Wiring a 1993 Ford Ranger to Flat Tow Behind RV  


I am looking for the necessary wiring to be able to tow my 1993 Ford Ranger behind my RV. Of course, I need my brake lights and turn signals to work. Thanks

If you're looking for the easiest solution, a magnetic mount lamp kit like part # RM-2120 would be a good choice. The kit is easy to install and very easy to use. For a more permanent solution, a diode kit like part # RM-154 would be the way to go.

The magnetic mount lamp system would allow the taillights used when flat towing to remain completely independent of the wiring system of your Ranger. However, running the wires can be time consuming. The diode kit would be more complicated to install, but once it's installed, you'd simply plug your tow vehicle into the Ranger and you'd be ready to go.
