Installation

T-One Connection Location Points

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in your rear cargo area.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in an out-of-the-way location within your cargo area.


It is recommended that you use a small amount of grease on all electrical connections - the plug on your automobile and the 4-pole connector itself - to help prevent corrosion.


Circuit-Protected Tail Light Converter

A tail light converter is built into this T-One connector. Because most trailers run on a two-wire system - wherein the brake and turn signals are carried on one wire - the separate brake and turn signals from your vehicle's three-wire system need to be combined so they are compatible with the wiring system of your trailer. The tail light converter combines the brake and turn signal functions of your automobile so that they run on one wire to properly activate your trailer's tail lights. Note: This will not affect how the tail lights on your vehicle operate.


This converter safeguards itself and your vehicle against possible electrical shorts and overloads with integrated short circuit protection. Just install the connector as indicated and rest assured that the wiring system of your vehicle will remain feedback-free.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - Trailer Hitch Wiring - 118427 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number 118427. This is the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, with a Four Pole Flat Trailer Connector. This unit's going to be from Tow Ready. It's designed to fit 2007 to 2011 Honda CRVs. It's going to provide your four way flat trailer connector at the back of your vehicle. This is designed to power your trailer's signal lights.

Now, this connector is compatible with five pole, six pole, and seven pole adapters. If you need one of those and don't have one, you can find those here on our website at etrailer.com. The benefit of a system like this is, one, you're going to be able to add the four way flat connector to your vehicle. This system connects very quickly and easily. You don't have to worry about cutting or splicing any wires. All you have to do is locate the connection point in your rear cargo area.

The plug here, on the other end of the connector, is going to match up perfectly with the plug on the vehicle. They simply just plug into each other, and they snap together for a nice, tight, secure connection. Once you have the connector plugged in, you'll then need to mount your ground wire. It's going to come with the self-tapping screw to get that mounted. That's the white wire with the ring terminal attached to it, and you'll need to find a good mounting location for the taillight converter.

It's got a mounting hole right here, so that way you can install the other included self-tapping screw. Get that secured to a nice location. The circuit protected taillight converter is designed to ensure that your vehicle's wiring matches that of your trailer's. It's going to provide protection against electrical shorts and overloads. This unit's constructed of 16 gauge bonded wire. You can see here with the four way flat connector, I've got it all bundled up.

It's going to give us plenty of length when it comes to the wiring, to reach out the back of the vehicle and make our connection. Once your installation is complete, the four way flat connectors are going to be stowed in an out of the way location within the rear cargo area. Also here on the four way flat connector, it's got the dust cap attached to it. That way, we can cover up the connection points when the connector's not being used. When it comes to the maximum amperage for the stop and turn lights, we're looking at 2.1 amps per circuit. For the taillights, we're looking at 5 amps per circuit. The custom fit T-One connector is going to plug into your vehicle's wiring harness. Again, that's going to be located behind the driver's side interior trim panel in the rear cargo area. Once your installation is complete, we're always going to recommend that you use a small amount of dielectric grease on all the electrical connections. That's going to help prevent corrosion from being able to settle in to any of the connection points. It's going to come with very detailed instructions. These are going to walk you through the installation process step by step. In the hardware kit, you're going to get a zip tie, as well as two self-tapping screws. The zip tie is designed to secure any excess or slack in the wiring and keep it nice and organized, and it makes for an overall cleaner appearance for your installation. That's going to do it for our review of part number 118427. This is the Tow Ready T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, with a Four Pole Flat Trailer Connector, designed for the 2007 to 2011 Honda CRV. .

I just installed the hitch and wiring harness this morning. It went in without too much difficulty. The only change I would make to the installation instructions would be to improve removing and reinstalling the muffler rubber isolator hangers. The outside isolator is straight forward just remove isolator from muffler pin let isolator connected to the frame pin. The inside isolator pin I had to remove from the frame pin first. I could not get it off the muffler pin until the muffler was dropped down then I could remove the isolator hanger from the muffler pin. Note, install the inside muffler isolator hanger back onto the frame pin before bolting the hitch in place. Just not enough room to get the inside isolator back on the frame pin after the hitch is installed. The spacing between the hitch cutout and the frame pin is too close to get the isolator back on the frame pin. See the two photos I have attached below. 66958

Hitch and T-One harness came today. Everything went extremely well. Good instructions/videos online. From reading previous reviews, I knew I would have to run a tap through the threaded portions of the frame. Holes in hitch were slotted just enough allow easy fit up, no prying, no straining. Did the job by myself. Got the "follow up email" from Etrailer.com this afternoon. Follow up email has a link to click and give feedback. Very good service. Highly recommend! Trent 380743

