  1. Hello, I haven't been here for awhile so I don't know when it happened but my Display name has a bunch of numbers in it. Can I get this fixed? Thank you, Kenny
  2. I have to constantly keep hitting buttons because it doesn't respond and then sometimes it jumps all at once like I've hit it several times. I've searched the internet and found posts of people with different RVs reporting this problem. I even found a post that said Dometic would replace the Thermostat Cover under warranty. Most people said to just operate it with the cover off but I'm not really down with that. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if so, do I go through Oliver or deal directly with Dometic?
  3. As an owner of a 2016 Nissan Titan XD (not the 4x4), I can tell you it pulls like a dream. I picked my Ollie up in Hohenwald and pulled her to Texas through some high winds. I traveled 70 mph all the way. I think the only issue with the truck you are looking at is the 4x4 is probably going to lower the towing capacity just from the weight of 4x4 package. On my 4x2, I think the towing capacity is around 10000, well beyond the 7000 lb trailer weight. I will say that when we get our next TV, we're going to look at other makes to hopefully get something a little more comfortable in the cabin. By then, maybe Nissan will have something a little more upscale. Of course I bought a cheaper model (I paid about the same price you're looking at brand new). I know there is one other Ollie owner that pulls with the Titan XD because he was helpful to me when I was asking the same questions because I owned the truck before I bought the Ollie. I forgot to mention that I've had the cooler replaced under warranty and the wiring harness with partial warranty. It was out of warranty but I think this wasn't the first truck with the wiring harness issue, so they paid for like 70% of the repair. Good luck in your search!
  4. Hi John, Sorry about the delayed response, I thought I already replied to this a few days ago. Anyway, I'll start a new thread at some point. I've been a Nissan fan since before they were Nissan (anyone remember Datsun?) I've had this truck for about 2 years and the only real issue I've had is a leak in the EGR cooler just last month. It was replaced under warranty. One thing I've noticed is that when coming to a "near" complete stop and then re-accelerating, there is a delay from hitting the gas pedal until the transmission is engaged, which can feel a little rough. It doesn't do that from a complete stop. I've read on forums that some people drive with the Tow Mode on all the time because they say it helps with that but I've never done it. I've got great hopes for this diesel engine, it's a Cummins after all! To be honest, just about anything, including a hamster in a wheel would be better than the Ford F-250 6.0L I had previously.

  5. I don't pick up my Ollie until November but my tow vehicle will be 2016 Nissan Titan XD Crew Cab /w Cummins 5.0L V-8 Diesel Engine. This truck has been marketed as a "5/8", something between a 1/2 ton and 3/4 ton truck. I get between 18-20 mpg in this truck just driving around. I'm sure that will go down with an Ollie in tow but impressive none the less. The sticker price is real nice too.
  6. Marybeth and Neil, Welcome to the forums! Our Ollie went into production August 17. The wait is excruciating and our spare room is getting full! LOL Happy Trails! Kenny & Penny
  7. It's flipped again. I think it happens when I edit my profile and update it. Even though I'm unable to set the Display Name, saving my profile somehow overwrites whatever you are setting. Not sure what to do about that.
  8. Small world we live in! 5 miles north would put your brother-in-law in Mont Belvieu, am I right? The school system our son attends is in Mont Belvieu. We did get the solar and upgraded batteries just in case we do need to evacuate because we sit a mile off of Trinity Bay. I haven't actually towed anything with the Titan XD yet. I got it for the great gas mileage and potential longevity of the diesel engine. I think it's going to be more than adequate for pulling the Ollie. There's another gentlemen on here that pulls his Ollie with a Titan XD and he says it handles like a top. Thanks for all your posts on the forum. They've been very helpful as we prepare for the big day!
  9. The Natchez Trace is on our bucket list but it will have to wait for a later trip. Work is still calling... For now!
  10. Thank you Sherry! If we need to change the other account that is no problem. I'll keep an eye on it and let you know if it flips again. Thanks again!
  11. Hi, we are from Beach City,Texas. We are planning our retirement which should kick off in about five years. Our plan is to travel the country and find where we want to put down roots. Our Ollie went into production August 17th and our delivery date is November 8th! For now, our Oliver will be pulled with a 2016 Nissan Titan XD Crew Cab with a Cummins turbocharged 5.0-liter V-8 Diesel engine. We want to thank everyone on the forums and at OTT for sharing so many details which helped inform our decision. We also want to extend a special thank you to Cobra 1169 for generously giving us a tour of his Ollie.
  12. Ignore the above post. I was trying to check on why the new display name you set for me was no longer working and accidentally posted from there. Could you check that this account (kenpen) has the display name set to "Kenny & Penny"? If you have to change the other account (kenwade13) back to username that's fine to.
  13. Hello Admins, Can I get one of you to change my display name from this login name to "Kenny & Penny". Mr Walmsey did this for me last week but it was on my personal account and not a joint one. We will be removing our personal accounts once we get this one set up. Sorry for asking this in the forum but I was unsure who to message privately. Please delete this post if it's inappropriate. Thank you, Kenny & Penny
