I agree a buyer should be doing their own homework as used ones start to come up for sale. There is also the Door Hinge issue that Mark and Brian have pointed out. Link

I was talking about one mounted by the factory, it only has to be above the batteries by a few inches.

Also the general rule is to remove the negative connection first.

I agree with removing the negative first. That being said, you are preaching to the choir. My concern is aimed more towards those who may be a tad more "electrically challenged" out there.

I enjoy seeing light at the end of a tunnel, especially when that light appears to be getting bigger rather than smaller. I received email today from Chandler in response to an email I sent him last night in which he stated, "Park Liner will pay for the repairs to the wheel wells on your trailer." There was some other conversation not germane to this particular thread but I am encouraged.

The Light at the End of the Tunnel?

At Disneyland, from the opening day on, there has been (what was called a "B" ticket) ride called "Mr. Toads Wild Ride" At the very end, the rider is taken down a long dark tunnel and a small light appears at the end of the tunnel (Sound Familiar) but as you keep going down the tunnel the light gets bigger and bigger and eventually becomes a Locomotive that passes directly over you. So much for "The Light at the End of the Tunnel".

Scamp has been putting there batteries the same way on the front in a box for years. Between the trailer and the propane tank. Lots of photos on the Scamp website of the set up. Most Bolers are also on the front. Most of the Trilliums I have seen are also on the front. I have seen some of the 15' & 17' Escapes with the battery on the front same as Scamp does but also have seen some mounted on the rear bumper - seems to be when two batteries are being run.... may be wrong on that ;-)

Nice setup Glenn, that might be the ticket for many looking at moving their batteries outside. Would also make wiring a bit more straight forward since the battery bay is already rear-streetside berth area.

Thx,
Thom

Rear battery set up on the Escape 17' requires a frame modification, that space is not normally there.

In regard to the extended frame on the Escapes, it might be more accurate to call it a factory option rather than a modification.

Would moving the battery back 3 feet further behind the axle increase sway?
