Recommended Flat Towing Set Up for a 2024 Buick Encore GX  


Will the Roadmaster Battery disconnect for a 2022 Buick Encore GX listed on your webpage work on a 2024 Encore GX Avenir AWD? Thanks for your help


Expert Reply:

Yes, it will. The Roadmaster Battery Disconnect with Switch for Towed Vehicle w/ Flat Tow Brake System item # RM-766 is not only compatible with your 2024 Buick Encore GX but it is recommended to be used by Roadmaster. This a great part that makes disconnecting and reconnecting your battery extremely simple.

Here are some other parts you will need to flat tow your 2024 Buick Encore GX:

Tow Bar and Safety Chains - Blue Ox Alpha 2 Non-Binding Tow Bar 2" Hitch - 6,500 lbs item # BX7380

Base Plate Kit - Blue Ox Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit - Removable Arms item # BLU84UR

Wiring Harness - Demco 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit w/ 7-Wire to 6-Wire Coiled Connector item # DM9523010-54

Supplemental Braking System - SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System item # SM99251 or item # SM99243 if your motorhome has air brakes.

High Low Adapter - The tow bar needs to be within 3" of level. If you measure the height of the inside top of the hitch receiver tube on your RV, and the height difference is more than 3 inches above/below the base plate tab height, you'll need a high/low adapter. I have linked a FAQ article that explains all this in more detail along with our selection of adapters.

2024 Buick Encore GX owner’s manual requires that "negative battery terminal" be disconnected. The negative terminal configuration is not normal. There is a bracket attached to the terminal that (a) connects the negative ground to the chassis and (b) connects another "wire to something else". Should the negative ground (a) be disconnected from the terminal bracket leaving the "other wire to something else” connected or should the bracket on the terminal be disconnected causing both the ground (a) and "other wire to something else” (b) to be disconnected?

@PaulR I think a look at your owner's manual and you will just want to disconnect the negative cable and leave the other wires connected.
