  1. Hello John, You could bypass the pressure sensor to rule that out, but having a extra pump on hand is always a good idea, even if you find out the pressure sw. is the problem. Good luck, and let us know the outcome. Harold
  2. We have been using , ParkAdvisor and have really good luck with it. This year we are going to add, iOverlander which lists free camping and shows water and dump stations. Harold
  3. Dear Dud B, My husband and I are in complete agreement with Steph. We were concerned that 4.5 cu ft would be too small before we took our North Dakota trip, but it turned out to work just fine for us. And you are right, the food lasts for about 5 days, the same time you're thinking of using the dump station. We also used a cooler in our truck to store extra drinks so you are right on the mark. To make life easier we found that putting all our meats in one rectangular bin and our vegies and fruits in another made it a little easier to pull them out of the refrig. and kept things from rolling around. p.s. We don't eat out much and it held five full days of food.😃 Happy travels to you from Michigan.
  4. Steve & Ann, we opted not to get the street side awning, we do like to keep the windows open so i installed the small white gutters on all the windows, it only helps with a very light rain (mist) or the dew in the morning.
  5. VBristo & Cameron: Most any heating company could make you one. Just have to fit-check it once made to see if it will hit wires or valves & the fiberglass cover will not rock around. Because i worked for a HVACR company and had installed LOTS of furnaces and AC units, I had experience in fabricating sheet metal fittings. Because of the small size 26ga or 24ga metal is fine.
  6. I made a sheet metal box to fit in the space but not hit or rub on any wires or tubing. It is suspended from the flange so it can not drop down. It is easy to remove and reinstall.
  7. Or you can go to https://www.fiberglassrv.com/forums/f56/window-louver-vents-93317.html But i do not know if the guy is making them still (he is 3D printing them)
  8. You can use Star Brite Instant Black Streak Remover Boat Cleaner, If any lingering marks are left the wax will remove them.
  9. Thanks for the ideas, Townesw & Galway Girl.
  10. I wish the battery testing would have included heat (or desert temps) to see the difference capacities.
  11. What a great idea !! Our television has "unclipped" several times, I will be using your idea soon, Thanks
  12. Hello Moonlight Mike, First congrats on your new travel trailer, I know this is a bit late but I noticed in one of your pictures your TT electrical hookup was laying on the ground. You may want to consider a "Husky Towing 61497 Universal Connector Storage Kit". Cost only about $7.50 It will give you a place to keep your electrical plug out of the water where damage can be a real problem. It is easy to install to. Best of luck to you and hope to see ya on the road some day
  13. HI Dennis1, First off you have 2000 Watts not 2000 amps using the battery and inverter Most space heaters are max of 1500 watts, So if you are connected to shore power of 30 amps, you should be able to run a space heater & or you furnace with no problem. If you are just on battery/solar you will have to be a bit carful on the power drain. I would just run the heater and when that is off it should be ok to run the Microwave. Leave the refrig. on LP. I am sure others will give a better explanation in a short time.
  14. WOW so much fun ahead, Excited for you both.
  15. I was camping a few weeks ago and a Airstream owner came over to say Hi, In the conversation he said his Airstream had a bad dent in one of the panels, this quoted repair for one panel was $6000. I explained my got sideswiped on the 3rd day (yes 3 days after delivery day!!)... my repair was about $450 and MY Oliver bumper took off the cars bumper that hit us and did no damage to the Oliver's bumper (well one small cut that the factory repaired).
  16. I have the MIFI Jetpack also and it works with the cell phone booster. I opted not to get the WiFi booster
  17. I do like my Cell Amplifier, If i have only one bar on my phone it will boost it to 2 bars, most all the time.
  18. Nice work, thanks for doing the video and the information !!
  19. Wonderful pictures, so glad you made it home safe in that ice fog weather. Bet you were glad to have found a nice place to store the TT.
  20. Thirddoor, the reason for the flow reducers is so you can adjust the flow, maybe reduce the flow a bit in the main cabin to push more in the bathroom (you may want more warm air in the bathroom), but there is no harm in what you have done. I would check the bathroom vent to make sure you are getting enough air flow in there. Glad it reduced the noise for you it was a good idea!!
  21. Awesome news, you will find it is easy to pull, set up and ENJOY...
  22. Yes I agree, sounds like a power problem (Low Voltage to camper) with the easy start able to get the a/c started but the cord to the camper may be to small (lots of extension cords are only 18 to 16ga wire) to maintain the amp draw, so the voltage goes down. The a/c can have a draw of 12 to 14 amps at 120 volts so a short extension cord (less than 25ft.) and of at least 14ga. wire is required for 15 amps (the longer the extension cord the more the voltage will drop).
  23. Newshoes, We are scheduled to pick up our new Oliver Elite II on August 13th, Hull # 543, We are so ready and excited for the "Big Day", packing the truck and trying to not forget anything. Harold and Sue Update, we picked up our new OTT and were surprised to see that the Hull # was 508, we asked about it and the best we all could figure i was told the wrong number or I misunderstood... when we asked about Hull #543 we found out, it is not in production yet.
  24. Brown outs are the worst for any motor or compressor. It makes them draw more current and heats up the motor winding's it also makes the motors and compressors very hard to start often tripping the overload in the motor (or the circuit breaker but if that happens the a/c will not come on until you reset the breaker). If that happens it will sound like a HUMMM and then click off and in a few minutes another HUMMM. If it does happen just turn off the A/C and let the motor/compressor cool (about 30 to 60 min) then turn it back on (but i would check the incoming power to make sure it is not 10% below what it should be) and it should start up ok. Hope this helps, Harold
  25. Hello Sandyc, and welcome. Here is a link to some custom bedding that some one found and posted in another topic. Hope it helps. Harold https://www.ablifestyles.net/keep-a-bed-waterproof-mattress-cover-for-rvs-campers/
