Great product and easy to follow detailed instructions.



by:

I purchased the accessory kit just to be sure I had everything I needed when installing my tow bar system. once I knew what are the components did, it made perfect sense to have this kit. This is a great kit.



by:

All advertisement parts were included. The one thing I would change is to havecall locks work off the same key. Carrying 3 different keys is unnecessary these days. I have a set of the master lock one key fits all locks in a 3 lock set. Maybe Blueox can work on that one.

Great

worked as advertised, installation is the same labor as other tow bars. The Avail tow bar is sturdy and able to tow my 7K lbs vehicle.

We only use Blue Ox tow products at our business. We sell the Patriot braking system to all new flat-tow customers. They are easy to set up and they work great.



by:

The kit provides just what I need to complete the tow package. Using an Avail Tow Bar. I've used it for towing a Lincoln MkT behind a Jayco Greyhawk -- 6 trips totaling 4,200 miles in the first 9 months of 2017. When not towing the cover is great!



by:

Professionally installed. Piece of cake to use. Takes about 2 minutes to hook up mainly because I have to string lights to the back of the car. Installer recommended non-kit lights since there were problems with some makes/models LED bulbs.

Fast delivery ! Have not had a chance to install this item yet.

What a breath of fresh air! Actual friendly, knowledgeable, fast and accurate help. Just what I needed. Great customer service from Bailey and the others at etrailer!

Works good. It was easy to install, however the connectors it came with were extreme hard to crimp down on. Ended up using the all weather connectors recommended in the etrailer installation video.

The Blue Ox system is excellent.

  • Which Pin of Blue Ox 6-Way to 7-Way is for 12 Volt Charge Circuit
    What is confusing and annoying about 6-way trailer wiring plugs is that there is two commonly used wiring diagrams used with only difference being that the brake output and 12 volt charge circuits are swapped. So on the 6-way side of the Blue Ox 7-Wire to 6-Wire Electrical Cord and Outlet # BX88206 the center pin of the 6-way is the 12 volt charge circuit. We have confirmed this with Blue Ox. The question you mentioned has been taken down and was done by someone who no longer works here...

  • Troubleshooting Running Light Circuit that is Hot all the Time on Flat Towed Vehicle
    It sounds like there is either a short between the 12 volt accessory circuit of your tow bar wiring and the running light circuit or the two circuits are wired backwards. I would use a circuit tester to test the pins of the 7-way on your tow vehicle to make sure only the 1:00 pin has voltage at all times as that should be the 12 volt accessory circuit and if that checks out test the pins of the 6-way on the opposite end of the adapter when it is plugged in. See which pin is hot all the...

  • Installation of Blue Ox 88206 Flat Tow Adaptor Cable with Differing Center Pin Functions
    The center pin of the 7-way is wired for a reverse light circuit. The Blue Ox wiring 7-way to 6-way has to do with 7-way trailer wiring circuits and reduces to the 6-way input wiring for the tow vehicle. The 7-way is labeled as open at the 7-way end center pin and there is not wiring attached to that pin location on the connecting harness which does use the other 6 function which will then match the 6-way input pin locations.

  • Flat Towed 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lights Only Work When Parking Lights Are On
    To me it sounds like there may have been an error during installation of the Blue Ox Towing Accessories Kit for Ascent and Avail Tow Bars # BX88308 on your 2021 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I recommend reviewing your wiring, as well as checking your ground connections are secure and clean and on a rust free, bare metal surface. I have included an installation video of # BX88308 on a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee for you to check out as well. I also have attached a wiring schematic for you to check...

  • Tail Lights Work On 2014 Honda CR-V While Not Connected To Motorhome But Signals Stop After
    It sounds like you are having issues with the tail light circuits on your towed vehicle. If that is the case then I will need to know exactly what components you are using in order to offer specific advice but I can tell you that although the same bulb may be used for normal operation and flat-tow operation, they are not powered by the same source so it could very well be that the turn signals work normally but not when attached to the motorhome. I again will need to know exactly what components...

  • Span and Capacity of Locks Included with Blue Ox Towing Accessories Kit for Avail Tow Bars
    The locking pins included with Blue Ox Towing Accessories Kit for Avail Tow Bars technically do not have an official rating but when used with the tow bar set up for flat towing they would be more than adequate for a 10,000 pound capacity. The hitch lock has a span of 2-11/16 inches which would not be wide enough for a 2-1/2 inch receiver opening. You would need a longer one such as # e98881 which has a span of 3-5/8 inches. A longer Blue Ox lock is not available and so could not be keyed...

  • Identifying Base Plate Kit to Flat Tow 2005 Jeep TJ Wrangler
    Thanks for the picture of the front end of your 2005 Jeep Wrangler. Based on that you have the Blue Ox Fixed Arm Kit part # BX1120. For a tow bar the Blue Ox Avail part # BX7420 is a great option as it's easy to use and allows the vehicle to track well behind the RV. For a kit that includes wiring, locks, and a storage bag you'd want the part # BX88308. And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the...

  • Troubleshooting No Running Lights On A Flat Towed 2011 GMC Acadia
    Hello Marv! I am happy to try to help you troubleshoot the wiring issues you are having on your 2011 GMC Acadia. This is an interesting issue you have described, and there are a few things you will want to check. First, we want to confirm that we do in fact have a solid running light signal coming from your RV. The running light circuit should be at the "11 o'clock" pin on the RV 7 way. We suggest going in with a wire tester like part # PTW2993 and verifying that there is power to the...

If you do not have all of these components I recommend...

The Blue Ox Base Plate Kit # BX1124 is a guaranteed fit for your Jeep Wrangler, and is compatible with your Blue Ox Aventa Tow Bar. You could also use your Jeep's aftermarket bumper with 7/8" tow eyelets with the Blue Ox Aftermarket Off-Road Bumper Adapter # BX88357. For your wiring, I recommend the Roadmaster 4-Diode Universal Wiring Kit for Towed Vehicles - 7-Way...

I was able to confirm this with my contact over at Blue Ox for you. These base plates are compatible with most Blue Ox tow bars, like the Blue Ox Avail Tow Bar - Motorhome Mount - 10,000 lbs # BX7420, which comes with safety cables included. If you also still need tow bar wiring, supplemental braking or a high low adapter to complete your setup,...

  • Can 2019 Chevy Sonic RS with Automatic Transmission be Flat Towed Behind RV
    According to my research it looks like your 2019 Chevy Sonic RS with the automatic transmission can be flat towed behind an RV like what you're asking.

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow 2018 Chevy Equinox Premium
    The Blue Ox base plate kit part # BX1730 is correct for your 2018 Chevy Equinox and will work great with the tow bar part # BX7420. The lighting kit part # BX88308 would work great as well. A brake light relay is not needed for use with the part # DM26VR either. With all of these parts you'd have a complete flat towing setup.

    To flat tow your 2021 Ram 1500 behind your motorhome would require you to first install a base plate kit like the # BLU99FR which is a confirmed fit. In addition to the base plates, you will also need a compatible tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and supplemental braking to flat tow your vehicle. One of the most popular compatible tow bars is the Blue Ox Avail # BX7420 which comes with safety cables. The coiled design helps keep the cables off of the ground. For lighting you can use...
