Good Sugestion .....DoneAwesome video!
Robert: Suggest editing your first post to add the YouTube link. Thanks!
Guess you missed some of my towing videos. I always use WDH even on the G1. I wouldnt tow without it either especially on curvy mountain roads. Glad G2 honda manual says you can now use one if it is setup properly. I really like the E2 WDH with friction sway control.Two things I notice watching videos about how the Ridgeline tows: no one seems to use weight distribution hitches and people tow 5,000 pounds without trailer brakes. They at least have breaks in this video but most I have watched don't have them.
Granted the ridgeline has more capability than my Odyssey but I wouldn't tow my 2,500 pound trailer without a weight distribution hitch. Here in California it is illegal to tow a trailer over 1,500 pounds without trailer breaks.
Thanks! I will be posting build instruction on the Camera soon.I hadn't seen that. I love the wireless backup camera.
The tongue weight was 460lbs. They used a weight distribution hitch without the trunion bars. The new trailer was'nt setup yet with the L brackets.Wow, very impressive. I can't believe it towed that well without a WDH. I'd LOVE to know what the tongue weight was.
I noticed that, too. Did they not realize that the 'D4' and 'L' were there for that purpose? They didn't discuss it at all -- that seemed odd....they noted that it didn't have much engine breaking on the way down the hill - correct me if I'm wrong they were in D and not D4 the entire trip. Wouldn't they have done better overall in D4? Especially toward the end where the RL waited to drop down a gear.
Impressive. I'm glad the TW was that much and it still performed well without distributing the weight.The tongue weight was 460lbs. They used a weight distribution hitch without the trunion bars. The new trailer was'nt setup yet with the L brackets.
After watching the vid, I was reading some of the you tube comments and someone asked if they used D4. Nathan or Andre posted that they tried D4 but it wasn't making any difference.I noticed that, too. Did they not realize that the 'D4' and 'L' were there for that purpose?

yeah, same here. It is annoying as it is just stubbornness on top of ignorance that makes them say that. The pilot is a ridgeline without a bed.hahaha.... so funny people still cant get over whether RL is a truck or not... (what an old school thinking). Need to keep up with the time. :grin:
