How AutoFUSE Works

Some towed cars require that you pull a specific ATC or ATO fuse to keep the battery from being drained during towing. This fuse must then be reinserted when you want to drive your car. The TowDaddy AutoFUSE eliminates this procedure by automatically bypassing the fuse when your towed car is hooked up to your RV.


The AutoFUSE control module plugs into your fuse box in place of your ATC or ATO fuse, and it uses the pulled fuse to maintain circuit protection when your vehicle is not being towed. However, when the car is being flat towed, the AutoFUSE bypasses the fuse so that the system acts as though the fuse has been pulled.


If you tow on a regular basis, the AutoFUSE will eliminate the need to open your hood, pull a fuse, and then remember where you put the fuse to reinsert it when you are finished towing. And if you're driving cross-country and must regularly disconnect your towed car to drive around town, the AutoFUSE will save you the hassle of reinserting the fuse every time.


Installing AutoFUSE

The AutoFUSE installs inside your vehicle's engine compartment. It taps into the trailer connector at the front of your vehicle that plugs into your RV, and it is powered by the RV's electrical system when the towed vehicle is connected to the RV.


Mount the control module inside the engine compartment, on or near the fuse box. Splice the ground and lead wires into the ground and running light wires on the towed car's trailer connector. The module even has an LED indicator light to let you know that it's receiving power.


Fuse

Next, pull the designated fuse and insert it into the fuse holder on the AutoFUSE. Then plug the AutoFUSE into the recently vacated fuse slot.


It's that simple. Now every time you hook up to your RV, turn your towed car's key to the "tow" position, and turn on your RV's tail lights, the AutoFUSE is triggered to bypass the fuse.

Review from a similar TowDaddy AutoFUSE in Tow Bar Wiring


This product was very easy to instal, worked on the first try which surprised me since nothing ever works the first time for me. It does what it said it would do kill the Ing power when the RV headlights are turned on and it is plugged into the RV. Only on thing it said that if it was working the light would be green but the light is red.... 78457


Comments

I have had this system for a year and have learned that this system works as it should if you follow the mfg. advice, keep you RV head lights on. On this last road trip I stopped for diesel and turned of my head light and did not turn them back on when I started back on the road. In about 2 hours I got the warning that the battery was low this notice came through my brake system. So now the lights go on and stay on for the day. Good system would recommend anytime.

  • Experiencing Battery Drain When Flat Towing 2013 Chevrolet Spark
  • Since the owner's manual isn't clear as to which fuse will disable the accessory relay in your 2013 Chevrolet Spark, I have a couple options for you.

If it is determined that you have to pull a fuse when flat towing, check out the included link to see if we have a fuse bypass system that would work for you.

  • Battery Disconnect Options for Flat Towed 2014 Chevrolet Spark
  • In your case the better option is the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect for Towed Vehicles # RM-766 since you do not have to pull fuses in your Spark. In that other case the TowDaddy # TD704 would be the better option. The Roadmaster ABD # RM-766 eliminates the hassle of pulling your battery cable. To deliver a trickle charge to the battery via the tail light wire (when the RV lights are on) you can use # RM-156-25.

  • How to Power Roadmaster RM-9400 Even Brake to Dinghy Tow 2015 Chevy Spark
  • Roadmaster recommends using a 12-volt outlet kit like # RM-9332 wired directly to the vehicle's battery. You can then use the 12-volt accessory circuit from the 7-way on the motorhome to provide a trickle charge to the dinghy's battery. According to Roadmaster and the owner's manual, there really is no need to disconnect the battery as long as you're getting a trickle charge from the motorhome's 7-way.
