Hitch and 7 pin connector
I ordered the Honda's standard Odyssey Hitch and transmission cooler. They installed a Curt 7 pin connector. The Honda Hitch has a place for the connector to mount.
Etrailer sells a number of different 7 pin connectors. My Curt connector accepts the four pin connector leaving 4 wires for you to connect, only three are typically used.
Outside of the 4 pin connector there's a white wire that gets connected to the chassis near the connector. A blue wire that goes to the brake controller and is the power line to the trailer's brakes
and a black wire that goes to the plus side of the tow vehicle's battery
The latter three wires are all shown in the video in an earlier post.
There is one more yellow wire that comes out of the back of the connector that is optional.
Also the end of the video shows a wiring diagram.
In the video they show a connector that probably can be mounted on any Hitch. As well they sell a right angle mounting bracket.
As you"ll see I have permanently mounted the connector.
When you buy a hitch be sure to get the Hitch with a 2" receiver.
The location for my connector is the same place Honda would mount a 4 pin connector. The 4 pin connector is tucked in behind the plastic covering of the bumper after connection to the 7 pin connector.
Also mounting the hitch requires cutting the bottom of the plastic bumper, not visible from the rear.
I'm sure etrailer's installation will show this.
The hardest part of the installation was running the wire because I don't have access to a lift. I just drove it up on blocks.
