How to Install the Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain Tow Bar on a 2020 Ford Escape


Clay: Hey guys, how's it going Clay here at etrailer.com. Today we'll be taking a look at the Roadmaster Nighthawk All-Terrain Non-Binding Tow Bar with LED Lights. We'll be using this tow bar on a 2020 Ford Escape Hybrid. It's going to match the look of our vehicle and they're both going to look really nice. This is one of our key components in a flat tow setup. We have our tow bar and in this case, we have a high, low adapter.

We have our safety cables, our airline tube for our brakes for our supplemental braking system, our breakaway switch, and our base plate. Our tow bar is non-binding, which is really nice because whenever it's time to disconnect, you simply just lift up and that'll release the arms on our tow bar. It really does have a nice, it's kind of a wrinkle coat blackout finish. It looks really nice behind our RV. It's also going to resist rust and corrosion very well.On each side of our tow bar, there is a really nice LED strip.

This will illuminate when our taillights are on. That way, people can see our car is connected to our motor home. Our tow bar does have the straight channels that way we can use straight safety cables. This is pretty easy to install. You simply take off the clevis hook at the other end and drop it through.So now our tow bar is in the stowed position.

When we're wanting to put it on, we simply lift up. Then there's a nice tab back here on the back, just simply pull that out, and then we can lower our tow bar down. And you want to make sure that you have your pins out before you do this. One really nice feature is these pens are always attached. They attach to the pens right here, or our clips, I should say, are attached to our pins.

So now we can go ahead and lower it down, kind of separate it out. You can push it over and then make our connection.We'll simply turn our pin, drop our clips through, and secure it down. Then we can go ahead and do the other one as well. As you can see this tow bar is pretty easy to work with. Some of them can be kind of brute to turn and maneuver. I really do like this one. Now we can go ahead and hook up our safety cables. Those will just snap onto our base plate right here. And we'll go ahead and do the same thing on the other side. And our tow bar here already comes with the umbilical cord installed, which is super nice, because that can be kind of hard to put it through the channels. You can go ahead and plug it in Now we can grab this side and plug it in to the RV.So we've gone over some of the features and I showed you how to get it, put on the front of your vehicle. So that's going to do it for a look at the Roadmaster Nighthawk All-Terrain Non-Binding Tow Bar with LED Lights.
