Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76511

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


  • Bypasses towed car's mini-fuse so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing a fuse every time you tow
    • Stores fuse so that you won't lose it
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuse from car's fuse box and install FuseMaster in its place
    • Put fuse into FuseMaster fuse holder
    • Mount bypass switch near fuse box
  • Maintains functionality of mini-fuse when switched on
    • Flip switch to "drive" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides mini-fuse when switched off
    • Flip switch to "tow" position and you're good to tow
  • Made in the USA


  • Application: ATM mini-fuse not exceeding 20 amps
  • Harness length: 13"

Note: This FuseMaster bypass is not designed to hold an ATM micro fuse. If your vehicle has a micro fuse, you will need to use an ATM mini fuse of the same amperage (not included) to install in the FuseMaster.

Some cars can only be towed if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. If you don't remove this fuse prior to 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 fuse indicated in your car's manual and replace it with the bypass. The system will hold the removed fuse and maintain its functionality. So once the initial installation is complete, you don't have to remove or replace your fuse again.

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


The preferred location for mounting the FuseMaster switch is the access panel inside your vehicle that leads to your fuse box. This switch must be mounted on a plastic surface that is no thicker than 1/4". Do not mount the switch on a metal surface.

Roadmaster FuseMaster Switch

Included with the FuseMaster are 2 stickers: "Drive" and "Tow." Once the switch is installed, you can place the stickers on the access panel - 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, 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 FuseMaster Fuse Bypass Review

All right, today we're going to show you the Roadmaster FuseMaster fuse bypass, part number RM76511. With this part number this is what you get. This is the actual switch itself right here. It has overall length of 14 inches. It has a fuse holder right here. It does not come with the fuse where this end goes into.

You pull out the fuse and that goes here. If you have a mini fuse, you will have to supply the type of ATM fuse that sits in here. This is rated up to 20 amps. Where it goes into your fuse box you get this really handy adapter which will plug into your fuse box and you've got these leads that you're going to place these ends with and slide them onto here. It makes it a lot easier to plug this into your fuse box. Also optional, it has a couple of labels for drive and tow, so you know which way you want to have it switched or when you're driving your vehicle down the road that's tow mode or the white dot depressed.

When you want to be towing behind your RV, that would be tow mode. To install this on your dash board or wherever you do install this, it's going to require a 3/4 inch hole. Then to clamp it in place it has this nut that you thread on. The reason behind this is that some vehicles require a fuse be pulled whilst being towed behind the RV. Basically this lessens the battery drain on the vehicle.

With that that'll finish it for the Roadmaster FuseMaster fuse bypass, part number RM76511.

What I needed to take care battery drain situation. After checking around, price was comparably a good price, but nevertheless, this item is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive for what it is, a plastic switch, fuse holder, wire, and some terminals, with a Roadmaster label. No complaints for etrailer, but the Roadmaster part is just too expensive. I guess I knew that when I ordered it, though. 78665


Terminals would not stay in place regardless of how they were ed. I modified the terminals by using a mini-fuse tap that worked like a plug. Inserted the supplied terminals into the tap, then secured them with electrical tape. Next, I cut off the wire pig-tail on the tap. The mini-fuse tap actually fits in micro-fuse with a click, and is much more secure than the spades supplied by Roadmaster. For the price, it should have come with plug, instead of having to modify the tiny spade connectors.

Thanks for the follow-up after a year of use, and for the additional information!

Absolutely outrageous price and I have to do the same modification to the connection to the fuse panel using a mini fuse connection. The original design is terrible.

The install on my 2013 Honda Fit was real difficult. The fuse panel is in an extremely cramped, tight location. It requires a young, slim, supple person to be able to twist around upside-down to be able to even see the fuse panel. ( not Fusemaster's fault ) The Honda fuse is a MICRO, and has the metal tabs on the outside edges of the plastic body. The section of the Fusemaster that fits in the fuse socket just has 2 wires, each with a flat blade on each end of the 2 wires. These blades wouldn't stay in place because there is no plastic section between them, as there is in a fuse. I labored long and hard to fashion a real tiny piece of wood to jam in between the prongs, forcing them to the outside of the fuse socket, where they could remain in contact with the metal part. Fusemaster should develope a series of inter-changeable ends which would mimic the fuse-type being replacing. (MICRO, MINI, etc.) This way it could be pushed right in, just like a fuse, instead of trying to put 2 tiny blades into slots that want to spit them out as soon as you look the other way. Maybe these blades stay put better in a MINI socket, but if you have a Honda, I suggest you pay to have someone else do the install. Would I buy it again? Yes. Would I install it myself in place of a MICRO fuse? No way! 211531

