Whether we're changing lanes, or we have our turn signal on, or we're slowing down, all the drivers around us can see the signals at the back of our truck.Keep in mind, this is only going to be one component for a 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 battery disconnect, because it is going to make it easier, rather than disconnecting the battery.Whenever you're towing, it is important to have your lights, so everybody knows what's going on, but our diodes are going to allow us to get the lights to the back, without having to have an extra step, like you have with those magnetic lights. Those, you're going to have to set them up, each time you want to tow your truck, and then, once we get where we're going, we're going to have to take them down.Not to mention, typically, there's a wire that's going to be running all the way along the side of the truck, going to the front, to hook up to the motor home. And that wire could potentially start dragging against the paint, and as we're going down the road, eventually scratch it.Our diodes are going to be a one-time installation, so we're not going to deal with any of that. more

You will need a baseplate and that's going to mount directly onto the frame of your Canyon so we have a solid connecting point for our tow bar. Our tow bar is going to be our second item and that's going to connect to the baseplate so that we can hook it up to the motor home, as well.Then we'll have our safety cables and it's going to be secondary safety device in case anything we're to happen to the tow bar become disconnected. This is going to prevent our Canyon from continuing down the road.We'll have a braking system and that's going to apply the brakes to the Canyon itself so we won't have to rely on the motor home to slow it down since we're adding so much weight.And, finally, one last item I would highly recommend is the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect, because in order to flat to our Canyon we do have to disconnect the battery to put it in a tow mode and the Automatic Battery Disconnect is just going to make it a lot easier and a lot more convenient without having to open the hood and get tools out.Our diodes are going to serve two major functions. They're going to take the signal from our motor home as well as the signal from our truck and allow them to go into one, single housing. more

The diodes that are installed on the taillight ensure that the electrical signal can only go to your bulbs, and not back to any electrical component inside the vehicle. The diodes act as a one-way check valve for the electrical current, ensuring that that doesn't happen.Connect our electrical connection, and our breakaway switch. Now all that's left is to place our vehicle into tow mode and hit the road.For your complete flat-tow setup on your 2016 GMC Canyon, we'll be using SMI Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System; Roadmaster's Direct Connect Base Plate Kit; Roadmaster's Diode Wiring Kit; Roadmaster's Automatic Battery Disconnect; Roadmaster's Stop Light Switch Kit; Roadmaster's Falcon All-Terrain Non-Binding Tow Bars; Roadmaster's 64 Inch Single Hook Safety Cables; and you may or may not need a high-low adapter.We'll begin our installation here at the front by mounting our electrical connector bracket.

As far as your complete flat tow set up, you're going to need your base plate, your wiring kit, you're braking system, and your tow bars. And in the event your tow bar doesn't come with safety cables, you'll need to get some of those as well.This diode wiring kit is going to allow our motor home's turn, stop, and tail lamp signals to be transferred from the motor home to our vehicle, and our lights illuminate appropriately to display those signals behind us. What's great about the diodes is that it isolates the circuits that's on your vehicle from the ones coming from your motor home, so you don't have to worry about any back feeding causing damage to your vehicle.To install your diodes and your wiring, you are going to need to remove your tail lights on both the driver and passenger side.

Roadmaster Diode 7 to 6 Wire Coil Kit Installation - 2017 GMC Acadia Limited

Today on our 2017 GMC Acadia we're going to be installing road masters dialed wiring kit. If the tow bar you have came with the coiled cable or you already have one, you can get Roadmaster's Universal Hy-power Diode Wiring kit, which comes with the diodes and the wiring. It does not come with the six foil connector or the coiled cable.As far as your complete flat tow setup, you're going to need your base plate, your wiring kit, your braking system, and your tow bars. And in the event your tow bar doesn't come with safety cables, you'll need to get some of those as well.This diode wiring kit is going to allow our motor homes, turn, stop and tail lamp signal to be transferred from the motor home to our vehicle and our lights illuminate appropriately to display those signals behind us.What's great about the diodes is that it isolates the circuits that's on your vehicle from the ones coming from your motor home so you don't have to worry about any back feeding causing damage to your vehicle.To install your diodes and your wiring, you are going to need to remove your taillights on both the driver and the passenger side. They come out fairly easily, you'll need to open your lift gate, there'll be two little plastic covers, just pop those out of your taillight assembly with a flat bladed screw driver. Then you can remove both the bolts that are located there with a 7 millimeter socket. more

We're going to review and install part number RN-154 from Road Master. This is a universal high-powered diode wiring kit, and we're going to install it on a 2015 GMC Arcadia. With this part number, this is a part series C. Starting from here, these are our diodes, you get four in the kit, and you get the terminal ends, connect up to your wires. Quick note about the diodes, is that when you add power to the system on a vehicle from the RV, what this does is makes your power comes in, doesn't matter which tab you use, and all this goes out in this direction here, typically towards your tail light. That way, power coming in from the RV doesn't back feed into the rest of the circuits in the car, and maybe potentially cause some problems. more
