  1. Hull 724. Picked up in January. Ran into a few snags but nothing OTT and I couldn't handle EXCEPT one. There is a humm coming from the speakers when I use Blu tooth on the Furrion radio. I've had that radio out so many times trying to isolate the problem and I would really appreciate some help. First I figured the hum might be from the solar connectors...they are in the same box and carry serious electricity. Alas, no. I flipped the solar panel switch and the hum remained. Just for good measure and because I like to organize rat's nest I wrapped the solar electric cords in copper tape to prevent electric interference from bleeding into the Furrion radio. The next thing I tried was to fix the ground loop thinking that might be the cause of the hum. I bought a 30 amp noise filter https://www.amazon.com/Install-Bay-IBNF30-Noise-Filter/dp/B00691PDQK but that didn't work either...even after grounding it to the head unit housing and then, when that didn't work, running a ground wire from the receptacle ground and using that. I thought maybe trying to use the black ground line from the Furrion but I don't think that would make a difference. I might just have to deal with the hum. Would really appreciate your help. Thanks all!
  2. Hi, We’re deep into research for our first travel trailer purchase and love all the helpful info shared in this group. We would like to see an Elite II with twins in the Southern CA area but there aren’t many owners that live out here. If there is anyone with an Elite II twin bed model that is traveling to/through LA or Orange County and is willing to have us visit please let us know. Thanks Jason for the help so far and suggestion for this post. Matt & Beth Frederick
  3. We have an E2, hull # 701.picked up in mid December. Just trying our air conditioner for the first real test. As soon as it started up, we could hear what sounded like the impeller was in contact with something that caused a loud noise. Seems like the blades are still turning but contacting something they are not supposed to be hitting. I looked at the AC material supplied by Oliver but there is no model ID info. I tried to call the company directly but their initial phone message stated that customers needing tech support need to have the model and serial number. - does anyone know where to find that information? - has anyone had a similar issue and, if so, how did you deal with it? We are happy to open the housing to see what there is to see. Hopefully an easy fix but not sure whether to lift the shroud from the top of the camper or if there is a way to see the guts from inside.
  4. Hi. My husband and I are looking in to getting our first camper and have fallen in love with the Oliver Elite II. We have only seen it on YouTube and would like some reviews from you guys. We currently live in Sweden but are hoping to retire in a few years and then spend 6 months on the road in the States and 6 months in Sweden. Have you got any advice for what we should think about when it comes to full time even living in an Oliver?
  5. Sorry to change the subject ... is that a Toyota Tacoma? What year is it, and how does it do with the weight of the trailer?
  6. Hi Everyone! We haven’t had our Ollie out for over a year. Picked her up in February 2020 and took her out for a spin. We went out West and when we came home Covid hit. Two weeks ago we had her tuned up at the factory and now we are near Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Park in Kentucky. So far everything is going pretty good. A few hiccups but we are working them out. Planning on doing some hiking and fishing. Susan Barnes Hull #590
  7. What size camping mat do you veterans recommend for our LE II that goes into production on Wednesday?
  8. We finally made the trip to storage to check the trailer (after 10 weeks) and found dead batteries. We've had them tested and all 4 are toast so now we need replacements. Lithiums are not a player at this time for us but we want to know if the Trojans AGM are the best option or is there a better choice? Since we don't want to go thru this again what is best practice when storing for longer than a month? Disconnect them, cut off switch of some sort, etc.... There has to be something better than bring them home.
