Yesterday we went to Airstream Los Angeles to fix the leak in our fresh water tank.
It turns out the little part that connects to the tank (pictured on the left) snapped off. Unfortunately a patch wasn’t an option, so we had to replace the entire tank. Lucky for us, they had a spare tank in stock when they originally thought they were going to have to order one.
We’ve also had an intermittent problem with our tongue jack. Sometimes it wouldn’t go up, only down. Lisa in Service (pictured above) showed us our burnt fuse-like part which they replaced.
Once our repairs were done, they filled our fresh water tank, let us stay overnight on the lot, and gave us the wifi password. Lisa really went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of.
UPDATE: I contacted Airstream about the repair and they replied:
When tanks are full of water during travel it is possible for the tank to have movement and put pressure on the fittings.
Well that seems like a design flaw if we can’t travel with water in the tank.
