By law, a towed vehicle's turn signals, running lights and brake lights must mimic the motorhome's.
There are three ways to accomplish that:
1. A system of diodes;
2. Installing new taillights in the towed vehicle using either an incandescent or LED bulb and socket kit; or
3. Magnetic tow lights
Each method has its advantages. Whichever one you choose, ROADMASTER has a kit with all the necessary components, and step-by-step instructions.
Universal Wiring Kit 154
Universal Wiring Kit
This kit uses a system of diodes to connect your towed vehicle's turn signals, running lights and brake signals to your motorhome's. Diodes prevent electrical feedback and protect both vehicles' electrical systems. The kit comes complete with:
154 Universal Wiring Kit with four Hy-Power Diodes
• four Hy-Power diodes;
• a 27-foot length of four-wire electrical cord with 4-way flat connectors;
• three feet of split wire loom;
• a six-foot power cord with 4-way flat connectors (connects electricity between the two vehicles);
• a ring terminal;
• cable ties; and
• wire connector
152 Economy Wiring Kit — does not include molded four-way plugs or six-foot cord
Vehicle Wiring Kit 15267
'All-in-one' Towed Vehicle Wiring Kits
These kits are for the most popular towing combinations. They include everything in the 154 above, plus a Flexo-Coil power cord, electrical socket and mounting bracket.
15247 For 4-to-7 wire towing combos
15267 For 6-to-7 wire towing combos
Bulb and Socket Wiring Kits
A major advantage of a bulb and socket kit is that it bypasses the towed vehicle's electrical system, which eliminates the concern of interacting with any vehicle electronics. Wiring is routed underneath the car, to a socket mounted to the grille or fascia. Since the towed vehicle' electrical system is bypassed, this kit eliminates the concern of voiding the vehicle manufacturer's warranty. We offer two different bulb and socket kits to meet your needs.
Note: as with all kits of this type, the towed vehicle's taillights must have room for an extra socket and bulb inside the lens housing.
LED Bulb and Socket Kit 152-LED
LED Bulb and Socket Kit
LEDs have significant safety and appearance advantages over incandescent bulbs - they're brighter, they activate faster and they last longer. Another advantage is that LEDs do not generate significant heat, so there's no danger of melting the taillight lens.
This complete kit contains a 27-foot wiring harness, butt connectors, two LED bulbs, two sockets, zip ties, ring terminals, split loom and installation instructions.
