How to Install the RoadMaster Blackhawk 2 All Terrain Tow Bar on a 2010 Jeep Commander


Today on our 2010 Jeep Commander we're gonna be taking a look at the Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 all-terrain non-binding tow bar, as part of our flat two setup.There are five main components for flat tow setup for the 2010 Jeep Commander. You have your base plate, you have your diode wiring kit, you have your braking system, your tow bar, and your safety cables.Here we have Roadmaster's Blackhawk 2 all-terrain tow bar. What a tow bar does is it gives you a solid connection between the base plate on your Jeep and your RV. This specific tow bar is gonna come with this quick disconnect bar. Depending on which base plate you choose, you may or may not need to use this bar.As you can see here, we have our tow bar connected to the back our RV and to our Jeep. This tow bar is gonna have a 10,000 pound weight capacity and it's gonna be a non-binding tow bar, which gives you the ability to disconnect your vehicle on un-level ground.

We're gonna have three pivot points. You're gonna have one for both arms. Allows your arms to work independently, side to side. You're gonna have two, which allows it to go up and down. Three, which allows this to rotate side to side, so it allows your tow bar to rotate side to side, for driving on un-level ground.The nice thing about this tow bar is it allows us to store it on the back of the camper.

This spring-loaded tab is what locks it in place in the stored position. Each arm will lock into place and to disconnect, or to unlock the arm, simply pull the lever, push the arm in. Another nice thing about this tow bar that's gonna set it apart from others, it's gonna have channels on each arm for your safety cables and for your wiring. This is gonna help keep your safety cables and wiring from dragging along the ground.This tow bar can be used with all Roadmaster base plates and can be used with other base plates, but may require an additional adapter. One thing that I do want to stress is that when you're hooking up your tow bar to your vehicle, you want to make sure that that angle is as straight as possible.

What you're gonna do is measure from the ground to the center of your receiver tube on your hitch on your RV, and the center from the ground to the center of your base plate, where your tow bar attaches. If that number is within three inches, you're good. If it's more than three inches, you may need to get a rise or drop.That'll do it for a look at the Roadmaster Blackhawk 2 all-terrain non-binding tow bar on our 2010 Jeep Commander flat tow setup.
