Mounting Base Plates

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any experience installing base plates on 2001 Jetta, and setting up lights and such? Also if you did what tow bar you used or recommend. I would like a tow bar that stays with the motorhome. (2000 Winnnebago Journey 36L DP )

Thanks in advance

As stated, you will need both a base plate and a tow bar. Many types and sizes of tow bars to choose from, but the base plate must be sized for the Jetta.

I have only used Roadmaster on the 4 autos that I have installed base plates/adapters, but the instructions were very complete with step by step and color pictures. Usually took 3 to 4 hours. Standard end wrenches(some are metric now), no air tools, but you do need a torque wrench to be sure that the bolts are tighten correctly. Wiring is another issue. Takes much longer. Every vehicle is different on how to route wires. Suggest that you use the double diodes from Roadmaster. Also, add the Bright Lite adapter. All diagrams are on the web site that Brett gave you for Roadmaster.

Only once did I have to call their customer service, excellent response.
