Tekonsha Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring - 118741

Installation

This custom-fit T-One connector plugs into your vehicle's wiring harness, which is located in your rear cargo area, behind the driver's-side interior trim panel. Once you've plugged in the T-connector, open the fuse compartment beneath the driver's-side dash. Locate the fuse position indicated in the instructions, then insert the included fuse.


Once installation is complete, the 4-way flat connector will be stowed in your rear cargo area.


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


ModuLite Powered Tail Light Converter

A ModuLite power module 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. This power module functions as a tail light converter to combine 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.


With a ModuLite, your trailer's lights will be powered without overloading your vehicle's electrical system. Because the module draws power directly from your car's battery and bypasses the electrical routes that are used by a basic wiring harness, there is virtually no draw on your tail light circuits.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness Installation - 2018 Honda CR-V

Speaker 1: Today on this 2018 Honda CR-V we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install a Tekonsha T-One vehicle wiring harness with a four-pole flat trailer connector, part number 118741.Here's what your wiring harness looks like installed. Now, the reason you're gonna want a four-pole flat wiring harness like this is that this gives you the ability to safely and legally tow a trailer by having the necessary lighting functions that are required by law. This wire here with the white stripe, that is our ground wire, and that will provide the necessary ground connection between our CR-V and our trailer. This wire here with the brown stripe, that is our taillight and running light circuit. And on that circuit we have a total power output of 7.5 amps, which is more than sufficient to tow a small trailer with several incandescent light bulbs or as many LEDs as we want, because they do draw less power.This wire here with the yellow stripe, that's our left turn signal and left brake light, this wire here with the green stripe, that is our right turn signal and right brake light. Now, on each one of these wires we have a total power output of five amps per side, which is more than sufficient to tow a trailer with three or four incandescent light bulbs on each side or, again, as many LEDs as we want.One nice feature about this wiring harness is that it does have a dust cover to help better protect it when it's not in use.

Now, one thing you can do for even added protection is put a little dielectric grease inside a connector. This will just better protect it against any corrosion. And you can close the dust cover back over it.One nice thing about this wiring harness is that we do have plenty of length to get down next to the receiver on our hitch. Now, when this is not in use it can be stored inside of our vehicle, up out of the way and out of the elements. Simply open our hatch, lift up on our spare tire cover, and place it inside, close it.

It's like it's not even there. When you want to use it, you want to take your wire, lay it over your weatherstripping here flat, away from your latch for your hatch, that way it won't get pinched when you close it. And as you close the hatch, it'll seal over the weatherstripping and be ready to use.Now, when comparing the Tekonsha wiring harness that we have installed to another option that's available at our website, the Curt wiring harness, we did notice one major difference between the two. The Curt wiring harness does have less power output. It's only rated for three amps per side for the turn signals and brake lights, and on our taillight circuit we only have six amps of power output.

So we get extra power with the Tekonsha, which means we can run more lights safely on our trailer, also if we own an older trailer that has incandescent lights over LEDs, the extra power might make it easier for us to tow that.Many of our customers have stated that they found difficulty in installing this. And it can be a little intimidating at first, but we'll show you several tricks to get around the difficulties of it to make it easier for you to do.To begin our install we're gonna open our rear hatch. Now we'll take out our cargo cover, now our lower threshold here, we're gonna remove this by pulling up on it. Now our upper threshold, we're gonna remove this one as well. To do that, just grab it and pull straight down.

