How can I install a trailer wiring harness on a 2014 Honda Pilot?

I recently purchased a small fishing boat, and it was just delivered today. I’ll be using my 2014 Honda Pilot LX to tow it. Before the boat leaves my driveway, I need to install trailer wiring. What’s the best way to install a trailer wiring harness on my Honda?

Congratulations on the purchase! I’m sure you’re looking forward to getting on the water. Note that installing trailer wiring on your Honda Pilot LX can be a bit challenging, so you may want to consult a professional.
But if you’d rather do it yourself, here’s how to install a trailer wiring harness on a 2014 Honda Pilot:
  • Open the trunk and fold the rear seats forward.
  • Remove the compartment cover labeled AUX FUSE located on the driver’s side of the vehicle.
  • Locate the white trailer tow plug in the AUX FUSE compartment.
  • Mount the T-connector’s black box module in a flat area that is out of the way.
  • Open the hood and locate the vehicle’s fuse box. If you’re having trouble locating the box, consult the owner’s manual.
  • Insert the wiring harness’ fuses into the correct position. Again, you can consult the owner’s manual for further details.
  • Locate the large gray housing under the bumper on the driver’s side and remove the cap.
  • Plug the towing harness into the gray tow plug located underneath the cap.
  • Run the T-connector harness rearward and secure the tow harness to the hitch.
  • Test the connection and reinstall the panels removed during installation.
