When I purchased my 2001 ASCL 31’ almost all of the cabinet doors and overhead locker doors were mal-adjusted and thus hard to latch/unlatch; I guess due to the haste of manufacture. I adjusted all of the offending doors and then slathered a little Chap Stick on each latch interface which has since allowed every door to latch with only the closing hinge spring momentum.

Additionally, all of the overhead doors only had one spring strut supporting them which would not hold them all of the way up. The first time I was at Jackson Center I purchased additional spring struts so that each locker door now has two each.

Also, the outside storage compartment door locks had to be adjusted and oiled to work seamlessly.

Most of the window latches were OK, with only a few needing adjustment.

The more you adjust and fix, the more the AS is “yours”, until after a few years you may be able to say that it’s ALL “YOURS”.

The two pillows that came with the trailer - totally useless!

I never used them - put them in the overhead bin. They fell apart when I pulled them back out.

Airstream, I love the orange bedspread; it's so well-made and warm, but those pillows!....

Question

......you got pillows for your bed?

We got about a dozen of those square upholstered pavement stones.

I had to chuckle when I saw the photo of the pillows....as I recall immediately taking them to the trash. Even my basset hounds have better stuffing in their toys than what came in those pillows....

Update: The dealer replaced the problem catches with something really, really good. I've hit a few potholes and lept a few curbs - violently! - all the cabinets have stayed closed.

The pillows have been replaced with ones from Bed, Bath and Beyond. Problem solved.

One thing that has always been "so right" is the furnace. Holy Moly, it was cold last night. Minus 25C inside the trailer when it was time to go beddy-bye. Jacked the furnace up to 75F and jumped into bed as fast as I could. Woke up two hours sweating! The inside was like Death Valley in July. Turned the furnace down to 65F and was really comfortable the rest of the night.
