How to Install the RoadMaster Coiled Safety Cables on a 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee


Shane: Hi I'm Shane with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the Road master 68 inch coiled safety cables for your flat tow set up on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.This is going to be one of the five main components for a flat tow set up. These are going to be a secondary safety device in case your tow bar fails. The other four are going to be your tow bar, which is going to give you that solid connection point between your RV and your base plate on your towed vehicle or on your Jeep Grand Cherokee.Your wiring, which is going to allow your Jeep Grand Cherokee to receive light functions from your RV, so not only are you safe while you're flat towing your vehicle, but other drivers are safe because they're going to know what you're doing, whether you're braking, making a turn or driving at night.Braking system, which is going to be required in any vehicle that is flat towed. It's going to mount inside the vehicle and it's going to allow the Jeep Grand Cherokee to not only slow but stop itself so we're not overly 00:00:53 relying on the RV to slow and stop both vehicles.And then your base plate. Your base plate is going to attach to the chassis of the vehicle and it's going to give you a solid connection point for your tow bar.Now to go over a few more finer details on our safety cables.

Again these are going to be 68 or these are going to spread out to up 68 inches. We're going to have a quick link at one end. You can lock it right onto your tow bar or I'm sorry your hitch on your RV.Lock it into place. And you can just leave them connected. Once you disconnect this side from your vehicle, you hook it on to the other side and you can leave them connected on your RV if you want to.What we see is a lot of times because they're steel cables, if they're not coated they tend to rust.

The good thing about these, these are going to have a nice thick vinyl coating. So we're not going to have to worry about the weather corroding that steel cable over time.It's going to hold up really, really well. On this end, this is going to make an easy quick connection and disconnection from our base plate on our towed vehicle. We're going to have a locking tab here for a hook. It's going to be spring loaded.So we simply you know stick it over and it's going to lock into place right onto our safety chain loops.

One thing I do want to mention is when ordering safety cables you want to make sure that you're going to have enough room or you have enough length between your base plate and between the hitch on your RV.Depending on which tow bar you have some of them the arms may extend out a little bit longer. So you just want to make sure your cables are going to be long enough so that when you're turning corners and stuff like that you're not overstretching this cable.Again I'm Shane with etrailer.com. I hope this video's helped you whether you're still deciding or installing the Road master 68 inch safety cables on your 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
