  1. We showed our trailer last week and the party wanted some quick measurements after the visit to make sure the EII would fit beside his garage. What he asked for prompted me to do this extremely rough sketch for him...and I thought dropping it here might be useful. It looks at the EII from the FRONTAL view, with the door and steps open. Text that went along with the sketch: Here are the measurements you asked for and a bit more on the front view sketch with Steps and Door Open. The drawing is at a scale of 3” per square, or 4 squares / 1 foot. Height: (T

  2. Be a bit careful when talking to Oliver Service regarding "gelcoat match". Over the years Oliver has used slightly different "colors" of white from at least two different manufacturers. Be absolutely sure that you have and verify your hull number in order to make sure that you are getting what you ask for. Bill

  4. David, To confirm the wiring is good to the sender on the side of the tank, press the water button on the SeeLevel monitor twice so it shows a continues readout. Then short across the two leads, on the top of the sender with any metal object. If the monitor reads a short "sht", you know the wiring to the sender is good and the sender needs replaced.

  5. The fresh water tank can be seen if you lift the access hatch closest to the stove under the curbside bed. The fresh tank is the translucent low flat tank. Part of the gray water tank can also be seen there. The level sensor is a small green circuit board mounted on the end of the fresh tank facing the back end of the trailer. Just happened to have mine open for de winterizing.

  6. Paraffin wax does the trick.

  7. They chose the wrong bikes for the long way round. The franchise started going downhill from there. Yes, I am a KTM owner. 🤣

  8. I tried the silicone spray method on mine and it helped tremendously. Use very little and a q-tip to spread it around. Cover the area with a rag or paper towel to eliminate over spray.

  9. dewdev, We use Meguiar's Flagship marine wax for cleaning and waxing. It will remove some stains/spots and make new spots & stains where waxed easy to remove. We had some water spots that could not removed by waxing. Called Meguiar's and they recommended using their #67 one step compound, then using their Flagship marine wax. This process took care of the spots. We purchased Ollie used and now looks better than when purchased.

  10. I've heard about this engineering department. Out of curiosity, I googled (ducked?) 'recommended suspension clearance for trailers'. The only relevant result I got was a comment from an eTrailer rep who said that they recommend 3".

  11. Mine is a little sticky but I don’t lube it, I just leave it slightly loose from fully tightened (like all the ones inside). It isn’t going to fly off. Try some silicone spray, just a little on the threads, then wipe off any overspray with isopropyl alcohol. Make sure the threads are clean and not deformed in any way. Do NOT apply grease, you have to reach through the hole, yuck! John Davies Spokane WA

  12. Yes. You need to know the RAL number for your trailer. I know the white on our 2008 is different than newer trailers, as Oliver had to order it for us especially when we had some repairs done. Just for future reference, it might be something to ask now, and add it to your documentation for future reference. Years down the road, the white may change slightly, too, from uv. So, even then, custom may just be "very close." I will say, I can't find the repaired spots in ours, and they were done 9 or 10 years down the road.

  13. Yep - been there done that too. There are a number of solutions but all tend to stem from the same place and you are on the right track - lube. However, I would not recommend over doing it. Something as simple as paraffin wax or the next time you have whatever regular wax that you use on the rest of the Ollie out, spread a little on the threads of either the cover or base plate. Bill

  14. I had a very detailed response - but never mind - This is not something that should be occurring. Oliver relies on Jason and crew to carry the day for the manufacturing foibles. Glad to see the problem is on the fix. Best in class - well it is a low bar.... RB

  15. Our 2019 Elite II Hull 461 has the correct short shackles on both the street and curb side suspension. Hopefully Oliver reaches out to their Elite I customers to have theirs checked to see if the short shackles were mistakenly installed. And that could be a tongue twister. She sells short suspension shackles on the street side.

  16. I have had excellent success with this product in removing the black “weeping” streaks. I spray it on a soft new clean micro fiber cloth sparingly and it removes the black streaks quickly. I then follow up with waxing the entire area. So far so good. This may or may not work for your application, but worth a try. -Patriot

  17. Elite I Oliver Owners, Jason confirmed with their QC/Engineering department that the LE1 trailers should have 1.5" of upward travel. Therefore the upward travel on our trailer was not within the design specs. Jason offered to have our trailer inspected by their shop or a local provider to determine what might be our issue. Upon further discussion with Jason and a few more photos sent to him, we quickly determined the source of our issue was the incorrect Dexter Heavy Duty Kit Shackle was used on our single axle setup. The correct shackle kit (K71358) has shackles that are 4 5/8" in le

  18. Memo from Xantrex: http://www.xantrex.com/documents/Inverter-Chargers/Freedom XC/FXC PRO Remote compatibility Memo.pdf Note: This memo is from 8 months ago. I'd be curious to know what panel part numbers/serial numbers are on the units that are acting up.