Great solid Hitch for the 2011 CR-V. Installation of the hitch took about 20 mins. See the on-line video for details on the installation, this way you'll save time and guesswork. Same for the wire harness. That took 20 minutes or less. You'll need to drill a hole for the ground wire and another one to hold the actual unit but, again, saw the video and, despite a couple of differences (expected when products are revised/updated), everything went smoothly. 415539

After purchasing this hitch and wiring kit for a 2010 Honda CRV I was pleased to receive the follow-up, informing me that the order had been processed and shipped. This vendor's customer service is the best I've had the pleasure to experience for any online purchase ....bar-none! Shipping was followed up and very informative also. It arrived on time and intact via UPS! The online install information and video was right on the money. This had to be the easiest of any hitch and wire kit I have ever installed, and I have probably designed, built, or modified 20-30 hitches in my many years of custom car and motorcycle building, racing, R/V-ing, towing and farming! I look forward to doing business again soon . Thanks!! ......Frank Lyons 70052

After owning this hitch for more than 1 year and having used it to tow small trailers and a couple of personal water craft for many mile I have to say this is a quality hitch and electrical set-up! Thanks again for the excellent customer service!! ...Frank Lyons

Just what I needed. Had to chase the treads with a tap. Wire brushing just wasn't adequate. Great job on your website and the videos on the electrical hookup hardware was very helpful. I actually purchased a different one than i had in the shopping cart after watching the video. Thanks Ken 681322

The wiring harness arrived in a timely manner, fit perfectly and was easy to install due to excellent instructions and the video I watched before I even ordered it. Some folks think it's silly that the wiring runs out the CR-V rear door opening during use, but I use a trailer so infrequently (a few times a year) that it is more important to me that the wiring is out of the elements when not in use. I prefer this type of hookup because I've seen what salty winter roads do to external trailer wiring. This setup will be better for my use. 677697

CR-V 2011 This one took us a good hour to install, first timers and all. We were too hasty screwing in the little ground screw forgetting to put the ground wire in between.... Try to remove that. It took time to undo that. The 2 little plastic "pop screws" into the rear trim panel broke when I tried to pry them off, however they were still reusable. I wish the tutorial video would have been a little clearer on the 'how to'. It was a bit scary to remove the trim paneling, hoping we would not break off tabs etc. We tried the light harness and all the lights worked on the trailer. We will not use the harness a lot, so to have it like this (hanging out the rear door when in use) is okay with us. When not in use it is stored in the spare wheel compartment. 522728

Seems fine. No sticky adhesive patch, though, that the video mentions. comes with screws to mount instead. Doesn't bother me, but then again, if you're not comfortable with that, you may have to find some industrial grade double-stick tape. 497750

Not an easy install but if I can do it, anyone can. One tip I'll pass along. I had no way of testing it after the install. I purchased a gizmo that plugs into the harness and tells you if all is OK. It's about 3 bucks or so and I found it very useful. 472925

Everything worked as shown in the video. I'm not that good with working with interior panels and I did break a few of the plastic panel plugs but was able to get the trailer lights working. Best advice is to take it slow and having one of those panel screw driver type tools would have made the task a lot easier and faster. With that said, I'm very pleased with etrailer and there products (trailer hitch and wiring harnes) - Excellence product. 453815

This hitch was a very easy install on my 2009 Honda CRV. It was shipped wicked fast and other than some paint scrapes from shipping was in perfect shape. It installs very easily. Video and written instructions are awesome. My Honda is pretty old and the weld nuts were quite rusted. Do yourself a favor and invest in a M10x1.25 thread tap to clean the weld nuts of rust. While the hitch is a cinch to install cleaning the weld nuts can be quite frustrating. The wiring harness is plug and play but again, getting the trim panels off takes some care and patience. It's all very doable for anyone with a reasonable DIY skill set. It's a very clean install at a fraction of what a dealer would charge. etrailer is a great company to do business with. The internet at its best. 447534

I bought this for a 2010 Honda CR-V. Installation was straightforward - pop a few trim clips, unscrew a few screws and plug into the connector, which was right where they said it should be. All functions worked properly with a voltmeter test. The wire to the connector is just barely long enough to reach the end of the hitch receiver. Six more inches would go a long way to making this ideal. 412369

Great product and fast shipping. No damage to the box and very easy instructions. I even watched the videos a few times. I had no issues except the box did not contain the hex nuts needed for the U bolt. Called customer service and it was taken care of right away. I was so excited to install, I went to local auto shop and purshcaed the correct nuts. I do wish it came with a wire brush to clean the holes the bolts went in but picked up a set. Works great and looks great on my CR-V. I would recommend and buy from again. Great job etrailer. Great product and great prices. I never have to borrow A truck again to haul. 387604

  • Hidden Hitch With 2 Inch Receiver for 2009 Honda CR-V
  • We have the exact part you need, though it is just under a different name. The Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 75547 is simply the Hidden Hitch 87440 with a different name; this is a Class III, 2-inch hitch that is a confirmed fit for your 2009 Honda CR-V. It is a complete bolt-on installation that does not require any drilling into your CR-V's frame; I've added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a '09 CR-V for you to take a look at.

