  1. The temperature dropped to 24F last night. Temperatures recorded: Outside temp 34 25 Top of rear tire 35.4 27 Basement temp 48.9 39.6 Bathroom cabinet temp 62.5 57.9 Nightstand temp 72 63.2
  2. Can one camp at freezing temperatures for 4 hours, a low of 24F? Draining the outdoor shower and keeping the cabin at 70F?
  3. A few years ago, someone posted a way to put a flexible, corragated hose over the awning to protect it from sunlight, etc. Can you tell me where that post was or what size the hose was?
  4. That fixed it. Tuesday, I'm going to have Internet connected. I think they use the coax. I'm hoping the coax in the cabinet over the TV was wired to the outside coax too. Does anyone know if the coax in the cabinet over the TV is connected to the outside coax?
  5. I moved the coax from the Ollie Cable hookup to the Ollie Satellite hookup. The Jensen tv has found 123 stations- and still going. Hope it works now.
  6. We got our Elite 2 in 2019. We've had it mothballed in a storage bin. Just brought it to a trailer park. We are trying to watch TV with it. The trailer has 2 outside ports: cable & satellite. I hooked the RV park's cable to the Ollie's cabel port. I selected source TV. It asks me to scan for channels. I don't find any when I do that. Am I doing something wrong?
  7. We got our Oliver in 2019. We brought it home and due to work haven't been able to use it. It's been in storage. Just brought it out. The MaxxAir fan is having the same problem as Pat mentions.
  8. When you are disconnected from power and the generator is running, can you get power from both the batteries and the generator at the same time? And, if so, how much power? Up to 30 amps?
  9. Oliver put an aluminum box on for me. I got it from etrailer. RC Manufacturing Toolbox 350975. They mounted it securely. Water tight.
  10. We are picking up our trailer in April. I'm looking at the Proven Industries 2516-B coupler lock. We are getting a hitch with a 2-5/16 ball. What does it mean that "Oliver hooks are so big only one will fit." ? Anyone have a picture of their setup with a 2516-B coupler lock?
  11. Does the hypervent tear your sheets at the edges?
  12. Would it help to drill some holes thru the platform / support that the mattress lies on?
  13. How about an RC Manufacturing Trailer Toolbox Model 350975 ?
  14. Did you end up with 3/8 or 1/2" chain? How long is the chain? Thanks in advance.
  15. I have a Ford F250 Limited. From the ground to the top of the receiver is 24". Per Oliver, from the ground to the top of the coupler is 22.5". I think that all I need is 1.5" of drop. I'm planning on getting a Weigh Safe with a 4" drop. Can anyone confirm that this is what is needed?
  16. Thanks. What’s the best size, 9x12, 8x16, or 8x 20?
  17. Thanks. amazon has a 9x12 and a 9x18
  18. Where is the best place / way to store your outdoor carpet? Whats the right size carpet to get?
  19. Russell n Cindy, we'd like to meet up. We'll keep in touch. Bruce n Vas
  20. Those are logical reasons to choose the Elite I. My wife and I went thru the same logic and decided on the II. Tough choice. We have a puppy who is 65 pounds and growing. This will be our first time RV'ng, so everything is new to us. We are enjoying the process. We got a 250 diesel which I'm driving. It's comfortable and is averaging 19.2 mpg over the 8000 miles we've had it. I got the diesel because I like the power, the diesel braking, and I had a good experience with a 2002 VW Jetta Diesel. I averaged 52 - 63 mpg with it and very low maintenance. The only maintenance was change the oil and filters and the timing belt. Tires now and then. I had 30% left on the brake pads and never changed the clutch out. After 275,000 miles I traded it in for the truck. After I got the truck, we thought about getting some land clearing equipment. Then, I wished we had got the 350. I learned a lot about towing capacity then. Even though vehicles can tow something, you need to make sure you are legal in the event you are in an accident.
  21. We looked at it a little, but not too much. We decided to get the Elite II because it was a little bigger and twin axles. I liked the Elite I because it was smaller and it would be able to go a few places that the Elite II can't. For example, there are some spots in Big Bend that a 23.5' trailer isn't supposed to fit. What are the pros and cons that you've considered?
