2013 Honda Questions and Answers


  • Recommended Hitch with Best Ground Clearance for 2013 Honda Odyssey
  • As you can see by the photo I have edited for you, the Draw-Tite and Curt hitches available for your Odyssey are all pretty similarly designed. When we installed both hitches on a 2013 Odyssey, we found that the Curt # C13068 had about a 1/2 inch greater ground clearance (12-1/2 inches) versus 12 inches for the Draw-Tite # 75270 models. The receiver of the Draw-Tite hitches are recessed a bit more under the vehicle, but neither of the hitches will extend past the bumper, and therefore...

  • Differences Between Thule Parkway and Thule Trailway Bike Racks
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said the Thule Trailway bike rack is an exclusive bike rack that Thule sells to certain retailers. The Trailway is very similar to the Thule Parkway # TH956. The main difference is the Trailway only comes as a 4 bike bike rack for 1-1/4" receivers with a 2" sleeve adapter. The Parkway comes in 2 and 4 bike configurations and options for both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. I have included a video review of the Thule Parkway on a 2012 Honda CR-V.

  • How Does Blue Ox Patriot RF Portable Braking System Work
  • The Blue Ox Patriot Radio Frequency, Portable Braking System, part # BRK2016 has a couple components in the package. The system includes an in-coach RF controller that plugs into a 12V outlet in the cab of the motorhome. This accelerometer in the RF controller senses the braking action of the motorhome and sends a signal to the brake system in the towed vehicle. Since it is a proportional system, it will apply the brakes in the same proportion to the braking action of the motorhome. We...

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • You are correct, the trailer hitch is rated higher than the 2013 Honda CR-V but you still have to go by the weight capacities of the vehicle since they are lower. So you will want to stay within the manufacturers 1500 pound limit, even though the hitch is rated higher. The 2300 pound trailer is going to be too much for the CR-V. You would either need a different tow vehicle or an even lighter trailer. If you go with a lighter trailer then you will also need a ball mount, pin and clip,...

  • Comparison of Curt Hitch # C13119 and Draw-Tite Hitch # 75742 on 2013 Honda CRV
  • The comparison of the Curt Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # C13119, and the Draw-Tite Class III 2-Inch Hitch, part # 75742, for the 2013 Honda CRV is very similar. The tongue weight difference of 350 lbs for the Curt and 525 lbs for the Draw-Tite would be one of the biggest differences. Also, if you will be using the hitch to haul a hitch accessory like a bike rack or cargo carrier, the warranty on the Curt hitch does require the use of a stabilizing strap like the Curt Support Strap,...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • Blue Ox does make some good products and the Patriot # BRK2016 is one of the best braking systems you could use. It is relatively easy to install, much more so than some other braking systems out there. And it can be used with active power assist braking systems. I would go with it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view. I have also included a link to an FAQ article on supplemental braking systems for you to view. For the BX2258 base plates, make...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • I will be more than happy to make some bike rack recommendations for you. I can give you my top picks that fit the criteria that you have provided but there are some other important factors you will need to consider. Then I can provide a more specific recommendation. The year, make, and model of the vehicle, the size trailer hitch, and the type of bikes is all important. A 2013 Honda CR-V like yours could have a Class I, II or III hitch with either a 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch receiver so...

  • Easy Way to Lift Tandem Axle Wheel Off Ground to Change Flat Tire
  • The Ultra-Fab Ultra Scissor Jacks # UF48-979002 can be used on up to 6,500 lb trailers as stabilizer jacks, but they do not have the lifting capacity to actually lift a 6,500 lb trailer off the ground. Attempting to do so could damage the jack and potentially damage your trailer as well as hurt someone attempting to change a tire with this jack. For a tandem axle trailer a much easier way to lift a trailer to change the spare would be to use the part # AM3620 instead. I attached a review...

  • Can a 2013 Honda Fit Be Flat Towed
  • I have a copy of the 2013 Honda Fit Owners Manual that I found online, and it states that both manual and automatic transmission equipped Fit models can indeed be towed behind a motorhome IF the specific procedures shown are followed. You can find this information by doing a Google search on '2013 Honda Fit Owners Manual'. Be sure to read the instructions carefully and completely, as they're pretty specific and if they aren't followed to the letter, you can damage the drivetrain of your...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for a 2013 Honda CR-V LX AWD
  • The tongue weight figure you referenced, 150 pounds, is correct if the hitch or owners manual states the max tongue weight is 10 percent of 1,500 pounds. The vehicle tongue weight capacity is what you will need to go by, even if the hitch is rated higher. In this case, if the hitches you are interested both exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle, there is no advantage to going with the higher of the two. When you are calculating how much weight is on the hitch you would...

