Itís been great learning from all of you Escape owners on the forum so far, and love having this resource available for the future.
I was hoping to get a couple questions answered to help me get started from anyone that cares to weigh in.
- Does Escape supply a print (hard copy) of the manual? Iím aware of the electronic version, but I always like print too.
- on the two burner stove top, what is the maximum pan diameter you can use on that stove so as to not cause problems?
- I was planning to stay a couple nights in the Sumas/Bellingham/Birch Bay Area after taking delivery just so I can be close in case there is some problem with anything that Escape needs to remedy. Anyone have any preferred campgrounds they recommend in those areas?
- on Solaró- I have a Renogy solar suitcase (with its attached charge controller) from before that I thought I would just plug into the battery at times to supplement the installed solar panel with its own controller and inverter from Escape. I did not order the zamp plug in. I thought I had read from previous posts this was doable, but just double checking.
Thanks in advance!

Welcome aboard and congratulations on your purchase. Not only does escape supply a printed manual, but they include the manuals for all of our appliances and accessories as well. We got a big accordion file to organize all of those.
Depending on how close you want to stick to Sumas, Washington Park in Anacortes is nice (no hookups, dump station only). I was going to do the same thing as you did when I picked up our 21C and was planning to stay at the Cedars in Ferndale (standard looking private RV campground, but well reviewed). I ended up just rolling the dice and heading straight home to Tacoma, so I can't speak from experience.
That strategy worked out fine for me and the only (minor) problems I have had surfaced after a few trips.
