Tammy said they've been using it since Nov 2015. So, that probably was the one I tried, but I don't remember seeing a light on it. Although it was awfully sunny out when I tried it.

Who knows at this point.

Did she mention the model name of the new connector they are using? I am looking for something that I can retrofit into mine. The Furrion one suggested previously in this thread looks good but it is difficult to source in Canada.

No, she didn't and I didn't ask. But you probably could!

Most of the parts used by ETI are purchased in the US, mainly in Elkhart, In where Dave, the delivery person stops on way home and picks up parts for ETI. So the source is most likely a US source.

I used this one for our Casita. Scary part was getting up the nerve to cut the hole. Worth the price of buying a new hole saw.

Here are some new cord sets

30 Amp Power Cord Plus Cordset - 25 ft yellow in sleeve pack | Marinco

This one looks like a quick connect that I have not seen before.

I am concerned about using the Marinco inlet because the housing is round. I think I may need to use a square housing to make sure that the existing rivet holes are covered. Has anyone else used the Marinco inlet on an Escape retrofit?

I did the retrofit. I just had Escape send me the kit. It was an easy conversion.

Most of the retrofit kits come with an adapter plate so you can use it in either a round or squared off hole. In the case of our Furrion kit, the hole is round and the Furrion outlet housing is a rounded square, so no adapter plate will be required.
