Video Transcript for Blue Ox Coiled Electrical Cord Installation - 2021 Ford Ranger

Hey everybody, Ryan here at etrailer, today on our 2021 Ford ranger, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the blue ox seven to six coiled electrical cord. Before we take a closer look at our coiled cord I figured it'd be a good idea just to kind of refresh ourselves on what's actually going to be needed to flat tow our ranger down the road safely. So there's going to be a total of five main components needed to flat tow your ranger down the road safely. First, one's going to be the base plate and that's going to provide us the solid and reliable connection point. That way we can hook our tow bar up to it. Tow bar is going to be that second component, and this is going to be the physical link that connects the front of your ranger to the back of your motor home.

Third main component is going to be safety cables. And these are there in the event of an unlikely disconnect. These are going to keep your truck paired with your motor home. The fourth main component is going to be a tow bar wiring. And what this is going to do is transfer the lighting signals from the back of your coach to the back of your truck, keeping you safe and legal.

And the fifth main component is going to be a braking system. All right, and what this is going to do is apply the brakes in your ranger. Whenever you hit the brakes in your RV, helping bring you to a more predictable and complete stop. There's also going to be two more components that aren't absolutely necessary but I would highly recommend, one of them is going to be what's called a battery charge line kit. And what that's going to do is more or less trickle charge or maintain your Rangers battery whenever you're flat towing it behind the motor home.

Because generally speaking, a lot of the braking systems that are used are going to use your trucks battery power to operate. Problem is unless you stop every now and again and start it up, it's going to drain down the battery. So the charge line will resolve that. Another thing I would highly recommend is what's called a brake light relay. All right.

And what that's going to do is let all your signals function properly at the back of your ranger. And that's because without that the brake signal will override the turn signal. So let's say if you're at a stoplight or approaching a stoplight, you have your left turn signal on everything's working like it should. But after an allotted amount of time when you apply the brakes the brake light is going to overrule the turn signal. So your motor home will be flashing on the left side but the truck will just have brake lights. And that relay has got to solve that issue and let people know what your intentions are. So with all that said, let's go ahead, check our cord out. This is going to be a critical component, you know just as important as any other of those flat tow components that we mentioned. And in a situation you would use this. A lot of times, the wiring setups that come for your vehicle are only going to include everything you need on the vehicle. Some of them are not going to come with the coiled cable and that kind of defeats the purpose. You know, you need a way to transfer those lighting signals from your motor home to your ranger. And that's exactly what this is going to do. The current is going to flow through here, moved to our connector plug and send everything to the taillight. So a great way to get the job done. In another situation I can see this being used in is if maybe you already had one and it just got wore out, you know just quit working on ya or maybe got damaged. Something like that makes sense to replace everything when you can just replace this and kind of get the show on the road again. So a couple of solutions there for you I will say I'm actually pretty impressed with this one. This thing is super thick. It feels really good in your hands. You know, the coils come back pretty quickly and yeah so I feel like it, it should hold up, should hold up pretty good. Since it is coiled, you're going to want to use this with tow bars that do not have channels in them just like our tow bar here today, the tow bars that have the channels running through the sides I'm going to say you are going to want a straight cable. If that makes sense, that way you can run it through those channels and utilize them. But this is a perfect setup here. And the reason this is coiled is so it stays up nice and tight against, against everything else here away from the ground when we're going straight. But on the same note, whenever you make a wide turn or something like that you're going to need some extra length and that's exactly what's going to happen. You know, these can stretch out. Give you that extra length. When they're straightened back out, they're going to come back to how they originally we're and stay up off the ground and out of harm's way. So if you just take a look at the ends it's going to be a seven way round connector witch will go on to the back of your motor home super common type of connector. And the other side is going to have a six way round connector. And this is what's going to plug in to the front of your ranger. Again, this is a really common set up here and it'll work with a lot of different things. I do like how the ends are pretty much completely sealed everything's water tight. And so that should do a great job of keeping everything in good shape. You know, a lot of times the number one killer of these is corrosion and with everything being tight it's something you shouldn't really have to worry about. I do suggest. So just to be on the safe side from time to time on the parts here that are exposed or that could be exposed whenever you're not using it moisture and stuff like that can kind of just accumulate around it. So to be on the safe side. You can use some dielectric grease to put on those terminals every now and again, and that'll ensure that they stay more or less in great condition. It's also gonna come with the six way round connector plug. That's not going to have a bracket or anything with it, but generally speaking, you know a lot of times base plates will come with them. If not, you can always find a bracket here at etrailer but a lot of times too, these kits some of them don't actually come with this connector. So by picking up this setup, you know you're going to be covered with the connector and the coiled cord pretty straightforward. You know, it's a thick plastic housing. So, you know, shouldn't have to worry about really anything happening to it. It's going to have a spring loaded cap there that way when you're not using it we'll stay nice and tight. And when you are just going to be a catch that's located on the bottom of the cap. That way, when you plug this in it's going to kind of rest on the connector and prevent it from accidentally getting pulled out. So at the end of the day, you know a really nice coiled cable kit, everything stick well-built and should get the job done for you. Now, as far as the installation goes you are going to have to hook up your six way connector plug but it's really straightforward. And it shouldn't take you a whole lot of time. Speaking of which let's go ahead and do that together now to begin your installation we're going to be here at the front of our ranger and to get our plug hooked up you're going to need to have your wiring already routed here towards the front. And regardless on what kit you have, generally speaking it's going to be the same colors and everything else. But you're going to want to do is take the rubber boot and it comes with our plug slide that over the wiring just kind of push it out of the way for now. And then you're going to want to split the wires so carefully cut in between them. Then just pull them apart and your a few inches to kind of work with there. And then what I like to do just to have some fresh ends is this kind of cut maybe like quarter inch wiring off from there we're going to need to strip back each one of our wires about that length and give them a good twist. That way we have a nice connection. Once we put them in the back of the plug. So do that same thing for our three remaining wires. Now we can grab our connector plug and they're all going to be labeled, a little tricky to see that this is a good example here. It says GD. So it's going to be ground. So that's going to be our white wire. And what you want to do is back the set screws out enough to get the wire in, but not all the way out. If you pull them all the way out they're a little tricky to get started again with that said this one here is going to be labeled LT for left turn. So the yellow wire will go to it. This one here is going to be labeled RT for right turn. So the green wire will go to it. And then right here that one's going to be labeled TM for tail lights. The brown wire will go to it, but that said we can take the appropriate wires. So we'll start with ground, which is the white one gonna slide that in, take your Phillips head screwdriver and simply just tighten down that set screw. Make sure we get a good bite on it. I'm going to do the same thing for our corresponding wires here. So here's what the connector plug looks like. Once you have the wires hooked up, from there we can just take our rubber boot there, put that over and mount it up to our bracket. What I like to do is once we have our whole flat tow package installed as a whole and we know everything's working the way it should then I can come back here seal this up with some tape and dielectric grease. That way we don't have to worry about contaminants getting inside, but if there's an issue then you have to work around that. So that's why we learned to do it. I'm going to prop this up to our bracket. A bracket does not come included, a lot of times they'll come with your base plate which in our case, that sees situation. But if yours does not. You can always grab a variety of different brackets right here at etrailer to mount this up. And that'll finish up our look at and our installation of the blue ox seven to six coiled electrical cord on our 2021 Ford ranger..

