84?

Why can't we get accurate numbers from Airstream on how many were built? With a membership list at 42, it shows that we have become quite a large group. I think that it was See More that first told me the number was 84, but I can't remember where he got his information.

I'm friends with the owner of the local dealership. Maybe he has some contacts with corporate who can get that info. I'll give him a call this week.

Updated Group List

Here's the updated list of S/OS members. Growing pretty nicely now. I'll add my welcome to mpawilliams and DEITZ645 thanks for sliding aboard!

I exchanged PM's with 3 other Slide Owners yesterday, an 07 Classic 30', and two 07 Classic 34's. Our group could increase to 45 if they decide to jump on board. Come on down...the slidin's nice!!!

My only day off today. Some work in the yard and I've got an Easy-Start to install in Dorothy's AC unit. I'll try and get some more "invites" to join our Sliding Society out later.

Jack,

It would be interesting to know the "official total" just for grins and then the population of all AS's then figure out the percentages, rarity etc.

Tom,

I appreciate you keeping the list current and active.

Also thanks to all who have been spreading the word and finding members.

I'm a bit puzzled, working on my rig, I hooked up my new Honda EU3000is and ran the AC. It fired up nicely but 5-10 min later the overload indicator kicked in and powered down. Drat.

Now the troubleshooting begins, reading amperage, might have that soon figured out but getting up to inspect on roof, new territory.

I'm with ya...new territory on the roof. Made my way up there yesterday to see what I was getting myself into. Interior of the AC was really pretty clean. Now it's just figuring out how this Easy-Start get's connected.

You may want to search around on the Easy-Start threads for info on the gen issue. I remember reading some research that was done about various gen sets and what they were capable of providing. Something about how the load would collapse on some units.

Tom,

More to follow but IIRC the 13,500 Dometic runs about 1800W but it was already running and overloaded a 3000W unit. Need amp draw while running I think to really start some fact based diagnostics.

Up on da roof!

Not likely today.

That's what they were talking about... The unit would start and run for a few minutes and then it would collapse and go into overload. Sounds similar to what you're experiencing. I'll have to see if I can find it later.

Funny I thought my unit was a 13.5 too, but once I opened it up yesterday I found the ID plate said it was a 15k unit. Fun stuff!

Tom

In the early 2000's the 13.5 AC unit was the standard on all Airstreams 27' ft and up. I requested the 15k unit as an upgrade when I placed my order. Since most Airstreams are ordered by dealers for their inventory, they truly have a lot of control over how the trailers are configured. In many cases some dealers were quite aware of the suitability of the 13.5k units in their larger trailers and started placing orders with either dual units or the 15k unit. I know my dealer started order 15k upgrades in many of his big trailers prior to them becoming standard.

A fine looking 34' and a rainbow behind it, fantastic fan! Now, if your TV was painted and numbered the same as your S/OS# you'd be

Thanks for signing up from the big Lone Star State.

Well, the plot thickens. This trailer was sold in FL. That's a hint.

It took quite a bit of searching but finally found the model label and holy heat waves, it has a 15000 BTU unit. Also found 15000 upgrade on window sticker.

My 3000 might have suffered from a power management issue and owner not knowing it has 15000 unit. My converter MIGHT have kicked in and bumped it up by almost 1000W consumption plus 1800~W for 15000.

More testing to follow. More learning too.

I finally replaced the 13k AC after replacing the mother board, and the fact that it just couldn't keep up in 90+ weather. The new 15K unit is lower and keeps our AS cool.

I need to investigate further including amp draw then I might have something I can kick around.

I have looked at the micro air start but I don't even know the running amps or watts of my 15000 AC.
