Gail,

Oh No!!!! I'm sure that is exactly where mine is leaking. I dropped it off yesterday and I was able to show them the water on the floor as it had just rained. The water comes in through the front, then under the counter/refrigerator and runs all over the floor. I'll try to attach some photos.

2017 Basecamp Issues

I see a small separation on the seal behind the propane tank but haven't had any leaks. Drove in pouring rain home one time too. But it makes me want to extend our weekend trip another day just to make sure.. rain in forecast Sunday night... among not wanting to go back to work Monday!!

Yep, I'm pretty sure mine would do the same. The seal around the refrigerator vent on mine would definitely let water in. Thank you for sharing Katherine.

I wonder if Airstream is going to say 'if it doesn't leak, we won't replace/repair it'? I'm not really interested in pouring water on mine just to see if it leaks.

I called my dealership and asked if my camper was part of the recall and they said "no". I assume, if you filled the water tank to capacity, you would see water either on the ground or inside the camper, on the floor, around the table bases.

Gail,

The way they explained it to me is that if you filled the water tank to capacity, it would leak into whatever compartment the water tank is stored in. I will see if I can get a copy of the service bulletin.

Luna Sea Shake down moves forward..

Had a great day with the Luna Sea (My BC). I spent some time with the Manuals.
I hooked up my new B.Ox, all good, easy peasy. Then towed her around the neighborhood off Gulf roads a bit. Felt good. Then in the lot behind the house I took a few shots at backing. I have mirrors ordered, so I did not have any extension. Used the bottom of the steering wheel... and no she does not behave like the 18 foot hobie... tough luck that ! So practice is in order.

I'm putting this in issues, just cause I love my BC (Luna Sea). And if there are problems in shake down, so be it. In our previous 4 streams there was always an issue. What matters to me is my Dealer Foley RV is first rate. I have never had a problem they did not solve. Ditto Airstream. And my Luna Sea is beautiful, she is not the Beta Demo they had early on. So anyone considering one. Don't miss taking a look.
She looks like Adventure

I'll update the punch list I come up with end of week. Thanks everyone for sharing.

I have not noticed any water leak but I have not filled the water tank to full; I picked mine up 1 wk ago; I do agree that the gas tank compartment lid is a joke and a poor design.

2017 Basecamp Issues

Hey All, my back hatch door is a ridiculous PITA to open and only other issue I've found is my holding tank vent was not lap sealed or capped.[ATTACH]

That holding tank vent looks like a problem. Our back hatch door was initially difficult to open (it took both hands to pull the latch open), but I can easily do it with one hand now. It may (or not) get easier with time.

Another pointer on doors - the guy doing the walk-through with us said not to use the deadbolt when towing because they can get stuck with all the motion. Well, needless to say, the door swung open on the road (although locked) and we were lucky not to hit anyone with it. I mentioned this to the dealership and they said they "would have a talk" with the guy that told us that. SO, be sure to use the deadbolt when towing the trailer.
