The Waiting Room

We’re lucky that Curtis is allowed to join us in the waiting room while the Airstream gets serviced.

People who use their trailers a couple times a month probably don’t have so many things to check or fix at their 1 year service appointment. Our list includes:

[list type=”numlist”]

  • annual service

    not sure what’s involved but happy to get it. – 3 page inspection checklist

  • inspect check valve

    our fresh water tank filled up when we were on city water twice in a row, and has been fine ever since – water pump replaced

  • cabinets over dinette damaged

    screws coming through cabinet from our last service – added counter sunk screws and screw covers

  • missing rivets

    in kitchen cabinets and by bed – 6 rivets replaced

  • shower door stripping

    is coming loose – shower door sweep replaced

  • inspect backing plate assembly & hub drum assembly

    that was replaced on front right tire by non-airstream dealer

  • power cable from trailer to truck

    is starting to come apart – 12V cord end replaced

  • flickering LED in bathroom

    taking advantage of that warranty! bulb replaced

  • inspect sway hitch

    one side seems loose – tightened

  • wash trailer

    they always wash it, I just have to ask


By the way, I actually set the timer on the camera to get this “candid”.
