How To Power the Tail Lights On a Vehicle Using a Tow Dollly


What is the best way to connect turn signals and brake lights when towing on a tow dolly. Is there an electrical kit that I can connect directly to my Rav4s lights? Tow dolly has hydraulic brakes. Thanks,


Expert Reply:

If the tow dolly does not have tail lights then you will indeed need to use those on your RAV4. In order to do this I recommend using the Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit part # RM-154. The Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit will splice into the circuits behind your tail lights but this is your best option really as they don't make any plug-in kits for this. If you don't want to splice into your tail lights then your only other option would be a set of magnetic tail lights like the Pilot Magnetic Tow Lights part # NV-5164 which are wireless.

If you only have a 7-way on your tow vehicle then you will also need the Adapter 7 Pole to 4 Pole with Tester and Cover part # 47345 to use the Hy-Power Diode Wiring Kit.
