Congratulation on the Wedding Anniversary.Thats a great gift. It reminds me of a true story where a lady left her husband at Home in Canada and said she needed a little time to herself and was going to visit friends in the States.She packed her own TV and headed out.SHE returned home to Canada about 2 or 3 weeks later,while her husband was at work.She didnt return empty handed, she surprised him on thier 25th wedding anniversary with an AS she had purchased while she was here.
Congrations again on your wedding Anniversary and the new Trailer

Congratulations on your anniversary and the Airstream. The rig is really nice looking. Next comes the interior decorating. Our Bambi took on an Asian theme...lots of bamboo and teak. I must say that I like it.

Anyway, welcome and enjoy!

That is one sweet Airstream. Congrats on the anniversery. My vote for next year is a shiny new tow vehicle to match it. Don't sweat the leak thing. Everybodies has sprung a leak a time or two. For all I know it's been raining in mine for the last forty years. Well done!

Well we got the AS back from the dealer and went out this weekend (Sat thru Mon) for the maiden voyage. Woke up Sunday morning with water on the floor. It did not rain. We had the roof fans open during the night. We never turned on the AC but in the wee hours of the morning we did close the fans and turn on the furnace. The water was coming from under the closet (the one next to the fridge) wall into the bed area. No water inside the closet though. There was not water in the back area behind the fridge and the drain tube was dry.

Thought well maybe it's water that was already in roof from the other leak. No joy. All day Sunday the water was seeping out from under the wall.

Woke up Monday morning and the water was still there. Actually soaked up into the blankets that had shifted from the bed.

So back to the dealer she went. No idea how long she'll be there this time.

Not a happy camper here.

This is starting to sound like a plumbing problem. Good luck.
Have a great day!

First of all Machead, I am confused. Nothing strange in that, but in this case it's about your 2008 23' FB. My 2008 brochure does not show a 23' FB. Later, Airstream started making a 23' FB, maybe in 2009, certainly for 2010.

But it does sound like a plumbing problem. In our 25' FB there's a lot of plumbing under the closet next to the fridge and it includes the water pump. There's a hidden door under the wardrobe that you have to pry open with your finger (it opens to the left in ours) and then you can see all the stuff under the closet.

Leaks are part of the Airstream experience. Some of it is the inevitable result of pulling a trailer down the road over bumps, potholes and bouncy roads. Part of it is sloppy construction and poor design on the part of the Airstream factory. We've had 5 roof and window leaks so far, most fixed under warranty, but the warranty is over. Part of the supplies to take with you are sealant (no silicone, doesn't work on aluminum), caulking gun, and collapsible ladder. And towels of course. One of the strange parts of the Airstream factory tour is when they show you a trailer being water tested. It's strange because you know there will soon be leaks and they don't blast the trailer hard enough.
