How to Power Blue Ox Patriot Braking System When Vehicles Negative Battery Cable Is Unhooked

Question:

I had a Blue Ox tow bar installed on my RV and will be towing a fiesta automatic, now the manual explains to shift into neutral wait for the screen to display transmission ready then remove your foot from the brake and turn the ignition to off. Then disconnect the negative battery cable. But l have a Patriot braking device that needs to be plugged in to 12volts. No voltage if the ignition is in the off position? help....

No sweat! You'll just need to install a 12-volt outlet kit, part # RM-9332. The socket would be located under the dash, so you can easily locate it to plug in the Patriot. The outlet would wire directly to the vehicle's battery. Each time you stop during the day, you'll want to start the motor of the Fiesta for a few minutes to ensure the battery remains charged. The installation procedure is pretty simple as you can see in the video I've linked for you.
