  1. I looked into the Curt Rebellion 2/12 flex hitch (859.00) for our trailer. But decided on just a standard 2 1/2 hitch from Curt rated for 20,000 pounds. I didn’t like all the extra possible mechanical problems at the hitch for the small benefit. The best thing I did was lower the air pressure to 55 pounds in our trailer. Safe travels.
  2. Has anyone installed a working window with a 50% slider in the door? It’s the only vertical location for a window that could be left open durning a light rain to ventilate the trailer and not get things wet. I would not mind a little water on the floor at the door. Currently I open the bathroom vent and run the large exhaust fan. Just would be nice to have a little extra ventilation. What’s your thoughts? Thanks
  3. Congratulations and welcome to the family, Great group of people here. Safe travels.
  4. Welcome to the Oliver family. Sorry we are currently in Maryland assisting with birthing of Gotland lambs.
  5. Very nice Job. It’s a tough space to organize for sure. We tend to carry different items with the season’s. We will get it figured out one day.
  6. Congratulations! It’s time to party. Safe travels from Hull# 901 in MD
  7. It’s the small price we pay for loving nature. We were attacked by lanterns flys in Berryville Virginia while attending a bluegrass festival in sept. Just got to deal with it. Mosquitos are the worst.
  8. That’s cold! I had to put another log in my stove after looking at your picture. We winter camp and have been out in 20 deg. with Lite snow with no problems. It’s the wind at those temp that makes it bad. Seems like the older we get the more we like the 3 season camping. Really enjoy being outside. I wouldn’t want to winter camp in any other camper but our Oliver. Stay warm and have some fun.
  9. Sounds like you have a good plan to reach your new goals. Hard work and saving money always will pay off in the long run in life. Good luck! Definitely paint that trailer white and use a sharpie for the Oliver name.
  10. If that is all that happen your good. Job done! I’m a old school type of guy and don’t mind inspecting or repacking the bearings. I always feel the hubs at stops to make sure they are not getting hot witch can be a sign of a potential problem. Safe Travels
  11. Looks to be the solar panel charge controller on the street side. I would submit a service ticket to Oliver. Or install a bolt and washer and nut through the back (round) access hole. Easy fix.
  12. Wow! Great catch. OCD does pay off. Most of my friends and I have it but will not admit it. Safe travels.
  13. Welcome to the family. This forum is some of the best people out there.They will help with any questions or issues you have. A lot of knowledge here. Safe travels.
  14. Thanks for sharing. We just had Two large RV shows near us Timonium MD and Harrisburg PA. Didn’t go this year. Besides there is nothing build as well as the Oliver at the shows.
  15. Found the fan on my 2021 Norcold. You can’t see it by opening both exterior vents. I needed to use my phone to take a picture from bottom looking up. It would be a ***** to change if needed. I also installed a piece of rubber between the 3/8 gas line after bending in Down a little it’s was rubbing on the black hot gas line. Don’t need a leak on either system.
  16. What refrigerator are you referring to? And what year is your trailer? I didn’t know there was a OEM external refrigerator fan. Thanks.
  17. Hello and welcome to the family. If you do a search on this site for hitch locks there is a lot of info. I like the Proven Industry model 2178-B around 280.00.
  18. Welcome to the family and congratulations. Wishing you safe travels from Hull 901 in MD.
  19. Sure wish they would get away from who has the most horse power and torque race and more about best quality, rust protection and longevity. The design obsolescence approach drives me crazy. They can keep their trucks I’m good for a while.
  20. Thanks on the info on the adapter plug. I am getting ready to purchase the Zamp portable solar panel. Trying to make up my mind (what is left) on the 230 Watt that has to say within 15 feet of the trailer due to wire gage size. Or the 180 watt that you can add a additional 15 feet extension to get to 30 feet. I know it depends on what type of camping you do but we go from music festivals to state and federal parks and boondocking with our dogs. So running our Dometic 11000 btu AC with draws +- 11.4 amps. Off the batteries is a must at times. And yes we have a generator also. I know bigger is better but 15 feet to get to sun seems short. Any thoughts would be great. Thanks.
  21. First class work as usual. Gives me a few minutes to shower before I realize I didn’t open the drain valve.
  22. Hope they sell fast. They are messing up my Rewards Program retirement income. I need toys. 😃
  23. Ouch! Glad no one got injured. Mother Nature sure can cost us some money. I think about trees falling in the state camp grounds, We always look around before unhooking but sometimes there is no evidence of a tree problem. Glad the Oliver made it through it.
