Right Connections specialise in the development and production of vehicle specific towbar wiring kits, relays and CANbus modules for towbar manufacturers and installers.We are able to supply a wide range of 7 & 13 pin kits which when installed, either interface with the vehicle, using original connectors and/or communicate directly with the vehicle's management systems. This enables the manufacturer's towing safety features such as Trailer Stability Programs known simply as TSP, now present in todays modern motor vehicle to function.Why hide the trailer?
Out of the thousands of cars on UK roads with towbars fitted, a high percentage are likely to have fitted towing electrics which are ‘hidden’ from the car. This electrical installation is commonly called ‘By-pass electrics’. This means, in fact your car has no idea that it is towing.
In today’s world of advanced automotive electrical technology, this is not only inefficient but can prove to be potentially disastrous! Since the early 2000’s, automotive technology moved rapidly forward in introducing network systems in vehicles which allowed the detection of a trailer. In many cases, not only did the manufacturer design the vehicle to detect the trailer, but created enhanced features within the network, which actually makes it vitally important for the trailer to be ‘seen’ and not ‘hidden’ from the towing vehicle. These include some important safety and stability features, along with convenience items such as automatic fog light cut-off and parking sensor deactivation.
