REDARC TowPro Elite Electric Trailer Brake Controller Install in 2018 Honda Pilot

Question:

Hi, i want to install a TowPro Elite on my Honda Pilot 2018. Can you tell me what else I need to buy in addition to the controller itself? I want to two an Escape Trailer 19foot which I am going to pick up in March. Also, what tire pressure monitoring system do you recommend for my Escape trailer which has 2 axles. Thanks for your help in advance..

All you need to install the Tow Pro Elite Brake Controller part # RED44FR in your 2018 Honda Pilot is the install harness part # 3070-S which matches color for color to the Tow Pro and then plugs into a port under the dash of your Pilot.

The TireMinder TPMS part # TM-A1A-4 is a really great option. It comes with 4 sensors for your tandem axle trailer and checks the pressure every 6 seconds so you always know what the pressure is. This comes with a display you'd have inside your Pilot, but if you'd prefer to have the pressures displayed on your smart phone we have the part # TPMS-APP-4 instead. I attached a review video link to this page for you to check out as well.

Question:

Thanks for your prompt response. I have one more question. One of the reviews (see below) on your website says that I also need a fuse (20A mini fuse). Is it necessary? Once again, I want it for my Honda pilot as in the post.

This is a really good question! So what you'll need to do is check the fuse box like in the picture I attached mentions to see if you have the 20 amp fuse already installed. If it's there currently you are fine, but if not you'll need to add it so that the power wire of the brake controller wiring is active. The fuse box you are looking for is under the dash in the secondary fuse box.
