Flat Tow Baseplate, Tow Bar, Wiring and Braking System For Needed For a 2022 Jeep Wrangler  


I need to set up my 2022 Jeep Wrangler JL for flat towing. Can you tell me what all parts I need for this? I will be towing it with a Forest River Forester Class C Motorhome.


Expert Reply:

I recommend the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-521453-5 that works with either the factory plastic or steel bumpers. This will allow you to remove the arms when not flat towing for a clean look.

The Roadmaster Nighthawk All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-676 is great to use as the bars will not bind up making it easier to disconnect the Jeep. And with lights in the bars it makes things easier when you are hooking up or disconnecting in the dark. The RoadMaster Nighthawk All Terrain Towing Combo Kit # RM-9284-2 includes storage bags for the bars and couplers. It also contains the wiring and diodes needed to integrate your tail lights on the Jeep to work with the Motorhome lights. If your Jeep came with Park Sense you will need the Roadmaster Wiring Kit with Smart Diodes for Variable Voltage LED Tail Lights # RM47ZR to work properly with your tail lights.

The Demco Stay-IN-Play DUO Supplemental Braking System # DM86VR will install under the hood and dash on your Jeep so that when you are ready to flat tow all you have to do is flip a switch. I prefer this system as it is one of the few that looks for both the tail lights to activate and senses the inertia of the motorhome braking before applying the brakes. This helps prevent damage to your Jeep brakes if you cover the brakes going down a hill or are coasting to a stop.

You may need a Roadmaster High-Low Adapter like the # RM-048-4 to level your tow bars. The bars should be within 3" of level from your motorhome to the front of the Jeep. You will need to measure the difference between the center of your receiver and the Roadmaster arms to find out if you need an adapter. Once you have the difference I can help you find the correct adapter.
