This is the third time I have order base plates and electrical hook ups from etrailer and love this company. We have a 1979 MCI Bus conversion and it is difficult at time finding things for towing etc for it because of age. Not with etrailer, they have it all. We have towed a 96 S-19 chevy, a 98 Jeep was next and this year we got a 2001 Jeep Cherokee which we got the electrical kit for from etrailer.com and the base plates are still on the way. Everything fits nicely and if you are unsure of how it all goes together just watch their video''s on the etrailer website which are very informational.
Thank You etrailer.com for being there when we need you. See you all down the road....


Comments
Still working very well and didnt even have to pull the bumper off to install it. very strong units. the electrical hookups worked well also and easy to hookup as well. Lights all work well. The brake cable system I had on my previous Jeep I mover to the cherokee but was a real pain to find a good pass through because of all the mechanicals in the Jeep cherokee but good it through finally.

Product is very well built and is hidden within the bumper/grille. Installation wasn't too difficult, reinstallation of front bumper requires 2 people.
Pleased with end results.




by:

Installation instructions were great, no issues or questions. I ran the wire thru the frame, and used split wire loom and tape to protect wiring when outside the tube frame.




by:
Roadmaster

I have rigged several cars for towing, and Roadmaster has a good wide range of products that allow me to get exactly what I need. And they always work as you expect. I have always gotten them via etrailer because they stock them and make sure they work as specified.




by:

The directions and the diodes make this work. The pieces could likely be purchased for a lower price somewhere else but having all together is very worth the kit price. Running the wires through the firewall and to the back of the vehicles is the biggest part of the work but I got it done. Love that feeling of accomplishment.




by:

Good system, worked fine but you have to be ok at wiring and understand the process. I found another wiring kit (on Etrailer) that is all pre-wired with a wire harness with connectors. Plug and play. No cutting or wiring connectors. Overall this kit works well!

2021 Ford Ranger

Very professionally expedited and the installation over the website are priceless. EVERYONE THERE continues to shine.

I made sure that the installation went as smoothly as possible based on my knowledge of electricity electronics. No thing has changed so far. Dependable based on conditions down here with the heat.

The order was exactly what I needed for my 2015 Jeep. It was easy to install and took may be a couple of hours from start to finish. The instructional video was spot on!
Again etrailer provided excellent service. A great company.




by:

Instructions and pictures are excellent. Easy to install and works as expected.


Comments
All good.
Cecil - 09/30/2022


by:

I used the waiting kit on a 2018 Chevy Silverado; my truck has two tail lights and therefore needed an extra set of diodes which were not included with the initial wiring kit. Therefore I has to order an extra diode in order for my turn and brake lights to work properly.


Comments
This kit will work if your vehicle has combined lights - which means the turn and tail lights use the same bulb - or on separate light systems - where the turn and tail lights use separate bulbs. If used on a separate light system and 4 diodes are used then the stop light will work as both the stope and turn signal. Adding two diodes part # RM-792
Roadmaster Hy-Power Diodes (Qty 2)
$26.06
will allow you to use the turn signals on separate light systems.

E Trailer did a great job installing the wiring kit. I can't see where they did anything inside the car and the lights work perfectly.




by:

Worked well. ETrailer’s instructional videos were invaluable. Especially finding space behind the tail light assemblies for diodes!

Jeep Wrangler

I have purchased many items from etrailer and have never been disappointed, with the products being top shelf, delivered on time, and the customer service is top shelf as well. After I get it installed I will send some pictures, to show the quality of the Product . Blue OX backing plate for a Jeep Wrangler. Thanks etrailer for your fast service and free shipping!




by:

Well I was really happy that their sales technician Sherry S. Help package all the required other parts to complete the 4 x4 flat tow job.




by:

It works great. I use my CRV to be my tow vehicle for my RV and use it to tow my kayak trailer. This kit made the wiring job easy for both and after 1 year it’s been perfect

Perfect, always works when I need it which is often

I bought all of my products for flat towing my 2014 Jeep Cherokee for etrailer and I couldn’t be happier. The service was exceptional, the pricing was right, and when I did have a problem, they were right there to take care of it. When I need more goodies for the RV, I will be back!!!!




by:

Only towed 2000 miles so far, then rear ended and pushed into front vehicle. Hope body shop left brackets in place!!!

Install was easy. thank you




by:

Worked great. Not hard to install. Wish the kit came with a fuse disconnect switch.

After a year I would purchase again. Works as stated, and have had no problems.

