  1. We’ve only had a few adventures so far, but here’s a couple pictures. One is boondocking near Salida, CO. The other is my daughter reading during a rainy afternoon at Arapaho Bay CG- you can see that she has really made her little corner her own!

  2. The optional 2000 watt onboard inverter is a great option to have if you like to get off-grid or even if you have a lengthy drive to get where you are going. The way the optional on-board inverter works is by taking battery (DC) power and converting it over to (AC) 110 power. It is tied to the campers 110 receptacles and microwave to provide power for use when a shore connection isn’t available. However, the inverter does depend on the battery power and it can only provide up to about 15 – 16 amps of power at a single time. This means that if the battery power is too low then some of the more

  3. We just returned from four nights at Stephen Foster Folk and Cultural Center where we had the first opportunity to use the 12 x 12 Clam room. What a pleasure. Sets up in less than two minutes, great space with the tall vertical walls, and kept all the bugs out. We camped with another family and even with seven at the picnic table it was roomy. Rain threatened one night so we picked it up and set it over one of our tenters for extra protection. This is a great addition to our camping experience.

  4. Update: About two hours ago I ran the outdoor shower for a few seconds making sure the faucets were full out and then completely shut off before turning the faucets off again. I then turned the hose-connected faucet at the city water connection back on, went inside the Ollie and turned the pump off. I then ran some city water through the lines for a couple seconds. When I returned from both a nature hike with Bob the dog as well as a wonderful bike ride on the Hart-Montague Bike Trail, there was not yet any overflow from the fresh water tank. We shall see if this promising development maintain

  5. Colorado National Monument, near Fruita CO, summer thunderstorm brewing: Upper Sunshine Reservoir, near Meeteetse WY, boondocking sunset: Reflection in a Stick and Staple RV’s back window while stuck in a traffic jam: All these were done with our iPhones. Pretty amazing quality IMHO. I no longer bother to bring our DSLR. John Davies Spokane WA

  7. Should not be a problem. Just put a foam something down so you don't slip or scratch it.

  8. My two cents, having just gone through this decision making process. Having proved to myself my well traveled and always reliable 2004 GMC 4x4 5.3L, 1/2 ton was marginal at towing the bigger Ollie, especially where elevation is involved, I did a lot of research (for months as I waited on my ollie) on the 3/4 ton truck market. I ruled out Ram, nothing wrong with them, I just don't like the way they look. I was strongly leaning towards a Ford Power stroke diesel, and having driven several, including a 2019, I was price shopping, looking for a used or new crew cab 4x4. ( The "used" owners as a g

  9. A good thing is to check CarFax for the locations the vehicle was registered in versus dates. This may give a clue as to whether it was potentially in a flood. When looking at a vehicle for one of our daughters we came across a car that was in New Orleans in 2005 (Katrina). It has also been registered to multiple owners since 2005 and the time we were looking at it. Katrina was a well known event but there have certainly been plenty of other foods since. Not a gurantee that the vehicle wasn’t “just visiting” and got flooded but one more thing to look at for clues. - Randy

  10. It screamed at me when I test drove it. :-) A few 2019's are starting to come in so some dealers with a lot of inventory are starting to offer some good deals. It does ride a little rough on the interstate when empty but when the Ollie is hooked to it and gear is loaded it feels a lot better. It does not ride, turn, or park like our Tundra but its a big truck and when towing it is a dream and we primarily use it for a tow vehicle.

  11. Do you ever use the outside shower? I seem to recall that if the handles are slightly open and the shower head is not depressed, then there is bleed between the two systems. I'm not positive though, its just in the back of my mind. Otherwise, isolate out the pump, if necessary disconnect and cap output line, or disconnect input side (with screen filter) and connect a long hose to it and put in sink, this is to test the back flow valve (built into the pump), they sometimes just go bad or don't close fully, it's an easy change, is probably under warranty and it doesn't matter how much you p

  13. Stop and have a peanut butter Whoopie Pie and an ice cold Moxie to complete the experience. We are 2 miles off the Interstate, 40 miles N of Portland if you need anything...

  14. Going, Our 2015 Ollie Furrion speakers would work while watching a DVD played by the Furrion unit connected to TV by HDMI cable. Set TV as per following Oliver video instructions. The Furrion speakers still would not work while watching TV on antenna until I added audio cable between our TV & Furrion unit. Here's a thread and video: http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/help-with-tv-and-sound/
