  1. I’ve done this too. Pretty easy! thanks for the advice!
  2. Am I misremembering, or does Oliver offer yearly checkups, maintenance at their factory? I have no desire to learn how to wax, reseal, change bearings, grease wheels, etc. I’m totally fine with all the inside fixes I need to do and have done, but I don’t have much free time for the outside stuff. I thought I remembered hearing that you could bring the Oliver (for a fee of course) to Hohenwald to get these things done. Seems like it would make a nice trip as well?
  3. I was actually coming here for advice. We rarely freeze in Louisiana. We will be getting into 28 degrees this Monday though for half a day. Do you think this is something I should worry about? I left a tank of fresh water in the Ollie on our last trip.
  4. My wife made this awesome Christmas card for us! It features us, our many pets, and of course, our Oliver! Feel free to check out more of her work at hannahgumbo.com
  5. I’m not sure which light this means… sorry! Do you happen to have a photo? Also, water gets in from a tail light?!
  6. So no buffer, compound, polishing? Just wash, then wax by hand?
  7. Where do you inspect to prevent leaks. Is this just making sure the window seals weep holes are clear?
  8. In case anyone is interested. This company came inadvertently recommended to by Jason over at Oliver. The detailer he recommended uses their products so this is why I say inadvertently. I spoke with Christian on the phone, who can be seen in this video using Glidecoat's cermaic coat on a 12 year old RV. He recommends the 30' DIY kit and says that it is pretty simple to use. I mentioned to him my hesitancy about doing this DIY and he assured me that it would not be too difficult + would not need to worry if I also used this buffer, as it wouldnt be powerful enough to damage the Oliver clear coat easily: https://www.autogeek.net/porter-cable-buffer-value-kit.htmls DIY Product link: https://www.glidecoat.com/product/rv-ceramic-top-coating-kit/ The total price to do this DIY would be around 700-800 dollars including the buffer. Then, every 2-3 years it would require me doing the re-coating which he told me should not be as labor as intensive after the first round.
  9. Well it didnt take long for me to figure this out either. I just spoke with Jason over at Oliver and he balked at that price as well. He said many customers have called asking about the cremaic / marine coat and he reccomends it if I can afford it. He said he has never heard of anyone paying that high. 2,500 was the highest he heard of.... the lowest price he heard was $750. He is kindly going to get me in touch with some possible connections here in Louisiana to get that job done. Thanks for the advice!
  10. So while researching the price of waxing our camper (I’m not sure I trust myself to do it) I was recommended by a local boat/rv detailer to put a marine coating on our trailer. He said this coating would last at the very least 3 years, and would not require waxing, only requirement is the usual washing, and wiping down with a compound after. He mentioned that the wax eventually just melts off in our sun and heat here in Louisiana and has seen a lot of success with the marine coating. His price was 3,600 which doesn’t sound terrible if it means I don’t have to wax. Anyone have experience with this? Would this void our fiberglass warranty? What would you do?
  11. You did all of this from that one small duct vent hole on the floor?!
  12. I guess I’m slightly upset with the Oliver service department though. I called them last week about this issue and they suggested I remove a fitting and fiddle around with a toothpick or wire in the hole. They never suggested I lift the actual Oliver with a jack!
  13. I really wish I would have read this forum post before trying to do this… I ended up trying to replace a couple of the zirk fittings because they wouldn’t take the grease when screwed in, but would when by themselves. I even bought a device to “unstick” zirks. All I needed to do was jack up that part of the trailer… well, you win some, you lose some
  14. Yes, I got a used Anderson from a user on this forum and Oliver installed it (for a fee) when we picked up the trailer. The hitch on the F150 states that a WD hitch is needed for anything over 5,000 lbs. We’ve already traveled about 2,500 miles with the Oliver and towing has not been an issue for us yet. We haven’t driven anywhere too hilly or mountainous other than our first two weeks in TN and the truck did well there. I’m eager to test it out in the desert and more mountainous areas of the US.
  15. Trying to find a good set on amazon to no avail, any suggestions for vent/bug screens?
