  1. I am also looking to replace my furrion tv as it’s starting to have the picture brightness continuously going from bright to a dim bright. I see that the 2020 Oliver now go with the Jenson brand. So first question Furrion or Jenson. Now I see that Furrion has a 32 inch 12 volt with a sound bar incorporated and I was thinking of getting it but because of the size it will not be able to rise up to secure it while traveling. Any thoughts if I just kept it down while traveling ‘ BHNCB. you still happy with the transit?
  2. Driving from Hohenwald an hour away on an interstate doing 70 miles an hour I hit a lip on the road and my f150 showed a “electric malfunction “. I thought that my 7 pin might have come out but I looked back and the yellow lights on the side of the Ollie were on. So I continued on and suddenly a Good Samaritan flagged me and told me there was smoke coming out from the back of trailer. I pulled off and sure enough there was smoke coming from under rear tires. The tires looked good and could not see where the smoke was coming from. I took out my infrared temperature gauge and it showed that the
  3. Mossemi; my air conditioner never worked with one generator. Only when I connected two in parallel did it work. The Easy start was installed in Hohenwald
  4. I mentioned in another post an issue I had with the Easy Start . Now I have to go to Hohenwald next week to have my Easy Start checked out cause apparently when installed on my original air conditioner it wasn’t installed properly and it shorted. How do I know? Because my original air conditioner after one year of use had to be replaced because of a bad compressor and during the rally this year, I had it replaced and when I asked the tech to move the Easy Start to the new unit , we found out it was shorted and didn’t work. This was why I bought two generators because with one, the air conditio
  5. I bought two and they work beautifully .

  6. ScubaRX since I was the one who,posted having the black water episode I now understand how the sewer water came out the shower drain. With your explication can I ask if there is now a way to sanitize the sewer water that went up the black pipe vent ?
  7. There is a couple named Mike and Jeniffer Lakeland who have an extensive amount of information on RVing. They live in Michigan and their first ebook they just did was on the Upper Peninsula. I highly recommend you take a look at the website. website is. https://rvlifestyle.myshopify.com/a/downloads/-/4972b57824ad17df/2f59a2615f716e72
  8. Amazing. Beautiful and best of all you not need to remove the bike rack to access the spare tire, which you need to do with the Oliver’s bike rack. I had the long Oliver bike rack and changed it to their newer model but this is 100 times better. i want one ☝️
  9. On that same subject, how long should the 12 volt light bulbs last. I have the one in the bathroom storage completely out and the one on the street side storage next to the pantry emitting a very low light. Not totally out. All others are fine
  10. In the latest issue of FMCA there was an article about who they have teamed up with to offer lithium batteries. Here is the press release FMCA RV Club Introduces New Battery Benefit For Members Cincinnati, Ohio — FMCA, an international association for RV owners, has announced a new partnership with Briter Products, creator and contract manufacturer of Ion-Ready© lithium-iron-phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries designed specifically for RV use. Lithium-iron-phosphate batteries have various advantages over conventional lead-acid batteries used in RVs. LiFePO4 batteries have twice the power
  11. John, I continue to admire your mods and the preciseness of the build with pictures included. I can’t even put a nail in a piece of wood without bending it! But with your mods I can hire a good handyman an have it done! Thanks
  12. I’m in the Reed camp. The seal keeps out the water when it’s raining and let’s me be out of the trailer under the awning. As for the junk that collects up there, I once a month go up with a water pressure wand clean it all up.
  13. George, did you ever look at the extended warranty issue. I was just looking at the Keep your Dream vblog and they were talking about looking into that. So I looked on the Oliver forum and saw that you wee questioning about it
  14. Ok I promised an update on my Truma Instant hot water heater. First I want to acknowledge that Jason was instrumental in helping me get this issue resolved. Without his involvement i probably would still be fighting windmills. First, Oliver does I’m fact fill out the paperwork for the extended one more year of warranty so it’s covered for two years I only had mine at the time 14 month and thought I was out of warranty. ‘I explained to Jason that on the Truma official YouTube there was an video that explained the proper winterizing procedure and in fact it was explained by a Truma en
  15. I just had my Oliver II professionally weighed at the FMCA rv convention in Perry , Georgia. According to the trailer weight loaded for travel which in my case is with empty gray and black tanks the ideal tire pressure should be 50 psi. The Michelin tire rep at the convention also confirmed that as a good number.
  16. I woke up in the middle of the night and went to YouTube to see if there were any videos on winterizing the Truma hot water heater and as SeaDawg mentions in his comments I found the Truma video wand it doesn’t mention anything about removing and storing the filter during winterizing. It just states to clean the wire mesh and check the o rings. So I went back to the fricking manual on the University website to now read about the warranty. Well it states that the unit is guaranteed for one year, BUT if in a two month period from purchase if you register the unit you get an extra one year. So g
  17. I can’t post the screen shots but if you o to the Oliver University page you can what I’m talking about. It looks as somebody added the last step in the “winterizing “ version but it’s not in the “oficial “ manual. Since I was not given physical manuals when I got my Oliver because I was told they where all online, now I have an issue which is : which manual is the right one.....
  18. Overland, you are right. The “manual” on the University page Only has 4 and 9 steps in winterizing the Truma water heater. But there is another separate instruction on the University website that is called “ winterizing the truma water heater “. That version has the added step that says to not put the filter back in. see pictures
  19. Well folks, here is a story that i hope you all learn.... I watched the winterization video on the Oliver University probably 5 times to make sure that i understood the instructions. I proceeded to follow them to the T. But there was a very small step that the video didn't mention; that is that on the Truma Instant water heater when you pull down the yellow tab to drain the water completely and inspect the water filter, YOU MUST NOT PUT THE FILTER BACK IN... you need to keep it out for the winter. By the way the Truma manual which you must access on the Oliver University website, step
  20. Overland Great advise thanks for giving an easy way to access the different tools. I especially liked the divider for the center console on the f150. Mine is now just a pole of junk and I don’t even know what’s in there. Now I will have it better organized.
  21. Thanks to all who posted. I did put it back to auto and it went back to normal operation ??
