  1. Hi Beyond The dry weight of the current LE II is listed at 4900 lbs on the Oliver website. I just looked through my 2017 manual but couldn’t find the unloaded dry weight of my trailer. I travel with the fresh water tank low and carry some of my gear and supplies in the back of the SUV, which usually has 2 adults and one ~70 lb dog. I had the Cayenne on a scale at a waste disposal site once. With me onboard and nearly a full tank of gas but no cargo the weight was 5.040 lbs. I have the Anderson hitch. I’ve often wondered how effective it is but have never towed without it.
  2. Here’s another data point: 2012 Porsche Cayenne V6 gas, 300 hp and the same number for torque, towing capacity 7700 lbs. LE II loaded to approximately 5500 lbs; trailer tire pressure ~60 psi. I’ve towed my 2017 LEII approximately 28,000 miles which included three trips to Oregon from Boston. I generally cruise near 70 mph. Ave 13 mpg.
  3. I just left Joseph yesterday after spending a couple of nights at the Walawa Lake State Park campground. The weather didn’t exactly cooperate but I drove up to Hell’s Canyon Overlook. Beautiful spot and there were a few breaks in the clouds but no panorama views suitable for framing. On the way there, at Pendleton Mills, Pendleton, Oregon, I saw this in the parking lot. Florida plates. Didn’t see the owners.
  4. Spotted at the back of long term parking in Oakridge, Oregon, just prior to the start of the Cycle Oregon Classic ride (CycleOregon.com). ........ A classy, high quality, well built RV ...... parked next to an Airstream.
  5. I just installed mine an hour ago. Thanks for this suggestion.
  6. Sherry hit the ‘ole nail on the head (and probably should have hit my head with the hammer). The original outlet was faulty. The replacement (Leviton) was good. The replacer was faulty. Line and Load are arranged differently by these two manufacturers, as shown in the picture above. Note that the green ground terminals are arranged in the same relative position, which can lead to further confusion. Sherry, I would drink a toast in your honor but, as you know, they don’t allow alcohol at Ft DeSoto Park. Thank you to all who attempted to help through this threa
  7. Thanks for the suggestion, Mike and Carol. I systematically went through all connections that I could view and reach, notably the bus bar and fuse box. I couldn’t find anything loose or amiss. Unfortunately the problem persists. We’re currently at Ft DeSoto Park near St Petersburg, FL, for a two week stay. It’s a place that should have been on the top ten RV parks to visit in Florida, beautiful with spacious sites. Lots of passers by are impressed with the Oliver and stop to chat. So far no one has had a solution for this electrical issue.
  8. No luck after changing the GFCI. I used the better module that HD had in stock, the Leviton GFCI model GFNT1-RW, 15A-125V. The original unit has two line inputs (4 wires, 2 black, 2 white), and 1 load output (2 wires, 1 black wire, 1 white wire). There is also a bare copper ground wire attached to the green terminal on the bottom of the unit. I wired the new unit precisely the way the original unit was wired. This outlet had worked fine for the 1 3/4 years that I’ve had the trailer, so the original wiring must have been correct. When I restored power, a green diode on the fr
  9. Thanks LandRover, Overland and John for the quick replies. One thing that I found odd about this was that the outlets near the TV and the kitchen countertop both worked for about a day before they stopped functioning. The problem then became a real crisis because the Keurig could no longer be used! I unscrewed the GFI outlet to look at the wiring. All wires are securely fastened to the screw terminals. I purchased a new GFI outlet at HD yesterday evening. That’s today’s project. Thanks
  10. The dinette Alternating Current receptacle GFI tripped when I tried to use it yesterday. The red diode on the receptacle illuminated but the reset button would not allow it to reset and resume function. I can depress the reset button fully but it does not reset; red diode stays illuminated. No circuit breaker or fuse is tripped or blown. From when this happened yesterday I was still able to use the A/C receptacles in the stove area and above the TV, but this afternoon all A/C outlets, including the outside curbside outlet, stopped working. Again, no fuse is blown. The refrigerato
  11. Hi John Please excuse my slow response. I don’t check in here regularly. A and B: I have 2017 chassis 244, which does not have the EZ Lube spindle connectors that would allow a bearing “flush” with fresh grease. I formerly owned a Casita that did have the EZ Lube design. I think that the 2018 Oliver models do not have the EZ Lube spindles. C. Backing plates on my wheels have two oblong openings at the bottom that are used for adjusting the brake shoe “star” cluster. I don’t think that you can visualize the shoe wear through these holes. There is a small circular hole (~1
  12. Where did you purchase the metal carrier/basket? I see a basket with solid metal sides in the Oliver add on section.
  13. Thanks for documenting this potential problem. I'm monitoring wheel temperatures with the type of infrared thermometer that you recommended and so far (8000 miles) have only had one unrelated problem. I'll be thoroughly going over the brake adjusters when I repack the wheel bearings in another 2000 miles, likely in October. Bob G.
  14. A couple of questions. What's the towing capacity of your Land Cruiser, and do you have an engine oil temp gauge (if so, what were the temps)? Bob G.
  15. Thanks, guys. Here's what I found: CE4340AC-C134-48BE-B5C3-1A9F901862EC Note the black weight attached to a cord that assists the extendable faucet nozzle when it retracts back into the faucet. This weight swings like a pendulum within the space behind the drawers and likely smacked my fridge plug enough times that it eventually knocked it out of the electrical socket. Fridge works fine on AC once it's plugged in. Duh. I moved the "pendulum" to the other side of the sink drain pipes and wrapped it in a spongy foam material. Sad that it took me this long to fig
