Thought some of you who tow toads might be interested in seeing this "wireless tow light" set up. I've had it for over a year now and have traveled more than 5,000 miles with it. It is so easy to use. Just set the light bar on top of or the back of a car (magnetic) and turn the switch on and go. The sending unit is a little 2inch square box that plugs into your 5 prong plug in the rear of the MH. That's it.
It charges by plugging into your cig. lighter. Last about 17 Hours on a charge. It has been through rain, sleet and snow. Maybe not for everyone but it has worked very well for us. Bought it from a company called Tow Mate. $295.00 for sender and light bar. I hope these photos show up as I am still learning how to post photos.









Well I see after posting this the photo's still don't work so maybe a moderator can help me post them. Thanks

When posting a picture, first click on the thumb nail picture to enlarge it in the center of the page.

Copy the URL from the enlarged picture, not the thumb nail, and paste the URL in the Image URL box.

At the Tow Mate website the suction cup version is $270 and the magnet mount version is $355, so they are spendy little beasts.

Good idea though, because they can be moved easily and there is no need to worry about towing and toad vehicle interaction.
