Today on our 2013 Honda CRV we’ll be test fitting the Saris Axis, a tilting 2 bike rack for inch and a quarter and two inch hitches, Part Number SA832V. To begin our test fit we’ll slide the shank of the bike rack into the receiver tube of our hitch, line up our pin holes, thread in our anti-rattle bolt and tighten it down with a wrench. With this secure, we can go over a few measurements. We will have about 12 inches worth of ground clearance.

The closest point of the rack to the back of the CRV is about 7 1/2 inches. Overall, we’ve added about 15 1/2 inches to the length of our vehicle. Pulling the yellow T-handle allows us to tilt the rack away from our vehicle.

Today on our 2013 Honda CRV, well be test fitting the Saris Thelma, a platform style 3 bike rack for 1-1/4 and 2 inch hitches, part number SA4239B. To begin our test fit, well slide the shank of the bike rack into the receiver tube of our hitch. Well line up our pin holes, thread in our anti-rattle bolt and tighten it down with a wrench.

In this position, youll have about 12 inches worth of ground clearance. The closest point of the rack to the back of the vehicle will be about 4 inches and overall were adding about 11-1/2 inches to our vehicle. By removing the gold pin at the base of the rack, we can tilt it into its loading position. As you can see, in this position, we do have full access to our rear hatch.

Lets go over a couple measurements.

Today we are going to install part number 13535 from Curt on our 2006 Honda CRV. First, we will show you where the hitch mounts up. First will be on the drivers side, on that frame rail right here. And then the center point, where the tie-down loop is, it uses that.

And the same two holes on the passengers side, which is right now hidden by the muffler.

Today we are going to install part number 118427 from Tow Ready, and this is a T-1 connector for a 2008 Honda CRV. This T-1 connector actually installs inside the vehicle, so let us have access to the inside. We will open up the hatch and show you what panels need to come out.

Remove this panel here and then we need to remove this threshold right here, and that way we can get access to this interior panel here so we can get behind it. You have two plastic rivets at the bottom. They are kind of different – you push the center and they pop out. It just takes gentle pressure and then it will pop out.

And then this panel we will need to pull loose, and there is one rivet right here. Way back in the back you can see the white connector with light blue tape around it. That is the connector you need to get into.

It is about two feet deep in there.

Honda CR-V Questions and Answers

You will have no problem using the SportRack 2 Bike Platform-Style Bike Rack, # SR2901, on your 2008 Honda CR-V EXL as long as you have a trailer hitch. This bike rack will fit 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch trailer hitch receivers and offers plenty of bumper clearance. You should also have no problem carrying your hybrid bike as long as it weighs less than 45 lbs.

This bike has a maximum weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. You may need an adapter bar, like part # SR0500, if your bike has a step-throu

The trailer hitch that I would recommend for your 2014 Honda CR-V EXL AWD is the Draw-Tite Class III Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, # 75742. We have installed this on a CR-V, so I attached the installation instructions and the installation video for you to check out. Draw-Tite is a reputable brand that makes both aftermarket and OEM trailer hitches and it does not require any type of support strap for non-trailer loads like the Curt hitches. For a bike carrier, the Swagman XTC-2 Bike Carrier, # S64

The Rhino-Rack RSP Series Roof Rack # RSP15 features elliptical-shape crossbars that measure 3-1/8-inches wide x 1-1/4-inches tall. This crossbar shape offers quieter performance than round or square bars but is not compatible with the mounting hardware included with the Yakima BasketCase Roof Rack Cargo Carrier # Y07012. This basket uses mounting hardware that works only with round or square crossbars. However, Yakima offers their Universal MightyMounts for Yakima Roof Mounted Accessories #

I spoke with Camco and the Water Pressure Regulator with Gauge, # CAM40064, is not adjustable. She told me this regulator can regulate water pressure from up to 60 psi down to 50 psi. She also said they have tested it up to 120 psi with some success, but if the incoming water pressure exceeds 60 psi, this regulator may not be able to regulate properly.

If the gauge reads too high then either the pressure on the water source needs to be lowered or the gauge or regulator is bad. According to C

Both the Thule Pulse For both the Thule Pulse # TH624 and the Thule Sonic # TH634B are confirmed as a fit for your Honda CR-V. For both of these cargo boxes, the distance between the knobs that secure the cargo box to the roof rack system is 19 inches. Also for both of these cargo boxes these securing knobs are adjustable so that you can move the box as needed to not interfere with the antenna on your roof. Due to the top profile of the box, for your application I recommend using the Thule F

The Thule Apex # TH9027 swing away function is very helpful, and as you indicated this adds to the weight of the bike rack. If you would like a lighter weight option I recommend the Thule Helium Aero 3 Bike # TH9043. This bike rack has all the same features as the Apex that you referenced, except the swing away function.

It can carry up to 3 bikes The Thule Helium Aero all aluminum construction makes this bike rack very manageable with a shipping weight of 27 pounds. Which is significant

Yes, the Blackhawk 2 All Terrain tow bar will fit the XL base plates # 1559-1 for the 2010 Honda CR-V. Since you have already been flat towing, you probably already have safety cables but in case you do need cables use # RM-645. These are straight cables that you can use in the cable guides on the Blackhawk tow bar.

