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.

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

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 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


Comments

Weve put about 15,000 miles on the MHcar since installing the wiring harness and have no issues what so ever which when towing is a very welcome relief. I am very happy with your product and would highly recommend it.

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

Wired a Chevy Colorado for towing behind a Motorhome. Was using wireless tow lights. Was always a challenge to place the lights on the rear bumper. Plus used untold quantities of batteries. Now just plug & go. Wiring the harness kit was real easy. Just follow step by step instructions. Only deviation was the clips with the kit crimp onto the wires I soldiered after one came lose. After that have had no problems with all the lights working on the vehicle being towed. Should have done this years ago. 485974

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.

Comments

The vehicle that I installed the wiring kit in met a tragic death last summer. The new tow vehicle also needed the same wiring kit. The kit is very complete and the instructions are great. Now, think about this........etrailer contacts customers a year later to follow up on their products. Makes you think they actually care about their customers and the products they buy. Almost unheard of in our times.

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

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

All 3 were easy to wire and the instructions were VERY helpful! Roadmaster has there stuff together when it comes to RV towing products.

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

Installation was accomplished with good instructions. One thing to watch during installation is shorting-out due to cross-wiring. I blew a fuse and was stumped for awhile why lights didn't work as advertised. It was my problem, but replacing the fuse solved it. I enjoy how the lights work without using toad-vehicle battery. 460635

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.

Product arrived on time, and was fairly easy to install.

I did not like this wiring setup. I cut both ends off because the silly bracket they supplied would not hold the rubber mounted flat wire connector firmly. I bought a 4 wire round connector and used that. I am not sure why they don't make a plug and play harness like used on the JK 419512

This was a much easier install than the Mopar kit that was defective. I received a refund on the "factory" kit and installed this one in half the time. I had to add pig tails to this kit on the right side so this isn't perfect but I had the extra wire and connectors and it was easy. 366728

I would recommend using a diode system to wire your vehicle because the diodes will prevent feedback from going from the taillights...

  • 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...

  • 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.

In addition to a base plate kit, you will need a tow bar, safety cables, wiring or lighting, and a supplemental...

  • 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 # BX2667. 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....

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Recon
  • Tow bars are not vehicle-specific but base plates are and for some Jeeps that have special bumpers the parts needed to flat tow the vehicle can change. All flat towing set-ups require the tow bar, base plates (or a towing-compatible bumper), safety cables, a wiring/lighting kit, a high/low hitch adapter and a braking system. You can check out the linked article for more on each of these items. Part # BX1126 fits the standard factory bumper only, and for your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2017 Buick Enclave with Automatic Transmission
  • Page 297 of the online owner's manual for the 2017 Buick Enclave indicates that both the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive automatic transmission versions can be flat-towed from the front(also called dinghy towing) but they CANNOT be dolly towed. Specific important preparation steps are needed at the start of each towing day and these are outlined on pages 298-300. You will want to check your own printed manual just in case it differs. Flat towing requires a few items and all of...

  • 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....

  • Parts Needed to Safely Flat Tow 2018 Subaru Crosstrek Behind 2017 Winnebago View Motorhome
  • Flat towing your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek behind your Winnebago View motorhome requires essentially the same items you used for towing your older Honda vehicle. Those basic components for flat towing include a tow bar, such as your existing Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365, base plates and a braking system for the toad, safety cables, a high/low hitch adapter, and a wiring or lighting kit of some type to keep the towed car visible. All are touched on in the linked article on flat towing. At this...

  • Can a 2017 Ford Fiesta be Flat Towed With 200 Miles on it and Recommended Parts Needed to Flat Tow
  • I checked an online version of the owner's manual about flat towing for your 2017 Ford Fiesta and although I didn't find anything in there about a mileage requirement before flat towing, it is good practice to get at least 500 miles on a new vehicle before doing anything to or with it. This gives the vehicle a chance to break-in. The manual does say to put about 300 miles on new tires so I recommend going on a little road trip before flat towing your Fiesta. To flat tow your Fiesta you...

  • Need Replacement Parts for Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 Supplementary Braking System # RM-9400
  • Flat-towing a vehicle behind a motor home requires several components. Those are a motor home-mount tow bar, a compatible vehicle base plate kit, safety cables, tow bar wiring (to operate the tail lights on the toad) and the supplementary braking system, such as the Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 that you have. The linked article covers each of these in detail. The Roadmaster Second Vehicle Kit you reference, part # RM-98400, includes a complete breakaway kit (wiring harness, cable and switch),...

  • To flat tow your 2015 Fiat 500 Pop behind your RV you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. For base plates I recommend the Blue Ox base plates # BX2801. Our installers find that the Blue Ox base plates are easier to install than other brands.

  • 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...

  • 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 Avail tow bar and safety cables, # BX7420.

  • 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...
