  • When choosing a weight distribution system, the most important thing to know is the total tongue weight. That is the tongue weight of the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow added to the weight of any cargo placed behind the rear axle. To compare the Fastway system like part # FA92-00-0800 to the Equal-I-zer part # EQ37100ET, I would go with the Equal-i-zer. They both have trunnion spring bars and can handle similar weight but the Equal-I-zer has a 4-point sway...

  • I prefer the hard tonneau covers like the BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover, # BAK26601. 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...

  • The Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier, part # DTA944-968-924 has foam blocks that support the crossbar and use a strap that runs through the interior of the truck cab. This system has a 350-lb weight capacity but you will need to make sure you do not exceed the roof weight capacity on your Ridgeline. The crossbar for the roof included with this system can be extended from 45 to 60 inches wide, and the crossbar on the extension is 48 inches wide. That may pose a problem with...

The tongue weight capacity of the Curt hitch is 500 lbs. All three trailer hitches have a maximum gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000 lbs. As long as the weight of your trailer and...

  • According to the information we have, Ridgelines either came with a 7-Way or no trailer connector. Since you added your 4-Way, I assume your Ridgeline did not come with a 7-Way in which case there is no functioning brake controller port underneath the dash. You will need to add a 7-Way, using something like part # ETBC7. It is a kit that includes a 7-Way and all the components you will need to set up your Ridgeline for a brake controller. You would connect the 4-Way you currently...

  • The cover that you have selected, # CA80042, will fit a pop-up camper up to 18 feet long. The height is 42 inches. Given that your camper has high sidewalls and an air conditioner, you would probably benefit from a slightly larger size. Cover # 052963745030, is 17 feet long, 7 feet wide, and 3 and a half feet tall. The extra length will compensate for the taller side walls and air conditioner. The next size up from this is # CA80043 which fits 18 to 20 foot long campers. Again...

  • If your Ridgeline is equipped with the factory tow package, you can use the Tekonsha Wiring Adapter, part # 3070-P to connect a controller. The presence of the factory 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper is a sure indication that your Ridgeline is equipped with the tow package. To install the controller, simply plug the larger end of the connector into the connector located under the dash. The connector can be found taped to another harness, to the left of the steering...

  • Yes, that makes good sense...you want a single bar roof rack for use with your Darby Extend-A-Truck Kayak Carrier # DTA944-968-924 to transport your stand-up paddleboard (SUP). No sense paying for two crossbars when you need only one. But I have an even better option for you that will save you even more money! Since your only need is transporting the SUP you can completely avoid the cost of a roof rack bar by using your hitch-mount Darby Kayak Carrier # DTA944-968-924 along...

  • 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...

  • It is possible to install the Peak Wireless Backup Camera, # PKC0RB, on your 2010 Honda Ridgeline. You are correct, the camera portion is connected to the transmitter and to the reverse light wire. The transmitter sends the video to the monitor mounted in the cab. The transmitter needs to be kept out of the elements, so it will need to either be in the cab of the vehicle or in the trunk compartment in the bed of your Ridgeline (as long as it can still transmit without too...

  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the owners manual for your Honda Ridgeline. Honda does allow the use of weight distribution on some of their vehicles but not all. The owners manual, towing section, will tell you if it is permissible to do so with your truck. Weight distribution primarily is connected to the trailer though the benefits are that the tongue weight of the trailer is better distributed to all axles of the tow vehicle and trailer. I have included...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

While there currently is no custom wiring harness for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline, a great universal option, I recommend for you to install the ZCI wiring harness # 119250KIT. The ZCI harness will install a 4-way trailer connector on your vehicle without cutting or splicing...

  • 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....
