Nuts and Bolts

It's a good idea to check all the nuts and bolts on your Escape.I just walked by mine and put my hand on the spare tire.The mounting bracket was loose and ready to fall off.Also the bolts holding the water tank underneath were all loose.

I just tightened the bolts on my spare tire mount for the first time ever. They were seized, and I had to loosen them with WD40, but not it is back to rock solid. Not sure how long it was like that either.

Just tried to wiggle my spare. It won't move in any direction. Sani hose holder is also still solid.

It was a good prompt and I feel better now.
Still need to crawl under and check tanks.
