  1. i would guess at close to 500lbs on the "shelf". Its amazing that the I "screws" are still holding on to the 2x2's. I doubt they are bolted thru the corner uprights. Seeing that mess is how nature says "stay away"!
  2. I just removed mine and ended up with what initially looked like a felt tip marker guide line, however it was actually part of the adhesive of the weatherstrip. The adhesive residue can be removed with a plastic blade putty knife or an old credit card. The plastic blade does not scratch the fiberglass. Follow with some acetone if you don't get it all with the blade. I like the results as the weather strip just collected debris.
  3. Thanks for the link. Right after I posted I thought it may be water getting in to the connection cable, that was the culprit. Thanks newshoes
  4. My Elite 1 is hooked up to shore power only, no connection to TV, last night I noticed that the tail lights are partially illuminated. Only the outer LED's are illuminated? I believe that there had previously been a comment regarding this situation. Has anyone else had this occur? Thanks Newshoes
  5. I think that shutoff valves to isolate the outdoor shower are a great idea. I may have to look into that or just go south for the winter! I am sure Oliver could incorporate them in future builds with minimal effort. It is comments like these that only help to make Oliver trailers even better! Thanks for the idea!
  6. Poor Oliver dogs! They must shoulder a lot of responsibilities!
  7. I agree with Overland; just use the onboard jack..oops I mean stabilizer. In this litigious society I can see why Oliver (and other manufacturers) with advice from their attorneys would want to take a CYA approach for all possible contingencies. I carry a small aluminum floor jack in the truck when towing; weighs about 30 lbs and has a 3000lb capacity. Most likely just a 30lb placebo as I would use the "stabilizer" for changing a tire. Can't fault Oliver in my opinion for their conservative position. No flames intended!
  8. Newshoes here. How do you explain the "headers" in Russian this AM? Also had numerous Canadian pharmacy "junk". Also had many 404 errors in the last few days.
  9. A little late to the dance (me). I have the natures head and just cover it with a "round" barbecue grill cover. Makes the Head a good seat from which to shower and it keeps the Head dry. I think I paid $20 at Home depot for the cover.
  10. Bob CalMark has a template that asks for dimensions taken from the trailer along with providing them some pics. I provided them with the dimensions and photos prior to the fabrication. They have made some previously for the Elite II but did not indicate they had done a Legacy Elite. Each one would be slightly different depending upon what is mounted to the roof. We'll see how it came out. Cost around $700 or a little over 1% of the trailer cost! Thanks, Andrew
  11. Well I ordered a cover for my Legacy Elite from CalMark July 17 and it is supposed to arrive this Thursday August 22. Not inexpensive, but quality does not come cheap. Just wanted a cover that matched the quality of the Oliver. I'll post a report on the finished product once I have a chance to test fit it.
  12. Thanks all for the EZE gutters tips. I am not sure what advantage there is to extending the gutters vertical down each side of the window. Would it not be better to just extend the horizontal gutter (top of the window) perhaps 2" beyond the vertical edge of the window and put a gentle downward curve at each end? That way the runoff from the gutters would be directed away from the window and would sheet flow with the runoff coming from the top of the trailer. That would also eliminate the tight curve at the top of the windows which seems to be problematic for good adhesion. Its supposed to be in the 90's in MD this coming week so I will give it a try. Just my 2 cents!
  13. My 2019 Elite 1 with empty tanks (black tank will not be used), composting toilet and 250lbs of permanent equipment forward of the axle weighs 4100lbs. No front carrier or rear bike rack, 20lb propane tanks (full). Tongue weight on the scales (commercial) was 420lbs. I have a tow drawbar with a built in scale that indicated tongue weight at 430lbs+/-. I had the weights confirmed by a private trucking companies scale (sand and gravel operation). I would imagine I would not be loading more than an additional 150lb of cargo in the trailer and initially travel with empty fresh water tank. Cargo would be over the trailer axle. I still need to check the tongue weight with the fresh water tank full (250lbs+/-). Looks like travel tongue weight will be 10% + with or without the on-board water. I know this doesn't help with the Elite II. Newshoes
  14. Wow! that would put them at about 3 a week or more for 2019! impressive. Thanks for the responses (all)
