The five major components that you're going to need when flat towing your MKZ behind your motor home is going to include your tow bar, which is the connection point between your motor home and your vehicle, your safety cables, which is a supplemental connection point in addition to your tow bar that's there in the event of a catastrophic disconnect.

Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 Lincoln MKZ- Video

Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit Installation - 2016 Lincoln MKZ

Hi there, Lincoln owners. Today on your 2016 Lincoln MKZ, we're going to be installing Roadmaster's Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit.This is one of the major components needed to flat tow your MKZ behind your motorhome. In addition to your baseplate, you're also going to need your diode wiring, your supplemental braking system, your safety cables, and your tow bar to connect them together.This is what our base plate is going to look like when it's installed. The majority of the base plate is going to be completely hidden behind your front fascia, and it's going to be a Direct-Connect face plate, so your tow bars are going to connect directly to the arms here. What's nice about this compared to your crossbar connection, the crossbar connection is going to require a little bit more assembly with the crossbar attaching to the base plate after it's installed, and then if you want to remove it, there's a little bit more involved removing the crossbar.With the Direct-Connect style, if you want to get rid of these two to give you a little bit more stock appearance, you simply pull the pin, give it a twist, and they pop right out. To put them back in, you just push them in, twist them until they lock in place. more

Rob: Rob here at etrailer.com, and today you're going to be taking a look at the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit on our 2016 GMC Sierra 1500.Now, our Roadmaster Base Plate is going to allow us to hook up a tow bar, so we can safely and securely flat tow our Sierra down the road. Keep in mind this is only going to be one component for a complete safe flat-tow setup for your Sierra. For our Sierra, we're going to need a base plate, a tow bar, safety cables, tow bar wiring, and a braking system, and specifically for our GMC Sierra, I do recommend getting a better disconnect because it is going to make it easier rather than disconnecting the battery.What I really like about our base plate that it has a really clean appearance to it. It's going to go right where our tow hooks go, so you can see that we're not going to have to change too much to the front of our Sierra, and whenever we're not towing it, we actually have the option of removing the arm. We can remove the clip from the pin. Then we can pull out the pin and then the whole arm is going to come out giving a lot more of a clean appearance, almost just like the tow hook inaudible 00:01:04.The Roadmaster name Direct-Connect comes from the fact that our tow bar is going to hook directly to our base plate. more

Rob here at etrailer.com, and today we're going to be taking a look at the Demco Classic Base Plate Kit on our 2018 Ram 1500. Now, our base plate is going to attach directly to our Ram's frame so we have a solid connection point for our tow bar to hook up to and we can safely flat tow it down the road.Our Demco Classic Base Plate is going to have permanently-mounted fixed arms. We can see them sticking out past the bumper right here. Now, a lot of other base plates on the market do have removable arms, so they're going to have a lot cleaner of a look when we're not towing, but one thing to keep in mind with those, is we are going to have to find a spot to store the arms for when we're not towing our Ram.Our Demco Base Plate is going to work with all Demco tow bars as well as other manufacturers' tow bars with an adapter that is sold separately. Whenever you go to hook up your tow bar, it's going to be extremely simple. We'll just slide it in place, line up the pin holes, put in our pin, and finally secure it down.Right here on the outside of where an attachment point is, we're going to have our safety cable attachment point. more

Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit Installation - 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Ryan: Hey, everybody. Ryan here at etrailer.com.Today on our 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're going to be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Direct-Connect baseplate kit with removable arms.Now, the reason you would want this baseplate is when it's in place, it's going to allow us to connect to a tow bar, which in turn will let us flat tow our Jeep down the road. That's going to be nice. That way, when you're going out of town, you don't have to worry about finding another person to drive your Jeep separately.Now, compared to some of the other base plates on the market, in my opinion, this one just has a more heavy duty feel and a more rugged look, which that obviously blends in nicely with Jeep's appearance.Now, whenever you actually get your hands on this baseplate kit, you're going to tell just how solid it really is. You're going to know that it's built to last for a very long time.While many of our customers are relatively new to the flat tow world, and they can feel a little overwhelmed on which components to get. It's actually relatively simple. more

Today on our 2018 Jeep Cherokee, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Crossbar-Style Base Plate Kit with Removable Arms. Now keep in mind that it's only gonna be one component you need for a complete, safe flat-tow setup. For a complete setup you're gonna need a base plate, a tow bar, tow bar wiring, a braking system, and finally safety cables.So here's what our base plate looks like once we have it installed. This is gonna give us a really solid attachment point so we can hook up our tow bar and safely flat-tow our Jeep down the road. One of the nicest things about our base plate is whenever we're not towing, most of us are gonna look at this and say, "I really don't want this bracket sticking out." Well, we can come to this pull ring here, simply pull on it, rotate the arm, and we can pull it out. Now it's gonna be a lot less visible and be hidden pretty well in here in the under grill part. more

Today on our 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Crossbar Style Base Plate Kit with removable arms.Here's what our base plate's gonna look like once we have it installed. This is gonna give us a really solid attachment point to hook our tow bar up to, so we can flat tow our Jeep safely down the road.I do wanna mention that the accessories we have mounted up here are not included with the kit. Here we have our breakaway switch for our braking system, our airline fitting for our braking system, and then finally our electrical plug. But our base plate is gonna come with a bracket to mount your breakaway switch for your supplemental braking system, as well as two prongs here so you can mount your electrical connector.What I really like about this base plate is the fact that we can actually remove the arms when we're not towing our Jeep. We come to the pull ring here, we can pull it out, we'll twist the arm, and then it'll come out and have a lot cleaner look.Now, if you look, we can see that we're gonna have this crossbeam that's gonna sit right below our bumper, and that's gonna provide a lot of support for our base plate. It's gonna be mounted directly to the frame, but this crossbar here is gonna help reduce the amount of stress that's put on our front suspension.And then whenever we do wanna tow and hook up, we can simply take our arm, we'll put it in, we're gonna press in until that ring comes out, and we can rotate it till it locks into place.Our Roadmaster base plate is gonna work with all quick-disconnects, as well as all Roadmaster tow bars. more
