  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. We use the Thule bike rack, Really like it. Has a removable adapter 2” to 1-1/4” fits close to the hitch to help eliminate the cantilevered force on the hitch witch is only rated for 150# weight and a 24” length. We load the bikes on the two closest mounts to stay as close to the 24” as possible. Its would be nice if Oliver redesigned the rear bumper and storage area to add a extra 7” to allow for the bike rack and bumper to line up to keep the lines looking good and help protect the top of the spare tire cover with the bumper. Safe travels from Hull 901 in MD.
  7. Welcome and congratulations, Safe travels from Hull #901
  8. Welcome! We live in Maryland, Northern Carroll county. We split out time at Ocean City and our Oliver. Retirement will come fast, almost one year for me. Had a count down app on my phone and when I had a rough day at work it was nice to watch the time pass. I did love my job. You can’t go wrong with the Oliver built like a boat. Very high quality. Hull 901 Chris and John
  9. We decided to go with a LEER fiberglass cap with Thule top rails and a BedRug. No regrets. Stays dry.
  10. A bored mind can get very creative. Nice mod, It goes on my list also. 🎄
  11. First class job! Looks great and I like the contrast, Something to consider. The compliance police is going to get you for covering up the stove warning labels. LOL
  12. Don’t like the look of the curtain, We also just use a microfiber towel. The outside shower is easy to clean up. Just have to keep it going. How much is showering a lot? 😜
  13. Looks great! Have fun and safe travels.
  14. Wishing all a wonderful Thanksgiving, I need to buy a flexible belt.
  15. Ollie will be getting a second coat of Meguiar’s flagship wax and a small rechargeable vacuum any recommendations?
  16. All great stuff! Thank you for all you do to build a quality trailer.
  17. Citrus Breeze, I believe that the water you are seeing could be interior condensation witch can be caused when the outside temperatures are cold and the inside of the Oliver is warm and humid. . Although we have thermal pane windows the frame is aluminum and it is transferring the cold outside to inside that gives the humid air a place to condense and drip small amounts of water. I notice when camping in the cold and I am boiling water for coffee my curb side window will condense. Now I use the max air fan while boiling water to control interior humidity.
  18. I have had great success with the Mequiar’s Flagship wax. Been using it for years. Holds up great and gives me some exercise. I will apply twice a year.
  19. I set mine to 55# witch is the rating for the on board pump. BE CAREFUL when first hooking up, make sure that you do not have air in your water system. Open the hot and cold water valves in the trailer and Slowly open the water supply valve until there is no air. This will help eliminate water hammer that can compress air in the system greater then it is designed for and cause problems.
  20. Thank you for putting this information and experience together, very useful and answered some of my question.
  21. Learning all the systems and how they work is all the fun especially when you have a great support forum like this. Congratulations and Safe travels from Hull # 901 in MD
  22. To follow up on a Facebook post from Oliver Trailer owners. A nice upgrade to Oliver’s design would be increase the fresh water drain to 1” with a full port 1” valve. This would help with drain times or flushing and removal of the small plastic pieces that causes other problems. It’s the small things that make the Oliver great.
  23. I know the feeling! The older I get the more I appreciate the warm weather. We will be holding off for at least 2 weeks here in Maryland before winterizing and hopefully get out one more time. We would like to plan a trip to head south so the winter depression don’t get that bad. Come on spring!
