Take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. FuseMaster replaces 2 of your vehicle's ATC/ATO fuses and lets you prep for towing by simply flipping a switch. Integrated holders keep fuses secure and functional.


Features:

  • Bypasses towed car's ATC/ATO blade-style fuses so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing fuses every time you tow
    • Stores fuses so that you won't lose them
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuses from car's battery compartment and install FuseMaster in their place
    • Put fuses into FuseMaster fuse holders
    • 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
  • Application: ATC/ATO blade-style fuses rated at 20 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 battery compartment, which is located beneath the rear passenger's-side seat. 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 Fuse Bypass Switch for Towed Vehicles Installation - 2015 GMC Acadia

Today on our 2015 GMC Acadia we'll be taking a look at an installing the Fuse Master Fuse Bypass Switch for Towed Vehicles. This is going to be a 30 to 50 amp, FMX fuse, part number RM76513. You will also need another bypass to tow, which is part number RM76514. First thing we're going to have to do is open up the hood and locate the fuse box, which is going to be right here on the driver's side. Now, if you correspond with our owners manual and dingy towing instructions, it's going to tell you that you're going to have to remove the Bat 1, 50 amp fuse that's going to be located here underneath the hood. Now, we'll go ahead and remove the cover and shield up here so we can kind of tuck our ground and everything back underneath here if we can. Once you have all the push pin fasteners removed that go around the shield, you can pull it up and out of the way. This isn't necessary, but it does help out.

We'll remove the cover on top of the fuse box. Press in the sides here, and lift up. Located underneath the cover, you're going to locate Bat 1, or the 50 amp, which is going to be this guy right here. We're actually going to remove that and take out the 50 amp. Since the circuit never requires 50 amps, we're going to go ahead and bypass that with a 40 amp. Let's go ahead and start by removing that 50 amp fuse.

We removed the 50 and we'll be placing that 40 amp inside of our fuse bypass. First things first, we're going to notch out the edge of our box so we can get our wires through the side. We'll go ahead and use a razor blade to do so. We're just going to trim it down a little bit. Now, we'll go ahead and place in our ground.

We'll just use a self-tapping screw, and we'll go ahead and start that through. We're going to pull it back out. We'll take that ground, secure it with that screw. Being very careful with our razor blade, we're going to trim back the rubber here just so that it's able to come between those fuses and out the side. Just want to make sure that we don't cut anything, and we're going to trim it back so we can get rid of that wire loom and extra stuff holding it on here. We'll be able to work it around and into the box.

