Looks like the grey water tank vent.

I found out the hard way when my grey water tank filled on my 2005 17B and the water started coming out of there!! I believe now all the tanks are vented to the roof.

I don't have anything like that on my 17B. I believe mine is vented through the roof.

So now I suppose it would just back up into the shower or sink before it overflowed to the roof.

We have no reference of what an Escape TT is but wheel wells cannot be sprayed on a complete vehicle. If this is some sort of removable fender or piece that can be maneuvered it could be sprayed for sure. With some more information we may be able to help.

Thanks,

One of the Line-X shops in town said it would be no problem to spray the wheel wells, but we would have to remove the wheels to do it. They had done it a bunch of times before, and actually had pricing to do it, though that was when I first got my trailer, and I forget what it was. Something like $80 per side, I think. I was looking into spraying on the front too.

Probably just depends on the individual dealers. I would think, like yours Jim, many of them would be willing to do it.

After one trip with my DIY wheel well liner, it seems to be holding up quite well. I like the look better than the original white as dirt, grime, tar,etc aren't noticeable on it.
