Recommended Flat Towing Wiring Harness for a 2016 Jeep Patriot  


Thank you. This is very helpful. My Patriot has a 5 speed manual transmission. So I think the only other thing I need to know is, what wiring harness do I need? Thanks again.

Happy to help! The best wiring harness to flat tow your 2016 Jeep Patriot is going to be the Roadmaster Diode 7-Wire to 6-Wire Flexo-Coil Wiring Kit item # RM-15267. This kit splices a set of diodes into your taillight wiring so that your motorhome can activate them while you are towing your Jeep. This kit also includes the cord that will connect to your motorhome home's 7-way.

I have linked an installation video so you can see how to get this wiring harness set up.
