  1. Yesterday, I took my 2019 Oliver Elite II, #487, to a local RV dealer repair shop here in Boonville, North Carolina, to have the Dexter axle bolts checked. The rear axle bolts were were all fine. The front axle had 4 bolts that could not be turned with your fingers but with a wrench were obviously loose. And 1 bolt could be turned with your fingers. That meant that out of the 8 bolts on the front axle, 5 were loose. The mechanic torqued all to 70 ft lbs. The repair shop handled the warranty paperwork. Dexter did ask the mechanic to take a picture of the tracking tag on the front axle. I'm guessing to help them determine which batch of axles were not tightened properly. I returned to North Carolina just before Christmas after going on my first trip in my Oliver. I traveled over 6,000 miles in 3 months, and passed through 21 states. I was in Alabama when I received the notice from Oliver about the recall. I called a couple of mobile RV mechanics but was told that they did not work on RV axles. I next tried a nearby Camping World but was told they were not sure they could perform warranty work on Dexter axles. I checked each wheel and could not see any missing bolts and of the bolts I tried to turn, none felt loose. So I decided to continue on home and have my mechanic take a look. Nothing had happened in 6,000 miles and couple of hundred more miles shouldn't matter. In hindsight, not a good idea.
  2. I am considering purchasing an Oliver Elite II and would be downsizing from a 32 ft travel trailer. I have two cats and am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for locating a litter box in the Oliver. Thanks in advance, Robert