You can see this process in the attached install video. Then in order to convert this 4-way into a 7-way I recommend using the Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole part # 37185 because it has a mounting bracket and both 4 and 7-way trailer connection points.

For your 2008 Honda CR-V I would recommend you get a Class III hitch like the Hidden Hitch Trailer Hitch # 87440, as this hitch has higher towing capacities so it could tow your PWC trailer and if you decide to pull a heavier trailer down the road you would be able to that as well.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Trailer Wiring Harness for 2007 Honda CR-V.
  • The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2007 Honda CR-V is the Curt Class III Round Tube Trailer Receiver Hitch # 13555. With a 2 inch hitch receiver, this trailer hitch will accept a wide variety of hitch accessories and ball mounts. This trailer hitch has a bolt-on installation that requires not welding or drilling. You will want to check your owner's manual for the towing capacity of your CR-V. Based on my research, the 2007 CR-V has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. I have attached...

  • Recommended Parts to Tow Pop-Up Camper with 2011 Honda CR-V
  • In order to tow a small pop-up camper with your 2011 Honda CR-V you will need a trailer hitch, wiring harness, and a ball mount/hitch ball combo. All pricing information will be listed on the product pages for the options I recommend. Starting with the trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III # 75547 for an easy bolt-on installation and robust capacities that indicate its superior strength. I have attached an installation video that you can also follow along with if you decide...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for 2008 Honda CR-V
  • I would need to know which trailer hitch you have on your 2015 Honda CR-V to confirm, however the Draw-Tite # 75742 and Curt # C13119 are only a confirmed fit from years 2012-2016 so the model years most likely are not compatible. For your 2008 Honda CR-V, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 75547. This hitch is a confirmed fit for that model year and I've attached an installation video to assist. This hitch is designed to allow for the Tow Ready J-Pin Stabilization...

  • Hitch, Trailer Wiring and Ball Mount Recommendation for a 2010 Honda CR-V
  • I can definitely help. The Curt Hitch part # 13555 has been confirmed to fit your 2010 Honda CR-V so that is a great place to start. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag. If...

  • What Is Needed To Install The Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness # 118427 On A 2010 Honda CR-V
  • The Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118427, will plug into the white trailer tow plug on your 2010 Honda CR-V, located behind the drivers side rear interior trim panel. You will also need to attach the white ground wire on the wiring harness to the vehicles existing ground stud or another suitable grounding point. You will not have to do anything with the fuses under the hood of your 2010 Honda CR-V. That will be all that is needed to install the Tow Ready wiring harness to your...

  • After Installing Trailer Wiring Harness on a 2011 Honda CR-V Vehicle Running Lights Stopped Working
  • It does sound like it is a fuse but we need to figure out what caused the fuse to blow in the first place. Otherwise this problem will just keep happening. First, to verify that it is a fuse, you can use the owners manual and/or the legend on the power distribution box lid to find the fuse location. Leave the harness unplugged when you change the fuse. If the running lights on the 2011 CR-V start working then we know that there was a short somewhere that caused the fuse to blow. Check...

  • Are there Locking Tabs on the Trailer Wiring Harness Connector for a 2007 Honda CR-V
  • There are at least 3 locking tabs on the connector on the trailer wiring harness # 118427. I have included a picture that shows them. You may need a small flat head screwdriver to pry and release the tabs so you can unplug the old connector.

  • Trailer Wiring and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2011 Honda CR-V
  • The Tow Ready Wiring Harness part # 118427 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2011 Honda CR-V and DOES include a taillight converter. You would not need to purchase a converter separately. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. For...

  • Towing Capacity and Recommended Towing Equipment for 2010 Honda CR-V
  • You're correct. Even though the Draw-Tite Class III hitch # 75547 has a 4500 lb towing capacity, you'll be limited to the capacity of the lowest rated towing component, which in this case would be the 1500 lb towing capacity stated by Honda. The towing capacity of the vehicle will always be the final word on the capacity of the towing system. Since it sounds as if you're considering towing with the vehicle you also need a few other items to complete your towing system: Trailer Wiring...

  • Wiring 2006 Honda CR-V for Towing Trailer With Brakes
  • For starters, you'll need to determine if your CR-V is capable of towing the trailer you're planning on using. In my research, I found that the CR-V has a 1500 lb towing capacity, so the trailer you want to tow will need to weight less than that. I'd urge you to consult your owner's manual or your Honda dealer to confirm that capacity for yourself. If you're wanting to tow a trailer equipped with electric brakes, you'll need to install a brake controller. I'd recommend a proportional...

