Expert Answers about Custer

  • Recommended 6 Inch Oval LED Backup Light For Brightness
  • We have 6-1/2 inch oval LED lights that are very bright, that are typically referred to as 6 inch lights in the trailer industry. I recommend the Optronics GloLight LED Backup Light for Truck or Trailer - Submersible - 22 Diodes, # BUL111CB, because it is a very bright replacement light that that meets the DOT compliant standards. They have a very clean look and are sonically sealed so they can handle all the weather thrown at them. They require a recessed mount # a70gb, and a 2-prong...

  • Flat Tow Lighting Recommendation that Uses LED Style Bulbs
  • The E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit # EZT20B that you referenced has lights that are incandescent the most similar setup we offer that has LEDs is a magnetic kit like the Magnetic LED Tow Light Kit # TLL21RK which installs instead with powerful magnets to a metal portion of your towed vehicle.

  • Magnetic Battery Powered Lights to Be Mounted on a Trailer
  • We do have some magnetic lights that operate on batteries. They're technically emergency lights but they have a constant shine setting. Of course they will not operate as brake or turn signals which I cannot recommend you tow your trailer without. A few examples: # HF18R-HD # HF18R-MB # HF18A-MB You might want to have your truck checked by a mechanic, if you haven't already. I know it will cost more money but if you're paying a shop to perform the repair it should solve the...

  • Necessary Equipment to Flat tow a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • If you plan on flat towing your 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited there are a number of parts that you will need. There is only one real plug and play option when it comes to wiring, which is Magnetic Towing Light Kit # # C-ATL20A. If your Jeep has a soft top and you cannot use magnetic lights, you could use the E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit # EZT20B. You are also going to need base plate kits, and I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 # RM-521448-4. For a tow bar, a great option would be the Roadmaster...

  • What Are Dingy Wiring Harness Options for 2004 Honda CRV Towed by Motor Home
  • By far the simplest and least-intrusive type of dinghy lighting is a magnetic kit. Magnetic light kits do not require you to drill, install bulbs, splice wires or in any other permanent way alter your towed vehicle. They are easy to install and remove. For example, Custer offers their Split Lens Magnetic Towing Tail Light Kit, part # SPL30B-6, which includes two split-lens lights with magnetic bases and a 30-foot cable with round 6-pin connector (please refer to the included photo). These...

  • Can a 2013 Honda Fit be Flat Towed Behind a Motorhome
  • I have a copy of the 2013 Honda Fit Owners Manual that I found online, and it states that both manual and automatic transmission equipped Fit models can indeed be towed behind a motorhome IF the specific procedures shown are followed. You can find this information by checking your manual. Be sure to read the instructions carefully and completely, as they're pretty specific and if they aren't followed to the letter, you can damage the drivetrain of your Fit. I looked through several online...

  • Flat-Towing Parts Needed for 2016 Honda Fit with Manual Transmission
  • We do offer base plates for the manual transmission 2016 Honda Fit such as Blue Ox # BX2261. In addition to base plates flat towing requires safety cables, a wiring or lighting kit, a tow bar and a supplementary braking system. Each of these components is reviewed in detail in the linked article. A popular tow bar compatible with those base plates is the Blue Ox Alpha # BX7365 that includes safety cables. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry...

  • Yes, the 4-way round to flat adapter part # ADP001 that you referenced will work with the RoadMaster 4-Wire Connector # RM-910030-1. It will plug right in and give you a 4-way flat to use.

  • Flat Tow Light Recommendation for a Jeep Wrangler
  • For a Jeep Wrangler like yours there really isn't a good place to attach magnetic tow lights like the part # C-ATL20A. The E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit # EZT20B would be a much better option since it doesn't require a metal surface to attach to. You could shut it in the rear door or even the rear glass hatch. Check out the install video I attached as well.

  • Will Custer Wireless LED Tow Light Still Work when Plugged in and Charging
  • I spoke with my contact at Custer about the Wireless LED Tow Light # LIW-LDTL. I learned that it can function while it is plugged in and charging at the same time. However, it charges via a 12 volt power outlet on a vehicle and since it is meant to be used on a vehicle that is being towed there are a couple of potential issues that could arise from this set up. First, the 12 volt outlets on a vehicle may not have power when the vehicle is turned off. And if the outlet does have power...

