Expert Answers about Honda Ridgeline


  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Honda Ridgeline Towing Travel Trailer
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Typically tongue weight is 10-15...

  • Best Way to Carry 4 Bikes with a Honda Ridgeline
  • The Thule Tailgate pad part # TH823 has been confirmed to fit the tailgate of your 2008 Honda Ridgeline, but it can only carry up to 2 bikes. Your best option though would be to install a hitch and go with a hitch mounted bike rack though as the # UG2500-4 that you referenced has not been confirmed to fit your vehicle. For a hitch you would want the Draw Tite Hitch part # 75280. I attached an install video as well. The most popular 4 bike rack we offer that would work well on the...

  • Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2010 Honda Ridgeline
  • Installation of the front mount receiver # 33328 is not all that difficult on a 2010 Honda Ridgeline. There is a little bit of fascia trimming required and a couple of the bolts have to be fishwired in but other than that it bolts into place. The trimming is explained in the instructions. 2011 and older models require far less trimming than 2012 and newer models. The fishwire technique is easy enough. I have included some links that should help explain fishwiring for you. Carrying...

  • Class III Trailer Hitch and Towing Accessories for 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • If you're needing a Class III hitch for a 2006 Ridgeline, the Curt Class III, part # 13385 would work well for you. You can complete your towing system with the following: Trailer wiring harness with 4-pole trailer connector, part # 118400 Ball mount, part # 2923 1-7/8 inch trailer ball, part # 19260 2 inch trailer ball, part # 63845 The Curt # 13555 you referred to is a fit for a 2007-2011 Honda CR-V, so it wouldn't fit a 2006 Ridgeline. You can see install videos for the hitch...

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • If your 2008 Honda Ridgeline came with a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector then it is possible that # HM40975 will fit. You will need to look at the wiring harness that plugs into the back of the factory 7-Way. If it looks the same as the back of # HM40975, see picture, then you can use it. If your Ridgeline did not come with a 7-Way then to add one you will start by installing a 4-Way (unless the truck already has one) using # 118400. Then you will need to install 4- and 7-Way...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Honda Ridgeline

  • Compatibility of Pollak # PK12716 7-way to 4-Pole Adapter with OEM 7-way on 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Pollak # PK12716 would indeed do exactly what your wanting to accomplish. The adapter will plug into the existing 7-way, and would provide a 4-pole connection that would allow you to tow your boat trailer. I've linked you to a product demonstration video, which I hope you'll find helpful.

  • Can Tailgate be Opened with Kuat NV Bike Rack Installed on a 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • On the Kuat NV, # N101, when no bikes are on it and you have the arms folded down it measures 13-1/8 inches from the center of the hitch opening to the top most part of the rack. But if you have the arms folded down and also tilt the rack down it measures 11-7/8 inches. So it is possible that you will be able to open the tailgate on your 2006 Honda Ridgeline with the bike rack still in the hitch. You would have to lower the tailgate and then measure from the center of the receiver opening...

  • Bike Rack for the Bed of a 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • We do have some truck bed mount bike racks you can use but models like # SATRK00 will not fit because they cannot install correctly in the unique bed of the Ridgeline and similar trucks. I have linked the options that you can use. Basically you are looking at a bolt-on which will require drilling or a tailgate pad. The pads are the way to go for ease of installation and use. The most popular option is from Softride, # SR26461.

  • Weight Capacity for the Brophy E-Track # ET4S
  • I spoke to my contact at Brophy and she informed me that the actual track itself part # ET4S has a 5k capacity. But since you would be limited to the capacity of where it installs you would most likely not get that capacity since it's such a small section that can only have 6 fasteners secure it.

If your current 7-way socket has the round U.S. style connector plugged into the back of it, then you can use the this connector. See picture I included. If you don't have the U.S. style connector plugged into the back of your 7-way, then you can still use this connector but you will need to splice in the 4 foot 7-pole pigtail # PK11998 into your existing...

  • Bike Carrier for Schwinn Meridian 26-Inch Trike and Mountain Bike on Honda Ridgeline
  • According to my research Honda announced on July 12, 2013 that they were going to end production of the Ridgeline after the 2014 model year. A redesigned model is anticipated for 2016. Perhaps you have a 2014 model year? The 72-lb shipping weight of your Schwinn trike means that the bike itself probably weighs about 65-lbs, which is more than most trunk-mount bike carriers can handle. This makes a hitch and hitch-mount bike carrier the best option for your vehicle. If you don't have...

  • What Is The Length Of Wire Harness Attached To Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller
  • I pulled one of the Tekonsha Voyager brake Controllers, part # 39510 from our warehouse to take a measurement for you. The wire that exits the back of the brake controller measures 8 inches from the back of the unit to the end of the connector. If you have a 7-way connector on the rear of your 2013 Honda Ridgeline, you can use a quick connect adapter, part # 3070-P. One end simply attaches to the connector at the back of the brake controller and the other end plugs into built-in harness...