Ordering was easy, shipping quick. Item appears to be better made than original due to the end connectors being sealed. Price was competitive.

I bought this over a year ago because my older one dragged on the pavement and almost became unusable. The new cable works/fits perfectly. I strap it to the tow bar now so it doesn’t drag. All is great one year later.


Comments
Still as good as new. I used it 2-3 times a year and it still performs just like it was new. A much better fit then my original cable.

Cord to the Motorhome, good tight fit. Read the female plug with an ohm meter to determined running lights etc... All's good except the plastic socket fasting to the base plate. Cracked the mounting ears.. I didn't think I "over torque".. I thought I fastened "snug tight". Regardless, off to the auto part store for another one. :(

Two words; Build Quality! After receiving my order yesterday afternoon I realize my why original Blue Ox electrical coil cable fell to pieces! Today I will do install and anticipate it to work but, have concerns about longevity. I have fifty years manufacturing (skill-trade) experience and it brakes my heart to pay hard earned money CHINA products!

Excellent product and great quality. I have used this electrical cord several times over the past year while towing my 2015 Jeep Wrangler behind my Forest River FR3 motorhome without any issues or problems. The cord connects and disconnects with ease and so far there are no issues with any part of the cord. I will definitely purchase the same electrical cord again in the future if I need another one.


Comments
After a full year of use the cord still performs as it did on day one. There have been no issues and the product still works perfectly. I would highly recommend the Blue Ox Coiled Electrical cord.

Heavy duty design works perfectly. You'll be happy you spent the little extra for higher quality connections and heavier cable. I use this with a Bue Ox LX tow bar and it maintains connection to my towed vehicle lights, flawlessly. I also use this to power my trickle charger on the towed vehicle.

