That is a funny story.  LOL  I wonder how well they handle their visits to the new car dealer to get their first complimentary oil change?  Maybe they get a new car every 3000 miles.

Just having fun here with rmmpe.

I do understand their decision.  I would surely miss the 3rd captain seat we have in our 2350.  Getting it back in a 2552 would be hard to resist.

I would contact the factory.  Either they send a new pair free or at cost.

So far, driving the secondary roads, as we prefer, we're getting over 10 MPG, which we can live with.  I wish we could get a consistent 10mpg, but can't with a tow vehicle all the time.

I know what  2552 is, but what is a 2552s?  "S" means "Sprinter", right?  They don't make a 2552 on a Sprinter, do they?

Are you referring "S" = slideout?

Here I go hijacking another thread.

There is a section in my 2007 E350 owners manaul on how to program a new remote, though I thought my chassis lacked the receiver.

I bought new and used remotes off Ebay for our 2006 Jeep Liberty, 1998 Grand Prix, and 5 different C5 Corvettes.  All remotes were easily programed per the instructions in the owners manuals.

When it came to the Corvettes, I bought those used cars needing a little TLC and thay always lacked the remotes, spare keys, owners manuals, and other add-on stuff.  I always supplied the new owner with everything, just like it was a brand new vehicle.  The feel-good factor is a pleasure to watch.  When they pay that much, they deserve it all.

It seems a hit-or-miss whether or not your Ford chassis is already equipped with keyless entry.  You might only need to buy fobs and program them per the instructions in your owner's manual.

For me, if my 07 Ford E350 chassis was fob-ready, I'd buy & program them to be more "complete", but honestly would leave them home to minimize the bulk in our pockets.  There are so many keys on our key chains because we tow, and there are keys for all that too.  My key chain resembles the bunch my grade school gym teacher in the 60's had clipped to his belt.  Adding a fob in my jean pocket will just make an uncomfortable situation much worse.

I am just guessing here.....wildly guessing.

Ford went to a fiberglass hood when they restyled the van body in 1990, retiring the boxy look of the 70s and 80s.
Ford changed back to a steel hood when they restyled the front grill in 2008 to the rough and tough industrial look of today.

Tom is right.  Sorry about that.  Embarrassed

You were right; chair went in just fine. Still concerned about the bent bars, although it seems to be working ok.
Since you are concerned of long term reliability, I would call the supplier and ask for a second set of seat tracks.  If the damaged ones fail you later, then you have a replacement.

Starting 11 years back, we missed 4 vacation years in a row.

- My wife Irene had a severe MS exaserbation
- Our son ended up in a hospital to control his Crones disease
- I was laid-off work for over a year, over-lapping two camping/traveling seasons.
- Irene started a new job, and had no vacation time.
 
Many people go through a stormy season or two or 3 or......whatever.  At least we got through them and are back to doing great things.

We bought these two things, a Rhino sewer kit from Walmart, and a Super Tube from D&W Inc.  The diameter of the tube is perfect to accomodate the sewer kit.  Not any more than need-be.  The tube is made to your length requirement.  I ordered mine at 60".  I plan to mount one end just behind the main fuel tank on the cross frame there, and the other end going out sideways, just under the main maserator area.

Trudy,

I too had the threaded stems punture the carton.  Fortunately for me, there was no damage to anything.

It is interesting to read that Billy finds the original captain seats uncomfortable.  I recall someone else saying the same, but for us, we find the earlier style ones in our 2007 to be "Very" comfortable.

BTW:  Sorry, but I do have something in the brew......  As Billy is creating with a fence post, I bought a storage tube to store a sewer hose.  But mine is made for the application with mounting brackets.  $25 for the thing, but shipping was $35.  I didn't want to share until after I mounted it.  I wanted a backup to the maserator pump, in-case the pump gives trouble during a trip, and also for an extended stay where we'd want something that drains the waste as we create it.

Replacing the barrel chair with a 3rd captain seat in a 2350 is so very easy.  Youll be done in 15-20 minutes after you gather your tools together.

BTW:  That's not my idea.  I only provided some good pics of the "After".

The Demco looks like a nice product.   ThumbsUp