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

by: Jim D07/13/2016

This is a great solution to an aggravating problem of pulling a fuse before towing. First, the fuse, which is miss-identified in the 2014 Honda CR-V driver's manual, is nearly impossible to access. Further, the advice in the driver's manual that if you tow less than 8 hours per day you do not need to remove the fuse, is incorrect. I discovered that only 4-5 hours was enough to kill the battery. Installing the RM76511 bypass seemed, at first, to be a piece of cake. I drilled the 3/4" hole and inserted the switch for a pretty tight fit, then found it impossible to screw on the plastic retainer nut. I accidentally discovered that this portion of the Honda CR-V dash can be unclipped and pulled out so you can easily get to the back of the threated switch and tighten the retainer nut. Had I not discovered this I would have not been able to install the "Drive/Tow" switch. Unless I missed it, there is no mention of this in the video or written instructions. After getting the switch installed the rest of the installation was easy. 271468

I had looked for several months for a product just like this. This fuse bypass included all the capabilities that I had looked for - it removed the requirement for me to pull a specific fuse each time I towed my car with my motorhome, otherwise the car battery would be depleted because I had to leave the ignition switch in the accessory position. The fuse bypass allowed me to just press a switch instead of removing the fuse. Also, etrailer has a very helpful online video that shows how to install the fuse bypass. Unfortunately, I had not recognized that bypassing this accessory fuse also terminated power to the "cigarette" lighter on which the automatic braking device for my towed vehicle depended, so I have not installed the fuse bypass. If you have need for such a device, be sure that the circuit that is turned off does not include a device that is essential for the continued operation of your vehicle. 371901

Worked well. I did not like the fuse position as it was inaccessible when the bypass was installed so I moved the fuseholder position in the wire nearer to the fusebox end so that I could access it after installation. I watched the etrailer video which was useful but I wanted the switch installed in a blank switch panel rather than down low as shown in the video. I was concerned about the size of the hole to be drilled in the blank switch panel but it worked out well. I use plastic epoxy rather than the supplied nut to hold the switch in place. This also strengthened the drilled out blank switch panel. Only 4 stars because I had to make these mods, but the result is a nice installation using the supplied fuse bypass parts. 201358

I love the fuse bypass. I used it in my Honda CRV which requires a fuse to be pulled each time the car is towed, then replaced when you want to use the radio. Once installed, taking out the radio fuse is a simple push of a switch. The only problem I encountered was gettin the two loose ends into the fuse socket, and once there I felt it necessary to jam in some foam to keep them in place. It would help if Roadmaster would connect the leads like an actual fuse. Other than that it works exactly as advertised. 103167


So right you are. I could not get the two loose ends into the fuse socket. It was designeed for a Mini Fuse not the MICRO fuse in my Honda Fit. Roadmaster need to fix this with an actual fuse-like connector end.

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

- RM76511

by: Scott S.09/20/2017

The product is a must for anyone towing a Honda CR-V that has only one 12volt accessory power outlet. When you remove the fuse as recommended by Honda's owner's manual to save on battery drain while towing, you also cut the power to your 12v outlet. Thus your brake assist will not work. Along with the Fusemaster you will also need to install an additional power outlet not using that fuse's circuit. The Fusemaster is not only necessary to help save your battery, but also your mind and body. One would have to be rubber man in order to remove that fuse over and over again. The Fusemaster makes up for a very sub-optimal design on Honda's part. 434596

by: Larry J02/06/2015

After a lot thought and reading the bad reviews but bought it anyway knowingly. Roadmaster needs to change design especially for the Honda make into mini fuse blank with wires coming out opposite end to fuse bypass hardness.It wasn't easy to install after few tricks finally got it. Shame on Honda knowing you need to pull the accessory fuse to tow,then locate it where takes thirty minutes to remove. Wasn't fun to install bypass fuse but we'll worth it in long run. Thanks to etrailer & staff knowing that you consider the best products for your customers and provide the technical support & videos for us. 172719