Good umbilical cable to connect the coach to a towed car. The 7-blade connector is plastic but it appears to be durable. The 6-pin male connector (for the towed car/trailer end) that comes with the kit is also plastic. My cable will be out of the elements except when towing so hopefully it will last many years. As always, Etrailer was great - good customer service, quick ship and packed well.

Have not had any problems with this device , I done research prior to buying it .



- BX88206
by:

I purchased this as a direct replacement for a cable that came loose from my motorhome connector and the 7-pin connector and cable was destroyed. I like the coiled construction but it has too much tension in its construction that it causes constant pulling at both ends of the cable. If the coiled part coule be "relaxed" it would not put so much stress on the 7-pin and 6-pin connectors or their "keepers". I do have to applaud etrailer for their promt service/delivery and will come to them again.

Went well except for instructions installing baseplate for my 2017 Silverado. After grille removal was not close to the instructions. I [looked for installation videos for] 2018 model and instructions for grill and bumper removal was right. Nice project and saved a lot on install. etrailer is great at putting together the equipment you need. Love website to research products. Have not pulled truck any where yet. [(Covid)]

I am new to the world of towing a vehicle behind an RV and found a lot of articles/videos on the interweb, not having a clue what to expect except what I've read and watched on the web I reached out to etrailer.com and Courtney B answered all my questions, removed all my doubts of what i was doing and provided everything we needed in the timeframe we needed it at a reasonable price! I can't thank her or etrailer enough!!! I will buy here again and trust in they're how to videos without question. Thank you

by:

This wiring harness is solid and well made. I have been in aviation maintenance in the military for more than twenty years. Everything will need to be tweaked, aligned or replaced eventually. The plugs at both ends can be opened and repaired or checked. They are not sealed or molded like some. That makes sense. If you can check it and fix it yourself, that is time and money not wasted.

    We have the Roadmaster 7-way to 6-way coiled adapter part # RM-146-7 which has 14 gauge for the 12 volt power and ground circuits. The reason the Blue Ox has a ground wire with a heavier gauge is that if more than one circuit was active on the the heavier ground circuit would be beneficial as all of the circuits have to run back through the ground.

  • Why is Center Pin on 7-Way End of 7-Way to 6-Way Umbilical Missing
    It's not a defect. The center pin on the 7-way trailer connector is used for reverse lamps, which aren't needed when flat towing a vehicle. The pin in the 1:00 position on your tow vehicle 7-way is the pin that provides the constant 12-v supply which can be used to maintain but not charge the battery in your towed vehicle. The 12-v power should come out on the center pin of the 6-way connector on the other side. You can confirm this by turning on the ignition of the tow vehicle, and using...

    To keep a maintenance charge on the battery I recommend using a harness such as # BX88206 with the tow bar wiring you will be using so that you can run a wire from the connector at the front of the toad to its battery. There are a couple of ways to do this. First, you can tap into the running light circuit in the tow bar wiring but to provide power to the battery the RV running lights would have to be on all the time.

    We do offer a base plate kit that has been confirmed as a fit for your 2005 Honda Accord non hybrid. For that you would want the part # 1545-1.

  • Can Invisi-Brake and Brake Light Relay Be Powered from RV 12 Volt Circuit for 2017 Jeep Wrangler
    The power supply for the Invisi-Brake # RM-8700 has to come from the vehicle it is installed on because should the Jeep become separated from the RV it will still have power to apply the Jeep brakes. The brake light relay # RM-88400 is not as critical because should the Jeep become separated whether or not the brake lights override the turn signals is moot at that point. But it should still be connected to the Jeep battery. To provide a maintenance charge to the 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited...

  • InvisiBrake Activates with RV Exhaust Brake and Runs Down 2015 Jeep Wrangler Battery
    If the exhaust brake makes the brake lights/tow package trailer connector on the RV come on then it will trigger the InvisiBrake # RM-8700. There is a solution but there isn't an easy way to bypass the exhaust brake from setting off the InvisiBrake. What you can do is add a charge line from the RV to the battery on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. This will require a couple of additional parts. To keep a maintenance charge on the battery I recommend using a harness such as # BX88206 with...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon with Warn Elite Bumper
    For your 2013 Jeep Wrangler with a Warn Elite bumper the Roadmaster base plate kit part # 1439-1 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well. To use this with a Blue Ox tow bar # BX7380 you would want the adapter part # BX88185 that you also referenced. This would be a fantastic setup that I would highly recommend. The MX base plates are a bit easier to use than the EZ's so this would be a great route. For lighting you can use the bulb and socket kit, # RM-152, and not have to worry...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2005 Honda Civic

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2008 Ford Taurus
    I checked with Roadmaster and they do not recommend the use of a fuse bypass when flat towing your 2008 Ford Taurus.
