I have field-tested suggestions for these 2 points.

Bathroom vent-We found that keeping that bathroom window cracked open was important year round. Why? You are breathing in and out all night and the trailer will get clammy and uncomfortable if you don't have some way for that humidity to leave.

Important when running AC since it may not kick on much at night and you don't want to be hot and clammy.

Important when running the furnace too, because propane will add humidity to the space too. Don't want to be cold and clammy.

(on our current 25 we keep the vent open but off in the shower-same idea)

Bacon-Check out Costco already-cooked bacon. Just crisp it up. No huge hot pan full of dangerous grease to manage, but a nice bacon-y essence in the pan for cooking those pancakes.

I have the OEM Goodyear Endurance that AS began using in 2018. They have been great. Just got to keep them at 80psi for correct load handling.

But I don’t want to stray off this thread topic. So private message me if you need info or just search the forum for tire help.

we ordered a kitchen exhaust from AS factory. Its installed and works well. be sure to seal all the gaps before installing to ensure air only goes in one direction. instead of cutting a whole in the cabinet ( and loosing space) ours hangs below the cabinet ( its 2" lower that what the factory does)

We keep the sink window open a bit and now get a very good breeze from that window across the stove and out

look in this area for pics i posted some time ago

Actually, the furnace will not contribute any increase in humidity to the interior. The furnace is a sealed combustion unit with a heat exchanger, this means none of the combustion air (or the h2o byproduct) goes to the interior of the trailer.

Anytime you increase the temperature of air it decreases the relative humidity. If you are seeing an increase in humidity it is likely just due to having the small chamber that is an AS closed up more in the cool weather, and the humidity source is you and your activities within the AS.

Bambi 22FB questions...

Does anyone know if it is reasonably possible to modify the Sport 22FB:

1. add or expand the more fresh water capacity ?
2. add or expand the gray and or black water capacity?
3. add or expand the rooftop solar panel maximum capacity?

thank you!

I guess all “can” be done, it’s just a matter as to what effort and $$ you are willing to expend for said upgrade

I’d say
1. Freshwater Carry a Jerry Can
2. gray/black Carry a BlueBoy
3. Solar. You can probably get 400 watts up on the roof and another 200 watts portable.

How much solar do you actually need? Your first best path is to look at reducing how much battery you consume, then look at maximizing the charge window you have (lithium batteries?)...and then perhaps look at how to get more solar. The best way to get more than what will fit on the roof are solar suitcases.

Welcome AACreek! I towed my 2016 22'FB Bambi with a 2007 Tacoma for 15000 miles (until a recall on the frame & rebuilding issues!) I suggest you keep it at 60mph unless you need to pass, even then only up to about 65mph. Cargo storage in the camper is extremely important so don't carry weight in the bathroom...keep it forward. CanAm also noted that the Sport tows better with full freshwater tank. Do weigh your truck alone, and then truck fully loaded with camper. It is easy to carry too much so please be aware of your weight limits.

I now have a Tundra and after getting used to it, do like the heavier brakes and V8...but pay for it with gas mileage. Oh well there are trade-offs.

Happy travels! Be sure and go to some rallies...AS community is the best.

Also is a picture of some items that “shook” out onto the floor. I am hoping they were just left behind during construction and not anything important.

Thanks for all the input.

Unstable towing...

The AS rear looks a bit low...get level and check weight distribution. (returned weight to TV front axle and proper TW when hitched & loaded).
Shorten up your chains & cross under/between the WD bars.

First Airstream

We are brand new with our first RV is a 22 FB Sport. We took delivery 12/4. We have a Voyager Digital Wireless Monitor that I am having trouble getting paired.

The coach is in the driveway plugged into city power.
I backed the TV up and plugged in to the coach.
I followed the. Pairing instructions and it failed each time.
One of the responses was to turn them power onto the camera. I don’t see any switches on the camera so I am uncertain if the camera is not receiving power from the factory’s wiring or if I am missing something in the set up

The coach is not hooked up to the TV should I unplug city power or is this an install error and dealer help is required

I appreciate your help
Thanks
