For those 2ndG Escape 19 with the awning windows...

I found a longer door stop to extend the 6" opener to 10" space, should allow full opening of the dinette window behind the door. Mine arrived today...

Fantastic. Every time I latch our door I think I need to figure out how to extend the bar. I didn't even think to look to see if they made a longer one. Have you installed it yet? Any issues with the fit?

It appears that the receiver piece on the door is identical so just the lock tab on the trailer needs replacing. It is reveted on, need to decide if rivet or screws into some wood blocking. Easy access under dinette seat. Will post pictures.

Today I installed the longer door stop. I first drilled out the original rivets with 2 drills, a smaller one that releases the stem and then 9/64 which snaps off the outer rivet head. I now took a penknife and scored the perimeter to break any sealant and the old one popped off.

I decided to utilize the old rivet base as they were still secure, so I had to find the proper size bolt that would fit the hole. I have an assortment in the basement and after several trips found the correct length and diameter. I gently threaded the bolt onto the rivet and them removed. I placed some sealant around the holes, mounted the new plate, more sealant on the threads and secured the new holder. I did not have to remove the door portion as it is the same for both models.

This may work with the 21 and 17 models if the door is over the window area.

Had a chance to try the new door holder while camping last night locally, it works like a charm and the dinette window clears the door while fully open, I'm a happy camper. Next up, tapping into the heat to heat the bathroom.....tbc

Escape needs to change to a longer holder standard. Awning windows...

Well at least it is an easy and non expensive fix with Escape, I lost $thousands on 2x Lance Trailers that had slide and roof issues, both brand new, both sold within 6 months.
