Systems information

Our home in Baton Rouge was recently flooded and I purchased a 31' Airstream Sovereign to live in while we try to rebuild our home. This was an internet purchase and, unfortunately, it is not in as nearly as good of shape as I was led to believe or as shown in the pictures. My first step is to ask where I can find information on how the original systems should look and function. Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you need the owner's manual. What year? Have you rummaged around to see if it's in the coach?

Thanks - I do have the owner's manual, but was hoping to find more technical information. Any suggestions on sites to purchase parts? I appreciate your help!

Service manuals are available, I believe from Airstream. Appliances are not specific to Airstream. Specific Airstream items can be purchase online from Airstream or from a dealer such as Out of Doors Mart. Vintage Trailer Supply and Inland RV are also sources for Airstream specific items.

I can't help, but I did want to wish all of you folks in Baton Rouge the best! I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you and your neighbors.

Sorry to hear about your problems with the flooding. I have relatives in the area that also were flooded out. You can find service/owners manuals for all the systems on the Internet. Google the product for links to their web sites. Sounds like you also might be in need of a good fraud lawyer. I would not recommend here or the Internet for legal advice, you need a real flesh and blood lawyer. Good luck.
