  1. What are brand / spec are you using for the replacement white gear grease?
  2. I purchased 8 Timken seals today in preparation for tomorrow's repack of my Timken bearings. To my disappointment I discovered after opening the boxes, these Timken seals are red, not orange and are now made in Mexico. Any one had any quality issues with the Mexican Timken seals?
  3. John, I’ll throw my 2cents in. We have had our Oliver for about 2-1/2 years, pulled it over 25,000 miles and camped in it around 200 nights. We are actually ending week 4 of a 5 week trip. The only problem that we have ever had was with a First Alert smoke detector that malfunctioned in month 4. Oliver sent me a replacement. These trailers and the folks you deal with when you buy them are as good as it gets. As you can probably already tell, the owner community is great too They are pricy and I am a tightwad but If I lost it I would not hesitate to replace with another.
  4. I did the same as Townesw. I like to feel the hubs to check temperature during fuel stops. Plus I also think they look better with the covers removed.
  5. Try opening the cold water valve on the outside shower while pumping.
  6. The heat strip that is built into the air-conditioner on our LE2 has never blown warm air. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to trouble shoot the unit? Is there a re-set switch somewhere that should be checked? any suggestions are welcome and thanks..sj
  7. Congratulations Jim & Francis. it was great meeting both of you and we look forward to seeing you down the road.
  8. Connor77, I’ll throw my 2cents in here. I have been pulling our LE2 for the past 20 months over about 19,000 mi without any problems. We live in TX but have pulled it up and down mountains of CO, WY & MT without any problems. I don’t use an Anderson hitch and drive between 60-70. We have the 20lb propane tanks, don’t have a front basket and I generally travel with a full fresh water tank. In the truck bed we carry a Honda 2000, gas can, full cooler, small Webber grill and a couple lawn chairs. We don’t have a topper, only a trifold backflip cover. Sure a diesel would pull better but I use the truck as my daily driver and really like the reliability of the Tundra. Mine is a 16 and has 87k on it. It even has the original brakes. I am considering replacing it with a new Tundra just because I have read somewhere that Toyota is going to stop producing the 5.7 v8. I do like the F250 gas trucks but it is 2” too long to fit in our garage.
  9. Jumper cables or an inexpensive battery charger from Walmart to finish the trip.
  10. This thread really motivates me to add solar to my 2019 LE2. Mossemi has already giving me plenty of advice and recommended a good book on the basics. My trailer came with the panel wiring already in the walls. One end of the wire is bundled under the street side bunk and it is also visible passing through through the area behind the stereo and then continues upward to the roof somewhere between the hulls. My biggest unknown is exactly where is the top end of the panel cable located on the roof between the inner and outer hulls. I don’t have an opportunity to get a close look at another Oliver with solar already installed. Can anyone shed light on how to locate the top end of the wire and where to drill the hole for the port.
  11. I replaced the temporary battery cutoff I had previously installed inside my battery Box with a new Blue Sea 300 amp switch that I mounted on the panel under the street side bunk. Thanks Salorashore for the idea. I also installed a Victron 712 battery monitor. The seller was out of the smart shunts so they sold me the 712 for only $20 more. The display will stay under the Rear dinette seat mounted in a plastic junction box. Thanks Mossemi For the idea.
  12. the space you are referring to is already occupied. Once I receive the switch, if the dimensions of the face and knob are thin enough when surface mounted to not interfere with the slide and side of the batteries, I could consider mounting it on the side of the battery housing with the switch knob facing the batteries. On/off function could be done by reaching into the battery box and turning the knob. any thoughts / opinions??
  13. Currently I don't have solar panels, solar charge controller, Lithium batteries or an inverter but plan to add them in the next year or two to our 2019 LE2. I have ordered both a Blue Sea switch and a Victron battery monitor. I'm fairly confident on how to mount & connect each of them but I am not completely sure WHERE to mount them in our 2019 LE2. I am wanting to install the battery cut-off switch where John (sailorashore) mounted his but don't want to cut a hole and put the switch in the space where a future inverter needs to be mounted. Any advice where the future inverter is suppose to be mounted? Thank you , Steve "Carnivore" 512
