Expert Answers about Roadmaster

  • How To Connect 4-Way Flat Vehicle Connector To 7-Way on Trailer
  • To connect your vehicle that has a 4-Way flat connector to your trailer that has a 7-Way connector, you will need to install a 7-Way on the rear of your vehicle. If you just want or need the tail light functions to operate on your trailer you will just need Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole, part # 37185. If you need the complete 7-Way wiring to operate, you will need Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. The 4-Way on part # ETBC7 will plug into the 4-Way on your vehicle...

  • Recommendations for Flat Towing 2018 Ford F-150
  • As long as you have all the components needed for flat towing, and they are all properly rated for the 2018 Ford F-150, you will not have any issues pulling this vehicle behind your Tiffin RV. There is no need to go to a lighter vehicle if a Ford F-150 is what you truly are wanting. In order to flat tow any vehicle, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a supplemental braking system. If you do end up deciding on the 2018 Ford F-150, recommendations...

  • Recommended Parts Needed to Flat Tow a Jeep Wrangler JL or JL Unlimited
  • For your Jeep Wrangler JL, I recommend starting with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521450-5. This kit has removable arms to give you a very clean look when not flat towing your Jeep, and also gives you a clean connection to your tow bar when towing behind your motorhome. I recommend installing this base plate using Loctite threadlocker # LT37420 to keep your hardware from vibrating loose over time. For your tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding...

  • Comparing Blue Ox Patriot and Roadmaster Even Brake Towed Car Braking Systems
  • The main difference between the Blue Ox Patriot and the Roadmaster Even Brake systems is that the Roadmaster # RM-9400 uses compressed air to actuate the brakes in the towed vehicle, while the Blue Ox Patriot II uses an electrically-operated actuator to engage the brake pedal. As a result the Blue Ox system uses less power (since it does not incorporate an air compressor) and is a bit simpler to install. The Even Brake can only be used with vehicles that have power brakes.

  • RV on Ford E-450 Chassis is Hard to Steer and Sways
  • Just like a trailer, a vehicle being flat towed can pull around your RV, especially if the roads are uneven or wind joins in. There are several stabilizing products you could use to improve this issue and provide a better, safer tow. For a rear anti-sway bar you can use # RM-1139-147 which will provide an upgraded bar and bushings to improve stability at the back of the RV built on the Ford E-450 chassis. For the front the correct replacement anti-sway bar is # RM-1139-176. Also...

  • Does Steering have to be Locked out to Flat Tow a Vehicle Behind a Motor Home
  • You would not lock out the steering on the vehicle being flat towed. Doing so would cause the wheels to scrub (drag sideways) when turning. The steering needs to be unlocked and the wheels will turn accordingly and straightened back out when needed. It is sort of like pushing a shopping cart with caster wheels: if the cart is pushed to turn, the wheels will turn, and when pushed straight, the wheels will go back to being straight. I have included 2 helpful links on the right side of...

  • Recommended Flat Towing System For 2017 Chevy Spark With Manual Transmission
  • According to the 2017 Chevy Spark owners manual, only the manual transmission vehicles can be flat towed. Automatic transmission vehicles can only be transported with all four wheels off the ground on a trailer. If you have the manual transmission, then I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms # RM-523185-4 if you don't have active air shutters. This installation should use the Loctite Threadlocker # LT37420. For a tow bar that either stays with the vehicle...

  • To flat tow your 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk behind your motor home, you will need a base plate kit, tow bar, safety cables, a lighting solution and a supplemental braking system. Starting with the base plate kit, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-521446-5. I checked with Roadmaster and confirmed that these will fit your 2018 Cherokee Trailhawk. The EZ5 brackets are virtually invisible and easy to mount and remove. Then for a compatible tow bar, I recommend the Roadmaster...

  • Available Options for Rock Guards to Protect Towed Vehicle
  • There are other options for protecting your towed vehicle other than the Roadmaster Guardian you mentioned. The Roadmaster Tow Defender, part # RM-4700 stretches between the RV and the towed vehicle, deflecting rocks downward before they can damage your vehicle. The Tow defender attaches to the tow bar and the quick disconnects on the vehicle base plates. We also have the Rock Tamers Mud Flap system, part # ERT00108. These flaps install on the tow bar, and are adjustable.

