  1. Has anyone found a source for the little suction cups and clips? One of ours got pulled out and the clip disappeared.
  2. The Truma gas only endless water heater. Seems to work great so far.
  3. Regarding the fridge, I’m new to having all this luxury as I camped out of tents and a slightly converted Utility trailer - no fridge. So are you saying at a campground with electric you run the fridge on propane? The fridge works better on gas that electric?
  4. I have Oliver 555 and both Honda 2200i generators, the std. one and the “companion” that has a std. duplex outlet and a 30amp outlet (L5-30). That 30 amp outlet requires a basic adapter to allow the male end of the Oliver supplied power cord to plug into the adapter. For a first trial trial I started the Companion generator by itself using the 30 amp connection with adapter and then connected the Oliver with its supplied cord. I got no power and the E2 Open ground code on the EMS. I Shut the generator down, unplugged at the Ollie and then added a neutral ground plug to its duplex outlet. Restarted the Generator and replugged in the cord to the Oliver. EMS takes a pause before allowing power the connected showing E0, Normal Operating Condition. Being that the Oliver is new, Nov. 25th, I then tested the easy start, fridge and air conditioning. Everything worked as advertised. I cycled the air conditioning temp up and down and watched the EMS which would see amperage as high as 18amps when the air was cooling with the fridge cooling. So I did not run the microwave at the same time not problem would I. Therefore I can’t see hauling the second gen and hooking it in parallel at any time so I didn’t see any value in testing the combination. Any thoughts?
  5. Checked our #555 which we got a month ago (750 miles to date). Of the sixteen fasteners, 3 were sufficiently torqued. The remainder were somewhere between 20-35 ft lbs estimated. I tightened these in prep for a trip across the state this Saturday. First things I noted was that the fastener is a closed end “cap nut” similar to a lug nut and made of plain steel (all had a nice coat of surface rust already). Also the nuts on the axle straps already rusty. Seems like a better touch for a premium product would to use corrosion protected fasteners or at least clean and hit these with flat black corrosion paint after assembly.
  6. No doubt it’s fun to drive. My 2010 F-150 literally weighed about 900 lbs more so if you hammer the new truck it is a blast! But I did not think I was buying a 6000 lb trailer (loaded) when I bought it. I’ll probably run it about 45-50k miles and get a GMC Duramax or a Ford diesel. My issue is my garage is only 20 ft deep so a short bed something is a must.
  7. Not too surprised and thanks for responding. I heard it said the engine is all economy or it’s all boost, depending on driving conditions. I have ban keeping my trucks 7-8 years and 150k miles but think I’m going the run 3-4 years and trade it model for a change. I spent a lot on tires, brakes, etc. on high mile trucks in the past.
  8. We are taking the factory tour next Friday! We have a seven month old F-150 with the Echoboost, 10 speed and 3.55 axle. What has been your impression of your truck pulling the Ollie?