2019 Jeep Wrangler

Great product and thanks to etrailer.com for the excellent videos detailing how to install the Demco Stay-In-Play Duo braking system. As a result of watching all of the available videos, I learned that there where a couple of different ways to install the system in our Jeep Wranglers. The first installation I did was in our 2019 Wrangler and that was super easy following the one video on your website. The second installation of the system was not as easy because our 2021 Wrangler has a manual transmission and required having to drill a hole in the firewall/floor board to run the wiring and vacuum tube from the passenger compartment to the engine area. If etrailer.com ever has an installation on a Jeep Wrangler with a manual transmission to perform, hopefully they will video tape that installation to guide customers with Jeeps with manual transmissions. I think etrailer.com's idea of mounting the control box on the fuse box is by far the cleanest and easiest way to install the Demco braking system.
I also followed etrailer.com's videos for installing the brake light system and the base plate on both our Wranglers and could not be happier with them. Thanks etrailer for all you offer.

I have ordered from etrailer for years and why I come back is I know from experience the type of service they provide!

Just what we needed to have lights on our RV's tow vehicle. Easy to follow instructions and simple to install. Affordable option.




by:

I'm not happy cause it isn't plug n play as I was told. I have not put it on yet. I'm afraid if I cut wires it will ruin my warranty.




by:

Easy to install. Videos are great

For the installation the instructions were good, but watching some videos made it much easier to take apart a brand new car. All went well. Installed on a 2020 Chevy Equinox 2.0

  • Wiring a 1994 Toyota Pickup to Tow Behind a Motorhome
    We carry wiring kits for towing vehicles behind motorhomes. I would recommend RoadMaster part # RM-154. It is a complete kit that will let you wire your 1994 Toyota Pickup to be towed behind your motorhome without using the magnetic tow lights. Since your Toyota should have separate brake and turn signals, you will need one of two wiring diagrams based on whether or not your motorhome has seperate turn signals. Thumbnails of these diagrams can be seen towards the bottom of the product page...

  • Wiring a 1994 Jeep YJ for Towing Behind a Motorhome
    The T-One harness you were looking at is to tow a trailer behind the Jeep. It will not work in reverse to tow the Jeep behind a motorhome. You will need RoadMaster part # RM-154. There are wiring diagrams on the page to show you how to wire it depending on the taillight configuration of your motorhome.

  • Does License Plate of Tow Vehicle Need Lit Up When Flat Towing
    It is true that the tow bar lighting kits like the part # RM-154 do not illuminate the license plate of the tow vehicle and it's not really an issue. Reason being is that the plate of the vehicle that's actually driving would still be illuminated (the tow vehicle). The reason you don't need to have the towed vehicle plate illuminated as it's not a vehicle that's doing the driving so being able to identify that vehicle is not relevant since it's not making choices on the highway like the...

  • How to Determine If My RV Has Separate or Combined Lighting for Installation of Roadmaster Diodes
    I do believe you're asking how to determine whether or not your RV has a combined or separate lighting system. If the motorhome’s trailer plug energizes the same pins on the 4 way connector for both brake lights and turn signals, then a 3-to-2 converter is already installed and the motorhome should be treated as combined lighting when installing the Roadmaster # RM-154.

  • Which Taillight Bulbs Does RM-154 Flat Towing Diode Wiring Kit Tap Into on 20020 Chevy Colorado
    When we installed the # RM-154 diode kit on a 2019 Chevy Colorado, we tied the diodes into the top bulb which provides the taillamp, turn signal and brake lamp function. For greater visibility, you could run a jumper to the lower bulb if you wish, but it isn't necessary. I've linked a to an installation video for a different kit, but the diodes install in the same manner. This video shows the wiring connections in greater detail.

  • Installing The Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154 In A 2012 Fiat 500
    To determine the wiring for your 2016 Winnebago View you can look at how the tail lights function. If the brake light also functions as your turn signal then you have combined lighting. The lighting for your 2012 Fiat 500 is wired separately so once you know what the wiring for your motorhome is you can use the corresponding wiring guide I've attached for the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit # RM-154.

    I can confirm when installing the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Kit # RM-154 on a 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL that the tail light wire on the driver's side is white and grey, and the tail light wire on the passenger side is white and orange. These will be the wires you'll use to connect the diodes on the kit to. I've also linked an installation video of this wiring kit on a similar Wrangler JL for you to use as a reference.

If you want the signals sent through the taillight then I recommend using the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit part # RM-154. There won't be any plug-in-play options though.
