  1. Galway girl you fixed the self induced problem I was fooling with the outside shower the other day and left the valves open and the wand handle valve closed thanks so much for your help on this make sure you post this where all can see Marc
  2. Thanks for all the helpful reply’s its dark here now and will resume the troubleshooting tomorrow. Marc
  3. Thanks John yes the breaker and the switch is in the normal run position and at this time I think the propane system is the only thing that is heating and after flushing the water is hotter but not real hot I’m wondering if the thermostats may have build up on them since flushing seemed to help. Marc
  4. The water temp has improved but still not normal the hot water light did come on inside the trailer after flushing and have not seen this light since I have been having problems, I have the gas and the electric system on. Wondering if I should pull the thermostats out and look for build up there. Marc
  5. Have not cleaned out the water heater this year so will do that now thanks to all I am traveling and not sure where I would find parts in the Sedona area. Marc
  6. Water heater will not run on 115 a/c and only gets Luke warm on propane anybody have an idea?
  7. My understanding is in the valve configuration for using the water from the water tank with the pump you can also use the city water am I missing something here. Thanks to all that have commented to this post.
  8. That’s not my problem the overflow and drain line exit just to the rear of the steps the video that you sent would indicate a leak on the left rear probably indicating a broke closed valve on the city water hock up
  9. Seadawg I’m not very good with this I have not found anything related to my problem
  10. I have unit #83 a 2015 Oliver Elite ll when hocked to city water my fresh tank fills up and runs out the overflow, I am using a pressure regulator at the city water inlet hose, when using the onboard water pump the water pump cycles about every 30 seconds and when shut off and allowed to set for a few minutes it runs for awhile to pressure up, there are no leaks that I can see and suspect the pressure is bleeding off at the intake to the fresh water tank, the pump was replaced a couple of years ago so I don’t suspect the problem is there I did take it apart and found nothing abnormal. Anybody have a thought on this, I’m thinking about putting a check valve on the intake side of the pump. Marc
  11. Alaaa Although`pretty and very strong looking we use a piece of 1/2 “ plywood and let it rest on the mattress tray this works well for us, I have wood stops on the bottom side to keep it centered and it folds in the middle with a piano hinge
  12. Here is a photo of my accumulator-filter-bigger water pump, this bigger pump is anything but Quiet but the added water pressure is great. Marc
  13. Just to be clear I found three of four windows leaking on my 2015 elite ll I removed the complete window assemblies reset them in sealant and have had no more problems (I have not resealed the four exterior lights) all I’m trying to say is it is very possible that there are more window frames out there that are leaking one way to ck this is to tape a piece of plastic to the trailer allowing the plastic drape over the window then a hose down the trailer above the taped area an ck for leaks if none are found pull the windows and reseal. Not saying the lights aren’t leaking but mine were not. Thanks to all who participate in finding solutions for problems we find on our units. Marc
  14. I will repeat again you can not look at any window seals because they are installed with sealant you can’t imagine how much water can come in with no signs of voids I’ll bet that the light are fine I also found some minor seepage at the Oliver logo light one way you can test for this is to tape a piece of plastic above the window a one drapevit down over the window do not try to run tape around the window frame these windows come out easily and reseal is straight forward (do not use a permanent sealant) Marc
  15. Hi Reed I pulled the windows and resealed them myself our trailer is Hull 83 2015 twin bed, we also are enjoying the left and right sliding windows being switched to slide to the rear the cross flow ventilation is much better when using the fantastic fan. I would not install rain gutters as they are not needed, let me know if I can provide any more info. Marc
  16. We found that two of our windows were leaking at the top of the frame so all windows were removed and resealed problem solved upon inspection the leaking windows did not show any gaps at the top of the frame but the reseal did correct this issue. During window reseal i was able to switch the left with the raight rear for better airflow when sleeping as we sleep head forward (the windows on my 2015 were manufactured so that the could be used in either left or right location. Resealing the window frames will fix your problem and rain gutters will not be needed. Marc
  17. We also experienced water in our basement after washing the trailer, didnt seem to have any problems with rain water. My correction was to rework the latches so that they would pull the door tighter into the seal, this was necessary due to the fact that the latches were adjusted as tight as they would go (needs to have a different inside lever shape) and could not just be adjusted tighter, I also added some additional weather striping and have not had any problems since. Marc
  18. Hi John enjoyed the information on riging your new vehicle but really like your trailer garage I would really like more info and or photos as I will be building in the Kansas City area in the future and would like to do this on the new house I would think that not having a monthly storage bill would offset the construction modification. Marc and Nancy Hull 83 Legacy Elite ll
  19. I had the same issue with my ipad photos and have since learned that the ipad needs to be held with the home button on the right in landscape mode and at the bottom in portrait mode it seems that the problem is in the settings on the pc equipment on Olivers end. Doesn't seem to be a problem on a Mac computer got to love them they just work. Marc
  20. Hey Buzzy missed you at the rally, the Micro Air easy start product works as advertised it's an amazing product I installed this on my trailer and can now run my Mach8 off of my Honda 2000 and has reduced the compressor start up bang that is normal on most RV air conditioners, I have not tried to use my inverter yet as I need to move the airconditioner over to the Inverter side of the a/c panel. Marc
  21. I talked to Scott Oliver at the rally and he said they were looking into a larger trailer, rumor has it that it may be a 31' and 8' wide but probably won't happen anytime soon, that would be large investment in tooling. Marc
  22. Anyone out there know of a quality storage cover that fits an 2015 Elite ll that has a serviceability warranty-is waterproof-has zippered access to trailer door.
  23. Hi Dave, the paint reacted like there was some type of oily residue on them even though I wiped it down with mineral spirits, it should have been all right since the Krylon was an oil based paint. I then tried rubbing alcohol and that didnt seem to help just must be a strange plastic. Marc
  24. With dry time a wet sanding some minor flaws it took a couple of days. In case some do not know all you have to do is pull the bottom of the shade out from the wall (just clips in at the bottom no tools needed) and lift up to remove also make sure the privacy shade is on the top when reinstalling. Marc
  25. We are getting everything except the bathroom, in order to do the bathroom the molded in sink has to be cut out fiber granite installed and an oval stainless sink installed so we opted to skip the bathroom. Marc
