Not to get to far off topic But:
Your local Auto Stereo shop will have special battery terminals that will replace your existing terminal as well as give you a second point to tie in your charge line.

I think the Escape already has those Bob. It's not here, and I'm really not in a hurry!

Thanks,

Frank

No, it's the terminal to attach the charging line to the TV's battery, then wire to the circuit breaker and, finally, wire to the 7 pin connector.

Greetings,
I've mentioned elsewhere that our chevy awd 1/2 ton van (~6500lbs to ~6900lbs at scales depending on our needs) gets ~17mpg (~13 to 15 mpg city) on highway, and ~15mpg towing our parkliner (2400lbs at scales fully loaded).

We are pleased with that milage in it is our ~34ft articulated two room motorhome not bad if one considers we have like two of everything going down the road.

Cheers,
Thom

Our 2012 Honda Pilot gets 20-22 mpg normally. Towing our PL we get around 14 mpg.

Now driving down and back to ParkLiner last weekend, all highway miles I averaged around 16.5mpg driving 60-65'ish lol.

Much nicer then the stop and go driving I do for most of my trips.

How was the factory? I can't wait to get my ParkLiner. Are they trying to make one a week do you know?

Its a really pretty part of NC isn't it?

Im not sure what their production schedule is, but one was being finished up, one was looking like it was nearly ready to get put onto a trailer and they were working in the molds for the next one. Aaron said they have been working alot of hours on the battery box upgrades. They worked on mine from 7am till 4pm so lots was done and losing 2 guys for a days work per trailer will slow production down a bit...worth the wait.
