  1. Hello everyone! I have been lurking on here for a bit waiting for my chance to finally post. 🙂 I have been waiting until my Oliver was whole again! While I was waiting and watching there were even some posts about my Ollie in its previous incarnation. It was hard to hold my tongue 😜 LE hill #25 is a trailer once more! Some of you may be disappointed that she is no longer a monster adventure rig, but I am over the moon now that I can tow her. It was quite the odyssey to collect all of the pieces and find the right person to set things right, but she is back together and our adventures together have begun!

  2. This is most excellent, if you want to understand why lithium batteries are so cool. "You have just sold your first-born into slavery, remortgaged the house, and bought yourself a lithium-ion battery! Now you want to know how to take care of your precious new purchase: How to best charge lithium-iron batteries, how to discharge them, and how to get the maximum life out of your lithium-ion batteries. This article will explain the do’s and don’ts." How to Find Happiness With LiFePO4 (Lithium-Ion) Batteries John Davies Spokane WA EDIT: That is a pdf that doesn't print well. I made a Pages doc out of it, that can be printed and added to your Ollie records, if you like. JD How to Find Happiness With LiFePO4 (Lithium-Ion) Batteries - Solacity .pages

  3. Hello, I have been meaning to post a link to a great educational source. https://www.explorist.life/ He has many videos on YouTube, also called explorist.life, and he goes through all the steps of a diy camper electric install. His website runs through the steps that he goes over in the video. His You Tube videos are great! Kirk

  4. Yes, a lot was removed to make the adventure rig. Axle was removed and the front portion of the trailer (tongue and everything on it) was actually cut off the rest of the frame 😱I was able to track down the original pieces and get them from a previous owner through these forums! The seller and previous owner were great and supportive of me putting her back together, but it was quite the journey!

  5. @Seadawg is correct. My 2020 trailer came with 2 standard lead acid deep cycle batteries, no extra cost. I also had the optional solar package with controller (no longer an option). See pics, my batteries looked just like @Ralph Mawyer, sealed. Controller was set at Lead Acid, not AGM. I used them for about a week, they worked well! However, I couldn’t resist the urge for more power, sold them on Facebook Marketplace, and replaced with 2 BattleBorn Lithium.

  6. Hi, Sarah, and welcome to the forum! I'm glad to see your Ollie in such beautiful condition, and back on the road. Brandi Shaffer replaced her sliders in #10. (The adorable red Jellybean). She had new doors manufactured locally. I think she went over the molded plastic trim rings. We used an Ikea flip up door when we converted the microwave cavity to a big cupboard. You can see some pictures and discussions in the thread below. No, I don't think you'd ruin your Oliver by changing out the doors. Many of us enjoy personalizing and modifying our Ollies.

  9. An amazing restoration. Did the previous owner keep all the major parts that were removed? Looks like the Oliver frame, axle, LP tank doghouse, etc. were all removed for mounting on the truck.

  12. Hello! I’m a new owner of a 2008 LE. Wondering if anyone has a similar vintage and can recommend good updates from the factory or otherwise? I really like the frosted storage compartment doors and wondered if anyone has had the old sliding doors swapped out for the new style? Would I be “ruining” it by not it original?

  13. I expect whoever holds the loan will specify the conditions under which you may sell, and how the sale must be handled. They may insist on loan payoff, or they may be willing to allow the buyer to assume the loan. They may also require that any sale be handled through an escrow agent, to ensure that the proceeds are used to pay off the loan balance, plus fees, if any. I recommend you contact that entity to find out what they require.

  14. John - A fair number of these ladders seem to be very much alike and simply offered under different brand names. The one that I purchased has a fabric case and I waited around for a couple of months - using Camel, Camel, Camel to price shop - before I got it on sale. While I checked to make sure that the one I bought had reasonable reviews and ratings I didn't necessarily want or need the absolute best ladder out there. This was due to the fact that I didn't plan on using it that often since it would mainly be for emergency purposes while on the road. Be sure to get one that is at least rated for 25 (I went 50) pounds over what you think the heaviest person's weight that will be using it in order to allow for clothing, boots, and things that might be carried along with the user.

