I'm in the same situation (replacing my 2006 EX-L with a 2017 EX-L).I bought a 2014 Odyssey and am planning to pull a trailer. I have a hitch and wiring harness for a 2007 that I previously owned. Can I use that or is it not compatible?
The rusted look after a few years is why I've decided to go with the Draw-Tite and leave the Curt on the 06 when I sell it. Since the 06 is all set to tow, I'm hoping to get a couple hundred more for it. Who knows? In any case, the Draw-Tite provides more ground clearance and a better overall look. The only rust that'll show will be on the receiver, which I hope I'll be able to touch up as required.My 2007 hitch is pretty rusty but I was going to just sand it down and spray a coat of rustoleum on it followed by black paint. Figuring it's going to look the same with rust after a few years anyway. Already have the ATF cooler picked out, but thanks for the reminder. Great price match find though. Thanks for the tip. Looks like I'll be purchasing the wiring harness for the 2014...
Yeah, I found the same issue. The guy gave me some BS excuse about them removing the phone number from their "Contact Us" page during times of high call volume. Meanwhile, I called them twice within the same hour and got through fairly quickly both times, once I found the number.I couldn't find a phone number for eTrailer on their website. You mentioned calling them. Can you provide that?
Still mulling that one over. I live in the rust belt. Lot's a salt, slush, etc. On my 06 I stowed van side wires in the jack vault and ran it through the hatch when in use. When I re-wired my trailer, I made sure that I had enough wire so that the connection stays inside the van while in use. No exposure to the elements.Are you planning to install the harness and just run it on the inside of the vehicle through the lift gate, or somehow through the bottom and along the hitch to be permanently on the outside?
Did you ever call etrailer and try to get the 10% discount?Awesome. Thanks for the number. I’ll call them tomorrow.
Did they say when you would get it? They seem to be in short supply. Amazon says "usually ships in 1 - 2 months". CARiD had to contact the vendor to ensure that it would be shipped within the 7-10 business day time frame that CARiD's website says. Other sites just say "out of stock".Yes. Etrailer honored the price match with 10% discount. Just heard back from them today. Looks like I’ll be removing the rear bumper to mount it. Thanks again for the tip.
