  1. 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.
  2. First class work as usual. Gives me a few minutes to shower before I realize I didn’t open the drain valve.
  3. Hope they sell fast. They are messing up my Rewards Program retirement income. I need toys. 😃
  4. 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.
  5. Steve welcome to the family, So sorry to hear about your wife . You find that this is a group of very nice people who will reach out to help in any way needed.
  6. Welcome to the family. You will not regret getting a Oliver. Best trailer made. Doing a lot of research on the trailer helps with the wait. Buying the stuff to put in the Oliver is fun.
  7. Nice looking job. Definitely tight work. I would need Advil after the job.
  8. That’s just Gross. There could be a comity show called RV dump stations and boat ramps.😀
  9. We travel with ours down to take stress of the tv mounts and have tightened the hinges bolt also. Running 55# tire air pressure differently helped. It would be nice if there was a tv setting to invert the picture so you could watch it while it was up. 😀
  10. Nice job! I was thing of installing a new door window with a 50% slider glass and a screen to ventilate during a rain. It’s the only vertical window we have and I wouldn’t mind a little rain water by the door during a rain. Started searching for a manufacturer.
  11. I use a piece of 3/4 white PVC about 8” long. Works great
  12. Tonight’s dinner, Off the Blackstone with a good IPA. Life is good!
  13. Nice job and write up. I also will add this to the list.
  14. This will definitely be my next minor upgrade. Looking forward to seeing outside the door window. Now do I choose clear or tinted? I’m thinking tinted with white blinds. Is there a one way mirror glass available?
  15. Congratulations and welcome, safe travels from Hull # 901 MD
  16. Thanks for the info, I will check Hull# 901, Safe Travels.
  17. Albert & Terri, Hello, If you haven’t already downloaded the Xantrex app for FXC Control. That is the first thing to do, makes setting changes easy. With the apt open power up the inverter and on the remote panel press and how the top ESC button until you set two lines flashing on the screen. This will allow the Bluetooth to connect. They apt will search for your inverter. Then go to settings. To charge the batteries I change GRID Breaker settings from normal 25 amps to 15 amps for the (Honda EU2200I) CHARGER current settings from normal 50 amps to 15 amps To charge batteries at a low rate and run the AC I change GRID Breaker settings from normal 25 amps to 15 amps CHARGER current settings from normal 50 amps to 5 amps (lowest setting) you can make minor adjustments up and down to match you generator. Reference Oliver trailer service tab also for Xantrex Inverter normal settings. Everybody please join in if you do it differently thanks . Safe Travels
  18. I purchased the Honda EU2200i to charge the batteries and run the AC when needed. Just need to select what is your priority and change the Xantrex setting. It just purrs away in eco mode with the AC running and is very quiet. So far so good. Definitely would wait some time per John’s recommendation before purchasing the EU 3200. Using the Honda app is nice to keep a eye on the generator load and shutting it down without leaving the trailer at night.
  19. I removed them 8 months after we got Hull #901. Really helped eliminate the black streaks where it wasn’t completely attached to the fiberglass, Trailer looks nicer without them and I do believe that on very hot and sunny days it helps ventilation under the awning to remove the heat but it is hard to tell.
  20. We have been thru a few chairs over the years but found the most comfortable camp chair made. Thought I would pass it on. . They are made by Strongback, We purchased the Elite Black 2.0 from Amazon. Believe use they are the most comfortable and supportive chairs made. I need to learn how to copy and paste sorry.
  21. Very Instrested in the retro fit, time line, cost and availability. Also would like info on the amp draw of the 13,000 unit. We just mostly run our Dometic on low while sleeping and plugged into 30 amp. If boondocking it goes into auto witch cycle the fan on and off and can be very annoying. But does save battery ‘s amp hours. Stay cool Hull #901
  22. We would like to add a LED dimmer to our Girard awning on our 2021 Hull 901. Looks like it would have to be mounted and wired next to the wind sensor. Have any of you done this? Thanks in advance.
