Until the storm hit last night, everything was great. Small leak in the bath ceiling at a joint. Love the trailer, though.

I saw the "hurricane" chamber in the Airstream factory some years ago. The employees were all over the interior (gutted, no interior skins) looking and feeling for water leaks. Your dealer can find it and repair it easily. They should also report it to Airstream as I'm sure they will.

Maybe Airstream is using a "seal test" pressurized leak test system now. I should think that would be a more effective leak test. However, you are still dependent on a human spotting and fixing the leak.

Glad you like your new Airstream. Get ready for a little "buyer's remorse". It's normal.

Just got word from the service department at the dealer that the A/C unit was not torqued down properly at the factory. Easy fix, fortunately. Should be back on the road next weekend.