  • Does the Red Custer 4-LED # STRL4R Have More Than One Strobe Pattern?
  • The Custer 4-LED Strobe Light or Running Light - 3-Wire Pigtail - Red # STRL4R has the ability to be used as a running light or a strobe. It does not have a controller to change strobe patterns, so the integrated strobe pattern is what you see in the video and does not change. If you want to utilize a strobe controller, you can connect it to the black wire to give you whatever pattern you desire, but the red wire has only the one strobe pattern. You can use the Custer Multi-Function...

  • Availability of Wireless LED Tow Light that Uses a Rechargeable Battery
  • The exact thing that you just described is the Custer Wireless LED Tow Light # LIW-LDTL. It uses magnets to install on the towed vehicle and has a rechargeable battery so you to not have to purchase AA or AAA batteries to power it. For the light functions to work you will simply need to plug in the wireless transmitter to the 7-Way on the back or your RV or tow vehicle and then flip the switch to the "on" position on the light bar. Since this is made to be installed on the top of a...

  • Can The Custer Lite-It Smart Rider Wireless LED Tow Light Be Plugged Into 12V Power While Towing?
  • On the Custer Lite-It SMART Rider Wireless LED Tow Light - Magnetic - 7-Way Blade Connector # LIWSR1-7B, the 12V charger can be connected while towing without issue. My contact at Custer recommends not leaving it connected after towing as it can continue to pull power and will eventually cause that battery to fail from overcharging it. For typical towing, you won't have it plugged in too long so that shouldn't be an issue as long as it is unplugged when you are done for the day.

  • Does Battery Need To Be Disconnected When Flat Towing A 2011 Ford Fiesta Automatic
  • It is recommended to disconnect the battery on your 2011 Ford Fiesta automatic when it is being flat towed. Your vehicle has a feature that will not allow the battery to be discharged while it is being towed, so you should not have to go through the whole procedure you mentioned to reset the vehicles presets. 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...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda Fit Sport Automatic Behind a Motor Home
  • The best place to check to see if a vehicle can be flat towed behind a motor home is the owners manual. I found one online for the 2013 Fit from Honda and it states that you can tow the vehicle behind a motor home. There are special instructions for the automatic transmission you will want to look at so be sure to check your owners manual. You will need 5 items to flat tow your fit. First you will need base plates, # BX2253. These provide a safe mounting location for a tow bar. For a...

  • Flat Towing 2015 Honda Fit EX-L Automatic Behind a Class A Motor Home
  • When it comes to deciding if any given vehicle can safely be flat towed with all wheels down that determination goes to the vehicle's manufacturer. I reviewed the online version of the owner's manual for the 2015 Honda Fit EX-L and in the section titled Emergency Towing there is a statement on page 428 that says "...towing behind a motorhome or other motor vehicle can damage the transmission." No mention is made if this refers to all versions or only to versions with the automatic transmission....

  • Can 2014 Kia Soul with a Manual Transmission Be Flat Towed
  • I did some checking and your 2014 Kia Soul with a manual transmission can be flat towed. Your Roadmaster tow bar can be used but you will need a new base plate kit as they are all custom fit for specific vehicles. For a base plate kit you'd need the # RM-522114-4. Aside from that most of the flat towing components from your old vehicle can swap to the Soul but it really depends on what you have. If it's a universal lighting system like the part # EZT20B that you referenced that will easily...

  • Will Custer LED Strobe Driver STR-QRLY Work with Load Resistors
  • Interesting question! My tech contact at Custer said their LED Strobe Driver # STR-QRLY should work just fine wired in upstream of the existing load resistors like # P230004A-2. So the wiring sequence would be strobe-resistor-LED.

  • What Parts Needed for Flat Towing a 2005 Saturn Ion
  • The Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520, and Roadmaster MX Base Plate kit, part # 3136-3 will work just fine with your 2005 Saturn Ion. If you will be towing your Saturn behind an RV or Motorhome, you may not need to have a brake system for the Ion. The Ion is small enough and light enough that an RV or Motorhome has sufficient stopping power for itself and the Ion, however, brakes are a good idea and are required by some state law and by some RV Manufacturer warranties. I will link...

