We cannot guarantee tow bar compatibility for motor homes / camper / LPG conversions. We can advise a bar suitable for the base vehicle, but you would need to check the fitting instructions and judge for yourself if it would be suitable. We cannot guarantee tow bar compatibility for imported vehicles, unless the tow bar is specifically flagged as being for an import. EC approval is required on all tow bars for passenger vehicles from 1998 onwards. You will find the EC approval number on the tow bar itself.
In the UK this meets current requirements. In other countries you may also require a certificate for the vehicle paperwork. We do not supply these as standard, but they are available on request. There may be a charge for the certificate. It can be necessary to cut your rear bumper when fitting a tow bar.
There are 2 types of cut. Visible - A cut you can see when stood at the rear of the vehicle. Non Visible - A cut to the underside, where you cannot see it from the rear of the vehicle. Please note the cuts stated are for standard models with standard trim only. Some models require holes drilling in the chassis to attach a tow bar.There may be dimples as a guide, or on others you use the tow bars as a stencil, some require careful measurements. It can be hard to find pre-drilled holes in the chassis when they are present, quite often they are covered with tape and become indistinguishable when covered in road dirt. Tow bar manufacturers test their tow bars on standard models with basic trim levels. If your vehicle has special trim, such as S-Line, X-Pack, M-Sport, or similar, please double check the item is listed as compatible with your trim. Tow bars can cause issues with parking sensors. Depending on the vehicle, the positioning of the sensors and the type of tow bar being fitted it is possible the towbar will be picked up by the sensors. On fixed type tow bars there is no way to tell if there will be a problem until the bar is fitted. Detachable types avoid this issue as they can be removed when not is use.
13 pin is also the most common type of electrics used on the continent. Many modern vehicles cut down on weight, size and volume of the wiring looms by using electronic control systems to operate the vehicle's lights.You may hear these systems referred to as "multiplexed" or "CAN-Bus" systems. This causes the fitter a problem in that the trailer or caravan lighting is traditional filament lighting with one wire per function and is not designed with these "multiplexed" systems in mind. What is needed is a way of "translating" the vehicle's pulsed shared signals into constant 12 volt supplies to each light on the trailer or caravan. The 7-way smart bypass relay does the job of translating these signals and is a simple in-line fit between the towbar wiring and the vehicle loom. The fitter need not have an in depth understanding of the "multiplexed" system - the smart bypass relay's inbuilt microchip does all that.
Alko compatible tow balls have extended necks compared to standard tow balls to give extra clearance for stabilisers. Swan neck and detachable type tow bars are alko compatible as standard.
For flange type tow bars, an alko compatible tow ball can be fitted. Alko type balls fit the same way as standard tow balls and can be used with a non-alko trailers also. Alko tow balls should have the paint removed from the ball and be kept free of grease. PF Jones - Quality, Service, Value.The core values of PF Jones are clear and simple; Quality, Service, Value.
