What's the "starter kit"?

Okay, did a search for it and a bazillion hits came up. Figured it was quicker to ask in a separate thread. I've not found an explanation for it in all the threads I've been reading.

What exactly comes in the Starter Kit that's listed as an option for $160?

Thanks

Thanks! I've already got half of those from my motor home rental.

Yay, one less option to worry about!

The "starter kit" also includes a sewer hose.

Nope. The hose is standard - without the starter kit.

I think that a lot of Escape owners have replaced the standard hose with a Rhino hose. Correct me if I'm wrong. Loren

Not wrong in my case. One of the first things we picked up and we like it.

Also just noticed - that is one BIG graphic of the equipment list from ETI's website. It looked so small on my phone earlier.

The tank fill was what sold us on the starter kit. If you're going to travel at all after picking up the trailer, you might consider asking ETI to foil up the tanks before pickup
