  1. After having reading comprehension issues with what was being generously offered, I’m passing on these extrusions. I mistakenly thought the brackets were also included (my error, not dewdev’s wording.) Since I’ll need to order the brackets too, I’ll just get everything at once. Thank you for offering these!
  2. If Hobo can't use these and no one else needs them sooner, I'd sure like to take advantage of your generous offer. I plan to make Overland's Lagun table setup over the winter so it is ready when our trailer is done in March. Let me know and we can make arrangements. Thank you!
  3. We did similar at a TearJerkers event last month, except Deb concocted her own teriyaki-ish sauce. Mmmmm!
  4. Me too! September 18, 1953. Happy belated birthday! (We were camping in PA with zero cellular service (wonderful!!!) or we could have celebrated together. We use the GCI Pico chairs which are similar but without the table. The best selling point of the Pico is that is fold super compact while still having a normal seat height. Folded, in its bag it is smaller than a brief case! This is important in our 5X8 squaredrop, and I expect storage to be at a premium with the Oliver when it arrives. https://gcioutdoor.com/products/pico-arm-chair-telescoping-directors-chair The GCI Compact Camp Table 25 is just the right height to be a dining table with them, and we have a no-name lower table to use as a side table around the fire pit. https://gcioutdoor.com/collections/tables/products/compact-camp-table-25
  5. That's our dilemma. Get the standard toilet and retrofit the AirHead, or get the Nature's Head, swap in the AirHead, and try selling the Nature's Head. A real seat instead of that tall uncomfortable lip is the big factor for Deb at just 5'2". I recall reading that someone tried getting Oliver to install the AirHead for them without success,
  6. In a recent post, Brian showed that the new Victon charge controller for 2023 is the SmartSolar MPPT 100/50 model. Does Oliver have their two solar panels in series or parallel configuration? For 2023 there are apparently two 210W panels. I have a portable 200W panel. I’d like to rewire the existing portable solar input that currently goes directly to the batteries, to go to the Victron charge controller instead, in parallel to the factory panel input. My panel does not have an inbuilt charge controller. I’m curious if the 100/50 Victron can handle 620W of input. If the two factory panels are in parallel, I’d be pushing the capabilities in perfect conditions. Any input from those more knowledgeable about solar? Thanks!
  7. Some of us more folically challenged men would prefer no mesh, too! 😁
  8. For our Hiker, I used parts from the Geyser and adapted them to our RoadShower. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/100064448631768/posts/pfbid0d17FDqu2asAWPkCPTgCCVpzjfdieerzrYpJ39JeXEgT8tB5Dskt2azTJWCNiWrpCl/?app=fbl
  9. This thread is very timely as we wait for our Oliver to be ready March 28th. I’ve been reading every thing I can, watched videos, asked questions, etc. but, having only camped in a 5x8 squaredrop with zero systems in it, I’m sure I’ll still be overwhelmed come delivery day. I already have a Dropbox folder with PDF files of brochures, manuals, diagrams, mods from the forums DIY folder and more. This forum and the Facebook group have been amazingly supportive and a wealth of experience and knowledge. A few of you have contacted me directly, and we’ve had wonderful phone conversations. I’m sure when the day arrives, we’ll be fine! Thank you all!
  10. Anita told us they a soft start option is not needed with the Truma, nor would one be offered as an option with the Truma package.
  11. Yep, but pretty common with Toyotas these days. I got my 2021 Land Cruiser $9000 under sticker. Three months later, they were selling ( not asking) for $30,000 over sticker, until every last one in the US was gone. Crazy time! Which is why used cars are going for more than they cost when new.
  12. w00t!! I just called and Lake Guntersville has a few sites reserved for situations like this. So, instead of one of the spots back in Section B, we will have a corner spot at site G23 (BINGO!) Thanks for the suggestion to call. I've been watching to reservation site every day to see if anyone has cancelled for some reason.
  13. Thanks gang. I knew some questions were probably a longshot since no one knows what the new Victron setup will be. I read through John’s Natures Head thread, so I knew some of the problems. But that was before wiring harness standardization. I’m sure hoping wires are where I’ll need them! Some of these questions *were* asked during our visit, which is why I’m asking here… Perhaps Jason will know when I call.
  14. Uh oh! The pile has already started! Yesterday FedEx delivered a TeakWorks4u shower mat, and tomorrow UPS is delivering a Redarc Tow Pro Elite brake controller. Monday a set of Firestone air bags will arrive. I know delivery isn't until March, but I don't want to be working under the truck in February in 10" of snow!
  15. Vent and power for composting toilet in standard model? What's there and not there if I want to switch to a composting toilet? Neither Deb nor I liked the seat on the Nature's Head, and think that we might get an AirHead instead. Currently, we have the standard toilet on our order. If, down the road, we decide to switch to an AirHead, is there power available nearby for the fan? I know I'd need to "T" into the vent, plus close off the drain for the OEM toilet and cap off the water feed line. I've searched a *lot*, and can't find where anyone has swapped toilets from the standard to composting, except John Davies' who's conversion was done by Oliver. What am I missing? And, that's four days worth of stupid questions, taken directly from my list of questions to ask Jason at Oliver if I can't find prior to contacting him.
