  1. Just spotted an Elite II going south on 101 towards Florence Oregon :)
  2. Is it only when using the hot water? If it's actually sulfer then it also depends on the water heater.
  3. Yea..... Everything listed above and then some. 1/2" Hammer Drill with bits, SDS Plus with bits. Both will drive awning stakes almost thru concrete really fast. A full set of wrenches from 1/4" to 1-7/8 that live in the truck tool box under the hood. Everything up to a 24" Crescent wrench that I end up using mostly to help others change their drop hitches to level their trailers more often then I thought... Then the 4" angle grinder with both cut off and grinding wheels. Still my most used tool that stays right under the driver's seat. Then this year for the first time I started carrying my Dremel tool with a ton of different heads and that has really become one of my most used tools. Yes... There's lots more but that's all mining related like my metal detectors, a #2 Shovel, rock hammers, and then there's the blasting equipment, but that's another story :) Reed
  4. Look at both, it really depends on your wife and how much space she needs. If I was single an Elite would be huge but after having a Casita Liberty Deluxe, we found that she prefers a lot more room for her kitchen supplies. We have one cupboard that's simply full of different spices in our Elite II and she loves it as do I. As a couple, I would definitely look at both because the Elite II really isn't much bigger. Reed
  5. That sounds like exactly the one we almost bought Jim. Just make sure that a front passenger can sit comfortably. We almost bought the 2017 fully loaded crew cab ecodiesel Laramie but the floor of the passenger side was uneven and not suitable for extended driving times for the front passenger.
  6. More changes in 2017... I just have the upper fan and the switch on Hull #200
  7. If they have changed the gaskets, that's a good thing ? They started putting the new lights on the 2017's and the gaskets were leaking then. I looked at the pics of the new 2019's and it still has the same lights. It takes a few months to a year for it to start but being that this has been a known issue, you can call Jason and ask if itsi been fixed. Captain Tollye's is a quick easy fix either way and even though the new gaskets leaked some, the real big black streaks from the old lights and their gaskets is long gone.

  8. Just open up the outside upper cover John. Reed http://olivertraveltrailers.com/topic/refrigerator-boondocking-vent-mod/
  9. Mine seems to have fixed itself for now. It closes completely again and we haven't had any problems with it in a couple of weeks. I went to push down the pin last night again and it was closed again for the second time. It was up 1/2" when stuck but now it's maybe 1/16". I will still be checking the plunger after I dump, but that's just normal routine now ? Reed
  10. That was great info Bill ? I have the Suburban heater and wasn't sure what was in his trailer. It had the reset! That's good to know ? But your info has opened my eyes and we'll be coming to you when we need some teaching ? Thanks Reed
  11. Did they show you the reset switch under the rear curb side access door? You should call Jason if you didn't and have him walk you thru it. Have the door open when you call. It could be a priming problem in the gas line also. Turn off the tanks, remove both gas lines from the tanks, then reinstall and turn them both on. If you have the rear propane access port then you can bleed it if necessary but start the stove, then the water heater, then the heater and see if it works. I've had it happen once on Hull #200 and it worked. Ours also had a thermostat that wasn't programmed right and shut the heat off every night at 10:pm until I read the manual, reset then changed the programs over to furnace... Reed
  12. Along with the ones listed above there is rvparky and park advisor. Then we always use state lines and roadtrippers. One app would be nice but... Ultimate campgrounds is still on top. State Lines tells you the driving laws in each state and they really vary. Reed
  13. Just a thought, I would turn the bolt so it's at the top just to make sure it can't rub a hole in the hoses down below ?
  14. We have one 10' Rhinoflex connected with a regular straight cap, no need for the extra valve for us because as soon as you raise the hose, if it has something in it, it stays down below bumper level. We used to run a 15' piece but found that the 10' section works for 90% of the dumps that we do in state parks. Reed