Okay, on our driver's side panel here, behind the latch that folds down the rear seat, we need to remove this panel. To do that, we'll just take a flat head screwdriver, press down on this tab, pull it forward, and we can lift it out. Behind that cover we'll find two Phillips screws that we need to remove.Now our lower cargo hook, we need to remove this. In order to do that we'll open it partially. At the bottom of it there's a light plastic clip. If we press in on that clip we can pull out at the same time.Okay, now our side panels here, we need to pull these away from the driver's side. We'll start with the top one and we'll use our plastic trim panel tools to help remove them. Once we have it started I can grab by hand and start to pull it back.Okay, as we pull back our panels, we have an unoccupied connector that's white in color right behind the upper panel. This is where our factory tow package is, and this is where we'll plug in our harness to. Okay, we've pulled our connector out a little bit so we can see it better. We'll take our end, line up the tabs, we'll push it in so it clicks into place.Okay, this white wire here with the ring terminal on it, this is our ground wire. We need to attach this to the vehicle's sheet metal in order to ground our harness. There's a factory ground point right here, so if we remove that 10-millimeter bolt we can place the ring terminal around the bolt and reinstall the bolt.And that's what it looks like properly grounded. We've gone ahead and secured up our module to a wiring harness here, using our provided zip ties. You can also use the double-sided tape that comes with it. Now we've routed our four-pole flat wiring out the bottom of our side panel here. With that done, we can reinstall all of our panels the same way they came out.Now we find ourselves in the passenger compartment on the vehicle, underneath the dash on the driver's side. If you look up at our fuse box, we need to make sure that there is a 15-amp fuse and it's third from the top right spot. This is for our factory tow package. If there's not one there, we can take our provided 15-amp fuse and install it in that position.And now we'll test out our wiring to ensure that it works properly. We're using a four-pole flat trailer tester, which we have available at our website as part number I26. Start by turning on our headlights. As you can see, our taillight and running light function's working. Now we'll do our left turn signal, and you see that one's working too. Check out our right now, that's working. Step on our brake pedal, brake parts are working. And with our foot on the brake we'll run through our turn signals again. Perfect. Everything's working like it's supposed to.And that completes our look at and showing you how to install the Tekonsha T-One vehicle wiring harness with a four-pole flat trailer connector, part number 118741 on this 2018 Honda CR-V.

I was surprised to hear from George who has followed my purchase a year ago for this wiring harness. I had no luck trying to purchase a 2017 Honda CR-V wiring Harness. After an exhaustive search online I found etrailer.com, they had clear step by step instructions on how to install the harness so I knew it was the right one. I have towed a rental trailer over long distances and have had no issues with my wiring harness in summer, smoke, snow and harsh winter weather. Visibility is extremely important for both vehicle and trailer so as with other customers I would highly recommend etrailer.com for a quality purchase. 498809

I ordered the products by telephone. The person at etrailer was very easy to deal with and the ordering process went quite smoothly. Hitch and wiring harness arrived quickly as promised. Videos were invaluable in showing how to install. The wiring harness is somewhat difficult to hook into the existing wiring due to the close quarters behind the panels, so be patient with this hook up process. Otherwise, the hitch installation went smoothly and was installed just like the video explained. The hitch looks very good on my wife's CRV. She is happy and I am happy with how it looks. Thanks. I will use etrailer in the future when our family needs a new hitch or accessories. 514537

Product was delivered promptly and was well packaged. Installation was fairly simple according to the online instructions. Use a crowbar to pop the exhaust system holders off and let it drop as much as it will. Use a strap to support the pipe near the rear axle to keep it from hanging loose. I used a piece of stiff wire to hold the center of the hitch in place while I worked on installing the nits and bolts in each end of it. Space is limited so getting a torque wrench on the end nuts is quite difficult but can be done. You may find you a 3" to 6" riser on your hitch ball mount to keep your trailer level as the receiver sits pretty low. The wiring adapter wasn't difficult to install after I was able to determine how to remove the interior panels. Remove the top and bottom lift gate threshold covers and the plastic cover behind the rear seat s and the cargo hooks. Also remove the rear door threshold on the drivers side. This will make getting the lower rear side panel out to get access to the upper rear side panel. You don't have to completely remove the upper side panel to complete the install. So you can stay away from the airbag pin at the front top of the upper side panel. Everything worked after the install. I am highly satisfied. Check etrailer web site and YouTube videos for additional install hints and how to's for your install. I use the hitch to mount a bike rack, a cargo carrier, and to pull a kayak trailer depending on what my needs are at the time. 363024

The install went pretty smoothly. The video explains the process clearly. Be careful lining up the clips with the holes when snapping the trim back into place. I bent (nearly broke) a couple of the clips at first. You have to pull the panels with quite a bit of force to pop the clips free from the body. The video instructs you to drill a hole in the metal body for the ground connection. I realized after doing this that the ground wire may be long enough to connect to an existing screw in the sheet metal. Drilling the hole isn't terribly difficult, but space is limited for your drill, so it would nice to use a nearby screw. Overall, it was a pretty smooth installation. 386200

The instructional video's were excellent. It took one person a little over an hour to install the hitch. Didn't even raise the car up. It took another hour to install the wiring. 450155

