Has anyone installed these on their 5th Wheel and if so, what is the proper size for the Escape. I would expect 7/16 is the correct size, but I'm not going to make more than one assumption in a single post! I'm curious because that would be one of the first mods I would make to a 5er.
Hi: C&G in FL... Since the landing gear ETI uses are electric and independent, there is no rapid extension, or retraction. There is no pulling pins or reinserting them.
We have owned an Escape 5.0 since 2008 and now a 5.0TA and always enjoyed the powered landing gear. My wife operates the landing gear while I operate the truck. It's as easy as pushing 2 buttons. Alf
