Video Transcript for Review of Blue Ox Coiled 6-Wire Electrical Cord - BX8862

Hi there, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Blue Ox six wire coiled electrical cord. This is a six wire extension cord that can be used for multiple towing applications, but most commonly, it is gonna be used for running power from your RV to your towed vehicle. This does include two six-way round female plugs that will mount onto your RV and your towed vehicle for a quick, easy hookup. You can see these do have these spring-closed lids that are gonna help protect your connections when you're not hooked up. And then when you do plug this in, it's going to have a locking feature on it.

So as you lower this lid, it's going to lock onto that cable, so it's gonna help prevent accidental disconnects. And so you'll lift that up, and then pull out the cable to disconnect. This cable is a coiled design, so it is going to keep your cable up off the ground, prevent it from dragging and tangling, but when you need the overall length, it will stretch out to over seven feet in length, and so it is going do a good job of providing that connection for you, even if you're taking turns and that sort of thing, it's going to move, stay up off the ground, but still give you that length that you need. This does have silicone-encased wire connections that are going to help prevent any corrosion, so it is gonna hold up well for you and last you a nice long time. And it is made here in the USA, so you can trust it's made to the high quality standards that we've come to know and trust for products that are made here in the US.

So that completes our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching..

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • What Replacement 6-Way Female to Female Power Plug do I Need for My Flat-Tow Setup?

  • 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,...

  • 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...

    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.

  • How To Make 5' 6-way Round to 4-way Flat Wiring Adapter
    I would be happy to help you make a 5' long 6-way round to 4-way flat adapter, but the longest premade adapter offered in this combination is the Hopkins Endurance Flex Trailer Connector Adapter w/ LED Circuit Tester - 6-Pole to 4-Pole # HM47320 which is only 5" long. 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

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...

  • 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. You may care to start with the linked article on flat towing...

    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...
