The battery is in the front storage box if you get that option or Reace will put it inside if you ask. The black tank is under the street side dinette seat.

We just picked up our Escape 19 in April and I specifically asked Reace to mount the batteries inside the front dinette (similar to Jim's). For me, this was to allow more space in the exterior front storage locker for my canoe paddles, life jackets, and other paddling gear (as well as chocks, blocks of wood and other trailer stuff). We are finding that the Escape has more storage space than we really need, even with the batteries inside the front dinette compartment.

We are finding that, even without the front storage box, though paddles and PFD's do have to go in the Pilot.

I trust when I request dual 6v batteries placed on tongue behind propane tank of my 19 it will not leave me up the creek without a paddle. Wondering why I have not found a picture of this.

Thinking I can make a decent storage box myself, for a few shemollians short of seven hundred.

The box is expensive but well worth it, especially if you are going to put batteries up front.

The box is expensive but well worth it, especially if you are going to put the batteries inside the front dinette to make more room for other gear in the box.

I don't think we could function without the box on our 15B. With so little space inside it is nice to have a place to put the "wet" stuff like hoses, chocks, leveling pads, disinfectant for the "stinky slinky" and other things that we wouldn't want to bring inside. Obviously, 17 and 19 foot owners have more room but we agree with Dave W that it is well worth it. We have the dual 6 volts and there is still plenty of room in the box. The box is one of the things that drew us to the Escape.
