Tow Ready Wiring - 118158

  • Trailer Connectors
  • Converters
  • 2-to-3 Converter
  • Tow Ready

Used when a motorhome with a 2-wire system is towing another vehicle with a 3-wire system, by way of a tow bar.


Features:

  • Used when a motorhome is towing another vehicle by way of a tow bar
    • If the towing vehicle has a 2-wire system and the vehicle being towed is on a 3-wire system (the vehicle has amber turn signals, separate from the brake signals), the vehicle to vehicle tail light converter will need to be used
  • This item cannot be installed backwards (the input going to the output side) to convert a tow vehicle down
  • Will not work with vehicles that have LED tail lights
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Note: You will need to install a tail light isolating diode system (38955) and 2 additional diodes (RM-792) with this tail light converter to prevent electrical feedback when flat towing a vehicle. Vehicles with separate turn signals and brake lights will need a total of 6 diodes.

This product was used to separate the brake light signal from the turn light signal on a Ford F-350 cab/chassis with a flatbed to facilitate using amber turn signals without them illuminating when the brakes are applied (truck only, no trailer). So far they are "functioning as designed" and I'm very happy with the product. 572713

I use Optronics oval LED lighting exclusively and I don't think this was made to work with them because of the rapid response of the LEDs. I use this so that on a 4 wire system I can have turn signals on the side of the trailer. When you first hit the brakes, there is a fast blip of light from the side marker/turn signals. With an incandescent bulb it would be too fast to light the bulb. This is something I can live with. I think this works great with no problems so far. 524581

I purchased this tail light converter over a year ago. This eliminated the problem of electrically connecting a European trailer to my U.S. spec Dodge Dakota truck. It was easy to install and works perfectly. I also appreciate etrailer waiting a year before asking me to review this product as most on line vendors ask for a review before the item is received. 315088

This converter worked great for what I intended it for. I was wanting to add a third brake light to back of my fifth wheel trailer. I purchased STL179RB Glolight Thinline LED also. I tried to wire this direct. It won't work, it flashes when you turn the turn signal on. A friend of mine recommended this after doing a search on the etrailer website. Etrailer support recommendation was installing two lights. Duh! that's why I wanted a third brake light, I already have two lights that function as stop/tail/turn. The installation in these pictures is not complete. I was trying to avoid drilling holes in the back of my trailer, I still may have to. I am going to enclose the wires going up the trailer to the light in some white wire loom. The light at present is secured with only white RTV, not sure that will hold. I'm still trying to avoid drilling new holes, may have to though. I hooked up all the wires on the input side, white to ground, green to right stop/turn, yellow to left stop/turn. I hooked only the red wire to red wire of the light on the output side. I hooked the ground (white wire) of light to input side of converter. Yes, it works and no it does not blink when either blinker is turned on. The additional two wires on the output side of converter are not being used nor is the additional wire of the light. Sorry for the long review, don't usually write reviews at all. Anyway, if this will help even one person it will be worth it. 428692

I like having my trailer lights showing my trun direction and then also show that I have applied the brakes. This units splits the signal and works great. Real easy to wire in. You will probably need to only run one wire to add the brake light function. 344326

I used this to change the wiring and harness on a European trailer to work with my standard US 4-pin trailer outlet. Pretty simple and straight forward with the diagrams and write-ups that I found on this site. 489560


Comments

The parts are still on my European trailer and working well! The trailer is a German brand and started its life there in Germany being pulled by my American-spec Jeep Wrangler. The trailer’s wiring and the Jeep’s connections needed to be massaged in order to work. The parts I ordered from etrailer and the writeups for the project on your site made it all possible. Now the trailer is titled and registered in Virginia and enjoying its life on this side of the Pacific!

