  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. Once a year for a trailer that sits outside all the time sounds appropriate.

    How long for one that is indoors when not on the road? My trailer is three years old and I have never seen any issues with the factory sealant.

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. So I took John’s advice, bought the REJEX. Starting in small areas, as I am a one-armed bandit for the next 6 weeks. It does not apply as visually clean as the Meguiar’s I use on my vehicles, but it seems to look as good. I hope the long lasting claims are valid. However, the south bound lower end of #359 looks pretty darn nice. Now for the other 90%.


    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.

  9. 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.



    That’s what my friends and family are saying about anyone (like me) who buys an Ollie instead of some cheaper trailer. ?


    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.
