  1. Just canceled our stay. Hope we will get to see everyone next year. Thinking we will stay closer to home the next couple of weeks here in the great state of Texas.
  2. Welcome to the Texas Ollie family. We have had our trailer a little less than an year and have been enjoying the many State Parks here in Texas. We too, are headed to CO in July to spend some time in the cooler weather. Perhaps with so many of us going to Colorado this July we will have an opportunity to have an "Ollie Sighting".
  3. All, Quick note back to the other Ollie owners out there to let everyone know the new "longer" shackles arrived on Friday and were installed on Saturday. Happy to report that the installation went fairly easy and the upward travel is now ~1.5" as designed. Thanks again to Jason and his team on getting me the new shackles in a short timeframe and working with me on getting the trailer ready for our next trip.
  4. JD, Excellent post. Just wondering if it might be worth mentioning that the Oliver factory might have incorrectly used the longer shackles on the some LE2 trailers thereby, reducing their upward travel as it is just the opposite situation than using the shorter shackles installed on the LE1. Do you think it might be worth it for the LE2 owners to check their shackle length? Perhaps you can advise as you clearly have a detailed understanding of the LE2 suspension and have put a lot of thought into the design.
  5. Elite I Oliver Owners, Jason confirmed with their QC/Engineering department that the LE1 trailers should have 1.5" of upward travel. Therefore the upward travel on our trailer was not within the design specs. Jason offered to have our trailer inspected by their shop or a local provider to determine what might be our issue. Upon further discussion with Jason and a few more photos sent to him, we quickly determined the source of our issue was the incorrect Dexter Heavy Duty Kit Shackle was used on our single axle setup. The correct shackle kit (K71358) has shackles that are 4 5/8" in le
  6. On our LE1 water will back up in the sink and the shower if the valve is closed. I have not traced it down as to why, but my best guess the valve also blocks in the vent thereby not allowing the water to flow down into the tank. Perhaps the LE2's are piped differently. Easy thing to check the valve position.
  7. Be sure and check to see that you opened the grey water valve in the bathroom. We have forgot to do this when traveling from one site to another and experienced the water backing up in the sink and shower drain. Once opened back up, all flowed well again.
  8. Just normal highway use. Travel from picking up the trailer and a few state parks here in Texas. We do have plans to go to Utah this summer so we are looking to go to somewhat rougher roads hitting the BLM sites.
  9. LongStride, I am surprised I have not heard back from Jason as he normally responds within a couple of days. Perhaps he is on spring break this week. I have included a couple of more pictures of the spring brackets as from my reading, the brackets used impact the amount of "bump clearance" the axle has. Here is a cut and paste from the "Dexter Applications Manual" they have online (dexteraxle.com) "Leaf spring type axles must have sufficient clearance to the frame to operate properly (see Bump Clearance definition). If the spring hangers are too short, the axle may
  10. Just picked up the trailer for another outing this weekend and thought I would included some more recent photos for others to compare with their trailers. As you can see, it has hit a few times and made its mark on the trailer frame bracket. Still waiting on hearing back from Jason on the normal gap. I will advise once I hear something. Mark
  11. LongStride, My intention was not to question the overall design of the suspension system as Oliver has been making these trailers for several years without a bunch of complaints from other owners out there. When we bought ours, we realized we were not buying an overland rig to take to the "outback" so to speak. Like you, my wife and added the options needed for us to take some off the beaten path to boondock from time to time. We have utilized our trailer for multiple trips and have not really had any major problems with any suspension systems other than a squeak we developed after t
  12. Quick question for other Newer Elite 1 owners out there: Have you looked at your suspension and noted the distance between the upper u-bolts and the frame of the trailer? When looking at mine, I measure about 1/2" between the u-bolt and the trailer on ours with the trailer empty. Does this sound correct to the other "experts" out there? I noticed where the u-bolts have hit a few times but with the trailer only having 3k highway miles on it , I am not sure it will be indicative of future wear when boon docking more. The picture I had on this computer was from when we first got the tr
  13. That is the exact same site that was assigned to us for our first couple of nights after initial pickup. We called and extended our stay another night just in case we needed to follow-up with Oliver on any issues that might arise. Excellent spot and easy access to bathrooms. Enjoy the stay.
  14. Bill, Welcome to the family of Ollie E1 owners. It just seems like yesterday we picked up our Elite I Hull #664 on September 14. We also live in Texas and have really enjoyed exploring the State Parks over the past few months. Wishing you safe travels to wherever your journey takes you. Mark
  15. As others have already stated, the most likely cause is that the refrigerator has come unplugged and needs to be plugged back in. It happened twice on our Elite I during the first few months of ownership and at first I was baffled by the 10 error code. I was able to come across a post someone had submitted awhile back that described the location of the plug. Once plugged back in it works as designed. Jason recommended we use a zip-tie to secure once we had it plugged back in. We have not had another problem with the refrigerator since.
