How to Install the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch on a 2019 Honda Odyssey


Speaker 1: Today on our 2019 Honda Odyssey you're going to be taking a look at, I'm going to show you how to install the Draw Tite Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 36633. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is visible, however it's got a round tube design, and it sits nice and far back up underneath the fascia, so it's not going to take away from the vehicle. You can see the edge of our receiver tube, it sits back behind the outermost edge of our fascia, we're not going to have to worry about hitting our legs or our shins on it when we're loading and unloading the vehicle.This is going to be a Class II hitch, it's going to be an inch and a quarter by inch and a quarter. Hitch pin hole here, it's going to be half inch in diameter. It does not come with a hitch pin and clip, however, you can find that on our website.

We're going to have plate style safety chain loops here, gives you plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. And it's going to have a nice black powder coat finish, it's going to help resist any rust or corrosion. We're also going to have a nice reinforced collar to give us a little extra stability on the end of our receiver tube, which is going to make this hitch great for your Class II accessories, like your bike racks and your cargo carriers.As far as weight capacities go, we're going to have a 350 pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. We're going to have a 3500 pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. I do recommend checking the owners manual of your Odyssey to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight.

You want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. Now, let's give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mounted accessory you may need, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier. From the center of our hitch pin hole to the outermost part of our bumper, it's going to be about four inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of our receiver tube, is going to be about 12 and a half inches. Now, let's show you how to get this installed.To start our installation, your directions are not going to tell you this, but to make your installation a little bit easier, this extra step is going to help.

We're going to lower our exhaust because we're going to have two weld nuts and a hole over here in our frame rail that we need to access for, to put our hardware in. How we're going to do this, is we're going to take a strap, you can hang it from anywhere, you can secure it on the back of the vehicle. I like to go from the spring because they're easily accessible. Then we're going to have a rubber hanger here, and we're going to have a rubber hanger back here. We're going to take some silicone lubricant, and we're going to spray down our hanger like that.

We'll take some gentle locks, if you have a pry bar, pry bar works too. Gentle locks don't work all the time, because of the spacing. Just like that. And for this one back here, we'll take our pry bar and wedge it . Find somewhere to wedge it here. And we're going to start working it off, just like that.We'll take our strap and loosen it up a little bit. What we don't want, we have another hanger up there, what we don't want is we don't want this to rest on itself, we want to support it so it doesn't mess with the exhaust pipe up ahead of it. Next, we're going to have our exhaust deflector, two push pin fasteners here on the outside. Take a flathead screwdriver, pry out the center. Once you get the center out, you want to make sure when you pull this out you get the base with it. If the center does come out, you can always put it back in, just makes sure you pull of the base, too.Now, here on our drivers side, we're going to have one, two, three, four more push pin fasteners we need to take out. We're gonna take a 10 millimeter socket, we're going to have the bulb right here. Now, we're going to have a Phillips head screw right here, on the inside of our fender well. Once you remove your screw, you remove your panel, and we'll set it aside. It's a good idea, if you have an extra set of hands, it's a good idea to have them help you hold it. But again, our exhaust is here, we have our strap on, we're going to go ahead and use that to help us out. We're going to take a hex bolt, conical tube washer, we're going to have existing weld nuts here on the side of our frame rails, gonna make sure that the teeth of the washer are facing up towards the hitch. We'll get one in on each side, hold our hitch in place while we install the remaining hardware.Once you have your hardware installed, take a 19 millimeter socket, we're going to tighten all of our hardware down. Once you have all your hardware tightened down, you're going to torque all of it to the specifications in the instructions. You're going to repeat that for all remaining hardware. Next, you can reinstall your exhaust and remove your safety strap. Now we can reinstall our exhaust deflector, and then we'll trim out our other panel on our drivers side, according to the instructions. They say one inch by 10 inches, right on the inside of this raised section here is about one inch across. So, we'll go 10, just put a mark there just like that. And we're going to take out this piece right here. I'm just going to use a dremel tool with a cutting blade. You can probably use a utility knife, it will probably go through this, it's pretty flexible plastic. Whatever means you have.We'll get a utility knife and trim off all the burrs, like that. Now, we'll go ahead and test fit it and see if there's any other modifications we need to make with it. Now, we can go ahead and reinstall our fasteners. That'll do it for a look at an installation on the Draw Tite Class II Trailer Hitch Receiver, part number 36633, on our 2019 Honda Odyssey.
