  1. Our F150 requires a WDH for tongue weights over 500 lbs (no mention of the trailer weight). Toyota is only concerned with the trailer weight?
  2. It's down by the furnace ducting... I have to move the duct to see the brass valve.
  3. We've had a few VERY minor issues. Oliver has very promptly helped us diagnose and fix all of them. Super impressed with service at Oliver and couldn't be happier with our trailer.
  4. Different perspective on the convection oven... when we have shore power, we use the oven all-the-time! It does a great job baking - bread, cookies, cake, pie etc. We don't use the microwave function much, but it IS handy for a quick warm-up once in a while. Overall, it's much more valuable to us than extra storage. 🙂 EDIT: it ALSO functions as extra storage. We keep pots, pans, tortillas, bread etc. in the oven when not in use.
  5. We used Painted Cowboy (Daniel Jakus) to haul ours to Denver where we met him and picked up the Olly (we're from central Oregon). He's hauled lots of Oliver trailers and was very professional and his rates were reasonable Saved us a trip across the mid-west last summer, which was totally worth it. I feel like Oliver did a very thorough job inspecting our trailer, we only found one slightly loose screw on a drawer latch. Before picking up the trailer, we checked out all the info here in the forum, videos and Oliver University, which left us well prepared to begin traveling i
  6. Also, if your gray tank is mostly full, the Olly might be slightly nose down. Raising the nose a bit fixed it for us.
  7. Just checked my shackles, one had almost completely backed out. Thanks for the prompt to check them!
  8. If the plastic shards are coming from the fresh water tank, it's hard to imagine they made it past the hose and filter and pump. Jason has indicated that this is a problem they've had in the past, and that they have systems in place to mitigate, but has escalated the issue to quality control. (Oliver service, and Jason specifically, has been absolutely exemplary in ALL our interactions, by the way) Seems like most people only get a few shards in their filter (though, I bet they haven't checked that connector hose). Hopefully we're an outlier case.
  9. Resurrecting an older thread. We've had our Elite II for a year now, never had trouble with the water system, except the pump seemed to be pretty loud (our first RV, so no other experience to draw from) and the flow was never what I would call strong. However, on our latest trip, the water pressure took a very noticeable drop. On Jason's advice, I checked the water filter and it was half full of the white plastic shards. Cleaned it out and reinstalled, but the problem persisted. Turns out, the 1' of braided hose connecting the fresh tank to the pump was also packed with the plastic.
  10. Ours is a 2019 and we had no issues with it camping above 10,700 feet, overnights in the high 30's, in WY last summer.
  11. I have the Haul Gauge. It works well and is reasonably accurate. The scale gauge graphic is an analog representation with few markings. This is deliberate since the results are NOT as precise as CAT scales (I spoke the the developers to confirm). No CAT scales near me, so this was my only way to get a baseline.
  12. Did you replace the bathroom faucet with this one, or the kitchen? If the former, does it work well for the shower?
  13. 2018 F-150 Platinum - short bed - 3.5 Ecoboost - Max Tow package - FX4 Offroad package - Leer cap. Flat road towing gets around 14 mpg, unhitched getting about 19. We swapped out the stock tires for burly E-rated tires, this made a huge difference in the ride (for the better). 45psi front, 50 back, Olly at 55psi. 1411 lbs official payload is 'just' enough to cover our needs, no extra capacity. CAT scales show 3280 lbs front, 4100 rear, 5740 trailer, 13120 gross weight (trailer with full water, empty gray and black). (This puts us over the 7000 gvw for the truck by 380 lbs
  14. Does anyone have a good candidate for a replacement faucet? Current one uses a LOT of water, hard to control, difficult to 'pause' during shower and return to the same temperature!
