  1. That is ours. Hull #520. We just got back from a 3 month trip in the southwest. Both the truck and Ollie get a bath next week.

  3. If you don't mind sharing, how was your factory tune up experience? We are scheduled for the factory tune up the first week in December before we head to Florida and then west to AZ and UT. We picked up our 2019 in October of 2019 drove it back to Maine and winterized it until the first week of February 2020. We got to the FL Keys and were heading west when Covid kicked in. We were out for 45 days. We returned home like many folks did at that time. We have not been out since. We are going out for a few days in June. We will then put the Ollie up until we head South for our tune up

  4. I recently posted on a thread about storage boxes that fit into the basket on the Ollie tongue. One photo showed a grey water waste tote that I sometimes carry on top of the storage tote. I got a PM from @stlipa asking what kind of tote I bought, and why I chose that one. I decided to post my answer here on the forum. I started researching totes and discovered that they come in various sizes, 6 gallon, 10 gallon, 11 gallon, 12 gallon, 15 gallon, 18 gallon. I just looked on Amazon and I even find 25 gallon and 38 gallon models. One gallon of water weighs 8.34 lbs, so you can do the math.

  5. Another thing about dumping on the ground. Even with the cleanest grey water after a couple of days grey water takes on a smell of its own. If its bad enough you and everyone around you will know you dumped on the ground. As stated the fines are large .

  6. The only way I ever make the connection to the tee is shut off the tank valve first for safety. Attach your hose then attach the hose to what ever appliance you are using turn the tank valve back on. Make sure your appliance is also turned off before you turn the tank valve back on When your done with the appliance keep it running turn off the tank valve this will empty any propane left in the line, Diconnect the hose and turn the propane back on. Very simple steps. I think you have to do the same for the quick connect you turn off the valve at the connection before attaching your h

  8. I like the Drivin’ and Vibin’ videos and Kyle makes some good points on why not to get solar. I disagree with his first point... we’ve found that camping in National Parks is usually a dry camping experience. Having electrical hookups is the exception rather than the rule, especially in the west. I agree that if you like campgrounds with hook ups then solar is not necessary. That’s what we thought we would do when we got our Oliver 5 years ago, I got the solar package “just in case”. As it turns out, we camp a lot in BLM and FS campgrounds, so I’m glad we opted for the solar. Mike

  9. John, I like the the Furrion port and wish it was rated for 20A, but when purchased all I could find was a 10A Furrion port. Last time I checked 1 1/2 years ago Oliver installed Zamp ports. I installed the Furrion port, still have the plug on my desk drilled out of Ollie, looking at it right now. Had to be sure where I was drilling! 🙂 I'm not an electrical expert either. 🙂 Zamp website shows connecting your controller directly connected to batteries.

  10. I have left the vent open - but it was in error - and your right it doesn't make much difference on the inside temp's. However, I have thought about a cool looking deflector - AKA - the roof mounted bike racks- mounted to the solar panels - Say a blue tinted plastic - with some graphics matching the Ollie. Not sure what good it would add - but hey - then I would have something - JD would have to catch up........😀😄 ( I am so far behind on his new improvements to Ollie)

  11. I don't understand! What is all the fuss. I use a heavy thick black grease - just goop it on, smear it around real well - and then use a torque wrench with Loong bar with a special tool end to tighten and take off. Works beery beery well. 😵 NO wait - that was a dream/nightmare - neverminded. Still recovering from that Russian pop music fiasco......

  12. We are staying at a great little RV resort in Gulf Shores Alabama called Bay Breeze. The staff Is friendly and it’s very neat, clean and well run. The local fresh seafood is excellent! Time to go explore Fort Morgan. We were originally headed to Fort Pickens and discovered it was closed due to flooding of the main road leading to the park. Naturally. We did well landing our Ollie here. Adventures Onward!

  14. No problem and you're welcome. For what its worth, over the winter I purchased one of THESE for the couch. I got mine at the local WalMart for under $16.00. I'm thinking that I can eliminate a throw pillow or two and get a touch more comfortable for reading and/or lounging. Bill
