Expert Answers about Honda Ridgeline


  • Time-Delayed Brake Controller Recommendation for 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • If your trailer uses electric brakes and if your 2014 Honda Ridgeline has a factory 7-way trailer connector at the back, then you can use a time-delayed type brake controller such as the Curt Venturer # C51110 along with a quick-connect wiring harness # C51392. The link provided will let you see all time-delayed units offered. Time-Delay type brake controllers do not require the careful mounting angles of proportional types (which use internal sensors to determine braking level) so they can b

  • Will the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock Work on a 2014 Honda Ridgeline with a Backup Camera
  • You do not need to replace the handle on your 2014 Honda Ridgeline to install the Pop and Lock # PAL6100. This will not interfere with your existing back up camera, it will install on the on the interior side of your existing tailgate handle system. Currently your back up camera is installed on the right hand side of your tailgate handle, and the external locking mechanism for this tailgate lock installs on the left side of your tailgate handle I have included a photo that I have extracted

  • 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 refer

  • Tonneau Cover and Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a Honda Ridgeline with Factory Backup Camera
  • I prefer the hard tonneau covers like the Extang Solid Fold Tonneau Cover, # EX56825. 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 cannot

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for a 2008 Honda Ridgeline for a 4 and 7-way and Brake Controller
  • Yes, you will need a couple different wiring kits, but there is a way for you get both a 4 and 7-way on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline and have them both be fully functional so that you can install a brake controller. First, you will need the Curt Wiring Harness part # C55585 that you referenced to install a 4-way on your vehicle. Once that is installed you will be ready to install the Brake Controller and 7-Way Installation Kit part # ETBC7 that will give you a fully functional 7-way to use a bra

  • 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. Sinc

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller on a 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • That towing package might include other things like an alternate transmission cooler or other items including the wiring. That could explain why they say its for more heavy duty towing. To see if the brake output function reaches from under the dash to the connector at the rear one thing you can try is to run 12 volt power on the circuit in either direction. Then test the other end with a meter or test like such as # 3808. If it is connected all the way back then that is one less hardwiring

  • Need Roof Rack and Water Sports Carriers for Paddle Board and Kayak on 2012 Honda Ridgeline
  • A first step in finding a roof rack and appropriate watercraft carriers for your 2012 Honda Ridgeline Sport is a check of your owners manual (or inquiry to your local dealership) to confirm how much weight the roof can safely handle. I did check an online version of the manual for the 2012 Ridgeline but I was not able to find a roof weight capacity rating. The vehicle roof needs to be able to handle the total combined weight of a roof rack, the water sport carriers you choose, plus the weight

  • 7-Way to 4- or 5-Way Adapter for 2013 Honda Ridgeline w/Factory 7-Way and PWC Trailer w/4 or 5-Way
  • Yes, there are adapters to go from the 7-Way on your 2013 Honda Ridgeline to a 4- or 5-Way trailer connector on your trailer. A popular adapter for this situation is # 37385. 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.

  • Availability of Rightline Gear Truck Bed Tent for 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • According to my contact at Rightline Gear, they do not offer a bed tent compatible with the unique bed configuration of the Ridgeline.

  • Installing Brake Controller 2008 Honda Ridgeline Without Tow Package
  • When installing the 7-way trailer connector and brake controller, you will need to make two connections at the battery. The accessory circuit from the 7-way will run from the 7-way at the rear of the vehicle to the engine compartment, making sure to avoid anything hot or moving like exhaust and suspension or steering components. The wire would connect to an inline 40 amp circuit breaker, and then connect to the positive battery terminal. The power wire for the brake controller would pass through

This particular tent fits mid-size trucks with 63-inch beds, such as certain years of the Dodge Dakota, Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma.

  • Replacing Wood Bunks with Roller Bunks on a Boat Trailer
  • Since it is recommended to use 2 roller bunk brackets for each individual roller bunk, I recommend adding additional roller bunk brackets and removing the wood bunks. You could use the Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket, # DL21742. This bracket is compatible with the 4 foot and 5 foot Dutton Lainson Roller Bunks, # DL21741 and # DL21740. You will need a total of 8 brackets to mount a 5 foot and a 4 foot roller bunk on each side of the trailer.

  • Brake and Turn Signals Are Not Working On Trailer Towed by a 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • If your 2006 Honda Ridgeline came with a factory 7-Way trailer connector and it was working before but now it is not, check the vehicle owners manual for the fuse/relay locations related to the tow package wiring to see if any need to be replaced. That is the most likely cause. If the trailer wiring was added aftermarket then there could be a ground problem or a dirty/corroded connector. Check the grounding location and make sure that it is attached to a clean and corrosion free bare metal su

  • Brightness and Compatibility of LED Replacement Bulbs for Back-Up Light on 2007 Honda Ridgeline

It is certainly fair to say that after-market LED bulbs are sometimes brighter than their OEM counterparts and are almost always much brighter than incandescent types. Putco brake and back-up bulbs of the same type are rated the same. The Putco 360-type Plasma 921 LED Bulbs (2), part # P240921W-360 are rated for 85 lumens according to my contact at Putco.

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a Trailer Hauling a 4000 lb Tractor with 2012 Honda Ridgeline

If you are experiencing any of these factors, I recommend using weight distribution. To determine which weight distribution system will be the best system for you, you will need to know the total tongue weight of yo

You will need a 12 volt power source, a vehicle battery will work, and I recommend using the replacement Brake Control Plug-In Harness, # 20127, so you do not have to cut into your wiring harness. You will connect the white wire from the harness to the negative battery terminal and the black wire to the positive terminal. This should provide power to the brake controller and th

  • Using Weight Distribution System On 2012 Honda Ridgeline
  • Honda specifically states in the Owners Manual that they do not recommend using a weight distribution system on a Ridgeline. Honda states that an improperly adjusted W/D system can reduce steering, handling and braking performance (paraphrase from owners manual.) Does this mean that a properly adjusted system is okay? Good question. I would recommend checking with your Honda Dealer for clarification. We cannot recommend anything that would contradict the vehicle manufacturer recommendations.

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.

  • Parts Needed To Flat Tow a 2006 Honda Ridgeline Behind a Motor Home
  • First, if your Ridgeline is all wheel drive (AWD), it must be towed with all 4 wheels on a trailer. If the owners manual states you can flat tow it, you will need to fit the 2006 Honda Ridgeline with base plates, # BX2239. You will then need a compatible tow bar. I recommend the Blue Ox Aventa LX, # BX7445. It is the most popular Blue Ox tow bar. It has a 10,000 pound capacity and it comes with safety cables. You will also need a lighting solution for the vehicle. If you do not plan on to
