Mary...Ukdude makes an excellent point about the survey. I had a minor issue that I mentioned in my survey and not two weeks later I was contacted by my dealer to correct the problem.

Sorry, I didn't notice that you had mentioned that you had already looked at the documentation. My apologies for not being more helpful.

If think that if you have a significant list of questions, perhaps it's worth another trip to the dealer for a second walk-through, this time recorded on your digital camera. This assumes he isn't too far of course. I don't think many dealers would object to you doing that.

And, as has been pointed out, please feel free to ask us if you can't make sense out of something. We have so many members, there's usually a few that have the knowledge you are looking for!

And finally, let me join in to wish you a hearty welcome to the Forums. Always lots going on here

Hi Mary,

We bought our Interstate in November. We knew nothing. The manuals didn't help either. ugh...a big learning process it's been!

This forum is your best friend. I was, and still am, on here all the time to ask questions. If it weren't for the kind and knowledgeable folks on this forum, I don't know what we'd do.

There's a thread on here about the power systems on the Interstate. I started it, because we couldn't figure out how anything worked. Do a search. I'm sure there's more than just the one I started too.

The more you can learn and figure out, the less stressful it will be!

Good luck!

congrats on the interstate, we also got a 2014 this last winter. have put about 3000+ comfortable traveling miles on it. here we have been getting a lot of rain recently i we found a LEAK!!! coming in on the switches panel behind the curbside passenger seat. Got my ladder looked at the roof and found a pool of water created by the sealants between the black and gray water yank vents and the awning. ( about 18-24 inches in length). haven't gone back to the dealer with it but giving you a heads up on it, and asking if you or others have had this happens?

I also have that shallow puddle created between the roof vents, but I don't think it causes a leak since the vents are well sealed on the outside. But I also discovered that Airstream had not properly installed those 360 vents on my unit so they leaked on the inside during heavy rains.

Thanks for all your help. Our virgin trip to TX in the interstate ended up being canceled because of a really bad tooth ache my husband had. Of course, strong winds with even stronger gusts didn't make the trip look like fun. Instead we are hopping on a plane later today and heading down for grandparent's day for our two little TX grandkids. Can't let a toothache or wind keep these grandparents away!