Great harness that does what it should. I would give Honda 2 starts for making it such a pain to get a man size hand into tight spaces to retrieve the wiring connector. Trying to get my hands around the connector in the car and cut the tape that held it in there was the toughest part. Once you have that connector pulled lose, the rest of the job takes minutes. 572357

installed this on my 2018 Honda CRV. Installation went just like it was shown on the video. However, I could not reach the 10mm bolt to install the ground wire. I did not have a self taping metal screw. ...so have self taping screw handy. I followed a fellow review's advice and routed the 4 wires through the rubber plug (left side of the spare tire wheel well). It involved cutting and soldering of the wires.... But it was worth the extra time to have a professional looking installation. 520022


Comments

This T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 4-Pole flat does require a self tapping screw that does not come with the kit. Part # FA1131822 should work well to install the ground wire.

I just finished installing this hitch on my 2017 Honda CR-V. This hitch, wiring harness and wire plug mounting bracket ROCK! The instruction video was spot on down to the last detail. I fed the wire plug thru a plug hole in the spare wheel well by grinding a small notch in the hole. Cut the plug to fit the wire and sealed with silicone. The hitch fits like a glove and is perfect for me to pull my popup trailer. This was made easy by the video and expertly engineered hitch etc. I will use etrailer again and again! Great stuff, shipped right away, packaged perfectly, support was outstanding. 501289

Product great. Install IS HARD AND FRUSTRATING! And I'm still not finished - have cut the tape but need some help from smaller hands to connect. Couple of points: you do need to really push back on the top panel to get your hands in there at all. The connector itself is taped to an adjacent connector with brown tape - it almost looks like the white connector is encased in brown plastic but poking it a bit reveals it is tape and must be cut - force your way in with a pair of scissors. Someone else mentioned removing the green connectors from the loose body panels before really trying to squeeze in - that's a good idea as I lost one or two while pulling/pushing and squeezing hands in. The video is misleading - it is much harder than that makes it look (etrailer should mention this) but the product is fine and etrailer provides great service. This is for a 2017 CRV Touring. Good Luck! 480708

This review is for the install only. I have not hooked up to a trailer yet to test the light system under load. If you read the actual Honda instructions they have you take most of the back of the CRV apart. This would have been hours of work. Instead, this install has you loosen a couple panels and work in a very tight space. If you have small hands and some good lighting, it is MUCH faster than the Honda way. As I got the panels loose, I used small 2x4 blocks to hold the panels open. You need some good lighting to see behind the panels once they are pried back. My biggest challenge was to get the binding tape off the connector that was way back and almost out of reach. Just getting that connector free of tape and making a solid connection with the trailer electronics took more time than the rest of the installation. The second challenge was getting a good ground for the system. The instruction paper shows hooking it up to an existing ground but on my CRV I could hardly see that connection and there was no way to reach it without risking damage by bending the trim panels too far. The instructional video shows putting a self-tapping screw into sheet metal behind the trim and using that for the ground, and that is the option I chose. Except no screw is included. I found an appropriate sheet metal screw in one of my several coffee cans of spare screws but I had to drill a small starter hole first. I have a small drill that worked well but a big drill would be a tight fit. I am a bit concerned because the video recommended a location that is thin sheet metal and I did not dare tighten the ground screw very tight for fear of stripping it out. hopefully it will maintain a solid connection. Next was adhering the control module into a pocket where it was out of the way, and finally routing the trailer wire into the spare tire bin where it is stored. Putting the trim back in place was easy and there is no sign of the work that was done. My CRV already had the fuse in place so hopefully everything is ready. Next I will pick up a trailer cable tester to make certain I have good power to the plug. 569476

Product was good a worked as expected. Be careful removing plastic trim panels if you don’t remove the luggage hook you will bust it. I did not find any info about this in the how to video. Otherwise the all the instructions in the video were great. Took me about 1 hour from start to finish. 567964

