2009 Ford Ranger - Almost ready

Ok, I am almost ready. Got the Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar for the coach, base plate installed on the 2009 Ford Ranger and Patriot brake system installed. Finally ready to tow.

The Ranger is a 4x2 manual shift truck. Just wondering before I take out on the maiden voyage if there is anything else I need to think about before hooking up?

This has been a helpful site with all the great forums, so thought I would ask all the members on here to be safe and not miss something.

Thanks in advance for the words of advise.

Do you need a battery disconnect? Need the ignition key turned on to unlock steering wheel?

Good question on the battery disconnect. There is nothing in the Ranger owners manual that mentions a disconnect.

There is a 12v lead in the 7way plug from the coach. I assume this is used to help keep the battery charged.
