Recommended Roadmaster Baseplate For A 2020 Ford F-150 With A Blue Ox Tow Bar


Roadmaster base plate be used with my Blue Ox tow bar?


Helpful Expert Reply:

For your 2020 Ford F-150 you'll need the Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-524431-5, that you were already looking at, and to make it compatible with your Blue Ox tow bar you'll need the Universal Tow Bar Adapter for Roadmaster Direct-Connect Baseplate # RM62ZR.

This adapter will replace the direct-connect arms in your baseplate to allow you to easily connect to your Blue Ox tow bar.

If you haven't already purchased the rest of your flat towing components then I have the following recommendations for you:

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit # RM-15267. This diode kit will transfer your motorhome's brake and turn signals through your F-150's tail lights.

Since you have combined wiring you'll also need the Roadmaster Brake-Lite Relay Kit for Towed Vehicles # RM-88400 to prevent the brake signal from overriding the turn signals. The brake light switch wire this will need to tap into is purple/white.

Braking System: Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System # HM39524. This braking system comes with a remote that will easily let you see when the brakes are being activated in your F-150 as well as let you adjust the brake settings all from your motorhome. The included charge line kit will help prevent your vehicle's battery from draining as well.

Safety Cables: RoadMaster 68" Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # RM-643. The coiled design of these cables will help keep them up off the ground, preventing any damage.
