Black Friday/Holiday Sale Thread - Where'd it go?


Recommended Posts

Maybe my memory is worse than I thought. Wasn't there a thread to collect RV related sales posted by (I think) @Katjo? We're hoping to snag some goodies on sale before our March pickup.

There is a post I named: Favorite Camping Accessories. I think that may be the one you are thinking of.🤔

No, I’ve read through that one before. The one I saw was just a couple of days ago, but I can’t find it. Thanks anyway 

Maybe it was over on the Facebook group. I got banned over there yesterday, so I can’t look. 🤷

Omg, such a rebel..lol! Why did you get banned?! 
I looked and didn’t see any Black Friday posts but maybe I missed it. 
I’m sick with Covid (a not so nice gift from my husband) so I’m not on top of social media right now.

I hope you both recover quickly!

 

The folks who took delivery of #1292, the last of the 2022 models, ended up with a non-working toilet all last weekend in the Oliver campground. They were understandably irked. A very long and divisive thread resulted, then disappeared. After a couple days with no news, I asked what happened to the posting, and said that I hoped it wasn’t deleted so as to only show positive deliveries. 

For that, I was put in detention for a month, only allowed one post a day and one reply an hour. When I could next post, I asked what I’d done wrong, explained I’m not being confrontational, and asked that the detention be removed. For that, I was permanently banned. 
 

Makes no sense to me. First time I’ve ever been reprimanded in nearly 40 years of forums, groups, listserves, etc. 

Hey, you asked… 🤪

Assuming you are talking about the Facebook group?

Yep, that was mentioned in my previous post. 
 

Sorry, didn’t mean to get off topic in my own post. 😂 I was just trying to find the Black Friday list I’d seen somewhere, and thought it was on here. 
 

I’ve got a list of goodies in a wishlist on Amazon, and check every day to see if any have been discounted. So far, no luck.

Thank you and I’m so sorry that happened to you.  I do recall that post and wondered myself if they got their issue resolved.
If I recall correctly it was stated that the person that originally posted the problem had deleted it. 

You are a great contributor to the community both here and on FB, always so sweet.  I do hope they reconsider pulling that trigger and remove the ban.

Yea, weird. I wrote to the admin (using Deb’s account) asking for it to be reviewed and could she tell me what I did that was wrong. Just got a reply today. 

“Nope. too much drama”

🙁 I was really looking forward to interacting with the local owners on there once our trailer arrives, and joining their “Rolling Rallies” sub-group where members arrange gatherings. 

I sure don’t get it…

I remember reading that thread. We were in a cabin on the Magellan strait, outside  Punta Arenas, (and actually had decent wifi for 18 hours or so). There was a lot of drama, but definitely not from you.

Maybe you could start a new thread here on Black Friday deals for Ollies. I  promise we won't shut you down....

In the mean time, if anybody sees a Black Friday (or any day) super sale for the Houghton's, please let me (us) know.

Just got my morning e-mail and the RecPro black friday sale is on.  13% discount on their sale price = $826.  That's a really good price.

Not listed as a Black Friday deal, but Amazon has an $85 off coupon for the TST 507 Tire Monitor System w/6 caps.

Not specifically listed as Black Friday sale, but Amazon has a 20% off coupon on the Grohe thermostatic shower valve that some folks have installed. That's $58 off of the $291 Amazon price. I haven't compared this to elsewhere, because I'm not at a point where I know for sure I'll be adding an alternate shower valve.

TechnoRV's Black Friday Sale can be found HERE.

I was just perusing that sale from my email. Our new Oliver will come with a 30A shore power cord (25' or 50'?) And I probably should pick up an additional extension.

Do I need just a regular 30A plug, or a locking 30A plug? Thanks!

25 feet is what you get from Oliver.

In seven years I've only needed an extension one time and I used a 10 gauged regular extension cord for that.

Assuming that Oliver still uses the same type plug as always then - a regular (non-locking) plug.  Hopefully a 2022 owner will confirm that.

Bakflip - the maker of tonneau covers for pickup trucks - is having a Black Friday sale.

If you contact them - DO NOT simply buy anything at the posted prices on the website.  If you either call them or "chat" with them you can get an additional discount.

Our Elite II picked up 15 days ago came with a locking 30A, 25' power cord.  But, we purchased a non-locking extension cord beforehand just in case.  Since the primary cord Oliver supplies has a locking collar on only the trailer end (not the pedestal end), any extension cord does not need to have a locking collar--just a Ziploc bag to protect the connection between the primary and extension cords if it rains.
