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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Towing Front Wheel Drive Vehicle Using Tow Dolly
  • As long as the vehicle you're towing has front wheel drive, the back wheels will simply freewheel. Towing a front wheel drive vehicle using a tow dolly would be perfectly acceptable. Be sure the front wheels are up on the dolly, don't tow the vehicle backwards.

  • Choosing Bike Rack to be Used While Towing a Camper
  • The Dual Hitch Receivers such as part # RM-077-2 cannot be used for towing a trailer. These receivers are meant for use with a towbar carrying a rolling load and an accessory such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. We offer a Curt Ball Mount with 2 inch Receiver, part # D210, which should work for your needs. This ball mount has a tongue weight capacity of 750 lbs, so the trailers tongue weight and the weight of the bike carrier plus the weight of the bikes cannot exceed that figure. Another...

  • 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,...

  • When Using a Tow Dolly, Should the Vehicle Being Towed Be In Park or Neutral?
  • When towing a Front Wheel Drive vehicle like your 2014 Toyota Corolla with a Tow Dolly like Roadmaster's Tow Dolly with Self-Steering Wheels and Electric Brakes, # RM-2000-1, you will tow with the vehicle in park. With your front wheel drive vehicle in park, turn off your ignition and remove the key. Turn your steering wheel so that it clicks into a locked position. If it will not lock, you will need a steering lock like # WICL303RED. To finish securing your vehicle, prior to attaching...

  • 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...

  • 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

This product is adjustable to fit many vehicles, and includes electric trailer brakes, radial tires, adjustable wheel nets, tail/brake lights and a 6-way round trailer connector.

  • What is the Difference Between Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar and Falcon 2 Tow Bar
  • The main advantage of the Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar, # RM-522, is that it will allow you to easily release the vehicle even if it is not level or at a difficult angle. In other words, you will not have to be perfectly straight and flat with this tow bar as it will not bind. The All Terrain version also features integrated cable channels to hold the cables up out of the way. The Falcon 2, # RM-520, has the potential to bind and you will want to be sure that you are as flat and straight...

  • Demco Excali-bar Compatibility With Roadmaster D-Ring Adapters RM-035
  • I reached out to my contact at Demco and he confirmed that the Demco Excali-bar will work with the Roadmaster # RM-035 Adapters for your Jeep. However, the Roadmaster D-ring Adapters are not confimed to fit a Rugged Ridge XHD bumper, so if that is the model you have there are not base plates confirmed to fit.

  • Which Models of a 2017 Ford Edge are Flat Towable
  • I did some research on the 2017 Ford Edges and it looks like as long as you have a V6 model it can be flat towed. That includes AWD and FWD models. The 4 cylinders are not flat-towable, yet the 6 cylinders are. For a base plate kit you then would want the part # RM-524454-4 which is a confirmed fit and would work well for a base plate kit. 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....

  • Is MOPAR Part # 68321424AB Required to Flat Tow a 2018 Jeep Cherokee
  • From our experience the part 68321424AB is required on a 2018 Jeep Cherokee. I recommend checking with a dealership for confirmation. Unfortunately, that part must be sourced at a dealership as well. We do however, have everything else you may need to flat tow the Jeep. The custom base plate kit you need is either part # RM-521447-5, if your Jeep is not a Trailhawk or part # RM-521446-5 if it is. These will connect directly to the Falcon 2 tow bar, part # RM-520.
