Re: Escape 19' progress II

Sandra, when not hooked up to AC, only the 12V DC outlet(s) would work. You can use an inverter to convert the 12V DC to 120V AC. This can be one that is installed as part of the trailer and its charging system though not too common (in my limited experience), or one that can be a portable one that either plugs into a DV outlet, or better yet one connects right to the battery. The ones that us a DC plug (cigarette lighter style) are usually limited to 300W. This is only enough to run smaller electronic things. If you wire a larger one into the battery, you will be able to use somewhat larger electric items, though nothing too big like a microwave or hair dryers. Most AC devices used through an inverter draw lots from the trailer batteries, and can draw them down quite quickly.

I hope this helps, let me know if you need any further clarification.

Re: Escape 19' progress II

That's very clear, Jim.

Sandra, we have a 12 volt outlet in our Casita and use it quite a bit when camping in California's state parks (I've never been to one with hook-ups). We have a small AC/DC television with DVD and a great 12 volt portable fan that I plug into it. I also have a small inverter that plugs into the 12 volt outlet and provides an AC outlet to charge my cell phone, ipod or laptop.


Tammy, are you saying the crew was napping under the Escape??

Did you see the funny comment on the photo over at FGRV? The guy figured it was actually an 18 foot trailer.

Doug, I'll be there this weekend, so if you want to save the trip, I'll make the selections for you.

Re: Escape 19' progress II

Our plan as it stands is to go in first thing Saturday, but I may change that to Friday. We are heading in to Vancouver for Saturday night, and are now thinking we might head in Friday night instead. What time were you showing up on Saturday Doug?
