The product was back-ordered from the manufacturer, but eTrailer kept me appraised of the status. When it did ship, it got here promptly (NoCalif). The Hidden Hitch was a snap to install - good directions and all the hardware that I needed. It took me about an hour, including fumbling with my multimeter to check the wiring. Here's a tip: if your car is less than brand new, any factory-installed threaded openings are probably caked with road grime. Clean them out by spraying the bolt with a lubricant and running it in the hole a ways before you start wrestling with the hitch under the car. This is the second hitch I've bought from eTrailer, so I don't shop anywhere else.109452

Installed hitch on a Acura RDX. It took two of us about 25 minutes to install no jacks no C clamps. It fits perfect.110576

  • How to Choose a Ball Mount for a 2014 Acura RDX with Class III Trailer Hitch
  • Since you have a Class III trailer hitch on your 2014 Acura RDX you can use any compatible ball mount that will allow you to tow the trailer level. Or if towing different trailers, an adjustable ball mount is the way to go. I have included a link to an article that explains how to measure to find the right rise or drop ball mount needed to tow a trailer level. The standard ball mount that we recommend for Class III hitches on the 2014 RDX is # 2753. It has a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. If