  • The Bully Light-Up Trailer Hitch Receiver Cover # CR-007XL will connect to a 4-pole flat trailer wiring connector on your 2013 Ridgeline. If your truck does not have a working 4-pole flat trailer connector it is easy to add one using part # 118400. This wiring harness simply plugs in at your truck's taillights and no cutting or splicing of wires is required. If you have a different type of trailer connector on the truck please let me know so I can recommend a suitable adapter. I have...

  • Replacement OEM 7-Way Trailer Connector for 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • I believe the 7-way on your Ridgeline plugs into a US car connector. You can check this by unplugging the damaged 7-way connector from the wiring harness that plugs into the back of it, and comparing what the connector looks like, compared to the left-hand panel in the photo I've provided for you. If they match, you can use the # HM40975 as a replacement for your 7-way. We don't have the OEM Honda part, but this connector will provide you with a functional 4-pole, as well as the 7-way....

  • Compatible Bike Rack for Carrying Cross Country Skis w/ Thule Tram Ski and Snowboard Carrier Adapter
  • The Thule Tram Ski Carrier, part # TH9033 has only been tested on Thule bike racks, so I couldn't recommend using it on any other manufacturer's racks. Your very least expensive compatible rack option would be the Thule Parkway, part # TH958. However, I'd actually recommend going with the Hitching Post Pro, part # TH934XTR. For only a few more dollars, you get capacity for two more bikes, anti-sway cradles and arms that fold down for easy storage. The Hitching Post Pro is also compatible...

  • Brake Controller and Installation Harness Recommendation for a 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • Sounds like your 2007 Honda Ridgeline has a factory 7-way installed in it. To install a brake controller in your vehicle all you will need is the correct install harness. If you went with a Tekonsha brake controller like the P2 part # 90885 all you would need to is the # 3070-P. Simply plug one end of the adapter into your brake controller and then plug the other end into the built-in harness beneath your vehicle's dash. From there your vehicle's wiring will carry the signal back to...

  • Installing 7-Way Trailer Connector on 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • Unless the vehicle is equipped with the OEM 7-way (apparently it's not), the 12-volt circuit wouldn't be ran from the front of the vehicle. You can run the circuit yourself using a length of 10 gauge wire like part # 10-1-1. You'll need to run the wire through a 40 amp circuit breaker, part # 9510. You'll want to route the wire in such a way that it avoids anything that's hot or moving, like suspension, steering and exhaust components. If you're wanting to install a brake controller,...

  • We don't have a video that details how to replace the strap of your K2 Winch like part # K2STSP8422, but I did speak to my contact at K2 and he gave me a brief description of the process. On the winch there is a u-bolt that needs to get removed after feeding the strap all the way out. He said this is pretty obvious and easy to do. Next, there is a pin holding the strap to the spool. On the side of the winch there are a couple of holes. You will need to line the pin up with one of the...

They told me that there is no drilling required when you install the cover. They did say that there are 3 Torx bolts that need to be removed to allow the front L bracket to be installed near the back of the truck cab. You would also need to remove 2 more Torx bolts near the rear of the bed on the truck. I have attached a drawing...

  • Fit of Thule Sonic Large # TH634B Roof Mounted Cargo Box on 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • Thule doesn't have individual fit information for your Ridgeline, but you can quickly determine if the box will fit by measuring the width of your roof rack crossbars and the bar spread (center to center distance between the front and rear bar crossbars). The Thule Sonic Large box cargo box you mentioned, part # TH634B will fit crossbars up to 3-3/4 inches wide. It fits crossbars that can be adjusted so their bar spread is between 23-5/85 and 35-1/2 inches. If your crossbars that I saw...

  • Will Loaded Hitch Bike Rack Interfere with Operation of Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera # HM50002
  • The Hopkins Smart Hitch Backup Camera and Hitch Aligner # HM50002 that you referenced does have two modes - backup camera and hitch aligner - and the set of sensors that activate it do not have adjustment capability to alter their effective trigger point. These distances are pre-set. As you note a loaded bike rack will likely fool the sensors. This will to a degree vary based on the exact size and nature of the bikes. In your application a better solution may be a camera system that...

  • Compatibility of Snowsport HD Snowplow # A40000HD with 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Snowsport HD plow you referenced, part # A40000HD isn't a vehicle specific item. As long as the vehicle in question can use a 2 inch front mounted receiver, the Snowsport would work great for you. There is a front hitch available for your Ridgeline, part # 33328. Because the Snowsport is pretty lightweight, at a bit less than 200 lbs, you shouldn't need any reinforcement to your front suspension, like some of the hydraulically articulated plows.

  • How Does the Topline Truck Bed Bike Rack Install on a 2012 Honda Ridgeline

However, I recently learned that on a Ridgeline it would require some pretty in-depth trimming of the bed liner so it is not an ideal option. I have linked a video to the right that covers the installation. Another simple option is the Tailgate Pad # SR26461. It slips over the tailgate and protects it while the front bike wheels rest over the tailgate....

  • 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.

  • The Kuat Beta bike rack # B202-114 is designed to fit 1-1/4 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 10-1/2 inches then the rack will clear the obstruction. I...

  • 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

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.

  • 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...

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...
