Questions on 2013 22' FB Sport

On the 2010-12 Airstream sport 22fb's has anyone had a problem with the dump drain scraping the ground? Is there a place for a skid be made to wrap under and protect it?

Another question is jacking it up. Is there an axle mounting plate on them where a bottle jack can be used?

The reason I am asking , I don't have it yet but will in 8 weeks.

There is a lifting point (plate) on all airstream trailers. At that point any ack can be used. I believe it to be just behind the axle.

Do get an owner's manual and follow the instructions.

I do not know about your other issue other than take is slow when pulling over driveway to street aprons.

The 2008-2012's are all the same underneath. There are four jack pads that are marked, none on the axle. The waste valves are protected by two verticle skid devices. As far as I know i've never scraped the valves.

The valve plumbing on Airstreams is fairly low-slung compared to other brands of just have to be careful when you enter driveways of gas stations, etc...take it slow and go at an angle so you are not hitting the uplift of the curb at the same time on both sides...and go slow. It has not been an issue for us.
