Whatís the dot mean on the Sea Level?

Iím starting to think my $299 walkthrough was a little rushed. Again have searched the forum and the internets, got out the Sea Level manual and still no answer. When I press the Sea Level tank reader it gives me a read out, if I press again a red dot appears on the bottom right corner of the screen. Whatís the red dot function?

First—you had to pay for a walkthrough?

Second—the manuals for pretty much everything are available online. I’ve created a little online folder that is available on the trailer’s iPad with all the manuals on it as .pdfs for offline viewing. The only manual I had to call someone for was the Contoure microwave.

Third, the only thing I learned from the SeeLevel manual was that you can set an alarm and that the dot means “hold display”—here’s the description from the manual:

Quote:
To continuously display a reading, press and release the desired button, and then press the same button a second time. When the button is released, the display will be in hold mode, which is indicated by the decimal point on the right hand side turning on. While the display is in the hold mode it will recheck the held level every 2 - 3 seconds so the user can watch the level change while the tank is being filled or drained. The other tanks will continue to be scanned every 10 - 15 seconds. The display will automatically shut off after 5 minutes in hold mode. To end the hold mode before the 5 minutes is up, press any tank button, and the display will shut off.
FYI—not sure if this is why you can’t find any info, but in your post you misspell the name of the company/product. Per the label on the monitor, it’s “SeeLevel” not “SeaLevel”. Here is the website with the manuals.

I just can't believe you had to pay for a walkthrough!

If you press one of the buttons twice, or maybe it's if you hold one down too long, it will keep that value showing until you press another button. Supposedly so you could see it changing real time, but I haven't seen that to be very useful. When in that mode you will see a period (dot) after the value.

Is there a comprehensive list of every single manual that "should" have come with the AS?

I am missing my Contoure Microwave and solar controller. That leads me to believe there are other manuals I may be missing.

I'd love to have all the PDF's for my systems, just need to know what I should have and what is missing.

No, I donít think there is. There is a sheet that comes with your trailer (mine did, anyway) that lists major systems/appliances and their serial numbers. I went off that and added stuff as necessary (for things like driving camera, tank level monitor, etc.).

My notes state that I had to email warranty@contoureusa.com for the microwave manual. They sent it within a day.

Ditto.
However don't feel bad that you didn't learn everything. I had previous RV's and the tech was great, but the next day I realized I had about a hundred more questions.
I still have some. (I didn't know about the dot!)
Not everything can be answered in the manual.

Okay, Spartan I guess I'll be the.one rude enough to ask.

Where did you buy your Airstream?

--------------
I've heard tales that "CW" charges extra for propane tanks supplied by the manufacturers and a bunch of other equally outrageous stuff but this takes the cake.

OTOH, the internet has changed everything. There are no rubes walking in who think that 10% off list is a good deal, and the idiot sales people are so eager to close deals that they give away hitches, supplies, free camping nights, and on and on. Between warranty work and free labor on hitches and upgrades, most dealers are 3 months behind and losing money on their service departments.

I wonder if dealers are getting creative or just desperate to make a living?

Iíll speak for myselfóI did a lot of research beforehand and wanted a brief walkthrough/overview. I had a list of questions mostly in the area of safety and operational topics and they were all answered either during the walkthrough or in serial fashion afterwards. Just about everything else I can figure out myself and almost prefer to (it ďsticksĒ better for me).

Some stuff definitely warrants a walkthrough for some people, myself included, but really in the age of the Intertubes Iím not sure they have as much value as they perhaps once did. In fact I realized when I bought my truck that ďorientationĒ now is mostly a 20-something-year-old hitting play on a YouTube video and watching it with you. I stopped about 1.25 videos in.

I was also curious about the dot on the monitor and had an answer in less than 3 minutes. So time-wise I think Iím still ahead...

I definitely think that an owner of a new Airstream is, for lack of a better word, entitled to an orientation. Not sure why this dealer charged for it and that they did is very unfortunate.

Donít worry, OP, this forum has your back! (as long as itís not a question about hitches :P)

I'm with everyone else here: you should not have had to pay for your walk through! You should get your money back! Shame on them.

The dot that come up simply means that the display will stay lit for a few minutes so you can see it while you're dumping.......not very complicated.

Really. I would have a conversation with the management at that dealership and let the head honchos at Jackson Center know what's going on there. Talk about generating revenue! How dare they?

Appreciate you all and thanks nryn for the answer. I donít wish to speak badly of Airstream of Scottsdale (there it is, lol), they had the unit I wanted and their GM Ken wanted me to leave happy, so much so he gave me $40 cash when I had to drive back 30 miles after realizing my right side tail lights werenít working (fuse in my tow vehicle). Iíd happily pay for a walkthrough from a place like Colonial from a guy like Patrick, unfortunately the guy who did my walkthrough was a service person with an anti-Airstream tone. I actually requested he not be around when I had to return regarding the tail lights. Airstream of Scottsdale keeps their units inside and they are exceptionally clean, the dealership is apparently newish and owned by a guy ďmy ageĒ (Iím 36). Finally, Iím not even sure if I paid the walkthrough fee after negotiations and the negotiating was exhausting and made me feel like the bad guy. I think my next Airstream will be from Foley RV or Colonial. Mr. Foley is a real Airstreamer and I like that. I donít think a person at Airstream of Scottsdale owns one or really appreciates Airstreams and it kinda comes through. Finally, as a person with a psychology degree, they use NLP sales techniques which annoyed me.
