  1. I have a 2020 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel. I contacted BEM at the number on Patriot's invoice, and was told that BEM sells their locking fuel and DEF caps through Genosgarage.com. I just placed an online order for a locking fuel cap and locking DEF cap at Genosgarage.com. I called Genos to ask about keys, and was told that the keys are the same for both the fuel and DEF caps, with each cap coming with two keys. The fuel cap was $59.95, and DEF cap was $49.00, before tax and shipping. Both products are currently backordered, with expected delivery in early April.
  2. Ray & Susan, I really like how you have decorated Pearl. Is the wood cutting board covering the stove custom made or off the shelf?
  3. Thanks Overland, Your earlier post where you stated that the Nev-R-Lube axles would be available "starting this year" made me hopeful that our trailer would have those axles, but Jason's reply that "it will depend on when the plant starts installing them on 2022 models and if there is a good supply" made me question that. Do you know what Oliver considers a 'model year' - began production in, or delivered in a given year? We ordered our Ollie in November 2020, understanding that production and delivery would happen sometime in 2021, making our Ollie a 2021 model.
  4. Hi Overland, Are the Dexter Nev-R-Lube axles on your trailer a retrofit? I contacted Jason about the possibility of the Nev-R-Lube axles being available in time for the September 2021 delivery date for my Elite 2. He replied that it would depend on when Oliver starts installing them on the 2022 models, and if there is a good supply, as they are currently experiencing problems with vendors being able to meet demand.
  5. Ray & Susan, What brand of remote temperature sensors are you using? I searched the Forum and found one brand that came with 8 sensors, which seems like more that would be necessary.
  6. Mike & Carol, Where does the Vornado heater plug in? I can't tell from the photo. Our Elite 2 Twin is scheduled to be hatched this fall, and we plan to use the small portable electric heater we currently have in our T@G teardrop. Your 'home on the road' looks very cozy!
  7. Thanks for the feedback. I will ask Phil Andrews about the shower curtain - when I posted the question last night I had a feeling that at some point in time I heard or read that the track came equipped with a curtain. I'm not trusting my memory as much as I used to.
  8. According to the upgrades list, the shower track option does not include a shower curtain. For those of you who have this option, what style/size curtain works for you? Does a standard 'home' shower curtain fit the contours of the bath/toilet area? Thanks for any advice - these forum posts have been invaluable. I'm trying to have as few surprises as possible when we collect our Legacy Elite 2 in September 2021.
  9. As someone who will be taking delivery of a Legacy Elite 2 in September 2021, I was concerned about the breakaway cable being too short in some situations. I have essentially the same TV as SherMica, so I emailed Phil Andrews to ask what Oliver could do to remedy the problem. He replied that "The length of the breakaway is regulated by RVIA. On most tow vehicles this is not an issue. For the rare occasion that it is, the breakaway is connected to the truck with a D-link or carabiner type fastener." I'm planning on bringing an aftermarket coiled breakaway cable on delivery day, just in case I encounter the same issue. I am so impressed with all the support you all have given SherMica, and have found the Forum such a source of knowledge while I am (trying to be) patiently waiting for my Ollie to hatch.
  10. Is this upgrade now standard on new Anderson hitches? We are going to get the Anderson hitch for the Elite 2 that we just ordered.
  11. Hi dedroll, How is the upgrade different from the standard unit?
  12. As mentioned in my post last night, my wife and I are researching which options to get when ordering a Legacy 2 (thanks to those who replied to my questions). I forgot to ask about the advantages or disadvantages of the Truma AquaGo on-demand water heater.
  13. Hello everyone!, My wife and I are planning to order a Legacy Elite 2 standard floor plan in the near future, and we have some questions for current owners about upgrades we are considering. Responses to any or all questions would be greatly appreciated. We plan to contact Oliver directly with the same questions, but want to get feedback from owners. As a little background, we have traveled in the western USA with our Little Guy teardrop trailer for the past five years, and feel that it's time to get a 'real' trailer with four-season capability, and have settled on an Oliver after extensive online research. Questions: 1: How does Ultrafabric differ from the standard fabric? 2: Are you happy with the KTT mattress upgrades? Do they replace the standard seating cushions in the dining area, i.e, are they covered in the selected fabric? 3: Standard versus Pro awnings; order sheet says both are powered, but not clear about differences or advantages. 4: Automatic back flow prevention valve: Is it worth it? I seem to recall from YouTube videos that there is a manual valve to control this. Again, thanks for any or all feedback on these questions, and any other upgrades that your experience suggests. We are just beginning the buying process, and will probably inundate you all with more questions in the near future. Looking forward to joining the Oliver owner family.
