Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76511

  • Fuse Bypass
  • Bypasses Vehicle Wiring
  • Roadmaster
  • Engine Compartment
  • Custom
  • Mini Fuse

Take some of the hassle out of towing your car with this fuse bypass system. FuseMaster replaces your vehicle's mini-fuse and lets you prep for towing by simply flipping a switch. Integrated holder keeps fuse secure and functional.


Features:

  • Bypasses towed car's mini-fuse so you can tow your vehicle without draining its battery
    • Provides a simple alternative to removing a fuse every time you tow
    • Stores fuse so that you won't lose it
  • Installs quickly, easily and permanently
    • Remove fuse from car's fuse box and install FuseMaster in its place
    • Put fuse into FuseMaster fuse holder
    • Mount bypass switch near fuse box
  • Maintains functionality of mini-fuse when switched on
    • Flip switch to "drive" position and drive like normal
  • Overrides mini-fuse when switched off
    • Flip switch to "tow" position and you're good to tow
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: ATM mini-fuse not exceeding 20 amps
  • Harness length: 13"


Note: This FuseMaster bypass is not designed to hold an ATM micro fuse. If your vehicle has a micro fuse, you will need to use an ATM mini fuse of the same amperage (not included) to install in the FuseMaster.


Some cars can only be towed if you get under the hood and pull a fuse. If you don't remove this fuse prior to towing, there's a good chance that your battery will be drained by the time you reach your destination.


Roadmaster's FuseMaster makes it easy to prep your vehicle for towing. Simply remove the fuse indicated in your car's manual and replace it with the bypass. The system will hold the removed fuse and maintain its functionality. So once the initial installation is complete, you don't have to remove or replace your fuse again.


Whenever you need to drive your car, just make sure the switch on the bypass is flipped into the "drive" position. When on, the fuse will be active and your vehicle will function normally. Then, when it comes time to tow, switch the FuseMaster to "tow." This will render the fuse inactive so that you can flat tow your car without its battery being drained.


Installation

The preferred location for mounting the FuseMaster switch is the access panel inside your vehicle that leads to your fuse box. This switch must be mounted on a plastic surface that is no thicker than 1/4". Do not mount the switch on a metal surface.


Roadmaster FuseMaster Switch

Included with the FuseMaster are 2 stickers: "Drive" and "Tow." Once the switch is installed, you can place the stickers on the access panel - one on each side of the toggle - to remind you which way the switch must go for each application. Place the "Drive" sticker on the side of the toggle that has the white dot. (To drive, the switch must be flipped so that the side with the white dot is depressed.) The "Tow" sticker can then be placed on the opposite side.

Easy installation for my 14 Honda CRV. Fuse #19 was removed for this. I do not recommend installing switch where the video shows you as the wiring harness is just too short to reach. I had to splice in extra cable to reach. I suggest installing the button in the small compartment below. 799204

My base plate and tow bar has performed flawlessly since the day it was installed. I took a chance by installing the equipment before picking up my motorhome which was 1,300 miles away - hoping everything would match up as advertised. And it was seamless!

Ask the Experts about this Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring

  • Pulling Fuses to Flat Tow a 2019 Chevy Sonic
    From my research you're correct, fuses need to be removed in order to flat tow your 2019 Chevy Sonic. It sounds like the same is true for the 2018 model as well. You can remove them and insert them manually each time you tow or we sell fuse bypasses from Roadmaster called the FuseMaster. The FuseMaster installs permanently in the Sonic and makes "removing" the fuse as easy as flipping a switch. This bypasses the fuse without actually having to take it out each time you tow. If...

  • Fuse Bypass to Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
    Actually, fuse bypass # RM76512 is not recommended for the 2014 Honda CR-V. The correct one is # RM76511. You should only have to pull that one fuse. But you can check your vehicle owners manual to be sure. I have included a link to a video to the right showing how the fuse bypass installs. Fuse bypass # RM76512 is listed for a 2012 - 2014 Chevy Cruze.