I was looking for a way to add a third tail light to a vintage trailer and this proved to be just the ticket. Easy to install and worked great right out of the box. Plenty of communications from etrailer staff along the way. Just wish they would provide tracking info so you could plan for expected receipt date. 97067

This is a very useful device for those of us who flat tow auxiliary vehicles, such as a tracker behind a motorhome or whatever. Also it is easy to install. Keith 406122

Unfortunately this did not work for my purpose, not that the product was at fault. I was trying to retain the amber turn signals on my vehicle when flat towing but what I found is the Motorhome already has a taillight converter in the system because it too has amber turn signals. the two converters did not get along. I had to remove it and rewire to combined signal and brake lights 583040

First off the customer service at etrailer is by far the best that I have dealt with. If I had a question, they sent me an email response very quickly. Secondly, the shipping is extremely fast. I placed the order and it came to an APO AE address (military stationed in Germany) via USPS Priority Mail and it arrived in like 5-7 days, I was shocked when it arrived, because I was expecting at least another 3 or 4 days. So, as far as the product. Works great and was just what was needed. Project was to make an adapter that I could plug into my 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee U.S. spec and use a German trailer. My friend did all of the wiring and made the adapter, so I do not take any credit for any of it. Just sharing this, to those trying to figure out if it can be done. Moving on, the adapter is a 7 pin/blade normal American plug that goes into the back of the JGC and the other end of the adapter is the 13 pin German (European) socket. We tried it without this product and all worked except when you hit the brakes the brake lights were faded and the blinker lights were lit up as if they were the brake lights. So, had to get this product and separate the brake/blinker light on the American side and have separate brake and turn wires on the German side. Put this product between the two in the middle of the adapter, wired it up and all works great! I used 2 zip ties around the product and a bunch of electrical tape to hold it to the adapter, at least to give it a better look. Now I only have to plug in the adapter whenever I use a German trailer and all works correct. When done towing, remove the adapter and everything is back to the American system. Did not have to cut/splice or do anything to the wires on the JGC or the trailer, all was done at the adapter. Thanks again to etrailer for providing awesome customer support and shipping!

I gave up trying to find a wire to tap for a third brake light on a 2013 GMC Sierra, so I ordered a 2 to 3 wire adapter ( #118158) as recommended by you expert Michael H. He stated that only one of the inputs was needed, but both Left and Right turn were required to make mine work at all. That aside, the product was received quickly and installation was simple using the enclosed diagrams. I have never seen anything mentioned anywhere about waterproofing undervehicle connections. I do and they last for years. 108554

I mounted a juction box on the front of the trailer and connected my 4-wire trailer connection to it. From this box I ran a ground wire to all lights and to the convertor input, the green right turn/stop to the convertor input, the yellow left turn/stop to the convertor input, the brown to my tail lights, license plate light, marker lights and clearance lights. I ran the 3 wires from the convertor output to another juction box. I connected the green right turn to the right amber light, the yellow left turn to the left amber light, the red brake to the red right and left brake light and the third brake light. No diodes needed. I'm using your Bargman LED Double tail light Red and Amber and Bargman wraparound clearance/side marker red on rear amber on front. You people at etrailer are "THE BEST". I believe you are the only outfit that knows your products and can tell us how to install them! 12888

Interested in adding a third light up higher on your trailer for additional visibility? This product will separate the turn signal and brake signal on a four pin connector so you can add a running and brake light up higher to be visible. Simulates the third light that most cars and trucks have these days in the center of the back window. Positive for the semi-trucks visibility. You do not really think they can see the normal trailer lights 12" off the ground when following close behind or coming over a hill do you? Included a picture with just the running lights illuminated. Thank you etrailer for having the right products in stock! Most other dealers did not know what I was talking about and one even told me it was against the law. Called state highway patrol and they encouraged the additional third light! I also added the higher side running lights when semi's are merging behind you at night. 563855

I tried wiring this to a current model F-150 to attempt to separate the brake signal out at the rear from the indicators. It didn't do as it was supposed to in this situation. most likely due to the sensitive circuits in this vehicle as it would send faults up on the dash display. but also didn't seem to operate correctly either. Also made a heck of a noise when mounted in the cabin so i would suggest mounting it externally. I assume it will be suitable in older vehicles. 607880

Jameson’s answer was right on and 118158 works great to isolate the brake light from the right and left directional wires in a 7 wire plug from tow vehicle. Would be a 5 star except the 118158 I ordered from etrailer never came. After a month and despite having great conversations with George, Nikki and Dean, ordered another from manufacturer and got it in 4 days. 518069

