I have not towed a Ranger so I can't give first hand information like Syd. 

I have talked with the customer service center (1-800-228-2481 ) at REMCO Towing ( several times in the past and found them to be very helpful, knowledgeable and willing to answer questions about towing a vehicle.  I have spoken with a customer service representative at REMCO Towing about the 55 MPH limit on towing a 2WD Ranger.  He explained that Ford has had this towing restriction in place for several years and that it was imposed to prevent damage to the drive train.  He also pointed out that the battery may run down during towing and one must stop every few hours and run the engine to recharge the battery.

I have learned that manufacturers provide warnings for many different reasons.  Many times it reflects a very minor risk that requires numerous conditions to exist before that risk is realized.  When I finally chose a toad I went with one that only had the restriction of not driving over 65 mph.

Here's an alternative way to read a dipstick.

Point the dipstick upwards and watch the oil carefully.  It will pause for a split second where the oil level is.

Hi Marcia,

We have a 2551 that is similar as far as the bedroom and bathroom area of the 2552.  If you are traveling alone with your parrots and cats then you could remove the mattress from one of the beds and use that area for them.

If you at times need more sleeping arrangements then maybe the sofa can be used.

Hi Emly,

I would email the factory.  PC is exceptional in helping its customers, and if you are looking for a particular width for a particular need they would be able to answer your question..

We had our sofa custom made for our 2551 so ours is different then what others have.

I would call the factory and tell them what model year you are interested in and they can supply the info.

We were traveling home in late fall the first year we started RV'ing and would need to winterize soon after we got home.  Since I had never winterized our travel trailer before I needed some help/direction as to what to do.  I was fortunate enough to park next to a very helpful owner of a RV dealership.  This gentleman gave me some very good information and very valuable insight into what needed to be done.  He showed me the Camco winterizing kit that was installed on his unit and explained it use.  I installed the winterizing kit after we got home and have used one ever since.  The installation was simple and straightforward.

Our 2008 2350 did not have the winterizing kit installed but I was pleased to see it came standard on our 2012 2551.

Here is a link to a couple of sites that sell the kit.  Using a winterizing kit such as this eliminated the need to put antifreeze in the fresh water tank.  On our 2012 2551 we winterize for less than a gallon and one half.

This is a very comprehensive list that will be most helpful. Thanks to you and Tom for putting it together.
Also, may I add a corollary to item 16.  I also blow out the flush lines in the San-Con.

We have our insurance through AARP The Hartford.  It is $437 a year and is valid for the full 12 months.  It also includes an Emergency Motor Home Roadside Assistance as part of the price.  It says they will dispatch the nearest local emergency service to get your RV going again or tow you to the closest qualified facility anywhere in the US or Canada.  We have never used it.  We have worked with The Hartford before on a couple of claims and they were fantastic!

We have 250,000/500,000 liability and $100 deductible.

We have two other cars and our home and boat through them so I know we get some discounts.

I know at times we just put storage insurance on the cars but we have never tried it on the RV since we use it most months.

Beautiful fall colors!!  Glad you shared it with us.

We will be staying in a hotel at the end of November for 1 night.  We haven't done it in many, many years and I am already dreading not having my own bed, sheets, bath etc...  Our PC has really spoiled us.

Here is another option you might want to consider for extra seating.  

We have a 2012 2551  with slide and ordered the swivel seat option for both the driver and passenger seats.  It provides additional seating without taking up any floor space and provides a sense of openness to the floor plan.  In addition, you can have a small side table added.  We found both the extra storage and seating to be very useful.

Yes, the longer screws were for the corners but the screw count and size I provided was for a 2551 with a corner shower.  The 2350 has a different style shower and the screw count and size might be different.

We replaced the screws in the shower awhile back.  See my post,1876.msg14578/topicseen.html#msg14578
