  1. I observed similar air intrusion in my 2021 Elite II when parked with the curbside to windward in a breeze.
  2. Interesting concept. It likely would require high ambient humidity and a significant amount of time and electrical energy to power it. Not practical features for boondocking. i would be interested in reading the details. A reverse osmosis water maker might be an option if you have a source of non-potable water and enough energy to power it.
  3. There is an explosion hazard if propane appliances are on when refueling. It is illegal to tow through tunnels with tank valves in the on position. Many choose to ignore these facts (I assume) due to the low incidence of actual fires or explosions. I have only traversed one tunnel several times (Chesapeake Bay Bridge tunnel). They rely upon the honesty of the drivers and don't do a visual inspection. Personally, I always turn the propane OFF prior to getting underway. You could winterize your trailer for towing in subfreezing conditions?
  4. If you've tried them and they make you feel claustrophobic a blindfold isn't the solution to your problem. My wife uses some generic version when she dons her CPAP for the night. It works for her.
  5. If you can't sleep due to ambient light, try a blindfold. It works day or night without modifying your Ollie. Many comfortable versions are available.
  6. I had similar concerns regarding separation of liquid and solid waste with our Nature's Head. It turned out not to be a problem. One of the greatest advantages is the amount of water conserved by not having to flush. There is also no odor. It's easy to keep clean with a spray bottle of white vinegar. When disposing of the solid waste there is a not unpleasant "earthy" odor. Urine capacity is about 3-4 days. I have a nylon tote bag that is used to transport the urine container to a toilet in order to be somewhat discreet about the process. For my grey tank I have garden hose adapters for both ends, but have never used a dump station because we usually just empty it in the yard at the end of the trip. When we set off on longer trips I'll probably have to deal with dump stations for the grey water. For me, the composting head was worth the extra expense.
  7. I use a tester to check the pedestal for polarity and ground fault prior to plugging in to avoid any surprises. Then I store the tester in a secure place. The onboard surge protector is all that is needed once connected.
  8. If it gets to the point where routine cleaning doesn't work, I'll go with the black. No problem so far.
  9. I have been using Star Brite Mold and mildew stain remover. It seems to be very effective at removing similar stains from my weather stripping. It's available on Amazon and West Marine.
  10. Our composting head when used per manufacturer’s instructions requires no additional chemicals. We have found that thoroughly wiping food residue off dishes and pans prior to washing them and using a fine strainer in the galley sink drain eliminates much of the organic material which could decompose and cause odors. When we return home I have been adding a small amount of Camco grey tank odor control to the traps. I usually drain the grey tank into the yard and it’s usually pretty neutral odor-wise with some slight frothiness from dish and hand soap.
  11. Is this a problem that has been corrected in the production of later models? My LE II #769 rolled off the line 03/2021.
  12. Polyurethane replacement bushings although stiffer are much more resistant to deterioration. A package of four is $4.75 here: https://www.suspension.com/9.8101 . I would check all the dimensions before purchasing replacements.
  13. The E. Coli is stored in the black tank. Definitely avoid drinking from that.
  14. Although often only open one or two days a week, we enjoy farmers markets for their selection of fresh local produce and meats. These are also good places to chat with the local residents and get some inside information regarding attractions and areas of interest. Often there are also local artisans and musicians exhibiting their talents.
