Lighting Options for 2016 Lincoln MKX that Is Flat-Towed Behind Motorhome


I have just purchased a 2016 Lincoln MKX. I need to find a solution for wiring the tail lights, turn signals and brake lights to the coach umbilical cord?

It sounds like you need a flat-towing wiring harness to allow your motorhome to control the lights on the towed MKX. There are several options for flat-towing lighting and these vary in cost, complexity of installation and in how permanent that installation is.

With a brand new vehicle like your MKX you can consider a set of magnetic lights like # TLL21RK, which uses a 4-pole flat type connector. This kind of lighting kit means you do not have to cut into the brand new car's wiring or make any permanent modifications. You might want to add Magnetic Tow Light Partners # TLP01.

You may be interested in reviewing the linked article on flat towing, which covers all of the components needed for safe and legal vehicle towing. These include a tow bar, safety cables, base plates, a braking system, a high/low hitch adapter and of course wiring.

Always check your car's owner's manual for information related to preparing it for flat towing behind a motorhome.