  • Parts Needed to Wire a 2010 Honda CR-V With Diodes for Flat Towing Behind a Motor Home
  • In order to wire a vehicle for lights to be flat towed, you have a couple of options. However, you will not be able to use the vehicles wiring harness as it does not accept input signals. Instead, you can wire the vehicle with diodes. There are 2 ways in which to wire a vehicle that has a 3 wire system like your 2010 Honda CR-V. It can wired to works as a 2 wire system, or it can be wired to run as a 3 wire system. In either case, you will need Roadmaster Universal Hy-Power Diode Wiring...

  • Towing Capacity of 2011 Honda CR-V and Parts Needed to Tow
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of your 2011 Honda CR-V and it says that the "maximum allowable weight of the trailer and everything in or on it must not exceed 1,500 lbs" so that would be the most a trailer and all its cargo can weigh. If you do find a camper with a GVWR of 1,500 lbs or less you could tow it but would need to start with a trailer hitch and I highly recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 75547 because it is a no-drill installation and the company has a strong reputation...

  • Trailer Hitch and Ball Mount for 2007 Honda CR-V
  • I can help you figure out exactly what you will need on your 2007 Honda CR-V to get your daughter home. First, Curt hitch # 13555 is a fit for your 2007 Honda CR-V and would be a good choice. This is a no-drill install that should be straightforward; I've added a link to a video of this hitch being installed on a '07 CR-V as well as the installation instructions for you to check out which should help determine if it's something you feel comfortable doing. In terms of the note that says...

  • Trailer Hitch, Bike Rack, and Wiring Recommendation for 2010 Honda CR-V
  • I recommend the Class III Draw-Tite Hitch, # 75547, for your 2010 Honda CR-V. A Class III hitch provides more versatility with its 2 inch receiver opening. This hitch has a gross trailer weight capacity of 4,500 pounds and a tongue weight capacity of 675 pounds. Just a reminder, you will want to follow the weight limitations of the component with the lowest rating. This would include the towing capacity of your Honda or any accessory that you mount in the hitch. If you are interested...

  • Installation Instructions for T- Connector Trailer Harness on a Honda CRV
  • The connection point is located behind the interior trim panel in the cargo area on the driver side. The 4-pole trailer connector will be stowed inside the cargo area of the vehicle. You will need to open the rear door of the vehicle and temporarily remove the rear threshold, cargo net and cargo cover to allow access of the rear interior trim panel on the driver side (it may be helpful to fold rear seat forward). Carefully pull back the interior trim panel on driver side. Then locate the...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Left Turn Signal and Brake Lights On 2009 Honda CR-V
  • First thing you should do at this point is test the 4-way of the wiring harness with a circuit tester part # PTW2993 for voltage on all of the right pins when the taillight signals are being applied. Just like in the video I attached. If the voltage checks out there but the trailer lights still don't function right then the problem is on the trailer wiring. That would mean that problem is either due to a ground issue or a short issue. Make sure that the trailer side and vehicle side...

  • Brake Controller Recommendations and Installation on 2010 Honda CR-V
  • The first thing I'd recommend you do is check with your owner's manual or with Honda to ensure that the CR-V has sufficient towing capacity to tow the camper. If you get the green light, I'd recommend the Tekonsha Primus, part # TK90160. The controller is easy to use, is reasonably priced yet reliable, and provides safe and predictable braking. To install the controller on your CR-V, you'll need a functional 4-pole trailer connector, which would be provided by installing the Tow Ready...

  • Curt Class III Trailer Hitch and Wiring for a 2011 Honda CR-V
  • There is only 1 Curt Class III trailer hitch for your 2011 Honda CR-V and it is # 13555. You will not have to cut, trim, or drill anything for installation. It isn't all that hidden though but then again none of the available hitches for your CR-V are hidden. If you plan on doing some towing I recommend etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball,...

  • Where is the Trailer Harness Connector Located on a 2007 Honda CRV in Guatemala
  • It is possible that a Honda CRV sold in Guatemala will have different wiring, but I am not familiar with vehicles sold outside of the U.S. and Canada. What I can do is tell you where the connector should be located, whether or not it is there could be dependent on where the vehicle was sold. The connector is behind the access panel on the left side of the vehicle. I have included a link to a video of an installation of this part in a 2008 CRV so you can see how he did it.

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Light Malfunctions on a 2009 Honda CR-V
  • From what I understand, at first, none of the lights worked. Now, with a trailer connected and the running lights on, you get a hot signal with every connection. First, you will have to disconnect the trailer to do some testing. Start by using a circuit tester to test the wires going in to the converter. Test each function separately. Turn signals, tail lights and stop lights. If these are all correct, move on to the wires coming out of the converter. Test each function again for these...
