  1. Temporary tooth repair kit in mine... break a tooth, loose a filling, you’ll be glad you have it.
  2. I live on Schoodic Peninsula if you need any assistance while up this way. Should be around except for 8/22 - 8/27
  3. I believe the honeycomb core material is Nidacore. Very expensive, lightweight and very strong.
  4. Regarding the upper cabinet latches- a little blue loctite on the screws once you have the correct adjustment works well. Have not had any problems since one came loose last year. This should be done at factory during install. Without it, the road vibration inevitably causes them to loosen and the door to slip out of alignment and open. Otherwise it becomes a regular maintenance item. I have a late model 2015, which has the older drawer slides. With the older slides, combined with not overloading the drawers, I have never had one come open.
  5. I would just call and ask. It would also involve moving or eliminating the water pump switch that is in the bathroom.
  6. I don't think the panel is substantial enough to be made into a door or hatch. It would be nice though to have the option of one or the other at the time of the build.
  7. That photo looks like the one I posted when I had to work on the bathroom heat vent. The "unsecured" wires belong to the redundant water pump switch that is located in the bathroom for convenience. There needs to be plenty of slack in the wiring to allow for the removal of the panel. The panel is quite thin so it would be difficult to secure it, perhaps with the exception of some kind of adhesive zip tie. The weight of the wires to the switch does make it difficult to keep the switch in place in the press-fit opening that it pressed in to. Care needs to be taken when removing the panel for that reason.
  8. Our door leaked after a driving rain. Rain water accumulated under the mat. I mentioned it to Oliver when I brought it in for an upgrade and they added an additional gasket around the door opening as pictured below. Haven't had the issue since.
  9. I've never seen any toilets for household or RV use that come with stainless steel toilet flange bolts. The bolts are not supplied by Oliver, they come with the toilet from the manufacturer. Perhaps replacement bolts from a marine head manufacturer such as Raritan have some made out of stainless steel.
  10. Coffee at the campsite first thing in the morning is our ritual as well, just as it was when we were boating. We get whole beans from here- https://www.fontecoffee.com/ And use a slow, burr hand grinder by Hario, and make it pour-over style into one of these... https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01I4NQCYC/ref=mp_s_a_1_5_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1500856404&sr=8-5&keywords=melitta+carafe Takes a while, but worth the wait.
  11. I Look forward to your follow up report as well. I have been trying to decide on what product to try. I was surprised at how many tiny chips I picked up on my last long road trip.
  12. Sorry, but I'm at a loss trying to understand how it is either Olivers or Zamps fault that the solar system doesn't keep up while parked in the shade. Why not park in the sun and take advantage of the long summer daylight hours?
  13. I use one of the inexpensive Expedition covers occasionally, depends on where I am and how long it is going to sit. I use a pool "noodle" to slide over the sharp edges of the bumper, steps and solar panels to keep it from cutting through. As Trumpet guy says, if it's just sun you are concerned with, a good coat of wax will do just fine. I am based in Maine during the summer, and I like to keep pine sap off of it though, so will slide the cover on to protect from that. I will also cover if it will sit for extended periods while in FL, but mostly to keep the curious away more that anything else since it is kept on a storage lot. If I get three seasons out of the cover I will be happy.
  14. Oliver thought of everything! Now I can plan a trip to Roswell, NM. now back to the thread......
  15. The only reason I considered buying an Airsteram was I wouldn't have to wear my foil hat while inside, only outside, but went with the Oliver anyway. Worth the inconvenience.
