Roadmaster Tow Bar Wiring - RM76511

  • 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.


  • 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


  • 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.


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.

Ordering and shipping was fast and easy. Products arrived in good condition. I haven't installed them yet, but it all looks as advertised. Not my first order with etrailer and the customer service was outstanding as always. Why anyone would order from any place other then etrailer I cannot fathom.



After one year, I couldnt be happier. etrailer never disappoints!


Roadsters product worked well. I did not remove the lower dash part, and just did extreme yoga to remove and install the fuse bypass. This was the worst part. I can't believe that Honda put this fuse block in such a difficult to access location. The rest was simple. Installing the small connectors was a trick, (I also didn't use the fuse connector) but I finally got the connections in the fuse block. Drilled the hole from the outside and installed the switch. The location could have been lower and more to the left as there was a thicket portion of the dash on the back that prevented the lock nut from seating, but the switch is tight and works well. This is absolutely the way to go instead of pulling a fuse on my 2014 Honda CRV!



Product is great. Works well and was a fairly easy install.


Very easy to install in my gmc 2013 terrain. Took 5 minutes. Hardest part was drilling hole in fuse box cover. I did not have a 3/4" drill bit so has to drill out edges it largest bit I had. Was fine doing this was. Is expensive for what you get, a fuse holder ,switch, plug in and wires?


I installed the Fusemaster fuse bypass switch on my 2012 Chevy Sonic. Install was a snap. It is mounted on the lower dash to the left of the steering wheel and above the fuse panel. I had to cut the fuse cap off and remove the wire loom to get the plastic nut off the switch. The fusemaster switch will be a great time and effort saver since the DLIS fuse on the Sonic is a pain to remove.


Easy to install. Perfect fit on my Honda 2014 CRV. Video was awesome. Great information on web site to aid in purchasing the correct one the first time.




Very very pleased with service from purchase to follow up. Product video was informative and very helpful. When and if needed I will be back to etrailer again.


Prompt order processing and delivery.


Good Quality. Works well.


Absolutely love our Blue Ox system. Was easy to install (with a little mechanical help) and has served us over 11,000 this past year. We were extremely fortunate that etrailer had a video of our exact year and model which made installation even easier.

We've towed over all sorts of terrain and would absolutely purchase this again and recommend it to anyone who asks!

Perfect product to eliminate the hassle of pulling a fuse each time I tow. Quick and easy to install.


Great product, easy to install, works perfectly. Makes it a lot easier to et the CRV ready to tow. Thanks again etrailer for another great product.



Product update, been using this product for a year now. It has worked flawlessly. No issues, just push the button and youre either ready to tow or you are back to normal operation. Highly recommended.


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! First time hook-up went without a problem and the car towed perfectly - and has ever since. I'm totally sold on this Blue Ox towing system!

Ron F.


Absolutely no problems! A solid purchase that I would make again if needed.


What I needed to take care battery drain situation. After checking around, price was comparably a good price, but nevertheless, this item is OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive for what it is, a plastic switch, fuse holder, wire, and some terminals, with a Roadmaster label. No complaints for etrailer, but the Roadmaster part is just too expensive. I guess I knew that when I ordered it, though.



Terminals would not stay in place regardless of how they were ed. I modified the terminals by using a mini-fuse tap that worked like a plug. Inserted the supplied terminals into the tap, then secured them with electrical tape. Next, I cut off the wire pig-tail on the tap. The mini-fuse tap actually fits in micro-fuse with a click, and is much more secure than the spades supplied by Roadmaster. For the price, it should have come with plug, instead of having to modify the tiny spade connectors.

Thanks for the follow-up after a year of use, and for the additional information!

Absolutely outrageous price and I have to do the same modification to the connection to the fuse panel using a mini fuse connection. The original design is terrible.


did not use, did not need Returning.

I love the fuse bypass. I used it in my Honda CRV which requires a fuse to be pulled each time the car is towed, then replaced when you want to use the radio. Once installed, taking out the radio fuse is a simple push of a switch. The only problem I encountered was gettin the two loose ends into the fuse socket, and once there I felt it necessary to jam in some foam to keep them in place. It would help if Roadmaster would connect the leads like an actual fuse. Other than that it works exactly as advertised.



So right you are. I could not get the two loose ends into the fuse socket. It was designeed for a Mini Fuse not the MICRO fuse in my Honda Fit. Roadmaster need to fix this with an actual fuse-like connector end.


Worked as described fairly easy to install. Received earlier than expected also.


New switch fit perfectly. Operated great. Thanks


This product though I was able to make work for my application was not the exact match for my vehicle. The connections that take the place of the fuse in the fuse box were not compatible. My CRV has micro fuses and the connection prvided was for mini fuses. However once I got past that problem everything else worked fine.

W. D.


Still working fine.


Easy install and save having to pull fu ses


Great Product, and Service & Price


Installed this in my Honda crv, I hired the installation but am very happy that I just have to push the button to go to tow mode now.



Excellent. I hook up my car push the tow mode button and we are off.


Relatively easy to install, instructions were clear and concise .
I am very impressed with service received from you folks.
This is the third time I have ordered from you and all three times the service has been exceptional .
I will certainly be ordering again as I need more products.

Don L.


Product works fine and I am still very happy with my purchase


Very cool! No fuse box yoga! Seriously did honda have to put the fuse that needs to be removed in the most inaccessible place? this solves that issue.

  • Can 2011 Chevy HHR with Automatic Transmission be Flat Towed
    According to my research, the 2011 Chevrolet HHR came with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission and they are both flat-towable as is. However, you will be limited to a maximum of 65 mph while in tow. In order to tow the vehicle with all four wheels down you will need a few components which I have listed for you below: Tow Bar - Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar part # RM-520 Base Plate Kit - Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit part # 3141-1 Safety Cables - RoadMaster...

If you have a 1999 then base plates # RM-521559-4 will not fit. You need # 1528-3. For either set of base plates they are compatible with the Stowmaster tow bar you have. I have included a link showing installation of the 1528-3 base plates for you to view. You will also need safety cables if you do not already have some. I like cables...

  • What Fuses Need to be Pulled to Flat Tow 2019 Chevy Sonic with Remote Start
    Your owners manual would be the correct guide for fuse pulling for your vehicle. We only really can give info we find in the manuals online which means that the manual is the final authority. So since your 2019 Chevy Sonic owners manual says you need to pull the fuses BCM1 and BCM2 that would be all that you'd need to pull. We used the FuseMaster bypass part # RM76511 on a 2019 Sonic just like yours which I have attached an install video for.

  • Will a 2016 GMC Terrain Accumulate Miles when being Towed behind a Motorhome
    Your 2016 GMC Terrain will continue to accumulate miles when it is being flat towed even with the battery disconnected. Short of physically disabling that system (which I am not even certain how to do) there isn't anything that can be done to prevent the vehicle from accumulating miles while be flat towed. There are fuses that will need to be pulled to flat tow your Terrain. If yours is the 4-cylinder model you can use fuse bypass # RM-76517 or if it is a V6 use # RM76511. While these...

    If you are under the 3,500 lb capacity of the hitch you have on your 2002 Fleedwood Tioga, even just by a little bit, you should be fine. 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.

    From my research your 2012 Honda Fit with an automatic transmission can be flat towed. You should verify with your owner's manual just to be sure. You're going to need a tow bar, base plate kit, wiring for the Fit's lights, a supplemental braking system, and probably a high-low adapter to do it.
