  1. I replaced my gear. Be sure to look at the link in John’s first post that takes you to the RV upgrade store - before you disassemble. I over disassembled looking for the problem without properly researching and made the job twice as hard. It actually is pretty easy besides having to get on the roof.
  2. We have the same setup and it has worked well for us. But haven't tried it out at high elevation. But a/c probably not needed in the mountains.
  3. We had the identical issue with our AC pulling too many amps. Of course that was the last thing we checked - after rechecking the Easy Start install, checking both old Honda 2000,s with bad stators (that contributed to diagnosing the problem). Finally paid attention to the amp draw with both Honda’s in parallel. Took TT to local RV shop who communicated with Oliver and replaced the AC unit. After testing with two borrowed Honda 2000s, one at a time, at the Rally the issue was gone. I then purchased a Honda 2200 and added a propane kit to it. AC runs without a problem.
  4. We also just had the DC Step-up Converter stop working which supplies power to the WiFi Ranger. Now there is a WiFi Ranger Company Technical Service Bulletin regarding the issue. The Tech Bulletin will allow you to enter your WiFi Ranger ID, found on the unit, to determine if your Step-Up Converter needs to be replaced. It also indicates that it is possible to damage the WiFi ranger if the Converter overheats. I haven't installed my new converter yet to test if mine was "toasted". As you can see in the pic the V2 is much more robust. I plan on using heavy duty velco or 3M adhesive to secure it
  5. I also installed the Hutch Mt kit. Mounted the large regulator on their Extended Distance Bracket and I clamp that to the front storage basket using a large wood clamp. Propane hose plugs into the optional front propane outlet with Honda 2200 in basket. Will run a/c with Micro Air Easy Start at 650 Ft elevation, at less than max rpm. The regulator bracket can also set under the generator if you want to set the generator on the ground or use the generator with a portable bottle away from OTT, or hook up to natural gas at home as a backup generator. If purchasing be sure to get their RV-1/4-to-3
  6. Thought I would add today’s project while on the road. A suction cup, tent pole clothes line / towel rack. Easy to hang up for use - and put away when not needed. Tent pole from Acadamy Sports.
  7. It is possible you are having the same issue I had with our new Oliver. The detail is in the “Micro-Air” thread. But to summarize: At pickup and shakedown at the local campground my old Honda 2000 would not work with EasyStart installed by factory. It would startup fine and run several minutes and then the generator would shutdown. Returned to the factory the next morning. During the next three hours they checked the EasyStart install (it was correct) and reset the EasyStart. Still didn’t work. Scott Oliver brought his old Honda 2000 to factory but his generator also shutdown. Thought it may
  8. Thought I would add my completed curtain rod project. I used Overland's style so the rod would be a little higher to decrease the chance of another mark on my bald head. I drilled a 1/16 inch pilot hole, used a countersink to smooth hole to a little bigger that 5/32 inch. Then drilled a 5/32 inch hole in center of countersink. 5/32 inch is the suggested pilot hole for a # 10 machine screw. Sealed everything with 3M 4200. The machine screws worked perfect with no cracking of gel coat and everything pulled up tight.
  9. The Oliver is our third travel trailer. All of our camping has been in parks. I installed an Atwood tankless in our second trailer and it was just OK. The Truma is spectacular. Previously and without the Atwood I always showered in park’s facilities since I enjoy a real shower. Plus someone else had usually already used up the hot water in the trailer. All that said the cheapest method is the standard tank, use parks electric to heat water, and use parks showers as much as possible. But we really love being able to use our own shower with endless hot water.
  10. Have not really had it long enough to evaluate. Three months and all is good. Mopeka's FAQ answer: The sensor battery lasts over 1 year but may last longer or shorter depending on the outside temperature. The battery will generally last longer in warmer environments
  11. I am using the Mopeka product. Works well. I the monitor and sometimes the phone app. It may not be clear in your research but the monitor can also be set to read the 30# tanks now. Their original monitor only read 20# tanks accurately. http://mopeka.com/products/
  12. Where https://www.thehardwarehut.com/catalog-product.php?p_ref=297731 And what SUG-MC-JMP45 Sugatsune Sealed Counterplate - EACH (White) SUG-MC-JM45WT Sugatsune Sealed Magnetic Catch - EACH (White)
  13. OK - I will try the pic again [attachment file=Bath Door Magnet2.JPG]
  14. [attachment file=Bath Door Magnet.pdf] [attachment file=Bath Door Magnet2.JPG] We used the magnet method also. Ours are a little flatter. Used the 3M Adhesive/sealer Oliver used on trailer. Not near trailer right now to take pics but attached is where I ordered. Bath-Door-Magnet.pdf
  15. An update to my A/C, Honda generator issues in previous posts. We were at the 2018 Owners Ralley - and with Matteo from Micro-Air, we were able to test both my generator and Scott Olivers generator again with my new A/C unit. This time mine would still not work but Scott Olivers did. Also, after many months of testing by Matteo of another generator with the same issue as mine, Matteo was able to pinpoint the issue to a bad stator in the generator. So, the initial failures of the two generators at factory pickup were primarily caused by the A/C issue. Since Scott Olivers gen works fine after A/
