Today, we're going to be taking a look at the best flat tow setup for your 2020 Ram 1500. There's five main components you'll need when flat towing your Ram behind your motor home. You'll need your base plate, which provides the connection point for your tow bar on your Ram. You'll need your tow bar, which is the connection between your motor home and your vehicle, your safety cables, which is the supplemental connection in addition to your tow bar, your diode wiring, which takes all the lighting signals from your motor home, transfers them to your vehicles so they can be seen at the back of the vehicle, so people around you will know your intentions when you're going down the road, and lastly, your supplemental braking system, which will apply the existing brakes on your vehicle when you apply the brakes in your motor home to help to come to a seamlessly smooth stop.Now our customer opted for Demco's base plate, which is a great base plate. It looks great when it's installed, but there's one major flaw with it that I just didn't really like and that's the bracket that it provides with you to mount your wiring. I ended up not using that bracket as it comes off the side and it just looks kind of goofy. more

Next we'll need to gain access here to the manufactured wiring for the running light, turn and brake signal circuits. You can try and peel back the tape, or if you must, use a utility knife and cut the tape to gain access to the manufacturer's wiring. If you cut, be careful not to cut the wire underneath. Now once we remove the tape, we can peel the wire loom back and expose the wires. more
