Video Transcript for Blue Ox Tow Bar Wiring BX8861 Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing part number BX8861. This is the Blue Ox 4-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way Round Plugs. This is going to allow you to quickly and easily connect your towed vehicle to your RV using the durable insulated electrical cable. The 4-wire extension cord can be used for multiple towing applications. It's going to be ideal for running power from your RV to your towed vehicle. It's also going to include two 4-way round sockets that mount to the RV and one mounts to the towed vehicle for quick, easy hook up. All you have to do is connect your wires to the back of the socket and mount one of this to your RV and the other one to your towed vehicle.

The mount holes on this unit are going to be separated by 1 7/8, 7 inch, center around center, and they're going to measure a 1/4 inch by 3 16/17 inch. It's going to feature a spring-loaded lid. That way it's going to remain closed, we're not connected. That's designed to help keep out dirt and moisture and protect your connection points. It's also going to feature a finger grip at the bottom of the lid to easily open up the lid. The coil cable can expand to 7 feet, yet still contracts to prevent dragging and tangling, also making it really easy for a nice convenient storage. It's going to feature silicon and cased wire connections that are going to prevent corrosion.

This unit is going to be constructed at 16-gauge wire, and then the ground wire is going to be 12-gauge. Here on the connectors, they got easy to grip, or easy grip finger tabs as well, that way you can disconnect them really easily from the socket connector. That's going to do it for our review of part number BX8861. This is the Blue Ox 4-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord. .

Quickly and easily connect your towed vehicle to your RV with this durable, insulated electrical cable. Includes 4-way, round RV and vehicle plugs.

We originally bought this product over two years ago from etrailer and we were happy with its performance. We did some annual maintenance on the tow bar so we decided to buy a new coil. We bought the second coil via [online retailer] (same manufacturer) and within a few days of using it we noticed it did not perform the same as our original purchase. We sent it back and reordered it from etrailer and we are again very happy with it.




by:

Not what i thought. Ends on the blue ox are a lot smaller than the ones on my truck and rv. So they will not fit without changing both plug ends on the truck and rv. That is what i was trying to avoid. Sorry I will have to return.




by:

Great product works great just what I needed for my toad




by:

I put this base plate on with the assistance of my wife very easy to install. Do recommend the video to install




by:

This is a great kit to add rear lights to a Ford Focus because you have to remove the negative battery cable for towing. There is more then enough wire to complete the job of wiring the lights from the rear of the car to the front for a permanent installation.




by:

Replacement electrical cord to replace our existing wiring between car and motorhome that has seen all kinds of extreme weather during the last 10+ years. The outer jacket started to crack, but still works. Makes connection to our Brake Master towing system quick and easy.

  • What is the Coiled and Straightened Length of the Blue Ox Coiled Electrical Cord # BX8861
    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Blue Ox 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way, Round Plugs, # BX8861, to take some measurements for you. When coiled up, from end to end it measures about 38 inches long. When stretched out to the maximum it measures 176 inches. However, ideally you would keep the cable only stretched to around 7 feet to avoid the harness coming unplug or damaged. The harness will coil back up after being stretched.

  • How Does the Wiring Attach to the Plugs in the Blue Ox 4-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord and Round Plugs
    You are correct that the Blue Ox 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way, Round Plugs # BX8861 will use screw terminals to attach your wiring. I went out to that warehouse and took a picture of the connectors so you could see the attachment points.

  • Tow Bar Wiring Recommendation for a 2004 Volkswagen New Beetle
    I have exactly what you need. What you are describing is referred to as tow bar wiring. I did some checking and it looks like Blue Ox has confirmed the Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit # BX8869 as a compatible wiring system for your 2004 VW New Beetle. To complete the wiring and allow you to connect to your tow vehicle you would also want the # BX8861. I attached a couple FAQs to the right with more info on tow bar wiring.

  • Will Blue Ox Bulb and Socket Kit Fit a 2010 Mazda5 to Tow on a Tow Dolly Behind a Motor Home
    The Blue Ox bulb and socket kit, # BX8869, will fit your 2010 Mazda5. To add a 4-way round harness you will need # BX8861. You will want to check the owners manual on the motor home to make sure you can use both connectors at the same time. Too many lights could create too much draw on the system.

  • Will the Blue Ox Bulb and Socket Lighting Kit Work for Flat Towing a 2005 Chevy Colorado
    Yes, the Blue Ox Bulb and Socket Tail Light Wiring Kit, # BX8869, is confirmed to fit in the taillight housing on your 2005 Chevrolet Colorado. Along with the bulb and socket kit you will need an electrical cord and connectors to go from the towed vehicle to the motorhome. Blue Ox recommends the 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way connectors, # BX8861 if your motorhome needs a 4-Way round connector, and the 6-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord with 6-Way round connectors, # BX8862 if your...

  • Can Blue Ox 4-Wire Electrical Cord Plug be Grounded to Frame
    Yes, you're on the money; if you are not using the plug of the Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56009 you can ground the plug of the Blue Ox 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way, Round Plugs # BX8861 and be fine. I have added links to video reviews for you as well.

