New appreciation for how Escapes are made!!!

Hi: All... Just got finished taking out the original battery from 2007. Going to replace it with a Trojan SCS200. I got a good deal from MagnaCharge Batteries because they supply London Transit just down the road... and all I had to do was walk in in uniform for a deep discount.
Taking apart the bracing for the dinette to get the old battery out you find 3 screw where 2 would do... and nice square corners and wiring routed along the braces with cable clamps screwed in. Gotta love 'em. Alf

I think it's cooler and safer on the Ps side it's further from the gas pumps in case the pilot flame is left on. I usually put the sunny side towards the Dr. side if possible in summer to keep cool but in the fall and spring it's the other way.

Just some thoughts after reading an article in USA today. This year, the RV industry expects to ship 309,800 units. Escape will ship around 140 units. I feel very fortunate to be buying one of those 140. While the majority of the 309,800 units will be purchased "off the shelf," we get to spend hours reviewing, discussing and creating our "one of a kind" Escape! I am constantly amazed and heartened by the integrity of Reace & Tammy and the employees of the company that they have built. As a corporate buyer for many years, I understand that it's not about the product, it's about the relationship - and Reace & Tammy "get it." My wife and I can't wait to join the Escape Family!

Thanks for the pictures Alf, reminds me to insulate my battery box, that set up may allow a lot of cold air into the trailer.

Can you insulate effectively and still allow ventilation for the batteries?

Enclose the box with reflectix and same for hose, should keep all cold air in the box, might be a pain though to get access if needed.
