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. 1. Open hood and remove four plastic fasteners and two bolts from top of facia. 2011-13 Remove six plastic fasteners and two screws. 2. Remove three screws from wheel well to fender on each side. 3. Remove three plastic push fasteners and four screws from bottom of facia. 2011-13 Remove six screws. 4.

Install driver side bracket with 7/16” x 1-1/2” bolt, lock washer, and flat washer with nutstrips using hole in from of frame exposed when bumper was removed. NOTE: Use Blue on all bolts during installation 12. Trim as shown in picture on both sides for clearance of baseplate crossmember. 8. Remove two screws from washer tank and pull out of way so bracket and bolts can be installed on passenger side. NOTE: Four push fasteners from inner wheel well 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 frame and tank tabs to keep washer tank from rubbing bolts of bracket. 10. If not ECO skip to step 15. 11.

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 support and tighten. Adjust lines for clearance thru oval hole in baseplate, lines cannot rub on baseplate. Rubber hose may be needed for protection (not included). 21.
