  1. You had an unanswered question in your originally thread… did you remove the metal bracket before mounting to the Oliver?
  2. So what spec grease is recommended. Didn’t see it in manual or on these threads. Mobil 1? wt?
  3. My 2002 Casita Spirt 17' had an awesome Coleman that was still going strong when I sold it last spring. ;-(. When you have to wear AirPods to watch movies with AC on....
  4. In my last conversation with Oliver Service about a broken hold-down band for the heater tank, they suggested no more than 60psi to reduce vibration issues due to a hard ride. I'm somewhere around 55-60 at this point.
  5. " the buyer had to take out a loan from his bank and they made a certified check to me. Before the buyer came to pick up the motorcycle, I had him to send me a copy of the certified check, I looked up his bank on internet and called them with all of the check information to be sure it was a legitimate check before accepting it. " This is what my seller did when I bought their 2020 last spring. We had a pretty good email thread going and had done due diligence on each other over the net. Plus, I was motivated to lock it down since buyers were lined up behind me. That said, wired funds are the most common/safest solution, but need to work around bank hours and transition time between depositing and posting, particularly if they want to do final inspection of the trailer prior to releasing funds, i.e., inspect Mon AM, contact buyer's bank to wire funds, funds post in the PM, then trailer released. I'd plan on two days.
  6. Varies by state and coverage, and like most, you are probably limited to coverage by your primary carrier as most don't want to insure just the trailer by itself...but pretty reasonable rate depending on deductible and whether ACV or Agreed Value coverage. Given the market value of an Oliver, vs Book, I'd be sure you have an Agreed Value clause in the contract in case of a total loss. Would mean the difference between getting $35K and $55K+.
  7. You can deduct anything, until you are audited...but this looks pretty safe. 😉
  8. https://littlehousecustoms.com/store.html#gen
  9. Just watch tight turns as you will bend the handle…
  10. Unless demand drops, that wait time reflects their production throughput, which was recently increased. 5/week I believe I’d put the order in. Based on what we’ve seen opportunities arise to move up the list when other folks have to cancel, like I did when I found a 2020 resale available for this season.
  11. If you have an iPhone, you could put an Airtag between the walls with a hidden fish line to recover it for battery replacement. If you have a composting toilet you could even put it in the black tank. Even if the thief had an iPhone and knew enough to know one was in the trailer, he’d be so frustrated trying to find it, he might dump the trailer.
  12. If going through Colorado you might bookmark this: https://cotrip.org/home.htm Just trying to get from Golden/Denver to Ouray this past week I was juggling I-70 closures due to mud slides and State 50 full closure all week. It’s a moving target here with road repairs and September weather adds another variable.
  13. Update: Jason is sending new text strap, but is also going to discuss with engineering to see if there might be a better solution. Great service continues.
