Re: Stinky Slinky Holding Tube on 2012 17B

OK, I'll have to try and find one of those. I was thinking of using a Japaneese All-Sizer (crescent wrench) but figured I would bugger up the threads if it got off center.

I hope the ratchetting wrench isn't too expensive since this will likely be a one-time-use thing.

Cresent Wrench, is a trade name, proper definition is Adjustable Spanner.

I attached the tube for our stinky slinky under the frame, not on top

If anyone would like to stop by and have their tube attachment modified, I will be happy to accomodate them.

Reace,

I just wanted to say that it's service like this (actively monitoring customers and both fixing the problems for the future and offering free retrofits) that impresses me. I haven't purchased an Escape yet (the plan is to have a new trailer for the 2014 season, so I've got a bit of time yet) but I very much like what I'm seeing here.

Use lots of lube stick or cutting fluid when tapping steel or you'll snap the tap in your drill hole!
