Recommended Flat Towing Set Up for a 2022 Jeep Wrangler Sport  


we bought a 2022 Jeep Wrangler Sport to tow behind our 25 2022 Forester 2401B. Can you tell me all the parts I need to flat tow it? Im seeing the tow bar and the plate but what all do I need. Im looking for the complete setup...thanks


Expert Reply:

I would be happy to give you a list of parts you will need to flat tow your 2022 Jeep Wrangler Sport behind your motorhome. In addition to a tow bar and base plate kit, you will need a wiring harness and potentially a proximity sensor with diodes, a supplemental braking system, stop light switch, and a high low adapter.

Tow Bar: etrailer SD Non-Binding Tow Bar for Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plates item # e74ZR. This tow bar has a 6,000 lbs capacity and includes the required safety cables.

Base Plate Kit: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit item # RM-521453-5 which is a compatible with the standard factory bumpers. These base plates have a direct-connect connection point for quick and easy hookup as well as removable arms to preserve the factory look of your Jeep when not in use.

Tow Bar Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit item # RM-15267. This diode kit allows you to use your Jeep's tail lights and wiring system while preventing feedback from your RV. This kit will come with a 6-way socket for your Jeep as well as an adapter cable to go from the vehicle to the motorhome. Or if your Jeep has ParkSense Proximity Sensors then you will need the Roadmaster Wiring Kit with Smart Diodes for Variable Voltage LED Tail Lights item # RM47ZR and the Roadmaster 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Kit item # RM-146-7 instead.

Braking System: Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System item # RM-8700. This system offers automatic, real-time braking in your towed Jeep Wrangler Sport. The actuator box installs permanently so that you never have to remove, adjust or reactivate. The system connects to your RV and engages the Jeep's brakes when the RV brake lights illuminate. I highly recommend a system that is permanently installed in all newer vehicles being flat towed.

Charge Line: I also recommend adding the Roadmaster Battery Charge Line Kit for Towed Vehicles item # RM-156-25. This kit will ensure you do not have a dead battery when you arrive at your destination.

You will also need the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit item # RM-751490 to ensure that your supplemental braking system is properly positioned and working effectively. This kit activates your RV's monitoring system to alert you when the brakes of your towed car are being applied.

High Low Adapter: The tow bar needs to be within 3" of level. If you measure the height of the inside top of the hitch receiver tube on your RV, and the height difference is more than 3 inches above/below the base plate tab height, you'll need a high/low adapter. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains all this in more detail along with our selection of adapters.
