Best 2010 Toyota Highlander Hitch Options
Today on our 2010 Toyota Highlander we'll be looking at the most popular hitch options available, starting with the CURT class three here on the top, part number 13534. Then we have a Draw-Tite class three here in the middle, part number 75726. Then we have another Draw-Tite class three here on the bottom, part number 75586. You can see all of our hitches have a very similar design. The CURT and the Draw-Tite here in the middle, they both slide over our muffler on the passenger side of the vehicle, whereas the Draw-Tite here on the bottom goes underneath it. The Draw-Tite on the bottom will be the easiest to install because you don't have to wiggle it in position over the muffler and tailpipe. Now they all have generally the same points of attachment.

Today on this 2010 Toyota Highlander we are going to be installing Prodigy brake controller, part number 90185. We are going to start our install inside the cab of the vehicle. We are going to first mount the Prodigy brake controller into place and then we will start the wiring process after that. The first thing that I want to note is that the Prodigy comes with two different mounting brackets here. The more traditional smaller bracket does take screws that are holding it in so it is more of a permanent fixture. And the less permanent pocket option is a little bit bulkier but it allows you to move the Prodigy easily, either if you want to store it or want to use it between different vehicles. Instead of having mounting screws, it uses these clips on the sides to hold it in place. So to move it from one vehicle to another, all you need to do is unplug the harness out of the back of the Prodigy. For this installation, we are going to use the more traditional bracket to save a little bit of room because this is a tight vehicle. There is not a whole lot of working room. 0:51
Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2010 Toyota Highlander
Today on this 2010 Toyota Highlander we are going to be installing wiring harness part number 118449. The first thing I want to point out about our harness is that it comes in two separate pieces. We have got the first section which has an in line fuse in the modulite box as well as the port to plug in the vehicle. This is going to plug in underneath the dash on the driver side of the vehicle. The second part of the harness plugs into the rear of the vehicle inside the rear cargo compartment and that will finalize the tow package for us. We are going to start here inside the vehicle up underneath the dash and plug our first part of the harness in place. The port is located underneath the dash just left of the brake pedal taped to the main wiring harness. All we need to do in here is plug it in line and then we see on the back side of the modulite box we have got double sided tape. We want to find a good spot up in here and adhere the box to it. 00:54

Further up the frame you can see we have got a plug. We are going to remove that plug to expose the weld nut and that is going to provide our third attaching point for the trailer hitch. You can move to the outboard passenger side of the frame you can see we have got three plugs in it. We want to remove all three of those and we are going to be using the two outer most holes as our side attaching points. Again we have got the same tow hook.
