Required Wiring To Flat Tow 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited With Brake Buddy 2 Braking System


2009 Wrangler Unlimited. Has towing package. What wiring do I need to hook it up to my motorhome? I have a brake buddy 2.


Expert Reply:

There is two different sets of wiring used to hook your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to your Motorhome. This will be the wiring for your braking system and wiring for your lights and turn signals.

The Brake Buddy 2 or the newer Brake Buddy Classic 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39494 will include all necessary wiring for the install and using, but if you need the replacement wiring you can use Replacement Breakaway System # HM39340, Replacement Dash Mount Connector # HM39342 and Replacement Easy-Pull Power Cord # HM39341.

If you are looking for wiring for lights and turn signals I recommend the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267 if you tow bar does not have channels for the harness to run through, or Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-152-98146-7 if your tow bar does have the channels.

It is required to disconnect the battery of your Jeep when flat towing per the owner's manual. You can either manually disconnect the battery each time or use the Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect # RM-766.

To complete your flat tow setup you will need base plates, a tow bar, and safety cables. If you are missing any of these products let me know and I would be happy to recommend the best parts for you.

It is a good idea to check the flat towing section of your owner's manual for any requirements or steps needed to flat tow your vehicle.

I included videos of all of the products mentioned being installed on a Jeep Wrangler for you to take a look at.
