Wiring and Lighting Solutions for Flat Towing a 2005 Acura MDX Behind a Motor Home


I plan on using my 2005 Acura MDX to tow behind my motorhome. Is the 6 wire enough capacity?


Expert Reply:

For wiring, the vehicle being towed only needs the lighting functions, left and right turn signals, brake lights, and running lights. The 6-Way connector that comes with RoadMaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar, # RM-576, has the capacity to provide these functions.

You will also need a lighting solution for the 2005 Acura MDX that is compatible with the 6-Way round connector. You can use the Roadmaster Standard Magnetic Tow Lights, # RM-2120. This would be an ideal solution if you do not plan on towing the MDX often with a 6-way to 4 flat adapter, # HM47320.

There are other lighting solutions. To find the one that will work best for you, I have included a link to an article that will help. I have also included a link to our series of FAQ articles on flat towing for you to view.
