Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit Installation - 2015 Dodge Durango

Today on our 2015 Dodge Durango, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit with removable arms. Part number RM-521449-4. This is what the base plate looks like when it's installed on the vehicle. As you can see, there isn't a whole lot that sticks out really far. Right here we just got the wiring sticking out for our wiring that's able to mount to these little brackets that are part of it right there. You got a little hook on either side for your safety chains, and right here, is where the arms for the base plate with the brackets on the end go into place.

Dodge Durango Base Plates Questions and Answers

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2018 Dodge Durango R/T AWD behind an RV
  • The Roadmaster base plates will not fit the 2018 Dodge Durango R/T but Blue Ox does not have an exclusion like that for their base plates, # BX2411, which also fit the 2018 Durango. For a compatible tow bar that comes with safety cables I recommend the Alpha, # BX7365. It is rated for 6,500 pounds. For lighting the most popular option is diode kit # RM-15267 but you could also use a magnetic kit such as # C-ATL20A. You may also need a high/low adapter to keep the tow bar level. I...

Each of these is discussed in the linked article on the basics of flat towing, and the other two articles deal with hitch adapters and braking systems specifically.

  • Can Base Plate Kit and Front Trailer Hitch be Installed on a 2015 Dodge Durango Together
  • Since a base plate kit like the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate Kit # RM-521449-4 and the Curt Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # C31033 take up the same space on your 2015 Dodge Durango you would only be able to have one installed at a time. Since new hardware would need to be used each time either of them is installed the best one for you would depend on what you plan on using your Durango for.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2004 Dodge Durango and Adapt Blue Ox Base Plates to Roadmaster Tow Bar
  • There is an adapter for using Blue Ox base plates, # BX1967, with Roadmaster tow bars. You would use # RM-031. Or you could skip the adapter and get matching parts by using the Roadmaster base plates, # 52273-1 that you have referenced. In addition to the base plates and tow bar you will also need lighting. I recommend the bulb and socket kit, # RM-155, because you will not have to cut into the vehicle wiring for installation. You will also need safety cables like # RM-643. The...

  • Can 2000 Dodge Durango with 5.9 Liter be Flat Towed
  • I did some checking on your 2000 Dodge Durango and found that it is flat towable. If it's a 4 wheel drive model it's good to go as long as you follow the guidelines in the manual, if it's a 2 wheel drive you'll need to use a driveshaft disconnect. For a base plate kit you'd then want the part # 246-5. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2000 Dodge Durango
  • If a vehicle owner's manual says that it cannot be flat towed this usually just means that it cannot be towed in stock form and may require some modifications before it can be towed, such as addition of a transmission lube pump or a driveline disconnect kit. 2WD versions often need a driveline disconnect or must use a tow dolly like # RM-2000-1. I checked with Roadmaster and they show the vehicle can be flat towed. However, I could not find a complete Dodge owner's manual online so I suggest...
