Gerda - same here for Mary and I. My friends are amazed that me (Mr ConsumerReport,etc) would buy something sight unseen. I am hoping to be similarly wowed when we get to BC on the 21st!!!!

Gerda
I know you make the statement that you bought the Escape Trailer sight unseen, rightly so. But you have also spent hours, maybe days researching travel trailers, towing and Escapes. You were or are an extremely informed consumer on Escape trailers. Personally and I think I can speak for Bob and yourself that knowledge came from this forum and the questions, hints, problems and features that have been discussed.

Anyone could probably become as informed if they took the time to read the forum from start to finish. It is the text book on Escape. What I discovered in SSM and am still finding is I have the "book learning", but not the practical experience of an Escape trailer. I know there is a switch/valve to by pass the hot water heater but as of yet I cannot tell you where it is or how it works. That is book learning, nice but without the practical not worth alot.

I think that is covered in the video ( at the end under winterizing ). You'll find it under Documents and Other Useful Stuff. It's a half hour tour of the Escape 17 B, but most applies to other models as well. Even though I shot the video, I find myself referring to it to refresh my memory.
