I ordered my X in January while the accessory hitch was free and soon took delivery in May after I got the call to upgrade my 70D to a 90D for faster delivery (in March). Like other early owners, I believe I got the tow hitch. I have the hitch adapter that came in the lunchbox. I also opened up the hitch cover in the rear and found the tow hitch connection and a connector. However, I do not have the tow mode option on the 17-inch so I don't know if I can actually tow. What does tow mode do? Can I tow without it? Also, what does this wire connector do? If I can tow, do you recommend any trailer? I never towed anything but now I have to transport some large items so either I can buy a Honda Ridgeline or get a trailer. I should have listened to @ohmman's advice.