Installed on a 2017 Honda CRV AWD. This was a very difficult installation. The video is helpful and it is not complicated, but it is very difficult. There is simply very little room to get to the factory connector and the grounding bolt. I pulled back the side trim as far as I could hoping to not damage the entire piece and it pushes back at you. Could have used a couple more hands just to pull the trim back with force while I worked on the connector and bolt. The video does not say that the factory connector is taped to the cable and had to be cut to free it and access the side to plug into. The bolt for ground is very difficult to get to with a nut driver or socket - you cannot easily position your tools at the right angle without bending deforming the trim piece with force. You can get a socket wrench in there without an extender but then there is no room to rotate the wrench. The video showed using an angled motorized socket tool for a good reason - however most people don't have access to such a specialized tool. The video does not show how to run the connector into the spare tire well area - I reached down behind the trim as far as possible and just pushed and pushed and finally got it through - again not easy. The video says there are double sided tape and zip ties included in the package. Mine had neither, so I used my own zip ties. Also be careful with all the plastic clips that hold all the trim pieces in place, these are just held with a head into a slot and can pop out easily. One of mine dropped into the recess of the car body and could not be retrieved. I had to make a trip to the auto parts store to buy a replacement. Not sure why Honda makes access to the factory connector so difficult. This was a very frustrating experience. 560566

I had the hitch painted to match the car. Installation was quick only taking about 30 minutes. The only issue I'm having is the sensor to open the lift gate won't work all the time now. 417051

Ordered this harness along with the DrawTite hitch #76128 and the 4 Hole Mounting Bracket #18144. Thanks to Ken K I was able to install the hitch with out help. I mounted the bracket on the welded mounting tab on the left side of the hitch tube. There is a grommet on the back left of the spare tire well for the factory wiring harness. Remove the plastic tail gate protector and pull back the insulation on the left rear corner to access it. You will have to cut the wire of the 4 pole connector about thee feet from the plug and later splice it back, I used some plug connectors for this. Make an X cut in the center of the grommet and feed the plug side of the wire through. I used some wire wrap on the external wire. Push the plug into the mounting bracket and using the screws and nuts provided mount unto the hitch tab. 391839

I installed the Draw-Tite 76128 Hitch, the 118741 wiring harness and the 18144 bracket to mount the wiring plug. You can route the plug through the hole that is provided for the factory hitch wiring (it will fit through, but it is tight) and use the bracket to clean up the install. It looks pretty sweet doing it this way. 398516

I am still very satisfied with the installation as well as the products. They were put to use about a month ago towing a trailer from Central Vermont to Southeast Ohio. That was about 800 miles and absolutely no trouble.

This harness works as expected once installed. The installation isn't horrible, but if you're uncomfortable popping plastic trim pieces loose in your car, it can be intimidating. You may have the plastic clips either break or pop out of the plastic trim and stay clipped into their mounting holes in the vehicle, which then necessitates your needing to pop them out by themselves and place them back in the plastic trim pieces, so you can snap everything back together when you're done. The instructions are OK, but the photos are not great. The installation video here on the web site does not match the written instructions completely. The instructions describe pulling the plastic panels out further to give you better access to the factory plug, as well as using a factory ground screw right next to the plug. The video shows barely pulling the panels out to reach the factory plug, and then supplying your own self-tapping ground screw and drilling it into the body of the vehicle. I chose to use the factory ground instead of drilling into my car. To access this area, you'll need to pull more clips to allow the plastic trim to be moved out of the way farther than the video shows. There is one part of the instructions that says to release a hook in the rear area that you need to depress a white clip. The picture is so poor that it appears to be pointing to the metal tie-down hook near the rear corner of the cargo area. I saw no white plastic clip there--because there isn't. The instructions are referring to the small, flip-down plastic hook about a third of the way up the driver's side rear corner of the cargo area, which looks like it's meant for hanging a plastic shopping bag from. If you flip the plastic hook about half way down, you'll see a white tab in the hook recess. You have to depress this with a screw driver or trim tool to release this hook from the body of the vehicle, allowing you to continue to pull the plastic trim out for installation of the harness. If you do not, you will break this plastic hook. Ask me how I know. Once you have pulled enough trim out to access the OEM plug and ground wire (which are right next to each other), installation is pretty easy. Route the wiring as you see fit, use the zip ties to secure the wiring behind the plastic trim, and mount the control box in a convenient spot. Just be careful not to drop any of the colored clips back in the recesses behind the trim panels. There's lots of room back there for them to hide. 366726

