  1. Also beside a cover I use dielectric grease to keep moisture out of the plug. Should work on bugs too.
  2. Maybe because mind is attached to the basket and higher up than the tongue, but I have no issues with dirt or other debris when traveling.
  3. I have a Coleman Road Trip grill. The regulator is separate and screws into the grill. I ordered a 12' quick connect hose with an adapter that connects to the regulator fitting. You can get multiple accessories including a cook top for skillets and pots. It does take a while to get a 5 qt pot of water to boil.
  4. I have a Coleman Road trip Grill and a Sequoia portable fire ring both have the regulator built into the hose not attached to the thing itself. I had to buy extra hoses for each with quick connect fitting. But I can use either with the quick connect on the trailer or connect to a separate propane tank. There are also kits out there for Weber and Blackstone grills to adapt to quick connects with low pressure.
  5. Speaking of plugged zerks I have one. Looks like it screws out. Are replacements standard that I can find at auto parts or farm supply? Once removed would it be a good idea to clean any gunk behind it? Best way to do that? PS I found a 90 degree tip and it made the job much easier.
  6. Besides the classified on the forum, there are a couple of on line classified sites specific to molded fiberglass trailers. They cater to people selling and looking for Scamps, Casita's, Escapes, and the occasional Oliver. This way you are hitting a more targeted audience who are looking for the same sized and style of your trailer. .
  7. The 1st thing to check is the drain value next to the toilette front wall of the bathroom. Pulled out is open, push in is closed. Should be out in storage so the drain is open. It keeps gray water in the tank from sloshing up into the shower pan when traveling. Any water going down drains backs up quickly if it is shut. If your gray tank is full, you probably do not want to drop any just on the ground at the storage facility. It is frowned upon in most places. The outlet is in the rear bumper and the value behind the hatch that also contains the outside shower. The question would be why the water in the shower when stowed? (Unless you ran some while working in the trailer.
  8. I know this has been covered before, but I was not having success with the search function. I must not be finding the right key words. Does anyone have ideas on a temperature monitoring senor and app on phone to monitor the how hot the trailer is while away? I realize it may depend upon cell service. There are times when we have to leave our dog in the trailer. I have heard stories of a neighbor tripping over the power cord or a power outage at the park. If the AC ever quit for any reason would like a warning to say need to head back to camp. Same would be true in winter, if the furnace quit. Would like to know before the pipes freeze.
  9. I tried the silicone spray method on mine and it helped tremendously. Use very little and a q-tip to spread it around. Cover the area with a rag or paper towel to eliminate over spray.
  10. We think we are going to love it especially when things open back up. Of course it helps that the grandkids are just an hour away and we both ride bikes. We will go back to AR late March to retrieve our Ollie. Coming back through Santa Fe. Another of my favorite places. Then we have additional trips to the mountains this summer.
  11. I bought some support poles, straps, and stakes from Colorado Carefree. If you search for "Support Poles" you will find a thread with ideas. With my system I have had my manual awning out in 20 - 25 mph wind and it was secure. I still would not leave the awing extended when not close to the camp site.
  12. I put them on a wooden workbench too. Was told not to put on concrete floor. But I do not know the reason either.
  13. The propane CO detector and other parasite drains are the issue. You can unhook the batteries but a shut off switch would be better. Still you will be shorting the life of any battery to leave it sitting for long periods. As stated above a small portable solar will keep the batters charged. Unfortunately if solar is not a option in your storage then bring them home. Keep them in the relative warmth of a garage and use trickle chargers.
  14. I have this hitch and really like it. I got it because of two trailers but have since sold my flat bed. Easier to adjust than to switch out a hitch. BTW says my Ollie is just a bit over 500 tongue weight. I recommend a locking pin.
