  1. John, I just tried to send you a private message. The system says that you can’t receive private messages???
  2. Probably either Camping World or Walmart. Also check out Amazon I’ve seen many different designs there as well.
  3. I didn’t, the sewer hose cap comes with a male garden hose fitting as part of the cap. I added a standard ball valve from a Home Depo type store that has male garden hose threads on one end and female garden hose threads on the other. If the sewer hose has liquid in it you can aim the ball valve into the campground sewer connection and easily/safely empty the sewer hose before removing the cap. Note: this is for liquid only….wink wink!
  4. Just another idea for leaving the sewer hose connected to the trailer. I’ve had the hose connected since pickup in 2017 without any issues. I use a cap on the hose end that also has a garden hose connection. I also have a small ball valve attached to the cap. This makes it easy/controlled to drain the hose if it’s filled with liquid.
  5. I think that we are looking at it right now from Dead Horse Ranch State Park! Could it be Tuzigoot National Monument?
  6. Minnesota Oli-I have had the same experience. I upgraded to three Battle Born batteries and have the Blue Sky MPPT charge controller/system. The Blue Sky controller is fully programmable. I sent the BB folks a copy of the set-up page and asked them to put in the parameters that they wanted to see and it only took me a few minutes to program. My solar panel total back in 2017 was 320 watts. I do carry a portable 100 watt panel and have used it a couple of times just to test what the little extra can do but, have never really needed it or the 2000 watt generator. I have the usual installed electrical equipment plus a couple of years ago I switched out my unreliable propane fridge for a NovaKool compressor fridge so also have that constant load as well. 320 watts isn’t really ideal but, for reasonable power usage it does work. Even connected to shore power I never have needed the PD4045 shore power charger unless we have had several days of clouds and then only if the batteries were below 50%. All in all I’d say that the “older” factory set-up with the Blue Sky MPPT controller, three or four Battle Born batteries, and 2000 watt inverter is a great entry level system.
  7. According to my mileage/maintenance log we have 39,050 miles on hull 208 (2017). Getting ready to add about 7,000 miles this winter.
  8. The facility that I contacted is over 400 miles from my home. I first contacted the Dexter representative that had been at one of the Oliver rallies, he suggested that I call this particular distribution facility as it would be closest to me and just talk to the sales department. I know of another owner who called this facility after I did and also ordered the same parts for the same costs. I would call your closest distributor and get a price quote. Maybe the difference was me ordering four sets of everything. I tried to pm you and a note came up that you weren’t receiving pm’s. If we can get that fixed, when we get home from our trip I’ll send all the information that I have.
  9. John, I rebuilt my axles this past November and purchased all of the parts from Textrail. The facility that I happened to order from is in Cookeville Tennessee. Complete hub/drum assemblies including bearings were something like 45 +/-dollars each. Complete brake assemblies ready to mount were about the same 45 +/- dollars each for the self adjusting type. The manual adjustment type is less. My complete rebuild of four complete brake assemblies, four complete drum/hub/bearing/seals assemblies including shipping to my door was around $500. Hope this helps Side note: These parts were all genuine Dexter not an off brand.
  10. Ok, but the chart looks like they are showing the furnace fan only and the amps listed are at 120 VAC. Our camper furnaces run on DC/propane only. I may just test the furnace load while running.
  11. For general information, both the Suburban NT-20SEQ furnace and Suburban SW6DE water heater as installed in the 2017 (hull 208) Oliver LEII (information taken from my Oliver supplied as built sheet) are rated for 10.5 - 13.5 VDC. The Dinosaur replacement control board that I now have on my water heater is rated for 10 - 19 VDC. The Blue Sky solar controller is programmed for maximum voltage of 14.6, acceptance charge of 14.4, and float charge of 13.6 VDC. These settings are per the Battle Born folks. From the above information and the fact that the Progressive Dynamics PD4045 charger also produces 14.6 VDC, we should install a voltage regulator on each appliance. Unless the original control boards have been replaced with Dinosaur control boards! Also I no longer have the Dometic fridge so don’t know/don’t care what it’s voltage specs were! Anyone happen to know what the DC amperage draw is for the Suburban furnace while running?
  12. Mountainman198, the wheels are lug-centric. There is a bunch of clearance (probably 1/2 inch at least) between the wheel ID and the hub OD and, the lug nuts are matching tapers with the wheels.
  13. Hull number 208, 2017. Wheels were not balanced but I requested that they be balanced during my pickup inspection. I guess technically they were balanced when the trailer actually left the factory!
