How to Install the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar on a 2014 Ford Focus

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Ford Focus, we're going to be taking a look at the Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part number RM-520. So here's what our tow bar looks like. Now this is going to allow us to safely tow our Focus behind our motor home, and get down the road and start our adventure. So, if you're looking for a tow bar that has the ability to store on your RV, you're not having to take it on and off, but also the extremely easy and simple to hook up, the Falcon 2 is going to be a great option for you.It's going to slide into the receiver hitch on our motor home, and we're not going to have to worry about a ball mount. Now on our application, we are using a high-low adapter, which is not included. Our tow bar is designed to work with two inch by two inch receiver tube openings, and has a capacity of 6,000 pounds.Now on the vehicle side, it's just going to be a simple quick hookup to our base plate, and it's going to work with all Roadmaster base plates as well as some Blue Ox base plates with an adapter that is sold separately.

Our tow bar's going to feature telescoping arms, which is going to give us a really large hookup radius, which means it's going to be a lot easier to hook up to our vehicle without having to be directly in line right behind our motor home.Do allow for better maneuverability and easier towing, and the stainless steel construction of the inner arm allows for smooth operation. There is a self-lubricating nylon bushing that's in between the outer and inner arm, allowing the arms to move freely and provide a long-lasting system. Now with the arm in this position, it is locked and ready to tow, but if we come back to this button right here, and push down, it'll unlock it and allow us to store it.Now to stow the tow bar, you just simply push the arms together and we can lift them up, and that nut on the back here is going to line up with this lever with the hole in the middle. It's going to lock it into place, and then we simply turn it to one side or the other, and it'll store right on the back of our motor home. Our tow bar is going to feature a nice black power coat finish, which is going to keep it looking nice and lasting a long time.The length of our tow bar with the arms collapsed, from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the mounting location in the vehicle, is going to be right about 41.75 inches long.

And with the arm fully extended, it's going to be a total of 53 inches long. With everything hooked up right here, we're ready to hit the road.To begin your installation, you're going to take your tow bar, and we're going to slide it into the receiver on our motor home. We're going to line up the pin hole on the receiver, and then we can take the included pin and clip and secure it.Now if we come to the back section of our tow bar here, we're going to have a little lever. If we pull back on that lever, we can swing the arms down, and we're going to spread them open and we can take the open end here, and attach it to our base plate. We're just going to line it up, and we're going to take our pins, going through, and locking everything down.

We're going to do that for the other side as well.And that's all it's going to take to hook up our tow bar, but before we hit the road, you want to make sure that you put in your electrical, your safety cables, and your breakaway switch for your braking system. And that'll finish up your look at the Falcon 2 Tow Bar, part number RM-520 on our 2014 Ford Focus.
