Pushed the button too soon. I've bought a lot of stuff from etrailer. Fair prices, quick shipping and great customer service. Found I've been doing a lot of business with them, amazon, and superbrightleds.com lol. . Im wondering when I'll be done. Seems like one thing after another!

Hi yesterday I installed my base plate brackets and made up a tow harness here is some pics if your interested on the safety cables I don't like the rings they come with so I bolt the cables up this way there is less chance for them to rattle when driving
This took me about 4 hrs to install everything Click image for larger version

Mr. Volk, I just bought a 2014 Silverado 4X4 and initially I got worried I had bought something that could not be flat towed but luckily after looking at this post I saw the hidden "N" and saw how to get it into neutral. My problem now is figuring out how to disconnect the negative side of the battery as the towing directions tell me I have to do. I got a quick disconnect that has a lever but it is too big to put on the battery. Can I ask what you do when towing your Silverado? Thanks

I installed the roadmaster base plate on my 2014 gmc. There is a lot to take off on this year model. There are a lot of good videos on utube to give you an idea of what you are getting into. My last truck was a 2011 chev. and was very simple to work on. also no battery disconnect and you could take the key out of it.

On mine I also tried a battery disconnect but I was happy how it fit in so I just take a 10mm socket with a few turns and you can remove the cable very easy and there's no chance of it arcing

ID:	98297[/ATTACH]I made the following switch work. Blue sea switch, negative cable, flat strip of copper and a lead lug to attach to the switch, 2 bar clamps to attach to brace on truck. I had this on my 2014 chev and moved it to my 2015 GMC in about 5 minutes.
