[/IMG][/IMG]I just bought a 1976 Airstream Sovereign
with bed in the back.
I am a new Airstreamer and don't know much about this camper at all.
The guy I bought it from didn't know much about it either, he told me everything works. Well??? Maybe it did when he used it.
This is my biggest problem. I put water in the fresh water tank with a hose and the water comes pouring out the bottom from a plastic hose and from around the edges of the pan that is bolted under the belly below the fresh water tank. After filling it I checked and the console in the galley said the fresh water tank was full. I turned on the water pump and heard it running, only a few drops came out and within 2 hours all of the water in the fresh water tank had leaked out of the bottom and the tank was empty.
So, I hooked up the city water to the hose connection and hoped that I would have water using this option. When I turned on the water from the City water connection the water came gushing out again in the same places.
I'm wondering if there is some kind of drain valve open somewhere or if a pipe broke somewhere in the belly or if the cold winter last year in (Missouri) caused a split in the fresh water tank.
Can some of you long time airstream owner weigh in on this and steer me in the right direction.
Any help will be appreciated. I will try and attach some photos.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
