Video: How to attach a Blue Ox Ascent tow bar

Andy Pargh
This is Part 2 of a two-part interview I did with Jeff Jubin, the Dealer Development Manager of Blue Ox, and features the factory recommended technique for attaching a Blue Ox Ascent tow bar behind a motorhome.

The reason I contacted Blue Ox to produce this interview was that I was seeing conflicting information online and wanted to ask questions directly to the factory. No payment, free product or any consideration whatsoever was provided for this 20-minute interview.

Here’s the rundown. Times are approximate:
