Step 1: Park on a level surface
Before attempting to disconnect your RV tow bar, make sure both vehicles are parked on a flat surface and are parallel with each other. Trying to disconnect your RV and dinghy vehicle at an extreme angle may cause the tow bar to bind.
Also, be sure to place each vehicle in park and engage the emergency brake.
Step 2: Disconnect the wiring and cables
Unplug the dinghy tow wiring harness from the RV and store it in a safe location. Also, disconnect the breakaway.
Then, unhook the safety cables from the RV hitch and base plate attachment tabs.
Step 3: Release the tow bar arms
Pull up on the latches of the tow bar arms to release the locking mechanism. Remove the lynch pins from the attachment tabs to disconnect the arms from the base plate.
On many tow bar models, the arms can be retracted by holding the latch mechanism and sliding the arms in.
