  1. Had some nice weather this last weekend and cleaned out the window tracks of our beloved Oliver. The seals seem to have shrunk more to the point where I am replacing them with the Pellandent H109-376 seals. Thanks to all the previous posters for the info and tips. BTW, I am getting all BLACK seals.
  2. I was patiently waiting for a fellow camper to finish his dumping operation and watched in amazement as he let his slinky slip and disappear into the campground sewer. He shrugged and left. Stuff happens I guess.
  3. When I was flying a club Cessna, I used Adolph's meat tenderizer on the leading edge to remove stubborn bugs. The Enzymes seem to work and I would use a Starlite product after to seal the surface. That was a few years ago and there must be better products available as previous posters have suggested.
  4. Just finished winterizing and it always makes me kind of sad that Winter is about. I now look forward to Spring and the next camping season. BTW, after 5 + years, the anode was just a wire. I have a new one (Aluminum) to install when I sanitize next year. What is the best anode?
  5. Roguebooks, I have pretty much the same system you have. My Ollie is a year older, but the Lifelines are still going strong (13.8 V under solar float). I have not had any major short or electrical malfunction though. It has been stored outside since we brought her home and the sun has done the maintenance. I agree with Back of Beyond that the simple approach may give you the best option if you find that your Lifelines are done. As you can imagine, I am watching this closely and appreciate your sharing this. Like you, We hope to use our LE1 for at least another 5-6 years. Best of luck,
  6. How timely! Our CO alarm is just starting to "act up". Thanks for your well documented post.
  7. Would hauling it on the back bumper reduce tailgating? Honestly, We have never needed one either.
  8. We really enjoyed the rail trip across Canada from Toronto to Vancouver via VIA and the Rocky Mountaineer. The food and camaraderie were wonderful not to mention the scenery. Saskatchewan was immense and like another planet . I want to go back with the Oliver. Cheers
  9. On a cost per foot basis, it is the more expensive of the 2 trailers. I do wonder what changes they are contemplating. As Seadawg stated, we love our LE1 just the way it is.
  10. I had to replace the wiring harness on my (no longer owned) 2002 Tacoma due to rodent damage. My comprehensive insurance covered it. I then had to replace the fuel lines on my wife's Corolla also due to rodent damage. I now enlist traps and plastic snakes and it seems to be effective. I have fire extinguishers everywhere. Glad to hear OP was on his toes during that event.
  11. thirddoor, It is indeed suprising! After 4 years, I recently found rain water inside puddled at the rear curbside area. I checked the caulking around the rear emergency window and it seemed to be intact, but I over-coated it with a handy white caulk to see if it had any effect. My question is what the recommended caulk is for this and the overhead "OLIVER" sign area? BTW, I did just order 2 10' rolls of EZE RV gutter that I will apply next summer when it is warm.
  12. Carl, We installed a 3 inch memory foam topper in our LE1 and love it. I remember buying a rectangular shape that provided the width and length, and then just unzipped the cover to trim the foam using the outside cushions to trace the radii on the 2 aft ends. Then we re-zipped it and it fits snug. I can not remember where we purchased it, but it came compressed in a small package and required some time to expand. We leave our bed made and have seldom converted back to the dinning table. Cheers,
  13. Mike, We have a 2017 LE1 and I have been running the OEM Michelins at 60 psig with TPMS temp readings that are very acceptable. The trailer handles very well and evidently smoothly enough where there is no mess inside to greet us when we enter after a long drive. Also, I did install the Dexter shackle kit which is a major improvement and now STD equipment I believe.. John is correct about the TPMS being a critical safety device and I second his recommendation. Terry
