  1. John, we're getting a 2022 LE2 with solar and lithium batteries in November. Will ours need this battery monitor? Thanks, John
  2. STAR BRITE Liquid Electrical Tape - 4 FL Oz Can With Applicator Brush Cap - Protective, Airtight, Waterproof, Flexible, Dielectric Coating - Indoor & Outdoor Use John, I see it comes in clear also. Do you use clear on the 7 pin plug to seal out water? Do you use it anywhere else? John
  3. Katjo's experience was very educational. The pictures she shared and the comments were valuable. I do want to learn as much as possible before we get our Ollie in five months. The forum has been great for learning.
  4. I am glad it's fixed for you. That was a bad way to start life with your Ollie. Hope it's all trouble free from here on. Have a great first summer with it.
  5. "We are taking delivery of our 2022 Elite II in November as well. My review of posts on this forum over the past 9 months has persuaded me that we, as consumers, are the final quality control inspectors for the Oliver trailers we buy. So, I have compiled a long list of items to check, and system tests to conduct, during the first few days after pickup." We have November 7 as our delivery day. We plan to test out everything and leave for Oregon on the 11th. Maybe we will cross paths. When is your delivery date? If you want to be famous, would you be willing to share your list with me? I know Oliver has their own list, but you might have thought of things that bear inspection from reading the forum. You won't be famous worldwide, but with us you will be. 😂🤣 Best regards, John
  6. "Of note however was the battery box support member only had a single tightened bolt holding it up, The second bolt was in place but not even finger tight" I wonder how these are overlooked in the inspection process. I thought they were inspected and signed off all along the build process. We pick up in November, so will do a thorough inspection of everything before leaving for Oregon. John, unknown hull number
  7. We just got a Frigidaire 4 burner induction cook top for the house after our Amana halogen unit failed. It's insanely fast. This model was $900, but there were many in the $2000 range. I like it. I was thinking of getting a portable induction burner for the Ollie. It looks like it might only be feasible with shore power.
  8. Does your mud flap do the job to protect the trailer? I am considering Rock Tamers. They're bigger and attach at the hitch. We get our Ollie in November so I anticipate some rainy weather on the trip back to Oregon. It would be nice if it wasn't chipped up and filthy by the time we get home.
  9. I read an article in RV Life that said to just buy new tires when you get your new trailer as they put on very cheap tires to get the trailers and RV's out the door. I assume they meant other trailer brands. I can't picture that being an issue with Oliver.
  10. Does lactaid work? A lot of people can't tolerate dairy. Northern European ancestry can for the most part. We're from Swedish ancestry so we have no problem.
  11. So apparently my wife is right again. We don't need to tell her.
  12. I thought the only R value that Oliver talked about were the windows. R16 for the windows was a figure that I recall. I could be wrong. My wife would agree that I could be wrong.
  13. "Our 2008, waxed twice yearly, with quality, uv protection carnuba based wax, still looks great, stored outside 24/7/365. We also wash it frequently, with marine soap." What are the names of those two products? Do you use the clay bar to buff? I saw that mentioned somewhere on a thread.
  14. Was it a hard decision? I think someone said you lose a little counter space with the convection one. Do you know how much is lost?
