  1. 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
  2. Also, if your gray tank is mostly full, the Olly might be slightly nose down. Raising the nose a bit fixed it for us.
  3. Just checked my shackles, one had almost completely backed out. Thanks for the prompt to check them!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Did you replace the bathroom faucet with this one, or the kitchen? If the former, does it work well for the shower?
  9. 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
  10. 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!
  11. Is this the first experience you've had with a MaxxFan? If so... We've had two (in different campers) and they both made a VERY loud sound when opening, which does sound like it's struggling. It's the same noise opening and closing. Toured another Oliver recently, and the first thing they asked was if our fan made the same noise (it does). We DID have an issue with the motor making a pronounced ticking noise when running, we contacted MaxxFan and they sent us a replacement motor which cured that problem. So, if you know the fan is acting oddly, their service department was very
  12. We just had the service done (currently staying in Phoenix AZ). Dexter was great, very responsive. They helped us find a local service provider and worked directly with the one we chose to confirm the service and handle payment. As pleasant as it could be under the circumstances. For what it's worth, none of the nuts were loose when I inspected before the service (I also found the bottom nuts to be difficult to access).
  13. I like your vent solution, Mainiac. Airflow into the bath is MUCH less than the main cabin, but it's enough to take the chill off. We mostly travel in warmer weather and keep both roof vents open all the time anyway. If it's a cold day and we want more heat circulation in the bath, turning the door handle to the lock position before closing creates enough of an air gap to keep things flowing between rooms.
  14. We just experienced a gray tank backup into the shower pan (we can see the water level right at the top of the drain). We've been in the same camping spot for a week. The tank level was at 88%, so we weren't worried. Found this thread with the forum search. Checked the level on the trailer and found that during the week, the trailer had settled into a nose down (1" low) position. I raised the front into a 1" high orientation, and after some initial gurgling into the shower pan, the water level dropped back down the drain. Noticed the other tank levels also changed sign
  15. We were having trouble with the little flow management fins in the furnace ducts rotating themselves closed, so I decided to fix them in place in the open position. In the process, I inadvertently popped the cover off (figured it was fixed into the ring, it's not) and was able to simply remove the flow reducers (they just pop out). Popped the directional louver covers back in place so we can still channel the airflow direction and keep things out of the ducts. An unexpected (but in hindsight, obvious) benefit is that the airflow is less restricted which makes the furnace MUCH q
