Ron, that's a good point. Might be worth it to check just to be sure the spare is there.

Hopefully Dale and Cindy got the information they needed. I certainly learned quite a bit.

If you have not yet done so, look in the spare tire compartment.  If it fits, it might be in the center tube wrapped with a rag to prevent it from rattling around.

Like others have said, PC supplies a generic 6 ton bottle jack that is not supplied by Ford.  But I do believe the tire iron is a "Ford" item.

I would also carry a 3/4" x 2-3 foot water pipe to extend the tire iron for leverage.

I used our PC issued bottle jack one time when rolling off our Lynx Leveling blocks.  The Lynx wedge flipped up and got jammed between the exhaust tail pipe and the stack of blocks.  Jacking up the rear tire provided the solution.  That happened in Death Valley in that gravel parking lot where you can park overnight to sleep, located in the middle of nowhere.

These are great ones!  I am in LOVE with #phoenixcruiserfits  It would never run the risk of getting overly cluttered with other types of photos, and would be easy to click the hashtag and see a full history (once we get one) of all the photos that have been tagged as thus.  LOVE IT!

I'm also going to use #rightsizeRV, because that will get us included in a broader category with other brands.  Let's use both!

Since I am the third owner, guess one of them decided to keep those items.  Guess I need to buy a jack or depend on emergency roadside service.  Never used the jack on my previous RV so hope to have a similar experience with the PC.

Since biodiesel came up in the conversation, Lichtsinn Motors RV up in Forest City, IA, the second biggest volume wise Winnebago dealer in the country, recently did a video on Sprinter upkeep and maintenance. They sell a lot of Sprinter RV's there.
In it they stated that MB is slowly backing off their no more than 5% bio allowed, heading upwards in that allowance with instructions that the oil needs to be changed more often if more than the 5% is used consistently.
The new Ford Transit and the Ram ProMaster diesels are both ok for up to 20% usage, again with more frequent oil changes. It's no big deal......just change the oil.


By the way, what's happened to the original poster Dale & Cindy?

 Coffee I like the idea of that kind of energy management......well, except the part where it could turn off my coffee pot!

When I bought my 2350 recently (2012 model), the previous owner indicated that no jack or lug wrench that came with the PC.  I searched the forum but could not find any info as to whether these items would have been provided with the PC when originally purchased. 

Should the 2350 have come with these items, and if so, where would they have been located?  I do have emergency road service through Geico but having the option to change a tire would be a good thing.  I just didn't want to buy a jack if there might be one on the rig that I haven't located.  Any info is appreciated.  Thanks.

I have the same surge guard but in the portable model. Energy manament I am talking about is much more than surge protection. It monItors your use and can shut down things as needed and restart them when you stop using something. Say you start a coffee maker and the A/C comes on, it might tourn off the electric water heater or the refer until you stop using the coffee maker. I had to watch the monitor lights to see what was happening. Really sweet.
