For those of you who tow with Honda Odyssey, make sure you TV is level if you tow [at] night.

I was recently followed very closely by a handicapped individual in a Honda Odyessy. This person was carrying an electric cart on a hitch mounted platform. The added weight on their rear pointed their headlights so high that even on dim they were blinding me...
This problem certainly isn't unique to the Odyssey, but it is particularly a problem for vehicles which have relatively soft rear suspensions, which includes front-heavy passenger vehicles such as minivans and SUVs. The Sienna has a headlight level control in fancier models, but not in mine; instead, I keep the van nearly level (and thus headlights aimed appropriately) by using air bags in the rear springs so the back end doesn't sag.

For those who like weight-distibuting hitches (WDH), maintaining headlight aim is one benefit of cranking the WDH to force the front axle to carry more load than it would otherwise, and the rear less load.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