  • How Do I Know If My 2013 Honda Pilot Has Factory Tow Package
  • If your 2013 Honda Pilot has the factory tow package you will find a connection point for the 4-way harness, like the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness for Factory Tow Package - 4-Pole Flat Trailer Connector # C56170, which you referenced, located behind the interior access panel in your rear cargo area. To install the harness will need to make two connections: The tow harness with 4-way connector plugs into the connection point behind rear bumper, driver's side (see S5). The...

  • 4-Way Trailer Wiring Harness for a 2013 Honda Pilot
  • I will be happy to help you out. For a 4-Way on your 2013 Honda Pilot, you will use wiring harness # 118558. All 2013 Honda Pilots are pre-wired but what that means is they can accept a harness that plugs in. The rest of the wiring is already pre-ran through the vehicle. We do not have a video but I have linked the detailed instructions for you. Installation will be simple and should not take long at all. Current pricing is available on the product page. The # 118491 wiring harness...

  • Which Hitch to Carry Bike Rack On 2013 Honda Accord 4-Door
  • Of the available hitches for your 2013 Honda Accord, I believe that the Curt Class I Receiver, part # C11681 would provide the best appearance. The cross tube is constructed of tubular powder coated steel, which in many peoples opinion looks better than the square tubing of the Draw-Tite or Hidden Hitch models. The tubing bends up and back a few inches to either side of the receiver opening, which means that the entire cross tube is not visible from the rear. I have provided a photo...

  • Will 2 Suitcases Fit in Either the Thule Force or Thule Sonic Rooftop Cargo Box
  • For both the Thule Force Medium # TH624 is confirmed as a fit for your Honda CR-V. For both of these cargo boxes, the distance between the knobs that secure the cargo box to the roof rack system is 19 inches. Also for both of these cargo boxes these securing knobs are adjustable so that you can move the box as needed to not interfere with the antenna on your roof. Please note that there is not much additional vertical clearance for your suitcases if they are 13 inches tall as the box...

  • What is the Towing Capacity of a 2013 Honda Accord Sedan V6
  • You are correct, the 2013 Honda Accord sedan does have a listed towing capacity of 1,000 pounds gross trailer weight and 100 pounds tongue weight. Even though the hitches available, such as Curt hitch # C11681, are rated higher you will still need to go by the capacity listed in the vehicle owners manual. The correct ball mount to use with this hitch and vehicle is # C45521. For a 1-7/8 inch ball use # 19256 and for a 2 inch ball use # 19258. For trailer wiring, if your Accord has LED...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda Fit Sport Automatic Behind a Motor Home
  • The best place to check to see if a vehicle can be flat towed behind a motor home is the owners manual. I found one online for the 2013 Fit from Honda and it states that you can tow the vehicle behind a motor home. There are special instructions for the automatic transmission you will want to look at so be sure to check your owners manual. You will need 5 items to flat tow your fit. First you will need base plates, # BX2253. These provide a safe mounting location for a tow bar. For a...

  • 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.

  • Trailer Wiring Harness Options for 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L
  • We offer trailer wiring harnesses for your 2013 Honda Pilot whether or not it came equipped with the factory tow package. The simplest way to find out how your vehicle is equipped is to provide your VIN to your local Honda dealer; he can look up the VIN to see how the vehicle was equipped from the factory. However, the two parts noted below will work in either case. If you need a 4-pole flat trailer connector on your Pilot you can use Tow Ready harness # 118558. If your trailer needs...

  • Wiring Recommendation to Flat Tow a 2013 Honda CR-V Behind a Motor Home
  • For the 2013 Honda CR-V getting the correct wiring harness for flat towing depends on a few factors. If you are going to be towing the vehicle often then using a custom harness like # TM783120 would be a good choice. But if you are using a supplemental braking system (which is required by law in most states) then you will also need a brake light relay # RM-88400. If you will not be towing often then I recommend a magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A. This bypasses the vehicle wiring so a brake...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2013 Honda Civic SI Sedan
  • I did some digging and found that the Curt trailer hitch # C11391 does fit the 2013 Honda Civic Sedan si model so you can use it. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be using the hitch for something like a bike rack or cargo carrier you will need to make sure that the accessory is rated for use on a Class I trailer hitch. Class I trailer hitches are limited to 2 bikes maximum. Curt recommends the use of a stabilization strap, # 18050, for all...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch, Bike Carrier, And Wiring For 2013 Honda CR-V
  • When choosing a hitch for your CR-V I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, part # 75742. This is a Class lll hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. I recommend this hitch because it is a Class lll and heavier duty than the other hitches and with the 2 inch receiver does offer a lot more options when choosing accessories. It does have a higher towing capacity than the vehicle, so you should always go by the lowest rated component when towing or carrying any accessories in the hitch and...

