Re: Escape Training/Orientation Video

Well made video.
Much better then reading the dry print material.
Something similar would be a good marketing tool too, as it shows much more then what photos do.

I got a good chuckle outta Tammy's measure of 'a small glug' of black tank chemical.

Re: Escape Training/Orientation Video

Hi all,
I am hoping that Reace will make a video of putting on and hooking up the equalizer hitch as well as un-hooking it and perhaps info on the initial setting up as well. He taught me the "drag and tilt" method of getting it to and putting it in the receiver. That should save a lot of wear and tear on my "not as good as it used to be" back.

Re: Escape Training/Orientation Video


Reace installed the equalizer hitch on the trailer frame and adjusted it, and then showed me how to connect to the vehicle. It's pretty simple really. You just drop the hitch on the ball and crank it up until you lift the rear suspension enough to make installing the bars easy. Then you crank it back down. You do the same thing to remove the equalizer bars and unhook. We should have shot that part for the video, but if you pay attention while he shows you, you'll not forget how.

This is the How To video starring Tammy. It explains a lot of what you need to know about your Escape trailer. It is about 18 mos. old so some things may have changed.

setup/take down checklist?

Does anyone use a checklist for setup and take down procedures on their Escape 5.0?
