  1. I got a 2006 F250 6.0 PSD and love the extra room the 8' bed offers. I averaged 13.5 mph from AL to AZ traveling 65-70. I do use a SCT tuner mainly for reading gages. I keep my EGTs under 1200 no matter what. Each tank of diesel gets cetane added. https://k-mansparts.com/motorcraft-diesel-cetane-booster-performance-improver-pm-22-a-detail.htm Every oil change I add Archoil friction modifier. https://archoil.powerstrokehelp.com/products/archoil-ar9100-friction-modifier
  2. I noticed a lot of cold air seems to infiltrate near the kitchen sink pipes and drawers. Has anyone installed additional insulation around the kitchen pipes and if so, how, and what did you use? The inside shell was pretty consistent at 70 and the kitchen pipes 49... Huge difference!
  3. In fact yesterday we set an all time high of 101 degrees.
  4. John here in Alabama once a year is much needed. Then again I got Ollie in the drive under the sun. Working on moving out west this winter. I sure did enjoy camping up north this summer cause the heat this year in my town was insane.
  5. Great advise Bill... I did exactly that and even resealed the wheel wheels. I noticed my caulking this year is much better then last.
  6. I think the problem is the regular house outlet. You need 30 amp to run heat pump. If you have a generator I would see if it works. My Honda 2000i runs the systems fine.
  7. Well completed that much needed task of resealing my Ollie. The prep work is a little pita but necessary. Jason from the plant told me this task needs to be done once a year. If you haven't checked out your caulk I suggest getting on the roof and check it out.

    Jack points

    Sorry for the late reply. For some reason I kept having trouble opening the thread. I think I'll just play it safe and just raise one side at a time when I change out the tires. I just needed to ensure exactly the jack points. You guys rock! tHank you! George

    Thank you for clarifying this for me. I thought it was best to ask since I was not certain.
  10. Greetings folks, I've yet been able to find exactly the jack points on my eliteII. Could someone please attach a photo of where I need to jack up my Oliver properly? I'm getting close to needing new tires and so I want to jack up the trailer and take my tires off and take them to a tire shop for remounting. Thank you!
  11. I had the exact problem with mine. What I did to correct this issue was went through the starting procedure again and now using the Honda 2000i it works like a charm. It took a good while before even thinking about the start up procedure. If you have not tried that I would give it a shot. Using one 2000 w gen works well with the Honda on eco mode, I just get the impression the thing is working hard.
  12. My cheap telescopic ladder needs a crowbar to extend some of the rungs. One day I was cleaning the solar panels and the rung was not locked into place. I dropped like a rock and tore off the porch light. Funny thing is I checked or so I thought I did ensure it was locked... Wrong!
  13. Oh CRAP, I just spent the last 3 days shinning Ollie up. Seeing your image Overland makes me cringe.
  14. I just finished today using REJEX and applied it while the sun was shinning. While applying it was somewhat difficult to see where I put it and where I did not. After waiting the 15-20 minutes I uses a microfiber cloth and I must say I'm impressed. I plan on putting another coat on some.
  15. I average about 80 amh per night. Oliver needs to offer a BMS as an upgrade for those that enjoy off grid camping. This will tell you in real time what is going on.
  16. Just went and checked the drawl of the inverter with no other drawl. Normally during boondocking I'll have the inverter on all day running a laptop and other little things and still get 100% state of charge by 2-3pm in full sunshine. Once again unless you have a way of monitoring your batteries you have not a clue.
  17. I like the one Bill posted better then what I got.
  18. This is the cheap cap I use. I need to repaint it because I don't like the blue.
  19. Mine does the same thing when water gets in the tow connection. I now have a cap I put on it and does not happen anymore.
  20. Cheap often costs more and most people will save a nickel to lose a dollar. Oliver is about quality. I would never finance one personally, but my mindset differs from many.
  21. I'm happy with the Tri-Metric and think Oliver should offer a monitoring system as a upgrade.
  22. Spending that much hard earned cash on a new vehicle like this is crazy unless you have a lot of disposable cash. I'm amazed how people take out basically a house mortgage for a vehicle.
  23. I think of battery management being a very important aspect especially when camping off the grid. This link explains the importance of a good battery monitoring system. Manyt have ways of getting by with out them, but if you want to understand exactly what is going on a battery monitor is the best way. http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/battery-monitoring/#post-11798
  24. Oliver is going to take care of this window issue and I must say I'm very impressed with their level of professionalism in helping us. They truly are a company above the rest. Sorry for my ranting and displaying my frustration publicly on this forum.
  25. EXACTLY! I would have never known how bad it truly is unless I took off the window blind. Now it reveals the underlying issue. This breaks my heart especially having been at the plant telling them of this leak.
