  1. Do you have a neutral bonding plug plugged into your generator? If not, the surge suppressor with block the incoming current. See the following post for more information. http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/generator-use-with-hard-wired-surge-protector/ Mike
  2. The white weather strip the covers the outside track of the sliding window is reusable. Be sure to have fun while cleaning the window tracks. Mike
  3. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Mike and Krunch
  4. I replaced mine in May 2019 and it just may be the best $100 I ever spent. You will need 5' for each large window and 2' for the bath on an LEII or 17'. Mike
  5. Good thinking Ken. When something like the generator struggling happens, it very easy to go down the rabbit hole and making it very complicated. I often forget to sit down and think about it. Mike
  6. What type of knee surgery did you have? From my limited experience with knee surgery, only 5 times, hot generally means infection. Have you been back to the doctor? Are you doing physical therapy? I know everyone’s pain level is different, but I stopped pain pills 2 days after an total knee replacement. And remember, ice is your friend for swelling. Mike
  7. Check their website at this link. They are open today till noon MST. https://wifiranger.com/support Mike
  8. One of our forum members makes mahogany shower mats that might help with noise issue until you figure out if it’s a problem or not. See this post https://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/shower-mat-production-starts-next-week/#post-173535. I purchased a teak mat from teakworks4u.com before Foy started making them and I think it distributes my weight more effectively. Mike
  9. Pantry Lights We have used several different battery powered, motion detecting LED lights in our pantry. And we have never been happy changing batteries or waving a hand to try getting the lights to come on. I have seen Snowballs pantry LED fixture and really liked that application, so I went down that rabbit hole looking for my own solution. These are the lights and switches I used.

  10. The battery tray on my 2017 LEII is fastened with 2 bolts farthest inboard on both rails and 2 blind rivets outbound on each rail. I increased the flat washers on the bolts to 1" diameter fender washers. There wasn't any access to the bottom of the rivets for me because the bottom of the battery box sits over the wheel well. My tray is made by MORryde is mounted with stainless bolts and rivets. My battery tray is assembled with steel rivets. Mike
  11. I keep this meter plugged into the AC outlet under the street side bed for informational purposes. I think of it as a gas gauge for the trailer AC electrical system. I can do a quick visual check on the AC power in the trailer without have to get a multimeter out of my tool kit. The outlet I plug into at the house is a 15 amp circuit and it has several outlets in the garage as well lights. If I try to run too much on that circuit, the house breaker may trip or the trailer air conditioner may stop if it is running or the refrigerator will switch to gas when it is set on auto mode. These are all indications that my house circuit is overloaded and if I reduce the load on that circuit, the trailer is happy and everything runs as expected. Mike

  13. Very nice job, but I thought Harley dog would help fetching tools and such, making it at least a 1.5 man crew. Did you see the PM I sent you a week ago? Mike
  14. There really isn’t any movement in tower on my install, but I modified my installation from the stock instructions. All of the movement happens above the Snap Pin, marked by the red arrow. If you would like more detail, let me know. Mike
  15. Did this issue get fixed? Please provide an update. Mike
  16. Congratulations on your new Ollie and it’s maiden voyage. Mike
  17. I’m not sure about that 80/20% because that smile looks like a 100% to me. Enjoy your new Ollie. Safe travels, Mike
  18. You may be right about the power source not making any difference, but I don’t know that. When ever I am troubleshooting any problem, I try to gather as much information as possible. What I know so far is it happens on 2 switches, so I have to assume none of the other 12v lighting circuits are effected. I also assume you are using the switch panel by the door because the rear switch panel does not control the courtesy lights. Open the access port in the upper cabinet above the microwave and find the main and courtesy light switches. Pull the wire connector off of the switch post and push it back on making sure you have a good connection. Do this 1 wire at a time. Do this for both wires on each switch. Now test you work.
  19. Excellent points Steve! It was not my intention to suggest that the only place to jack up the trailer to change a tire was from in front of the front tire. I just couldn’t get a clear picture of the rear jacking point on my trailer. That was also the reason I referenced the newsletter as it has a better description than I provided. But here are 2 pictures copied from the newsletter showing the jack points for OTT's 2017 and newer. Mike
  20. You can all ways verify the spot with a magnet to confirm it is steel. Mike
  21. This is a picture of my 2017 EII. The outside aluminum frame member in bolted to a galvanized steel channel. You want to place your jack under the steel channel, never under the aluminum. The have been some pictures of the 2019 or 2020 trailers and they have a sticker pointing to the jack points, but I can’t find them now. EDIT: The picture of the jack point stickers is in the September 2019 newsletter.
  22. Do you have a problem with all switches and all lights? Are you plugged into AC or running on batteries? Mike
