the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154 to your brake lights on your 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If you want to utilize your amber turn signals on your Jeep while flat towing you can use the Wiring Kit # 154-792-118158 instead which comes with a converter and the extra diodes you need to separate your brake and turn signals. I have attached photos of both wiring options for you to reference.

  • Wiring Harness to Flat Tow a 2014 Mini Cooper
    The Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, part # RM-154 will work great for flat-towing your Cooper. Since you have a 3-wire(separate) system, the brake light and turn signals are sent along different wires. You can use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to test your wiring. Have someone sit in the driver seat and run through the functions while you test the wires at the back of the tail lights.

  • Recommended Flat Towing Wiring Harness for 2000 Jeep Wrangler Towed Behind Motorhome
    I'd recommend the Hopkins flat towing wiring harness, part # HM56202. The harness is a plug and play installation, with no cutting or splicing required. You'd simply locate the point behind the taillight assemblies where the factory plug connects to the taillight. You'd unplug that connection, and plug the Hopkins harness inline at that connection. The connectors with the yellow wire plug inline on the driver's side, and the connectors with the green wire plugs inline on the passenger side....

    The Roadmaster hardwired diode kit # RM-154 for flat towing a car will not differ much from a similar kit from another maker, such as Blue Ox kit # BX8848.

I linked a series of helpful articles concerning tow bar wiring options as well as installation videos for both kits.

    The bulb and socket kit # RM-155 is one of the recommended tow bar wiring harnesses for your 2012 Fiat 500. But the only way to know for sure if there is space is to drill a tiny hole in the back of the tail light assembly and then use a depth gauge (straightened coat hanger) , push it in the hole until it stops, mark the depth on the hanger, then measure that distance. You will need at least 2-1/4 inches. In addition to the wiring you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables,...
