Recommended Trailer Hitch and Wiring for 2012 Acura MDX


Hello. Ive purchased many hitches from your site. Im planning to buy part code 13354 for my 2012 Acura MDX. Would you please recommend wire harness options I can evaluate? Thank you.

Thanks so much for your repeat business!

Starting with the trailer hitch itself, the Curt Class III Round Tube Receiver Hitch # 13354 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2012 Acura MDX and will work great. The hitch is custom-fit for the vehicle, so it will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation.

I have attached an installation video on your Acura that you can use for reference.

Then for a custom-fit wiring harness, I recommend the Tekonsha T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness # 118424. This will install by connecting directly to the built-in ports located behind the driver's-side interior trim panel in the rear cargo area. It will provide you with a 4-Way at the bumper that will connect with and power your trailer's basic signal lights. The three available harnesses for your vehicle will all install the same way, but I recommend the Tekonsha because of their fantastic reputation for producing reliable and long lasting electrical products for vehicles and trailers.

I have again included an installation video that you can check out.

In order to tow your trailer, you will also need a ball mount and hitch ball if you do not have one already. I have attached an excellent article that explains how to choose the best one for your setup, along with a link that will take you to our available selection.
