  1. Check my shocks today. One of them is blown. I hope to have it taken care of by Oliver when I take it down for service in 2 weeks. The other item in need of replacement is bathroom vent van. RV is still under warranty until December. I have hull number 412.
  2. Bill, It took me numerous attempts and the regulator gauge is now showing solid green. I kept lighting the stove to clear any possible air from the gas lines. The propane regulator indicator gauge would go green and then go to half green/red upon turning the stove burners off. I did this about 6 times. Somewhat baffled by this, I then turned on the hot water heater with propane switch heating the water. After approximately a half hour, the regulator indicator turned green and has remained green every since. Not sure if air can get in the hot water tank gas line or not. With that said, minor issue has been corrected. Thanks!
  3. Had a 30 pound propane tank filled today. I placed it back in the Oliver. I turned it on slowly and lighted the stove in the Oliver to bleed any air out of lines. The regulator gauge turned green. After turning the stove off, it went back to half green and half red. I retried and always got the same. The other tank shows solid green when I try it What have I done wrong? Why is it half green and half red?
  4. Bathroom vent van suddenly quit working today on 2018 Elite II. It is the 100th day camping and trailer is still under warranty. All other electrical circuits, lights, etc are working. Push button switch on bathroom vent seems like it has from day one of camping. Any recommendations? Thanks! Darryl
  5. WE really like our 2018 Duramax HD. On the trip to Western United States this year pulling the Oliver Legacy Elite 2, we averaged 14.1 mpg. We drove her pretty hard and she performed really well. I am now considering a Ranch Hand Front Bumper/Grill Guard PART NUMBER : FBC155BLR. Has any Duramx owners bought one as of yet or a like system? Thanks, Darryl
  6. We had a problem with water flow to the toilet. We happened to be on our way to Tennessee for some upgrades when it happened. The service guys found hard water deposits where the hose connects to the toilet preventing flow. We have been using a water softener since. We’ve been to some remote campgrounds that I’m sure had some pretty hard water. Mike and Carol, Which water softener do you utilize? Darryl
  7. <p style="text-align: left;">We departed from the Rally. Went home for a few days and started west. I made a small wager with my wife that we would see 3 Olliver's on thos trip besides ours. She said we would see 1. So far none. Here we are today at Cedar Pass Lodge Campground in the Badlands.</p>
  8. Overland recommends a Precision Instruments torque wrench, which is probably a very good one, but at $155 it seems quite expensive to me. I have not used my torque wrench for anything but the lug nuts on my car and trailer. I ordered it off of Amazon on Sunday and got it today. I used it on the lug nuts and bulldog this afternoon. Thanks for the recommendation! It was the most expensive tool that I have ever purchased but it should last my lifetime. It worked as advertised and it is nice to use really good tool(s).
  9. See you at the Rally! Congratulations!
  10. At Land Between the Lakes COE Canal Campground tonight. A very nice place. This nice Kentucky campground is only hour away from our home.
  11. Hello, We travel with 2 Cairn Terriers. They each weigh about 14 lbs a piece. We recently returned from a 40 day trip. The dogs were sleeping on a blanket on the floor between the twin beds. Each morning, we would take them on a walk and pick up their blanket. We noticed that there was moisture on the floor. So, we decided to buy an elevated bed. This is the product that we purchased. Fiksu Pets Heavy Duty Elevated Pet Bed (small) from Amazon. It cost $39.99. We had it shipped to a campsite where we were located. It worked extremely well and problem was solved.
  12. We returned from our maiden voyage in our Oliver Elite 2 on March 18. It was a 3500 mile trip and 39 nights in the Oliver. On this trip, I spoke with numerous Airstream owners. One of owners, who had recently purchased a 25' Airstream was very interested in how our Oliver towed. I told him that it pulls like a dream. He said I see you do not have Sway Control Hitch. I told him that my 2500 Duramax did not need it to pull the Oliver. He could not believe what I was telling him. He said so your Oliver doesn't sway when a truck passes you? I said not yet. He then explained to me the motion that his Airstream produces when being passed by big semi trucks is not good. He was towing his Airstream with a Tundra and a sway control hitch. He mentioned that he had visited Oliver but made the decision to go with Airstream because of the interior layout. He almost sounded disappointed with his purchase of the Airstream . I am so thankful that Oliver tows nicely behind my truck. If I had to worry about sway control whenever a Semi Truck passed me, it would not be fun. We did not purchase many upgrades except Solar, AGM Batteries, large propane tanks and television antenna, I am now looking to upgrade the mattresses for the twin beds and dinette cushions. Those are my only two downers thus far. I have had a couple of warranty issues but I have full faith in them getting repaired this week so we can get on the road again.
  13. Instead I purchased from Amazon the Zinus Ultima Comfort Memory Foam 6 Inch Mattress, Narrow Twin / Cot Size / 30″x 75″. Geronimo John, Did the Zinus Ultima narrow twin fit nicely into the twin bed opening? Also, does the Zinus Mattress feel firm? Thanks, Darryl
  14. We are on Day 28 of a shake down inaugural trip in Oliver 412. We love our Eva-Dry dehumidifier and our Honeywell Space Heater. Also, we purchased a Fiksu Pets Elevated Dog bed for our Cairn Terrier. These have all been worthwhile purchases.
