Sunrisetrucker, good idea you had asking ETI about putting up the wall. That's what I did after installing the surge protector. Everything that needs protecting, is protected. The cord is in the box in this picture. I still don't like hearing about bug bridges though.

Four pages of posts about a cord? Really...

This thread reminds me about whether or not you should have a "flushy."

All I can say, is I never had a problem with "hang up" in my Scamp for twelve years, nothing to stow some place else, OR forget because THAT tote was left at home.

I got the standard wiring, so far I'm happy. YMMV

Easy fix: smear a dollop of Vaseline on the cord about a foot out from the trailer. It'll stop the bug bridge. When you're breaking camp, just wipe it off with a paper towel. My Mom and Dad did that for years -- no bugs.

Donna, thanks for adding to our 4 pages of posts!
I should add that we only had one cord tangle during our 4 years with a Casita and it's standard cord. Maybe the wall, seen in a previous post, will give zero tangles in our Escape?
Thanks for the Easy Fix rbryan4!
Tom

Adjust your posts per page, and you will only be part way into the first page.

When I was working through my build sheet... I had to make financial decisions. What NEEDED to be done during the build? Wiring under the vinyl, etc. The removable power cord is something I could do AFTER the fact. I made my decision during the build, now it's YOUR turn.

You can get a rubber plug . It goes around the cord and seals up the hole pretty good . I think Amazon has them or RV stores . It has a slit you open up then slide on .
