Trailer Wiring and Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2017 Honda Pilot

Question:

I have a 2017 Honda Pilot. I see several trailer wiring kits for models with the factory tow package. Do you have a kit for a Pilot without a tow package. Thanks.

Actually all of the 2017 Honda Pilots are going to be pre-wired for trailer wiring so all you would need is the part # 118760 which will plug right in like in the video link I attached.

Question:

The info on the wiring was very helpful. I will be purchasing one from you in the spring. Do you have an opinion on the 2 brands of hitches you offer for the Pilot?? They both look comparable and the prices are almost the same.

The Curt Hitch part # C13146 and the Draw Tite part # 75225 are both great options for your Pilot. I would go with the Draw Tite though as it has a better price and a built in trailer wiring bracket.

if I buy the 7 way connector, will the 12 volt power to the trailer be enough to keep a small refrigerator operating? Will the draw tite 75225 still work with a full size spare tire? and do you have a video of the installation? 95874

This depends a lot on the actual power draw of your refrigerator, but I would say there's a decent chance the 12V circuit on your Pilot once installing the Tekonsha # 118286 likely won't be enough to reliably power it. Adding an on-board charger like the Redarc # 331-BCDC1225D will be your best solution for this kind of setup. The Draw-Tite # 75225 will only fit with the spare if it's the 18" or smaller rim. Anything larger will not fit - this is actually the case for any of the hitches available for your Pilot. 70838
