  1. Thank you, John. I'm a fan of your 'how to' posts - the mudflap installation is on my to-do list over the winter months.
  2. I'm preparing a dedicated tool set for our Elite 2, delivery date September 16th. Are the nuts, bolts, etc. SAE, metric, or a mixture of both?
  3. Does the belly band trim in the bathroom seal the gap between the upper and lower inner hulls to prevent water intrusion, or is the belly band trim only cosmetic?
  4. Thanks for the replies to my question. As usual, now I have more! The Snap-Pads look interesting - I can see how they slightly reduce the need to extend the stabilizers, as the pads are not very thick, but you still need some block system to minimize the extension of the stabilizers. One advantage of the Snap-Pads that I can think of is that, being made of rubber, they provide much more lateral friction on hard surfaces, such as asphalt or concrete, and would grip better on plastic jack pads. I'm not sure if that's an issue with the steel feet of the stabilizers in the real world though. Galway Girl, do you see an issue with the Snap-Pads collecting water, which might lead to rusting of the steel stabilizer feet?
  5. Andrew, are the feet on the Oliver jacks large enough in diameter to contact the magnets on the Andersen jack blocks?
  6. We are scheduled to pick up our 2021 LE2 on September 16th. Does anyone know if the factory has made the fresh water tank pickup modification standard, or would we have to request it? Since we live on the west coast, I want to get as many mods done while in Hohenwald.
  7. Hi Tina & Mike, my wife and I have a September 16th delivery date for our Elite 2. What specific date do you have for delivery? Maybe we'll see you there. Mike and Donna
  8. After reading this post, I emailed Phil Andrews to ask if the window shades on our LE2, scheduled for delivery in September 2021, can be installed with the blackout shade on the bottom of the frame, rather than on top. Phil said that it can be done at delivery upon request, which would save me the trouble of reversing them later. In our current T@G teardrop trailer, the window shades have the blackout shade on the bottom, which allows us to have privacy when getting ventilation with the windows open and the blackout shade pulled 3/4 of the way up.
  9. We want to get a Q-series Weber for our September 2021 delivery date LE2, which will come with propane quick disconnects. From the research I've done, the regulator on the Weber would have to be removed, and a quick disconnect fitting installed, which seem easy enough. For anyone who has done this mod, does the grill still work properly?
  10. Thanks for the information, John. Now I'm curious why my local AAA office told me they could not handle the registration. Update: I just called my local AAA office again - AAA offices in Southern California and Northern California are owned by different companies, with different rules regarding vehicle registration.
  11. We live in Shasta County in Northern California, and will be taking delivery of our LE2 in September 2021. For those (few) Ollie owners in California, what was your experience in registering the trailer with the DMV like? I was told by an agent at our local AAA office that in addition to processing any paperwork, the trailer would have to be brought to a DMV office for inspection. Thanks for any feedback.
  12. We are planning to order a set of Magma nesting pots, but are trying to decide between the regular and non-stick versions. How durable is the non-stick finish in your experience? I know that you shouldn't use metal utensils.
  13. For anyone with an Elite 2 who use the Andersen levelers, do they fit between the tires without modification? Andersen indicates that they can be shortened by as much as 4 inches. We used one Andersen leveler on our single-axle teardrop trailer, and am considering getting another one to use when we take delivery of our Elite 2 in September 2021. Thanks.
  14. I have been considering buying one of these ladders, which are available at my local Camping World. Do you think a 10 foot ladder is tall enough to access the roof for detailing and maintenance work, or should I get the 12 footer? I will take delivery of my Elite 2 in September of this year, and am researching items to bring with us when we travel to the mothership to collect out trailer.