  17. @topgun2 @Mike and Carol Unfortunately we combined a couple battery types in this thread. The original topic was asking about the 6v upgraded battery option. My first post was my educated guess on which (agm) battery Oliver was using that turned out to be correct. Those are a great option and look to be a high quality battery. Half way down the thread Ralph posted a picture of his 12v wet lead acid battery (not agm) that is sealed from the factory and not serviceable. Similar to Ralph and Mike I ordered a trailer that has the wet cell option so I could upgrade to 3 BB within the year. IMO a sealed lead acid battery that does not incorporate AGM technology is the bottom of the barrel setup because it will not allow the end user to replenish the water as it boils off under hard usage (or during the equalization charge cycle).

  20. I won’t speak for @Dunnet but as for myself, even though I have an iPhone, I will continue to use window’s for everything else. Windows still holds the title as the world’s most used operating system on desktops and laptops with a 39.5 percent market share. I have hundreds of thousands of files stored on a 144TB NAS system. These files contain every photo me or my family has taken in the past 100 years plus mp3 files of every Billboard Hot 100 hit from 1940 on. The windows programs that keep all this organized and accessible work very well. It ain’t broke and I don’t want to learn a new system.

  21. It's one of those venn diagram things. All agm batteries are sealed lead acid. All sealed lead acid batteries are not agm. To put your mind at ease, I'd suggest you open a service ticket with your question. And, a photo of your batteries, or the product code. It's a legitimate question.

  23. I'm a one-cup-in-the-morning gal and hubby does not drink coffee. I'd like to skip bringing anything big or electric, and the French press is too acidic for me, so I've been on the hunt for a non-electric, easy clean, no effort coffee (I appreciate an excellent brew but I'm not picky). I found this - MyJo single cup coffee maker online. Yes, it is a "made for TV, Presto" product, so I may be wasting my $25, but I'm going to give it a whirl. It takes Keurig cups or reusable pods you can refill. If anyone has feedback about this little gadget it would be appreciated! Plan B is a filter #2 pour-over set up.

  25. I'm not sure that I understand. This type of battery (sealed AGM) was considered to be the most desirable battery on the market when they first came out and it has only been since the lithium craze that they have lost their luster a bit. Both my 2017 Ford and my 2021 Subaru have this type of battery as original equipment as do many other vehicles on the market. These batteries do not spill acid, do not require regular maintenance and they last a reasonable amount of time. As with any battery, they should be cared for properly - kept cleaned and charged properly. Yes, in ideal conditions they might not last quite as long as the old regular lead acid batteries that required a bunch more attention but the other benefits generally outweighed this factor. Of course, lithium batteries are now considered to be superior. But, that superiority come at a reasonably hefty price - at least in the short run. Bill

Hi, you probably saw this already, is this yours? https://www.technomadia.com/oliverforsale/ Or this? https://www.technomadia.com/zephyr/oliver/ It would be helpful if you could provide a build list and any current add-on equipment, or at least post a bunch of pics.

  27. I was wrong about the top as @topgun2 mentioned in the other thread. These are really the least desirable type of battery so I’m kind of bummed. The problem is the batteries will vent if pushed hard and there is no way to replenish them. SD had a great point/question above…we might want to use the agm setting to avoid boiling off excess h2o.

  29. Oliver doesn't offer the old style un-sealed lead acid batteries anymore. The batteries in the last two pictures are sealed batteries. However, FrankC's battery picture above with the 12V blue label on them ARE flooded cell lead acid batteries that are NOT sealed. Therefore FrankC's batteries do need distilled water to be added to them every so often while the batteries in the last two pictures are sealed and there is no way to add liquid even if you wanted to.

