And moving closer to its final home.

The Escape 5.0 on it's way to The Netherlands is in the Panama Canal.

Have Fun!

Severinus and Yvonne

It is really great watching your trailer travel around the world. You must be very excited! I was a little worried when the freighter was near the hurricane in the Pacific near Baja...worried it would bang around in the container. Hopefully it will be perfect when the container is eventually opened. We're watching!

Hi Seef,
Does ETI has to make any electrical alterations to meet European standard? I know most of the European countries run on 110V except England uses 240V. Thanks

I believe that essentially all of Europe uses 240 (or 230) volt household power... at 50 hertz (compared to our 60 Hz).

An Escape headed almost anywhere outside of North America (and maybe South America - I don't know) needs some sort of conversion of the AC power system. I'm interested in hearing how Severinus and Yvonne handle this.

This has been most enjoyable. I can only imagine how much Severinus and Yvonne are enjoying this as well.

Hi Tonny,

I have to say no ETI does not do that. Understandable though, ETI has to comply to Canadian and USA standards since that is their targeted market.

I think you mixed up the voltages. Most of the European Countries use 220-240V 50 Hz, i'm not sure what England uses.

So we have to make the changes ourself. As things look right now, we need to change the axle and brakes, do some fiddling on the rear lights, get a transformator for the fridge, replace the main circuit breakers, replace the battery charger, that's it more or less. Oh yeah, we do need to change the kingpin coupling too. Since Canadian stuff has no European compliance. So we have to replace a perfectly fine kingpin with a new one which is exactly the same but wit a EU sticker on it....

Ah well, as long as you are having fun eh?

Have fun!

Severinus and Yvonne
