Hi rockie72,
The Airforums is a good resource for just about everything about Airstreams. Lots of people with lots of experience.

If you are looking for a club, check out Region 11 of WBCCI

WBCCI.org

Region 11 has local units where ever there are enough Airstreamers. I think there was a Guadalajara unit years ago but they are no longer active.

Jerry

rookie 72,rookie 72, Howdy welcome to the Airstream group. San Maguel is a great town I've been there twice. The last time was about 1974. I stayed in this small but great little place. I 've included a drawing of the place. I don't know if it's still there. 78 was a long time ago.

thank for answering

hi Neil, Im very happy to receive messages so quickly. I didnt expect so.
Im surprised I found nicepeople in this site.
My name is Alberto Nuez de la Pea and I live in san miguel allende. Mexico.
I just bought an airstreamer. I,ve already changed the floor (wood) and painted it. I just tried to connect water with a hose into the city inlet but water is not running i the inside. I think it might be the pressure regulator. Some leaking ocured in the rear and under the kitchen. Maybe you can have an idea of whats happening.
Sorry about my english.

Assuming that your plumbing is the same as mine, those are likely the two plumbing line drains that are still open from when the previous owner drained the lines to prevent freezing. As I mentioned in your other thread, you need to close the valves that I described. When you turn the city water on, it just drains out of these two points and will keep doing this until the valves for those drains are closed. We'll get it figured out for you!

Sorry about my english.
You have blockage in your water pipes somewhere. Begin where the city water enters. Begin with he first faucet in the system. Does the water flow? If not then it is most likely the regulator. You can remove it and just use a regulator that attaches to the supply hose...but DO use a regulator. If your trailer still has the old copper pipes they will be weak and are most likely the reason for the leaks you say that you have. Ideally you should replace all the copper with Pex but since you probably are anxious to begin camping you can replace the plumbing gradually. But DO repair the leaks you have now because the water WILL rot the floor and may have to some degree already.
Neil.
