  1. The water is on today πŸ™‚. We will be leaving tomorrow.
  2. Hi Don, We asked OTT to de-winterize ours prior to delivery but it was not done. Our walk through person told us that even if you request de-winterization it will not be done at this time of the year. Our guide repositioned the valves for us and we did it after arriving at our overnight spot at OTT. We filled the fresh water tank, checked the water level indicator for operation, turned the water pump on, and flushed out all the lines including the outdoor shower. The anti-freeze just goes to the gray water tank and we''ll dump tomorrow before we leave, and make sure the gray and black tank blade valves work ok (we don't need that unexpected surprise later down the road πŸ™‚ ). Good luck! John
  3. Expecting delivery day after tomorrow πŸ™‚
  4. Where in SC? We are in Pinopolis, by Lake Moultrie πŸ™‚
  5. Whoa...pickup a week from today (13th). Glad the weather seems to be moderating. Thanks for the update πŸ™‚
  6. 13th for us with 996 hull, have fun...may see you at camp πŸ™‚
  7. Foy's shower mat for ours we hope to take possession of in Jan 2022 πŸ™‚
  8. Happy Thanksgiving ya'll πŸ™‚
  9. We were originally 13 Jan, then 5 Jan, and now back to 13 Jan...hull 996. We hope for no more changes and think OTT must be doing the best they can, considering supply issues. That's as of 22 Nov. Happy Holidays ya'll πŸ™‚ John
  10. Congratulations you two!!! We're very happy for ya'll πŸ™‚ Lol on the drain valve...if that's the only thing that went wrong, I'd say you were off to a fabulous start! Jason, our salesman, called us today, as we were on the road back to S.C., and asked us if we could move our delivery date UP to 5 Jan (from 13 Jan). I thought "is this a trick question?" Well, of course!!!! Wendy and I wish you the best of times in your new "Lucy", and hope to meet up with you one day πŸ™‚
  11. Mike and Carol, did you walk the "red path of pain" trail, as I call it, and experience all those exercise apparatuses along the way? πŸ™‚
  12. We were there last year on 4th of July and I'll tell you there are a LOT of fireworks shot off from the surrounding communities; It was like a grand finale that lasted 4 or 5 hours...really cool! BTW we were in the other, smaller "B" camp πŸ™‚
  13. We're excited for ya'll πŸ™‚ Hope all goes well! We're a little behind you with a mid January pickup...thanks for your help πŸ™‚ John
  14. We met an Oliver family a couple days ago in South Dakota who picked up their Oliver over a year ago and relayed they had no problems since. That is encouraging! Yes, we plan to thoroughly exercise every system/switch/button we can in short order πŸ™‚ and we have no doubt Jason and his team will take care of us!
  15. John, FWIW I agree and will rely on the forum for help to get the most out of our camping experiences. There are quite a few knowledgeable and qualified people, IMO, that give detailed information out to help others. I certainly wish I had options for decor colors other than what's offered, a/c brands that offer quiet operation with a heat strip, electrical system options, and the list goes on. Forum reports on quality control are disconcerting in some instances. We visited production 3 years ago and witnessed much more attention to detail than we did 1 month ago and we realize many businesses are struggling with their workforce stability. But we are hoping to get that top notch hull and frame before that falls by the wayside. I want to add that Jason and his service department are a driving force in our decision to put our 1/2 payment down tomorrow. We love our Casita and will hold onto it for some time in case things don't work out favorably with the Oliver. But if we can tailor the Oliver to what we want, and I most certainly believe we can, our mid-January delivery of "Bessie" will be a wonderful day πŸ™‚
  16. Thanks for the update, Ray and Susan. We elected to go with AGMs and the 2k inverter. OTT had one trailer setup in their showroom as well as one with the big lithiums and the 3k inverter. Every time I visited the showroom, 4 times now, I couldn't get comfortable with the fan noise coming from the 3k. The AGM setup with the 2k inverter was quiet so we elected to go with AGM. To be fair the lithiums were in bulk mode and the 2k was in float so the 2k may very well make as much noise in bulk mode. I'm hoping for quiet as the 2k charges with less amps, 100 vs 150 I believe. We finalize the order next week and pick up in January so I'll post back with my experiences. John
  17. Introduced to walleye last year in Wisconsin just last year, I am a BIG fan!!! πŸ™‚
  18. Hi Jim and Frances. The Keystone link provided me with refreshing, general troubleshooting ideas and was a synergistic post for the 1st half of reading, then devolved as most do without resolution. It helped me with my "little box" thinking. The Easy Start pdf deserves a little more of my time when I experience my problem next time. I would have never thought the Easy Start could have been a suspect as it has been working flawlessly for the past year in my Casita. My transition to the Ollie next year is much anticipated and I actually welcome "some" challenges to keep me busy πŸ™‚, ones that can be resolved, however! Thanks, John
  19. Bill, That is true...no stripes according to my salesman as of 2 weeks ago. John
  20. We saw that on 16 Aug. Could be waiting for the decals as most have none. Earlier this year (April) only one was naked and all others had decals. We ordered our naked as well. And yes, I won't wait to pick up ours even though it be the middle of January πŸ™‚
  21. Ya'll are adventurers for sure! Thanks for sharing...absolutely the places I'd like to travel to some day when I get my next TV. Your photos are indeed inspirational πŸ™‚
  22. Ok, we made our decision. 440ah AGM package and a 2k watt inverter and solar on the roof. Thanks to all for your help πŸ™‚ Pickup in Jan 2022...yeehaw.
