On the side higher than the bumper. I hardly think it would work as a drain hole and if it did I'd be a foot of water inside before reaching it😱

From the Marine Surveyor I hired to evaluate the "print-through blem"

Hi Ross, That looks like damage to me I personally have never heard of a mold hole. This looks like some impact damage, there are fractures clearly visible. This is damage not repaired properly and some one hoping that you are not aware enough to notice it. Regards, Richard
From Richard Avant; Port San Luis Marine Survey

Got to ask, if someone was hoping you wouldn't notice it, why would they 'flag' it with yellow tape?

Ok; so what would you do Glenn? Go back to the cooler? My advice to everyone is to hire an inspector. From my prior life in the RE biz I should have known better. They 90% of the time find stuff that at least pays for their inspection. The print-through was enough of a matter to not accept the trailer based on many posts regarding boats- which is practically the same issue. It denotes poor workmanship.

Edit: How many of you have gotten on a ladder to look at the roof at "Orientation"?

Could you please stop using such confronting language? The point is he has a defect on his trailer and how he should proceed to get it resolved. Possibly you could say something like " ETI provides excellent customer service, don't worry it will be resolved. Thank you for alerting us to this potential problem".?

Smooth, positive and reassuring.

I'm not saying it doesn't exist. I'm taking issue with the assertion by your surveyor that someone was trying to hide something.
And, if I hired a surveyor to find a problem, I would expect him to find it and place blame where I wanted him to place blame.

Well, as they say- "its hard to find good help". This is the crux of the problem that seems so obvious; Escape is in a growth mode, is a mom & pop biz and are likely in over their head to some extent.

See posts 61/64 for pictures regarding this.

Again- does anyone else have this on their roof?

Rousse that looks from your pics like damage . like something dropped on roof? I would definitely have Escape see that . Pat

Steve, you might have a look at the solder connections on your tank sender. I suspect mine may have been soldered with acid core (plumber's solder) and not electrical, rosin core solder. The photo here is my fresh water tank sender, and that tank is actually located inside the trailer, well out of the elements. Corrosion like this (or cold solder joints) can lead to funky, phantom readings.

Regards,

Matt