This was a very difficult install for me. Much more difficult than video made it appear. I have small hands, but could not reach the white plug with enough grasp to remove the tape. Certainly couldn't get 2 hands in as video showed. I finally had to use dental hooks to grasp and tear tape away. Then a dental hook to hold the plug while attaching the the end of the wiring harness. Appears to be working using a meter to test. If it doesn't work after hooking up a trailer i'll pay to have another wiring harness installed. Not something I would attempt again. 384776

I ordered the Draw Tite trailer hitch 36597 and the wiring harness 118741 for my 2017 Honda CRV. The trailer hitch was easy to install, I just used soapy water to lubricate the rubber exhaust hangers in order to move them. This can be easily cleaned off so the hangers don't remain slippery after install. The wiring was more difficult as it is tough to access the wire harness area. I used a long, narrow, very pointy scissors to reach in and cut the tape holding the vehicles trailer wiring connector. I was then trying to remove the tape on the outside of the connector, but I realized that it doesn't matter since the harness connector slides inside of the vehicles connector. The two connectors slid together easily and I heard a click when they were fully mated. My experience with etrailer was excellent. Delivery was very fast. 405835

The harness is well made and should be reliable. The installation instructions were excellent, but the 2017 CRV is a nightmare to wire. The harness works perfectly. 665090

The Honda dealer wanted several hours of labor to install the Honda version of this including dismantling half the interior. Trailer rental place wanted to cut and splice wires. This kit was a few minutes of popping off a couple of panels and plugging it in. It has been flawless! I sold the trailer last week. The poor woman who bought it had someone install bad wiring in her BMW so she had no brake or turn signals. Sorry no pics. 659234

Great quality product. I have been completely satisfied with the harness and use with my utility trailer with LED lights. The installation takes some time but if you're comfortable removing inside body panels just crank up the tunes in your garage and get busy. I used aluminum duct work tape to secure the wiring inside the vehicle. 659056

Purchased both hitch receiver and wiring harness for 2017 CRV. The product itself came as expected and in quality expected. Pricing relative to competitive options was excellent. Speed of shipment exceeded expectations, especially relative to time frame offered by full service installation vendors. What set this purchase apart for me was the detailed "how to-step by step" videos to assist in the install. Directions were precise and specific to my make and model. 658849

My 16 year old grandson and I (63 year old grandmother) installed the wiring and hitch in lines than 90 minutes.

Very fast shipping. Easy to install (although I haven't used it yet). The video on the website made installation a simple step-by-step process. The only advice I have is to not attempt to use the factory ground bolt. I just couldn't get my hand and socket wrench into the confined space. I ended up using a self-tapping screw to attach the ground wire; there's plenty of room closer to the hatch and it's all covered by the trim. 654549

Make sure to take the negative ground terminal off your battery before you start. When I removed the factory ground bolt I tripped the vehicle security system twice. After re-assembly I was unable to close the power lift gate. It acted like an open circuit. Took everything apart again to make sure a ground wire didn't fall off that I had missed. All fuses looked OK. The Lift gate still would not close. Cycled the lock and unlock buttons a few times and held the buttons. Started the car as well. Not sure what fixed it but it resumed working as normal. I suspect the car went into a protection mode for anti-theft. After some head scratching all is working well. 651638

Hitch is working great. Installation went well with no issues - had a mechanic do the install. The hitch fits well on my Honda CRV 2018. Flush with rear bumper so no problem with leg scrapes. Support arms are barely noticeable as they sit up close to the underside of the car. 643777

  • Least Visible 2-Inch Hitch Option for 2018 Honda CR-V
  • The best 2-inch hitch option for your 2018 Honda CR-V is the Curt model # C13397. This USA-made hitch has the 2-inch receiver size you want and it is also the most discrete in appearance. You can refer to the linked video for a comparison of hitch options and to the included photo and video showing this hitch fully installed. The small center receiver tube is the only part of the hitch that will be visible. If your plans are for a hitch bike rack or hitch cargo carrier you can use such...

  • Recommended Best Trailer Hitch Receiver When Comparing Options for 2019 Honda CR-V
  • The Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76128 , the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13397, and the etrailer # e98848 are all very similar. They will install in the same location on your Honda frame but they are rated for different load capacities and both of these capacity ratings greatly surpass the manufacturer towing capacity outlined in your owners manual, so I don't recommend making that the determining factor. The Curt # C13397 or the etrailer # e98848 is my recommendation...

