  1. I agree, the Obed is a special place. I have spent a lot of time there, and also at the Big South Fork (NPS), Frozen Head and Pickett State Parks in the Upper Cumberland Plateau area.

  2. The Obey and Obed are two separate rivers. The Obey river where rideandfly stayed is on the Dale Hollow Lake near the KY and TN state line. The Obed River is a NPS Wild and Scenic River located a little further south in Morgan and Cumberland counties of TN.

  3. Alberta and Randy,

    I had the same problem trying to figure out how to reinstall the egress window screen. The screen is mounted outside the widow channel using four metal clips. The clips snap into the edge of the plastic channel. Just hold the screen in place and push until you hear it snap. It took me several frustrating minutes to figure it out.

    Yes, when connected to shore power, that's exactly what I do - I turn off the charger at 80% or so and back on at 50% - which is several days since there's primarily lights and fans draining the batteries slowly.  I figured out how to use the Xantrex 3000 software to turn the charger off and on.  I know the BMS protects the batteries from overcharge, but being full all the time does stress the cells as well.  If I know I'll be dry camping, I will top the batteries off, but I'll not keep the charger on (including solar) when they get back to 100%.  I'm not sure if any of this will increase the longevity of the batteries significantly, but I don't mind doing it so far.  Time will tell.



    I like the idea of turning off the charger while still being on shore power. Could you share how you used the Xantrex software to turn the charger off and on. I have the 3000 watt inverter/charger with the Lithionics batteries. I downloaded the Xantrex app today, but did not see anything obvious in the settings to turn the charger off. Thank you

  5. Thanks to everyone for the nice welcome! 

    I've been very fortunate to have had a career in parks, now I am looking forward to spending time camping in many of them, and exploring what other states have to offer.

    BlueHighways: I am very familiar with Burns TN, being originally from Dickson.

    John Davies: I have visited Deception Pass S.P. It has a cool museum on the history of the CCC.

  6. Hello from East Tennessee,


    My wife and I are picking up our new Oliver

    Elite II next week and thought this would be a good

    time to introduce ourselves.


    I have been retired from state parks for a few

    years now and my better half is planning to work a little

    while longer. We are new to RV camping, so we

    plan to start with some short trips and eventually

    work up to traveling across the country.


    I grew up in Middle TN, so I am proud

    to know that our new Oliver camper is a

    Tennessee made product.


    I have found this forum to be a great source

    for information, and I look forward to

    meeting other Oliver owners in our travels.
