Everything Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Ford F-150


Im looking for a list of everything needed to flat tow a 2018 Ford Lariat with push button start. Towing behind 2017 Ford F53 coach with hydraulic brakes. I want a proportional brake system that is permanent and a charge line for the toad. Thanks!


Expert Reply:

For a proportional permanent install supplemental braking system for your 2018 Ford F-150 the Demco SBS DUO part # SM99251 would be an excellent option. You will also need the brake light relay part # RM-88400 as well.

For a base plate kit you'd want the pat # RM-524431-5 which fits your truck and is easy to use.

In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. The most popular compatible tow bar is the Falcon All Terrain, # RM-522. This has non-binding arms which makes the setup very easy to connect/disconnect.

For lighting/safety cables, locks, and covers for the tow bar we have the Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain kit part # RM-9243-1 which comes with all of that as one part number. The diode kit that comes with this allows you to splice into the taillight wiring so that your RV controls the vehicle taillights and does not require drilling into the taillight housings. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

Then for a charge line kit you'd need the part # RM-156-25.
