2014 Honda CR-V Questions and Answers


  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Recommendations for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The 2014 Honda CR-V had 3 possible roof configurations: nothing at all (called a naked roof), flush mount side rails that run front to back, and factory roof rack that includes crossbars that run side to side. Starting with the naked roof option I recommend Rhino-Rack Vortex roof rack using the following parts: Crossbars # RRVA137B-2 Foot pack # RRRLKVA Custom clamp kit # DK284 Then you could add kayak carrier # S512-S511X which holds 2 kayaks. For the side rail model I recommend...

  • Base Plate Recommendation for Flat Towing 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The difference between the EZ4 Base Plate kit part # RM-521567-4 and the EZ5 kit # RM-521567-5 is that the EZ4 uses twist-lock drawbars while the EZ5 uses drawbars held in place by pins and doesn't require the use of a crossbar. The EZ4 and standard EZ base plate part # 521567-1 are so similar they share the same installation instructions. Typically the EZ4 brackets sit even further back than the EZ brackets for a more hidden look. For that reason I would go with the EZ4 # RM-521567-4. In...

  • Does a 12 Volt Power Outlet have to be Installed to use Blue Ox Patriot on a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • I do believe that on the 2014 Honda CR-V you only have to pull fuses if you are towing the vehicle for 8 hours or more without stopping to let it run so that the alternator can charge up the battery. Consult the owners manual to confirm. If you ran a charge wire to the vehicle battery it would provide a maintenance charge but would not charge up the battery. You still might get some battery drain but not nearly as much as if you didn't have a charge wire attached. The fuse that needs...

  • Carrying Cargo on a Hitch Mount Carrier and Roof Carrier on a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Technically, the sky's the limit when putting things on a trailer hitch mounted cargo carrier as long as you are within the capacity of the carrier and vehicle. But realistically I do not recommend stacking cargo so high that it blocks your view through the rear window on your 2015 Honda CR-V. Also you would need to stay within the capacity of the hitch and vehicle. Check the owners manual for your CR-V because I am fairly certain that the tongue weight capacity is only 150 pounds despite...

This hitch has a tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs, you will need to consult the owners manual of the CR-V to determine what Honda recommends as the tongue weight capacity and be sure not to exceed the lower of the two figures.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2014 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home

On the 521567-1 base plates the arms insert into the receivers and you twist them to the proper position. Once connected to a tow bar they cannot rotate out. On base plates RM-521567-4 the arms also go in and twist but there is also a pin that holds them in place. Other than that everything else is the same.

The issue is that the Hullavator requires the crossbars to extend out past the side rails (or feet on aftermarket roof racks) 4 to 8 inches. The factory rack on the CR-V has crossbars that end right at the rails. For a load-assist kayak carrier that will work on your CR-V you can use the Thule Slipstream, # TH887XT. I have included a link to a video review of the carrier for...

  • How to Repair Damaged Drivers-Side Mirror on 2014 Honda CRV EXL
  • The most cost-effective option I can recommend to you for repairing the broken glass on your 2014 CR-V's driver-side mirror is a product from CIPA, their Cut-and-Stick Acrylic Replacement Mirror # CM01100. This item is a 7 x 10-inch sheet of flexible acrylic mirror that includes an adhesive backing. You simply cut it to shape to match your existing mirror's glass and press on to install. At this time we do not have custom-fit replacement mirror components for your CR-V so this general-application...

  • No Running Lights After Installing Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • It could possibly be the ground wire on the wiring harness on your 2014 Honda CR-V. Make sure it is attached to a clean bare metal non-painted or coated surface. It could also be a fuse. The harness comes with a small 7.5 amp fuse and if that is not installed or is blown then that could be the problem as well. To test to see if the harness is the problem use a circuit tester such as # 3808. Test the wires going into the converter box from the vehicle. When the vehicle running lights...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2014 Honda CR-V with Fleetwood Bounder
  • For base plates to flat tow your 2014 Honda CR-V, I recommend going with Roadmaster base plates # 521567-1, which are a fit for all models except those with a brushguard or extra bumper trim package. For a compatible tow bar I recommend the Falcon 2, # RM-520. This is a popular option for CR-V owners. You will also need some safety cables like # RM-643. In addition to the above items you will also need to get a lighting system. I recommend a simple magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A because...

  • How Does Height of Trailer Ball Figure Into Calculating Rise/Drop of Ball Mount
  • No, because you're measuring from the underside (bottom) of the coupler, most of the ball will be inside the coupler anyway, so the height of the ball isn't really relevant. The measurement method we provide is what the hitch manufacturers recommend, so that's what we go with. Ideally, the trailer tongue will be exactly level, but that won't always be possible. Being within 1-2 inches is fine, and if you have to choose between being tongue-high or tongue-low, go with tongue-high.

  • Bike Carrier Recommendations for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The Yakima KingPin bike rack # Y02441 is a great option for your 2014 Honda CR-V. You will need to have either a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver or a higher Class hitch with a 2 inch receiver for the bike rack to fit. It will not work with Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers. There should be a sticker on the hitch that lists the Class it is. Or if you can tell me the capacity of the trailer hitch that would help determine its Class. If it is a factory trailer hitch it...

  • How to Carry a Kayak on a 2014 Honda CR-V without a Roof Rack
  • You have a couple of options to carry the kayak on the roof of your 2014 Honda CR-V. First, if you don't want to spend a lot of money I recommend a foam block kit, # SR5525. The blocks set on the vehicle roof and the kayak will rest on the blocks. You will use the included straps to tie down the bow and stern and to secure everything to the vehicle by routing 2 of the straps through the interior of the vehicle. The other option is to install a roof rack and use a carrier on the new rack....

