  1. We have a 2017 Ollie and having the same and more trouble with the Furion. I've never been able to run the sound through the speakers. Almost got the time set on the Furion Receiver once. Furion seems a poor selection I believe for a great trailer. The small "toy" remote doesn't work well at all. I'm not a happy camper with this setup, but we can seldom use the radio receiver anyway as usually cannot receive any stations. Maybe a portable outside whip antenna would help. No, the youtube video for running the tv through the speakers doesn't help at all on the 2017 Ollie. We need a "Rally
  2. Don, Another good reason for using an electric heater/heaters is some campgrounds furnish the electric but I don't think ever furnish propane. So, your heat is free if you are using their electricity. In fact, I'm going to a Texas campground in November and their electric comes with the monthly rent. We will just stay a month and then back home and to the Philippines in Jan. BTW, very nice meeting you in Fall Hollow Campground! Thanks for coming over to chat. The next morning I had to go back and get something else done to my Ollie. So sorry to have missed your great coffee!
  3. Dear Donk, I think you'll be ok if you want to go slowly at first. My old 1995 F-250 has 210 HP, but does have over 400 ft. pounds of torque. It shifts down ever so often in the molehill mountains of TN and KY, but really does the job fine. As you can see my truck is 22 years old and needs updating badly but I'm waiting to find a "Good" buy. Thinking of a Ford F-150 3.5 Ecoboost or I might go for the F-150 diesel coming out in the Spring of 2018. I have found a nice truck I like in a town not far away but the $63,000 price for this F-250 diesel with SuperCab, LongBed and 4X4 and Lariat u
  4. yeah, I was just down there and left Irog! I'm so lonely I could cry. Latest high price for a sale was $75,873.00 with an Ollie all decked out with everything. At least two of those in line are Demos. I know #181 is there made before mine. #265 is there too and I think it's a demo. They are making different front bins now. Should cost less for them too. There is a large one made from sheet aluminum and a smaller one too. They are running five weeks behind on maintenance jobs now. I'm not sure that's a good sign, but I imagine many people want their own mods and many others are having
  5. Someone on "Oliver Trailer Owners"-Facebook suggested to blow out the lines with air compressor first and then just pour a small amount of RV anti-freeze into the sink drain, toilet, bath sink and so on. Make sure to drain the hot water heater. Go to the maintenance site and read it please or the manual. Do this please: Go to "Trailers" on the Main Menu-click it> then go to the bottom of the list-"Oliver University" then click on YOUR trailer 18-5 or 23-6 and Volia (there is) all the info you could ever want. Well, maybe not, but just call your sales person or Jason or the factory and
  6. Loved your true story! That's the best kind of story! How awesome you thought to take along 15 gals of extra gas. I know you felt exhausted as I've made some long drives myself and after 16 hours of driving it's hard on the buns and everything else! Glad you made it safe and your home was ok. Rhett and Dory
  7. Actually, I've thought about this for a long time. I'm talking about a real leather recliner, well 2 of them side by side. My brother's large trailer has them and can't think of a better way to relax. Can the Ollie be custom built low enough where the twin beds are now to install two nice recliners or maybe one recliner and one bed? Many of my older friends sleep in recliners anyway. I spend a lot of time in mine with a laptop on my lap and when the tv was going I had it blaring in the background, no more though as I rid my self of satellite TV recently. Just wondering!

  8. It would be nice to know what your tow vehicle is Carol. I have an old Ford F-250 diesel and I have pulled the Ollie at least 75 mph for short distances and I've had no trouble at all; and I don't use the Anderson hitch. The Ollies are perfectly lined up and really don't need a sway hitch?, I don't think. Do you have the Legacy Elite or the Legacy Elite II? The real reason for hitches of this type is to transfer weight from the tongue (rear of your vehicle) to put weight evenly on all four wheels or your tow vehicle. You can do this by using airbags that keep your tow vehicle level when
  9. Thanks for writing a very interesting story! Enjoyed it much. We, like you didn't take long to make up our minds once we saw an Oliver. Hope to see you at the 2018 Oliver Rally. Don't forget to grease Roamy's undercarriage about every 3000 miles and check his batteries once a month. Our Irog (Sweetheart) took almost a gallon of distilled water on the first fill-up.

  10. Thanks GrayGhost! I bought this Black & Decker on your recommendation alone and I'm not sorry. This little booger will suck a golfball through a garden hose. I spilled salt in my trailer not realizing what was in a jar. It will easily suck up grains of salt and anything else. It's easy to clean the B&D too. It does occasionally take filters though. I can still get down on my knees and do the floors if need be but if you are too old and decrepit you might want a vacuum with a long handle. This one folds up very small too. To me it's an all around great vacuum for our Ollie. Th
  11. I think it's much easier to find a slot without full hook-up. Remember your Ollie is made to boondock, dry camp, wild camp. Are you going to stay two weeks somewhere? Two months? You are young never mind about hooking up and dumping once every 10 days. I'm twenty years older than you and I don't mind it. Use the shower room and toilet at the campsite and you can go for weeks without dumping. You will have thousands of more places to camp if you can do this! Otherwise, you need 30' camper like my brother and stay six months. You might have to plan a year ahead to get a nice place in Te
  12. What? I am still buying things! I bought a triple Stanley tool box set today. Where is the list of 200 things? I have 500 tools I imagine. I'm feeling very down and it's all because of SeaDawg! lol
  13. Everyone is different and packs differently and different things. If you don't have something, someone in the trailer park may loan it to you or sell it, or give it to you. Best way to find out what you need is find a pard or relative who camps right now and question them and go out and camp with them. And as you have more experiences you will know what you need to carry and where. So many questions and so little time. Go camp 25 miles from home and see what you're missing!! Some people may never take water cans or propane tanks as the trailer has these! Depends on many things such as wh
  14. Yep, taxes, title, and registration in Illinois cost over $3600.00. One of the poorest states in the US. And insurance for one year was $445.00 I can really appreciate you folks who are using your trailers a lot of the time. I'm not getting my money's worth right now. Wife still working, but the time is coming when I hope to be on the road much more. BTW it's a good idea to tell your insurance company you are getting a new travel trailer before you go to pick it up or even get the title info from Oliver and have your trailer insured BEFORE you pick it up as it's a Tennessee state law that
