  1. We live <6 miles (as the crow flies) from the Lost Dutchman State Park. Looks like a beautiful park, but we haven't camped quite that close to home in the Oliver...yet.
  2. Well it took ~15 seconds to fully open the cover. After taking apart and lubricating I can now fully open then fully close in ~15 seconds. Before and after videos attached. Not sure how the noise level of the fan compares to others. AF26ACAE-E520-4482-A0BF-FF56435C2233.MOV EFCA7FD1-CC09-4867-AC18-D3E38C5972B2.MOV
  3. Thanks for the responses. I don't feel the noise is excessive. I'm thinking the lift gear powered by the lift motor may just need some grease. I'll try that and if no improvement I'll shoot a video and provide a time from close to open for comparison with others.
  4. Yes, that is what I'm referring to. In talking to someone today I was told they prevent the springs from "walking" and therefore getting out of alignment with each other. Without, if they do get out of alignment you run the risk of breaking a [portion of a] spring.
  5. I've noticed a few of the leaf spring (rebound?) clips on our axle are missing. Should I reach out to Dexter for replacements? Are there some "universal" replacements available? How critical is it to replace those which are missing? Darren
  6. With starting to use our recently purchased Oliver I'm discovering some little things to get some thoughts on, which I'll post separately. Our MaxxFan, even when on shore power, seems to labor when opening like the little engine that could. It does completely open and run, eventually... It's as if we're running on battery and it's not getting enough juice. Would this brief description be similar to others' experience with theirs or could there be an issue with ours? Darren
  7. I'm still a little green having purchased ours in October, but I feel like I've read every thread (although only retained a fraction of the information). Depending on timing and location, I'm happy to meet you when you're picking it up to answer any questions I can. Darren
  8. Thanks Bill. I'll reach out to Matt. In their defense, each time I've asked it was a "by the way, any chance I can get..." while we were in the middle of discussing an issue or I was in the process of purchasing a part, so it most likely was just forgotten. Darren
  9. Congratulations. We’re in Arizona (Mesa) and have a 2014, hull #62! If you need any assistance being so far away I’m happy to help in anyway I can. I’ve asked someone at Oliver for a hull plaque a couple times and in spite of them saying they would send it I haven’t yet... Darren
  10. We stayed at Catalina State Park in early December and enjoyed it. Beautiful views of the Catalinas, numerous nice hiking trails. In spite of the entrance to the park being directly across from a shopping center it’s quiet. Bathrooms were clean. If WiFi is needed the antenna is located near the restroom in loop B (we stayed in Loop A near the restroom and the signal was zero to unusable). Pics from our stay in Catalina below. While Picacho Peak State Park is close to the highway and therefore has some noise, it is a very clean park and if you like hiking it has some beautiful (and challenging) hiking trails. I haven’t stayed at Lost Dutchman, but I can vouch for the views. I live 10 minutes from the park!
  11. When we were looking at purchasing our used Oliver the owner mentioned they had towed it in the past with a Tacoma. I assumed she really meant a Tundra, or was trying to overcome the concern I had with our Jeep. Later I ran across a picture from a few years back of their trailer connected to a Tacoma, and I also ran across the article below. I don't believe it or our Jeep Gladiator is a very capable truck for towing this much weight (and limited payload capacity), but it can do it as you experienced. We originally purchased the Gladiator for off-road driving and occasionally hauling items in the bed of the truck (furniture, trips to Goodwill, etc). The 3rd use was towing a trailer, but at that point we were thinking a teardrop. It then evolved to a LE1 (after learning about the quality differences) and then the used LE2 popped up. We couldn't pass it up so we pulled the trigger. I assume at some point we'll make a change with our TV but we're not retired so our use will be limited at this point anyways.
  12. I’m opening myself up for ridicule, but here’s my current tow vehicle. Long story how we ended up with this vehicle and an Oliver, but had it been planned out better we wouldn’t have paired these two together (Jeep came first in July with no intention of getting a LE2, let alone an Oliver which we got in Oct). Loaded with LP, water, misc payload in the trailer and Jeep, I’m just under the max on GCVWR, payload and tw. We’ve taken it on a couple trips so far, but no significant elevation climbs. But I know when that happens I’ll be in the right lane with the semi’s climbing the hill...
  13. Sharing pics of a lagun table installed in our Oliver. If we were ordering new (or select in our used purchase) we would have looked for a twin bed model, but we have the standard floor plan. We’re not a fan of leaving the queen bed made or leaving the large dinning table up, as it consumes so much space and feels more open without. Therefore we installed a lagun table. If my to-do list wasn’t so long I would have made the table top, but opted for the manufactures tabletop (beautiful, but pricey).
  14. Anyone have any idea what is (or could be) used to attach the inside “chrome” trim piece that covers the seam between the upper and lower inner hull? I tried 3m double-sided foam tape. It wasn’t thick enough, so tried a double layer of it, but as suspected it didn’t hold. The material originally used has some thickness to it and has great holding strength.
  15. Is the hull number part of the vin #? For example, the last 3 digits of the vin would indicate the hull number? Or are they completely unrelated?
