"Our customers will have access to important parts and service information, at their fingertips," said Dave Baxter, JLG Industries director of Marketing, Aftermarket Services.

Valley, an industry leader in hitches and towing accessories for more than 60 years, introduces the all new Towing Information System to provide constant checking of trailer lights, including taillights, brake lights and turn signals.

The Towing Information System is a 4-flat application that installs on a trailer between the vehicle and trailer connectors. Featuring Thule's exclusive Smart Towing Technology and patent-pending Wireless Communication, the system sends a wireless signal to the receiver unit - which plugs into a cigarette lighter and is powered by the vehicle's electric system - to monitor the trailer lights and notify drivers if one goes out.

"Valley is dedicated to developing industry standards that make towing easier, and it doesn't get any easier than our Towing Information System, which provides a constant 'status check' of lights while you're driving," said Mike McCann, vice president, electrical products, Valley. "Even better is that the unit is transferable from vehicle to vehicle and trailer to trailer with easy one-step calibration. Simply plug it in, select the 'What's Hooked Up' button and the system immediately understands how many lights are on the trailer."

Additionally, drivers can now check trailer lighting on their own, without enlisting another person's assistance, by plugging the unit in from the driver's seat and knowing their status before leaving the driveway.

In addition to the 4-flat harness, Valley is also developing a 7-way application for the Towing Information System.

Valley's Towing Information System has a one-year warranty. It can be purchased at leading automotive parts and retail stores including Napa Auto, O'Reilly Auto Parts, Carquest Auto Parts and U-Haul locations.