Now, we'll go ahead and connect our positive and negative wire to our fuse. Go ahead and connect that blue one first and then the red one into the other slot, blue towards the front. Once we've done so, we'll go ahead and work it out to the side, making sure that our wires are still connected. Go ahead and place our cover over the top of this, put it in drive mode. We'll place our cover over the top, bend our switch around, and place our fascia back over the top. Now, with that plastic fascia, we'll go ahead and push it down to where our switch comes up, just right next to it, place all of our fasteners back in and secure it down. With this one finished, we'll go ahead and start installing the second bypass. First thing we're going to do is locate the 2, 15 amp fuses, located in the battery compartment. Now, the battery compartment's going to be located behind the passenger seat on the floor. We're going to need to remove the carpet and the panel to gain access to them. Go ahead and flip the switch here to remove the carpet, slide it over to the side and out of the way. Locate the panel here for our battery, peel up on the plastic piece here to gain access, use a T20 Torch bit, remove the screw, pull the cover towards and underneath the passenger seat and up and out. You'll see those 2, 15 amp fuses located right here. Those are the 2 fuses that we're going to bypass. It's going to be the ECM fuse and the On Star fuse. This will make it to where we don't draw power from our vehicle while our vehicle's being towed. Now, we'll go ahead and pull out our fuses, place them into our fuse holder, place the cover over the top. Now, we'll go ahead and hook up the spade terminals to our fuse holders where we pulled out of inaudible 00:04:42. They're both going to be separated. We'll go ahead and plug it in. Once those are secure, we'll go ahead and hook up our other one. It doesn't matter which wire you hook into this side since they're both running positive and negative. We'll go ahead and hook up that. Now, we'll go ahead and test it out. All right, so we're off right now. We'll go ahead and turn it on. Bypass it, and it turns it off. This side, on, off. Right now we're bypassing the circuit and turning off our fuses. This side will remain constant all the time. Now, we'll go ahead and hook up all of our wire looms, place our covers over our fuses, and tuck it down here in the compartment, tucking all of our lines and wires back away. Now, all we have left to do is run our fuse bypass switch up to somewhere where it's going to be easily accessible. We're going to choose to put it right here in the back panel next to our 12 volt outlet. In order to do so, we'll take a trim panel removal tool, a screwdriver, our something with a nice, soft edge, and pry off the back piece. In order to do so, we'll go ahead and get behind it, and just pop it out. Be careful not to break the clips. Once you've gotten in there, you'll be able to pull down and pry it back. Now, let's say you have 2 clips on either side, that'll pop in, and the top slides up in here. Now that we have that exposed, you can see that we'll just have to go underneath the little bit of carpet to get our wiring harness back up and behind. Go ahead and slide this out of the way and you can disconnect it if you'd like if it makes it easier. To do so, we'll pull back on the clip, push in on the side, and pull out. That way, we can drill our hole in here as well. Go ahead and slide our wires back underneath the carpet and pull them through so that nothing's exposed. Now, we'll go ahead and take a 3/4 inch drill bit, auger bit, or hole saw, and put a hole in the back cover, like we said, next to the 12 volt outlet, that way we can put in our fuse bypass. We'll pre-drill our hole, and then we'll take our hole saw the rest of the way. Now, we can do this 2 ways. We can put it through one at a time, so we'll remove one of these, slide it through, hook it up, kind of deal, but we do know that both of our wires are going to go on just like so. If we pull it out, we have the red on this side and the black on that side, we'll just pull them straight back. You can do this the other way if you choose beforehand. We'll push it through. Then, we're going to hook everything back up the same way. Then, we'll push all of our wires on, make sure they're on that terminal, and spade terminals, nice and tight. Thread on the back, and then we're all set to set it back up in there. Hook back up your wires, press it all back up into place, and put that cover back over the top. We'll go ahead and check it. All right, so up is going to be tow mode and down's going to be drive mode. You can rotate it if you need to before you put it in there, and you can test this out. Now that we've distinguished which is which, we can go ahead and place on our stickers. It'll be drive mode, tow mode. Place our cover back over, set it down in place, place our torch bit screw back in place as well and then we'll put our carpet back. That will do it for our review and installation of the Road Master Fuse Master Fuse Bypass Switch, part number RM76513 and RM76514, on our 2015 GMC Acadia.

The item was correct and delivered promptly. My only complaint, not the fault of e-Trailer, is it was defective. A spade connector in one of the two fuse holders was out place in the socket. (Buried too deep on the molded rubber) Did not realize it until after it was installed and did not want to tear it out. Will replace fuse holder in lieu of the hassle of sending it back for a replacement. 220760

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

Review from a similar Roadmaster 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

Review from a similar Roadmaster FuseMaster in Tow Bar Wiring


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. 78665


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.

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 only thing that could make this product better and easier to install would be for it to include a fuse-style plug for the wiring into the fuse box.

The order was shipped immediately and I received it within just a few days. The video on the website was very very helpful. I was able to install everything myself in just a few minutes, except I couldn't get the wires to connect in the fuse holder. I had to take it to a mechanic, and he trimmed back the insulation so the ends were long enough to be able to slide into the fuse box. Also I had trouble reaching one of the fuse connections in the fuse box. This was no fault of the product. Just my 70 year old body would bend in the right places so I could reach it, and my 70 year old eyes had trouble seeing up close. I haven't towed the car yet, but apparently everything is working as it should. 521696

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. 490386

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. 481527

  • 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.

