The only part that is protected in the cover is the extra length, so the net benefit looks like zero to me. I guess a label fixes the original problem, and if higher-capacity wiring is ever needed the new jumper can be made more direct.

A few of us have built our own mules.

It's always interesting to see what solutions others come up with.

Why don't you post your mule photos under a new thread and hopefully others might also post their homemade mules and we can share what works for us without it being mixed in with a thread on wiring.

I agree - it would be nice to see what people have created. There is also the european approach of a "caravan mover" system (such as the AL-KO Mammut), which uses two separate motors, one driving each trailer wheel (or one wheel on each side in the case of a tandem; a FiberglassRV member has built his own for his Trillium (he calls it Impulse Drive), and it would be equally applicable to an Escape.
