  1. I LOVE the curtain idea on the front door and bathroom! Did the command strip hooks stick to the textured surface of the front door on its own or did you have to add some adhesive? Also, would I be correct in assuming you cut down the curtains from a regular curtain or shower curtain? ~Angela
  2. Where does one obtain said button guard (and the bracket for that matter)? The fridge looks great! ~Angela
  3. csevel and Landrover: Such an awesome mod and both look great! The thought of cutting into Ollie makes me so nervous but now am considering this as it makes so much sense. Thank you for the inspiration! ~Angela
  4. David, Thank you so much for this! We checked ours, Hull#268, and it looks like yours. I was wondering the exact same thing, whether that was a washer or part of the terminal and was going to contact Matt about it. I now know that ours is fine. You have settled my mind. This is why I love this forum. Thanks again! Angela
  5. Our information binder says that we are equipped with the Dometic 310 porcelain toilet.
  6. We now have an appt at Oliver to have it evaluated. Jason actually called me saying he had been notified that we were having a problem so someone here passed it along to him. Thank you to whoever that was. This forum is fantastic!!! We’ve got some other things to be checked out so figured we make a trip back to the Mothership ? will keep you posted. Thank you to everyone!! Angela
  7. we were attached to city water. Water pump was not on. At the backside valve, there is no constant dripping. The only way I knew that it was coming from that underside “cutout/window” was that I had my head down there when a thin stream of water was released. It didn’t spray, the small amount of water was just released from the valve area almost as if a tiny cup were filling and then tipped over. It made a dollop of water about the size of a quarter and then just stopped. Not more dripping. We timed between “dollops” and it was about 2 min. Inside the bowl there is a slow constant stream from 2 holes at about the 1:00 and 7:00 positions. You can see a slight pulsation at the water edge as the bowl slowly fills.
  8. not yet. I jiggled on the connector and it didn’t feel loose. For the rest of the trip ( just an overnight) we turned off the inlet valve and only turned it on to flush. Once we got back I had to go back to work. We’re gonna check with Oliver as we found some other things that need to be addressed. The leak is strsnge though because it’s not a steady stream or even a drip. It’s more of a timed pulse of water that comes out approx every 2 min. Also the streams of water from the 2 holes in the bowel also have a slight pulse pattern to them. It’s just odd. Angela
  9. thanks John! We actually drain our water heater and take out the filter whenever we are storing/not using the trailer. We had a defective collar around the removable filter that we got replaced under warranty and after taking with Truma the rep said that they recommend taking the removable filter out definitely if it was going to be cold and then again when not in use. So we have just made this a part of our breakdown list. -Angela
  10. When you all are blowing the waterlines, I know that the water heater should be bypassed, but I wouldn't need to adjust any of the other valves if I am not sucking in antifreeze, correct? We have only used our city water line so far so my thought was to keep all valves as they are (except closing of the Truma) and then blowing air into the city water connection. Thanks, Angela
  11. Very exciting!!! Our Ollie made its home here in OK as of October. Welcome!!!! - Angela
  12. We didn’t use antifreeze, but all lines were cleared (including the water heater) and it was stored inside an enclosed building. The ambient temp in the building didn’t get below freezing.
  13. Just craned my head behind the toilet and see that there is a square opening on the underside of the solid piece that projects from the back base. Approx every 2 min there is a squirt of water. The pic is oriented with my phone on the floor looking up at the just out piece.
  14. This is our second trip. We are experiencing leaking water from the base of the toilet around the back of the toilet. Also inside the toilet bowl, 2 of the water holes continue to leak water after flushing. We had no trouble in our pick up trip in October. Anyone have any thoughts?
  15. You are absolutely correct that it is a personal decision. I was restating what the Truma rep said to me. -Angela
  16. I have personally spoken with the Truma factory about winter camping and was told that as long as the water heater is on with propane running, it is protected from freezing down to -4F. I was also told that for winterizing (having the propane off in freezing temps) if the tank is drained and you remove the water cartridge that it is protected from damage. This method can also be used if you are planning on towing through freezing temps since your propane should be off while towing. -Angela
  17. One downside so far of the Atwood A/C is that the fan runs constantly. There is a fix that requires the installation of a relay. The Oliver team does not do this modification. They install the unit per the strict instructions. We were informed that we will need to find a certified service facility to do it for us. Operation-wise, it worked great and was so quiet. Could barely hear it running standing next to the trailer. -Angela
  18. We stayed at the Natchez Trace RV park on the recommendation from Ritchie (one of the gentlemen who did our orientation) and really enjoyed it. We parked by the lake. Full hook ups. We camped for 2 days in October. -Angela
  19. Maybe I’ve been gone too long from the forum. How do I get on the list for the newsletter? -Angela
  20. Congrats!!! We have the same TV, just a tad older (2006), and it pulled our LE2 effortlessly. Enjoy!! -Angela
  21. We recently got this. works great. Heininger 4040 HitchMate TireStep https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002Z9KE0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_qWD.zbS1XC7CC -Angela
  22. Congratulations!!! We picked ours up at the beginning of October and love it! -Angela
  23. What a wonderful tribute! And how awesome to be able to travel with your sister.. My mom’s diagnosis of metastatic cancer this year made my husband and I do a double take and realize everything we’ve been putting off. We stopped talking about getting an Ollie and jumped in! Cheers on being a survivor!! So wonderful! Will look for you on the road! Happy trails!!!!! -Angela
  24. Congrats!!! Love the ladybug. If I might ask, is there a story behind it? -Angela
