We have a 2013 Accent hatchback with the six speed STANDARD transmission. We are planning to go south for the winter and I intend to pull the Accent behind our class C motorhome. (We pulled a TDI Jetta, standard tranny, behind the motorhome, for a number of years.)

Over the weekend we installed the Blue Ox baseplate and you can see this in the attached picture. This is a permanent installation and I am using the Blue Ox baseplate because I have a Blue Ox towbar. The towbar connects to the two outer pull points and the inner connections are for the safety chains. This is a very strong baseplate and it protects the front of the car, attaching to the frame and the front steel bumper, behind the fascia.

Now I need to wire in lights to the back of the Accent. I bought a Blue Ox kit that installs a seperate dual filament tail/brake/turn bulb in each rear light housings. The new wiring does not connect to the Accent's wiring in any way.

Question is: Any suggestions on routing the wires from the front of the car to the rear? Eventually the wires will be connected to the motorhome.

If you ever decide to sell this car, please make sure you keep a log of the miles the car rolled while be towed by your RV. Your odometer might say low miles but a TOAD vehicle is easy to spot. If I was in a situation where the car was being sold as low miles but was clearly towed across country is false advertisement. Just my two-cents on TOAD vehicles.

I'd also apply some sort of leather bra or clear film over the front bumper and hood because the rocks/pebbles getting kicked up will scratch the car.

As for wiring, I would probably run the wires under the vehicle, next to the brake lines.
