  1. Depends on use, we changed our filter twice last year as we stayed at over 22 CGs. We don’t drink water from our fresh water tank but do use it for showers. We carry 1 gallon jugs for our drinking water. Hope this helps.
  2. We have just the solution for deer and it’s the best homemade chili we have ever enjoyed. Blessed with an amazing season last year with a total of (5) in the deep freeze. That is our deer 🦌 story and we are sticking to it. 😄
  3. I had just about the same experience with Oliver Service as our radio not not playing CD’s. Fortunately it still did eject the CD. Contacted Oliver as we were still under our 1 barely under our year warranty. Jason sent out a new old stock radio which I installed. I sent the old one back pre paid shipping and the new one works as it should. Out of warranty it would have been spendy to replace. The quality of the Furion radio is ok, I think a higher quality radio for what one pays for an Oliver should come standard.
  4. That is correct always bypass the Truma when winterizing. I also bypass the Truma when I sanitize my fresh water tank and plumbing system.
  5. Indeed, thanks! The trout fishing was ok too!
  6. Ollie in the wild!! Enjoying several days of Blue Ridge Mountain camping fun and a little trout fishing on the Toe River. We really enjoy like Mountain River Family CG and one of the nicest in the the Blue Ridge, so we are back again. A little fire side fresh venison chili from last falls hunt was perfect for last nights dinner at 51 degrees. We give this CG ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🤩. The owners are awesome folks who camp and know what campers enjoy. Happy Camping!
  7. An interesting photo is that wild white rose? 😊
  8. David Peters, Here is an option, not cheap and I am not so sure how well it would work on gravel. https://parkit360.ca/collections/trailer-dollies?utm_campaign=**LP+-+NonTM+-+General+-+US&utm_term=trailer mover&utm_source=adwords&utm_medium=ppc&hsa_kw=trailer mover&hsa_acc=4630284090&hsa_mt=p&hsa_grp=125520177799&hsa_tgt=kwd-389207204846&hsa_src=g&hsa_cam=14379722857&hsa_net=adwords&hsa_ad=540856145407&hsa_ver=3&gclid=CjwKCAjwjtOTBhAvEiwASG4bCGqQikNdOUByI8n0loaLWdphea4wj9ANsf40nwbEvNErO0qc8Ej7qRoC2z8QAvD_BwE
  9. Steve, When you said threading a needle this comes to my mind….or me actually trying to tie a fishing knot.
  10. Mark, I run a Weber Q1200 grill and when needed an LP campfire ring. It beats looking at the ground. 😄Both of those required me to remove the factory regulators and just install quick connects. I simply attach my LP hose to the Oliver quick connect and use the grill or the campfire ring. I also have a Honda eu3000is which I converted to LP using the HutchMountain.com conversion kit. This conversion requires a separate regulator to an independent LP tank so that I can push a button on the regulator and start or prime the LP into the carb. I really like the Hutch Mountain tri conversion and carrying zero gasoline and it burns cleaner. The gen will use three different fuel sources - LP, LNG, or gasoline. I have not tried running the Honda off the Ollie yet as it is newly converted. I hope this helps. Others may chime in with further knowledge. David
  11. Thanks Bill, Just finished the downloads! 👍🏻
  12. Beautiful photos and just love the title “enough tech talk - go camping”. 👍🏻😎 Thank you for sharing as we are reeeally looking forward to mid western travels.
  13. Last May Oliver service replaced our awning seal under warranty and they also drilled out our awning brackets so they drain properly and they now do. The new awning seal was installed just low enough that there is no longer an issue with water puddling and water drains off as it should. When washing the roof of our Oliver I did not see any water puddling along the awning seal or brackets as it just drains off the rear of the trailer as designed. When I wash and detail our Ollie I usually have it a little nose high to facilitate water draining off the roof area. The water also drains off when the Ollie is level. I am fine with how the new seal works now. Regular washing keeps the seal and roof area nice and clean.
  14. Bill, Northern tool might have what you are looking for. https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/category_tires-wheels+hand-truck-utility-wheels
  15. We traveled last summer and stayed at 22 Campgrounds through 16 states and never carried or even missed having a tote tank. Honestly never really needed it. I guess we are spoiled by full hook ups and CG with dump stations.
  16. We received manuals with our 2020 on delivery day. They travel with us!
  17. Steve, We look forward to this! The more we learn the better it gets! -David
  18. I spoke with Diana at Calmark regarding cleaning the Calmark cover and she sent this attached info to me. And yes we have the black streaks aka air pollution on our cover as well. She said not to place the cover in a washing machine as it will remove the chemicals or special additives that help with repelling water. I attached the tips and info which she emailed to me today. I hope this helps. 887450757_TipsandInfomationforyourCalMarkCover.pdf
  19. Our 2020 did not come with a bonding plug.
  20. The short answer is yes. Here a little helpful info - https://www.rvtravel.com/rv-electricity-companion-bonding-plug/
  21. Mark and Cyndi, Congratulations on your new rig and most of all to good health! May all your adventures be happy, safe miles and smiles! A very nice choice in TV vehicle as well! 😊 Onward! - David
  22. Foy, Amazing work, you sir are a fine craftsman! I hope to meet you at the upcoming rally. -David
  23. Congrats on your long well worth it wait! We look forward to seeing you at the Rally! Safe Travels!
  24. Ollie time! Congrats and happy travels!
  25. Bill, I am very happy with these “Rock Stoppers” they are made by Livelymachine.com and are designed Super Duty specific. I don’t know if they fabricate Rock Stoppers for other trucks. I can report they work excellent and protect the front of our Ollie and keep it clean. If anyone has questions PM me.
