  1. FrankC started a topic in May 2021 re missing 'wheel center trim caps'. He had lost one & wanted to know how to replace it. The post did not provide a definitive answer as the one potential item from Amazon is now unavailable. The post segued into grease caps. So, we needed 2 caps for our camper. As the Forum did not provide an up to date answer [there may very well be an answer but I did not locate] I did various Google searches & finally called Dexter. She had no idea what I was talking about. 🙂 I then opened a Service Ticket. A couple of hours later, Rider from the service center called. Oliver refer to this cap as a 'center cap' & they place a sticker on it. I had no idea that black & silver swish-y looking thing was a sticker! I suggested to Rider that the design be changed. Rider & I agreed that no one would be asking him for his opinion. 🙂 The cylinder protruding from the axle & in which the cap will be placed is called a hub cap. Learn something new everyday. My purpose in creating this topic is to let people know what Oliver calls this thing & where & how to get. See below photos. Center Cap Contact Oliver & they will send you what you need/want. I ordered 4 & was charged $38.60, includes shipping.
  2. Seadawg: thank you for info re Oct. After making the original post, I talked with Steve & he too thought this would be a better time to go. Nancy K & Mattnan,I will definitely check these out! ty
  3. Our grandson attends Florida Gulf Coast University in Estero, Fl [the Naples/Fort Myers area] & we would like to visit him. Of course, we want to go in the Jan/Feb time frame because: 1) March is spring break at his school; 2) April - Sept, Oct? way too hot. I have done a quick search and nothing has come back. O, & again of course, we do not want to spend an arm & a leg. Maybe we should go in the Fall? I have not checked dates for this time period. Any thoughts, suggestions?? Thank you!! Florida sounds especially nice right now as we are currently at the Lewis and Clark State Park in Onawa, IA. It is overcast & 50ish & no sign of Spring. brrr~~~ Bonus fun fact from Wikipedia re Onawa: "The city is known for having the widest main street in the continental United States"
  4. John, 1st, it was not coir; it was peat moss. I spoke, or wrote, too quickly. Steve uses peat because he knows where it is in his shop & I use coir because I bought it especially for the camper & Steve has obviously forgotten. 🙂 I do not know if peat could be sucked thru the fan?? We'll see what happens within the next several weeks as we leave on Monday for an extended trip. 2nd: thank you for your response. I checked the fan; it is there & it works. I removed the tube & soaked it in warm soapy water. I used a dryer brush to get inside & scrub. It does not look like new but a heck of a lot better. Gwenne Causey NC
  5. Part of Annual Maintenance is to Check Tire PSI. We have TPMS on our tires. At last year's Maintenance service, per the invoice the PSI was not checked due to our TPMS. The TPMS keeps track of PSI. We can remove the TPMS upon arrival at the service center. If you remove your TPMS, how do you keep track of each sensor to its tire. What do people do? I know many have TPMS. I would like Oliver to be able to check the PSI as we believe one tire may be low. Maybe I am being overly concerned about something of little consequence. ty
  6. Is there a way to clean the inside of the vent hose? Mine has coir particles. Or maybe it's ok? ty
  7. Thank you everyone for the replies. I have gotten an AllStays account, ordered recommended parts & have Steve reviewing Water Filter info. I think we're good to go on finding water. I look forward to trying boondocking to see how we do. We will not be staying at any one place for longer than 4 nights. So, we will be fine. Although we have had our camper for nearly 5 years we are still new at this game.
  8. I have sent the Water Filters link to Steve, better half, to read for comprehension. I do the initial investigation & then let him take over. 🙂
  9. I have just ordered the wrench water key & we have the water bandit. Thank you VERY much for this info.
  10. Steve & I will be out on our 2nd out west trip this spring. Our 1st, was to Big Bend. On that trip we stayed in state parks which had water & electricity. This time we are headed to Glacier, from NC. I have a reservation at Fish Creek for June 5 - 9. I do realize that we could run into cold weather. We will be prepared for that. As we go further west state parks do not have water or electricity. Electricity is no problem as we have solar; we have a compost toilet & I have the RV Dump Site app. What I am wondering is, where do people get water? I have also planned on a couple of dispersed nights & will need water for these. Also, so many of you express caution over campsite water. Do you purchase water as you need it? Our last couple of trips we have brought water from home using a 4-gallon container & an 8-gallon wheeled container. But these ain't gonna hold us for 3000+ miles, one way. 🙂 Right now my thought is to find water for showers & washing dishes & use purchased water for drinking. Is this what people do? But, again, we have to find a place to fill up. Thank you. I really enjoy the Forum. I get the daily notification email & read any post that intrigues me. The information & humor are priceless.
  11. Our valve does not move in & out smoothly; it is a bit difficult to manipulate it. I thought WD-40 sprayed on the metal rod would fix it. Steve said 'no', that it's the closey thingy. (my description, not his.) Anyone have an idea on how to rectify or is this the way the valvey thingy works. Thx
  12. Overland, what pray-tell are you showing? The bumped up bumper or the non-descriptive to me little round sticker or????
  13. When & why do you guys turn off the Nature's Head fan? Thx
  14. A favorite gizmo?? I love gizmo's & can always get distracted by anything with 'gizmo' in the title. I do like our trash holder. It holds a plastic bag by pulling down the black things. I have it in the closet, on the left, with a plastic bag holder above it. I have a collapsible kettle & mini coffee bean grinder, for pour-over coffee.
  15. I got one of these when we first bought our truck. My sisters, mother & I were on a girls weekend. My mother could not step up into the truck. We even pushed her from her butt; no luck. I went to Target & got one of these. Now we use to reach DEF. :)))
  16. Thanks re this fan. At O2 it is out of stock; at Amazon I can get for a higher cost && $10. shipping. Instead I have gone with this fan as it folds for storage. I have appreciated the input from everyone.
  17. I hear ya on that blue -- what an atrocious shade of blue. I'd have to rethink the whole interior design concept for inside the Clam. 🤣
  18. Anyone have a suggestion for a table fan? We are going out the 1st of August & I'm kinda thinkin we may want one, esp for the Clam. Thx
  19. Love the Maine outline &&& the Lobster 🦞🦞🦞. How fun!
  20. We live in Greensboro with our 2017 (#224) Oliver. We tow it with a 2017 GMC Sierra 2500 Diesel. All is well with us. :)) We have put about 10k miles on Oliver & truck. Very enjoyable.
  21. Well, I will throw my two cents into the mix. I have the following item. It is in the closet positioned above the black pipe, on the left. As some of have noted, the suction cups may not last forever. And, these have not. I now hang the 'holder' from 2 Command hooks. The 'holder' is removable from the suction cups. Above this holder, I have a hanging bag hanging from a suction cup hook; a Command hook is at the ready for when the suction cup hook decides to give up the ghost. Hum ~~~ just now noting that both of the items are 'currently unavailable'. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QV55Z44/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  22. Gorgeous!! campsite & lake. Do/did you have mosquitoes &/or flies? We were at the Penobscot Outdoor Center in late June last year & were eaten alive by mosquitoes. We did do some fantastic hiking, tho. :))
  23. topgun2 & Overland ---- LOL, LOL.
  24. Another CalMark cover question --- can you run the Maxxfan with the cover over the trailer? We run our fan with the bathroom window open 24/7 to keep some air moving around inside. If you are unable to run the fan, how is the air inside the trailer after a period of time? This is not actually an owners question; we are 'to be' owners, amybe. 🙂 Thank you.
