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 work just fine, you will just need to place your foot on either side of the receiver and move it in and out until you find the sweet spot. It used to be believed that the sensor would not work, but after many customers let us know it worked fine we are happy to report you won't have an issue.

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.
