  1. We didn’t order the electric lock but later decided that one would be convenient. I ordered a RV lock model V4 from rv lock on Black Friday Sale for $129. Install took only 15-20 minutes. It is plastic and doesn’t feel as hefty as the stock metal manual one that came with our trailer. If the RV electric lock breaks, we still have the original metal one to re-install.
  2. Moots, I just sent you a pm. We are currently in Palo Duro canyon and slowly camping our way to Littleton to visit our Son. If you are flexible with your time, we would be happy to show you ours and discuss likes/dislikes. Give me a call or text. thanks. Steve
  3. I pull an E2 with a 2016 tundra and have done so comfortably for about 10,000 mi. I have pulled multiple trips to the CO mountains without issue. I carry a generator, fuel cans, a loaded cooler, and tools in the truck bed. I fill up my water tank and don’t use an Anderson hitch. I occasionally do 70-75mph on the interstate and so far have never experienced trailer sway on this rig. The current incentives are causing me to toy with the idea of getting a new truck. Even though Fords and Chevys have a few more whistles and bells, At this point I will probably replace my tundra with a newer one just because of how well the truck pulls the trailer.
  4. I don’t know what the technical definition is but we have camped several days with weather in the teens while utilizing the onboard water system without a freeze problem. The furnace seemed more than adequate to warm the cabin and keep the pipes above freezing.
  5. Congratulations Scott & Veronica we look forward to seeing you at the rally
  6. We are registered and will be in site F03 and Looking forward to meeting many of you.
  7. We have found that you get use to it and don’t even notice it after a while.
  8. David, congratulations on the purchase. I'm sure you will have some great adventures ahead.
  9. I have a Tundra and have towed our Oliver roughly 5,000 miles including time in the mountains of CO & UT. I travel with the water tank full and carry a generator, gas can, water cans and a large cooler in the back of the truck. I don't use a weight distribution hitch and have had absolutely no problems what so ever. The truck doesn't get good mileage (12 towing - 15-16 not towing) but I would probably only replace the Tundra with another one.
  10. I suggest using an ohms meter and individually check the parallel adapter’s hot, neutral and ground for continuity.
  11. We store our trailer 1.5 hr from our house in a barn that has no electricity. I check on the trailer every 2-3 weeks when we are not traveling with it. The parasitic drain was concerning. I built a battery cutoff switch to easily disconnect the batteries during storage. My build consisted of a Harbor Freight switch, Harbor freight terminals, a plastic electrical box, 18" of 4# wire, a couple grommets and some command strips to hold the box in position. We currently only have 2 batteries so the switch box mounts easily behind them. I may want to rig up something nicer later but this is fitting the bill so far for $20. Build time was about an hour including crimping and soldering the terminals.
  12. We had site 60 as well last month on our shakedown.. I’m in for the Texas group idea as well.
  13. Having a great day as we picked our Oliver hull 512. We had pleasure of meeting Topgun Who was at the factory having some service done. As has been said by others, the more you dig into the design details on these trailers the more impressed I am. Hope to see you down the road. Steve - “Carnivore”
