Hello, I am looking to tow a Trailer with electric brakes with a 2017 Honda CRV EX-L AWD. Can you please tell me the products I will need? I would like to use a Curt Hitch. Thank you.

First let's start with a hitch for your 2017 Honda CR-V. For that the Curt hitch part # C13397 would be a great option. It has plenty of capacity and has a 2 inch hitch size.

You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118741.

From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup.

Since you wanted to do some towing you might be interested in etrailer ball mount kit # 989900. It comes with 2 ball mounts; one with a 3/4 inch rise or 2 inch drop and one with a 2-3/4 inch rise or 4 inch drop. It also includes a 1-7/8 inch ball, 2 inch ball, hitch pin with clip, and a storage bag.

If the ball mount kit does not include a ball mount with the right rise or drop to tow the trailer level, check out the link I have included that explains how to measure to choose a ball mount to tow the trailer level.
