Wiring Kit to Flat Tow a 2012 Fiat 500 Sport Behind a 2010 Newmar Baystar


What will I need to correctly wire my new Fiat 500 Sport? Will it be a separate or combined issue. Will be towed behind a 2010 Newmar Baystar.


Expert Reply:

There are a few options for wiring your 2012 Fiat 500 Sport to flat tow behind the motor home. First, if you will not be towing the vehicle very often, I recommend a magnetic kit, # RM-2120.

The next two options are more permanent for frequent flat towing. The first option is a diode kit, # 154-792-118158. The Fiat does have a separate system (turn signal independent of brake lights) so extra diodes are needed which are included with the kit. With this system, you will need to splice into the vehicle wiring like in the video I have linked as an example.

The last option does not require cutting into the vehicle wiring, but does require drilling into the tail light housing to mount the bulbs in kit # RM-155. After the bulbs are mounted and tied into the included 4-Way, you will just need to plug the other 4-Way into the motor home.

I have included a link to an FAQ article that covers the various lighting options for you.
