also, I probably should have mentioned in my detail description of first time firing up the hot water... before you do ANY of the things I described, make sure the anode is installed in the hot water heater. they are often removed for long term storage as this drains the water heater.

I just got my Escape19 last weekend. The backup camera from ETI definately works going forward or backward.

The problem NOW days, is No one stays "out" of your braking space. Used to work, not now. People cut into a "space" 2' longer than their vehicle.

Under the title "make your own mistakes, not mine", make sure you depressurize your water system before removing the anode. I was removing the anode last fall and forgot to depressurize the water system by opening a faucet. While removing the anode, it shot out of the water heater like a torpedo (fortunately the WH was cool and I was standing aside) and embedded itself in a dirt bank 8 feet away.

2 cents

I have felt for a long time that there is a sign on the back of my trailer that says: "Please! Cut in front of me!"
