How to Install the Curt Trailer Hitch on a 2019 Honda Odyssey

Speaker 1: Today on our 2019 Honda Odyssey, you're going to be taking a look at and I'm going to show you how to install the Curt Class III trailer hitch receiver, part number C13370. This is what our hitch looks like when it's installed. You can see the cross tube is visible, however, it does have a round tube design, so it's not going to take away from the look of the vehicle. It's going to be a Class III hitch. It's going to be 2-inch by 2-inch. Hitch pin hole, which is right here, is going to be 5/8-inch in diameter.

The hitch pin and clip does not come with a hitch, however you can find one on our website. It's going to have plate style safety chain loops. You can see, gives you plenty of room for different size safety chain hooks. This is going to have a reinforced collar, to give you a little extra stability on your receiver tube.It's going to have a nice gloss black powder coat finish. It's going to resist any rust or corrosion.

As far as weight capacities go, going to have a 525-pound max tongue weight, which is the downward pressure on the inside of the receiver tube. And a 3,500-pound max trailer weight, which is the trailer plus the load included. Now, I do recommend checking the owner's manual of the Odyssey to make sure the vehicle can withstand that amount of weight. Want to pick the lowest number between the vehicle and the hitch. You can use weight distribution with this hitch.

Tongue weight is going to stay the same at 525-pounds. However, the trailer weight is going to go up to 5,000-pounds. Now, let's 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.From the center of the hitch pin hole to the outermost part of the bumper will be about 3-inches. From the ground to the top innermost part of the receiver tube, it's going to be about 13-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 on our frame rail that we need to access for . to put our hardware in. So 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 springs because they're easily accessible. inaudible 00:02:08 that. 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 channel locks, if you have a pry bar, a pry bar works too. Channel locks don't work all the time because of the spacing. Just like that. Then for this one back here, we'll take our pry bar, we'll wedge it . let me find somewhere to wedge it here. We'll start working it off. Just like that. Then 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 pushpin 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 to make sure you pull out the base too.Here on our driver's side we're going to have one, two, three, four more push pin fasteners we needed to take out. We'll take a 10-millimeter socket. We're going to have the bolt 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, remove your panel and we'll set it aside. Next, we're going to have a weld nut, a weld nut, and an open hole in our frame rail. It's going to be the same on both sides. We're going to start with this one here. We're going to have a pull wire. You're going to take one of your carriage bolts and you're going to have a space block. Put the spacer block on, thread on your carriage bolt, slide the head of the carriage bolt in the hole first, then your spacer block. You're going to pull it back down through. Do the same thing on the other side of the vehicle.Now we'll take our hitch and put it in position. We're going to utilize our exhaust here to help hold up this one side while we install our hardware on the other side. It's a good idea . If you have an extra person, it's always a good idea to help hold it in place. We'll slide it up like that. Then over here on our driver's side, put our pull wire in the corresponding hole. Take our hex bolt, conical tooth washer, we're going to make sure the teeth on the washer are facing up towards the hitch. We'll get one in on this side and one in on the other side to hold our hitch in place while we install our remaining hardware.Go ahead and remove our pull wire. Then we'll have a flange nut. This bolt moves, so it might be a little easier if you hold it with your finger till you get it in place. Once you get your hardware in on one side, you're going to repeat that process on the other side of the vehicle. Next, we'll take a 19-millimeter socket, and we'll tighten all of our hardware. Repeat that for the remaining hardware on the other side of the vehicle. Once you have all your hardware tightened, we can torque it to the specifications in the instructions. Repeat that for all remaining hardware. Once you have your hitch in place, go ahead and reinstall your exhaust. Once your exhaust is back in place, you can reinstall your exhaust deflector. And as far as your panel goes for your driver's side, directions tell you when you take it off just to keep it. It is optional that you can trim it. However, they don't give you any instruction on how to. So that modification is going to be completely up to you.That'll do it for the look at and installation on the Curt Class III trailer hitch receiver, part number C13370 on our 2019 Honda Odyssey.
