Roadmaster Baseplate on 2010 CRV install

Heads up to those that are getting this. You may need to elongate some of the roadmaster receiver bracket holes. Mine were off perhaps an eighth of an inch on two of the holes. On closer inspection, the nuts on the two holes that honda welded to the supports were welded on off center and just enough so they didn't line up.
Not a big deal but took a few on and off attempts to shave off enough with an old drill.

Receiver tube is on now, waiting for the sun to set and get out of my eyes before finishing.

Still have to find a spot to mount the 6 way....

Thanks for the heads up

Own Honda goes to the shop on Thursday for its new baseplace. I wasn't crazy about pulling the front off DW new Honda!

lol yes it's always hard to take apart a brand new unit..

Already need a new windshield, less than 500 miles on the Car and a stone hit it on the highway :( That really hurt

The install went fairly smooth, MUCH easier than the ford focus I did last time.Some minor fit issues but overall not too bad

Smile 2010 crv

I put the Roadmaster base plate on my 2010 Honda CRV myself and found it to be a "very" easy job. Very good instructions, easy to remove the bumper cover and no sheet metal to cut. Did the job without a lift in my driveway in 3 hours.

LOL If someone has a bad day welding and puts out the one unit in a thousand that is off by a small amount, you can bet I will get it lol

I think the bracket I received was also off by the slightest as well as the top nut that was off center The side of the bumper support on the drivers side needed a little persuasion with the rubber hammer also: not enough to worry about and elongating the holes used up a good half hour as I wanted to remove as little stock as possible...... Murphy has a thing with me sometimes O_O

Just got some Class l and ll locking hitch pins for the quick release brackets. I figure I had better replace the hitch pins as you never know when a kid will try to be funny and pull one. Something you might not catch if you use a padlock instead to lock them on even if you do a careful walk around...
Speaking of walk arounds when I was doing general contracting way way back I found that kids had taken the eager beaver trailer chains and hooked them to the air lines on the ten wheeler dump. Glad I was diligent about equipment checks ... thank goodness for good habits .. That would have been a loss of a few hours lost chasing down new lines for sure. It goes to show, however, you can never be too careful ... hence the locking hitch pins.