    The "radio" fuse of your 2014 Honda CR-V will need to be pulled and replaced with the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass part # RM76511. This product will make it easy to deactivate this circuit, you will only need to flip a switch instead of remove the fuse every time you tow.

  • Best Wiring and Fuse Bypasses for Flat Towing a 2016 Honda HR-V
    To make disconnecting the 3 fuses on your 2016 Honda HR-V I recommend installing the FuseMaster Fuse Bypasses # RM76511 and # RM76512. This gives you the ability to "remove" (disconnect) the 3 fuses on your HR-V without physically removing them. There are no switches that allow you to disconnect 3 fuses with 1 switch but this reduces it to just 2 switches. For wiring I highly recommend the Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 which splices into the wiring behind your tail lights and also...

  • Do Fuses Need to Get Pulled to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda Fit
    Yes, to flat tow your 2013 Honda Fit you will need to pull fuses. To make that easier the part # RM76511 that you referenced is recommended. This will install in place of the fuse and will allow the circuit to be deactivated with the flip of a switch. You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine which fuse needs to get pulled and for more information on flat towing your vehicle.

  • Installation of Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass RM76511 in 2018 Chevy Sonic Automatic
    The FuseMaster bypass # RM76511 is not designed to hold an ATM micro fuse so if your 2018 Chevrolet Sonic has a micro fuse, you will just need to use an ATM mini fuse of the same amperage value (not included) to install in the FuseMaster # RM76511. The DLIS fuse that needs to be pulled is fuse position 1 according to the online manual I reviewed, however the manual does not mention the fuse type or specific amp value.

  • 2015 Honda Fit Fuse Bypass Switch Recommendation
    I checked with Roadmaster and they recommend both the part # RM76511 and the part # RM76512. The # RM76512 is great because it can kill two circuits at a time. Since you have two circuits in the interior of your vehicle that need to be deactivated plus one under the hood I would recommend both products for you. I attached an install video that shows the # RM76511 installed in a similar Honda Fit as yours

    If your 2014 Honda CR-V owner's manual says to only pull the #19 ACC radio fuse, use part # RM76511; if it states to pull the #19 ACC radio fuse and the #20 ACC key lock fuse, use part # RM76512. Both are a fit for your vehicle.

    The #19 (ACC) fuse is the correct fuse to pull on your 2014 CR-V for flat towing but some of the owner's manuals showed the incorrect location of this fuse in its diagram. Your manual may highlight this particular fuse as the fourth in the row of 7.5 amp fuses. The #19 fuse though is actually the first in this row of 7.5 amp fuses, as indicated in the attached diagram. To assist with this process I recommend adding the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass # RM76511. Once installed this...

    You are correct in that the Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass part # RM76511 and the Blue Ox Fuse ByPass Switch part # BX88272 both have a 20 amp max fuse rating. This is mainly due to the gauge of wire that is used in the harness in relation to the distance that the circuit needs to travel. However, I do still have a solution for you that will not require you to physically pull the fuse each and every time and that is the Blue Ox Fuse ByPass High-Amp Fuse Switch part # BX88274 which...

You will want to verify the weight of your vehicle though at a weigh station just be sure that the advertised curb weight is accurate. Also, you will need to make sure you don't ever load any cargo in the vehicle when you are flat towing it as that would put it over the 3,500 lb mark.

It sounds like you still have things with power running even with the key in the flat tow position. So it could still potentially drain the battery.

    Page 236 of the owners manual for a 2013 Honda CR-V states for extended towing you will need to remove the 7.5 amp accessory radio fuse located in the interior fuse box. This fuse should not be too difficult to pull but if you wanted to use a fuse bypass it is # RM76511. There should not be a problem installing any tow package components under the vehicle. For any wiring you can zip tie it up to an existing wiring harness. Avoid areas that may pinch or burn the wiring.
