  • FMX Fuse

Take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. FuseMaster replaces your vehicle's FMX fuse and lets you prep for towing by simply flipping a switch. Integrated holder keeps fuses secure and functional.


Features:

  • Bypasses towed car's FMX fuse so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing fuse every time you tow
    • Stores fuse so that you won't lose it
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuse from car's battery compartment and install FuseMaster in its place
    • Put fuse into FuseMaster fuse holder
    • Mount bypass switch in center console
  • Maintains functionality of fuse when switched on
    • Flip switch to "Drive" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides fuse when switched off
    • Flip switch to "Tow" position and you're good to tow
  • Fuse controller allows the high current fuse to be turned off/on without sending high current through the switch
  • Application: FMX fuses rated at 50 amps
  • Made in the USA


Some cars can be towed only if you get under the hood and pull a fuse or fuses. If you don't remove these fuses before towing, there's a good chance that your battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination.


Roadmaster's FuseMaster makes it easy to prep your vehicle for towing. Simply remove the fuses indicated in your owner's manual and replace them with the bypass. The system will hold the removed fuses and maintain their functionality. So, once the initial installation is complete, you don't have to remove or replace your fuses again.


Whenever you want to drive your car, just make sure the switch on the bypass is flipped into the "Drive" position. When the bypass system is on, the fuse will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the FuseMaster to "Tow." Doing this will render the fuse inactive so that you can flat tow your car without its battery being drained.


Installation

This bypass installs inside your vehicle's engine compartment. To mount the FuseMaster switch, route the harness up to your center console. You will have to drill access holes in the console to run the FuseMaster through and to mount the switch.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Switch

Included with the FuseMaster are 2 stickers: "Drive" and "Tow." Once the switch is installed, you can place the stickers on your console - one on each side of the toggle - to remind you which way the switch must go for each application. Place the "Drive" sticker on the side of the toggle that has the white dot. (To drive your car, the switch must be flipped so that the side with the white dot is depressed.) The "Tow" sticker can then be placed on the opposite side.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - Bypasses Vehicle Wiring - RM-76517 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the Roadmaster FuseMaster 50 amp fuse bypass switch for towed vehicles. This'll take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. Basically what happens is some cars can be towed only if you get under the hood and pull a fuse or fuses, and if you don't remove those fuses before towing, there's a good chance that your battery's going to be drained by the time you reach your destination.So what this kit does is a fuse master. This will replace your vehicle's FMX fuse, and will let you prep for towing by just simply flipping a switch right here. Has an integrated holder, which will keep the fuses secure and functional. It includes everything laid out here on the table.

The fuse controller right here. The large fuse holder. A smaller fuse holder. Large black wire. The installation hardware, and a nice set of detailed instructions on how to connect everything.Basically, this will bypass your towed car's FMX fuse, so that you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery.

It does provide a simple alternative to removing a fuse every time you have to tow. And it stores the fuse so that you don't lose it. Installs very quickly and easily and permanently. You just basically remove the fuse from the car's battery compartment, and then install the FuseMaster in its place, put the fuse into the FuseMaster fuse holder, and then mount the bypass switch in your center console.Here's your switch right here. It maintains the functionality of the fuse when switched on, and you can flip the switch to drive position, and drive like normal, and then it'll override the fuse when it's switched off.

You flip the switch to tow position and you're good to tow.The fuse control right here allows the high current fuse to be turned off and on without sending high current through the switch. Again, the application is for FMX fuses rated at 50 amps, and these parts are made in the USA.That should do it for the review on the Roadmaster FuseMaster 50 amp fuse bypass switch for towed vehicles.

Review from a similar FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


Roadsters product worked well. I did not remove the lower dash part, and just did extreme yoga to remove and install the fuse bypass. This was the worst part. I can't believe that Honda put this fuse block in such a difficult to access location. The rest was simple. Installing the small connectors was a trick, (I also didn't use the fuse connector) but I finally got the connections in the fuse block. Drilled the hole from the outside and installed the switch. The location could have been lower and more to the left as there was a thicket portion of the dash on the back that prevented the lock nut from seating, but the switch is tight and works well. This is absolutely the way to go instead of pulling a fuse on my 2014 Honda CRV! 243910

