Sticky tow bar

Anyone got a good lube for a stuck Roadmaster Falcon towbar?
I got it all way out but but can't get it smaller for storage.

Is yours a Falcon 2? Mine has one button each rail of the bar that locks it in place. Are the frozen so they can't be pushed down? I wouild sugest using some kind of penetrating oil. Lock your bars in the vertical position so that the oil can seap down the shafts.

Silicone spray lube is what has been in both tow bars I have owned in the owners manuals to use as a lubricant.

That works for me, (on my similar 11 year old Roadmaster All-Terrain tow bar).

Roadmaster recommends cleaning the locking mechanisms and the arms with Vroom and then lubricating well with dry silicone spray.

What's Vroom?
I have a spray can of Vroom "starting fluid", is that what you mean?
Wondering.

Ah, NO, Vroom is a liquid cleaner. You can purchase Vroom on the Roadmaster website or at Camping World.