  • How to Tow a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Behind a Motorhome
  • You can flat tow the 2019 Jeep Cherokee if it is a 4x4 model with 2-speed power transfer unit. Models with the 1-speed power transfer unit would have to be put on a trailer. None of the 2-wheel drive models can be flat towed but you can dolly tow front wheel drive models from the front. If you do have a model that can be flat towed and it is a Trailhawk or Overland edition you can use base plates # RM-521451-5. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Falcon All-Terrain # RM-522. This...

  • Needed Equipment to Flat Tow a 2001 PT Cruiser Behind Motor Home
  • In addition to the Roadmaster Tracker # RM-020 tow bar you referenced, you will need a base plate kit, safety cables, wiring and depending on the states you will be traveling in, a supplemental braking system. The Roadmaster # 278-1, which fits all PT Cruiser models, is the base plate kit you would need. The base plates use removable draw bars that makes the base plate kit practically invisible when they are removed. Quick disconnects like part # RM-201 will also be needed. The #...

  • Can a 2017 Chevy Colorado be Flat Towed?
  • Yes, you can flat tow your 2017 Chevy Colorado so long as it has a Four-Wheel Drive Low setting. There are a number of things you will need to flat tow, starting with base plates. If your Colorado does not have Adaptive Cruise Control, I recommend going with the Roadmaster EZ5 Base Plate Kit # RM-523182-5. If you do have Adaptive Cruise Control or your Colorado is a Z71 Trail Boss or ZR2 model you would need to go with the Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1721. For a tow bar, a great option...

If you have 3/4 inch thick D-rings you need the part # RM-035 as an adapter or if you have 1 inch thick D-rings you need part # RM-035-1. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle.

  • Will Hitch Extender # HE18 Allow Camper to be Towed with Tailgate Down
  • The Roadmaster High-Low Hitch Adapter, part # RM-048-2, is intended for leveling a tow-bar when flat towing a vehicle behind a motor home. It cannot be used to tow a camper. You might be able to use part # HE18, which is a hitch extender. This item adds 18 inches to the length of the receiver but also cuts in half its tongue weight capacity. You will need to make sure that the combined weight load of what you intend to place in your vehicle plus the weight of your towed camper does not...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 Behind a Motorhome
  • We do have base plates for your 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 but # RM-3180-2 will not fit. The comparable set that will fit your 1500 is # RM-3177-3. This set actually has removable arms so that when you take them out the base plates are essentially invisible. I have linked the installation instructions for you to view. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Blackhawk 2 # RM-422. This is an all-terrain tow bar which means you will not have to be lined up perfectly straight and level to hook...

  • Difference Between Roadmaster EZ4 and EZ5 Base Plate Kits for 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The main difference between the EZ4, part # RM-521450-4, and EZ5, part # RM-521450-5, base plate kits is how they connect to the tow bar. The EZ4 kit uses Roadmaster's Quick Disconnects that are included with a lot of their tow bars. The EZ5 kit doesn't use the Quick Disconnects but uses pins and clips and clips instead. The tow bar's crossbar is used with the Quick Disconnects of the EZ4 but with the EZ5 the lugs of the tow bar fit directly into the base plate brackets. Take a look...

  • Why Must the Negative Battery Cable Be Disconnected on a Jeep Wrangler to Flat Tow
  • Jeep recommends disconnecting the negative battery cable when flat towing to prevent the battery from draining. When you flat tow your Wrangler, the ignition must be left in the ACC position. This would leave certain electronic components on that could drain the battery. For your situation, I recommend installing the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect, # RM-766, on the positive battery cable so you don't lose your ground to the chassis. I know the owners manual says negative cable,...

  • What is the Average Vehicle Tow Dolly Width
  • Most modern tow dollies are either wide enough to handle most any late model vehicle that can be placed on a dolly or width adjustable to accommodate a variety of vehicle styles. The RoadMaster Tow Dolly with Electric Brakes, # RM-2000-1, is one of the latter. It adjusts from 93-1/2 inches to 101-1/2 inches. That is 7-3/4 feet to 8-1/2 feet. There are not too many vehicles that are wider than this and that can also be placed on a tow dolly.

  • How to Tow Kia Soul with Automatic Transmission

  • Improving Steering on a 2018 Jayco Redhawk Class C on a Ford E-450 Chassis
  • From my research your 2018 Jayco Redhawk 31XL is a Class C motorhome built on a Ford E-450 chassis with a V10 engine. To improve the steering on your Jayco you'll gain the most improvement from the rear Rear Anti-Sway Bar # RM-1139-147. That would be followed by the Front Anti-Sway # RM-1139-176 and then the Steering Stabilizer # RM-RBK24-RSSC.
