  • Trailer Brake Controller installation in 2010 Honda Ridgeline Without Factory 7-Way
  • Your 2010 Honda Ridgeline will have an under-dash connection port for a trailer brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 only if it came from the factory with the 7-way trailer connector. Adding this connector using kit # 118253 does not provide the brake controller port. This part is intended as a factory replacement but not a retro-fit. For any vehicle that does not have the factory-installed 7-way and the under-dash port a brake controller installation will be hardwired. This...

  • Recommended Westin Premier Nerf Bars for 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • Unfortunately, the Bull Steps like # BBS-1103 are not a fit for your 2011 Honda Ridgeline. For a good looking and more customized look on your Ridgeline, I recommend the Westin Premier Oval Nerf Bars w/ Custom Installation Kit - 6" Wide - Black Powder Coated Steel # 22-6035-1675. These don't look like factory running boards or traditional round nerf bars. They are more unique and confirmed to fit your vehicle.

  • Why Can't the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider Bike Rack for Electric Bikes be Used on an RV or Trailer
  • Only certain bike racks are tested and rated for use on the back of an RV or trailer. Hollywood Racks has not approved the Sport Rider # HR1450E for this use which is why it can't be used for that application. At the back of an RV or trailer there is significantly more movement from hitch accessories due to the distance from the rear axle to the hitch receiver and the suspension cannot really compensate for it. A bike rack not built to withstand these extra forces can be damaged. What...

  • Troubleshooting No Power on 4-Way Harness for 2006 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118400 referenced in your question is indeed confirmed to fit your 2006 Honda Ridgeline. If you are receiving no power on any of the circuits of the installed 4-Way, I recommend completely removing the wiring harness and simply re-installing it. It's possible that you may have missed something during the initial installation that you will catch when going through the steps again. Sometimes there will be a couple of ports, similar in design,...

  • Difference Between Fastway Weight Distribution Systems # FA92-00-0600 and # FA94-00-0600
  • The difference between the two system is the spring bar design. The part # FA92-00-0600 has a square bar "trunnion" spring bar and the part # FA94-00-0600 uses round bars. Trunnions are preferred as they offer better ground clearance and are generally considered more heavy duty. Aside from that they have the same capacities.

  • Recommended Brake Controller for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline

This is one of the easiest brake controllers to install and use, plus it has received numerous positive reviews from our customers. To install it in your Ridgeline you will simply need to use the Adapter # 3070-P which will give you a plug-in option. If your Ridgeline did not come with the factory tow package then you will need to install the Curt T-Connector # C56366...

  • Troubleshooting Curt 7-Way Wiring Harness Kit C56366 Installed in 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • Thank you for your purchase of Curt 4-Pole Wiring Harness # C56366 which is a confirmed fit for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline that has the factory tow package connector. If you have installed this and found that there is 12V power going into the converter box but nothing is coming out of it then this does tend to suggest it is internally damaged. But you can check the plug both on the harness and on the vehicle side, just in case there is a contact in either connector that could be bent,...

What you can do is use a specific Rhino-Rack set up to create the next-best thing to a ladder rack. For this you would need to have a 2 inch trailer hitch, which should be on the vehicle already, and the following Rhino-Rack parts: Bar # RRVA150B Legs # RRRLKVAH Clamp Fit # DK470 T-Load # RTL002 The fit kit will allow you to place the crossbar on the roof in either the front bar...

  • Recommended Cover for Keystone Passport 195RB in Snowy/Cold Storage Conditions
  • Based on my research, it looks like your Keystone Passport 195RB is around 23-24 feet long, depending on the model year. I highly recommend verifying this on your specific trailer. With these dimensions in mind, I recommend looking at the Adco RV Cover w/ Tyre Gards # 290-34842. This is an excellent, all-climate cover that works on travel trailers that are between 22 and 24 feet long. The cover is constructed and designed specifically for wind, high moisture and snowy climate conditions....

  • Tonneau Cover Recommendation for 2017 Honda Ridgeline That Allows Trunk to Fully Open
  • For your 2017 Honda Ridgeline you'd have to go with a folding tonneau cover like the Extang Trifecta 2.0 part # EX92590 because this cover does not have a railing that runs to the inside of the bed rail. This is important since you said you want the truck bed tailgate to fully open and we know that when the trunk comes up to pass the bed rails it gets very close to the bed rails.

You will have to purchase separate tie-downs for the rack, such as the Highland 10-foot Ratchet TieDown, part # 1157100, to secure the kayak to the rack. An additional foam block, part # DTA924 can improve your overall ride and protect your kayak from damage. The Extend-A-Truck already includes one foam block, and a second will even out the...

The second location is at the rear of the vehicle, driver's side. Look in the area behind the rear bumper for the connector that mates with the one included...

You can also use a Circuit Tester # 3808 to test all of the functions on the 7-Way on your Ridgeline to see if it is fully functioning. The fuse box you will want to look at is under the hood.

Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is 10-15% of the weight of the loaded trailer.

I attached an install video for the hitch plus a review video for the rack for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on...

  • Replacement Hubs for a 2007 Trailmanor Trailer
  • From my research your trailer likely has a 3,500 pound axle. Which means it probably has inner bearing # L68149, outer bearing # L44649, and the hubs have a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern. You definitely want to verify this before purchasing anything. If I'm correct then I recommend # AKHD-545-35-K for the hubs. Or # AKHD-545-35-EZ-K if it has an E-Z Lube axle that has a zerk fitting on the spindles. To determine if these are the correct parts you'll need to pull the hubs and check the...

  • Can MaxxTow Off-Road Light Bar Be Mounted On Rear Bumper To Help When Backing Up
  • The MaxxTow Off-Road Light Bar # MT80630 is designed for off-road use. The light bar does come with the wiring and a switch. Since it is intended to be used for seeing what is ahead I recommend checking with the authorities to see if there is any reason you cannot use it as a back up light as you want.

  • Available Flat Towing Base Plates for 2011 Honda Pilot
  • Base plates that allow flat-towing a vehicle with a tow bar are typically custom-designed for one specific vehicle. Some vehicles cannot be flat towed. For the 2011 Honda Ridgeline we show no base plate fits at all, not from any manufacturer. For the 2011 Honda Pilot we do offer base plates from Roadmaster and Blue Ox. These are displayed on the linked page. Both of these products, # 1562-1 and # BX2251, fit the 2011 Pilot that does not have a brush guard.

  • Will the Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 Work with a Cushioned Shank
  • The Roadmaster Quiet Hitch # RM-061 is made to be used with 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and is used to help eliminate any rattle and/or sway that happens in the hitch receiver on your 2008 Honda Ridgeline. The great thing about this device is that you will be able to use whatever hitch pin that you want to. Since it secures the shank on the outside it will work just fine with your cushioned shank. If you are wanting to use the Quiet Hitch with a J-Pin, like part # 63201, then it can...

  • Swagman Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation that Fits 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...

  • 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...

For a similar rack that can easily do both hitch sizes I would recommend the Saris Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4025F which would be an excellent option. It's very similar to the Thule...

  • 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...

  • 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...
