    Just bought a 2017 RTL-E. Can't seem to find a way to get the back up camera from going crazy/ beeping the proximity alert because there is a camper attached and I'm backing up. Thoughts?

    I keep seeing conflicting information around the hitch weight and tongue weight, and I'd love any help! I'm looking to purchase a trailer, and noticed the hitch weight rating says 500lbs on the truck, but the owners manual says the tongue weight is 600lbs when only 2 passengers in the vehicle...

Did great, about 15mpg (mostly highway speed 65-70mph) and brake controller had me confident in the safety of the whole rig. The beach we camped on had a soft...

    My wife and I towed a minimally loaded 4500 camper for 3800 miles over 34 days from North Carolina to Maine and back with a 2020 Honda Ridgeline RTL AWD. The RL had no difficulty towing using a Camco load distribution hitch with sway control. I could easily go 65-70 miles per hour on level...

    Hello everyone, I am soon getting a 2022 Ridgeline Sport and am researching some overlanding mods. I was wondering of any issues caused by the skid plates (especially the rear diff skid plate). The front skid plate has cutouts for cooling, but the rear diff skid plate doesn't. Does this cause...

    I recently moved from Denver to Orlando and had the decision to ship my second car, buy a trailer and tow it, or rent a uhaul and tow it. I ended up buying a 16ft trailer and towing my FRS over 1900 miles with absolutely zero issues. I upgraded my brakes (pads and rotors) to the Z36 Powerstop...

    I was looking at the new rear exhaust, in my Gen 1, I can just barely avoid getting the exhaust wet on the ramp. The new rear ones appear like they may have less clearance. Any real-world experience yet?
