Roadmaster Universal Diode Wiring Kit Installation - 2009 Subaru Forester- Video

Roadmaster Universal Diode Wiring Kit Installation - 2009 Subaru Forester

Speaker 1: Today on our 2009 Subaru Forester we're going to ve taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit, Part Number RM-152. To help us with our insulation we're also going to be using the Pollak Six Pole Round Pin Trailer Wiring Socket for the vehicle end, Part Number PK-11609. Our diodes are going to install behind our taillights and they're going to allow us to take the signal from our RV and transfer them to our existing lights on our Subaru, so everyone around us knows what's going on. Whether we have our taillights on, our turn signals or our brake lights.Now since our motor home has a combined lighting system which means that our brake lights and our turn signal is going to be the same bulb, on our Subaru we're wiring it up so that the brake and turn signals are going to be coming out of this bulb, but when we drive normally, the turn signal on our Subaru is still going to be that separate one. Now aside from protecting our vehicle making sure there's no back feeding, our diodes are going to have a big benefit opposed to a lot of other systems. We're not going to have any switches to flip. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Subaru Forester, we're gonna be taking a look at and showing you how to install the Roadmaster diode seven wire to six wire Flexo-coil wiring kit, part number RM-15267. The importance of a diode kit is it's gonna allow our Subaru to accept the light signal from our RV, so it's gonna mirror it whenever we go down the road. Whenever we have our turn signal on or our brakes, it's gonna come through the RV and go to our Subaru, allowing all the other drivers to know exactly what we're doing so we can get down the road safely. Our diodes are gonna be permanently installed behind our taillights, so it's not gonna change the look of our car and it's not gonna affect daily driving. It's just gonna allow the signal to come in from our RV and go out to our taillight, but also have the factory signal come in and go out to our taillight when we're doing regular driving. Not only that, but it's gonna protect our vehicle and the RV from any kind of back feeding or short circuits so we don't have to worry about any damage.Along with our diodes, it's gonna come with all the wire and connectors necessary to get it in place, and a plug to mount on the front of our car, and the Flexo-coil that's gonna connect our car to our RV. more
