Did you get installation instructions when you bought the hitch?
I poked around on the drawtite website, and was eventually able to locate installation instructions.
I did have to tell it what year, make, and model of car I had, then select which hitch I had, before I could get to the install instructions.
If I remember correctly, e-trailer and U-Tube has lots of hitch install videos as well. When installing the hitch, remember to install T-Connector wiring afterwards as well. Luckily, our pre-owned 2014 CRV had its rear hitch and rear wiring already installed (by previous owner).
I suggest looking at the etrailer.com videos and instruction sheets.
I also suggest that instead of cutting out a rectangular hole in the plastic under panel, you try instead to cut three sides of the rectangle, bend the plastic out of the way during installation, and then bend it back, figuring out a way to have it not droop.
There are some comments in the reviews about that.

You will have to get on your hands and knees to see where you trimmed that sound deadening material. With regard to the facia, just make 2 parallel cuts and push/fold the plastic piece up behind the bumper facia. The Curt hitch crossbar is completely hidden.
Sorry using Tapatalk and I am not seeing your signature but that makes sense. I am not worried about seeing the crossbar I just don't want to see sloppy or unprofessional looking holes in the under panel.
To do the hitch install on 2015 V, it looks like a large hole must be cut in the underside panel. It appears the hole would only be visible by getting down on your hands/knees to look or when the vehicle is on a lift. The crossbar will be visible.
Follow the directions as to size of opening and you should be fine. Just for clarity, the opening should be a rectangle, not a hole, which would be quite obvious. Once the hitch is in place, you won't even notice, as the hitch blocks most of the view.
Hi everyone, I’m new here. Looking forward to contributing.
I have a 2016 EX. It has the basic 16” steel rims on it. I’d like to update to alloy rims without breaking the piggy bank.
My thought was to by older Honda rims and use my 16” tires.

Just bought a "new-to-me" 2013 EX-L, fresh off a lease -- it was a private purchase and not directly from Honda. After getting the car home, the iMid display will not turn off. Even when the car is off, the display remains backlit, which I'm sure will eventually drain the battery. I brought...
My 2016 Honda CRV is on its third set of rear brakes since it was purchased. This is my first Honda. My previous VWs and Mazdas used to get 80 - 100 km so I know it's not my braking. The mechanic said CRVs of this year are having issues. Warranty is not covering the parts as it's 33k and a...
