Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76511

  • Roadmaster
  • Engine Compartment
  • Custom
  • Mini Fuse

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.


Features:

  • 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


Specs:

  • 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.


Installation

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.

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!

Absolutely no problems! A solid purchase that I would make again if needed.

I installed this in my Honda CRV. Unfortunately, this cuts off power to the Radio and the 12 volt outlets. I could not use it because of my Tow Vehicle Braking System needs 12v power to operate. I fixed the problem by installing charge lines on my RV and in my CRV.

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!

Product is great. Works well and was a fairly easy install.

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?

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.

What I needed to take care battery drain situation. After checking around, etrailer.com 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.


Comments
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.

Great solution when towing a GM vehicle behind motor home. Installation was relatively simple, hardest part was figuring where to put the rocker switch in the vehicle. Would be nice if the leads were about 10 inches longer.

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.


Comments
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.

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.

I had the BEST installation and service at Etrailer. This was made more evident when a friend got her new hitch from a DIFFERENT RV store. She Towed to the campground and did not fully know how to unhitch or hook up. Etrailer not only taught me all I needed to know about my hitch but took the time to have me learn first hand, with my own hands, how to hitch, unhitch and drive hitched. Etrailer had me drive with a technician and try different procedures behind the wheel — to learn the full do’s and don’ts. Thank you Etrailer.

The Roadmaster fuse bypass was great solution for my 2014 Honda CRV during tow mode. It was a very tight area to work during install and needed to be about 2-3" longer but it's sure easy to press that button for tow mode than trying to pull that hard to get to 15 amp fuse and then have to reinstall fuse each time you drive your tow car.

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.

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.

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!

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.

This fuse should not be too difficult to pull but if you wanted to use a fuse bypass it is # RM76511. There should not be a problem installing any tow package components under the vehicle. For any wiring you can zip tie it up to an existing wiring harness. Avoid areas that may pinch or burn the wiring.
