You pull out one pin at the bottom of each of the two legs of the ladder, fold the ladder up and drop it into the slot.  Very easy and only takes about two seconds.

In-store, Ron. Just at $20.00 each in the small RV section near Auto Parts.
Thanks Bob,  I will first see if the Ultra Breeze is low enough.  If it's too tall, I'll check out Walmart.

Marilyn, as Tom said, it's very easy to pull out the pins and fold up the ladder. It slips back into its hinges and holds itself up and when you're ready to fold it again you just raise it a bit, fold down and replace the pins. I also worried about how much trouble it would be to get in the back compartment but it's really not.  :)

The ladder hinges about half-way so you can raise it out of the way for access to the rear storage bay.
I use Velcro strips to secure it close to the fixed part so I don't have to mess with it when getting at the hoses and electrical cord.
But if I need the ladder, it's usable.

Hint:
Drill 1/4" diameter holes in the bottoms of the plastic ladder hinge so the water drains.

I also secure the lower half to the fixed upper half and it is there if needed but not in the way of the storage door.  Drilling the hole is important.

Thanks, Tom, Marilyn, and all for the encouragement about the ladder.  I checked with Amanda and Kermit at the factory and they concur that it is easy to do -- so I don't have any hesitation now about adding the ladder back in.  That should insure that we never get tangled in trees
                                                                                                                                                                        #:)   or lose a vent cover -- you know, if I didn't have the ladder we surely would!  (chuckle!)  Thanks for all the help -- we are excited to continue to plan and wait -- but also anxious to bring her home and get a few miles on her before the Illinois winter decides to snow us in...

Thank you Bob and Bob,

    I forgot about drilling the holes in the bottom of the top half of the ladder on this PC. I did it on the first one but old age memory got me on this one. I just drilled the holes and watched water run of of both sides. I don't know how it gets in there but it was there.

nj heart:

My 2 pennies worth.  In my back compartment I keep things I rarely use.  I travel with  a bike holder on the back of the mh.  Even with the tilt option on the holder, I find it a pain to get in the back compartment.  In my 2350 I carried the electric cord in the side storage and kept tight with a cable cuff.  In my 2552 I have the cord in the forward compartment.  In my humble opinion that back compartment is about as handy  as t_ts on a bull.

Safe travels.

On the other hand, I travel with the ladder raised and use the rear compartment every day for electrical cords, adaptors and hoses (I'm too lazy to bring bikes).
Carry on, regardless..................
