Reace and Tammy had to head home early due to some illnesses among the staff at Escape causing manpower issues. So sorry to see them go but so nice to have them here and spend time camping with such great people. Happy trails and have fun at Osoyoos!

My wife and I had a great time meeting folks and checking out some Escapes today at the Bluebonnet rally. We gained some invaluable insight, and left with confidence that we made the right purchase. Looking forward to picking up our trailer in June!

Something the rest of us were already confident of. Lots of memories to be made soon.

I bought my trailer without ever seeing inside an Escape, and was quite confident in my decision, based on talking with Reace, and what others had to say.

Daubsy: if within your first year of ownership, you decide you don't like your Escape, I bet that you'll be able to sell it for at least what you paid for it. You just made one of the best purchases of your life.

So nice to meet you and your wife and spend some time chatting. Have fun on your trip to Chilliwack!

Hmm. What's wrong with this design? Hint: think gravity.

I guess it depend if there is some kind of back flow prevention at the tap such as a Watts 8A vacuum breaker.

Cheers

Yeah, but I was thinking of the gallon or so of crud that can't drain because it has to go uphill.

Ok, I just got schooled. Apparently the fitting swivels down for when you connect the hose. My bad. Good job Casita.

I always thought the water filter went at the source in order to keep your hose clean, but Alf says that in the Florida sun, mold will grow and it is best at the trailer end of the hose? Anyone else have ideas?
