Tow hitch installation

The towing device should be fastened to the body by specialized personnel according to any additional and/or integrative information supplied by the Manufacturer of the device.

The tow hitch must comply with the current regulation, with reference to Directive 94/20/EC and amendments.

Install a tow hitch which is suitable for the towing capacity of the vehicle.

Use a unified coupling for the electrical connections. The coupling is generally fitted on a specific mount fastened to the tow hitch.

For electrical connection, a 7 or 13 pole 12VDC coupling must be used (CUNA/UNI and ISO/DIN standards).

Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of the vehicle and/or the tow hitch.

Use the specific trailer light fuse box for electrical connections.

An electric brake should be supplied directly by the battery through a cable with a cross section of no less than 2.5 mm2.

In addition to the electrical connection, only the lead for powering an electric brake and the lead to power a light inside the trailer not exceeding 15W may be connected to the vehicles electrical system.

For connections use the preset control unit with battery cable no less than 2,5 mm2.
