Replacement Compressor for Blue Ox BX88179 Apollo Braking System


I have a Blue Ox Braking system that I need a new compressor for. Model Number BX88179. Serial Number 13504. Please let me know if you carry this part and how much it is.

I spoke with the nice folks at Blue Ox and found that the Blue Ox Apollo braking system was discontinued in 2008, and any remaining spare parts for it are unfortunately long gone so you'll need to replace your system.

I'd recommend going with a Blue Ox Patriot portable braking system, part # BLU37TR which is our best selling supplemental braking system. The Patriot is fully proportional, it'll apply the towed vehicle's brakes with the same intensity as the motorhome brakes are being applied. The unit also contains a super capacitor that stores enough power so the system can operate for up to 30 minutes in a breakaway situation if power to the unit is interrupted. The Patriot uses a wireless RF remote that mounts cab of the motorhome so you can adjust and monitor the system as needed.
