  1. The up side is the service Oliver provides. You wouldn’t get half that attention from another company. Glad the elec was an easy fix.
  2. How about contacting the previous owner to find out what happened. They may or may not know the answer. It would be disappointing if an owner knowingly sold you a trailer with that big of a problem. Good luck. Also ask Oliver service if any repair tickets were ever noted.
  3. I thought the concept of the natures head toilet was to do away with the standard toilet and not utilize the black tank. More user friendly. I have to agree with JD and SeaDawg you’ll still get the urine smell which would most likely will come from your outside vent unless you constantly pour in vinegar or black tank chemicals. Then your in the same situation as a regular toilet. Find a dump station, hose hookup dump and black tank rinse. As suggested get a second or even a third pee tank. In my opinion that mod may get old quickly and not worth the hassle.
  4. They are saying not much to happen in the ocala Marion county area. Sea Dawg if it changes for the worst you can head my way plenty of room to wait it out.
  5. When I have someone who’s interested in seeing my Oliver, I will turn the Ac on about 45 mins before showing. I open all the cabinets to let the Ac circulate throughout the entire hull. The temp will be at 74dgs the automatic fan goes to low. It is quite cool and the noise level is minimal. This is in Florida temps in the 90s. In short 45mins🥶
  6. My GMC tow vehicle has a 400 watt plug in the rear corner of the bed. I cant see much use for it except for plugging in a portable fridge cooler. I’m wondering, if a solar panel can put out 1-2- 3 400watts with a charge controller can this 400watt plug be used in connection with a solar port connection and a charge controller as how a portable solar panel works? Of course the truck would have to be on and idling for the plug to work. Just thought this would be another possibility for battery charging.
  7. I guess i can officially say my post was right. They are junk and should not be considered. At least you can return it hope the return costs aren’t too bad.💸
  8. I’ll add to that lock n lube another expensive tool dewalt battery operated greese gun matching the two on your first use. No more 🤬🤯🥵 worth every penny.
  9. Check with Oliver. Back In 2019 that plug came with your set up package. It might have changed.
  10. You may even try Oliver. I’ll bet they have a lot of short pieces laying around
  11. JD would an extension off the back of your TV hitch be just as applicable ? They make different lengths. Tongue and cargo weight may come into play. Eventually you have to say to yourself how much is too much. 🥴
  12. In Florida Ocala area those black spots are flies pooping. All the above work well if they stay on to long. Usually just soap and water works fine.
  13. So you have two for safety in case one fails. One is shut off and forgotten to be turned back on the second one fails ☠️ Thanks for the clarification.
  14. John You always have very good Modifications idea’s. This one I have to disagree with. These units are there for one very important purpose to save your life. Maybe not so much for propane because of the smell but carbon monoxide as we all know is a silent killer, especially in the small confined space of the Oliver. I’ll agree they are a pita when they malfunction and the alarms sounds in the middle of the night for no reason. As for myself forgetfulness is becoming more often than i care to admit. Its one switch I would not want to forget even with it flagged. With high safety issues modifications like this is not a good idea to share imo.
  15. I cant see it but I also can’t argue.Trailer steel frames would flex much more than this solid box aluminum frame. My 2019 has the marked jack points. I’m sure its more of a liability thing like not using the elec jacks to change tires. This is something that I personally won’t be concerned about.
  16. What is the problem with putting a jack on the aluminum frame? These frames are supposed to be of high quality material and are quite thick. What kind of damage will occur? You may put marks on the frame from the steel jack pedestal. A block of wood between the frame and jack would solve that problem. Aren’t the electric jacks attached to the frame? They don’t cause any damage to the frame. Or will they?
  17. what a great mod. Simple appears heavy duty. I would also lock the levers to the chain for safety. I’m sure Anderson would not approve and your warranty is out the window. Still a great mod hope it works well for you. Thanks
  18. According to GM they are weighed after the build. It’s nice to see all the ratings on the sticker I’ve haven’t seen this before. The redesigned frames are impressive. 2022 GMC Denali 2500 Duramax 18500 towing 3700lbs payload vs 2017 highcountry 2500 Duramax 13500 towing 27900 payload, big difference.
  19. I forgot to mention my last Duramax Mpg 14-16 towing the Oliver 21mpg no towing climbs steep hills at only 1500-2000 rpm range barely working the engine. The engine braking you’ll barely touch the brakes.
  20. If you want a gas truck look at the GMC Denali 1500 6,2 with tow pkg. 13,5 k towing very impressive. More than you need. If you want to jump to the Denali 2500 go all the way with the Duramax very much overkill tow rating 18,500. Lbs 450 horse power 900+ torque. The problem once you go that route with the Duramax its hard to go back as I did. It is $9700.00 more for the Duramax IMO its worth it.
  21. Airstream trailers are still much higher priced, and they are still selling. If you have the finances your going to buy. I almost walked away at my 2019 price @ 62k I personally wouldn’t pay the new price. It is a well built trailer but still a small trailer. There are new upcoming trailers hitting the market that will give Oliver a run for the money.
  22. Thanks for all the members help.
  23. My Oliver 2019 doesn’t have the solar panels, but does have all the options for the 2019 model 4 agms 2000 watt inverter. I still can’t get it to click on all the charging tech numbers amp hours etc. Question My new TV has a 400watt outlet in the rear bed. I have the adapter 110 to 30 amp cord for the trailer. Will this kick on the charging system and charge the battery’s. I’m sure the rate will be slow and the truck will have to be running. So what is the math probability of this? Just thinking if all else fails generator, shore power etc. Thanks
  24. I’ve had some experience with this type of problem and how to handle it to come out on top. This would have been a hard case to win considering everything that is going on. It’s a long dragged out process. I fought once before and won. Getting older and tired of all the fighting and battling. Some one was looking out for me. I walked into to local GMC dealer and this truck was just delivered two hours prior. 2022 GMC Denali 2500 Hd Duramax. The dealer was still willing to wait the 12-16 week repair time and i was still able to negotiate a lower price, not the best I’ve ever done but I was happy. Im back on the road no more repair headaches.🎉