I installed the Fusemaster fuse bypass switch on my 2012 Chevy Sonic. Install was a snap. It is mounted on the lower dash to the left of the steering wheel and above the fuse panel. I had to cut the fuse cap off and remove the wire loom to get the plastic nut off the switch. The fusemaster switch will be a great time and effort saver since the DLIS fuse on the Sonic is a pain to remove. 237201

Much more difficult to install than videos indicated, in part due to difficulty accessing fuse location on the CRV. Manufacturer would be wise to configure terminals that connect to fuse block into one easy to plug in connector that mimics a fuse rather than the two terminals that are hard to grip and separately install in a very tight space. Also very dufficult to fully seat the two terminals in the fuse contacts in the fuse block due to right quarters. Concerned that over time the terminals will work loose. A fuse-shaped connector would be the solution. 151825

Great help from etrailer representative in getting just the right part! Easily installed by someone who had never heard of the Fusemaster fuse by-pass. ( My son- in- law did the research to find it). Have only used it for a short trip but it worked great! No more having to pull the mini-fuse out of my car (it was difficult to pull out even with a fuse puller) to keep the battery from going dead after five hours of being towed! Just push a button! Looking forward to testing it out on a 2,000 mile trip in the next few weeks. 295242

Very nice. heavy duty. works great. no problems. Towed a car behind RV all around the country. Makes it easy to connect and disconnect on inclines or odd angles. Installing the associated connections to the front of the Chevy Sonic wasn't bad, took about 3 hours; medium screwdriver/drill/wrench skillz needed. I got the associated fuse kill switch also, makes it all look real nice. The folks at etrailer walked me through all the ordering and needs and were very helpful. Highly recommend them and this product. 320184

Product is excellent, how to video was excellent, but, Hondas idea for how to make it impossible to get a fuse out or replaced is a killer. etrailer got the package sent quickly, has a wonderful customer service and their video is very helpful. I did this job in 30 min. If it had not been so difficult to do the fuses, I could have done this in 15 minutes without any problem. etrailer is the best. Thanks 178349

The Road Master FuseMaster was just what I needed. For sure better then climbing under the dash every time I hooked up the car to be towed. I must say once I received it the price seems to be much too high. I check several electronic supply houses and found everything except the pins to replace the existing fuse. It would have cost me under $20 to build it myself. It is however a great time saver. 90580

Product received on time as promised and is now installed. It works as advertised and will use it to bypass the acc fuse on my CRV while towing it behind motor home. Since the CRV has micro fuses in the position the product was to replace, it was very hard to install the ends in the fuse holder. It would have been better if the end used to replace the fuse actually had a fuse attached to it. 206569

by: John F.04/29/2015

Good product, however the prongs that plug onto the fuse block are flimsy. They bend too easy, need to come up with a connector similar to the fuse to plug into the fuse block. the wire loom also could stand to be a few inches longer. I had to mount my switch on the side of the coin tray in my 2011 Honda CR-V towards the steering wheel, 188784

by: W. Dore 07/19/2016

This product though I was able to make work for my application was not the exact match for my vehicle. The connections that take the place of the fuse in the fuse box were not compatible. My CRV has micro fuses and the connection prvided was for mini fuses. However once I got past that problem everything else worked fine. 273696

This product is the perfect solution for the hassle of having to pull a fuse from a vehicle on a regular basis. The only shortcoming I had is the glue on the "Tow" and "Drive" decals.

The only problem I had installing this was removing the micro fuse and getting the red adapter to plug all the way in. I had to grind some of it plastic off the adapter to get it to slide in. Not the fault of the adapter but just the way Honda has the fuse for the radio and where it is located. 421480

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • There are at least 5 items you will need to flat tow your 2014 Honda CR-V: base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking. Cost of installation is going to be different depending on where you go. You would have to know what a place charges for labor per hour. I can give you rough estimates for installation time. For base plates you can use Blue Ox model # BX2258. I have included a link to a video that shows how they install. Blue Ox gives them an installation...

  • Tow Bar Wiring Harnesses to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • We have several tow bar wiring harnesses for the 2014 Honda CR-V. I have included a link to the options that will fit. A brake light relay should not be required if you use the SMI Air Force One. It does look like you will need to pull a fuse to flat tow the CR-V. Consult the owners manual to confirm. To make this as easy as flipping a switch you can use fuse bypass # RM76511.

