Can etrailer Trailer Hitch e98840 Be Installed On 2021 Honda Pilot With Hands Free Lift Gate Sensor?


The Hitch that is recommended with my vehicle is item # e98840. On your Website it states that the hitch is not compatible with the Hands free Tailgate. Does this mean that the hitch cant be installed or is it that the hands free tailgate option will be disabled or damage during installation?


Expert Reply:

I would be happy to clarify.

With the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver # e98840 installed on your 2021 Honda Pilot the hands free lift gate sensor will be blocked and will not detect your foot rendering it unusable. To be able to regain use of the sensor you will need to go to your local Honda dealership and pick up the relocation bracket part number I08L91-TG7-100C. This will move the sensor out from where the hitch is installed.

If you can tell me what you are planning on using your trailer hitch receiver for, I would be happy to recommend any other components you may need.

I included an install video of the # e98840 for you to take a look at.
