Complete Roadmaster Flat Towing Set Up For 2022 Chevy Spark LT w/ Manual Transmission  


This question has been asked and answered a couple of different ways, but I liked the way Dave L. answered it for a 2017 Spark in his comments to a different question. Ive researched the parts he recommended and they all appear to be compatible with the 2022 LT Spark. My goal is an idiot-proof hookup and meets all legal towing requirements. Id like to confirm that the following will work. Base Plate: Roadmaster RM-523202-5, Tow Bar: Roadmaster RM-520, Wiring: Roadmaster RM26FR with Roadmaster RM-766 disconnect, Braking system: Roadmaster RM-8700 and Safety cables: Curt C80136. Did I miss anything and/or are there better solutions?


Expert Reply:

Those parts will indeed fit your 2022 Chevy Spark LT with manual transmission, but there is one change I highly recommend, which is a tow bar different than the Falcon 2 # RM-520. The reason for that is the Falcon 2 can bind and is difficult to use without an added tool, the RoadMaster Release Tool # RM-066. It will be much, much simpler for you to disconnect a non-binding tow bar with quick-release latches, the Falcon All-Terrain.

The All-Terrain also has guides for the wiring so the other change needed is going from a coiled cord to a straight cord for the wiring, and also the InvisiBrake system requires the use of a Stop Light Switch in order to ensure the braking system activates properly when the brakes are pressed. So, here are all the parts you need for your 2022 Spark, which are nearly identical to what you listed, with only three changes (the tow bar, wiring cord, and added Stop Light Switch):

- Base Plate Kit: Roadmaster Direct-Connect Base Plate Kit # RM-523202-5

- Tow Bar: Roadmaster Falcon All Terrain, Non-Binding Tow Bar # RM-522

- Safety Chains: Curt Single Hook, Coiled Safety Cables # C80136

- Wiring Kit: Roadmaster Universal Wiring Kit with Smart Diodes # RO94FR & Straight Cord Kit # RM-98146-7

- Roadmaster Automatic Battery Disconnect # RM-766

- Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751480

- Supplemental Braking System: Roadmaster InvisiBrake Supplemental Braking System # RM-8700
