Video Transcript for Tow Ready Tow Bar Wiring - Bypasses Vehicle Wiring - 73864 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at some magnetic tow lights. Now, this light kit is going allow you to bypass your vehicle's wiring to provide temporary lights for your towed vehicle. This kit can also be used as trailer lights, so it's going to be ideal for RVs, cars, boats, tow trucks, trailers, and agricultural as well as industrial equipment. With this you're going to get two red lights that act as brake, tail and turn signal lights. The lens simply snap into place and then each light's going to contain one incandescent bulb. The bulbs are replaceable.

It uses bulb number 1157. Now these are going to feature a rugged durable construction. Each light has a magnetic base that lets you easily mount the lights at the rear or on top of the vehicle that's being towed. The base each one measures the same. It's going to have a diameter of about two and 3/4 of an inch. The unit's going to feature a four pole flat connector on the harness, that's designed to hook up to your RVs four way flat trailer connector or to the vehicle that's doing the towing.

It does come with a separate harness, that also has a four way flat that can be wired into the tow vehicle or RV, if no trailer connector is present. This harness is going to measure about three feet long and again it would simply wire into the towing vehicle. You're going to have your white wire, which is your ground. Brown wire, which is running lights. Yellow, which is left side stop and turn signal and green, which is right side stop and turn signal. When it comes to specifications and requirements, it meets SAE, CMVSS, FMVSS, and Department of Transportation standards.

The harness right here, this one's going to measure 20 feet long. The distance that you're going to have between the lights measures four feet, 10 inches. Again this harness right here, if needed, it's going to measure three feet long. We're going to take some measurements of each light. They're going to measure the same, so we'll just focus on one.

Then we'll actually hook this up to our power source, that way you can see what it looks like with power running to it. Now the overall height, that's going to be just over seven inches, about seven and 1/8 of an inch tall. Then the width of each one, that's going to be about four inches wide and then the overall depth is going to be that same measurement as the diameter of the base, which is about two and 3/4 of an inch. We're going to go ahead and hook it up to power. Again white wire's going to be your ground wire. Brown wire is for the running lights. Then yellow and green are going to be for driver and passenger side, stop and turn signal. Now I'll run through the functions with the overhead lights on and then I'll actually turn them off, so you can get a better look at it. This is going to be the running light function. If we apply the brakes, you can see how that signal output increases. Then we'll do stop and turn for that side there. We'll do it for the other side as well. Now we can do that with the lights turned off. Again you're going to see the running lights, brakes, turn signal, and the other turn signal. Really nice bright, consistent light output with this unit. That's going to do it for today's look at the magnetic tow lights.

Ask the Experts about this Tow Ready Tow Bar Wiring
Do you have a question about this Tow Bar Wiring?


  • Magnet Strength Of Tow Ready Tow Bar Wiring 18148 Lights
  • The Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights - 4-Way Flat Connectors # 73864 have a strong magnet. They don't have any weight rating or capacity rating. They have been tested at highway speeds with various weather conditions to stay firmly in place on your towed vehicle's exterior. You can remove them by hand and they take a little strength to remove, but you do have to be purposeful for them to come loose. I've attached an article on these style magnetic lights to assist.

  • Can Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights # 73864 be Mounted to Side of 2016 Jeep Wrangler
  • If you have a strong magnetic surface on the side of your 2016 Jeep Wrangler you could very well mount the Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights # 73864 there. The magnets are very strong for the lights, but we haven't tested them on the side of a vehicle so there isn't a way I can guarantee that it will hold well. You may want to check out the E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit # EZT20B instead which has tabs to keep them mounted at the rear door of your Wrangler. Since these do not require a magnetic...

  • Will the Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights Part # 73864 Scratch My Paint
  • There is a protective film on the bottom of the Tow Ready Magnetic Tow Lights part # 73864 that will help prevent the base from scratching your vehicle's painted surface. I have attached a photo for you as well that shows the protective film. Please make sure the surface that you attach the lights to is clean as this will also help to avoid scratches.

  • Parts Needed to Tow a 2013 Kia Optima on a Tow Dolly
  • I checked the online manual for your 2013 Kia Optima and didn't see anything about recreational dolly towing, only emergency dolly towing. While the manual didn't give any distance restrictions for dolly towing it is always best to confirm whether it is safe or not with a Kia dealer. If it is okay then you simply need a tow dolly and then some lights. Tow dollies tend to have lights on them but it helps to have some extra lights to make sure people around you can tell what you are doing. For...
