I just looked at your photos in detail on my PC. That's a good idea putting the Soft Start on the other side and running the wires across. It looks like that saves some effort in preparing the...

Cleaned, lubed, and reassembled mine today. I plan to reinstall it tomorrow. I'm curious to see how it works under load. It definitely works much better on the bench, but the screw shows a little...

Hi Brian,

I think we're in violent agreement. Technically, you're right, but I'm more comfortable with the jack stands right under the tongue where I'm working as opposed to the stabilizers back...

Hi Bob. I think that pin may be tapered. Check the orientation relative to the hole in the crank, trying both sides of the crank and both ends of the pin. Good luck.

I'll leave that to you, Brian. I've never been comfortable using the stabilizers to support that much weight. ETI cautioned when we picked up our 19 not to use them to level the trailer, but they...

I just took ours apart, which turns out to be pretty simple. I let the tongue down on a couple of jack stands and removed the three screws that hold it on. On the bench, I figured out the jack...

The one on our 2013 model is getting hard to crank, but only for part if its travel. I pulled that top cap off while on our last trip and did what I could to lube the gears and "bearings" in that...

The Hullavator looks really cool and may be worth it for a tandem. We've always hauled our kayak inverted because it doesn't have a cover for the double cockpit. Nor does it have a drain plug. ...

Thank you! The Highlander certainly looks good in their analysis. I drove ours this morning, and I have to say I was quite comfortable in it. I'm starting to think there are Honda People and...

So far, in reading past threads on this subject, I've heard nothing but good comments about the Pilot, and the Highlander for that matter. It has certainly served us well.

Any Cautions Before Buying a Honda Pilot For Our 19?

Our Highlander has over 170K miles on it by now, and it's towed our 19' Escape nearly 40K miles, plus a Casita before that. We're considering a Honda Pilot with the 5,000 pound tow package. We test...
