Towbar
#1
Hi I have a 2011 berlingo van and I'm looking for a towbar for it. If I was to buy one what's the best way to wire the electrics? With a dedicated wiring kit (if so does anyone know where to get one decently priced) or connecting into the wiring. Thanks

2 7 pins or a single for trailers only or a 13 pin effort??

You will need the sockets with trailing leads, two relays, I use pct gear, there's a relay for the lights (known as canbus relays but nothing to do with canbus really!) and also a power relay for the perm and fridge switched supplies, you'll also need a pair of 15 amp supplies running from the battery to the rear for the relays

I use pct relays and sockets for all my work, extremely reliable and don't take a crap when the first bit of driving occurs, any questions drop me a message, I should get an email then as I don't always visit Wink

Ok thanks for the reply, I think I'll maybe go down the dedicated wiring kit route. Cheers

I looked at the berlingo manf kit they wanted more for just the loom than i paid for the whole thing with after market wiring kit. Was the easiest tow-bar i ever done fitted onto a 2013 van bolts straight on just take spare wheel out bolt in job done and paid local tow-bar place £30 to wire electrics up

Just a quick question on the wiring, I now realise there is a dedicated loom available from Citroen but if not using that is there a power supply that can be used for the relay in the general area of the rear light cluster or do you have to take a fused supply from the battery??

Also fitting a tow bar to a 2011 van.

BTW, what strength of fuse would you use in the new power supply??

Thanks.

Not sure if it is the same on Berlingo vans but on the B9 Multispace, I remember reading on another thread on this site [which I cannot find at the moment] that there is already the existing loom to connect into behind the rear left-hand side panel. I was going to look into it this Summer as I was putting in some extra power outlets in the rear before going on holiday around Europe earlier this year but as it happened other things cropped up and I never checked.
