Take it to Aamco.....Their commercial claim to diagnose on customer sound effects.......
Just kidding, hope this turns out well and relatively inexpensive

Will post in another thread as I was going to do a 'trip report' anyway. Just before we left on this trip, our local mechanic replaced the boots on the wheel joints which were cracked so it will be interesting to see what's going on. (I'll have to remember the sound effects ... HA!!!)

Could be a wheel bearing, brakes or CV joint if you have 4 wheel drive. Or it could be what we experienced when I thought we were in a heap 'o trouble in the middle of nowhere when we pulled into an empty campground 5 miles off a paved road with no cell reception. Turned out to be something stuck between a front brake rotor and the back plate which came out on its own.

Best of luck getting it fixed

Also something like this happened to us . Sounded very bad . Turned out it was a rock stuck between brake rotor and backing plate . Found it when Pulled the wheel . Hopefully it is something simple like that for you . Pat

Greetings All,
We have just returned home from a 17 day/3200 mile trip that visited Crater Lake & Glacier National Parks among other stops.

Along the way we spotted 3 Escapes but have not had reliable internet access along much of our route.

Sighting #1, Philipsburg, MT
As we were passing through we spotted a Escape 19 parked in a driveway.

Sighting #2, July 7th, as we were passing through Wells, NV on I-80 we saw a 5.0 East bound.

Sighting #3, also on the 7th as we pulled into the RV lot for Circus Circus a fellow Escape 21 (TomW). We were able to exchange notes but not able to meet in person

Just a quick update. Turned out it was a broken axle. Met the garage owner at 8:00am and he had the truck up on the rack and diagnosed by 8:15am. Part ordered, delivered and installed by 12:30pm ... on the road by 1:30pm. (All at a very reasonable price). If you're ever in need of a repair in Winnemucca, Nevada, Manzo's Garage is the place to go!!!

Jan, it is good to hear you are on the move again, and got good service. Nothing makes one happier than getting good service to take the pain out of a problem.

I'll put that shop in my book. I was in Winnemucca in May. I always think about good shops when I'm way out west. As I reported once before there's a good shop
in Loa, Utah that bailed me out once too. There's lots of good people out there.

Maybe we need a separate thread with our good (and bad) experiences just to use as a reference.

That most likely would have been us--we were headed for the Sawtooths. Noticed an Escape headed east, but only got a quick glimpse and were not able to identify the model. We had a great week and enjoyed 4 nights at Alturas Inlet CG and 2 more at Alturas N. Shore CG. Did several very pleasant hikes. Hope your trip is going well!

Thanks Dave.

In a fit of boredom I removed the front decals from my 21. Now contemplating getting them put back on. Or maybe a lightning motif.

Circled through to Eastern Nevada and enjoyed the views. Happy to be out of the dust though. Currently in Sparks for a week amongst the stickies and cla$$ A's.
