Does anyone know how to put it back together? Thanks in advance.

The problem is the retaining bump has worn off. I had my brother weld a new bump after I purchased a replacement.
The washer goes on the end closest to the frame. When you pull on the handle the spring compresses.
If you look closely at the end of spring or bit closer to the handle you find remains of the bump. I suppose a person could drill and tap a small hole and put short screw in. I don't know that I would want to drill all the through which would weaken the shaft and could cause a failure when you're in the trailer.