Very easy to install in my gmc 2013 terrain. Took 5 minutes. Hardest part was drilling hole in fuse box cover. I did not have a 3/4" drill bit so has to drill out edges it largest bit I had. Was fine doing this was. Is expensive for what you get, a fuse holder ,switch, plug in and wires? 296135

Easy installation for my 14 Honda CRV. Fuse #19 was removed for this. I do not recommend installing switch where the video shows you as the wiring harness is just too short to reach. I had to splice in extra cable to reach. I suggest installing the button in the small compartment below. 799204

Review from a similar FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


etrailer installed a complete Roadmaster RV towing system on my 2019 Chevrolet Sonic RT. Installation was very professionally done and have since towed the Sonic behind my Fleetwood Excursion about 5000 miles with no issues. My Sonic has a passive door looking feature (fob) which requires a Roadmaster on/off switch kit to eliminate having to pull fuses. The kit has two switches which are mounted on the dash and labeled Drive or Tow. On this model Sonic it is important that the switches are turned on/off in the right sequence as not to affect other computer controlled systems. The passive system was new in 2019 and with the help of etrailer and Roadmaster we were able to determine the sequence. I printed the sequence on a card that I keep in the glove box. 775829

My base plate and tow bar has performed flawlessly since the day it was installed. I took a chance by installing the equipment before picking up my motorhome which was 1,300 miles away - hoping everything would match up as advertised. And it was seamless! First time hook-up went without a problem and the car towed perfectly - and has ever since. I'm totally sold on this Blue Ox towing system! 765847

  • Removing Fuses to Flat Tow a 2017 GMC Acadia Limited
    When a vehicle's owner's manual says to remove fuses I definitely recommend abiding by it. GM requires the fuses be removed in order to disable specific functions that will operate while the Acadia is set up to be flat towed. We do offer products to make the process easier whenever you're setting it up to be towed. The recommended FuseMaster bypass switches for your Acadia are # RM-76517 and # RM76514. Also, for disconnecting the battery with a switch use # RM-766.

  • Is Charge Line Kit Needed With Fuse Bypass on 2015 Chevy Equinox
    I checked with Roadmaster, and if your 2015 Chevy Equinox is a 4-cylinder and using the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass # RM-76517 you will need to install the Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit # RM-156-25. Installing this kit will maintain the charge of your Chevy's battery when towing. I have added links to videos of both the Fuse Bypass and Charge Line kit being installed in a '16 Equinox and the install will be the same as in your '15 Equinox.

  • Do Fuses Need to be Re-Installed at Each Stop When Flat Towing 2011 GMC Acadia
    You will need to follow the instructions of the owner's manual to properly flat tow your 2011 GMC Acadia without damaging it. I took a look for myself and it does say to run it at the start of the day and at each RV fuel stop, and the fuses do need to be re-installed when you do this. Removing the fuses will ensure the battery does not drain and there is unfortunately no way around this. While you are welcome to try leaving the fuses in, there is a much better option.

    You should be seeing the same "Service Power Steering" and ABS warning lights/All Wheel Drive as you've seen in the video. Since you have a 4 cylinder model of the 2012 Equinox, I would make sure that you've left the DLIS Fuse 32 in place and that you've removed fuse 16 (not fuse 15) under the hood when using the Roadmaster # RM-76517; according to one of the GM technical service bulletins, only the 2010 Equinox should have fuse 15 removed when installing the RM-76517. If you've performed...

  • Fuse Bypass Function for Flat Towing on 2016 Chevy Equinox
    The Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Switch for Towed Vehicles - 50-Amp FMX Fuse # RM-76517 that you referenced is designed to make flat towing vehicles that require fuses be pulled a much easier option than pulling the fuse. Fuses can sometimes be challenging to access and remove. Plus then you have to keep track of it. So what this does is allow you to simply flip a switch and it's all taken care of. I attached an install video for this kit on a 2016 Chevy Equinox just like yours as well.

  • Does Fuse 16 of 2015 GMC Terrain Need to Be Pulled When Flat Towing
    We have to recommend you stick with all of the recommendations that GM makes for flat towing your 2015 GMC Terrain. If they released an update that it's important to pull the 16 fuse it's for a good reason and you should do so. To make pulling the fuse a bit easier we have the Fuse bypass kit part # RM-76517 that basically allows you to just flip a switch to kill the circuit instead of pulling a fuse out.
