  1. Hi Pete, Understood about how your 2pc design goes together. The issue with the 1pc is that unless you have a propane fitting that is designed for a bulkhead, there is no great way to hold the piping and/or quick release. A bulkhead fitting is designed exactly for this scenario and I did find a couple available on the internet. I may just order one and do that. However, if Oliver has one of the 2pc designs sitting around that I could buy, then I would likely do that. My leak was purely from the use of a 1pc bracket and no way to securely attach the quick release fitting without
  2. Thanks for the info Pete. I'll get ahold of Robert to see if they have any of those 2pc brackets left. The one piece that is installed in mine is a pretty poor design that leaked badly. I took it apart and made some modifications to it to stop the propane leak, but I considered it temporary until installing a different design. Thanks again, Kyle
  3. Hi Pete, Where did you get the nice two piece aluminum bracket to hold the propane quick disconnect? The one installed in mine is a single piece that doesn't have anywhere the nice fit that your two piece appears to have. Thanks! Kyle
  4. Hi Sherry, Did you end up using the cover? If so, how does it fit? Thanks, Kyle
  5. Chris, As an avid car freak, I really doubt your issue is air pressure. Under inflation will almost always wear both outside edges of a tire and you would also see this on both tires, not just the outer edge of one tire. Sounds to me like the camber is out of whack on the curb side. Our axles are not adjustable like an automobile, but I'm wondering if trailer shop could bend it slightly using heat and a press. Otherwise, it would likely mean axle replacement. One thing to check is to get a angle measure device(~$15, see the link below) from Home Depot/Lowes/Ace and a straight edg
  6. We received a kitchen sink plug/strainer with ours. It is in matching chrome. For the bathroom, we received the rubber stopper on a chain.
  7. There are quite a few vendors who sell the Dri-dek tiles, so don't necessarily have to get them directly from Dri-dek. I purchased mine from West Marine.
  8. Kyle & Karen, Nice looking interior and list of options. Well done! The charging station and mounted rechargeable flashlight are especially nice. On trailer # 40 can you turn on all of your exterior lights from inside, to include those on the street side? I see you are fly fishermen. I've only been once with the Wonder Egg and found that a suction cup hook attached to the outside makes a great place to hang up waders for drying. (Something I learned from camping with SeaDawg in the Appalachian Mountains - Sherry is the Queen of Suction Cups ) Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy
  9. Herm, The white box is for the cellphone amplifier. That white box is the receiver part. The amplifier is inside the cabinet to the left of the stereo. Yeah, we are very happy we decided to go with the Oliver and not a tent camper. I'm sure we would have had fun with a tent camper, but it definitely wouldn't be able to compare to the adventures we'll have in the Ollie. There were a few club members with tent campers at the outing over the weekend. And on Sunday morning is was very enlightening watching them take down camp and how long it took them to get ready to hit the road.
  10. Chuck and Geri, This was our first time to Dead Horse State Park. Although have spent quite a bit of time in Cottonwood, Jerome, etc. Just had never gone to the park. We were there with a group from the flyfishing club we are part of, so the club had reserved the group camping site. The group site doesn't have hookups, but was nice. Sites were level, had fire rings and picnic tables. It is a nice 5-10 minute walk to the ponds and the horse stables. Right next door to the group site is a small site with hookups. It had more vegetation and trees. And up the hill is the
  11. I plan to install an airtank in this area as well.
  12. Hi all, In another thread I had committed to posting some pictures, so finally getting around to that. It is ironic that the timing of our first outing coincided one year to the day of when we first discovered Oliver at the 2008 Phoenix RV Show. The show was here again over the weekend. My wife and I were pretty set on getting a tent trailer, but after seeing the Oliver and hanging out inside it for about an hour...we were hooked and decided that was the path for us. We took delivery of #40 on Feb 2nd. We did quite a few changes/upgrades, so special thanks to Robert and the crew for
  13. I just picked up one of those Wally World RV water filters last week and used it over the weekend. During the flush I didn't get any black sediment, just a very slight tint to the water for the first few seconds. Flushed it for a minute or so and water was totally clear. This is my first experience with the filter, so don't have any history to provide. Kyle
  14. Correct, I was referring to the fiberglass pieces that are attached to the outside of the wheelwell. I'll be taking some pictures this weekend and will get them posted up. Definitely very excited to have the Oliver at home now.
  15. I checked out the new Elite 2 in Quartzsite last week when I was picking up my new Ollie(#40). The 22' is definitely a beautiful trailer. For the person/couple looking for more sleeping room and a slightly larger kitchen, this should be the hot ticket. I really liked the extra storage space, both inside and outside. The outside accessible storage area is a great addition. It has enough space to store your grill, firewood, hoses, etc. Something else I really liked is the wheel well fixtures that they have added. This looks really nice and gives a much more finished/refined look to the ex
