on my E21, the propane tanks are pretty snug up against the box., and the jack is pretty snug up against the propane tanks.

outside to outside measurement, the frame rails are about 27" wide at the front of the box, and 38.5" wide at the back of the box.

I would call ETI and ask if a 19 box could work on a 21 A-frame as it may change locations for the propane tank holder or interfere with WDH mounting. Better safe than sorry.

I was aware of the different sizes between the boxes - fortunately for us we live only 45mins from the factory so I am able to run over and do any measurement or headscratching in person before making any rash decisions.

Storage Box

This is our second season owning the Escape. I think I finally have found order for the front storage box.

Using the 50A to 30A adapter, the 10 AWG 30A cordset is now protected by a 50A breaker in the site pedestal. You are now depending on your 30A internal breaker and hoping not to have an external cord issue. We have the 50A-30A dogbone just in case, but we try really hard not to use it.

We ask to move sites if the outlet looks bad or if the EMS indicates an error (usually an open ground). Otherwise, we run on solar and batteries until the RV park can resolve the issue.

I never carried one until two years ago after getting my 5.0TA, an low and behold I needed it this year at Circus Circus in Las Vegas. The 30A never had a ground and the 50A was good. Worked great for us. My brother in the next site had no issue with his 30A.

Any fault that is likely to happen between the pedestal & the 30 amp trailer breaker is a short. A short on a 30' piece of #10 wire is going to trip a 50 amp circuit breaker almost instantly. No worse than plugging a table lamp with #18 lamp cord into a 15 - 20 amp home circuit.

Another reason for carrying the 50 to 30 amp adapter is I've run into pedestals where the 30 amp receptacle provided low voltage, while the 50 amp was normal (probably due to the 50 amp wiring added later & being a larger wire size). It has made the difference between being able to run the AC or not...

what jon said.

and this last trip, our first stop was 4 nights at the Strawberry Music Festival, where we had to share a pedestal with an adjoining 'half' space they squeezed in... The entire RV park part of the fairgrounds was totally full, so no chance for moving. The other guy got there first and had the 30A plug taken, so I had to use my 15A adapter on the 20A outlet (didn't have the 50-30 w/ me). thankfully, it was a cool festival and we didn't need air condiditioning nor do we hardly ever use the microwave, so all was good.

Like Eggscapes' wall storage mod -just got this from Amazon. No command hooks for me. Cross bar is screwed into corner framing.

Rule #1 will be - nothing wet, dirty, or heavy.

Looks good. In mine I added a bottle jack and a couple 2x6x12's...very handy if the trailer manages somehow to jump off the ball.

I fibreglassed 3 dividers of Baltic birch plywood in my box hope to keep it organized. I try to keep heavy items between the frame rails.
