I thought I may have done something wrong so I had a RV tech that retired from Colton RV look at it and he assured me the brackets are installed correctly (There is not much room where the brackets have to attach). This was supposed to be a bolt on simple application. Blue Ox is working with me to get it resolved, but right now I am sitting on a $630.00 product I cant use.


Have you asked about the instructions being backwards? Ours is installed on a 2017 redhawk 29xk and installed just fine once we figured out the instructions were wrong.

I think I have the updated instructions They have me installing the the frame bracket on the drivers side. Exhaust is on the passenger side. I did it just like this video.

Yes I did adjust. I wasn't comfortable with the amount of adjustment.https://goo.gl/photos/ZgYwhTtqNkBaR1AK9

You can see the amount of threads in the bar

I also noticed in your photos, that the right side bracket that mounts to the sway bar bracket does not have the side flanges with set screws that keep it from moving side ways. It shows them on the Blue OX instructions. https://www.rvupgradestore.com/v/vsp...structions.pdf

Looks to me like they made it cheaper to make. I bought a Supersteer SS450, much better quality and lower cost.

Yes I looked at the ss450 and it looked identical to the blue ox. Cept for the newer blue ox eliminated the the sidea adjustments on the axle bracket. But that wouldn't account for the 1-1/4 inch discrepency

An update to my Tiger Trak Install. Connor at Blue Ox got me into Colton RV to have them check my installation. The Tech took the bracket off and moved it down the frame what little he could and turned the top frame plate with the chamferd rods to the inside of the coach, That gave him enough to get about 10 threads into the bar. He said it was a real struggle to get it to attach. Bottom line, it is not a simple bolt on application in my case. It also cost me another 300.00. But I am glad I have it installed.
