  1. How do you cook at home? Do you frequently use your oven at home? If you do you will like having the convection feature. We spend a lot of time in our EII, and we rarely go to restaurants. That we were ordering the convection / microwave was a given. In the past two weeks I’ve made: Muffins, biscuits, a whole chicken, and a loaf of whole wheat sourdough bread. We use it both on and off grid.
  2. Thank you for your reply. Please let me know what your eventual solution is. As there is always more to learn.
  3. What was the battery voltage reading before you hooked up shore power? I would suspect low battery voltage. The inverter will not turn on if the battery voltage is below a set threshold. The interior lights run on 12v they do not need the inverter to function. Any 12v digital device can exhibit strange behavior with low voltage. Leave it plugged into shore power for a few hours. Then try the lights again.
  4. If a modern tank is functioning correctly it can not be overfilled. Modern tanks have a internal shutoff valve that only allows a specific liquid level. Of course there is always the possibility that it is not functioning correctly.
  5. I’ve washed more than once at a normal self service car wash. Most have a taller bay that you can definitely fit in. While on the road I don’t try to get it spotless, but sometimes I just gota get some of that dirt n bugs off.
  6. I appreciate the effort that you put into this post. My soc percentage on the app and battery voltages never seemed to correlate. After reading your post I have flashed firmware. Hopefully the new firmware will do a better job. Thank you.
  7. Hopefully I can continue to have the tape on the aav. The service or replacement of the valve will wait until this winter when I am not living in the trailer. It screws on but the propane supply to the stove is routed directly on top of the aav so it’ll wait.
  8. I understand the purpose of the aav, but I do not think that there will ever be a big enough flow down that drain to need the aav to break the suction caused by the water in the drain pipe. I was uncertain about the venting of the gray tank without the aav and the shower valve being closed. Today I dumped a 3/4 full gray tank with the tape on the aav and the shower valve closed. The gray water flowed out in a big stream. There was no gurgling as though the tank needed air to enter. I think the tank is still vented even with the shower valve closed.
  9. We sold our Tiffin class A diesel pusher last spring and picked up hull 845 July 2nd. We have been living in Oliver since then and have logged about 3,000 miles. There have been a few issues with Oliver, and I expected there would be. One was Oliver’s fault. The ac plug on the fridge came loose. The factory had put a zip tie around the plug, but someone forgot to actually zip the tie. That was an easy fix as I had been reading the forums, thank you to everyone who posted about the ac fridge issue. The other two issues were parts supplier related. The auto switching propane regulator failed when it attempted to auto switch. It would not allow propane to flow from either bottle. Not good since we were boondocking. A trip to a hardware store to purchase a single regulator and attaching it to Oliver allowed us to use propane until Oliver sent a new regulator. The third problem was a bad smell inside the trailer. At first we noticed it only after a travel day. Then it gradually grew persistent. I tracked it down to the air admittance valve in the kitchen sink drain line. It is in the upper right hand corner of the cabinet behind the cook top. A piece of duct tape around the offending fixture confirmed my suspicion of the offending part. It looks to be a pita to replace I’m sure it’s code, but I’m not sure it’s needed in this application. We usually don’t have hookups so we don’t run large amounts of water down that sink. It may work fine without a vacuum break. Time will tell. Overall I am very happy with the trailer and it is living up to my expectations. We will be traveling for at least two more months I think we have the initial bugs sorted.
  10. My driving partner, in a panic, terrified me by over correcting with a sharp right, then over correcting with a sharp left, then another over correction to the right. I was sure that a life changing event was beginning. But the combination of anti sway on the truck, the Anderson hitch, and the Oliver design actually straightened out the induced sway. I’m a believer in all three.
  11. It took me a bit to figure out the two switches too. It didn’t help that we were told at orientation that the inside one was to turn on the electric and the outside one was for the propane.
  12. A 10” round cake pan fits on the rack perfectly and sees the most use. I also use an 8” round cake pan occasionally.
  13. Our street side awning is out about 4’ right now. Where we are currently parked the street side is due south. I don’t have to use the window shades to keep the sun out. I use it enough to be glad I have it.
  14. I can’t comment on the difference from AGM to lithium. I upgraded our last rv from 6v flooded to lithium. It was a night and day difference. After having experience with lithium I didn’t hesitate when ordering the Oliver I wanted lithium again.
