  1. We always leave them attached while traveling but sometimes (when we remember) remove weight (such as paper towels, kitchen items, clothes, towels) while traveling. Never had one fall. Turning the dial clockwise presses the suction cup tighter to the wall. These work remarkably well. Check them out on Amazon or on the HASKO website for different types, uses, and designs. They have types for organizing bath/shower items that look interesting (we have not tried yet)
  2. I am a big fan of HASKO suction cup fasteners (hooks). We use them for paper towel holders, kitchen item storage, hanging clothes, and other uses. Adhere strongly to Oliver fiberglass and can easily be moved around as needed. No glue mess. No holes. A simple suction cup attaches to wall. d as needs change. Can get them from Amazon.
  3. Even a loud AC is way better than the summertime tent camping of my youth. Living and camping in the southeast, an AC is required for most months of the year. As I grow older and hearing loss gets worse, the AC seems to get quieter - strange how that works out. We did plug a BOSE speaker into the speaker jack on the back of the television and turned off the Oliver 4-speaker system - this provides for directional and improved sound while watching television with the AC running. Headphones is another option, but not as comfortable while in bed watching favorite shows.
  4. First, we optioned for the electronic door lock and very convenient - a good choice. Highly recommend. However, we had one snafu on the first night we camped after purchasing April 2019. We could not get the electronic pad to unlock and all Oliver keys were inside the Oliver (I know, pretty stupid of us, we had just left Howenwald and were setting up at nearby campsite late Friday afternoon to test our new Oliver). Wife had to crawl into basement and up through the twin bed to open door (I am too "bulky" to make that trip). Since then, we have Oliver spare keys placed outside of Oliver so
  5. We have a 2019 Elite II and the power awning is made by Dometic, I believe. Has Oliver changed to a different provider?
  6. Those annoying lights from electronics at night, simply put 3M sticky to cover light - done. And, can make some note reminders to help organize your world.
  7. We use the Andersen buckets, seem to work fine. I purchased an Andresen "kit" with buckets, banana levelers, and door entry mud mat. All bright orange color. Easy to store and keep clean. Likely same or better options out there, just keeping it same with Andersen (also have Andersen hitch system).
  8. We plan to attend, D10, unless things get worse before this gathering
  9. An additional wish list item, a propane monitor for the propane tanks. Also, living in FL and camping a lot in the southeast, quieting the loud AC is definitely my main wish list item.
  10. The digital Oliver service manuals and Oliver "how-to" videos (Oliver library) are great, but, can only be viewed with internet connectivity to the outside world. Put onto a DVD, especially the "how-to" videos, and provide with Oliver purchase. For existing owners, I would buy a DVD. I believe the DVD player and television work on battery power?
  11. No matter who you are, this is funny! We have a 2019 GMC Sierra Duramax and love it! Tows Oliver like a dream. I realize there are other really good TV options. I am not a GMC salesperson, so to each his own. Nothing against Ford, but a funny poke is always appreciated.
  12. We routinely camp on Lake Seminole, FL, for the excellent fishing and wonderful nature (including plenty of alligators). With the closing of our favorite North Florida Corp of Engineer campground (River Junction), we were forced to try out Three Rivers State Park in Sneads, FL. This is a small, but quite lovely, campground (was much lovelier before Hurricane Michael leveled most of the trees). Much to our surprise, another Oliver pulled in after us. What are the odds. We spoke briefly, but I do not recall the name nor Hull Number (it was in the 500s). The next day, after I returned from
  13. For those of us not so mechanically inclined, and without a home shop (do I even own a torque wrench?), and assuming this recall service is paid by Dexter, seems taking to a service center for inspection and possible torqueing is not too shameful/embarrassing? Might even get the service folks to perform the 3000K lubrication while at it - my last go was a bit messy and not the most favorite task (seems those pesky grease fittings could have been a bit more accessible). Love camping in the Oliver, don't mind washing her, but crawling under her not so much.
  14. I am not following this conversation (in other words, I am confused), so I will attempt to describe what I have setup. I have a 2019 Oliver EII and recently added a Wineguard G3 DirecTV just as you described (purchased equipment and pay $7 per month for extra receiver). LOVE IT! The way I connected my DirecTV: in the attic Oliver provided a coax cable (from the satellite connector on street side of the outside) and an HDMI cable (from the television). I connect the Oliver coax to the Wineguard power box, then fished a new coax from the power box down through the same hole as the televisio
  15. We got the 22-inch double-burner Blackstone Griddle - it is a heavy and a bit overkill (with 2-burners you can cook breakfast for the entire campground). The 17-inch single burner, still a bit heavy, is definitely a better choice. Either way, Blackstone griddle is a versatile cooking machine. We also got the hookup hose for our Oliver propane connections - no need to rely on those propane camp bottles, although we still use them from time to time. And, we got the Blackstone table stand ($89) for easy leveling and eliminate the need for a portable cook table. Although expensive, and heavy,
