Expert Answers about Honda Ridgeline


  • Extra Support for Tailgate on 2007 Honda Ridgeline to Load Yamaha Brute Force ATV
  • I do have an excellent solution for you that would be much better than a cable would, but no cables. I recommend using the Blue Ox TailGator # SC1200. It reduces the stress on the tailgate by using the trailer hitch for support. I have linked the installation instructions to the right for you. If your 2007 Honda Ridgeline does not have a trailer hitch you can install one using Curt hitch # 13385. I have linked a video showing how the hitch installs for you.

  • Will Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera Fit a 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • If you look at the back of the 7-Way trailer connector on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline you should see that there is a wiring harness with a round plug and is plugged into the back of the connector. If you release the locking tabs and pull that plug off, it should look like one of the connectors in the backup camera # HM50002. I have included a picture of what it should look like. If it looks like the picture then the backup camera will plug in line with the 7-Way. If it does not look like...

  • Difficulty of Installation for Pop & Lock # PAL6100 Tailgate Lock on 2013 Honda Ridgeline
  • I've looked over the instructions for the Pop & Lock # PAL6100, and it looks to me like somebody of average or better mechanical ability should be able to handle the installation without too much problem. I'll send you a copy of the installation instructions in a separate email. You can look the instructions over and see if the installation is something you'd feel comfortable attempting. If not, your local mechanic should be able to complete the installation for you.

  • Parts Needed to Install a 7-Way and Brake Controller on a 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • First, consumers of aftermarket products are protected by the Federal Magnusson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually caused the probĀ­lem in question. With that said there are currently no 7-Way harnesses that you can just plug into the 2014 Honda Ridgeline. It is possible that options for the 2013 will...

  • Will the BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26601 Limit Trunk Access on a 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • If the BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26601 was installed on your 2014 Honda Ridgeline and it was folded back you would have no interference with it and your trunk. If the G2 cover was folded down the door would open basically as tall as the distance from the truck bed to the top of the bed rails of your vehicle. The trunk wouldn't open all the way, but it would open far enough to give you access to what you have in your trunk. If you needed more access you would just need to fold...

  • Troubleshooting 4-Pole Wiring on Re-Wired Boat Trailer
  • The best first step is to isolate the problem to either the tow vehicle's wiring or the trailer's. Disconnect the boat trailer's 4-pole. Use your vehicle battery (or a spare battery) to directly test the trailer lighting on its own by connecting the 4-pole ground pin to the battery negative terminal and one by one connecting the battery hot terminal to each of the other pins on the trailer's 4-pole. If the trailer lights behave properly when connected in this manner then you know the...

  • Can Higher Capacity Spring Bars be Added to Pro Series 750 Pound Weight Distribution System
  • You actually will need spring bars rated higher than 1,000 pounds. You are not trying to match the tongue weight of the trailer, you want the bars to be rated a little higher for the most effective system. Also, you have to take into account the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of your new F-150 and add that to the trailer tongue weight to get the total tongue weight. I recommend going with the 1200 pound bar # 58338 instead of the 1000 pound bar. You will need to order...

  • How to Pick out Bearing Buddies
  • In order to pick out the correct bearing buddy you will need know the pilot hole of your hub. To do this, remove the wheel and tire and remove the grease cap from the center of the hub. Usually it is a metal cap that is just lightly hammered into place. Use a screwdriver to pry off the cap. Clean the grease off and measure the opening. I have included a video demonstrating the Bearing Buddy. The Bearing Buddies # BB1980A-SS that you referenced are for hubs with a 1.781 inch hub bore.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness for 2007 Honda Ridgeline that Will Work with LED Trailer Lighting

  • Will the Kuat Beta Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Kuat Alpha bike rack # A102-Black is designed to fit 2 inch trailer hitch receivers so as long as the hitch on your 2011 Honda Ridgeline is a 2 inch the rack will fit the hitch. To determine clearance to the tailgate or bumper you will need to measure from the center of the trailer hitch pin hole straight back to the distance needed to clear the bumper, tailgate, or any other obstruction. If that distance is less than 7-1/2 inches then the rack will clear the obstruction. I have...

  • Friction Sway Control Installation Recommendation on a 2007 Starcraft 2406 Pop Up
  • Is there anything on the other side of the trailer frame? If not, you could just run the Pro Series Sway Control part # 83660 on the other side of the trailer and you would be good to go. You would just need to loosen the sway control unit enough that you could slide the inner piece out and then flip it 180 degrees and reinsert it and it would be ready to use on the other side of your trailer. I attached an install video for this product for you to check out also.

  • Super Extra Long Ball Mount with 4 Inch Drop for Towing Bike Rack and 2012 Honda Ridgeline
  • We do have a super extra long ball mount that has a 4 inch drop! It is # 80233. It measures 16 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole, the same as # 80232. It would be best to tow the trailer as level as possible so if 4 inches of drop is needed go with # 80233. We do have the Swagman adapter bar you are looking for. It is # 64005. I have linked a video that shows how it works.

All the racks for your truck will have a crossbar spread of 29-1/2-inches centered on your roof and all can be seen on the link provided.

  • Time-Delayed Brake Controller Recommendation for 2014 Honda Ridgeline

  • Recommended Screw Size for Installing Rackem 2-Hook Multi-Tool Trailer Rack
  • Thank you for your recent order. When you install your Rackem 2-Hook Multi-Tool Trailer Racks, # RA-11 and RA-13, in your enclosed trailer it may be a good idea to add a strip of additional wood material between the rack and the trailer 3/8-inch plywood wall. This will allow you to use longer wood screws. If the items you intend to store are light in weight, say a broom for example, then you can possibly skip this extra step. The screw holes in this rack are 1/4-inch in diameter. Please...

The hard tonneau covers offer excellent durability and would be more difficult to break into than a soft tonneau cover. This tonneau cover will fit the 2006 to 2014 Honda Ridgeline and does not require any tools or drilling to install. The tonneau covers for the Honda Ridgeline do not come with a built-in locking mechanism, so you would want to use the tailgate lock to lock the cover. If the tailgate...

  • Troubleshooting Bizzare Trailer Light Blinking
  • To me it sounds like there was a short on your trailer which caused the Tow Ready Wiring Harness # 118400 that you referenced to short out as well. Bizarre trailer light behavior is usually caused by a shorted out converter box or bad tail light grounds. I would check the condition of the grounds of the tail lights first. Some assemblies ground through the mounting hardware, if that is what you have then you should check to make sure the assemblies are attached to a clean, metal surface. Since...

  • Need Roof Rack and Water Sports Carriers for Paddle Board and Kayak on 2012 Honda Ridgeline

It plugs into the 7-Way on the vehicle and has separate 4 and 5-Way ends on the other side for the trailer. You usually see 5-Way trailer connectors on boat trailers or any trailer that has an electric reverse lockout on a surge break actuating coupler.

  • Brake and Turn Signals Are Not Working On Trailer Towed by a 2006 Honda Ridgeline

  • Adapter for Trailer with 7-Way Round Connector and 2012 Honda Ridgeline with 7-Way Blade Connector
  • It sounds like the connector on the boat is an adapted 4-Way to use with a 7-Way round pin trailer connector on a vehicle. That would be why there are just 4 pins, 3 for the lighting functions and 1 for ground. If that is the case then the 7-Way blade to 7-Way round adapter, # 47595 should work just fine. Most boat trailers have the basic lighting functions but do not have the components that require the other circuits such as 12 volt accessory power and electric brakes.
