The OP must mean 19QB.
OP, as I have said, in numerous Geo/E-pro threads, many have no clue how much tongue weight a single axle trailer will put on the tow vehicle.
Having a payload of only 827lbs, makes the heavier tongue weights of a single axle m7ch worse.
You're overloading the Escape by a LOT! The fantasy "dry" tongue of 413, already exceeds the Escape's max hitch weight of 350lbs, BEFORE you add the weight of the battery, options, water and cargo.
You should have bought a smaller trailer, as it's too much for an Escape. With that kind of tongue weight, an Explorer is the minimum needed.
