  1. We purchased the Yamaha 2400 Inverter Generator for our 2017 Oliver Elite II, it works great with power to spare. The only down side is it's weight but will put up with the additional weight as it is an outstanding generator.
  2. My (Chris) favorite is a secluded boat launch on the Tsirku River about 30 miles outside of Haines, AK. It is primarily used by folks who have homes on Chilkat Lake that are only accessible by boat. https://maps.app.goo.gl/qXKAupauU1tLi9N2A
  3. Congratulations & welcome! We LOVE Harvest Hosts! The only place where we have stayed on your projected route is Paw Paw's Pecans in Atkins, Arkansas. It's not too far south of I-40. Another great option for one-nighters is Cracker Barrel, especially after an unusually long drive day & cooking is the last thing you want to do.
  4. Just more of this nonsense here.
  5. Too funny! Baxter State Park was the inspiration for our boy's name. I must warn you, when you are screaming his name (because he & his sister are playing tug-of-war with a possum) it sounds like you are saying something quite inappropriate.
  6. Doggy preparedness: 1. A dog first aid kit & book. 2. Skip getting a pretty rug for inside the door. Get two turf-like/shoe-scraper ones, one for outside & one for inside. Grass & sand will still get beyond them, but not as much. 3. Cordless stick vacuum. You don't want the little short ones because the exhaust sends into orbit what you're trying to suck up. 4. A broom with a small head. I found a great one at the dollar store. 5. These towels because, like our dogs, terry cloth never dries. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RSQH0N4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apap_nShgB
  7. We have no experience camping in the southwest, yet. Only 2 cents I can add is to suggest the River View RV Resort that is right across the river from Natchez, MS in Vidalia, LA. We were there a couple weeks ago because hubs wanted to stay somewhere with a view of the Mississippi. The place is spotless, sites are spacious, and the rates were amazingly low. I must admit it was fun to watch the barges go by. https://www.riverviewrvpark.com/ If you go, request site #2.
  8. Fast forward to 2020... Since I am unable to find other posts about this issue, I'm curious if anyone else has had windows fail. We just had our street side/aft window replaced during our Ollie's annual checkup. Unfortunately, we are out of warranty so that added $400 to the bill. Now, on the road, we've noticed the other street side window has failed. What are we doing wrong? Any suggestions? (While in storage, streetside faces east & Refectix in all windows.) Thanks, Chris
  9. A couple weeks ago, while at a Harvest Host in Atkins, AR (Paw Paw's Pecans-Great place!) we met a couple from FL who were moving to Wichita, KS to be centrally located for traveling. I'm fairly sure I failed to disguise the "are you crazy!?" look on my face. (The aeronautical industry took my brother there 40+ years ago. He agrees. 🤓)
  10. We were in Hohenwald for service Oct 4-7. The 1st night we camped in the sales office parking lot. They have several power pedestals to use. There were three other campers there with us & one was a couple scheduled for a factory tour. While Oliver had our Ollie, we stayed in Linden at the Commodore Hotel. It is an historic building on the main drag. The room/bldg needs some love but was clean. The Commodore allows pets & a continental breakfast is included. The Meriwether Lewis campground was still closed.
  11. It's the middle of the night & Fido needs to go out. You want to be able to grab a flashlight without the need to turn on a light. This Command Broom Holder is the answer. Plus, it stays put when rolling down the road. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01G1Y42H0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_-YJJFb4833X8E
  12. And, the greatest invention since the wheel (almost), REUSABLE ZIP TIES! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XJC8L37/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_fab_Jt6EFbWBXS8Z6
  13. Three owners here for service & one potential buyer enjoying a beautiful evening in the Oliver parking lot.
  14. Aha! Thank you both. I was clicking on my name. BTW, having a wonderful time at the non-Rally & wish you were here!
  15. Can signatures only be updated via a pc? I can't find the edit signature option on my account page on my android phone. Thx! Chris
  16. We tried that boondocking in Colorado. The darn thing turned on & off all night long but I never saw anything. Maybe it worked but I couldn't sleep & didn't put it out anymore. 🙈 Another good place to put it is behind your steps. Handy if you leave during the day & return after dark but failed to turn on courtesy lights. The key is to remember it when you leave. We only have two now. Oops.
  17. Great topic! We love these little motion detection lights. No need to turn on a light when you get up in middle of night. You get three for $29. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002FCGI8Y?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
  18. Mary Rutherford posted this on Facebook an hour ago: Good evening everyone. I was wondering if anyone would like to meet 9:30 am tomorrow morning at the buckeye pavilion. Bring your coffee and chair’s for a little southern Oliver hospitality. Hopefully the sun will shine tomorrow.
  19. We're in F57 F54 = Mike & Krunch F62 = Susie & John DeLozier
  20. Enjoy your time at the beach; however, it's just not the same without you at Lake Guntersville. Duke & Chris
  21. Hi Lexi, thank you to you & Oliver! As a quasi event planner in a previous life, I learned to capitalize on someone else's legwork. My suggestion is to find out where other RV groups hold their rallies & go from there. We're heading west next year & hope we can work this into our itinerary!!! Chris