You will also need lighting for the CR-V. If you are using a magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A or something similar then you can continue to use that with the CR-V. If you want somethi

The Curt Class III Hitch part # C13119 that I think you are referring to would be an excellent choice for a hitch for your 2012 Honda CR-V. This would also work great with a hitch mounted bike rack like the Thule Doubletrack Platform Bike Rack # TH990XT that you referenced. Since you said you need to carry 3 bikes though I would not recommend this rack since it only is designed to carry 2. Check out the Thule Helium 3 Bike Carrier part # TH9043. This is one of the nicest and lightest bikes on

First, if possible, you can try moving the crossbars more forward on the roof of your 2014 Honda CR-V. That will move the FrontLoader, # Y02103, more forward and could solve the problem. Cutting the rack will void its warranty and could cause rack failure. You can place the rack on the roof backwards if you wanted to.

That is an acceptable way to mount the rack.

The Swagman XTC-2 – 2 Bike Platform Carrier # S64670 is designed with a built-in anti-rattle function provided by the included threaded bolt. The shank of the carrier has a nut on the inside that mates with the bolt. This nut would prevent use of a standard 1/2-inch hitch pin. We do offer a locking anti-rattle threaded hitch pin that will both stabilize the carrier in transit and lock it to your hitch for security, part # S64029.

This comes with two keys. For your reference I have linked v

Anything that is in the way of the hitch mounting side brackets and/or the hardware to mount the hitch would have to be moved out of the way. You would have to pull the wiring harness you see back towards the front of the vehicle and out of that hole using something like fish tape or a straightened wire hanger. Then re-route it so that it is not in the way. I have linked a video showing an installation of Curt hitch # 13535 on a 2006 CR-V and the process will be the same, minus the wires you

Yes, the Curt Trailer Hitch # 13555 that you referenced is compatible with a 2007 Honda CR-V. This has been confirmed by Curt. Check out the install video and installation instructions I attached for this hitch on a similar CR-V as yours. To complete your towing setup you may also be interested in the following products: Ball Mount and Ball Set part # EBMK4 Curt Wiring Harnes # C55106

I would not be concerned about the Hollywood Racks Precision-clamping system failing. The hooks use a large spring to compress the hooks to the upright mast and provide a grip that is just as strong as the ratcheting hooks of the Swagman XTC-2 bike rack,# S64670. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack, # HR1450, that you referenced and the Swagman XTC-2 and comparable bike racks with a slight edge going to the SE2. The main difference is the folding ability of the SE2 and the increase

The first items you will need to flat tow your 2007 Honda CR-V LX AWD behind your Coachmen motor home is a base plate kit and a tow bar. The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit, # BX2246, will fit your CR-V and it is compatible with the Blue Ox Alpha Tow Bar, # BX7365, that you referenced. The Alpha tow bar also includes safety cables which are required by law.

The next item you will need is a light kit. If you do not plan to tow the CR-V very often, I recommend a magnetic kit like # C-ATL20A. If you do

Both the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450 and the Swagman XTC-2 # S64670 use a slide or ratcheting hook that secures over the top of the bike cross bar. Both hook styles have padding and both use an incremental adjustment system. Each system minimizes bike movement the manufacturers had a slightly different interpretation of how to implement this feature.

The Swagman system is able to be adjusted in a downward position with out releasing the latch. The Hollywood Racks will not move

Based on what I could find, TowDaddy only has a hardwire flat tow wiring system, # TD10000S. The plug and play harness is only listed up to 2011 CR-Vs. Regardless of that on the TowDaddy plug and play harness you can daisy chain them with a regular trailer wiring harness.

TrailerMate has a plug and play harness, # TM783120, that you can also daisy chain with a regular trailer wiring harness. However, the plug and play trailer wiring harnesses for the 2013 CR-V such as # C56158 do not plug in

The first thing you are going to want to look at is the gross trailer weight capacity of your 2005 Honda CR-V. It has been our experience that the vehicle is only rated for 1,500 pounds gross trailer weight and 100 to 150 pounds tongue weight. Check the owners manual to confirm the capacities of the vehicle.

The ball mount # D-28 and 2 inch ball # 63845 will work just fine together and with the Curt trailer hitch # 13535 you have on your CR-V. The anti-rattle device and lock you already have,

I have some options that will work for you, however, Pro Series does not offer replacements anti-rattle bolts for their bike racks. Instead, you can use the Softride Replacement Anti-Rattle Hitch Bolt, # SR22967, for the 2 inch shank and part # SR19696, for the 1-1/4 inch shank. These hitch bolts will look different from the original hitch bolts, but they will work with the Q-Slot Platform-Style bike rack. I had the Q-Slot bike rack and the Softride replacement hitch bolts, so I made a short

We have performed a test fit of the Yakima RocketBox Pro 14, # Y07192, on a 2013 Honda CR-V. The box does fit and does not interfere with the small fin-type antenna or the rear hatch. I have linked the video for you to view.

