  • What Pin Does the 12V Power Wire Get Connected to on the Blue Ox # BX8862
    If you are asking which pin you will wire the 12V power source to on wiring like the Blue Ox 6-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 6-Way, Round Plugs # BX8862 then yes, the 12V power will be wired to the center pin. The 12V power pin can be used to maintain the battery on your towed vehicle. If you have a different wiring setup other than the part that I referenced then I will need to know exactly what your setup is so that I can give you an accurate answer. I have attached a picture that...

  • Will the Blue Ox Bulb and Socket Lighting Kit Work for Flat Towing a 2005 Chevy Colorado
    Yes, the Blue Ox Bulb and Socket Tail Light Wiring Kit, # BX8869, is confirmed to fit in the taillight housing on your 2005 Chevrolet Colorado. Along with the bulb and socket kit you will need an electrical cord and connectors to go from the towed vehicle to the motorhome. Blue Ox recommends the 4-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 4-Way connectors, # BX8861 if your motorhome needs a 4-Way round connector, and the 6-Wire Coiled Electrical Cord with 6-Way round connectors, # BX8862 if your...

  • Recommended Way To Mount Blue Ox 6 Wire Round Cord Onto Vehicle's Bumper Or Hitch
    It sounds like you are looking for hardware to mount the Blue Ox 6-Wire, Coiled Electrical Cord with 6-Way, Round Plugs # BX8862 onto your vehicle. You could go to your local hardware store to find screws/bolts that will hold it to your bumper or receiver. Or a better route would be to use Curt Mounting Bracket for 4-, 5-, or 6-Pole Round Trailer Connector # C92CR which is a bracket and hardware set to install a round 6 wire plug on a hitch receiver, frame, or bumper of a vehicle.

  • Tow Bar Wiring/Lighting for a 2015 Chevy Colorado
    For the 2015 Chevy Colorado you can use the Blue Ox bulb and socket kit # BX8869. I have linked a video showing an example installation. I also recommend coiled extension kit # BX8862. Another is to use a magnetic kit such as # RM-2120 since they are not vehicle specific. This is a low cost option that you could use until such a time that other kits become available.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2009 Mini Cooper S
    There are 5 items needed when flat-towing your Mini. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for the towed vehicle, and a supplemental brake system. If your Mini is not the John Cooper model the base plates I recommend are part # BX1307. The tow bar I recommend is the Blue Ox Alpha, part # BX7380. The safety cables are included with the tow bar. For tow bar wiring I recommend part # BX8869. To connect the wiring to the motorhome we offer a couple options. You...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Connector On 2012 Ford Escape
    The replacement 7-way connector I recommend for your 2012 Escape is part # A10-7072VP. This connector just plugs into the OEM plug at the rear of your Escape. This 7-way has the spring-loaded dust cover to help protect the connector from the elements. When working with electrical connectors I recommend using dielectric grease like part # 11755. This keeps dirt and moisture out of the electrical connections and helps prevent corrosion.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda Fit Sport Automatic Behind a Motor Home
    The best place to check to see if a vehicle can be flat towed behind a motor home is the owners manual. I found one online for the 2013 Fit from Honda and it states that you can tow the vehicle behind a motor home. There are special instructions for the automatic transmission you will want to look at so be sure to check your owners manual. You will need 5 items to flat tow your fit. First you will need base plates, # BX2253. These provide a safe mounting location for a tow bar. For a compatible...

  • Parts Needed to Wire a 2007 Nissan Frontier with a 6-Way at Front to Flat Tow with RV with 7-Way
    The first thing you are going to need is a lighting kit for the 2007 Nissan Frontier to flat tow it. You can use diode kit # 154-792-118158. You could then replace the 4-Way end that will be at the front of the vehicle with # RM-910030-7 for a 6-Way if needed. The wires from the diode kit have the following functions: White is ground, Brown is running lights, yellow is left turn/brake lights, and green is right turn, brake lights. At the BACK of the 6-Way on the front of the Nissan you...

  • What Base Plates Will Fit a 2004 Saturn Vue Redline Edition
    We do have a set of base plates for the 2004 Saturn Vue Redline but the Roadmaster base plates will not fit a 2004 model. You can use the Blue Ox base plates, # BX3321. In order to use your Falcon tow bar you will have to use adapter # RM-031 that adapts the Roadmaster tow bar for use with the Blue Ox base plates. If you need safety cables, I recommend the straight cables, # RM-646, because the Falcon all terrain tow bar has cable guides on each arm. For lighting, you can use the Blue...

  • Why Are There No All-In-One Flat Towing Kits
    The reason that no one offers an all-in-one flat towing kit is that vehicles differ so much in their dimensions, weight and in the available access to the frame for securing the base plates that it would be just about impossible to design one kit that would work on most vehicles. Although we cannot offer you a one-box kit we can still help you select each of the required items to safely and legally flat tow your Jeep Wrangler.

  • How to Wire Up a Tow Vehicle that has a Separate 6-Way to Tow a Vehicle with a 4-Way Flat
    The easiest way to do what you need is to convert the signal on your RV's connector to a combined circuit and then install a 4-way on your RV like part # PK11404 in place of the 6-way. For that you would want to start with a signal converter like part # RM-732. You will need to wire up the RV trailer wiring just like the label of the converter recommends. You'll notice that the running lights aren't mentioned on the label, that's because it bypasses the converter and runs straight to the...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2015 Ford Edge Titanium Behind a Motor Home with Unified Tow Brake System
    For tow bar wiring to activate the tail lights on your 2015 Ford Edge Titanium when flat towing it behind a motor home you have a few options. But since you are using a supplemental braking system I recommend using 6 diodes. First you would need the 4 diode kit, # RM-154, and then 2 additional diodes, # RM-792. You would then wire it up like the picture I have included. This will only work if the motor home also has turn signals that are on a different bulb than the brake lights. If the...

    To flat-tow your Hyundai Elantra behind your motorhome you will need 5 items. You will need base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, lighting for the Elantra, and most states now require a supplemental brake system. If your Elantra is not a GT the Blue Ox base plates, part # BX2331 would work well. The tow bar that would also work well is the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar, part # BX7380. This tow bar is designed with a motor home mount and will work well with the BX2331 base plates. This tow bar...

  • Which Tow Bar Wiring Diode Kit is Used to Flat Tow a 2003 Chevy Tracker Behind a Motor Home
    The diode kit recommended for your 2003 Chevy Tracker is actually the 6-diode kit # 154-792-118158. Those 2 additional diodes will allow the turn signals and brake lights to be separate on the Tracker when it is being towed. When using a 4-diode kit such as # 38955 the red brake lights will function as both brake lights and turn signals which is perfectly legal if that is what you are worried about. Since you already have a 4-diode kit at the very least you will just need 2 more diodes,...

  • How To Make 5' 6-way Round to 4-way Flat Wiring Adapter

To start you will need a trailer end 6-way connector # PK11604 and 5' of # DW04923-1. The # DW04923-1 is sold in a quantity of 1' so for 5' you will need to order a quantity of 5.

Both will have 4WD high and low settings indicated by up or down arrows and both will have a neutral position.
