Are Additional Lights Required on Towed Vehicle When Using a Tow Dolly


Is the light package on my tow dolly all that is required? Will I need additional tail,turn, and brake on rear of car? I will be traveling in Canada and Alaska, as well as all west coast states.


Expert Reply:

Generally you don't need additional lighting when using a tow dolly that already has lights. However, it's not a bad idea to check with the local laws in the states you'll be traveling in and in Canada.

Some people like to add additional lights just to make it easier to see the vehicle that's on the dolly. If you wish to add lights you'll need to splice in a tow light kit, like # 73864, because the trailer connector on the back of your RV will already be in use with the dolly. Unless you're have more than one connector and can utilize both.