  • Will Roadmaster Even Brake Tow Bar Braking System # RM-9400 Fit Seat on 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The Roadmaster Even Brake Tow Bar Braking System # RM-9400 includes adjustable feet and an adjustable seat brace that moves up and down for a perfect fit on virtually any car. The Even Brake offers nearly universal application on most any car with power brakes - with or without ABS. Safe and legal flat towing requires a number of components in addition to the supplementary braking system. A tow bar, base plates, safety cables, and a wiring/lighting solution are also needed.

  • Can Blue Ox Kargard II Towed Vehicle Protector # BX88255 Install on Blue Ox 2-Inch Drop Bar
  • The Blue Ox Kargard II Towed Vehicle Protector # BX88255 that you referenced is designed to attach to the triple lug bolts on the Aventa LX tow bar, but not to the drop receiver. The other end attaches to the motor home bumper as shown in the linked photo from the Blue Ox website. The small gap between the Kargard II and the motor home will not be a concern for debris. This small gap would require that any road debris travel straight up in order to make it through this small space. Moving...

  • Powering a Supplemental Braking System on 2014 Honda CR-V Without Draining Battery
  • I spoke with my Hopkins representative about your concerns. I was told that you can use a 12-volt outlet kit, part # RM-9332 installed under the dash to provide power for your Brake Buddy. You can wire the outlet directly to the vehicle battery, or into the 12-volt accessory circuit coming from the 7-way trailer connector on the motorhome. I was told that you should be fine wiring directly to the battery as long as you start the towed vehicle every few hours. I've linked you to some...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV
  • For a similar trunk rack to the Raceway # TH9001XT that is confirmed to fit your 2014 Honda CR-V you would want the Saris Bones part # SA805. I checked with Thule and the # TH9001PRO is not confirmed as a fit for your vehicle. You will also need the # SA3035 as it is required to replace lower hooks or place lower hooks inside trunk (details in the instruction manual) If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested...

  • Benefits of Using the Thule Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # TH02230K55
  • The largest benefit to using the Thule Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, # TH02230K55, is the fact that it is the only chains which leave your wheels untouched. The tire chain strictly sits on the tire tread to avoid damage your vehicle's rims. In addition these chains offer a self-centering, self-tensioning system and steel tensioning springs to create a perfect fit even on worn tires. Having recently completed a training session on tire chains here at etrailer, I can tell you...

  • Reasonably Priced Roof Rack Recommendation for 2014 Honda CR-V
  • Your least expensive (but still high quality) option would be a Euro style square crossbar rack from Rhino Rack which would be constructed of the # DS1375B crossbar/foot combo and the # DK284 vehicle specific clamp kit. The clamps install in the top of the door jamb over the front and back doors, and don't require side rails. If you prefer a more aerodynamic looking crossbar, Rhino Rack offers a rack system that uses an Vortex Aero crossbar that would consist of the crossbar in black,...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V Naked Roof
  • The # TH400XT footpack that you mentioned has been replaced by the Thule Traverse Load bars # TH480 or # TH480R. Thule stopped offering fit information for the # TH400XT a few years ago so there are no confirmed fit kits that would allow you to use that foot pack on your 2015 Honda CR-V. You should still be able to reuse your square Thule Crossbars like the part # THLB50 that is recommended for your CR-V. However, you will still need to replace the foot pack and the fit kit. For...

  • If Taillights of Vehicle are Bypassed for Tow Bar Wiring is a Brake Light Relay Required
  • If the taillights of your 2014 Honda CRV are not being used in conjunction with your tow bar wiring then you would not need to use a brake light relay. Since they are being bypassed a brake light relay like part # RM-88400 would not be needed.

  • Yes, the RoadMaster Falcon 2 Combo Towing Kit, # RM-9243-1, will work for your 2014 Honda CR-V being towed by your 2014 Thor Windsport, however you will need a few additional parts to complete the wiring. In addition to the towing kit you will also need the Vehicle to Vehicle Taillight Converter, # 118158, two additional Hy-Power Diodes, # RM-792, and the FuseMaster Fuse Bypass, # RM76511. If you still need a supplemental braking system, I recommend taking a look at the Roadmaster...

  • Roof Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2015 Honda CRV EX-L with Factory Crossbars
  • Since your crossbar spread is wider than what the # RMCB can fit you will need to get the # RMCB02 instead since it can fit crossbar spreads of 25-44 inches and would work great on yours. This basket will also fit the dimensions of your crossbars as well. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Base Plate Kit Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CR-V
  • The correct base plate kit for your 2014 Honda CR-V that would be compatible with your Roadmaster Sterling Tow Bar part # RM-576 would be the # 521567-1. The round tubes that are on this base plate kit are only for the attachment point between the arms of the base plate and the crossbar of it. The attachment point for the kit from the tow bar to the base plate kit will be made through a set of quick disconnects like what came with your Sterling. The crossbar of the tow bar attaches to...

  • The 2014 Honda CRV comes with factory installed crossbars, flush rails and a naked roof. It sounds like you are purchasing a 2014 Honda CRV EX-L with flush mounted rails that run front to back. I recommend the Thule roof rack system: Thule Square Load Bars # THLB50 Podium Foot Pack # TH460 Fit Kit # THKIT3118 The mounting hardware for the Frontier cargo box will work with the square crossbars As for clearance, at 88 inches long, your cargo box is one of Thule's longer boxes....

  • We do offer some canoe carriers that may work for your 2014 Honda CR-V. Since you are having issues with the canoe being too wide for your current roof rack, I recommend the Swagman Exo Aero Rooftop Carrier System with Tie-Downs, part # S65145. The carrier is designed to hold 1 kayak or 1 canoe hull-side down, and is designed to fit most crossbars up to 2-1/2 inches wide. The minimum crossbar spread to accommodate this system is 24 inches.
