I suggest the OP go to a scale and get the RV and the combined rig weighed. The answer will then be self evident. Besides, in addition to some surprises, the OP will know how to handle RV load out....

Can't comment on the chronology of the Honda recommendation (or lack thereof) but I can comment thus.

When I had my CUV (FWD Santa Fe with the 3.3L V6 / 3500 tow capacity) i installed the WDH...

I suggest you forget about it. You won't be able to get it out and it won't hurt anything.

BTW - I take it that you mean the spring-loaded rod that holds the TP in the holder assembly. See, when I...

Balanced right you can tow over 65 just as well as under. I had the 17Z up to 75 on more than one occasion briefly while overtaking. With ST tires limited to 65 and the trailer a little overweight...

I guess I will wait and see why it is he can't install a WDH and what his pre-hookup weight distribution is. These threads are chick full of threads on towing, sway and the like for him to not know...

Yes, I had the same thing on my 2010. Not an issue at all. If it bothers you, you could but a tiny blob of something (epoxy?) opaque on the outside to stop the light coming in.
