When It Isn't a Good Idea to Keep an Airstream Inside
Extreme weather here on the westcoast. Freezing temperatures a few nights ago; monsoon rain last night.
My AS lives outside. Someday I will have it under cover, but the upswing of it being outside now is the fact I can keep an eye out for any leaks while it is still under warranty.
When I brought my unit home, I discovered a small leak in the bathroom which was undetected while at the dealer because my trailer was in the nice dry showroom. That problem has since been fixed, but I am extremely vigilant.
A few mornings ago I discovered water on the floor under the kitchen fantastic fan. Oh no, not again! However, when I inspected the vent closely, I realized it wasn't fully closed, ice formed on the inside of the vent, melted when the temp. warmed, and that was why there was water on the floor. But I still inspected the floor under the vent closely after the moonsoon. Dry.
Just a thought that may help new AS owners. Of course, if you live in a dry climate, it won't be as easy to detect those leaks. I'd take the hose to it then.....vigorously and frequently....while under warranty.
