Any Leaks?

Hello, I am new to this forum as we have been dreaming about making the leap to an Escape for a few years now. Has anyone ever had issues with leaking? Looking into so many different travel trailers only to have me running for the hills with all the issues and shoddy quality from other companies which is confirming why I only want an Escape.

Any problems? Thanks for your help~

Nope. Have had my 17 for 10 years with no leaks. Finally took it out to Escape to have them check the caulking and fix my Maxxfan. No reported issues.

and if there were any leaks, there are drain/weep holes to allow water to escape from the Escape!

Bathroom window leaking this past winter, needed to recaulk the black tank vent, my bad. Even with a fiberglass shell, you need to stay on your toes when it comes to caulking, unlike me.

During a heavy rain yesterday I noticed a small leak around one of the bolts holding the backup camera in place. There was a bit of water in the storage compartment above the table. Looks like I will need to add some sealant.

After a problem-free year, when breaking camp this past Spring, my wife noticed a very minor leak under the galley sink where the hose nut on a water supply line to the faucet had worked its way lose (from road vibration?). I simply re-tightened the hose nut by hand about a quarter turn, problem solved.
