  1. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Today I had an EcoHitch from TorkLift Central installed and it looks fabulous! I wanted a hitch that would not detract from my new, handsome gray 2017 CR-V and this is the one! A local hitch company installed it after I ordered it off the internet. Definitely the most streamline hitch I could...

    Found this out Does 2017 C-RV have this or anything similar? Looked cool :)
  3. Racks, Hitches, & Towing
    Just bought this and found it has a hidden towbar ( possibly electrically powered). I am not sure if this is a factory fit or after market and have no info on it. Does anyone have similar and can scan a manual for me? Tony

    If you have the Smart Entry Remote I have actually found a good use for the built-in hidden metal key. You may know how when you hold the unlock button down the windows and roof open. However they do not close using the lock button. Well you can close or open all the windows and roof with the...

    I thought I would make a thread for little hidden gems that you find in your CRV so that you can share with others. To kick things off I found a handy little pocket in the lower dash above my left knee.

    I plan to put my new Pioneer FHX720BT to replace the factory radio this weekend. There are three possible places to put the mic: 1. The driver's side sun visor; 2. The steering wheel column cover, like the picture below from this post 3. Hide it under the map lights area: Place #3 is the...

    I came to these forums last week and saw that someone posted that U-Haul is selling Valley hitches, when I ordered the hitch it looked nothing like it. It came with the u-bolt just like the Hidden Hitch. When I called U-Haul they said that they recently switched it to a Draw-Tite/Hidden Hitch...

    I have read the posts/threads regarding hitches. I thought the Curt was the best one for looks and utility, however, one poster said they rust quickly because of poor quality painting. I am looking for a no drill hitch that is as hidden as is possible that will enable me to pull our...

    I just became a member of the CRV family. Albeit an older 97 model. I have to say I love it so far. It came with a trailer hitch receiver but no insert nor ball. I believe it's the flat looking receiver (verses square) that's for towing 1000lb. Any idea where I can find the insert and ball to...
  11. Gen 3: 2007-2011 (UK 2008-2012) CR-V
    Just wondering if the CR-V (CDTi EX) has any undocumented/hidden features that can be enabled (in software?) by the dealer. My Land Rover Discovery had various things that could be enabled, like auto-door-locking, (As did my Peugeot). I was thinking of things like auto-door-lock, daytime...

    I have a hitch on the car but don't need it any more - used it to put the boat in the water, sold the boat. I'm in Houston and it's heavy. Easy to install, I can do it for you (work for beer...). Come get it!! $75.

    I just finished installing the Hidden Hitch and OEM Honda wiring harness. Total install time for both was 4 hours...I took it easy but probably could shave off only maybe an hour by rushing things. The prior posts were very helpful in helping me anticipate the challenges of getting the heavy...

    Would those of you who have installed a Hidden Hitch or Curt Manufacturing class III hitch please share your experiences and observations based upon the following concerns? I plan to add either the Curt (#13555) or Hidden Hitch (#87440) class III hitch to haul 2 - 4 mountain bikes or a small...

    After Talking With Hidden Hitch Tech Support, And Going To A Professional Installer ( U-haul). The Hidden Hitch # 60869 Fits Just Fine. The Instructions And Diagrams Are Confusing. They Don't Use Any Of The Pretapped Hole. Sorry For The Mispost.
