    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

    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

    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

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

    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

    A great wiring kit that works well for protecting both vehicles. Requires more thought than the plug and play kits but atleast you know exactly what you are getting. 72412

    Very happy with the wiring kit. I had a local truck accessories dealer install it and they liked it much better than the brand they had been using and plan to switch. 36550

    • 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...

    • Recommended Parts to Flat Tow a 2017 Ford F-150 4x4 Behind and RV
    • The Roadmaster Nighthawk # RM-676 is an excellent tow bar choice. It is indeed compatible with the EZ5 base plates, # RM-524431-5, for your 2017 Ford F-150. Since the tow bar comes with safety cables you will not need to add any of those to your order. Lighting kit # RM-154 will also work with the truck. This lighting kit uses 4-Way flat connectors so to use it with the 6-Way end on the tow bar's wiring you will also need connector # RM-910030-7 to mount to the front of the truck. Then...

    • 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...

    • Can a 2017 Chevy Colorado be Flat Towed?
    • Yes, you can flat tow your 2017 Chevy Colorado so long as it has a Four-Wheel Drive Low setting. There are a number of things you will need to flat tow, starting with base plates. If your Colorado does not have Adaptive Cruise Control, I recommend going with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-523182-5. If you do have Adaptive Cruise Control or your Colorado is a Z71 Trail Boss or ZR2 model you would need to go with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1721. For a tow bar, a great option...

    • 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....

    • 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...

    • 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...

    • 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....

    • Wiring Kit For 2014 Ford Flex That Will Isolate Voltage From an RV
    • The best option for isolating the RV wiring from the wiring of your 2014 Ford Flex is to use a magnetic set of tow lights. I recommend using the Roadmaster Deluxe Magnetic Tow Lights # RM-2100. This wiring kit will keep the RV lighting completely separate from your 2014 Ford Flex wiring. If this is your primary concern this is the best option that we currently offer for the 2014 Ford Flex. another option we offer for a 2014 Ford Flex is Roadmaster Universal Tow Bar Wiring # RM-154...

    • Installation Of Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring For 2011 Ford Flex
    • The Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring, part # RM-154, includes a 30-ft long 4-wire harness so it should reach the rear of your 2011 Ford Flex with no problem. I have attached a link to an installation video you can check out. When running the wiring you want to make sure you avoid any sharp edges or any areas that will become very hot and damage the wiring. The kit includes 3 ft of wire loom that can be used to protect the wiring when you run it beneath your Flex.

    • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 1985 Jeep CJ-7 Wrangler
    • 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...

For base plates I recommend the Roadmaster EZ base plates # 52285-1.

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.

    • 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,...