  32. The “G” in AGM does not stand for gel. AGM means absorbed glass mat. Here’s a good article that explains the technology. AGM batteries still use lead plates and sulfuric acid, so they are still a type of “lead acid” battery, but the plates in an AGM battery have fiberglass mesh mats separating the plates, and some other construction differences as well. Old traditional lead acid batteries (the ones you have to top up with water every so often) are wet cell batteries. Based on the link posted above by Chris, your Brightway batteries are AGMs, and your solar controller should be set for AGM batteries. https://www.interstatebatteries.com/blog/what-is-an-agm-battery-and-whats-the-big-deal

  33. John - I don't specifically know if the Brightways are gel or not but from the description below it would appear that they are AGM. This sealed lead acid battery is an non spillable, deep cycle, maintenance-free, valve regulated (VRLA), rechargeable battery. Able to be used with a wide variety of applications; it has a wide operating temperature, long service life and deep discharge recovery. Compatible replacement for Trojan T-105 This battery has automotive style post terminals as well as stud terminals. Meets or exceeds the OEM sealed lead acid battery specifications. We supply only brand new, factory fresh, high quality batteries. These batteries are completely spill proof and leak proof. To better understand terminals and connectors click here. What makes this Bright Way Group battery different The key to this battery technology is the porous glass mat separators, which completely absorb and trap electrolyte (battery acid). Golf cart battery arrives fully charged, ready to go. Where you can use this 6V 220AH battery Alarm panels, UPS Backup, electric power systems, emergency backup power supply, emergency lighting, railway signals, aircraft signals, communication power supply, gate operator equipment and solar.

  34. Yes, there is a difference with AGM (absorbed glass mat) being the newer of the two technologies. For a full explanation - simply Google "sealed lead acid versus AGM. Bill

  35. I took your advice and purchased the Trailer Valet XL from Costco. I've also ordered the bolt-on frame bracket since it appears to be sturdier than the ball mount. We're picking up our LE-2 in April. I have indoor storage in what is essentially an aircraft hangar with a level concrete floor. I can pull my truck within ten feet of my parking spot. I just need this thing to move the Ollie the rest of the way. I'll post a progress report with pics and video.

  36. You cannot get LOST on the Prairie, only confused. "Where am I" is not what the family wants to hear. They are already terrified. OK? North is where it always has been. Same with the other directions. Find Landmarks and know what direction they are from where you are presently. Have whoever is following the map follow the road. You will also see it on the Tow Vehicles GPS... sometimes. Your clearance is better than most of ALL AIrstreams. We have a 3 inch lift to make up for the low clearances. It is the Length that gets you into trouble. Dragging the rear... is for tired hikers and for low clearance trailers. Olivers... you will have to work at dragging the bumper. Travel in twos. Safety in good company, Too much company, three or more... too many different likes and dislikes. You cannot fly fish in the desert. You cannot swim in the Yellowstone River... unless you want to drown in Montana. Those kinds of others... Have company that likes to do what you are doing. We have not found anyone... once and we never see them again. 🙂 It is hard to describe. OK? Planning? Nope. Not at all. We do not know where we will be going or getting lost at. RV Parks for those owners who like RV Parks and tourism. We have our trailer to Explore and create an Adventure, if we planned or did not plan to discover unknown 'ends of the road'. Next time going in the Rocky Mountains region. No Plans. Plenty of DeLorme Atlases. Food, Water, a couple good hats in the event one blows off the cliff, and comfortable sandals, shoes or boots. I climb with my sturdy Sandals for decades. My mountain boots had their purpose...now they hold the floor down in the closet. Not inspired, yet? That tells me you are not interested. That is good for your safety and comfort. This is not for everyone. Maybe less than 15% of trailer owners. Crowds? Only if you are giving away Free Flathead Cherry Pie along the Yellowstone River... I am only showing you those photos to discourage some from trying this. If you saw only the 'End of the Trail 'photographs... I would have to find a small place to camp, as everyone and their ATVs and idling Generators... it is NOT the End of the Road. It is the Bye Bye beginning. You can do this. Well, maybe after a few mistakes, but the best is out there for everyone. Take a deep breath... if you coughed... maybe the dust will not do you well.

