Blue Ox Anti-Sway Bar connection
Would like to know if anyone has seen this happen.
As you see in the pic, the right side of the anti-sway bar connection is broken.
I will try to describe the situation starting with the left side connections. The left side is toward the bottom of photo. These are intact and consist of a large snap / button pin, a thin approx. 2 inch metal plate that is the same shape as the "cut out area" where the pin is, and a little metal divot that fits into the small notch at the edge of the thin metal plate. The snap / button pin connects into the anti-sway bar itself.
The pieces on the right side came off in our hands after the last trip. We have the large snap pin and the thin metal plate, but the little divot is gone. The little divot appears to just hold the thin metal plate in place. Asking the experienced travelers (we are newbies) for some information, particularly if anyone has seen this before, is it a frequent occurrence, what causes it, and what to do about it? We are tempted to put the thin metal plate back on with a metal screw then reinsert the large snap pin.
This is a new trailer and hitch (July 2016).
