Is there any other reason for added demand on the power steering system when towing?

In any case, it is a non-issue on the Pilot. Honda does not offer or require it.[/QUOTE]

The only idea I have heard of as to why is that a weight distributing hitch puts more pressure on the front wheels. That's shaky since they recommend you not use a WDH. I'm running without either (WDH nor PSP) for now, but planning a WDH in the future. The factory tow package on the 1st generation Pilots included a PSC. Not sure about the others.

Towing accessories question

Didn't know that about the first generation, Charles. Starting with the second generation, there is no such thing as a factory tow package.

With the third generation, some content that used to come standard is now provided as dealer-installed accessories- guess they had to offset the cost of new electronic gizmos and transmissions without a big price increase.

Makes sense about WDH. Also a non-issue in this case, since the OP is only wanting to tow a 13'er.
