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".

We have a Roadmaster Falcon-II tow bar.  It folds and stores easy as seen here.  It also folds more compact, collapsing the triangle, then folded horizontally, though I've never did that as I never had a need to do so.  I also like it's ease of hooking to the tow because the tow bar expands and contracts to help in aligning it to the tow vehicle.  Once latched, I roll or dirve the tow backwards to lock the bar in the extended position, then do all the cables and wire harness at that point.

Tow bar shown collapsed, folded & latched vertically.


Shown hooked up to my previous tow vehicle with bar fully extended, ready to leave.
My new tow Jeep Liberty looks exactly the same except my wire cable today is thicker and coily with more wires for the braking system I use, a Unified by US Gear.


I know nothing about the Blue Ox.  Maybe it has the same types of features.

It looks interesting Tom.  I wish I could make your picture bigger.

BTW:  Our 2350 does have the fresh water tank and water pump in that rear compartment under the bed, just like all 2350s.  The other items you mentioned are mounted as follows.
- subwoofer under front dinette bench
- inverter under the main clothes closet
- furnace under the inverter or fridge....I can't recall which one.

Okay, a question......What is the "maid's quarters" ?

I think you who have the inverter under the bed, have some nice drawers under the main closet.  We don't have drawers there.  Just a venting cabinet door with the inverter inside.

The reason I ask this is that I have not really found a good spot to stash 4 chairs without taking up lots of space. David
I understand.  It's just us two with a model 2350, so two chair sacks are no issue with the large outdoor storage compartment.

I've noticed a 2350 with a slide these days has a much smaller outdoor storage compartment.  What did they do, place the furnace or inverter under the bed?  Between that and the outdoor drawer, the under-bed exterior storage got significantly smaller.

Dayum, I would have bet a hundred bucks my '07 hood was steel without going to look. Just did......L. G.
I heard the hood went fiberglass long before I ever owned a PC.  I think the fiberglass hood goes back many years.

My dad owned an 87 Ford Econoline van and his hood rusted from the inside out fairly quickly.  It was a common problem on many.  Maybe Ford changed to fiberglass for that reason.

At least bugs and hail bounce off it better  Smile
