How to Install the Roadmaster Falcon Tow Bar on a 2011 Honda Fit


Today, on our 2011 Honda Fit, were going to be installing the RoadMaster Falcon All Terrain Toolbar. Part number RM-522. This vehicle has already had the base plate and a previous tow bar installed on it, so were actually just replacing with this new Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar. Were going to need to attach these brackets to the removable arms. We want to make sure that we have the drivers side and that this side points up. Now well take the plate, comes with the kit.Take a hex bolt, go through the plate, the bracket and through the removable arm.

On the back side, well put a flat washer, a lock washer and a hex nut. Well do this for both mounting locations. Now while we put the hardware in, were just going to hand tighten it down for now, because well need to test fit the crossbar to make sure everythings lined up properly. Now well go ahead and set our tow bar up into position. Once we have our tow bar in place, were going to go ahead and snug down the bolts on the back just to make sure everything stays in place.

Do that for both sides.Now that we have the brackets snug down, we can go ahead and set the tow bar off. We then need to torque the hardware down to the manufacturers specification. Now that we have our hardware torqued down, we can go ahead and reinstall the crossbar. With our crossbar back in place, we can go ahead and put the pins back in. Next, were ready to go ahead, were going to hook up to our RV.

Now this RV already has a drop hitch in it, and depending on the height of your RV, well depend on whether you need one of these or not. Now there needs to be no more or no greater than 3 inches from the center of the receiver to down here where the pins go through.Either plus or minus, 3 inches from being even. We can go ahead and slide our tow bar in place, go ahead and put a pin in it as well as the clip. Well then pull the handle down to lower the tow bar down. Pull the arm out so it lines up with the hole here.

Take our pin, go through both, bring the clip around, lining up the holes, putting it down into position and snapping it down. Well then go ahead and repeat the same process over here on the other side. You could see here, were just over 17 inches to the center of the pin. Well come up here to the center of the receiver and were about 18 and a half. Were within an inch and a half of being completely level.You will need to hook up some safety cables. For todays install, were going to be using the RoadMaster 64-inch straight safety cables rated for 6,000 pounds. Part number RM-645. Weve had this tow bar out on our test course with the previous install. Now lets take a look at it in action. That will complete our installation of the RoadMaster Falcon All Terrain Tow Bar, part number RM-522 on our 2011 Honda Fit. .
