You should be happy that your RX came with the Towing Package and yet was not in fact used to tow anything. Yes, many purchase just to have those bits installed. Having the transmission cooler alone is worth it, IMO. Should you ever have the need to tow a small U-Haul you will already have the relay installed for the lights as part of this package. Now, if you so desire you can get an OEM, Curts or U-Haul hitch with the wiring and you would be all set for any long trip or even just to transport bicycles. Gives you options if they should ever be needed. If not, all the extra bits are still doing their work behind the scene.
