  1. Correction - I meant to say that I would be in Hohenwald April 9, not September 9th. Thank god for spell check and edit. Hap
  2. I will be in Hohenwald for service and a couple of upgrades April. 9th then plan to meander north to Sioux Narrows Ontario where we will turn west and slowly head for Alaska. My wife who doesn't like the slog across the country will fly into Edmonton, AB, Canada and meet me. This is our second trip in an OTT to Alaska. We almost never make reservations except for major holidays and have had very little trouble finding a place to stay. On our last trip, a couple that had RV'd to Alaska many times highly recommended Seward Alaska for the 4th of July. They recommended that we arrive at least five
  3. I thoroughly agree with John Davies about pressure warning systems. I have purchased several over the years, and TPMS has been by far the best. I've seen many RV's sitting on the side of the road with lots of damage not only to the tires but to the RV because it took a long time for the driver to realize that one of their tires was down. Hap
  4. Our EcoSeb just arrived today and I'm very pleased with how quiet it is on low and with the small size. I would also like to know where current owners place the unit in their OTT's? It's small enough to store in the OTT closet with ease when not in use and seems big enough to work effectively with the trailer. At the moment I'm giving it try in our laundry room but the real test will be in April on our Alaska trip. I can't wait to get back on the road. Hap
  5. I've reposted my question under the Thread Question for the Oliver Travel Trailer Factory???. I'm a big supporter of OTT and I'm not trying to be difficult, but I feel that this is an important question that needs a clear and concise answer. When I drop my trailer at an RV service center, I'd like to have a paper that I've printed off of the manual to hand to that center explaining how to lift the trailer for things like repacking the bearings, etc. I have included this and other questions on that thread, so hopefully, I will understand how to handle these situations soon. kountrykamper t
  6. Hi Keymaster, As you may already know I have experienced a jack failure on our first 2014 OTT while in the middle of nowhere Alaska. Also, this is not a request for service just a question that I've been asking for several years and still don't understand the answer. I suppose I a little on the dumb side but reading your reply here and reading the 2016 Elite II manual leaves me even more confused. What is a "special tire ramp"? In the thousands of miles that we have traveled while RVing I've seen many RV's with both tires flat on one side of the trailer flat after hitting a really b
  7. If you’re on the side freeway with a flat tire and for some rare reason, you have a jack failure where do I tell the wrecker driver to place his jack to lift the trailer to change the flat tire? Where are the lift points on OTT's? Jack failure is rare but it does happen.
  8. kountrykamper Great question. I have a slightly different question. If you're on the side freeway with a flat tire and for some rare reason, you have a jack failure where do I tell the wrecker driver to place his jack to lift the trailer to change the flat tire? Jack failure is rare but it does happen. Hap
  9. Thanks to everyone that answered my questions. I probably should have asked if any owners have older trailers that have upgraded to the Dexter EZ Flex. I am concerned that small children, dogs, and the elderly like me will not hear us coming thru campgrounds and get out of the way after upgrading to the Dexter EZ Flex. Maybe I'll invest in an airhorn for the truck. (Just Kidding) The great thing about OTT is that they listen to their customers and keep upgrading their product. If anyone is interested, you can look at our profile page and see the first OTT 2014 that we owned. The photo was
  10. Scubarx We have an appointment at the factory in a few weeks to have a few upgrades to our 2016 trailer. Were having the EZ Flex installed, also having a Microair Easy Start installed. I would like to hear your opinion on both of these upgrades. OTT has warned me that the easy start would void my warranty on the AC, but I believe that it's out of warranty now anyway. Hap
  11. Our tires are the Michelins that were put on at the factory and I’ve always set them at 75 psi summer and winter and never had a problem. I would also recommend the TPMS sensors. I haven’t had any problems with drawers opening or seeing doors popping open or any other damage etc. Also, our tires don’t seem to be showing any wear. I believe that I’ll have to replace them due to age not wear. I've just had our trailer serviced at a local RV dealer that is highly respected and questioned them about psi and they set them to 75 psi. I've tried lower psi pressure and I believe it decreases fue
  12. Several comments here advise staying in the area for several days to learn how everything works and to make sure everything is working properly. Great advice! I would advise heading out for a couple of hundred mile trip, then being prepared to return to factory if necessary. OTT is a great trailer but sometimes teething pains pop up and it is best to be in close proximity to the factory so they can address the issues or questions. Also, there will be the inevitable question: "how does this work?" You can go over those with the factory folks directly if you can easily return to Hohenwald.
  13. Great advise SeaDawg. We have the Yamaha 3000. I like the unit, but if I were to do it over again I would probably go with a Honda or Yamaha 2000, that’s capable of adding a companion unit. The 3000 takes two very fit guys to load and unload. I now just leave it in the basket covered and locked down when it's in the storage yard. I will say that the weight of the 3000 does not seem to affect the towing with our Silverado 1500. Having said that I would like to add that we stay in a lot of off-grid places during our travels and having the ability to use or AC is a must for us. This yea
  14. Hi Overland We have found that keeping the nightshades raised an inch or two at night helps to keep the windows from fogging up on the inside of our windows. Also, I'm a heavy set male while my wife is petite. At times we have found condensation under my mattress but not hers so I,m producing much more body heat than her which I assume is causing the condensation. We bought and placed a moisture barrier AIRE-FLOW™ MOISTURE BARRIER pad under each mattress and have had no more issues. It is inexpensive to purchase a roll and cut it to the size you need. I believe that I used a box c
