All Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2020 Ram 1500 With EcoDiesel Engine


I saw your info on base plates for Ram 1500, at the bottom it says it won’t work on ecodiesel. Is there a baseplate for a 2020 Ram 1500 4x4 with ecodiesel? I’ve done business with you before and very satisfied. I hope you can help in this instance. Thanks.

I checked with Roadmaster and verified there are base plates that fit your 2020 Ram 1500 with an EcoDiesel engine. I'll list these base plates for you along with the rest of the parts needed to flat tow your truck:

- Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-522203-5
- Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-522
- Safety Chains: Roadmaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # RM-643
- Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267
- Supplemental Braking System: Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # SM99251
- For a motorhome with air brakes: Air Force One Supplemental Braking System for Motorhomes with Air Brakes # SM99243

I really like the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plates because they have removable arms so they won't be something that is otherwise noticeable. The Falcon tow bar is a great option because it has long arms for easier maneuverability when towing.

The Flexo-Coil wiring kit is designed to prevent any type of electrical feedback to keep your Ram's electrical system safe, and both the Stay-IN-Play DUO and Air Force One are high-quality and very popular systems because they are one-time installs which will never require any type of removal or reactivation, and give you braking proportional to that of your motorhome. This results in much smoother braking than most systems which send out a pre-set amount of braking power and thus are more rigid.

You may also need a high-low adapter in order to keep your 2020 Ram 1500 level when towing, and I've added a link to a help article which shows you how to determine if you need an adapter, as well as a link to our selection of adapters. Additionally, I have added links to instruction manuals, video reviews and installations for you to take a look at.
