Thanks for getting it here so fast, as usual your communication and customer service is second to none.

The overall installation was good. The only complaints I have is that I wish there had been better communication overall and as to the expectation of the finished job in that a person traveling to your location needs to either reserve another night at hotel or not. Also, I was told that everything had been hooked up especially with the details of wiring going to motorhome. I had bought all the connections that went to motorhome with me. It wasn't because I had to change out the electrical connection because the one on the line going to motorhome was not the same as connection installed on the auto so I had to change that out upon attempting to connect for the first time. After the corrections I made, the overall installation is good.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


2019 Ford Fusion Energi. A lot more trimming required on the facia than noted in the instructions, but I'll chalk that up to running changes I suppose. I used a combination of a Sawzall with a fine blade and a Dremel tool, both worked well. In the end, it took me about 8 hours (over two days) to install, and had it's challenges. I had to do some pulling and tweaking to get holes to line up, and the already mentioned extensive trimming of the facia. Overall well designed product, and of course etrailer was excellent in shipping.

Side note, adaptive cruise control is not affected when the drawbars are removed. With the bars in and the towbar mounted (it's a Stowmaster car mounted bar) the cruise control works just fine as an old fashioned CC, the adaptive part just doesn't work (it won't slow down for you when a slow car is in front, because it can't see around the tow bar). Basically perfect and what I was hoping would happen.

Super-cool. It's been a year. I installed it myself and it was way less of a task than I expected. The fitment of this was incredibly spot on (no "tweaking" or drilling). Performance wise . . . it does what you expect. You insert the removable "arms", clip in onto your tow bar, and when you get to your destination the vehicle is still attached to your tow bar. Quality product.

Had Base Plate installed today, shop gave me 2.5 hr labor time. I returned just under 2hrs and they were backing my car out the shop. They parked it facing me. I told the Mechanic "That was quick" He said that's because it wouldn't fit. I was disappointed and asked what do I owe you for your labor> He laughed out loud and said it on there, but hard to see. I was so surprised and pleased you have to just about get down on your knees and bend down to see it. took me about 8 min to install everything and connect it to the Tow vehicle. I'm very pleased with it.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


I ordered this base plate to be installed on our 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited to allow it to be used with a Roadmaster Tow Bar that we purchased originally in early 2000 to tow our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Yes, 20 years later we are back into RVing and wanted to tow our 2020 Jeep behind our new Jayco Seneca Super-C motorhome. The only difference between 2000 and 2020 is the fact that we needed a brake activation system for our 2020 setup, something that wasn’t required in 2000. etrailer also sold us the Roadmaster Invisi Brake operating system which we had our local welding fabricator (also RV hitch installation expert) instal. Everything works perfectly and safely. Thank you etrailer!


Comments
Excellent! We have towed the Grand Cherokee with it for over 17,000 miles since installation, with no operational issues. From NW MT to west coast of WA, to Rockport, TX, to Duluth, MN and back in three separate trips.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


I installed this kit on my 2015 Honda Fit. The instructions are very good, however, there are a couple of "snags" to watch out for. You might have to enlarge the holes on the blind hole part of the bumper installation in order to get all of the mounting bolts to align. The other recommendation I have is NOT to use the Loctite "red" thread compound on the blind hole bolts where you cannot get a wrench on the inside. The Loctite will dry too fast and cause issues tightening the bolts on those areas. They have lock washers anyways and you can use the Loctite on the bolts you can get a wrench on the backing nut mounts. I have been towing for months now and I am very happy with it, especially the crossbar style. You will have to purchase the crossbar separately. It's more weight and a little clunky compared to the direct attachment but it allows you to disconnect in some tough situations by pulling the crossbar off while one arm of the tow hitch is still attached. I use an Falcon All Terrain tow bar so I can release the tow arms in uneven conditions. And I have encountered all types of uneven ground, it really makes disconnect of the TOAD very easy.

This tow bracket base was a little tough for an old senior but very straight forward install. Everything went as the instructions said. The product is very well built and looks good where it comes through the front bumper cover. As usual the customer service and fast shipping from etrailer is exceptional.
I have had many purchases here and it's always great. I give etrailer itself 5 stars as well as the products.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


The Jeep project went very well everything fit great and worked well. I really love Roadmaster products and quality and your company is the best place to purchase them. I sold the Jeep and replaced it with a new 2019 Chevy Equinox 2.0 L AWD and just purchased and installed the following items from you and installed them, RM-156-25 & RM-156-75 Battery Charge Line Kit, RM-146-7 Flex Coil Kit, RM-523193-4 EZ4 Plate Kit, RM-88333 Custom Seat Adapter, RM-751489 Stop Light Switch Kit and a RM-98160 Second Vehicle Brake Kit w/brakeaway. All these parts were in stock and arrived quickly and normal with you people, I really enjoy the o-line vidios as I do all my own installs. Thank you so much for your great service.
I will attach pictures of my install, you will see how I was able to fab a bracket and attach it to the existing mount on the base plate to mount the brakeaway switch and the air connection for the brake system.
I also fabricated a tail light bar as I didn't want to use mag-lights or splice into the factory lights and bulbs installed into the lights would not work as the factory brake lights will come on when the brake system is applyed and the turn siginals would not be visable.
Thanks for all you do, I would and do recommend you people to everyone who needs your products. Rob

Everything is working great, I installed a base plate kit, battery charging kit, stop light switch kit, second vehicle air brake kit w brakeaway and seat adapter on our 2019 Chevy Equinox and towed it about 14000 miles behind our motor home this past year and everything worked perfect not a problem with any product. These are great products, everything fit perfectly and performed perfectly. Thank you for great service and great products. Rob

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Great product for my 2014 Wrangler. Good materials, solid attachment to vehicle, and looks good. The e trailer installation video was great for assisting installation. Made the install much quicker and easier. The most difficult procedure for me was disconnecting the wiring harness on the back of the bumper. An old tack puller (or tool of similar design) would have been great for leveraging the pins out of their holes. Cutting the air dam was a slow process to ensure I didn't cut too much. A paper template to mark where to cut the air dam would make this process much simpler. Again, I can't emphasize enough how great the installation video was for making the steps easier.

