  1. Elizabeth and I have an agreement in hand to sell #64. Assuming all goes as planned we will be trailerless after this July 2020 weekend. I know you will be welcoming to the new owners as they begin their journey. FYI, we are healthy When we bought 64, we planned to own it a couple of years to do some travel that was in our bucket list. We have owned her almost four years and the bucket is full, so rather than just have her parked, we reluctantly decided to sell. We do plan to continue to snowbird, but rather than months in a 23' space, we elect to rent a park home or condo. Wanted to
  2. My unit is considerably older than yours, but I suspect the valve is in the same location. Remove the curb side bedding, and open the forward large access door. (your unit likely has a smaller access on the side, which may (or may not) allow you to view the valve. Looking down into the compartment, you might see the water pump, some water lines, a HVAC flexible duct (mine is a shiny silver), and a bit further toward the rear, your water heater. Using a headlamp (or wife with a flashlight), gently lift the HVAC duct and look around underneath it. The valve should be there. It is small, and it i
  3. I was worried about dumping the black tank too, my only previous experience watching Robin Williams in RV. It actually turned out to be "not that bad". I suppose I do have a certain tolerance, however, for "yuck", perhaps from my days as a combat medic. I won't belabor the excellent points brought out previously in this thread, but do have two suggestions that I did not see mentioned in my quick read. First, be certain you have a secure connection to the trailer. That connection comes under stress as you pull, push, and bend the hose. Don't let it come loose! Secondly, I saw on you
  4. We crossed (North) at Montana after visiting Glacier National Park. The crossing was easy, with emphasis on wood and weapons. The agent was most interested in three things, our vehicle registration, our wood chunks for the grill, and whether we were carrying any weapons, including, specifically, bear spray. Oddly enough, we did not have a copy of our F150 registration. I typically drop that into my tax file when I buy tags for the year. He wondered how I could ever do that-"don't they check registration in Missississippi when you get pulled over?". I assured him that first, I seldom get pulle
  5. Snowball's photo could well be of my unit, Hull 64. The two front jacks were installed by the previous owner at some point in response to his wife's complaint (same as your wife). I agree they are an eyesore. I agree that there is some degree of risk in having them sticking out from the frame. They DO, however, help to greatly decrease trailer movement as you walk about the diniang and bath areas. That said, we never bother to deploy them unless we are to be parked a week or greater. The little rocking in the Ollie as delivered by the factory, does not bother us.
  6. I have a standard Suburban water heater with zero instructions regarding turning the second valve for winterizing. I generally turn both when emptying the fresh tank, not knowing what the second is for, and not even remembering at that moment which is which.
  7. My unit, a 2015 Elite 2, has two valves on lines quite close together at the freshwater drain. If only one is the drain, what is the other?
  8. Hey, Mike! Maybe you can share that 15 second lesson that lets you hitch in 30 seconds. Alabama rally would be a great time to do it. Maybe we could find two "contestants" and have a hitch speed contest (not me). I consider it pretty easy to use the Anderson, but it generally takes me several minutes. Rarely, I have to readjust the chains.
  9. Mr and MS Moderators, I apologize in that this seems almost certain to have been discussed, but I have done several searches and drawn blanks on "planner", "trip planner", and a few other variations. Since acquiring my OTT, I have done my initial trip planning on Good Sam's trip planner. It is not perfect, but has transported us some 19,000 miles without getting too unrecoverably lost. I signed on this morning to plan a route for a trip I am taking in two days to find that Good Sam plans to take down its trip planner effective April 10th of this year. They make vague promises of replacin
  10. Thanks to each of you who responded for the help with my connector. With your help and the grace of God, I was on #10 east by 9:30 am. Currently traveling from South Texas to South Carolina.
  11. I broke my connector. I THINK I plugged it in, but after possibly 400 miles dragging on the road there is not much left of the actual plug. The wires are still there (mostly). Wondering how to know which color wire goes to which connection after I get a new plug. Is there anything special about ours that a mechanic should know? I know I saw a diagram of the unit somewhere online but can’t find it just now.
  12. We are on a six week excursion in South Texas. The wife's reading light is inoperable and she misses it terribly. I was thinking I could simply pop off the end and replace the bulb with one from a lessor used light until I can find a new bulb. I see no place to open the unit. What am I missing? Oh, she does not want to change beds to solve the issue temporarily.
  13. Happened to us in Texas. We went away for the day, and left the bathroom sink dripping somewhat. By the time we got back to the site we had flooded the bath and upper hallway with water running out the upper hallway (at least it was clean water). A neighbor had noticed the water and turned off our water supply. From that day, to this, I turn off the water supply when leaving for an extended time.
  14. Looks to be a great trip! We will be doing somewhat the same, but starting at the MS section of your trip. We plan to extend a bit more west to include OR andall WA states. Once we complete this trip we will have all 50 states and most Canadian Provinces within our experience (not all in the Ollie-but many. Your route will bring you 13 miles from my home. See ya at the rally.
