What year Jeep ?
I am using a Cool Tech harness in my 2012 JK. Very easy to wire it with this, you just plug in between the existing plugs for the left tail lights and run the wiring to the front. I was able to run mine through the frame.

That kit works for 2007-2013 Wranglers.

Check out towmate wireless lights . Never have to wire another car.

I also used the cooltech wiring harness. 2007 JK. Simple install. Took all of 10 minutes at the rear tail light fixture. .

I have a 2000 Wanderlodge 43ft Lxi Millennium Edition with a Brakesmart Brake Controller. I have no manuals and cannot find any on line. I believe the company is out of business. Does anybody have an owners manual or an installation manual for the Brakesmart Brake Controller?
Thanks,
Randy B

We recently bought a 2011 Mini Clubman S to tow behind our 1991 SP36. Just finished collecting all of the parts we should need to turn it into a toad. Found a barely used Roadmaster Falcon All-Terrain tow bar, then ordered the car-side assembly to match it. Have yet to install the parts onto the Mini, but don't figure it should take more than a day or two with wiring, etc.

No clue as to whether this manual applies to your brake controller or not but I found this “cached” copy of a BrakeSmart Manual on-line:

I have an 05' Range Rover and purchased a Roadmaster MX base plate I'm to install tomorrow and/or Sunday, a Falcon 2 towbar and a RVIbrake2 auxillary braking system. Not excited about messing with the rumored finicky wiring on the Range so I purchased and am waiting to receive a Tow Mate wireless RV package. Hopefully, that's all I'll need!

Heading back to Florida on the 16th but will be spending a little time in Oconee, GA and Orange Beach, AL before I get there. Will probably stay in a campground near Ormond Beach.
