  1. I have been sitting in sunny and warm Florida the past 3 weeks, thinking about my low water pressure in bathroom. After buying, trying, and returning a  new faucets  bought from Amazon. I decided to dig deeper into a solution to my problem based on recommendations from this page . I use a portable soft water softener about 50% of the time. I will now use it 100% of the time! I went to the local Wally World and bought 3 gallons of white vinegar. I told my wife that I would decalcify the water lines . I told her that I thought there was less than a 50% chance this would solve the problem since I use a water softener half the time. Boy was I wrong! The vinegar worked its magic. Now,  I have great water pressure. Thanks for those who contributed. I hope by posting this solution it will help those in the future! Thanks again! PS- The links to faucets from Amazon that Dave Wilson and Frank C were awesome!

    We had the same issue a few years ago.  Check for plastic bits or hard water debri in the faucet filter and in the line behind the toilet.  Mike

    The water pressure in toilet is great. Where and how does one get to the faucet filter? I pulled the faucet and it appears to have a decent flow I am going to order new faucet off of Amazon as soon as I get to a good delivery area. Thanks, Darryl

    I’ve had the same problem with mine but it seems related to the use of either vinegar for sanitizing or the winterizing solution.   I think some of the rubber seals in the faucet head are affected/swell up from exposure to the chemicals, reducing the flow.  I just replaced the sprayer head and problem solved.   Cheap and easy fix.

    Does the hose just twist off with a bit of effort at the faucet?  



  4. It is metal. No condensation to speak of. We go to Florida for 6 weeks in February and March so I can't speak of condensation during those months . I think the close up photo makes it looks worse then what it appears. I have an appointment at the mother ship at the end of September. I told them about the yellow today. Pictures below are bathroom window and building.



  5. Currently camping at campground. Power went off at campground. Hooked up Honda generator like I have done a 100 times. I get power to Oliver for about 30 seconds and then power to A/C and Oliver shuts down. The Progressive Surge Protector shuts completelty off, no lights or error code showing. Surge protector is on during the initial 30 seconds, then shuts entirely off. What am I missing. What is causing the progressive surge protector to shut down? Yes, I have tried 2 different grounding plugs. 

  6. I finished my 3589  mile trip on March 9, 2020.  The highest price I paid for diesel was $2.31 and the cheapest was $1.71. In the majority of the cases, I was paying considerably less for diesel then the gasoline listed price. Loves by far is my number one choice. The typical price paid was usually between .60 to .75 cents below listed price. For example, today the Loves near my house where I fueled listed diesel at $2.48 and I paid $1.65 for diesel. Gas is listed for $1.78. This was a discount of .83 cents from the marquee price for diesel.  I love this fuel card!

  7. Problem solved. The military campground has 2 cable hookups. One that is where the other power hookups are and another on a post 3 feet away. I was trying the hookup that apparently is the old one. It had been disconnected. A fellow camper showed me the somewhat hidden new cable hookup. Too darn many channels now and I have been reminded why I cut the cord years ago.

    I hooked the coax cable from the campground box to Oliver.  Where is this connection?
    I then tried attaching the coax to the satellite port on outside of the Oliver.  Is this connection on the rear of the trailer, street side or do you have 2 coax connections outside?

    Have you tried running the coax from the campground box straight to the television?


    My plan tomorrow was to hook it straight to the TV through an open window as part of troubleshoot process. Thereby, by passing conventional hookup. Yes, street side rear.

  9. After 2 years and 200 nights of camping in the our 2018 Oliver, I pulled into a campground for the first time with cable. I hooked the coax cable from the campground box to Oliver and another coax cable in the attic to the port on the winegard hookup in the attic. I performed a cable channel scan and received no channels. The little green light (antenna on/off) was off in the attic at the coax hookup. I then tried it with green light on. Still no channels. I then tried attaching the coax to the satellite port on outside of the Oliver. I did this in case it had been wired wrong. I got same result...no channels. Then, I ran a scan and got numerous channels via the antenna. I spoke with other campers and they state that the cable works great. I am assuming that my issue is operator error. Any advice on receiving the cable channels?


  10. Trainman, I was reading through older topics and thought I would bounce this question off of you and others. Got to Florida yesterday. Dewinterized and everything was good to go on suburban water heater. We had great hot water. This morning no hot water. It goes from warm to cold and back to warm and cold. I have tried both electric and gas. Pretty much same results. The red light on the inside of the Oliver II does not turn on that indicates it is heating. I have called service and am awaiting call back. Anybody got any ideas?

  11. Started journey south with hull number 412 bound for warmer weather. I stopped for diesel for my Duramax. Diesel on the pump was listed for $2.94 per gallon. Using my TSD/EFS fuel card, I paid $2.28 a gallon. It saved me a total $12.99. The app showed the location of each truck stop on my route. I was traveling on I 65 southbound when I refueled in Alabama. My receipt showed up in the app almost immediately. I will get another receipt tomorrow which will show the debit from my checking account.
