Yesterday we discovered that we have a leak in our fresh water tank. I guess the good news is that it isn’t our black tank. The bad news is we rely on our fresh water tank since we’re usually dry camping.
Airstream Los Angeles will be able to take a look at the leak Friday after Christmas, but they don’t have any fresh water tanks in stock if ours needs to be replaced.
We’re not rushing for hookups quite yet. Hopefully we’ll work out some sort of system to tide us over until this is fixed.
Oh, and in case you’re curious, I made a timeline of our repairs. The upside to anything that goes wrong with the trailer is that it’s blog material.
