WARRANTY POLICY & REGISTRATION
Go online to www.demco-products.com to review Demco warranty policies and register your Demco product.
Warning: Failure to follow these instructions can result in loss of towing vehicle control, separation
of the tow BAR from the towing vehicle, separation of the towed vehicle from the tow BAR, causing severe personal injury, death, or property damage.
CAUTION
Safety is of utmost importance at all times. There are several items that must
be checked each time before using and while using a tow bar.
Before allowing anyone to hook up or operate a tow bar, be sure they have
read and understand the proper operating procedure.
DO NOT use worn or damaged cables and/or pins.
Be sure the SAFETY CABLES are hooked, chassis to chassis, to both the
towing and towed vehicles using the crisscross method.
Check clearance between vehicles in a turning situation.
Check base plate mounting bolts for tightness and frame for metal fatigue.
Do not load the towed vehicle with anything as you may exceed the towing
capacity of the tow bar.
Keep fingers away from pivot points to prevent personal injury.
Be sure the steering components of the towed vehicle are properly aligned.
NOTE: This unit can be backed up in moderate increments. Any severe
backwards cornering could result in damage to the Tow Bar and/or towed
vehicle chassis.
For automatic transmissions: Consult your vehicle owners manual for towing
suitability with the drive shaft connected. Otherwise, the towed vehicle will have
to be equipped with a transmission pump or drive shaft disconnect.
Check to make sure that all lights are in proper working order.
The information on towability of vehicles is reprinted with permission
of MotorHome© Magazine, and is believed to be reliable. However, Demco
does not warrant the information to be correct. Always consult your towed
vehicle owner’s manual and follow towing instructions. Each year, MotorHome©
Magazine, compiles a list of vehicles that can be towed four-down behind a
motorhome with no modifications required. This guide contains only those
vehicles that have been approved by their manufacturers for towing.
Caution: MotorHome© Magazine left out any vehicles that have towing
speed limits slower than 55 m.p.h., or distance limits of less than 200 miles.
At a minimum, these vehicles require significant modification, such as the use
of an aftermarket product, to make them towable. The availability of a Demco
Tow Bar Base Plate does not imply that these vehicles can be modified or
that there is an aftermarket product available. Refer to your vehicle owner’s
manual or consult your dealer to determine whether your vehicle can be
modified to make it towable. Failure to observe this precaution could result in
property damage or personal injury.
important installation items
DEMCO products and accessories are intended to be
installed by professional installers with experience,
proper equipment and the ability to do modification
work. Installers with these qualifications can be
found in RV and Automotive Service Centers.
If the car to be towed has been in an accident, the
chassis may be damaged in an area where the Base
Plate attaches. It may no longer be suitable for towing. Extreme caution and careful examination are
required in such a situation. It is also likely, even
from a minor accident, that the hole alignment will
be more difficult due to hole alignment problems.
Many DEMCO Base Plates are designed to use
existing holes and hardware to mount the Base Plate
to the towed vehicle. Even though the bolt is there,
however, do not assume it is adequate for mounting
the Base Plate. Manufacturers make many changes
in hardware both within and between model years.
Be sure the bolt is long enough to protrude past the
nut a distance no less than 1/2 the diameter of the
bolt, after the Base Plate is mounted. The threads
should be in good condition. We require that
“
Blue” be used on all bolts. If a
new bolt is required, be sure it is SAE Grade 5 or
Metric 8.8.
NOTE: The dimensional variations between otherwise
identical vehicles can be considerable. Some minor modifications may have to be made to ensure
a proper fit.

bolts from top of facia. 2011-13 Remove six plastic
fasteners and two screws.

12. Trim as shown in picture on both sides for clearance of
baseplate crossmember.

way so bracket and bolts can be installed on passenger

may be removed to make installation easier or remove
tank completely.
9. Install bracket and bolts the same as in step 7 on drivers
side. Reinstall washer tank using 1/2” spacers between

bottom and 1/2” from outside edge. Drill two 3/8” holes
thru bumper, baseplate, and frame on both sides. Fasten

nuts.
20. IF EQUIPPED Before reinstalling lower tin support, remove cooler line studs in a vise, then drill out holes to 1/4”.
Fasten tin support with one washer and nut previously
removed on top to one side and leave it loose. Install
cooler lines by using plated spacer bushings, 1/4” x 1-1/2”
bolts, lockwashers, and nuts. Finish installing lower tin