  • Tow Bar Wiring Solution for Tow Vehicle with 4-Way Flat Connector at Rear of it
    So what you could do is use the coiled tow bar wiring kit from Blue Ox part # BX8861 at the rear of the fifth wheel that has a 4-way flat connector as this comes with a 4-way round connector that can replace it as well as another one for the front of your tow vehicle and coiled wiring to connect across the tow bar. Then for an easier to install invisible supplemental braking system the Demco SBS DUO part # SM99251 would work great. I don't know the year of your Chevy Spark for determining...

  • Wiring Kit for Flat Towing to Allow for Quick Connection of Toad and RV
    If your towed vehicle has a 4-pole connector for its wheels-down lighting kit you can install a socket to avoid having the wire hanging down when you're not towing it. Blue Ox kit # BX8861 includes two 4-pole round sockets (one for the car and one for the RV) as well as a coiled 4-pole cord. What you can do is cut off the 4-pole connector on the car wiring and connect it to one of the sockets that will mount on the car bumper cover. The other socket will install on the RV and splice into...

  • Is it Safe to Use Tail Light Isolation Diodes on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler TJ for Flat Towing
    Yes, it is safe to use diodes on your Jeep Wrangler. Diode Kits, like the Hopkins Tail Light Isolating Diode System, item # 38955, are designed to stop any power feed back onto the vehicles electrical system. If it concerns you, and drilling a hole in the tail light housing is not an issue, you can definitely use a bulb kit on your TJ. Blue Ox recommends the Blue Ox Tail Light Wiring Kit, item # BX8869, along with the Blue Ox 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord and plugs, item # BX8861. I...

  • Blue Ox Tow Bar Base Plates and Wiring for 2011 Honda Element
    If your Element is not an SC model, you would use the BX2232 base plate kit. Neither Blue Ox nor Roadmaster offer a base plate kit for the 2011 Honda Element SC. The Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7380 would be a great choice for you. The Alpha includes safety cables, is self aligning and will easily fold up against the rear of the motor home when not in use. To wire your vehicle so its tail lights work in tandem with the RV, you would need a Coiled Electrical Cord and Plugs, part # BX8861 and...

  • Towing a 2007 Toyota Solara with a Chevy 3500 Pickup
    There a few ways to do this. If your 2007 Toyota Solara has a manual transmission you can use a tow bar ans base plates to tow your vehicle. If your vehicle has the U151E transmission you would need a transmission lube pump to flat tow the vehicle or you could rent a tow dolly, which would hold the front wheels off the ground. You could also rent a 16 foot car hauler trailer. If your vehicle has the U250E transmission you will have to use a tow dolly or trailer to transport the Solara. If...

  • Can Trailer Wiring 118420 Be Used to Tow a 2010 Honda Fit and if Not What Parts are Needed
    You are correct, the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, item # 118420, is designed to tow a trailer with your Fit, not to tow the Fit behind a motorhome. The # 118420 harness will not work for towing the Fit, so you will need a different wiring harness altogether. There are several options for tow bar wiring for the 2010 Honda Fit. Blue Ox recommends their Bulb and Socket Tail Light Wiring Kit, item # BX8869. I like this kit because it keeps the RV wiring completely separate from the Dinghy...

Keep in mind that this tow bar is rated for towing speeds of 45 miles per hour or less. A better tow bar option would be the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, # BX7322 , which is designed for towing long distances and more frequently. You will need some other items along with the tow bar to complete your towing setup. First, a base plate kit for the PT Cruiser is needed. The Blue...

You will need to refer to your owners manual for procedures and restrictions for towing your Ranger, and make sure that the Ranger is below the 5,000 pound capacity of the tow bar. You will also have to keep in mind that this tow bar is rated for towing speeds of 45 miles per hour or less. A better tow bar option would be the Blue Ox Adventurer Tow Bar, # BX7322, which is...

    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 compatible...

First and most important, the 2001 Buick Century will need a transmission lube pump to safely be towed behind the Venture. Next, you will need a base plate kit for the front of the Century. The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, # BX1509, would be a great choice. To attach the base plate kit to your Venture you will need a Tow Bar. If your Venture has a 2 inch hitch, the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar,...

These are fully compatible with the Alpha Tow Bar # BX7380. Safe and legal flat towing requires a number of other components too, including safety cables (which come with the Aladdin), a wiring/lighting kit and a braking system for the towed car. Also a high/low hitch adapter is often needed to keep the connected...

    To safely tow your truck, you'll need a base plate, tow bar, safety cables, a wiring solution to ensure the truck taillights work in conjunction with the coach and a supplemental braking system. I'd recommend the Blue Ox # BX2163 base plate kit and the Blue Ox Avail tow bar, part # BX7420. The Avail is rated for vehicles weighing up to 10,000 lbs, which should be fine for your F350. To wire the taillights of the truck, I'd recommend a bulb and socket kit like part # BX8869. You'll also...

First, the Tow Ready tow bar, # 63180 is only rated for 5,000 pounds and your 1996 Chevy Silverado could easily exceed this capacity. The other problem with the tow bar is that it is only rated for a maximum speed of 45 miles per hour. We need to get you a proper set up. The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the truck owners manual to determine if it can be flat towed and if so what special...

In order to use your Falcon tow bar you will have to use adapter # RM-031 that adapts the Roadmaster tow bar for use with the Blue Ox base plates. If you need safety cables, I recommend the straight cables, # RM-646, because the Falcon all terrain tow bar has cable guides on each arm. For lighting, you can use the Blue...
