Video Transcript for RoadMaster Falcon Tow Bar Installation - 2013 Honda CR-V

All right today on this 2013 Honda CR-V, we're going to install part number RM-522. This is the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar. First step is to go ahead and install our quick disconnects onto the car side. These parts will bolt onto the base plate that's already been installed. Now these are labeled, driver's side of the car, and then our accompanying hardware. We've got this plate, which will go over the top with a bolt, one on each side.

This will go on to your base plate, which will get a flat washer, a lock washer, and a nut. Same on both sides. Then, we'll do the same thing on the passenger side. Now we'll just leave these finger tight for now. Just enough where everything holds its shape. Now again, leaving it finger tight, we'll go ahead and put our crossbar into place.

Just go ahead and line up with the pins on top and on the bottom. We'll move it around as needed till it fits together. Try to get it even as you can on both sides. Then we'll go ahead and hand tighten our hardware back here. Let's go ahead and do a quick test run with our crossbar, make sure we can remove it.

Let's go ahead and tighten down our remaining 2 bolts. Let's do one more check. Then we'll go ahead and torque these bolts down as specified in the instructions. Now these parts will stay attached to our base plate. In this application, we take our base plate, it comes with it. Now we'll go ahead and put our crossbar into place.

Then we'll put our locking pins on top. We'll go ahead and put our locking pins into place, matching the picture. If it snaps tight, that's what you want. Let's go ahead work with our tow bar now. We'll go ahead and slide it into the hitch. Line up the hitch pin holes and install the hitch pin that comes with it. Now to release it, we'll go ahead and push it back a little bit, and pull back on this latch and that releases it. When we need to store it, just like that. Also, we can tilt it from one side or the other for storage when you leave it on the RV. Let's go ahead and extend our tow bar to our car. We'll go ahead and rotate it back up, unlatch it, pull it down. We'll go ahead and tilt it to one side and pull out the arms, and this will go into our crossbar. Now we'll go ahead and put our pin into place for this junction or joint. We line up the hole in the pin with this hole in the plate right here. We'll take our safety pin, just like the ones on top. Make sure it snaps into place. We'll do this on both sides. OK now this is all the parts that come with the Falcon All-Terrain tow bar. Now we still need to add some safety cables. We're going to use part number RM-645, the Single Hook Safety Cables, also from Roadmaster. Here's one of our safety cables, there's 2 that come with the kit. You can see it's just one hook. This end will thread through the space provided for on our tow bar. We'll use one of these quick links that comes with the kit, and we'll attach this to our base plate. When you're done towing for the day, you can store the tow bar with these cables on the inside as well. One side is done, let's do the other side. Now when we connect our safety cables to our hitch, we want to cross them just like this. Just go ahead and hook them up. All right, now see how the clamp can't work on the hitch here We're going to have to use an extra part. To do that, we're going to use some extra quick links from Roadmaster, part number RM-910022. Now these are rated at 6,000 pounds, just like the cables are. All that's left over is to hook up our break-away cable, and also our electrical cable, which will vary from installation to installation. To release it we just pull up on this lever then we can easily release the arm. Let's go ahead and make the rest of our hook-ups, and take it for a test drive. With that, that'll finish it for the Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar, part number RM-522 from Roadmaster on our 2013 Honda CR-V. .

Used these with the Raodmaster Blackhawk 2 Tow bar and the Direct connect base kit with removable arms. They were easy to run thru the channels on the tow bar and did not hang down excessively. Very easy to connect with the hooks on one end and the O rings on the other. Would recommend! 693219

  • Recommended Safety Cable That Is At Least 64 Inches Long
    The safety cables I highly recommend are from Roadmaster, the Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables. These cables are galvanized steel with a strong vinyl coating for protection and hooks that are forged steel for optimal strength. You can get them in either 64 inch or 76 inch lengths: - 64 Inches (Single Hook): Roadmaster 64" Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables - 8,000 lbs # RM-645 - 64 Inches (Double Hook): RoadMaster 64" Double Hook, Straight Safety Cables - 10,000 lbs # RM-648 -...

  • Where are Roadmaster 64 Inch Safety Cables Measured From?
    The Roadmaster 64" Single Hook, Straight Safety Cables # RM-645 is the overall length of the unit. If you are at all concerned with the amount of length I highly recommend going to a longer cable such as the 76" # RM-645-76 or the 80" Double Hook # RM-674.

    If you have the room on your base plates connection to securely attach the hook, then there will be no issue with using the Roadmaster # RM-645 Safety Hooks. I found another option for you. The Roadmaster 64 Inch Double Hook Safety Cables, # RM-646, is the better option for you. Theses cables have the same features as the # RM-645 cables that you referenced, but this set includes hooks with spring loaded latches on both ends of the safety cable.

  • Straight or Coiled Cables for Falcon All-Terrain Tow Bar?
    Because this tow bar has a built-in cable guide, I would go with the straight cables, part RM-645. The coiled cables might be a little hard to thread through the cable guide.

  • Recommended Safety Cable Extensions When Rise or Drop is Required for Level Flat Towing
    If you need to add just a little more length to safety cables like # RM-645 due to a high-low adapter, I recommend using the safety cable extensions. Based on your current cable capacity, we have the 10 inch # RM-650648-10 extensions. For a 4 inch drop these extensions will allow a little slack to meet your needs.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2017 Ford Edge with Push-Button Start Behind a Motorhome
    The battery does have to be disconnected to flat tow your 2017 Ford Edge with push-button start. The automatic battery disconnect, # RM-766, is recommended to do this automatically so you won't have to spend time doing it manually. This disconnect has been used on the positive terminal with other vehicles and I see no reason why you couldn't do the same on your Edge. If you need all of the other parts to flat tow your Edge then I recommend the following parts: Base plates: # RM-524454-5...

I strongly recommend a non-binding tow bar because with it you will not have to have the vehicle and motorhome perfectly straight and level to hook up or disconnect.
