Recommendation For Flat Towing 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited And Trailer Connector For Jeep


I was going to purchase HM56200 for towing a Jeep behind our RV but I want to add wiring for towing a trailer behind my jeep. Will the HM41365 work with the HM56200 or is there another item I should purchase?


Expert Reply:

The Hopkins Custom Tail Light Wiring Kit, Item # HM56200, is a confirmed fit for towing your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. With regards to towing a trailer with your Jeep, the Hopkins Plug-N-Tow Connector, Item # HM41365, is not a fit. Instead, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, Item # 118416, that is a confirmed fit for your Jeep.

You may already have these but you will need other items to flat tow your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited: base plates, a tow bar, safety cables, wiring (like Item # HM56200 above), maybe a high-low hitch adapter, and a braking system.

For your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, I recommend the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate, Item # RM-521448-4, because it is designed for your vehicle. It also has twistlock brackets that are virtually invisible and can be removed. The Roadmaster Sterling All Terrain Tow Bar, Item # RM-576, is a great choice that fits the Roadmaster EZ4 Base Plate and the safety cables are included.

You have already chosen the Hopkins Wiring Kit, Item # HM56200, for wiring and I recommend adding the Wesbar Coiled Adapter, Item # 787196, to make everything easier.

A high-low hitch adapter may also be needed to keep your tow bar level while flat towing. A "safe zone" of 3 inches above or 3 inches below level must be maintained while towing a vehicle. High-low adapters provide necessary rise or drop to get into the "safe zone". I have attached a link to our available selections.

Finally, the Stay-In-Play Braking System, Item # SM99251, is a great proportional braking system that has a convenient one time set-up. You will also need a Brake-Lite Relay Kit like Item # RM-88400 to make sure all signal lights are working together.

Before flat towing your 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited or using it to tow a trailer, check your vehicle owner's manual for suggestions and recommendations.

I have attached additional information and videos for you to checkout to help you with your towing project.
