    Hey Jon I'm going solar and was wondering where you placed the DC to DC charger. I've got a 10 Amp Victron and a 5.0 TA. I suspect the AC/DC distribution panels would be similar. I'll have two 100 amp Battleborns with a Victron solar controller and the Progressive Dynamics for the AC/DC converter charger. Thank jn

    Jon, the manual thermostat on off switch is tighter than a drum. It's plastic , don't want to break. First upgrade digital ?

    Sure I get that, everything will be empty, just want to do a 4 hour drive home safely. Then fill trailer and truck for actual use.

    You are still going to need to do an actual measurement. Without a lift, the top of the inside of the trailer ball socket should be at 19", at least as of the last time Escape posted it.

    Again, there are so many variations in the truck that one can only guess what will be the right rise/drop. In my case I have the trailer lift and usually carry at least 400 pounds in the truck bed.

    Hi Jon, I was getting ready to torque ball to drawbar and wondered will it be a 4 " drop or 2" raise for the bar ?
