Stabilizer Bar Kit Instructions.
You have opened the Stabilizer Bar Kit
box and are asking yourself:
"Where are the stabilizer bars?"
The answer is: Almost every
motor home needs a different length so we need a "measurement" before we can send them to you. There is no
additional cost for shipping or the bars.
1. The Trailer Toad must have the drawbar (L-shaped shank) attached to the front of the Toad (no need to
tighten the bolts yet, as this is for a "measurement only".
2. Once it is slid into the receiver, put the pin in to make sure the Trailer Toad is in
the correct spot in relationship to the hitch.
3. Take the two "U-shaped" brackets out of the box and find a place on the receiver hitch main
support tube where you can weld the brackets on. The brackets need to be mounted at least 2" wider than the frame of
the Toad. That means they will be about 25" to 30” apart.
4. Hold the bracket in place and measure from the center of the hole on the bracket to the
center of the 5/8" hole on the outer front panel of the Toad where you will mount the stabilizer bars.
me with that measurement; I will send the bars out the same day you call.
recommend you use the Stabilizer Bars every time you tow; they add a lot of support for your drawbar and the opening on your
In the Stabilizer Bar Kit box- you will have two black rod ends that
have a wider body and have 5/8" hole . These go on the Trailer Toad end between the two brackets on the very outer front
edge of the Toad. There are two gold colored jam-nuts that go on the 5/8" rod ends and two 5/8" bolts with nyloc-nuts
to attach the bars to the Toad.
will be two black rod ends that have 1/2" hole in them and silver jam-nuts that go on the rod ends (these jam nuts and rod ends have Left Hand threads so you can adjust the stabilizer bar when it is assembled to get it to fit easier) that will be used on the bracket that is attached to the coach's hitch. There will be two 1/2"
bolts and nyloc-nuts to attach them with. *Customer can supply their own 1/2" washers for spacers between 1/2" rod
end and bracket or tighten bracket down against the rod end.
Once the bars arrive you simply put the jam nuts on the rod ends, spray the threads with some WD40
or lithium grease and thread them into the stabilizer bars. *Remember the smaller black rod ends have Left Hand threads. Once
the bars are assembled you can change the length by securing both rod ends and turning the bar. It will take a few times to
get used to it but in the end, try to have the same amount of threads showing on both rod ends when you have the correct length;
it will make the bar and rod ends more stable that way.
