I decided to leave the tank as it is. I will likely insulate real good around it, and maybe add a heat tape. The other option is to do like Dirk did and add a smaller tank inside. I really could not bring myself to lose the space in the storage area due to the need of keeping a low height tank in there.

Re: Our New Escape

Hi Walt,
Welcome to the forum! I'm sure you'll be so happy that you elected to get an Escape. If your eyes won't get worn out, check the things others have done in the way of additions and modifications. Reace and Tammy are very accommodating and will let you know what can be done and if an idea that you have is feasible or desirable.

I think you will find that the 19" is to the receiver the top of the ball height is a couple of inches more.

Re: Our New Escape

Actually, I measured the hitch height on the 19 when I was there and it was 19" to the top of the ball. Reace thought is was level then. 1" either way won't make much of a difference. If you load your vehicle &/or add weight to the hitch, it will bring down a fair bit too.