  • Flat Towing a 2016 Chevy Sonic Behind a Motorhome
  • To flat tow your 2016 Chevrolet Sonic you're going to need several items. For starters, I recommend the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar # BX7365 which connects to your RV by your trailer hitch receiver. The arms swivel, making it easier to connect to your Sonic and the Alpha comes with safety cables. Next you'll need the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1703 which is compatible with your Sonic. It's fairly easy to install, with no welding and is barely noticeable when the tabs are removed. For...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Chevy Equinox Behind an RV
  • You are correct about active air shutters; they are motorized. Since your 2017 Chevy Equinox does not have them or adaptive cruise control you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX1689. I have included a link to a video showing an example installation for you. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. This tow bar is rated for up to 6,500 pounds and it comes with safety cables. For lighting I recommend the diode kit # RM-15267. It also comes with a coiled umbilical and...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Blue Ox does make some good products and the Patriot # BRK2016 is one of the best braking systems you could use. It is relatively easy to install, much more so than some other braking systems out there. And it can be used with active power assist braking systems. I would go with it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on supplemental braking systems for you to view. For the BX2258 base plates, make...

  • Recommendations on Flat Towing a 2017 Honda Fit with a Manual Transmission.
  • According to the Owner's Manual, the 2017 Honda Fit is towable behind a motorhome if it has the manual transmission. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) model cannot be flat towed. The base plate that I recommend for the Honda Fit is the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX2261. The Blue Ox base plate is a custom fit piece that is hidden beneath the vehicle's body. Blue Ox also provides all the hardware needed. Blue Ox does state that the bumper fascia will have to be removed and...

  • How Does the Steering Wheel of a Push Button Start Vehicle Get Unlocked for Flat Towing
  • For your 2011 Ford Edge you want to first consult the owners manual to determine what the flat towing procedure should be and if there are any restrictions. Typically on vehicles with push button starts to get the vehicle to unlock the steering wheel you would need to have the key in the car, and without pressing the brake of the vehicle press the start button. That will put it in ACC mode which should unlock the steering wheel. The procedure you will need to follow will be outlined...

  • Fuse Bypass to Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Actually, fuse bypass # RM76512 is not recommended for the 2014 Honda CR-V. The correct one is # RM76511. You should only have to pull that one fuse. But you can check your vehicle owners manual to be sure. I have included a link to a video to the right showing how the fuse bypass installs. Fuse bypass # RM76512 is listed for a 2012 - 2014 Chevy Cruze.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 GMC Terrain Behind a Motor Home
  • To tow a vehicle behind a motor home with all wheels on the ground the first step is to consult the vehicle owners manual. Some vehicles have special requirements or restrictions and procedures for flat towing. If your model can be flat towed then the first thing you are going to need are base plates on the 2014 GMC Terrain. The base plates provide a proper and secure attachment point for the tow bar. Blue Ox base plates # BX1689 are listed as a fit for all models of the 2014 GMC Terrain. There...

  • Compact Cars with Automatic Transmissions that Can Be Flat Towed
  • It is very common for automatic transmission vehicles to need to be started and ran for a couple minutes every couple of hours or at every fuel stop. This is because the engine lubricates while running, so every couple hours of towing the engine will need to be lubricated again by running. Typically, an RV will need to be refueled every 5 to 6 hours, so the towed vehicle can be started whenever the RV needs fuel. In my research, I found several compact, automatic cars that can be flat...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 GMC Terrain AWD Behind an RV
  • I completely understand how you feel. Flat towing a vehicle can seem overwhelming but I am happy to walk you through the parts you will need. The first thing to check is the vehicle owner's manual. I checked it online and on page 266 it states that front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive models can be flat towed! So that is a step in the right direction. You will also want to look through that section of your owner's manual for the procedures required to flat tow your 2017 GMC Terrain. The...

  • Recommended Parts for Flat Towing 2012 Chevrolet Equinox with 36-Foot Georgetown Motorhome

You may care to glance at the linked article that covers each of these in detail. We also always suggest checking your owner's manual for any guidance related to flat towing the vehicle. I recommend staying with one brand of base plate and tow bar since doing so avoids the added cost and complexity of the adapters...

  • Do Fuses Need to be Pulled When Flat-Towing a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • Yes, you absolutely have to remove the fuse from your 2013 Honda CR-V when flat-towing. One option that will alleviate this process is installing a Roadmaster # RM76511 Fuse Bypass System. This unit is basically a permanent solution being that it is hardwired into your vehicle. There is a rocker switch that you depress when you are either driving which will activate the fuse or towing which will de-activate your fuse. By using this product, you do not have to worry about removing the...

