Maybe you can call Blue Ox and describe the problem? They may be able to give instuctions on how to fix it yourself or send you the parts to do it, etc. If not, they possibly can direct you to the nearest authorized service center or if not, give you the instructions on how to send it to the factory.

800-228-9289 (Business Hours) or 402-385-3051
800-566-9869 (After Hours) or 402-385-3051

One of our venders RVupgrages.com has a factory rebuilt Aventa LX for $548.00. After about 130,000 miles on our current towbar we decided to get one. Check them out. I have purchased from them before and like their prices and service.

If you can get it back to Florida, the Hitching Post of Ocala is an authorized Blue Ox repair center. Nice folks to do business with and they do good work as well.

Otherwise you can ship it back to Blue Ox for a rebuild, or order the parts and do it yourself.

Smile hitch repair

Thank you for the reply's, I called blue ox and they refered me to my local rv repair shop 8 miles from me. They did say i could send it to them to be repaired but it might be easier for the dealer to fix it like they have in the past. They (blue ox) said they can send a Kit if need be so i will drop it by tomorrow. I did see the new Aventa listed on their web site for 549.00 but i like the light aladin but will keep it in mind.
thanks again paul
