I checked the other day they have the grey ones but not black. I found someone in the US with both in stock who will ship to Canada. Thanks for the suggestion.

hughharden,

The probes I found at that price turned up on a Google search. The site was simply RV Probes and they were in Denver but the site said no international shipments. I will see if I can turn it up again.

Yes that is the site I started out with. They told me they couldn't ship to Canada (email conversation) and referred me to a Canadian supplier. That supplier only had the grey water probes. Anyway I finally found a US supplier who can send to Canada. If that craps out I will get them sent to a friend in Houston I'm going there in November anyway. Good thing I don't need to get them to ETI until March that might be how long it takes to get them!! So much for free trade.

The fresh water tank works like the grey tank.

This technique is normal for most RVs, although some (such as my motorhome) have opaque grey waste tanks so that part doesn't work. The black tank method only works if the toilet is directly connected to the tank (sometimes in a fifth-wheel the bathroom is far above the black tank and the pipe isn't straight) - this is not a problem in any Escape.

tanks

So I guess out of luck for the grey and fresh tanks of you go for the spray foam insulation?

Canadians can get them there as long as all they need are grey water probes. They are out of stock of black water probes until April I think. Not much help to me since I need to get them to ETI by march 1.

Where do you see that Hugh? It has always said fresh stock has arrived, and it let me order them, with no suggestion of back order.

That's great news for anyone in Canada that needs them, when I tried on September 14 I got the message about the out of stock black tank probes.
