Question Bad casting maybe?

Sorry about you troubles Trimicon. I have had my Blue Ox aladdin tow bar for 3 years and over 10,000 Miles. it is aluminum and only weighs 37 Lbs. It stays with the motor home. Never had a problem with it. I guess sometimes you get a bad one that slipped through the quality control. Yours must have had a bad casting to break like that.

Thx. Sure hope so. I upgraded to the Avail hoping the difference in the design might buy a little more reliability.

Contact RoadMaster out of Vancouver WA. We use their Falcon 2 tow bar assembly and it has caused us no issues. Unfortunately we purchased the Brake Buddy for auxiliary braking. I am not impressed with the unit and will probably sell it at a loss and go with a more energy efficient under the seat set up. We shall see.
