It is hard to believe that ETI is still using the mechanical heating thermostat. Might I suggest something digital like this. Works great.

I agree. Many of us switched to that or a White Rogers because the mechanical one was pretty poor.

training for beginner RVs

cpaharley posted this link which looks like a good resources for total newbies to the travel trailer world. Does anyone else know of other good sources for folks who are just diving in to all of this? We pick up our trailer end of August, and I'd like to at least understand most of the basics! Thanks so much. I've been learning a lot studying thread after thread after thread... but am hoping there are other resources out there as well.

Escapees have a beginner forum (no membership required)


Beginning RVing - Escapees Discussion Forum












Honestly, youtube is a great resource (once you find an intelligent vid) if you know what search terms you are looking for (ie lighting rv oven or backing up trailer).

I started this thread back in 2014 called 'towing tips for beginners or how to avoid towing horror stories. People shared towing mistakes. It was a great learning experience for me back then when I was a newbie, now I never do anything stupid

Hi Linda, All these resources are great but not that same as hands on. We live an hour away from you in Bremerton and would be happy to supplement your video / forum education with in person walk through of our '19. There are also others in PT with Escapes as well. The ETI front office can connect you.