  • Parts Needed to Replace All Wiring a Single Axle Cargo Trailer
  • To completely rewire your cargo trailer, I would recommend picking up a trailer light kit like the Standard Light Kit, # TL5RK, or # TLL9RK for LED lights. These kits include all necessary wiring and hardware needed to install the lights on your trailer. The LED light kit does not include clearance lights. To add clearance lights, I would recommend using # MCL31AB. The best option would be the LED lights because they only use a fraction of the power that the incandescent lights use....

  • Custom Flat Towing Wiring Harness for a 2007 Jeep Liberty
  • Yes, there is a custom flat towing wiring harness available for your 2007 Jeep Liberty. It is # HM56203. If you are also using a supplemental braking system when flat towing the Jeep, which is required in most states, you will also need to use a brake light relay, # RM-88400. The Even Brake system, # RM-9400, includes the relay. I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2011 GMC Terrain FWD Behind A Motor Home
  • The 2011 GMC Terrain FWD can be flat towed behind your motorhome if you have the six speed automatic transmission. Also, you are correct, the Discrete Logic Ignition Switch fuse (fuse #32) needs to be removed from the instrument panel fuse box. The instrument panel fuse box is located on the passenger side of the center console, behind a cover. That fuse needs to be removed to keep the battery from being drained when towing. With that done you should be able to flat tow your Terrain with...

  • Recommended Back Up Alarm For A 2014 Chrysler Town and Country
  • For your 2014 Chrysler Town And Country, I recommend either the Surface Mount Back-up Alarm - 97 DB # BK97DB you referenced or the Light-Duty to Medium-Duty Back-Up Alarm with Wire Leads - 12-24 Volts - Less than 0.3 Amp - 97 dB # PK41820. For either alarm, you can use the Pollak Light-Duty Toggle Switch - On-Off - 12 Volt - 10 Amp - 6" Wire Leads # PK34513 and just splice the hot side of the switch into the reverse light wire and then run the cold side to the alarm. You can use the...

  • Recommended Flat Tow Wiring For 2015 Ford F-150 Crew Cab
  • There is not a plug and play option with quick connects for your 2015 Ford F-150. The only kit available for your truck that won't require splicing is the Custer E-Z Mount Tow Light Kit, 20 ft. Long Cord # EZT20B with the external lights. If you want to use your factory tail lights, I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This kit will use the diodes to protect your factory system while hardwiring your truck to make an easy connection for towing...

  • Replacement Lenses for Haul Master Trailer Lighting Kit
  • The trailer lighting kit you referenced includes both red and amber lenses. The larger red lenses measure 4-1/2- x 4-1/2-inches according to my research. Since I do not know which lenses you need, red or amber, I have linked you to our main page for trailer light replacement lenses. You can search by lens shape and color, and even by brand if you can find a manufacturer name on your original parts. If you wish to advise the details about the lens you need - shape, color, dimensions...

  • Needed Items for Flat Towing 2012 Honda Fit
  • For starters, you will need a tow bar and base plates. The tow bar mounts into the receiver on your Winnebago, and would use the base plates that permanently attach to the Honda Fit as an attachment point. I would recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part # RM-520. The Falcon 2 is our best seller, and is easy to operate. The vehicle-specific base plate kit is part # 521190-1. I will link you to our video showing this kit being installed on a 2010 Honda Fit. Next, you will need...

  • Recommendation For Wiring Kit When Flat Towing a 2003 Honda Element
  • For a light wiring kit when flat towing your 2003 Honda Element, I would recommend two different choices. If you do not plan on towing the vehicle often, you can use a light kit like the Magnetic Towing Light Kit, part # C-ATL20A. If you do plan on towing it often, I recommend installing diodes using Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, part # RM-154. With this diode kit the vehicle brake lights will function as both brake and turn lights. It will also have the diodes that prevent...

  • Can Kia Soul with Manual Transmission be Flat Towed
  • Some model years of the Kia Soul with manual transmission can be safely flat towed with 4 wheels down, but you will want to check your owner's manual to confirm that your particular model year is capable of being flat towed. This should appear in your manual under the heading "recreational towing". This section of your manual will tell you if there are any required preparation steps to ready your Soul for flat towing. Safe and legal flat towing requires a number of components: tow bar,...
