  1. Neuman's comments are 'right on the money'. Gelcoat on boats (same as Oliver) commonly can be buffed and waxed to like new for easily 25+ years. The next step is painting with something like AwlGrip or AwlCraft and your ready for next 20 years.
  2. UPDATE :: The RubberMaid containers can be used several different ways to make temporary doggy bed . . . . Thanks! I got the distance between hallway walls ( aprox 29") using the 3D Tour measurement tool and cross-checking/verify by looking at width of Std Layout table ( 29.75") which is wider than opening so as to be supported in the edge groove/slots. My first attempt to use the 3D measure yesterday yielded a 25" measure but that was at bottom all the way back where corners are all curved ???? 25" to 29" ???? ****************** end update ************************* VERY Helpf
  3. This picture is me ( Rosie Dog ) dreaming about the OTT EII we will be picking up very soon. ( early March 2021 ) My people friends ( George & Marybeth ) are trying to imagine what my sleeping arrangements will be and could use a couple of measurements that were not to be found in the Oliver University Measurement Document. I had a nightmare the other night that instead of being with my pack sleeping in a warm cuddly pile I was outside chained to a picnic table. Makes realize how lucky I am that while too many of my kin folk have to endure such challenging and sometimes dangerous cond
  4. We have fallen in love with the Lynx Leveling blocks and chocks. A pkg of 10 flat blocks that stack and interlock and a couple chocks that have the same interlocking fit. There seem to be a couple of popular brands but since we did our first 10,000+mi with the Lynx and they worked so well, I guess we are now Lynx-for-Life.
  5. Mostly just what 'Jairon' said . . . . . . . When the power factor is one ( 1.0 ) the electrical load is using all the energy. In a DC circuit ( battery for example ) all the current that flow through the load does some measurable work. PF =1.0 An AC circuit may be pure resistance PF=1.0 , like an old fashioned space heater that glows orange. Nothing tricky or weird happening there. All the electrons that flow through that resistance ( nichrome wire ) do work >> make heat & orange light and that's the end of it. HOWEVER, when PF < 1.0 . . . like a running a mo
  6. (1) How difficult to future pull wires and piping/tubing ? (2) What standard wiring is put in place in all trailer builds for electronics options even if they are NOT purchased from 'Oliver Trailer'. . . . Helpful to know for owners that might need to do aftermarket install of some electronics ? *************************** - (1) I was wondering about asking for empty sections of PEX tubing to be left in place during the build as conduit for future installs of wire , tubing etc. / / / / Perhaps this is overkill as it might be just as easy for us to do ourselves. . . . Any though
  7. ?? TWO Lagun Base mounts : both curb and street side ?? Has anyone (with the wonderful Overland designed Lagun base for Oliver Twin beds) installed TWO mounts for positioning table mount either on curb or the street side ?? All photos I have seen so far show it mounted on the street side We are just finishing up our build list for spring 2021 delivery of a Elite_II and as we prepare to order parts for a self install of Overland table base we wonder should we make two base mounts (right and left). The Lagun table is AMAZING and after about 15,000 miles in a teardrop with a Lagun we a
  8. On the list for OTT EII 2021 delivery in March. Thanks to everyone who is contributing to this topic, it has been much on our minds. We are planning on starting off with our existing 2018 Tacoma Long Bed off-road realizing that is not ideal for all conditions. (1) It's paid for, we love it , (2) Why rush into a major expense upfront if we don't absolutely have to. Give it a while to simmer as we gain experience with the OTT EII while watching others and looking and learning. (3) Our dream two vehicle at this point seems to be a 3/4T Sprinter long wheelbase 4WD and that's a big decisi
  9. >> How to utilize the existing black water tank (deposit liquids) from the bath/shower space in the case where a composting toilet is fitted ? (0) I am assuming that depositing partially treated urine or other liquids into the black tank could be a benefit in some situations. *************** I have the thought that a flat box (rectangular hollow and slightly bigger than the footprint of the composting toilet) can be constructed that :: (1) will increase the height of the composting toilet ( ? 1.5 to 3 inches ?) and I acknowledge the extra height is a challenge.