  • 2019 Honda CRV Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation
  • First let's start with the hitch for your 2019 Honda CR-V... for that the etrailer hitch part # E98848 is the way to go as it has a concealed crosstube which means it will be mostly out of plainsight. It's also made in the USA unlike the Draw Tite which also has a visible crosstube which makes it stick out a bit more. See picture. For trailer wiring you'd then want the Tekonsha kit part # 118741 as it installs very easily. The ZCI kit is great but it requires you to test the wiring...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness Fits for 2018 Honda CR-V
  • My contact at Draw-Tite advised that they have not yet had a 2018 Honda CR-V in for test fit of the Class III hitch # 76128 nor the wiring harness kit # 118741. This does not necessarily mean they will not fit, only that the new model year has not been tested physically. However our other primary hitch supplier, Curt, does confirm a hitch fit for all versions of the 2018 CR-V, their Class III hitch # C13397 and their 4-pole wiring harness kit # C56370 which fits AWD models.

The T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118741 is a confirmed fit and will plug into the connection point in your rear cargo area. I have added a photo from the installation instructions showing the connection point and linked both the instructions and an install video for you to take a look at.

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way Trailer Wiring Harness in 2017 Honda CR-V
  • For your 2017 Honda CR-V there are only 4-way harnesses we offer as custom fit options. For that you would want the Tekonsha harness part # 118741 which is a custom fit option. I like to recommend the Tekonsha brand as it tends to be the most reliable. I attached an install video for you to check out as well. Now if your trailer does not have brakes all you would need is the part # 37185 as an adapter to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. If you do have trailer brakes you would need the...

  • Hitch, Wiring & Related Towing Parts for 2017 Honda CR-V AWD Touring
  • When a vehicle like your 2017 Honda CR-V AWD Touring has both `1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches available I always recommend the 2-inch option. The larger hitch does NOT give your car more capacity to tow but the 2-inch hitch size is much more common and you will be able to find more products that fit this hitch size. As you say, it also gives you safety margin or a bit of "insurance". I recommend Draw-Tite hitch # 76128. The hitch will likely block the center-positioned...

It is a sturdy round tube design that is an easy bolt on installation. Nothing needs to be cut or permanently removed from your vehicle. You will need to temporarily lower your exhaust for installation. This hitch has a nice black powder coat over an e-base for superior rust resistance. If you will be towing with this hitch receiver,...

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Recommendation for 2017 Honda CR-V
  • The difference between the two trailer wiring harnesses you mentioned is that one is made by Curt part # C56370 and the other Tekonsha, part # 118741. We have better luck with the Tekonsha kits being reliable so for your 2017 Honda CR-V I would recommend the part # 118741.

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2019 Honda CR-V
  • Best option for a trailer hitch on your 2019 Honda CR-V will be the etrailer hitch part # E98848 because this hitch has the 2 inch hitch size which has better towing capacities and has a concealed crosstube which makes it look nicer and help with ground clearance. This will work great to carry your Saris bike rack and tow a small trailer. The weight of the hitch is on 29 lbs so it won't affect ride quality at all either. For trailer wiring you'll want the part # 118741 because it installs...

What I really like about it is that concealed crosstube that makes most of the hitch aside from the opening not visible. It also has great towing capacities as well at 3,500 lb trailer weight and 525 lb tongue weight. For trailer wiring the most reliable option we have is the Tekonsha kit part # 118741 which is a confirmed fit. It's a plug and play option too which means...

As you can see by the accompanying cut out of the linked installation manual it is a small section that needs to be trimmed. The fascia trimming is needed because it allows most of the hitch to be hidden, as shown in the photo of it installed on a CR-V.

  • Installing Trailer Hitch on a 2017 Honda CR-V With Lift Gate Sensors
  • Installing a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Hitch # 76128 will be compatible with your 2017 Honda CR-V's hands free lift gate. However, you will probably need to kick under the bumper to the left or right of the center where the hitch receiver opening will be located. This section of the hitch might partially block the sensors in this location. If you plan on towing with this hitch, then I recommend the using the T-One Vehicle Harness, # 118741, and ball mount kit, # 989900. The harness...

The cross tube design is made so that there is minimal effect on the sensors so putting your foot to either side of center works well. The center receiver tube will obviously cover a sensor in the middle, but movement is the key. You do need to move your foot for the sensor to recognize it.
