  1. Hello, The elevated bed option does not allow you to sit comfortably on the bed (IE, use it as a couch). However it gives you a lot of much needed storage. It's true that the elevated twin bed is no longer offered in an effort to provide a more standard unit. The factory is steering away from custom options. Our trailer #241 was picked up about 2 years ago and was the last elevated twin bed unit made. If you're interested in a well equipped unit with almost every option offered, contact me. We have made our last trip in it and are in the process of unloading and cleaning and will be offered in almost like new condition. It has been stored inside most of it's life.

  2. Bill, Thanks for the update. He was a nice guy, wish him well in his new endeavors. I'll contact Micro-Air direct. Brad
  3. Matteo, I've got a couple of questions I'd like to talk to you about. Lost your email address. Can you send to me? It's about the cycling issue we discussed in person at the last Oliver rally. Thanks, Brad
  4. Good information in this thread. I use the adjustable unit pictured above with the gauge. I would caution you to not leave the regulator in use or stored in freezing weather. Water gets into the spiral pressure tube, also known as a Bourdon tube. Should it freeze, the Bourdon tube is distorted and the needle is no longer accurate. (Trust me on this - experience) The only other item I'll mention is that I always install the regulator at the valve, protecting the hose. I've seen an overpressured hoses that looked like a snake that had eaten a rat. But, truthfully, I rarely used a regulator nor hook up to city water. I fill my water tank using a filter and operate with the pump 99% of the time. Brad
  5. <p style="text-align: left;">If you're getting drainage on the outside of the trailer, frequent problem is leveling. Mine seems to drain best with a slight nose high attitude. You can see the drain plumbing by popping out the filter screen.</p>
  6. After years of dealing with large carpets, I've switched to a smaller item. Check for Camco utility mat. Folds up easy and easy to store.
  7. Gee, simpler to stay at home and watch the travel channel.?
  8. Yes, they've moved the fan to an inaccessible area. Was told this was done unexpectedly by Dometic. May be one reason Oliver has moved to Norcold. My friends Dave and Ruth were at the factory last week and they said they identified a wire that powers fan and ice maker option. They may install a manual switch in that line. If and when my fan fails, I may consider disabling the stock fan and installing one that is accessible.
  9. The existing port (if like out 2017 model) is to reach the water heater bypass valve for winterizing. A larger port might allow you to reach both valves. Good mod!
  10. Hey, us old timers gottakeep a few secrets to ourselves. ☺ I sometimes find myself fighting the cover and I realize I didn't take the time to remove the screw in port. Do it from the curb side and the cover removes and replaces easily. It's balanced and there's no need to put your hand inside.
  11. That's what happens when you don't notice there's a second page.
  12. I haven't seen the tub collector but you can see the drain tubing by removing the ac filter. You'll see two "T" into one that I'm sure goes outside. I got an unexplained dump of water onto the cabin about a week ago. Think i may have had the nose too low.
  13. Is it possible the filler was stored inside the battery box? Vapor from the batteries may have deteriorated the squeeze bulb>
  14. Ohh - Didn't notice the date on the original post. How about asking for a loaner for the rally? I bet there's one or two behind the factory. You need to be there! Brad
  15. 22 foot? New model? Brad
