  • Swagman Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation that Fits 15 mm Thru Axles
  • There are several truck bed bike racks available that are confirmed to fit 15 mm axles, but the Swagman # S64702 that you referenced is not one of them, nor is there a way to make it work. Closest solution would be the Swagman Patrol part # S64701 which is a fit for 15 mm thru axles.

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Carry 2 Schwinn Discover 700c Bikes
  • The Thule Roadway # TH912XTR can carry 2 bikes up to 35 pounds each. From my research both the Schwinn Discover bikes weigh around 45 pounds a piece so the Roadway isn't the best option for you. Also, I suggest getting a platform rack because of the women's bike. A women's, or any alternative frame bike, often will not ride well on a hanging bike rack because the bike doesn't have the horizontal cross tube like a typical men's bike does. You can solve this by using an adapter bar,...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Battery that Drains While Towing
  • Some trucks do need additional parts in order for the 12 volt pin on the 7-way trailer connector to provide power to the trailer. To test the pin in the 1 O'clock position on your 2017 Honda Ridgeline use a circuit tester like our # 3808. Also check the fuses in your Ridgline. I used an online version of your owner's manual and found a trailer fuse in cavity 11 in the engine compartment fuse box. Check your printed copy to be sure.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for a 2007 Honda Ridgeline
  • Hidden Hitch and Draw-Tite are from the same parent company. Hidden Hitch has actually been discontinued but the 2 are identical except for the stickers that are on them. I would go with Draw-Tite hitch # 75280 for your 2007 Honda Ridgeline since it is the brand that is going to continue on. I have linked a video showing an example installation for you. 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...

  • Is there a Locking Skewer that Will Fit the Saris Kool Rack Truck Bed Bike Rack
  • Saris does not have locking skewers for the Kool Rack # SATRK00. While it is likely that another 9mm locking skewer will fit such as # RBCA002 I cannot guarantee it because the parts aren't tested together. What will work is to use a cable lock such as # CAB-10 to weave through the bikes and attach to the truck bed somewhere. I have linked a video of this cable lock for you.

  • Can I Change my 5.30-12 Tires for Bigger Ones on my Tow Dolly to Tow a 2008 Honda Ridgeline
  • In an online manual I was able to find the curb weight (weight of the vehicle when unloaded) of your 2008 Honda Ridgeline which was 4,500 lbs. If the tow dolly that you have uses a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern then the best tire/wheel combination for your application will be a size 225/75/15 with a Load Range of D. A tire with those specs, like the Contender # AC225R645WS, will have a max load rating of 2,540 lbs at 65 psi which will be enough to tow hold your Ridgeline as long as you do not...

  • Parts Needed to Install Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller 39510 in 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • If the Ridgeline has only a 4-pole wiring harness your brake controller installation will use our kit # ETBC7 which contains all of the other components needed, including a 7-way socket designed to easily connect to the 4-pole harness. This kit allows hardwired installation of any trailer brake controller, including the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510.

Regardless, the trimming on both applications will only be minor if even necessary. The bottom...

  • Trailer Wiring Recommendation for 2014 Honda Ridgeline
  • You might be the first person to request a universal trailer wiring options verse a custom fit one that doesn't require splicing! We can help though. For a hardwired harness I would recommend the # 119190KIT as it basically can fit any vehicle due to it's universal nature. I would still recommend the # 118491 though as it's going to be easier to install and not require any vehicle wire splicing.

  • Recommended Ball Mount to Tow a Trailer of Unknown Height with a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • Since you won't be able to determine the rise or drop you need ahead of time I recommend going with an adjustable ball mount on your 2017 Honda Ridgeline. My choice is the B&W Tow & Stow # BWTS10040B. It provides up to either a 7 inch drop or 7-1/2 inch rise. It also has the feature to be flipped under the hitch and stored away while not in use. This keeps it out of the way when accessing the bed of your Ridgeline. It also keeps you legal because some states have outlawed driving...

  • Will Curt Front Mount Receiver C31024 Fit a 2006 Honda Pilot
  • Curt front mount receiver # C31024 is designed to fit 2009 to 2015 Honda Pilots but will not fit a 2006. The hitches for 2006 have a different design so they are not interchangeable. For the 2006 you would use # 33328 which is very similar but ultimately not the same as C31024. The primary difference are the side flanges where the hitches bolt to the frames of the vehicles they fit. So while you may be able to get the hitch you have to fit I cannot recommend installing it since it is not...

  • Can Trailer Wiring Harness Cause Dash Lights To Malfunction When Brakes Are Applied
  • If you have the correct trailer wiring harness for your 2013 Ridgeline, there should be no issues with the dash lights on the vehicle when the brakes are applied. The wiring harness I recommend for your vehicle is the Hopkins # HM43125. This simply plugs into the connection points located behind the vehicle taillights. I recommend unplugging the harness you have and make sure it is designed as a fit for your vehicle. If it is not then I recommend returning it tot he retailer and...

  • Platform Bike Rack Similar to Thule T2 that Fits both 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch Hitch Size
  • The Thule T2 bike rack is an excellent rack but there really isn't a great way to use it in different hitch sizes since Thule makes a dedicated 2 inch version and a 1-1/4 inch version as well. Hitch adapters are kind of a mess too since they add quite a bit of movement and can sometimes cut hitch capacity. For a similar rack that can easily do both hitch sizes I would recommend the Saris Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4025 which would be an excellent option. It's very similar to the Thule...