  39. The Oliver service department utilizes ASI 335 white & clear silicone, Red Devil butyl sealant, butyl tape, and Dicor self-leveling sealant to re-caulk/reseal the exterior of your camper. This process is based on years of experience here in the Oliver service department addressing and preventing leaks on our trailers. The primary goal when re-caulking/resealing at service intervals, especially roof penetrations, is ensuring there are no leaks. The roof is an area that is not typically seen unless you climb up on top but, again, is the most likely area for a leak to occur. Due to Oliver’s double fiberglass hull construction, any leaking water is trapped between the hulls until the water can find an escape point. Those points are typically a window cutout or one of the weep holes in the lower outer shell. Windows being a primary entry point often leads to an initial diagnosis that the window is leaking which is not necessarily the case. During the yearly maintenance, the exterior is sealed with the appropriate ASI 335 silicone. Once the silicone is cured, bolts and screws located on the roof then have an additional application of self-leveling sealant to provide an additional layer of protection, again, these areas aren’t typically seen to affect the aesthetics of the trailer. The additional layer also helps protect the silicone from sun exposure as well as sealing the head of screws and/or bolts. This precautionary step can be removed from the process if you prefer to have neat caulk seams over the extra protective layer of self-leveling sealant. The primary goal here at Oliver is to provide you the customer with a trailer free of leaks for enjoyable camping adventures.

  40. The current location for the batteries provides a semi-climate controlled area when the trailer is occupied. In cold weather camping, if you have lithiums, they have four sides that are at cabin temperature. On the tongue, if you’re camping in 20 degree weather then your batteries are at 20 degrees. You might be able to figure out a way to mount the batteries under the dinette seats somehow. I’d have to look at it. Mike

  41. "But I still do the math and wonder how far I can travel by other means on $150+k (tow vehicle + Oliver). Not to mentioned the fuel, insurance, maintenance costs (+$10/yr?)." I wrestled with that also. I did order an Oliver for November delivery as the places that appeal to me don't have hotels near them. RV parks don't appeal to me. Established campgrounds also aren't appealing. This trailer will be best suited to BLM land, COE camping areas, forest service spots. Basically I can go where most can't. I totally understand your reasoning too.

  43. We had the sliders. Hated them for two reasons. 1. The tracks were brittle and breaking. Fell out all of the time 2. harder to get stuff in and out because you only had 1/2 an opening to work with iron Horse RV in San Antonio made plexiglass doors. Attached the top hidden piano hinge with 3M tape and out super strong magnet catches at the bottom. We debated if the hinge should be at the top or bottom. Went with top. Figured it would be more secure while towing Jellybean #10

  44. I made this because the Owners Manual towing and camping lists are simply lame. This one is set up like an aircraft preflight checklist. Feel free to edit and change as needed, some items may not apply or you may just want to do it differently.

  45. I finally got some pictures of my spare tire modification. Since my trailer had the small sized spare tire and cover, I can not run the fiberglass cover over the full sized spare I now have. There is just enough room under the full sized tire to slip on the cloth tire cover. One slight advantage of the soft cover is that it doesn't stick out beyond the bumper like the fiberglass one does. I also upgraded all five wheels to the star wheel design in the pictures. The locking chain is fixed to the bracket behind the tire and goes through an eye bolt in front that will not allow the wing nut to be removed. If the tire is turned around, the wing nut and locking setup will stick out beyond the tire and the wing nut piece won't tighten up against the wheel to hold it securely. It might be better to change this whole bracket to a more conventional spare tire bracket that would mount the tire with the front out. This would allow for easy tire pressure checks and easier installation of the soft cover.