  9. We have an Elite II with the Zamp solar package including the zamp port on the side of the trailer. I would like to cover our Oliver with an RV cover (possibly the CalMark) when not in use which would, of course, cover the roof-mounted solar panels. There is no electric service at the storage lot and I'm considering purchasing a small external solar panel that I could attach to the rear bumper outside the cover and keep my AGM batteries charged while in storage. Does anybody have experience with this kind of set-up? Would a small 20w panel with controler be enough? So far I can't find an adapter for a non-Zamp panel that would work with the zamp port on the Ollie. Anybody have a link to one? Should I just connect directly to the batteries with alligator clips and will the battery door still close and lock with charge cable? Considering these two options from Amazon... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RZBVTGR/ref=syn_sd_onsite_desktop_34?psc=1&uh_it=289e09821f35644186bce4efffe39f69_CT&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyVjJNNDU3V1ZOM1MwJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwODM0Mjc3MzFXMU9DQjIzSEgxTCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDU4MjQzT0U5SFBPSFEyR1pMJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c2Rfb25zaXRlX2Rlc2t0b3AmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl#customerReviews https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072B5J7CF/ref=ox_sc_act_title_9?smid=A2D22KZJD14Y8Y&psc=1 Appreciate any insights or help!

  10. New to Olli ! Need to buy a used 20'+ TT . Selling my house in LA Porte TX & will live in my trailer while visiting friends & family. Then hopefully find some land with a small house & sell my TT.
  11. This picture is me ( Rosie Dog ) dreaming about the OTT EII we will be picking up very soon. ( early March 2021 ) My people friends ( George & Marybeth ) are trying to imagine what my sleeping arrangements will be and could use a couple of measurements that were not to be found in the Oliver University Measurement Document. I had a nightmare the other night that instead of being with my pack sleeping in a warm cuddly pile I was outside chained to a picnic table. Makes realize how lucky I am that while too many of my kin folk have to endure such challenging and sometimes dangerous conditions , I stay warm and cozy. ( I am 16lbs and 13 yo so while I don't need a big space to sleep, I do need help/ramp/steps getting to high places ) Here are the helpful Measurements: (a) Width of floor at Beds: ?? about 25" ?? (2) Width between Bed Rail: ?? about 18" ?? (iii) Height to underside bed rail: ?? (IV) Height to top of Bed Rail: ??
  12. Larger Dinette Table Having a properly sized dinette table contributes significantly to the pleasures of life in an Ollie. That’s how Sheila and I feel after I modified our dinette table to add 4 1/4 inches to the table’s length. What a difference a small amount of additional space makes. We find it more comfortable, now have room for morning computers and coffee, and indoor dinners are more gracious. Also, I can now put both elbows on the table if I want to. We have had a desire for a larger dinette table ever since we picked up our Ollie (hull 217) and got some experience under our belts. We camp as a couple, never set up the third bunk, and don’t like having a table that is too small because of the bunk design issue. Oliver wasn’t interested in making a larger table when I broached the subject. Why mess with a successful product? But hunkering down to avoid corona virus gave me some extra time, and I used it to modify my existing table to see if I was on the right track. I worked up a design that used material from my leftovers bin, and which would allow me to undo the mod if it didn’t pan out. Unless you are really looking for it, the additional table length is not readily apparent. Aesthetically everything still looks proportional. The added length doesn’t interfere with the refrigerator door, and there is plenty of room to move about. While the pictures below show what I did, this isn’t really a how-to-do-it report. My goal is to stimulate Oliver. My hope is that the powers-that-be at Oliver will order a mock-up of a table like mine to be made, sit at it, and confirm for themselves how much nicer it is. It is my hope Oliver will then authorize a supplemental mold for laying up the larger table, offer it as an option to new buyers, and make it available for purchase by existing owners. I would be one. If you think you might like a larger dinette table too, please tell me in a comment to this string. I would like to ascertain if there is actually any demand for this, and if so, report same to Oliver. And if you are so inclined, please contact Oliver directly as well.

  13. To remove the interior a/c cover do you remove the red or green screws or both ? And what type tool is needed to remove these screws? Thank you , Bobby
  14. Anyone have a fan solution for the Elite II twin configuration where each twin bed has its own dedicated fan, preferably with remotes? Perhaps an odd request, but there are limits which must be addressed in order to maintain a more perfect union, establish justice, and insure domestic tranquility. David
