    Who hall a trailer with K1600B Grand America

    I am wondering if some of you in MOA own a K1600B Grand America and have a motocycle trailer already functional with the can-bus system of that bike?

    I like my bike for the confortable ride but with out my Escapade trailer in the back on our trip I miss my k1300gt!
    Again I wish some of you can help me to find the proper Elecric Trailer Isolator for the K1600b Grand America?

    I guess I would ask a dealer first.....perhaps the motorcycle trailer provider?

    After that, I installed (past versions) this device many times of the "weak wired" trucks with success-



    It isolates the vehicle from the trailer- electrically.

    Hope this is of some help.

    Omega, not certain that will work with the BMW and PWM lighting.

    I am guessing the OP isn't getting much help because the knowledge base for trailering on the Grand america is pretty slim!

    To the OP, give Bushtec, https://www.bushtec.com/ a call, they seem to keep up with the new models fairly well, although they will not know what you have for lighting on you trailer.

    My Jeep Cherokee will easily haul a trailer with a k1600b inside with just the regular trailer wiring.

    Yeah, pretty slim.....

    Excerpt-

    Advanced circuitry works in all standard applications as well as vehicles with ST and STT pulse width modulation (PWM) systems
    Interprets/decodes multiplex signal inputs (i.e. Audi, BMW, Mercedes and VW)
    Will not work with vehicles with low-side switch
    Can be used on a 2 wire or 3 wire system

    If he is stuck, may be worth a call.

    Trailer info

    You need to search K1600forum.com and you will find trailer electrical info and help with your questions.

    Omega, yep, second look and it will work as long as the trailer lighting matches up.
