Parts dept?


Recommended Posts

I need to replace the plastic threaded piece coming out of the back of my toilet that connects to the water supply line. I also want to purchase the Oliver front hitch storage basket. I don’t see a tab for parts anywhere on the Oliver site. Do I need to call the factory or can someone lead me in the right direction thanks.

First, I would suggest getting the plumbing part from a big box store.  Almost none of the plumbing is "special".

For the aluminum storage box, suggest you ask if any of the owners who have upgraded to the nice enclosed boxes would like to sell their unused OTT aluminum boxes.  Likely get one for half price...

I recently sold my used cargo box and purchased the Sea biscuit custom locking cargo container and am very happy with it. If I were looking to add a cargo box I would seriously consider this option. It’s more money but you do get a lot more dry lockable storage and it’s very well made. David Hess the owner of Sea biscuit and his team craft fine products built to custom fit to Olivers right in Tenn and they ship. There are other much less expensive cargo box options as well.
If you opt to order from Sea biscuit you will need the Ubolts and plates from Oliver to secure the box. Mike Sharpe at Oliver Service can sell and ship you what you need. We store ALL of our immediate go to set up gear in this box with room to spare. It leaves plenty of extra room in our TV bed. David & Kristine Hess will be at the rally if you plan on attending. We are very happy with our cargo box!


Cheers Happy Camping!

The service department will coordinate with parts for you, or at least they did in the past. 

 

Call Service, or better yet, use their chat it seems to work better by opening a ticket.

Patriot, do you maybe have part numbers or size of the ubolts and plates from Oliver? I’m hoping to source this kit up here in Canada rather than paying and arm and leg for shipping from Oliver.

Hopefully either today or tomorrow I'll have these very parts arriving from Oliver and should be able to get you either the numbers and/or sizes.  I'll let you know when I get them.

I received the parts box from the Oliver Service guys/gal about 7pm last night.  Below are some pics of what was in the box.  Note that the U-bolts and appropriate washers and nuts are nice stainless steel. Here are the measurements:

two - stainless steel U-bolts with associated hardware measuring - 8"x3 3/4" x 3/8"

two painted steel plates measuring - 6 1/8" x 2" x 1/8"

one dense rubber pad measuring - 10" x 2" x 3/8"

one dense rubber pad measuring - 43" x 2" x 1/4"

Does anyone have pictures of their front basket installed?

It is obvious where the two U-bolts and steel plates go - but - it is not so obvious as to the exact location of the rubber pads.  I suspect that the long rubber pad must be cut into at least two separate pieces in order to pad the existing fiberglass from the bottom of the basket.  Also, I assume that the basket is located as far to the rear as possible.

Thanks for the help!

No pictures, but I picked up an OEM basket in Hohenwald and installed it at home.  I installed it with bolts instead of the u-bolts.  I placed a rubber pad under the u-channel in front and on top of the fiberglass over the V shape of the frame, as well as a piece side to side at the back of the basket.

Here ya go Bill. First pic shows the front U-bolt installed. The second shows the rear top and the front top looks about the same, hole centers likely 3/4" from edge (eyeballed, more than 1/2" for sure). Place washers on the U-bolts first. They look the same front and rear.

John - 

Thks a bunch!

Can you see the rubber that is between the basket and the fiberglass/frame?  If yes then I'm guessing that the rubber under the bracket in the front of the basket is slightly thicker than the rubber that is between the basket and the fiberglass?  Also, what is the direction of the rubber strips between the fiberglass and the basket - I assume that the strips run side to side at the front (just behind the front u-bolt) and at the rear (just in front of the rear u-bolt).

Looks like long rubber in the back, perpendicular to the trailer (see pic). The short piece parallel in front (mine looks like duct tape there).

Do you remember the length of those bolts and the diameter?

The holes in the basket I have are 1/2 inch and the u-bolts that Service sent to me are 3/8 inch.  I think that I'd rather use bolts (in order to fill those holes in the basket better) but from the looks of John's install his u-blot appears to be a bit long.  Also, did you use stainless or galvanized?

When @mossemi mentioned bolts, I first thought bolting to the frame. But then looking at my first picture above, you could just bolt to the same kind of plate below. You do not really need the U- part that goes in the tray. It could be just 2 bolts with washers. If you already purchased the U-bolt kit, I would just use them. I would think the bolts should be 5/16", 1/4" is too light and 3/8" overkill. The length should be the height of the frame plus an inch or so. Mine look long, like I should cut off the extra thread!

@topgun2

You’re going to have do some math, which you are very good at.  After all, who else can make a keeper out of every trout you catch?  

My SS 3/8" bolts measure 7" long from the bottom of the basket, so you will need to add the thickness of the bottom of the basket and your washers.  The bottom of my basket sits 7/8” above the main beam.  I used a piece SS flat bar stock measuring 1/8"x 2.5"x7" instead of washers in the front and the base of my bike rack, which is bolted down inside the basket in the rear.  I used the OEM flat bar stock underneath with 1/8" Styrene Butadiene Rubber between the flat bar and the aluminum frame member.  I used a sheet of 3/8"x12"x12" Styrenes Butadiene Rubber cut down to size between the fiberglass and the bottom of the basket.

FYI:  my basket is solid aluminum, not the expanded aluminum version.

Bill, I found this picture and post from John E Davies, the picture shows the position of the rubber strips. Not sure if jd's is the same, but looking at this picture from John, there's a rubber strip lenghtwise on the front of the box between the 2 gussets/L brackets (probably the 3/8" thick), and the 1/4" thick one diagonal in the back. Below is the picture and HERE'S the link to that post.
