Has anyone encountered such a problem.
Any comments or proposed solutions for repairing the chassis!

Check with Escape trailer Industries about a recall and warranty issue. They have had a few problems with 3" frames on 19's and offer a solution.

Fractured chassis on 2010 Escape trailer.

Thank-you. This has been done. However I was curious to see if many more owners have had a similar problem. And consequently how they solved the issue on their trailer. A recent recall from ETI is what moved me to inspect the chassis and discover that it was completely fractured on the front driver side just behind the jack support. In fact there is a 5mm dislocation between the two pieces.
I am grateful for their warning. I would never have suspected such a defect. This could have led to serious consequences on the road. I was heading to Florida this winter with the trailer. Ouch!!!

Sorry to hear that you are having issues. However, many of us on this forum would be interested in seeing any pictures that you may care to post that show the fracture that you have found. Would you be able to post something?

RWD - was this fracture at a different place than where the recall is addressing? Or at that weld?

Also, I was wondering if it was at the spot where the inner, if it has one, backing plate ends?

Yes. The fractured on the chassis occurred posterior to the weld. Just behind the steel reinforcement plate that serves as an anchor to the stabilizer jack.
I am having difficulty inserting pictures. Can someone offer assistance.

How to add photos to a post

Click reply and scroll down to bottom of text box.
  • Click "go advanced" add text to message window and then scroll down.
  • Click "Manage attachments" A separate window will pop up.
  • Click "browse" Then select the file to be uploaded. Be sure that the photo is appropriately sized. 1000 x 1000 pixels (or smaller) and no more than 50K. Forums software will automatically reduce the size, but smaller size photos will upload much faster. You may select several photos to upload at the same time by repeating the last step.
  • Click "Upload" After pics have loaded close the pop-up window
  • Wait for the message "Uploading" to go away.
  • Click "submit reply" to mount the text of your message - photos will automatically appear at the bottom of your post.

I'm only guessing, but I think most people have problems because they don't wait for the pix to be uploaded before hitting submit. It can take a while.

When I select "insert image" I am asked to insert the "URL of the image". I am using a Mac computer that describes the image as follows: IMG_1370.jpg
This is not working. Help!