So far this product works as described but it may take a little bit to get it to work correctly. The biggest problem I had was mixing incandescent and LED lights by mistake. This will only work with LED light. Hopes are high that it will be a high quality product that lasts a long time. By the way the tech support guy that helped me out was great! 406664

Fast shipping Product worked exactly as advertised. This is the module used when you put a topper on your truck and need to wire in the third brake light on the topper. Anything else and your third brake light will flash with the turn signal. This also makes the third brake light on the topper work with your hazard warning flashers. 396457

This product works very well. I am using it on a snowmobile trailer. I enclosed it in a small watertight receptacle box and mounted it underneath the trailer. I did this because it was easier to mount the box and to protect the unit from salt. The unit comes with sticky back tape however, with salt and debris I felt it better to put the unit in a receptacle box. I cannot comment on the durability because I just installed it, but it is really working well and is exactly what I wanted for the "third" brake light... another etrailer addition to my trailer. 339846

  • To flat tow your 2013 Ford F-150 Supercrew you will need a tow bar, base plate kit, safety cable set, tow bar wiring, a supplemental braking system, and most likely a high-low adapter. The Tow Bar that I recommend using is the Blue Ox Avail # BX7420 which is rated for 10,000 lbs and comes with safety cables. Since it uses telescoping arms it is much easier to hook up to your base plates over some other models. I prefer the Blue Ox Base Plate kits that allow you to remove the arms...

Since your trailer has a combined wiring system the the converter will separate it so the third brake light will only come on when braking. I also recommend to use diodes to prevent feedback with Roadmaster Single Park Light Diode part # RM-690....

  • Recommendation For Flat Towing 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4 Behind Motorhome
  • I reviewed the 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe owner's manual and it can be flat towed. To flat tow your Tahoe, you will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring, a braking system, and maybe a high-low hitch adapter. For your 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4, I recommend the Roadmaster MX Base Plate Kit, Item # 3154-3, because it is designed for your vehicle. It is built with heavy-duty applications in mind. The front arms are easily removable when not in use. The Roadmaster Nighthawk...

  • Is Wiring Converter Needed for Flat Towing 2015 Mini Cooper
  • That's a good question but a wiring converter is not needed to install the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 on your 2015 Mini Cooper. Since it has separate lighting and your motorhome has combined lighting you can add Tail Light Converter # 118158 if you want to retain your Mini's separate turn and brake signals but it isn't a requirement. In regards to the airline you will run the vacuum line of the SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System...

  • Recommendation For Flat Towing 2008 Saturn VUE
  • The items needed to tow your 2008 Saturn VUE will include base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring, a braking system, and maybe a high-low hitch adapter.

It also has twistlock brackets that are virtually invisible and can be removed. The Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain tow bar, Item # RM-522, is a great choice that fits the Roadmaster XL Base Plate.

  • Ways to Convert Trailer to LED Type Lighting
  • You can convert your RV to separate turn signals and/or LED operation in a couple of ways, depending on how much wiring modification you care to do. Any of your existing lights can be converted to LED operation by swapping out the incandescent bulbs for LED-type replacement elements. We have LED equivalents that are drop-in replacements for many popular standard bulbs. All appear on the linked page and can be selected by bulb number, such as the popular 194 type bulb # A194B that can...

  • Isolating Turn Signal and Running Light for Small LED Side Marker and Signal
  • The Vehicle to Vehicle Tail Light Converter # 118158 is not compatible with LED lights. Instead use # C56196 to separate the stop light from the turn signal for LED applications. The running/clearance light will bypass this converter. To get the turn and clearance light for the side of your trailer, the smallest LED is the Uni-Lite LED Clearance and Side Marker Light w Grommet - Submersible - 2 Diodes - Amber Lens # MCL11AKB. I've linked an article to lighting info and regulations...

  • Curb weight is what your 2017 GMC Acadia Limited weighs without people or baggage in it while the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is the max amount of weight that your Acadia can handle (which includes the curb weight). Since the Roadmaster Falcon 2 # RM-520 is rated for 6,000 lbs you have 1,344 lbs that you can put inside your Acadia before you have maxed out the tow bar.
