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

Speaker 1: Today we have 2019 Honda Odyssey, you are going to be taking a look at the best way to install the Draw-tite Class III Neck Trailer Hitch Receiver-Part Number 76171.What our hitch looks like when its installed, you can see the cross-tube is visible, however its got a round tube design so its not going to take away from the vehicle. Fits nicely with the contour. It's gonna be a Class III Hitch, it's gonna be 2 inch by 2 inch. This hole here is going to be for your hitch pin hole. This is going to be 5/8 inch in diameter. It doesn't come with a hitch but however you can find a hitch pin and clip on our website.This hole here is going to be for a J-pin stabilization device only.

What that does, is it takes the shake and play out of any of hitch round accessories. Its gonna have plate style safety chain loops, it gives you plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. Its also going to have a nice pre welded bracket over here on the side for any of your wiring accessories you may want to add later. This hitch does have a reinforced collar to give you a little extra stability on your receiver tube. Its going to have a nice black powder coat finish, that's going to help resist any rust or corrosion.As far as weight capacities go, you are going to have a 675 lb.

Max ton weight, which is the onward pressure of the inside of the receiver tube. Your going to have a 4500 Max trailer weight which is a trailer plus the load included. I do recommend checking your 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 you can weight distribution with this hitch, the Ton weight is going to stay the same at 675 lbs.

however your trailer weight is going to go up to 5000 lbs.Now lets give you a few measurements to help you when deciding on any hitch mount accessories you may need, such as a Bike Rack, ball mount, or Cargo Carrier. On the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer most part of the bumper, it will be about 4 inches. From the ground to the top of the inner most part of the receiver tube, it will be about 12 1/2 inches.Now lets 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 are going to lower our exhaust because we are going to weld nuts and a hole over here in our frame well that we need to access for, to put our hardware in.So how we are going to this, is we are 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 springs because they're easily accessible. Look at that. Then we're gonna have here and a rubber hanger back here. We're gonna take some silicon lubricant and we're gonna spray down our hanger, like that. We'll take some channel locks, you have a pry bar, pry rod works too. Channel 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, we'll wedge it, find somewhere to wedge it here. We'll 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 on the outside and take a flathead screwdriver at 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 to make sure you pull out the base too. Now here on our drivers side we are going to have one, two, three, four more push pin fasteners we need to take out. We'll take a 10 millimeter socket, we're gonna add the bolt right here. Then we're gonna have a fillips head screw, right here on the inside of the fender well. Once you remove your screw, remove your panel and we'll set it aside.Next we're gonna put our hitch into place. We're going to utilize our exhaust on this side to hold up our hitch, while we put hardware in on the other side. If you have an extra set of hands, its always a good idea to use that extra person to help hold it. If not, this is one way you can do it. Next we'll take our hex bolt, inaudible 00:04:46 and make sure the teeth are facing toward the hitch. We're gonna thread it into the existing lug nuts in the bottom of our frame rail. Go ahead and get one in, on each side of the hitch to help hold it in place, while we install our remaining hardware. I'll take a 19 millimeter socket and we're gonna tighten all of the hardware. We are going to repeat that for the other side of the vehicle.Next we'll torque all of hardware to the specifications in the instructions. Once you have all of your hardware torqued, you can reinstall your exhaust and remove your safety strap. 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, lets put a mark here, just like that. And we're gonna take out this piece right here. I'm just going to use a dremmel tool with a cutting blade, you can probably use a utility knife it will probably go through this pretty flexible plastic. Whatever means you have. Take the utility knife and we'll just kind of trim off all of the burrs. Like that. Now we'll go ahead and test fit and see if there is any other modifications we need to make with it. Looks like we're good. We'll go ahead and reinstall our fasteners. Then we can reinstall our exhaust deflector and we're ready to go. That will do it for our Draw-tite Class III Neck Trailer Hitch Receiver-Part Number 76171 on our 2019 Honda Odyssey.
