  1. I guess we never worry about our bathroom vent popping open as many times I’ll leave it open with the rear windows open a bit to let air flow through while traveling down the road.
  2. Made me wanna throw up watching all that. Approx 1 mile/Kw, Over an hour to get enough juice to go another 100 plus miles, having to unhook in most cases. I'll stick with our big boy diesel. I'm not really concerned about the price of fuel, I planned for this lifestyle for nearly 20 years and calculated fuel at $5.00/gal into those plans. Load up....
  3. The castle nut should never be tight enough to not be able to be removed by hand. But, I believe a 1-3/16” will work.
  4. Our truck keeps up with it and tells me when it is due.
  5. Have you noticed that when the tow/haul mode is engaged, the last gauge changes from an amp meter to transmission temperature?
  6. Take a look at this article. Substitute “trailer”every time it says “home.” https://www.thedrive.com/
  7. After futzing around with the leaking high marker light for about three years, I finally dug all the caulking out from around the lens. After bedding it in butyl tape I re-caulked it and thought everything was fine. This was all done in a campground in Idaho several years ago. The next rain proved that it was not fine and upon closer examination, I discovered water was still coming around a marker light adjacent to the lens. Rather than trying to get it out and caulk around it, I just covered the inside of the fixture with caulk. Five years and not a drop since. I would not fool with trying to remove one of the markers lights unless I was going to have to replace it.
  8. This may be the answer to the problem of not enough charging stations. https://iplayerhd.com/player/video/dae6a69a-adb1-4692-aaba-cff7e6bcd493
  9. We weighed our truck and trailer on the way back from the Rally last month. It came in just under 18,000 pounds. No matter which one of us is driving, Tali and I have agreed to rarely swerve to miss something. A woman pushing a baby carriage, Sasquatch or a VERY large tree would merit a reasonable evasive maneuver. A bicyclist in the middle of the road or an animal weighing less than 500 pounds will be evaluated on an individual basis. Most of us have upwards of $150K to $200K invested here. A $.50 cat goes into $200K one time with nothing left over. We did have mule deer to cross in front of us in Colorado the other day. Standing on the brakes and sitting on the horn enabled it to clear the guard rail on the outside of the road, we missed him by about two feet. Be careful out there…
  10. This setup would not work with any of the older Elite II’s as the opening into the pantry is much larger and opening the door would hit the toaster.
  11. I mounted my signal booster inside the bathroom vanity attached to the front wall. I drew power from the switch that turns the camera on. Our new truck monitors the trailer tires as well as its own so I removed it all and sold it to a new owner
  12. I put a Hub Odometer on our first Oliver and then moved it to our current Oliver. It quit about 5-6 years ago. The battery inside died and is not replaceable. Our new 2022 Silverado 3500 HD keeps up with the trailer mileage now anyway.
  13. Sorry KP, I was just baiting you and everyone else. We all know what happened 18 months ago. I don’t like it either.
