  1. Yes please! I would also like to review your list for our 3/8/23 pick up. Great review of your experience, thank you. Brian
  2. We love that park and we are looking forward to taking our new Ollie down there. It was not a good fit for a 30’ Airstream with a 22’ truck! Shrimp looks good too! Brian
  3. Agree Steve, 15 gallons is the smallest Black Tank we have seen in a trailer this size. Anything more would have been nice. Also agree on the “nature of the blogs”, them seem to be addressing a completely different crowd (Washer/Dryer or Dishwasher??) and then somewhat tailored to address Oliver owners. Brian
  4. Mike, Henry’s Lake SP is awesome, have you been to Mesa Falls in ID? It is not far from Henry’s Lake and has some great camping spots right near the lower falls. My wife is from ID, not far from there. Henry’s Fork (off the Snake River) goes through her dad’s property and on a clear day you can see the Tetons from his backyard. (Those are the highlights of living there..) Brian
  5. @Mike and Carol I had the exact same two comments! @JWalmsley please explain the Diverter Valve statement. Brian
  6. Sounds like a very reasonable approach. I can revert at any time. I will give this a while and see how it feels but generally the truck doesn't seem to "slosh". Good points, all though. Brian
  7. Firestone Airbags installed last week! Love them - wasn’t sure whether to use one fill port or two. I ended up putting the “T” in place and installing one. Brian
  8. @chuckstovall Chuck, while you are in there, you might think about replacing the valve too. I had several Dometic valves go bad and start leaking then someone showed me this aftermarket replacement valve. This thing is great. The spring is tighter and it flushes so much better. Find it HERE , worth preventing a future headache. Once you get both valves in your hands it will be clear which one is superior. If this company is making aftermarket parts for the Dometic 300 series, maybe they make a pedal too? Regards, Brian
  9. Most fridge boards are easy to replace. Have you tried Dinosaur Electronics? Check out their link HERE These guys make VERY reliable boards for most RV components like Fridge, Furnace, etc. I highly recommend them and they can usually talk you through diagnosing an issue. Best of luck with it, Brian
  10. Correct, and the best way to determine this is to WEIGH your trailer unloaded and fully loaded for travel. When I ran Goodyears on the Airstream I was happy to see they produce a comprehensive chart each year for their RV "Special Trailer" ST tires. I recommend the CAT SCALES app for your phone. When you go to the scales, open the app, put in the number and drive on. Once your weight is taken, you will get a notice on the app and an email with your scale certificate. It will show total trailer weight, rear and front TV weight and combined weight. Compare these to what your tire chart states for your trailer and TV and adjust accordingly. There is NO one-pressure-fits-all answer. 55 psi is probably a very good choice for the current tires given the "likely" loaded trailer weight. GREAT CONVERSATION, this definitely needs to be understood by everyone who tows! Brian rv_inflation.pdf
  11. @John E Davies Oliver did put out a video on the tires and tire pressure and stated it was 55 psi. It seemed like the video was an update to previous information. I agree, that does not obviate the need to a written announcement. Disregard...didn't see others had pointed that out. Brian
  12. From a conversation I had with them on the subject. When there was a rash of valve core failures, Oliver looked into it and found out their supplier had been putting balance beads in their tires without them knowing it. Some of the smaller beads were getting stuck in the valve cores and holding them open causing rapid deflation. Oliver is contacting all that were affected and sending them new cores with a gift card to cover replacement. I seriously doubt they will make a statement as to how many were impacted. I know I would not release that information if I were them. Just one on one to those who were affected. As for the other questions, they all seem valid. Brian
  13. By the way, if I remember the conversation correctly, if you get the 16's the tires will be LT, if you get the 15's, the tires will be ST. I had Endurance ST's on our Airstream. Brian
  14. I had this conversation with Rodney at OE-East but didn't think I had enough background/information to put it out on the forums. We are scheduled to take delivery on 3/8 and he indicated we "may" get the 16" wheels with the Goodyear Endurance tires. As someone mentioned, this was the tire that came with our Airstream and I have to say, I was very impressed. No complaints whatsoever and a far cry over the previous "May-Pops" Airstream used to use. May-Pops is a generic term for any of the cheaper, imported, oddball trailer tires that were prevalent in the travel trailer market about 10 years ago. I think all the manufacturers wised up to the liability they were creating and decided to bake the better tires into the price. I am on the fence on how I feel about getting the 16's versus the "NEW" 15's - it would be nice to start out with the more common wheel and not run into trouble down the road should I need to replace one. Overall, I think this is a good business decision and I am comfortable with it. Brian
  15. I have used this product for many years on trucks, motorcycles and campers. Take a look at BugSlide and decided for yourself. You will be surprised and it is gentle on all surfaces. Safe Travels, Brian
