  • What Type of Adapter is Needed to Connect Blue Ox Tow Bar with Curt Base Plates?
    If your Chevrolet Equinox has a Curt # C28FR (70108) base plate kit you can install a Blue Ox tow bar without an adapter as they are compatible. Blue Ox does not recommend using their tow bars beyond 10 years for full-timers. You should probably get it in to an authorized service center for inspection. If you decide on a new tow bar, I have provided you a link of our available tow bars. Or you can just email me back with the features you would like.

  • Wiring For Flat Towing 2022 Chevy Equinox LT
    Your 2022 Chevy Equinox LT requires flat tow wiring with smart diodes because your Chevy's tail lights have variable voltage, which means there is just one wire that sends different voltage to the lights based on if the brake lights or turn signals are on. The smart diodes regulate that voltage to ensure the correct signal is received. The right kit is going to depend on if your Equinox has LED or incandescent tail lights: - LED: Roadmaster Smart Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Wiring Kit for Variable...

  • Base Plate Kit to Use with Blue Ox Tow Bar and 2021 Chevy Equinox
    The Curt base plate kits are compatible with Blue Ox tow bars so you could use the # C28FR with your Blue Ox tow bar. For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from...

  • Compatibility of Curt C28FR Base Plate With Blue Ox Tow Bar on 2019 Chevy Equinox
    It sure will. The Curt # C28FR Base Plate Kit is compatible with Blue Ox or Curt base plates (also with Roadmaster and Demco if the correct adapter is used). You'll also need safety cables like # RM-643, a wiring solution like # RM26FR unless its a Premier model, in which case you'd need # RM-15267 and a supplemetal braking system like the Roadmaster # RM-8700 Invisibrake and a # RM-751489 stop light switch. If the installed height of the base plate is more than 3 inches higher or lower...

  • Are Curt Base Plates on 2018 Chevy Equinox Compatible With Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar
    I reached out to Curt, who said you can use the Curt Custom Base Plate Kit # C28FR with your 2018 Chevy Equinox and the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar # RM-520 so long as you use an adapter designed for Blue Ox base plates. So what you need is the Roadmaster Tow Bar to Blue Ox Brackets Adapter # RM-031. As far as the wiring kits on your '18 Equinox (excluding Premier) the LED and standard bulb and socket kits, which are the Roadmaster Tail Light Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles - LED Bulb and...

  • Do You Need to Run a 2021, 2022 or 2023 Chevrolet Equinox at Certain Times When Flat Towing
    Yes, the engine on your Chevrolet Equinox will need to be run at times when flat towing. The easiest way to determine what needs to be done to flat tow your Equinox is to consult your owners manual. I went ahead and took a look at the owners manual for both the 2021 and 2022 Chevrolet Equinox. For either model year, you will need to run the vehicle at the beginning of each day and at each RV fuel stop for about 5 minutes. This will ensure proper lubrication of the transmission components. I...

  • Flat Towing Equipment Recommendations for 2019 Chevy Equinox
    According to the owner's manual, FWD Equinox models with the 1.5 L gas, 2.0L gas, and 1.6L diesel engine and AWD 2.0L gas and 1.6L diesel engines are capable of being flat towed. All other models would need to be towed on a trailer. To flat tow the vehicle, you'll need a tow bar, safety cables, base plates, a wiring harness so that the taillights on the Equinox work in tandem with those on the motorhome, a supplemental braking system and possibly a high/low adapter. For a base plate,...
