  2. At 1 gallon per minute that's a lot of pumping to fill a 52 gallon bladder. But then that bladder plus the Ollie's tank would give my wife and me 15 days of water.

  3. Yes to all. Katadyn Expedition filter first followed by Viqua UV to purify.

  5. It's expansion and contraction. 95 outside 55 degree air blowing from the A/C unit. Ours has always done it.

  6. Kgeb - The only "failure" I've had with my EZ gutters has been where the 3M tape actually loosened from the gutter - not the Oliver. To fix this I removed the tape from both the gutter (where it was still stuck) and from the Oliver. Then I cleaned both surfaces and applied a thin coating of "E6000" (available at WalMart, Amazon, etc.) to the back of the gutter and pressed it in place. I then used "painter's tape" to hold the gutter in place overnight. That was now over two years ago and the gutter has not failed again. Bill

  7. Update, Fix a slow drain or airlock, by back flushing. Scroll down to the Nov 6 2020 post. I sometimes like to drain my fresh tank inside the RV bay, this tool saves a big wet mess all over the floor and I don't have to hook up the Land Cruiser to pull the trailer outside. I used a scrap length of 1/2" PEX pipe, a piece of 1/2" automotive heater hose, a 90 degree elbow water hose, and a female 1/2" garden hose adapter. I had all the parts in my scrap bins, so it took all of three minutes to build it. You can reach the tank drain line without even crawling under the

  9. You’ll be fine. We picked up our Elite II with a 2012 Tacoma. Towed for about 6K miles with no issues. It had over 100K miles so I traded up to a half ton for more cargo capacity and a bigger gas tank. Mike

  10. We are quite a ways from Hohenwald, too. We found a reliable local family run RV repair shop that is able to do about anything we need. Just got it back from bearings and brakes servicing before our fall and winter trips. If you need to have warranty work done your local facility can do it and Oliver will reimburse. It’s been very easy for us. Mike

  11. I thought it was the expedition model. Pricey, but very fast, a long lasting cartridge.

  14. I'd never seen the Froli system, but it looks really interesting. Actually, looking at their website, they have a lot of products that interest me. I really like the magnetic door hold, which would be good for the bath door of course, but I'm thinking it might be a nice addition for the main door as well, if it will work with the curve of the hull. Both my wife and I tend to want to close the door while it's still latched open and I know I'm going to pull the clasp out of the hull one day. Their levelers look like a nice option for people like me who don't care for the Andersens.

  15. I think my favorite spot for the shunt is on the side of the battery box, bolted through. That way it’s solidly secured and out of the way. Then run a 4/0 cable to either a bus bar or combiner post, whichever you prefer. And that can be located pretty much anywhere - you’ll find that Oliver regularly changes up where they place electrical equipment, so what works great for some people might not work well for you. I do think either a bus or combiner post is needed - I think you’d have a hard time getting all the various negative cables attached directly to the shunt securely. Wiring

  16. That’s interesting. I thought I remembered seeing a photo of an Oliver with the bolts facing the other way, which is why I was surprised to see that mine weren’t. I guess Oliver just wasn’t consistent with how they were installed. I wonder if it would be possible to get a grinder between the hull and frame to cut off the bolt heads then pull them through.

  17. Likely overtightened. Looked pretty “squeezed” when I last looked.

  18. Tody, I helped someone else with this, who just completed their install on a 2017, last week. I would be more than happy to talk it through with you and/or get you in touch with the Oliver owner who just completed the work. If you are interested, please PM me with your contact information.

  19. It’s a little late for pictures tonight, but I’ll give you this to think about. When I got finished with my Victron BMV-712 installation, there were only 3 wires going into the battery box. 1 to the battery negative, 1 to the battery positive and 1 from the Victron temperature sensor. I installed a positive and negative buss bar in the lower hull under the pantry on the walkway wall. Mossey

  20. I wouldn’t stick the gutters on and then leave for a camping trip. I think being parked for a few warm days ensures a lasting installation.

  21. Perhaps its a bit late in the day for this but it is never too late to remember. Bill Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence? Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured. Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War. They sign

  23. That's plenty for two shirts and a pair of shorts. Unless you're on the road for more than three weeks, that should do.
