Is Brake Light Relay Required for Blue Ox Patriot Braking System


Will any other accessories be needed if I use the Blue Ox Patriot Braking system on a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with the Hopkins HM56200 ?


Expert Reply:

Since the Patriot # BRK2019 is wireless and portable the installation process is quite simple as compared to other braking systems. The only other electrical component needed is a 12V outlet kit # RM-9332 which provides operating power to the Patriot. If you are using a magnetic tow light set-up, such as # TL21RK, you need nothing else to install the Patriot.

If you are using another type of tow bar wiring kit, such as a diode kit like Roadmaster # RM-154 or the Hopkins Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # HM56200, then you would need the relay kit # RM-88400.

A supplemental braking system like the Blue Ox Patriot # BRK2016 is one of the essential components for flat towing a vehicle behind a motorhome. All of the required items to flat tow are outlined in the linked overview article.
