  1. Yes, they are standard 1/4" propane fittings. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BNX2H5S/ref=sspa_dk_detail_0?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07BNX2H5S&pd_rd_w=AfXoW&pf_rd_p=80559f3c-f83b-49c1-8a72-40f936e9df7a&pd_rd_wg=prJZi&pf_rd_r=SK5EBXF93H1JXMFSZC80&pd_rd_r=2fba62a2-5286-11e9-a5b3-871b43837d46
  2. Per Bill's (Topgun2) recommendation I just switched to Duragloss products this year. I just finished inside and out last week and the trailer looks great. Time will tell how it holds up. Mixed 4 parts 923 to 1 part 952 in a spray bottle and did the inside using a microfiber cloth. Only took 15 minutes for the inside. The outside 501 is just like waxing with any other wax except I did wipe everything down a second time just to get a polished look. So far I am very happy with it.

  3. I have to disagree again John. Being a contractor one of the most common accidents reported to OSHA are ladder accidents. Over my many years in the trade I have seen lots of serious ladder accidents many that were caused by cheap or overloaded ladders. I have a friend that fell 2' off the second step and shattered his foot and leg. One of my employees fell 20' on a extention ladder collapse and is disabled for life. Ladders are not the place I would suggest saving money. It only takes one time and you could be crippled for life.
  4. I carry this Telesteps. https://www.amazon.com/Telesteps-1400E-Compliant-Telescoping-Extension/dp/B003YJLFCQ/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_tab_ap_pd_title
  5. Ouray is a fun area. We spent a week there last June Million Dollar Highway Ouray, CO
  6. Looks like 19 wide X 16 3/8 deep.
  7. One of my pins that holds the bumper up lost the ball in the end and will not stay in place. Does anyone know what these pins are called or where they can be purchased? Thanks
  8. The Hull numbers contuined on. The VIN numbers reset.
  9. I had heard that but did not want to spread rumors. The plaques are very nice 3 color plaques and that's nice of Oliver to do. I also heard they will mail them to Oliver owners that do not attend the rally.
  10. That's not correct John. They know and gave us our VIN 1.5 months before it was done when our trailer just entered production. I wanted it to shop for insurance and they gave it to me. Most anyone can get it shortly after the trailer enters production.
  11. Anita can give it to you but Ken is correct about it having a plaque inside the door on the new models. We saw them on the new Oliver's when we were down there last week.
  12. The factory inverter and transfer switch is very nice even if you (like us) don't have factory solar. We use portable solar when needed. The inverter just makes things easy. We got caught in the middle of Wyoming once 140 miles from a cup of coffee with no inverter or perculator for the stove to make coffee. After that I said it would never happen again so added the inverter and 4 AGM batteries when we built the Ollie. Bought a $8.00 perculator pot for the stove too. ?
  13. I did the same thing. Financed the minumin I could and took their $1000 dollar discount and paid it off before the first payment was due when they sent me the loan information. Paid no interest and had my title in about 2 weeks. A lot of paperwork for them just to try to get me to finance it.
  14. With the lever in the center position it will draw from both tanks and you will run out of propane without any warning. One of the best camping gagets we have found in years is the Mopeka propane monitors that Steve mentioned that show the tank percentage on your phone.
  15. Congrats John & Susan on getting yours ordered. Now the fun begins!
  16. I have use the Anderson for over 4 years on 2 different trailers. It's a good system but you must take the time to understand how it works. Like Bill said it is the only system the will easily work on the Oliver. I have had very few times that were a problem hooking up or disconnecting. Like Bill also said just loosen or remove the chains if you do and drive somewhere level and have the vehicle straight and reinstall them. Like any weight distribution system you can use the hitch without the chains (or in a bar type system the bars) being installed. One thing about the Anderson I have noticed is I don't think it has the lift capacity a bar system has so it your vehicle is marginal it may not transfer enough weight. Because we already had the Anderson when we purchased our new truck I still use it even though it's a 3/4 ton truck. It makes the ride much smoother and takes out the porpoiseing when I go over bumps or bridges. I just don't run it very tight to try to transfer weight.
