    Default Towbar Electrics

    Hi all,

    I have a single socket towbar to fit.

    What is recommended regarding the wiring please?

    Is it ok to splice into the electrics or go for the Vx wiring kit?


    TIA

    Fair enough

    What is Can Bus or half Can Bus?? I've seen it mentioned a fair bit, but not sure what it means?


    Cheers

    Basically just cars computer network.

    designed to reduce the number of wires the vehicle requires.
    by each control unit receiving/ sending messages from all sensors they just take their own but of info they require and the message carrys on around the system.

    really simple explanation of how it works, if you google it will give you more depth info
