2010 17B Owner's Manual??

Does anyone have the owner's manual for a 2010 17B (or at least a Gen 1 17)? I also need a wiring manual or diagram (particularly the solar installation), though I understand that each trailer may have a unique wiring scheme.

If you do please PM me to work out how I can get a copy.

Thanks
Mike

I can't help with what you're specifically looking for. Be sure to check out the Files for documentation of all kinds. Escape Trailer Owners Community - Downloads

Thanks, Donna, great idea. There is a lot of information there, but none on point for my needs. It certainly seems to cover everything Dometic, though.

there are no trailer wiring diagrams of any sort, at least not from ETI.

Not sure if this will help or not but Escape has used Go Power or Samlex solar kits on all their trailers. The installation is pretty simple and conceptually will match the attached diagram closely if not exactly.

There are no formal wiring diagrams, but some here have done extensive modifications/upgrades and know the wiring well. If you have any specific questions I would ask and someone may have the answer or at least good guidance.

What is it that you want to know? I have my manual from 2009 and could photograph a page or two. Not a lot a detailed info in any event.

Mike,
I have a 2014 ETI Owner's Manual pdf. (It's 3 times the allowed upload size, or I'd attach it). It is generic for all ETI trailer models. There is, in the list that Donna referenced, a 2012 owner's manual at the bottom of the list. It is essentially the same as mine.
So, if that 2012 manual doesn't have the info you want, I doubt that there is a document of that first gen. era that does.


And, no, there are no wiring diagrams. The only ones I've ever seen were in ETI's factory, at the electrical wiring work stations. They were colored lines and felt penned notes on the plywood walls, that had nails at each turn in the wiring, so as to make up the custom looms for each custom trailer. Here's a build photo that shows it in the background.

There is also the online Owner's Manual. It says revised Nov 2017, but not too much has changed over the years so most of it still applies to a 2010.

Thanks for the information. I will download the manual from files, since it is probably nearly the same as the 2010. I just want one for my file so I can refer to it any time I have a question.
