They are in the front storage box. I don't believe that Escape will put them on the rear bumper in a 19. Maybe a concern with tongue weight...

Escape will no longer place the batteries under the front dinette bench due to weight distribution concerns. Thus, it seems highly unlikely that they would agree to place the battery weight even further back on the rear bumper. I think that batteries on the front of the 19' either with or without the box, is your only option.

And considering the location of the converter and the rest of the wiring that seems pretty logical.

Ours are at the back on passenger side because we have a U dinette.

No, the general location is not a buyer's choice. The proportions of the Escape models vary, and so the appropriate battery location varies.
  • The 17' is quite long in front of the axle, so for balance the battery (or batteries if twin) are at the rear - outside, between the rear bumper and the body shell. Dual batteries are mounted in separate boxes.
  • The 19' accommodates the mass better up front, so the battery (or batteries if twin) are in front - outside, on the tongue (in the box if so equipped).
  • The 21' (and I believe 5.0TA) would be too front-heavy with the batteries up front, don't need it as far back as the bumper, and have space under the dinette... so that's the battery location. A single battery box is used, but the optional larger single battery (Group 29 size) or optional dual 6-volt batteries come with a larger box.
All batteries are in boxes, of various kinds depending on location. Outside boxes have vents; inside boxes are vented through hoses to outside.
