Actually on the 2017 21' the handles both pull straight out. Away from the frame.
So here is the updated info:
I need to make (or have someone make) a custom made handle extension for the grey tank open/close handle.
I'll explain why .....
I looked carefully at the 2017 21' that is now on display at ETI
See attached pics.
When we are parked at home, the drivers side of it needs to be about 8" from a tall, long wall.
(There is enough space on the passenger side)
Occasionally we need to empty the black then grey tank, without moving the trailer.
As per Greg A's good suggestion - I will attach the sewage hose and feed it forward, before pushing the Escape into its storage place, 8" from the wall on the drivers side.
To drain the black then grey tank I will use a long pole with a hook on the end.
So see attached photos -
I will have to do this from the front of the trailer... As the wheel blocks access from the rear of the trailer.
So I am after a secure handle extension that I can attach and forget about.
It should stick out further than the black handle... To make it easier to snag with my hook-on-a-long-pole apparatus, while I am standing at the front driver corner of the Escape.
Any ideas as to a sturdy and simple (handle) solution?
