  1. 7 Pin Waterproof Holder Mod - Did this for our unit as we had that exact problem...water in the 7 pin after heavy rains. Now we are good...
  2. Update in WA State Parks and Campgrounds. March 22, 2020 The Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission (Parks), Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced the closure of all state campgrounds across Washington to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Campgrounds will remain closed through April 30. The closure includes roofed accommodations like cabins, yurts and vacation houses. No new campers will be allowed into Parks, WDFW or DNR lands beginning Monday, March 23. Current campers will be phased out following instructions from land officials. Day-use areas and trails remain open. Due to the volume of people visiting Washington’s ocean beaches, we are asking the public to avoid those areas. People should continue to practice social distancing when recreating outdoors. STATE PARKS Campers who have state parks reservations through April 30 will be notified and offered a full refund. Visitors can find the latest information about State Park operations on this page. DEPARTMENT OF FISH AND WILDLIFE Although camping is not allowed, WDFW wildlife areas and water-access areas remain open for public use at this time. However, due to theft and increased usage of their restrooms, visitors should plan to bring their own hand sanitizer and toilet paper. For the latest information about WDFW operations, visit the WDFW website. DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES DNR’s camping will be closed to dedicated camping areas and dispersed camping or camping outside of designated camp sites. For the most up-to-date information for DNR lands, visit DNR’s website.
  3. Washington State Parks - Link on COVID 19 https://parks.state.wa.us/1177/Novel-Coronavirus---COVID-19 Washington State parks and camping remain open. In response to Gov. Inslee’s mandate, we are making the following changes to operations through April 30: Visitor and interpretive centers are closed. Most special activities and special permits are cancelled. Planned programming is cancelled. Group camp and group reservations such as picnic shelters are restricted. New camp hosts will not be placed in parks. Read more information for camp hosts. We are taking additional measures to limit visitor and staff interactions at offices and at registration. This includes: Using drive-up/walk-up windows when possible. Limiting the number of visitors in an office. Providing electronic options for purchasing passes and making reservations. Using automated pay stations, where available. We ask that all visitors exhibit personal responsibility and take steps to protect their health and the health of others. As the situation changes, we will continue to follow the governor and public health officials’ guidance when it comes to managing our park system.
  4. Forgot to mention we bought our cover and sheet sets from AB Lifestyles who have both top and fitted bottom sheets for Oliver Mattresses in a variety of colors. https://www.ablifestyles.net/road-ready-rv-sheet-set/
  5. Are you looking for the location in x/y on the mattress of that little dot for the radius? If overall width is 29.88 and R is 16.25, then the little dot is located at an X distance of (29.88-16.25) or 13.63 from the left side of the cushion...and since it's also at the radius the Y distance from the top of the cushion is 16.25.
  6. Adding on to Topgun2 comment: As you know there are a few parts to the full lashup. The receiver that is on your tow vehicle...it has a rating... The hitch assembly that plugs into that receiver...various classes Weight Distribution Assembly ( bars or in the case of Anderson the torsion chains) Anti Sway Device - (sometimes slider bars, in the case of anderson the Hitch Ball is in a sleeve which provides anti sway.) You may want to look in your manual and at the actual receiver and see if there is a tag like the one below from our F150. In our case, it was on the body of the hitch receiver. It states the hitch capacity towing with or without with a weight distribution setup. For the example below it says specifically if you are towing * without a weight distribution hitch it has a 500 LB MAX tongue wt. * with a weight distribution hitch it has a 1220 LB MAX tongue wt. My Elite II has a 630 LB tongue wt so I must use the WDH to avoid overloading that actual receiver assembly. Hope that helps...set context ctshort09 (Galway Girl)
  7. Thanks to you for this string...and Patriot's link to the Mouser site...I ordered 2 extra sets. Hope you find the solution to the issue soon. Craig
  8. I ordered mine directly from the RV Snappad company website. They are the Mini 6" size for the oliver. They don't have the Olivers listed. I plan to send them the video and confirm they worked on our 2019 Elite II. You should measure the diamater of the feet on your own oliver before buying....I'm pretty sure the feet on the stabilizers are consistent, but just check the diameter before you buy. CS
  9. I bought a set of RV Snappads and installed them with no trouble on the Oliver Stabilizers. Here's an install video I made to show you how easy it was. RVSnappad.mp4
  10. The etrailer site says the Better Weigh is exactly the same as the Haul Gauge, just rebranded as a Curt towing product. The curt product comes with a lifetime warranty. CS
  11. Thanks John...that youtube is here: Repairing Maxxair with Condensation Issues
  12. Backup Cam: From Oliver: We have the one supplied by Oliver as an option. The camera needs 12V power, and is all wired in by Oliver. The connectivity between the camera and the display is wireless. We have always had good reception between the "camera" and the display unit. The camera as installed by Oliver is wired to a power switch located on the panel just inside the Oliver entry door. To make the camera work, we turn on that switch, then plug the camera into a 12v outlet on the dash. I like the display suction cup mounted in the upper left corner of the drivers side windshield. I like the unit as it gives me view behind the trailer while driving down the highway as well as when backing up. As far as new trucks that have "trailer camera" connections...I think some assume there is a wire coming from the back up camera, to the truck connections. Also I've noticed that in Ford the new - customer placed trailer camera viewing is only available at slow speeds and when backing...it's NOT available while driving. It has a long cable that runs from the camera all the way back to the truck. SEE below... In the GM /Chevy lineup the trailer Camera View is available at highway speeds and can in fact be one of the views in the "electronic" rear view mirror. It appears to be a dealer installed option.
  13. Answers to your questions depend on you use case for mobile data: Some considerations and a quick table I made to show the differences... A key resource for all of us who are going to be mobile, and want to use internet on the road. This site was started by some previous Oliver owners...who were living the life of mobile technical writers. Since then, they've grown their YouTube and Blog on Mobile Internet into their main line of business. They do reviews of various types of BOOSTERS for CELL and WIFI and discuss the differences and why each is needed. They also describe many different use cases for RV's. From full time to part time, mobile workers to occasional travelers. They review and track the various data plans by Carrier, AT&T, Verizon etc...and tell which is the best value, has best coverage.

  14. Very cool...like the simplicity and dual use of your crate fitting between the two filters as a stand!
