How Does the Blue Ox Patriot 3 Activate Brake Lights On 2020 Chevy Equinox With Diodes


If the Blue Ox or the Roadmaster Diode wiring kit is installed on a vehicle that require the ignition switch be in the ACC position as with a 2020 Chev Equinox AWD, what happens to the towed vehicle stop lights if it has a Patriot 3 Brake system installed. Will the vehicles power to the stop lights control them over the RV power through the diodes and will any harm be done?


Expert Reply:

The Blue Ox Patriot 3 Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System part # BRK2019 does not tie into the stop light circuit on the vehicle, it would operate independently of the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit part # RM-15267 (Premier Models Only). The diodes would prevent both the towed vehicle and tow vehicle from both sending power to the tail lights on the towed vehicle.