This item works great. Have towed about 4500 miles using it. I couldnt be happier with the results.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


etrailer service was great. Received my Roadmaster base plate in 3 days. The directions from Roadmaster were fair, but etrailer's video was excellent. I had trouble mounting my base plate as the space between the two baseplate ends were too tight. I needed to use a floor jack and bottle jack to get it on. Once it was in position everything went together fine. I trimmed the Jeep' air dam differently keeping the ends that Roadmaster wants you to cut off. I think it looks better. I also had to modify the center cut in the air dam to accommodate the breakaway switch I have.

Review from a similar EZ4 Base Plate in Base Plates


Installation took about 4 hrs for our 2018 Sonic RS. My wife called out the instructions and kept track of all the screws and their locations. I did the mechanics work. Some expertise is needed since the lower flange of the internal bumper had to be cut-off the entire width. A cut-off wheel does this job (great fireworks). And we used a roto-zip type tool to cut away openings in the plastic grill as needed. Lost my confidence a few times, but the customer support folks got me back on-track.

Don't forget the Locktite on bolt threads and use torque wrench for mounting bolts.

After a year, still tows great and held snug on some pretty rough highways.

Towing Connections DON'T HAVE TO BE UGLY! (see photo)

I bought a new 2019 4x4 Jeep Cherokee Limited with the Active Drive II transmission. It included the Technology Group option with Adaptive Cruise Control, etc. I then bought the corresponding Roadmaster baseplate (521452-4) to couple with our old Falcon All-Terrain towbar from a previous Jeep.

I installed the new baseplate myself but it took a lot longer than the quoted two hours. This was partially because I was new at it. But mostly it was because the baseplate parts didn't all fit correctly: the driver-side rear brace was too wide, and two of the holes on the passenger side of the main receiver brace were off by half the width of the holes. These problems took special, expensive tools to correct because the parts are made from 1/4" hard steel. The other major factor was that much of the Roadmaster's instructions were not correct for my Cherokee even though it was the same model and year. There were several instructions that were no longer correct as well as having steps for removing parts that didn't need to be removed. A lot of time was wasted trying to sort through the instructions. Overall, between trying to reach Roadmaster's tech support, trying to find a source for the recommended tools, and doing the actual work per Roadmaster's instructions, days were wasted.

From Roadmaster, the baseplate kit arrived with the paint chipped/scraped off in many places such that the parts were already starting to rust. To make it so the paint on the towbar assemblies – including the old, rusty towbar – would hold up better, I rounded all the sharp corners/edges ... especially those that regularly strike each other when getting ready to tow. I then primed and repainted the parts.

After that, I focused on retaining the looks of the Cherokee's front end. For expediency, a typical towbar installer will attach all the connection components such that they stick out in front of the fascia. That's quick and easy but the results look pretty ugly. Instead, I spent some time – and about $10 on the following – to make the installation look professional (see photo).

CAPS for the receiver arms were created to protect them. (The insides of the arms were already rusting even without ever towing ... or even driving in the rain.) I made the caps from 1-1/4 PVC threaded plugs (Lowe's #51526). The threads and embossed writing on the tops were ground off with a belt sander. On what had been the threaded part of each cap, a groove was cut to hold an O-ring (A5568 size 125) so the caps fit snugly into the receiver arms.

The BREAKAWAY SWITCH was mounted behind the grill on a wooden block attached to the Main Receiver Brace's crossbar; that allowed it to face out yet stay hidden. A trim ring from a bathroom-sink-drain assembly was painted black after the threaded part was notched a little to accommodate the switch's junction box. The silver split-ring was replaced with a black (memotite) key ring.

The 6-PIN SOCKET (Roadmaster 910030-7) was mounted on the two stems that stick out from the baseplate's main receiver brace. However, I bent, angled, and shortened both stems so the socket would sit flush along the curved grill's centerline. I also drilled the holes deeper into the ends of the two stems so I could use longer (1"), #10, self-drilling screws. The screw heads were painted black.

All the WIRES were placed inside black, heat-shrink tubing and tucked out-of-sight using zip ties.

Additionally, with the hopes of keeping the paint from being chipped away while traveling, I added material to take the play out of the Quick-Disconnect parts. To prevent the crossbar's QD bases and the QD mounting brackets from hammering metal against metal, I glued four small rectangles of EPDM rubber (i.e., 45-mil (3/64") pond liner) onto the horizontal flat areas where they rest on each other. And, to further eliminate any bouncing, I slipped a thick, rubber grommet onto each of the two upper, vertical, mounting-bracket pins before I inserted their linch pins. That $3 investment significantly quieted the towbar while promising to eliminate a lot of the typical paint chipping and rusting.

(With any luck, Roadmaster will see this review and correct/improve their products accordingly.)