If you have a different antenna style that sticks up higher than the top of the rear crossbar then you will need to take a measurement to determine if it will interfere with the cargo box. If the crossbars can be moved forward on your CR-V then move the front crossbar as

The Swagman XTC4 bike rack, # S64665, fits in a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver. If your 2013 Honda CR-V has a 2 inch receiver then you can use this bike rack. However, you will want to consult your vehicle owners manual because we have found that the tongue weight capacity of the CR-V is actually only about 150 pounds. As long as you have a 2 inch hitch and the combined weight of the bike rack at about 59 pounds and the bikes does not exceed the tongue weight capacity of the vehicle and hitch

There is no plug-in adapter available to mate a 6-pole square RV connector directly to a 4-pole flat connector, but we do offer a 6-Pole Square Trailer Wiring Connector Kit, part # 37995, that can work for you as long as you do not have a Jayco RV (which can have compatibility issues with this part). Hopkins Connector Kit # 37995 includes both male and female connectors. You can cut off the 4-pole flat connector from the MaxxTow Magnetic Light Kit and splice in the male 6-pole connector in it

The SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box # SR7095 does not have a specific vehicle fit list so you will need to take some measurements to determine if it will fit your 2014 Honda CR-V. First, measure how wide or thick the crossbars are. This cargo box fits around bars up to 4 inches wide.

Next measure the distance from the center of the front bar to the center of the rear bar. This box will fit if that bar spread is 21-1/2 to 32 inches. If the top of the antenna is below the tops of the crossba

Hidden Hitch is just the brand name and does not necessarily describe the appearance of the hitch on the vehicle. In this case, hitch # 87621 will have the cross tube visible beneath the rear fascia on the 2014 Honda CR-V. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation to give you an idea of what it will look like installed.

All of the trailer hitches for the 2014 CR-V will fit the same way. The other thing to look at is the vehicle owners manual for the towing capacity of t

By far the simplest and least-intrusive type of dinghy lighting is a magnetic kit. Magnetic light kits do not require you to drill, install bulbs, splice wires or in any other permanent way alter your towed vehicle. They are easy to install and remove.

For example, Custer offers their Split Lens Magnetic Towing Tail Light Kit, part # SPL30B-6, which includes two split-lens lights with magnetic bases and a 30-foot cable with round 6-pin connector (please refer to the included photo). These

The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch # 24790 that you referenced will fit your 2001 Honda CR-V, however, the largest cargo carrier available for a Class I rated hitch is the Curt # C18140. This carrier measures 20W x 48L inches. At this time there is not a folding carrier that will fit a Class I rated hitch for your CR-V with the spare tire.

Class I rated hitches have a maximum weight capacity of 200 lbs. If all of your gear is under that weight limit then this pairing would be an economical choice. I

We do carry hitches that would be a fit for your 2014 Honda CRV. I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13119. This is a Class lll trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver opening. I have attached a link to an installation video of this hitch on a 2014 Honda CR-V. The numbers you see for the weight capacity of a trailer hitch are not based on the vehicle they are installed on.

They are based on the strength of the hitch alone. Although many times a hitch may have a rating of several hundred

It does sound like it is a fuse but we need to figure out what caused the fuse to blow in the first place. Otherwise this problem will just keep happening. First, to verify that it is a fuse, you can use the owners manual and/or the legend on the power distribution box lid to find the fuse location. Leave the harness unplugged when you change the fuse.

If the running lights on the 2011 CR-V start working then we know that there was a short somewhere that caused the fuse to blow. Check the

If your 2003 Honda CR-V has the side rails that run front to back then you can add some crossbars using the Rhino-Rack system # SXB2. Then you can use one of the following ski and snowboard carriers: # 562U # 566U # 564U If your CR-V has a bare roof then you can add crossbars using the following parts from Thule: Load bars, # THLB50 Podium feet, # TH460 Fit kit, # THKIT3050 Then you can use any of the following carriers: # TH92726 # TH92725 # TH575 The Snowcat, # TH5401,

The Tow Ready T-One Wiring Harness, # 118427, and the Curt T-Connector Wiring Harness, # C55106, are basically the same harness from two different manufacturers. The main difference between these two harnesses is that Curt uses surface-mount technology (SMT) which is newer technology from the older through-hole technology. The Curt harness also has higher amp ratings of 3 amps per circuit for the stop and turn lights and 7.5 amps per circuit for the tail lights. The Tow Ready harness only ha

If your CR-V has the OEM roof rack with crossbars, the Thule Pulse Large Cargo box, part # TH614 will indeed fit without hindering your ability to fully open the rear hatch. If you do not have the OEM crossbars, crossbars can be can be installed using the following parts: Thule Square 50 Inch Load Bars, part # THLB50 Thule Podium Foot Pack, part # TH460 Vehicle Specific Fit Kit, part # THKIT3042 These crossbars would attach to existing fixed points located along the edge of the roof.
