Yes, there are 2- 6v batteries located in the box.

And to CPAHarley, I have seen that Carlin video, he is a funny guy.

This is the response from Kim at Escape (in blue) to my question regarding the Escape 21.

What is under the permanent bed? Hot water tank at the foot and black tank at the head

As I recall from Bandon -
It extends out partially from under the bathroom into the underbed space - perhaps its bigger that the toilet pedestal was designed for?

My old 2005 17B's black tank was only under the toilet but it was only 8 gallons in capacity. As the tanks got larger going from 8 to 14 then to 19 they had to go somewhere so the 17 and 19's extend under the front dinette and the 5.0's into the front hatch compartment ......... I'm guessing the 21's extends under the bed due to the location of the bathroom.

In the 19' model it extended from the bath about 18"-24" under the dinette seat, maybe 18" wide, so that amount is probably what we are talking about, still plenty of room, at least close to under the 19 area.

On the 21' think about this... the bathroom is on the passenger side, but the discharge is on the drivers side.. which is "typically" where the "gate" is located. Thank goodness you're not laying a loooong hose from one side of the trailer to the other, for the discharge. Who wants to crawl under the trailer to hookup a black water tank.. not me. YMMV I'm thinking Reace/Tammy thought this one through to the end!

I wish my trailer could have a Escape storage box. Our trailer's front tank/battery cover is tight and has to be removed any time I have to check battery water. The box is a good place to storage all your trailer stuff.

Extending the above-floor black tank beyond the space under the toilet into adjacent cabinetry is normal. My 1979 Boler B1700 has a tank extending under the dinette seat, and other Bolers and Bigfoot trailers of the era had similar configurations.

Is there any reason a front storage box can't be added later if one is needed? Is there room on the tongue in the 19 for a storage box behind the tanks. What is the standard configuration for the propane tanks, side to side or front to back and is there a choice in the matter?
