  1. Update on my batteries, all is good the factory installed heating pad keeps the batteries warm. Been down to -17° and the batteries will stay in the low to mid 40°s . I do monitor them each day on the app. I run the batteries down a couple times a month by unplugging shore power then plug them back in for a recharge. We got our new E2 just in time to winterize, so I wanted to give the system a workout. Works like a charm so far.
  2. Yep, the onboard Xantrex inverter/charger keeps charging with the xantrex inverter off. I’m not seeing the need to buy another charger. Am I missing something here?
  3. Thank you! That is correct ThanPro Package with three Lithionics 130Ah G31 batteries. I have shore power so I might leave a space heater inside the E2. I could also put a 120V heat pad in the battery compartment. I was told when I picked up the Oliver that all power including shore power goes through the batteries and inverter. I haven't tried running on shore power with the batteries turned off yet that's tomorrows test
  4. If the batteries (Lithionics) are turned off during long-term storage can they be left out in the cold (freezing) or should they be kept warm? Obviously the heating pad won’t work with the batteries off. Sounds like they don’t tolerate charging in cold weather. Also what do people do with solar panels? Is it possible to disable/disconnect them? Is that what the Blue Seas switch is for?
  5. Just got home with a new E2. I wanted to keep the batteries topped off so I attempted to plug into a 20 amp with a dogbone adapter but it trips the GFCI. Any suggestions? I purchased some parts to set up a 30 amp outlet but in the meantime, I would like to keep the batteries charged.
  6. Good looking rig! Congradulations and safe travels...
  7. Oliver did try to set us up with a showing of a unit near us. The owner did not respond. I actuly spotted the E2 in our negborhood but knowing the owner did not want to be part of the program I did not want to pester... Thanks!!! to all of you who have offered to show your Oliver. I think I have watched every video and factory tour avalible online. Heading to Hohenwald in September to pick-up our E2.
  8. Lol, 😭 I saw that photo online and used it as an example. I would not want to advertise lithium batteries inside. We are in the queue for a September delivery. To bad about the RV battery code (4 lithium). We are still on the fence about getting lithium batteries. John, Moscow Idaho.
  9. Don’t really want them. Still haven’t seen an Oliver in person. The see an Oliver program didn’t work for us. Guess there aren’t any in our area. “Yet”
  10. On a new E2, If you go lithium do they add air vents in the compartment door?
  11. The Grumman Goose of the RV trailer world. I was almost expecting station codes for all your destinations. Standing by in PUW, waiting for our September delivery date.
  12. Thats cool, we are in Moscow and always stay in TF's when we head south on road trips.
  13. Hello, John here, first time posting. 44 years married to my wife, Betty. Retiring in a couple years. I'm New to forums, new to camping, new to Oliver. Spent about 30 years in Alaska some off grid and now live in Idaho. We have a September delivery for a Legacy Elite II, twin bed. We are quite aways from delivery but still have a few questions. I have a 2017 5.7 Tundra TRD double cab. Do any of you tow with a Tundra? Do you know if the Anderson hitch package comes with the receiver hitch and ball? Thanks!