Consult your owners manual for additional flat towing information. You will need base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow a vehicle. For base plates you can use Blue Ox base plates # BX3332 that you referenced. For a compatible tow bar I reocmmend the Alpha, #...

  • Recommended Flat Towing Setup for a 2014 Chevy Sonic
  • The base plate kits we currently offer will fit all models of the 2014 Chevy Sonic. I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 base plate kit # 523173-4 because the brackets are nearly invisible once installed. It's a simple installation as no welding is required. Note that trimming of your spoiler, air dam, grill or fascia may be required on some models. Since you are flat towing your 2014 Chevy Sonic, you will need the following items: a tow bar, safety cables, wiring and a supplemental braking...

  • Recommendation for Supplemental Braking System on 2013 Chevrolet Sonic
  • The continuous power assist braking system or active power assist system works by monitoring your day-to-day braking habits to formulate a normal braking pattern. The system will detect a change in your rate of braking force and your position on the brake pedal and interpret this as an emergency situation. If the system feels that there is not enough pressure being applied to the brakes, it will initiate an override mode and activate the vehicles full braking force. Typically, a supplemental...

  • Can I Flat Tow a 2015 Honda Fit EX with Manual Transmission Behind A Motorhome
  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2015 Honda Fit EX with manual transmission behind a motorhome. There is slight differences between the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521569-4 and EZ5 # RM-521569-5. The main difference is the EZ4 is more universal and will have more fit options. Both will feature Twistlock series brackets that are virtually invisible.

  • Parts Recommendation to Flat Tow a 2014 Ford Edge
  • I checked the owners manual for your 2014 Ford Edge and under the recreational towing section there was no mention of needing to pull a fuse. Because of that I would not recommend you install the Roadmaster Fusemaster you have or pull any fuses. To flat tow your vehicle you will need to first start with a base plate kit. If you have adaptive cruise control you would want the part # 524426-1, without adaptive cruise control you would want part # 4408-1. In addition to the base plates,...

  • Battery Drain When Flat Towing 2015 Ford Explorer

If the manual says you have to pull a fuse/fuses you can bypass this by installing a Roadmaster # RM76511 Fuse Bypass System. If the manual says you must disconnect the battery you can use the Roadmaster - Auto Battery Disconnect, # RM-766. It is specifically designed for vehicles that have something that drains the battery while being...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2016 Honda HR-V with Manual Transmission Behind a Class C Winnebago

You'll also want to consult your owner's manual to make sure your vehicle is able to be flat towed without damaging it. The Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 is a great option to tow your Honda. It has a large hookup raidus and self-aligns so hooking up is easier and smoother. It connects right up to the EZ4 Base Plates # RM-521570-4 that are confirmed to fit your HR-V. To...

  • Estimated Installation Time for Blue Ox Base Plates on a 2013 Ford Edge
  • Blue Ox estimates the installation time of base plate kit # BX2628 at 3 hours for an experienced installer. They also add the following comment: The first installation of a particular baseplate, and installation by untrained individuals will likely increase installation time substantially. In addition to the base plates you will also need a compatible tow bar. For the Blue Ox base plates the most popular compatible tow bar is the Avail, # BX7420, which also comes with safety cables....

  • Does Battery of 2014 Honda CRV Need to Be Disconnected to Flat Tow Vehicle Behind Motorhome
  • There's no need to disconnect the battery. Most supplemental braking system need battery power available in order to operate. According to the recreational towing procedures listed in the owner's manual, if you'll be towing more than 8 hours a day, they recommend removing one or two fuses (depending on how your vehicle's equipped) to prevent the battery from being discharged. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to do this regardless of how long you're flat towing. If your version of...

To fit your 2017 you can use the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-523184-4 or EZ5 # RM-523184-5 Base Plate Kits. These will work for you as long as you don't have the adaptive cruise control or active air shutters on your Equinox. If you do then the Blue Ox # BX1689 will fit.

  • 2015 Honda Fit Fuse Bypass Switch Recommendation
  • I checked with Roadmaster and they recommend both the part # RM76511 and the part # RM76512. The # RM76512 is great because it can kill two circuits at a time. Since you have two circuits in the interior of your vehicle that need to be deactivated plus one under the hood I would recommend both products for you. I attached an install video that shows the # RM76511 installed in a similar Honda Fit as yours