  17. To often we don't take the time to acknowledge a job well done. This week I dropped the trailer off at Oliver Service for several days of adding options and fixing a couple small items. I dropped it off on Tuesday morning after spending an 18 degree night sleeping behind the sales office (Thank you to Oliver for allowing this) and picked it up on Thursday. I was met Tuesday morning by both Jason and Richie to go over the list of things to be done. We went over each item since we were adding a few options (cell booster, WiFi booster, front basket, deck plate installed for access, purchasing Hypervent and purchasing several items for spares) that we did not have installed during the build. Also haveing 2 small items fixed that needed attention. Upon returning on Thurday Ritchie met me and went over the list of everything that was done to make sure nothing was missed then took me to the trailer to look over everything to make sure I was satisfied. I want to thank Jason, Ritchie, Justin, Bryan, and everyone else in service that I did not catch thier name that worked on or assisted with the trailer (including the young man that assisted with moving the trailer). Guys this is service done right! Your customer service and workmanship is something not found too often anymore. Its obvious these guys take pride in thier job. I am known to be kind of a picky person since I have been in a service business for 41 years. Oliver Service far exceeded my expectations and I want to say THANK YOU for a job well done!
  18. I installed the Hutch Mountion conversion kit. https://hutchmountain.com/products.html#!/Honda-EU2200i-Propane-Natural-Gas-Gasoline-Tri-Fuel-Conversion-Kit/p/101013131/category=0 It was very easy to install and only took about 30 minutes. It allows you to run on either propane or gasoline. Their service and support are great. I had a problem with one regulator and they walked me through diagnosing the problem and got a new requlator to me in 2 days. They are happy to spend time on the phone with you answering any questions. To run it off the camper quick connects you need to order it with quick connects between the 1st and 2nd stage regulators.
  19. I was told all the sites in E section are affected us being one of them. We had to move to the F section and they said if the renovations get done they will move us back. At least we will get our exercise walking to the pavilion now.
  20. Be careful if your coming to the rally this year. There will be lots of new 2500 HD's there this year and your wife may see your eyes wondering. :-) The new 2020's should be out this summer and they will have lots of new features including a 10 speed transmission. https://www.gmc.com/gmc-life/trucks/introducing-next-generation-sierra-heavy-duty
  21. It sure sounds like it is failing on ingition failure. The "check" light will come on after 3 failed attempts of ingition and then lock out the fridge. Turning it off and back on resets it so it can try again. It sounds like the fridge is doing what it is suppose to do when there is a problem. When you get someplace you can play with it, at this point I would open the lower vent and disconnect the trailer RV propane supply and pipe in a separate external tank and regulator and test it eliminating everything in the trailer piping and see what happens. You could have something weird happening like a problem with a hose coming apart on the inside or trash in the system somewhere.
  22. We do the same thing except rotate 90 degrees every 30 days.
  23. Edit: So you have no issue on propane with the dinosaur board except controlling the temp? Does the dinosaur board have a lock out after 3 tries of ignition failure which it should? If so that's weird since it was replaced but sounds like a control board issue. If the "Check" light is coming on it sounds like a ignition problem. The fridge will try ignition 3 times before it sends that fault and turns on the check light. Then it is locked out and has to be reset by turning it off then back on. It just sounds like a propane issue to me since they replaced it. I know you said you have replaced the regulator. Which requlator did you replace it with? I have had lots of problems over the years with the model that was supplied on our trailer that looks like this. https://www.amazon.com/Fairview-Propane-Automatic-Changover-Regulator/dp/B06ZY5W3R7/ref=mp_s_a_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1550929872&sr=8-14&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=rv+regulator A few campers ago I started replacing them with this one and have not had a problem with them. https://www.amazon.com/MARSH-EXCEL-MEGR253-Change-Regulator/dp/B00KPR9Q30/ref=mp_s_a_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1550929872&sr=8-5&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=rv+regulator&dpPl=1&dpID=41R8vvkYz%2BL&ref=plSrch The only other thing I would try is to replace the thermocouple that senses the flame. I know it's new but it just sounds like you are losing the flame or not sensing the flame and causing a fault that way. I'm sure after all this time you have tried a differant propane tank and propane supplier.
  24. I have been running 60 psi since pick up. We now have a little over 10,000 miles and most of them have been very long trips. Never had a problem with tire vibration but I did rebalanced all the tires when I installed the Dill TPMS shortly after delivery. 60 PSI has felt good to me except in the New England area where the roads are full of potholes. I thought about lowering the pressure on that trip but figured it would be harder on the sidewalls so just slowed down and played pothole dodge. Pennsylvania, NY, and Massachusetts have the worst roads we have ever been on and I will take the long way around through Vermont if we ever go that way again to avoid them. I may try 55 psi this year and see if the tires run any hotter on my TPMS.
  25. Check the outside shower. If nothing there sounds like a possible leak if you have not hook to city water before.
