  1. Well, hooked up to my tv and a proper platform sure made my life easier.
  2. I had a bit of a struggle removing the old cotter pin. I cut down the new one and was wondering if how I replaced it is ok?
  3. Just had that happen! Shattered in a bunch on pieces. Off to Home Depot for some wood.

    Tire date

    Thanks John! After getting my bearing completed I'll replace these outdated tires before hitting the road.
  5. Thank you all for your quick replies. I sensed possible danger here and I do like to be safety oriented. For someone like me a video is my best method of instruction. It clears away any doubt in my mind. I must also state that you guys on this website are amazing with your level of knowledge!
  6. It would be nice if Oliver service department would make a video showing the right process of lifting up the Oliver for maint.
  7. Thanks Bill. I stopped moving forward on this for now. I'll try hooking the trailer to my tow veh and use a piece on 2x4 as you've stated.
  8. Should I be using the rear stabilizers to help? I also don't like how the bottle jack looks. Does not look safe.
  9. I'm not feeling comfortable with jacking up the forward wheel. Is my positioning in the proper spot? The front is a pretty good bit off the ground. Got the back wheels chalked. Just checking before I continue.
  10. Mine where made on the 48wk of 2016. They are over 5 years old and will be replaced. Noticed this today. Just a reminder for others to keep on eye on your tire date. IMG_1835.HEIC
  11. Got my first wheel done and the job went very smoothly. Having the right tools sure does make things easier. Thanks everyone for posting your insight on this!
  12. I've finally got all my parts and getting ready for the task. I found this video very helpful!
  13. I've had this happen to me and had to go through a reset. The folks at Zamp are very good in troubleshooting as I don't remember how they helped get it working.
  14. Tallmandan mine would not turn on. Bought a new one problem solved.
  15. I did what Bill suggested and ended up needing a replacement. Got it from Amazon.
  16. FrankC, thanks for the informative info and your write up of tools needs is very helpful! Thanks!
  17. Mossey, thank you very much for the info. I'll try my luck with google and find the real ones. My bearing are the original when I picked it up.
  18. I have researched several video’s on how to repack the bearings on my Oliver and am looking forward to this task. I own a 2017 Elite II and with all the different numbers I’ve seen can someone tell me what Timken bearings and seals I will need for my model? Sorry if it has been posted but I get lost in the numbers. I figure I would replace them since they got over 60k on them.
  19. How does current fuel prices dictate your traveling plans for the summer? I fill up diesel about every 400 miles.

    Jack points

    I'm getting ready to do the same thing and was just wondering that a few days ago.
  21. Prepare to pay up if you're even lucky to find it. I think soon you'll need to be a millionaire to afford RVing!
  22. My grey tank is full @ 80% reading since purchasing my 2017 Oliver. I think a good test when getting a new Oliver is level the trailer and fill up the grey tank, watch when it starts trying to backup from the shower drain. Notice the reading you now know your grey tank levels. I also every once in a while will keep it over 50% and drive to next camping site hoping the drive will help clean the tank.
