Introduction

Dear Customer:
Congratulations on the purchase of your new Escape® Electric Truckmount. As technology continues to develop you can work confidently knowing that both Mytee and its employees are equally dedicated to developing with the industry and its advances.
Like any other piece of machinery or technology, the ETM also requires the proper maintenance and care to keep the product working over extended use. Neglecting your machine, abusing it, or not operating it properly can void its warranty and prevent the machine from performing to the quality and standard you’d expect out of the Mytee line.
If you have any warranty concerns or questions, please review this manual thoroughly or do not hesitate to contact your distributor. If there are questions regarding maintenance, replacement, or ordering parts please contact an authorized Mytee Service Center. To see an updated list please visit our website at http://www.mytee.com/support/service-centers.
Before using your Mytee product, please read this manual thoroughly.
Sincerely,
Mytee Customer Care Dept.

Important Safety Information

Please read and understand this manual completely before operating this machine.
Grounding Instructions
This machine must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical shock. This machine is equipped with a cord
having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances. Do not remove the ground pin; if missing, replace the plug before use.
Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 3
Improper installation of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Be sure to check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. If the plug will not fit in the outlet do not modify the plug or the machine’s cord, instead have a proper outlet installed by a qualified technician.
This machine is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and with a grounding plug similar to the one in Figure 1 below. If a proper outlet is not available, follow the illustrations in Figures 2 & 3 to install a temporary-grounding plug. This temporary workaround should be used only until a proper outlet (Figure 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician.
When and if this type of adapter is employed, screw the adapter’s extended tab into place with a metal screw. However, grounding adapters are not approved for use in Canada.
Again, be sure to check the grounding pin for damages and replace it if necessary.
The Green, or Green-Yellow, wire in the cord is the grounding wire. When replacing a plug, this wire must be attached to only the grounding pin.
DO NOT use extension cords.

Machine Operation

Powering the Escape®

The Escape® Truckmount can be powered by a few different methods whether in a van or in a home or office.

Cord 1 Vacuum 1 & Solution Pump 19 amps
Cord 2 Vacuum 2 & Pump-Out 18 amps

Method 1 – Two 115V 20 amp circuits.
The Escape® can be powered off of two separate 115V 20 amp circuits.
Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 12Method 2 – 3-prong or 4-prong dryer outlet.
All Escape® features can be powered using one of either the 5003 3-prong or 5004 4-prong adapters plugged into a 230V dryer outlet.
Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 13Method 3 – Powering in a van with a generator.
When using the Escape® in a van or truck, you will need a generator to power it. You can use either a generator that runs off your van or truck’s engine or one that has its own motor and fuel tank.
Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 14Mytee recommends the use of a 10,000-watt generator with this unit. This will supply ample power for the ETM.
However, the Escape® can be run on some 6,000-watt generators, depending on the manufacturer. Generators are rated differently, so if using a 6,000-watt generator the rating must represent continuous running watts, not peak watts.
In any case, check with the generator manufacturer to ensure the unit can provide 40 amps at 115 volts continuously.
Dual Circuit Indicator Light & Tone
The Escape® is equipped with a Dual Circuit Indicator
Light & Tone activates when the unit is plugged into two separate 115V, 20 amp circuits and is ready to be powered on.
Connecting Vacuum & Solution Hoses
The Escape® features a 2.5” Cuff-Lynx™ vacuum hose connection as well as a standard 1/4” quick disconnect fitting for solution hoses.

Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 15

Chemical Injection
Fill the included 7 qt. bottle with the chemical concentration of your choice. With a cleaning tool connected, switch on the pump and pull the trigger on your tool to keep water flowing. Turn the chemical injection knob counter-clockwise to open the valve. This allows chemicals to siphon into the line. Turn the knob until you see the bubble reach the desired gallons per hour of chemical. Follow the chemical manufacturer’s instructions for the correct ratio.

Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 16

IMPORTANT: If the chemical injection will not be used, make sure the chemical injector is closed by turning the knob all the way clockwise.

Using the Pump-Out

Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 17

Connect the included pump-out hose to the cam lock fitting on the front of the machine. The other end of the hose can be placed in a holding tank for recovered water. Switch on the pump-out on the switch plate in order to turn it on. Recovered water will automatically be pumped from the Escape’s® recovery tank to your holding tank.

Emptying the Solution and Recovery Tanks

Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 18

The Escape® features tank drain valves on the recovery and solution tanks. The pump-out can also be used to empty the recovery tank.

Preparing for Freezing Weather

Mytee ETM-LX-115 Escape Electric Truck Mount User Manual  & troubleshooting 19
Read this if you’re in a cold climate.
Freezing temperatures can cause damage to the internal components of the Escape® if there is excess water in the system. If freezing temperatures are expected, be sure to drain all the water from both tanks and use the winterizing pump drain valve on the front of the machine to drain any excess water from the pump.

Machine Maintenance

In order to keep the Escape® running smoothly and reduce the risk of damage to the machine and subsequent downtime, Mytee recommends following the maintenance schedule below:

Maintenance Item Daily Weekly
Clean and inspect tanks. X
Clean and inspect hoses. X
Check and clean internal filters. X
Check the power supply cable. X
Clean machine with all-purpose cleaner and cloth. X
Check spray nozzles. X
Flush solution system with Mytee System Maintainer. X
Remove float shut-off screen from tank and clean. X
Inspect vacuum hoses for holes and loose cuffs. X
Lubricate wheels with water-resistant oil. X
Inspect the machine for water leaks and loose hardware. X
Filter Maintenance

The Escape® has a small mesh screen filter on the end of the solution intake hose in the solution tank. This filter should be checked and cleaned after each use.
There is also a foam filter in the recovery tank on the vacuum intake that should be checked and cleaned after each use.

Float Maintenance

Recovery Tank Float Switch
Located in the recovery tank. This float prevents recovered dirty water from rising too high and damaging the vacuum motors. Check regularly to make sure it moves up and down easily.
Auto Pump-Out Float Switch
Located in the recovery tank. This electronic float switch activates the auto pump-out when the water level in the tank reaches it. It is important to remove any debris that might prevent the float switch from activating.

Auto-Fill Shut-Off Float
Located in the solution tank. Prevents the auto-fill from over-filling the solution tank. Make sure nothing is preventing this float from moving upward.

System Maintainer

Weekly flushing of the solution system with Mytee® System Maintainer helps keep lines clean and prevents chemical build-up, improving pump life, performance, and pressure.

How to use System Maintainer:

  1. Mix 1-quart 3601 System Maintainer with 1-quart of warm water.
  2. After thoroughly mixing, pour this solution into the solution tank.
  3. Turn the pump on FIRST, and run the solution through your cleaning tool. NOTE: The jet should be removed from the cleaning tool in order to prevent clogging due to the loosening of deposits in line.
  4. Next, with the pump on, begin running the solution through the machine. This allows the solution to break down any build-up in the lines.
  5. After running all of the solutions through the machine, fill the tank with clean, warm water. Run the water through the machine to clear the solution completely out of the
    tank & lines.
