Me again Jim - What differences are there between the regular Maxx Fan and the upgrade? Also, I noticed that you highlighted the aluminum rims. DH and were discussing whether we needed them or not and I seem to remember reading that they were more corrosion resistant. Is that correct?

I had the chrome wheels on my 19' and they look sharp, a little more effort to keep clean, but sharp. With the 15" wheels I'm hoping they will look even sharper. I'm also getting the E-Z lube axle, that way I can keep it lubed between brake adjustments.
The upgrade for the fan includes a remote and the smoke lens which I installed on my 19', it really lets in more light as well as stars at night. The remote just saves you from having to get out of bed at night to turn it on or off.

Very nice! What is the reason for the battery cut off switch? Also the remote with the surge protector? Great catch on the amber bulbs outside. I hate buying things twice! When we did the tour of the Casita factory and realized we'd have to change to LED's after delivery, we were disappointed. But then that helped open our eyes to the advantages of Escape.

I went with an amber lamp outside the door and switched back to white.
The amber just showed me where the trailer was, but didn't illuminate anything in the vicinity.

The battery cut off is mainly for storage, it disconnects all drain caused by the trailer from the battery, except it allows the solar to continue charging. The remote for the EMS means there is a read out display available.

I have some questions about what is standard and what is optional from your list. It also appears you seem to be the most familiar with what, for many of us is some photos and specifications not much in minor detail on the Escape 21. Jim, can we call you an expert?
  • Captains Lights - you say two standard, does that mean it comes with two and you have added four. I ask because I do not see them mentioned on their webpage under features.
  • "cabinet door opening window in bath" is this the access door under the permanent bed? Standard or an option?
  • "additional switch for interior ceiling lights" from what I can gather you will have a switch installed somewhere near the door that will turn on all ceiling lights, a second switch will do the three (two standard) outside lights, is there a third switch?
  • Where will the Go Power Solar Regulator be located?
  • A single Group 29 battery? I assume you are frequently on shore power or feel your solar will keep up. You have a lot of electric demand and perhaps electronics. That said, not all Group 29 batteries are created equal, do you know what it will be in brand and amp hours?
  • "2 LED lights under bed (1) by each hatch opening" are you adding a hatch? I thought there was one standard driver side front.

Captain lights- 2 are standard, over the bed- I'm adding 2 over dinette and one over night stand and one over the door entrance (kitchen o/h)
Additional switch for o/h lights, this is now an option, it was standard in the 19. You will have 2 switches by door, one for interior, one for exterior lights
The Go Power Display- I'm the first solar so he is working on that
The group 29 is what I had in my Escape 19= 128 a/h reserve located under curb side dinette-
2 extra led lights, by the exterior and interior hatch openings to illuminate under the bed area
the majority of the above list items are options unless noted as standard which I believe are listed on the website
any questions feel free to ask, not sure about expert but I did sleep at the Holiday Inn last night
