Tow Bar issue
« on: July 09, 2013, 12:13:08 PM »
You know one day chicken the next day feathers.  On the way back to the garage, the tow bar stopped locking in place - one of the legs.  I have an aluminator tow bar by demco.  One of the arms moves in and out very freely, can hear a bit of a catch when fully extended.  No info on their web site.  Any thoughts?

I dunno from Demco but on my Jurassic model BlueOx arms I have to lube the crap out of them regularly.  And by "regularly" I mean every other trip.  The bus has sat all winter now while we are on the boat - next week when I fire it up I'll have to flush the rust out of the arms in order to have any hope of them working. PBlaster and white grease - lots of 'em.

Good call Bob, little spray here and there, and a little dab over there, and good to go.

Thanks