  • What Size Hole is Needed to Install the 2-Piece Polypropylene Trailer Vent
  • Installation of the 2-Piece Polypropylene Trailer Vent, # HMAV2-AVT2, requires a 3 inch diameter hole when installed in a trailer with standard trailer wall thickness, 1-1/2 inches thick or less. This is the case for most enclosed trailers, but since your trailer wall is thicker than 1-1/2 inches you will need to use an appropriate length piece of 3 inch inside diameter (ID) PVC pipe to accommodate the thicker wall. The outside diameter (OD) of the 3 inch ID pipe will then dictate the...

  • Recommended Ball Mount for 2013 Honda Pilot
  • On average, the coupler height of a trailer that is jacked up so that it is level is between 17-19 inches high. To determine the rise or drop your ballmount needs, jack the trailer so that the frame is level to the ground. Measure from the underside of the coupler down to the ground. Then measure from the top inside edge of the receiver opening to the ground. The difference between these two measurements is the rise or drop needed. If the receiver height of the Pilot is greater than...

  • Black Solar Slide Out Recommendation for Slide Outs 78 inch and 112 inch
  • When picking out a slide topper you do it by the actual box width of the slide out. So for a black awning for a 78 inch wide slide out you'd want the # LCV000168105. For a 112 long slide out you'd want the part # LCV000251461.

  • Can Thule Square Bar Traverse Roof Rack Foot # TH480 Be Converted to AeroBlade Version # TH480R
  • My contact at Thule advised that it is not possible to convert or modify their # TH480 foot pack to be like the # TH480R that works with AeroBlade roof rack crossbars. The Fit Kit portion of both the square and AeroBlade type racks, part # THKIT1465, is common but the foot packs and load bars will need to be replaced to convert from the square bar rack to the AeroBlade rack. You will need to order the Rapid Traverse Roof-Rack Foot Pack # TH480R as well as either the AeroBlade silver...

  • Do Fuses Need to be Pulled When Flat-Towing a 2013 Honda CR-V
  • Yes, you absolutely have to remove the fuse from your 2013 Honda CR-V when flat-towing. One option that will alleviate this process is installing a Roadmaster # RM76511 Fuse Bypass System. This unit is basically a permanent solution being that it is hardwired into your vehicle. There is a rocker switch that you depress when you are either driving which will activate the fuse or towing which will de-activate your fuse. By using this product, you do not have to worry about removing the...

  • How to Add 5-Flat Connector to 2014 Honda Pilot With Tow Package
  • The 2013 and 2014 Honda Pilots are of the same generation, therefore they should be wired identically. I have confirmed with Tow-Ready that if you do not have wiring on your PIlot then the Tow-Ready # 118265 that you referenced will fit your vehicle. If you currently have a 7-way connector on your 2014 Pilot then the easiest way to convert to a 5-pole flat connector is to add a connetor like the Hopkins Multi-Tow Connector # HM48470. This 7-way will replace your current 7-way and also...

  • Kayak Carrier to Carry 120 LBS Pro Angler Kayak on 2013 Honda CR-V with Thule Roof Rack
  • I may have a solution that will allow you to load your Pro Angler 14 foot kayak on the roof rack of your 2013 Honda CR-V, but before you select a kayak carrier for your vehicle, I strongly recommend checking the weight capacity of your vehicle's roof. The weight capacity of most vehicle roofs is not very high and this information should be located in your owner's manual. Overloading a roof rack can cause damage to your roof rack and the roof of your vehicle. If you find that you can...

  • Recommended Rock Guard for Use with Blue Ox Tow Bar

Since this item has not been tested with a Blue Ox tow bar I cannot guarantee compatibility. It might work but modifying it will void your warranty. I recommend using a Blue Ox product like their KarGard Towed Vehicle Protector # BX8870. This will work with most Roadmaster and Blue Ox tow bars, excluding the Roadmaster StowMaster or Blue Ox Acclaim tow bars. It is also...
