  1. Yes, I bought a longer one like linked above and a holder that uses a suction cup to attach to the hull. You have to remove the existing hose and attach the new hose to the back of the valve panel in the basement. Had to use some Teflon tape because the threads were not a good match. This thread has a photo of the connection and other useful information.
  2. Pull out the lowest drawer under the sink and check to see if water has collected under the drawer. If the faucet leaks the water may run down the pull out sprayer line and collect on the wood panel under the drawer. The pull out sprayer line on mine is routed through the opening at the back of the drawers so the water did not run into the basement where it could leak out the scuppers. The wood started to macerate and caused a nasty stench, laced with ammonia on hot days. Hopefully this is not the source of the bad odor because it was a mess.
  3. Something else you may want to do is replace the Zamp port screws with pan head #6-1/2" stainless steel screws. Mine rusted and were starting to leave orange rust stains on the hull.
  4. We bought off-the-shelf King size sheets and a heavy slip on mattress cover for our pickup trip. They fit well enough that we still use them. One set of sheets included long pillow covers and we found these slip over each end of the backrest cushion section under the rear window so we can use it as a head board and keep it protected. The slip on style help hold the cushions together well enough that we don't notice the seams very much but it also makes it difficult to access the water valves under them. In cold weather we add some sleeping bags on top and that makes the bed very cozy.
  5. Potentially a Burro, often referred to as a Wonky Donkey.
  6. We use the Hydroblu Pressurized Jerry Can Water Filter. We have a Burke system at home but find the Hydroblu better suited for camping. The particle and carbon filters are modular and can be replaced separately.
  7. For most RV propane regulators the first stage reduces the pressure to between 10 and 15 psi. The second stage reduces the pressure to 11 water column inches, which is about 0.4 psi.
  8. We noticed a white powder which kept coming back in our trailer. When I removed the AC diffuser lots of white powder and larger particles fell out. There was a lot more where the hull had been cut to install the AC. I used a shop vac to remove as much of the debris as I could. I haven't noticed as much powder as before.

  10. The wheel center caps are made by Lionshead. Mine were chrome plated steel which rusted and pitted in six months. I replaced them with the stainless steel version.
  11. The Silver version is also available on Amazon.
  12. After watching that video I took another look at the GiraffeG4. Of course it will only help if the driver slows down to check before it is too late. Most of the vehicles in that video were going too fast to have a chance. Does anyone have any experience with these?
  13. Thank you for starting this thread Trainman. The first and only time we used the AC was a couple of nights on our first outing with the Ollie last October. During that trip there was a popping noise which interrupted my sleep a lot. Initially thought it might be the refrigerator cycling, but did not try to track it down until now. After reading this thread I wondered if the source of the popping was the AC. So I started testing the AC first. After starting my AC it popped in less than ten minutes, then continued to pop about every ten minutes for a couple of hours. It also popped in a couple of minutes after shutting down the AC. As others suggested the simplest explanation appeared to be the diffuser was not able to expand or contract smoothly with changes in temperature. Flexing the edges of the diffuser by pressing different areas produced a lot of popping and crackling and if felt like the edge was grabbing the hull. The diffuser is held in place by eight wood screws and two sheet metal screws. I started backing out each screw a little at a time to see if it would change anything. The pops and crackles were reduced with each iteration. I stopped when a sheet of letter paper could easily slide under all edges. The diffuser is forced to follow the contour of the ceiling so the corners were the last to separate. Immediately after backing out the screws I ran the AC for two hours without popping. Although encouraging I ran the AC a few more hours over a couple of days and still no popping. Now I'm looking at ways the screws can be snugged down without forcing the edges against the ceiling, leaving a thin gap all the way around. The largest gaps occur in the front and back at the center. The back gap is the largest at 2.7mm (measured using two dimes) at the center. I don't think these gaps will cause any issues but maybe a soft gasket could be used to seal these areas. Hopefully others will help confirm whether or not these observations help resolve this issue in their trailers. Suggestions for a permanent fix would also be appreciated. This diagram is from Dometic AC 64767 instructions.
  14. The noise would stop with the bolts that hold the stabilizer and ring were loose. On the last attempt to find a solution I tightened the rear bolt first and the noise stopped. I had also added a couple of drops of silicon lubricant where the stabilizer goes through the hull. I expect the noise to return eventually, but hopefully this will buy some time until I can take it to Oliver for a permanent fix.
  15. Our LEII started creaking and popping very loudly during our second and first long distance trip. Using the steps, moving in the trailer and windy gust made it pop, creak or crackle. After a lot of tracking and trouble shooting it appears the street side stabilizer rubs against the hull in the direction of the wheel well. The trailer makes a good speaker box and amplified this a lot. Just mentioning this so you can look to see if there is something plucking at the hull in the AC area. The popping sound reverberated through the hull so much it was difficult to track down at first. I finally found the source by using a stethoscope.