There is no reason why these cannot be used on your 2014 Chevy Traverse LTZ. For your base plates, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # 523175-4.

  • Everything Needed to Flat Tow A 2014 GMC Acadia Behind RV
  • I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2014 GMC Acadia. It states if the vehicle is either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, it can be flat towed with all 4 wheels on the ground. I just recommend verifying this information in your copy of the owner's manual, as it's possible that you have a slightly different model Acadia. The owner's manual will also detail the correct procedures and steps to take before heading out on your trip. In order to flat tow your 2014 GMC...

  • Does a Brake Buddy Supplemental Braking System Wire Directly to the Battery on a 2015 GMC Acadia
  • We don't carry the Brake Buddy products so I had to look up the instructions. They actually have 3 different models in their current line up. The Stealth unit does need to connect to the battery. The Vantage and the Classic plug into a 12 volt outlet (cigarette lighter). If your 12 volt power outlets are not active after using the fuse bypasses or pulling the fuses then you would want to install a 12 volt outlet kit # RM-9332. I have linked a video as an example of how it installs. The...

  • Trailer Hitch and Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Chevy Traverse
  • The EZ4 base plates, # 523175-4, and EZ5 base plates # RM-523175-5 will both work with the Falcon tow bar. Both of these base plate sets are only compatible with Roadmaster tow bars that fit into a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver and thus mount on the motor home. The Falcon tow bars do fit this description. In addition to the base plates and the tow bar you will also need safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow the vehicle. For safety cables you can use # RM-643....

  • Recommended Components Needed When Flat-Towing 2014 GMC Acadia Behind Motorhome
  • If you are flat-towing your 2014 GMC Acadia behind your 2015 Fleetwood there are 5 things you will need. You will need base plates for the Acadia, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring for the Acadia for lights, and most states now require a supplemental brake system. First I recommend the Roadmaster EZ Base Plate Kit, part # 523149-1. With the hidden brackets, these are virtually invisible when the drawbars are removed. The tow bar I recommend is the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Chevy Traverse Behind an RV Using a Sterling Tow Bar
  • For your 2013 Chevy Traverse and Sterling tow bar I recommend the EZ4 base plates # 523175-4. Base plates can be tricky to install so I have included a link to the instructions so you can see the steps ahead of time. In addition to the tow bar and the base plates you will also need safety cables (if the tow bar did not come with any) # RM-645-76, lighting, and supplemental braking. For lighting you can use a simple magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A but for a more permanent solution I recommend...

  • Recommended Wiring for Flat Towing a 2017 Buick Enclave
  • I looked at the online owner's manual for your 2017 Buick Enclave and found (on page 298) that there were 3 fuses that are recommended to be pulled for when you flat tow your vehicle. Because of this I recommend installing the Blue Ox # BX88274 and the Roadmaster # RM76514 to help make this process much easier. For the wiring kit to activate the lights on your Enclave I recommend the Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. Once this is installed you will only know it is there by the 6-Way...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Chevy Malibu Behind an RV
  • It sounds like you are talking about a regular trailer wiring harness used to power trailer lights if your 2014 Chevy Malibu was to tow a trailer. There aren't any tow bar wiring harnesses (to tow the vehicle behind an RV) that require a direct connection to the vehicle battery that I am aware of. The regular trailer wiring harnesses cannot be used as tow bar wiring harnesses. They do not allow power to flow through them backwards. The actual tow bar wiring harnesses available for your...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Buick Enclave Behind an RV
  • The first thing to do is check the capacity of the hitch on your Winnebago. The weight capacity of a Class III hitch varies. There should be a sticker on the hitch but if not the capacity is probably in the RV literature. Assuming that the RV and hitch are rated high enough you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to tow your 2013 Buick Enclave. Starting with the base plates # 523149-1 is an excellent choice. The arms can be removed when...
