Yes you can tow it behind a MH with 4 wheels on the ground. Page 259 of the owners manual explains the procedure and what to do to protect the transmission. You must follow these procedures to the letter or you will damage the trans. Below is the link to the HONDA owners manual.

This year of pilot had a recall on the transmission to fix the problem below. I would go to HONDA's web site and make sure this recall has been completed before towing, the site will need your complet vinbnumber to determine ifnthe recall has been done. Here is the recall info: Summary:*On some mini vans, sport utility and passenger vehicles, certain operating conditions can result in heat build-up between the countershaft and secondary shaft second gears in the automatic transmission, eventually leading to gear tooth chipping or gear breakage.

Consequence:*Gear failure could result in transmission lockup, which could result in a crash.
