Cheesy key ring

Attention: Jackson Center- the little Jackson Center key ring that comes with new trailers is pretty much useless. It comes apart too easily in my pocket leaving the keys all loose in my pocket. The keys also come off too easily in the console of the pickup. The key ring has been ditched for one of the old style round key rings that I have to spread open and work the keys around the circle. Them keys ain't getting' off tha ring.

I agree. Sell me your Classic AND the key ring for $10k and be done with it.

It does help in finding the opener though.

A brand new trailer, and he complains about a key ring.

May that be your only problem.


Regards,

JD

Don't throw it away - people pay big money on eBay for the worthless things.

Andy,

Sorry... didn't intend to hijack this thread. What I was referring to is the 120v wall plug in the bedroom of our 2009 27'FB International. I was planning to swap out the stock 120v wall socket with one that also has 2 USB charger outlets for our iPads and iPhones but found out they were too deep to fit in the space between the outer and inner skins. While reinstalling the original plug socket I broke one of the two clips that holds the 120v socket plate tight against the interior wall. I believe they are called a "pawl for flush mount speed wire sockets" a friend of mine also referred to it as a plastic swing clip. I called Inland RV and the woman who answered was going to talk to you about this

Thanks for your help,

FYI that was not the only problem. There was so much damaged or broken by the factory or dealer that I almost didn't take delivery. I don't think it is too much to expect or great expectations for everything to be just right in a trailer this overpriced. The reason for paying 5 times as much money for this trailer than I paid for my previous other brand trailer was to not have these problems. Don't get me wrong, I love my trailer. As the most expensive thing I have ever bought in my life I was hoping for a little closer to just right. I do think Jackson Center could come up with a better key ring. I also wish there was a switch to turn on the water heater in the kitchen, but I'm sure there is a good reason why there is not.

m.hony,

A short read to inform that your not alone.

Some progress has been made but 'kinda sad that QC issues are still apparent since that thread was locked.

A "PDI", (pre-delivery inspection) is supposed to be done by the dealer, prior to delivery.

That then brings to the surface whatever problems there might be, so that they can be corrected, prior to delivery.

Airstream certainly has no problems paying for those corrections.

But, unfortunately, some dealers really care, and some do not.

The choice is always the customers when purchasing, besides the selling price.

Cheap selling prices usually, but not always, is a good sign of minimal servicing.

Andy

The dealer is paid to check out everything, so whatever they sell the trailer for is independent of the final check out. But our dealer didn't care either. You are absolutely correct that Airstream and the dealer should get it right the first time—the key ring is a symbol of that carelessness.
