  1. Did YOU cause Ollie to shine so beautifully? If so, what did you use? Thanks.
  2. Hi Sherry, Steve, and Pete. Good to hear from members of the"Original 47." Time flew by and now both granddaughters have graduated from high school. They wanted to go camping before they leave for college. Such wonderful memories camping with the grandkids and Revilo. I am most fortunate to "still" camp in the driveway. Everytime I go outside to leave in my truck to go wherever I am going, I pass by Revilo. I am always going inside and enjoying sitting there. It brings me such joy to pretend to be camping, and dreaming of the next opportunity to take Revilo out for an adventure. How much fun it would be if we could all be at the same camping grounds at the same time. I am glad others now have the opportunity to enjoy the Oliver experience. More importantly, I am glad that others are just going camping and enjoying life. I have told the grandkids forever that I hope they enjoy the journey of life and don't rush to get to the final destination. I wish the same to all. Wonderful to hear from yall.
  3. Hi Steve. This is Jam49 - original and still owner of hull #44 - my beloved Revilo. Going camping with granddaughters at Palmetto State Park in Texas next week.
  4. Hi SnowlakeMike. I am not an electrician under any circumstance! Several years ago my seven pin connector was not working properly and I was afraid to pull Revilo to an RV dealer to get it fixed with lights not working properly. I asked many questions and then bought a new plug. I took pictures and carefully noted how it was hooked up. So far so good. I disconnected the faulty plug and installed the new plug according to my notes. Again, so far so good. Until I tested the turn lights, etc. Hmmmmm. And the lights worked. But the right turn light turned on the left turn light and the left turn light turned on the right turn light. I knew I had hooked up the new plug exactly like my notes said. But what I didn't know to ask was the direction of the plug when hooking up the wires again. I asked more questions and discovered that I had hooked the wires in the opposite direction. After making several changes to the wiring on the new plug, I succeeded in getting the wires connected correctly and finally, all lights worked. I tell you this because, as I stated previously, I am no electrician but I managed through trial and error to change the 7 pin plug by myself. It works perfectly now. Since I gained a little bit of confidence from this adventure, I decided to tackle the problem of the electric jack no longer working. After a few calls to the manufacturer to try and determine if I needed a new expensive electric jack, the most helpful person told me how to change the part in the top part of jack. It was about $25 as opposed to $450??? Anyway, long story to tell you that YOU CAN DO IT by yourself (change the 7 pin plug) if you so choose. Good Luck!
  5. I will see if I can find the WD40 garage door lube at the Home Depot close by. Thanks for the info.
  6. I can only share the description from a Camping World ad for its Cyclone 360. A breeze rotates the vent to follow the wind which creates a vortex that pulls up odors up and out so the odors don't enter the rv. (Paraphrased). Mine is not a Cyclone 360 but it works on the same principle. I can only say that I am very happy that I installed the metal vent. The plastic works equally as well according to the reviews I have read but I preferred the metal over plastic. The vent totally pulls the smell out of the rv. I love that the smell is gone but the noise it makes as it turns in the wind is slightly annoying when we are in the rv. I haven't taken the time to experiment with somehow keeping the vent from turning and find out if the smell would still escape anyway. Some reviews stated that the individuals thought that these vents were a total waste of money or just a gimmick. I thought it was worth a try and I am glad I had it installed. It was worth it to me.
  7. John, I read with great interest about the rv composting toilet wondering if I should update Revilo with one. I have a stand alone composting toilet that I used on a piece of property that had no electricity or running water. When I have time, I love to read about the different topics even if it doesn't apply to me currently. There are so many wonderful educational topics and comments on this forum. I did start a new mod topic concerning the vent. Thanks for all the information that is shared here.
  8. Quote #71371 in Composting Toilet post from Don concerning the slight smell to give proper credit.
  9. "...the slight odor associated with the regular RV toilet have been the only things I’ve struggled with as an Oliver owner." To rid Revilo of the light toilet smell, I had a METAL Venturi air vent installed. I love this mod because the air is always circulating and removing the odor. I have had it installed for a number of years and recently had all vents on the roof resealed to keep up with general maintenance. It makes a slight noise as it is turning but I haven’t figured out what minor fix to make to keep it quiet while sleeping or just enjoying being inside. Has anybody else installed this vent? Thoughts, comments, etc? t
  10. the slight odor associated with the regular RV toilet have been the only things I’ve struggled with as an Oliver owner. I am not sure whether to post a reply to the "slight odor" here or post in mods. Please move to New topic, mods, or leave it here - whatever is appropriate.

  11. Version #2251 which most closely resembles the standard key lock version 3. It only has one keyhole on the bottom right of the lock. Good to hear from you too.
  12. Hi Sherry. I have the standard white rv lock with remote key fob that I installed myself but had a little trouble finetuning the fit. ( A mechanic I am not) This was in December, 2010. About this same time, I looked for somebody with fiberglass rv experience to install the silver bubble insulation inside the cabinets of Revilo. (One of the best decisions I have made to insulate the cabinets above.) Anyway, back to the topic of discussion. I did find an individual who could install the insulation and fix the lock so that it would open and close with ease. He did an excellent job. I use the key but I am glad that I have the choice to use the remote keyless entry if I want. I am not sure that the particular styles I see now online were available in 2010. I am perfectly happy with this rv lock and at the moment see no reason to update.
  13. Hello to everybody. Sure miss everybody that I have been so fortunate to meet in person and also to those who I have met online. It is still my opinion that RV people are some of the nicest people in the world! I am so glad the Oliver forum is still active. Best wishes to everybody. Jam49