  • Tongue Weight Ratings of Hitches Available for 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • Any vehicle's rated tongue weight (TW) capacity is fixed and does not vary by installing a higher-rated hitch. A given hitch itself can certainly have a higher rating than the vehicle on which it is mounted and in such instances the lower-rated item determines overall capacity, as in the weakest-link-in-the-chain way of thinking. There is no way to bolt on additional TW capacity on any vehicle. Most often hitch makers engineer a hitch's capacity to more or less match that of the host...

But we do have roof rack options for the cab of your 2017 Honda Ridgeline that you can see on the linked page.

  • Weight Distribution for a 2012 Honda Ridgeline and 3,000 Pound Trailer
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. Trailer tongue weight by itself is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight so a trailer that weighs 3,000 pounds should have a tongue weight of 300 to 450 pounds. Having too little tongue weight...

It can certainly be opened in incremental spaces when loading or unloading cargo, but during driving conditions, it should be secured either fully opened or closed.

I did some research on your 2017 Honda Ridgeline and it looks like the bed width on your truck is right at around 50 inches, so this should work great for you. I recommend also measuring your truck bed to confirm that that this information is correct. This Cargo Stabilizer bar will help control...

The truck bed rack options are limited for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline but the Tailwhip # S64761 is a great option. I know you mentioned not wanting something like this but they are actually more versatile than you might think. It protects the truck and securely...

If the Ridgeline has a bare roof, then I recommend looking at the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack, # RRRS717B. This roof rack uses their Vortex Aero crossbars for reduced wind resistance and noise.

  • Weight Distribution for 2007 Honda Ridgeline and 3200 Pound Rockwood Freedom 2318G

So basically the tongue weight range is 263 to 570 pounds depending on if it and the vehicle are loaded or not. If the trailer is not loaded to...

One note from the manufacturer is that the bottom of your 2-inch receiver must be 8 to 16 inches from the ground.

  • Parts Needed to Tow Trailer with Electric Brakes and 6-Way Trailer Connector
  • What you need depends on exactly what you already have on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. If the Ridgeline has a 7-way trailer connector already, you can use a 7-way to 6-way adapter # 47549. For a brake controller I suggest the Prodigy P2 # 90885. It's one of the easiest controllers to use and setup. If your Honda has a 7-way connector you'll also have the brake controller connector under your dash and can use # 3070-P. If you don't have the 7-way a controller will need to be hardwired...

  • The BAK X2 Revolver # BAK39602 for your 2017 Honda Ridgeline is attached to its rails at the front of the bed via 2 bolts on each side. Removing those will allow the cover to come off. Putting it back on is easy you just have to make sure it is lined up properly. The cover is not really meant to come on and off frequently. I have linked the instructions for you. The covers are custom made to fit the trucks they were designed for. If the correct cover was purchased and it does not fit...

  • Weight Distribution and Brake Controller Recommendations for a 2014 Honda Ridgeline Sport
  • To choose a weight distribution system you will need to go by the total tongue weight of the set up. This is calculated by taking the tongue weight of the trailer, when loaded and ready to tow, and adding to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. If we go by the maximum your 2014 Honda Ridgeline can tow then we are looking at a tongue weight anywhere between 380 pounds (10 percent of the dry trailer weight) and 750 pounds (15 percent of the max the...

  • Will The HitchMate TruckStep Extentendable Fit The 2017 Honda Ridgeline Storage?

  • Installing an Electric Trailer Brake Controller in a 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • From what we've learned the 2006 Honda Ridgeline either came with a 7-way trailer connector from the factory or it didn't have any factory wiring at all. You might check the owner's manual or with Honda to verify what your specific Ridgeline was originially equipped with. If you find you do already have the wiring and just need a 7-way connector at the rear then you can use # 37185. Then if you have the connector under your dash, for a brake controller I suggest the Tekonsha Prodigy...

  • How To Attach Tonno Pro Tonno Fold Soft Tonneau Cover On 2013 Honda Ridgeline With Bedliner
  • I believe you are talking about the bedliner on your 2013 Ridgeline when you said it only has a straight edge. I am not familiar with any bed side rails that do not have a lip on the inner part of the bed. The Tonno Pro Tonno Fold Soft Tonneau Cover, part # TP42-600 does have to clamp to the lip on the bed rail. If you have a bedliner covering up the lip of the bed rail you will have to cut a small section of the bedliner away so the clamp can attach to the lip of the bed rail.

  • Can 13 Inch Trailer Tires Be Used in Place of 12 Inch Trailer Tires
  • The ST175/80-13 trailer tire size is approximately 3.6 inches taller than the tires you have now. Half of that is applied above the axle center line so there will be less than 1/2 an inch of clearance between the fender and the top of the tire. You should have about 3 inches of clearance to account for travel of the suspension. Going to a 13 inch tire will not work unless you can raise the fenders up about 2-5/8 inches. What you could do is go to a 145/80-12 tire such as # AM10140. It...

So the panel to left of where the driver's feet will be is what you would need to remove to install the box.
