Thank you Silvery Moon. You took the time to post some very useful information for new Airstreamers. I found some of your links very informative for me. I bet Dr. Jack will too.

David

Hi, David. I'm glad you found our post in this thread to be useful. Looks like Dr. Jack hit the road and didn't come back no more, no more, no more, no more. Only one post and then, "He gone!", as they say. Hopefully, he's out there somewhere, happily Airstreaming.

Glad we could help. BTW we recently learned that with our TPMS we also need a repeater, here: TST 507 Repeater |TST Trucking Systems

With the repeater in place we seem to get a much more reliable signal from the TPMS to the receiver in the cab of our truck. We had it wired into the battery disconnect switch for the trailer so that it only runs when that switch is on. Otherwise, it would kill the trailer battery. The repeater sits inside the cover for our propane tanks, so it's very unobtrusive and is protected from possible damage. We put it on the trailer rather than the truck so that if we change our TV we don't have to re-wire anything.

We bought a 30ft Flying Cloud as our first ever RV. It took quite awhile to select this model, but after visiting several dealers and sitting in all models from 25ft thru 30, we settled on the 30. Considering the length of time we hope to own it, and take into retirement we wanted the two year warranty as buffer to our learning curve while limiting physical breakdowns that would cost us in the long run. Heck our biggest decision was the hitch not the TV or size of AS.

I'm still here. It took me awhile to find this thread again. The whole internet thing is confusing. We did buy our Airstream and named her The Cloud Atlas. Trying to figure out how to post pictures of her. Our house goes on the market one week from tomorrow after the last small update will be complete. We will probably camp around here for a bit to get acclimated and keep an eye on the house. Does anyone know how to post pictures on here? The wife started a Facebook Blog about our travels. She named it Jack & Elizabeth's Excellent Adventure.
