  1. Which toilet is best will depend on your camping style! We have the composting toilet and prefer dry camping at national parks and state parks. The liquid tank lasts about 3 to 4 days and disposing used TP in a bag with a little vinegar helps keeps odor down and your solid tank will last about 3 to 4 weeks depending on usage. As others have said keeping the solids and liquids separate is not a problem. For those that prefer full hookups I think the standard toilet is the way to go, unfortunately regardless of which option you choose the dump station is something you can't get away from.
  2. We have state farm for our insurance needs. $345 a year with $1000 deductible and 5 years coverage for replacement cost. Rates vary depending your state and area you live in.

  4. I also use the TST tpms system on my 2021 E II . Easy to set up and and no communication issues without using the repeater. Satisfied customer!
  5. I am thinking of purchasing a Calmark cover, for those that have one, what do you use to cover the solar panels sharp edges with and wi fi ranger antennas.
  6. We have a 2021 Elite II and our propane alarm malfunctioned on our 3 outing this summer, it has a different sensor than the Dometic but after 3 hard resets it has not sounded off. The remnants of Fred had dumped 3.5" of rain where we camped so maybe the humidity was the problem.
  7. We picked up 833 on June 25th, While traveling I left the fridge on auto and it ran on propane just fine, I experimented with manual set on propane and experienced the fail code as you have experienced! With the fridge set on auto and the gas turned off it selected DC while traveling and we noticed the temperature rose to the point that the frozen food was starting to thaw so you may want to leave the fridge on auto and the gas on when traveling or purchase a 12V compressor fridge to keep perishable items in! Just my experience, hope this helps. So far all the systems on the olie have worked as intended. good luck and safe travels.
  8. You may want to check the fitment on the screen door, mine had a 1/4 gap in the top half of the door and let all kinds of bugs in before I found where they were coming from, I opened a ticket on it but the repair that was recommended did not work so I purchased auto/marine weather stripping, also check your tire pressures mine came in at 52 to 83 PSI and check for over spray of gel coat on your wheels and center caps, I still have to clean that mess up!
  9. I retired from the railroad. Debbie and I use railroad train movement (lamp) hand signals, if dark with flashlight, for backing, move forward, and stop. If more than one person tries to give signals or person giving signals is out of sight, the Ollie movement stops. We don't worry about air brake application, hand brake application, and release air brake signals! 😁 Thanks for the tip! My wife and I will be practicing the hand signals routine before our pick up date next month.
  10. If you look closely at the photo the Legacy Elite decal gives its identity away!
  11. In the resent past I have used Cycle trader and Craigs list to sell 2 motorcycles. I was inundated with scam phone calls and texts, both sold but less than 10% of interested buyers showed up for their appointment so be patient and don't go out of your way for anyone! You have a beauty full trailer for sale. Good luck
  12. I was thinking about installing shut off valves for the out side shower and then placing a T valve behind them to either blow them out with air or fill with anti freeze, that way winter camping will avoid any frozen lines, and to winterize the entire system simply open up the valves and fill with antifreeze. What would be a safe pressure to blow out the short section of water line?
  13. I have to agree the site lacks search and book mark features resulting in a lot of repetitive questions and frustration on the part of current owners who prefer to discuss the latest mods they just performed, its interesting to see how ingenious owners of these trailers have become, but on the other hand how much did you know when you purchased your first travel trailer? I agree youtube can answer just about every question about RV life and provide product reviews on a broad number of RV must haves, but all of this can overwhelm a newbie! Understanding weight distribution and how it affects towing, what size TV will best fit my needs, understanding solar and battery power management, composting toilets are just some topics better left to google search and youtube! I have never owned a trailer or towed one but I feel confident reading topics from this site will always benefit my RV travels.
  14. Wow that says a lot about OTT commitment to customer satisfaction. I bet sending a mobile tech out wasn't cheap.
  15. Bill your probably correct and I will ask the orientation crew if the mind me using their bay, my reasoning for going to Walmarts was so I won't appear rude or disrespectful of their process and knowledge. Thanks Gary
