Showed dealer photo of problem area and they were able to uncross the duct work without removing the cabinet. Now there is heat.

I wonder if something similar may have happened in the ceiling of the New Lucy?
I guess that it could be something like that. I don't have any idea what type of material the ductwork in Lucy's ceiling is made from. Looking up through the vents with s flashlight, all I can see is aluminum ductwork near the vent. I have tried to remove the duct screen for a better look. The covers don't seem to want to come off. I can see metal clips holding the duct screen. I'm afraid to apply too much force as I might damage the Lucy's ceiling.

I sure like the idea of ducted A/C if it works right. Our old fashioned A/C is noisy, but so is the ducted furnace. A problem with the furnace ducts is they are the flexible kind and the ribs in it causes a lot of air turbulence which makes a lot of noise. It is cheaper to install flexible lines because no special skills are needed to install ducts, but the result for the consumer is not good. I don't see any reason to trade. We like the double sink in our '08 FB and the other things no longer available.

I wish they had provided for a whole trailer filter instead of the undersink one. We use an exterior one too. It keeps some of the silt out of the water heater and faucet strainers plus filtering all of the water rather than just the sink cold water. A filter for both city water and the fresh water tank instead of the separate filter we have would be a real improvement. Those filters are cheaper than the undersink Moen filters too.

I'm with you, Gene. I miss Old Lucy's double sink. The big round "washtub" was a crummy upgrade. So was doing away with the 12 volt outlets and the good TV antenna.

New Lucy now has her LED lights installed in her various windows. Here are some pictures of her light show.

You guys liked those little double sinks? We thought they were way too small, and really appreciate the big deep sink, but you have to adapt to it.

The big round sink in our 2013 25FB International Serenity was metal and thus slightly more durable. The double sink in the Classic is Corian and more likely to become scratched or damaged. We were able to find a round dish washing tub in the UK for the 25FB. We found a small rectangular one for the Classic in the States.

We found a couple round containers which are grey, and work fairly well. We leave in sink most of the time to collect the dirty glasses and dishes. We just add dish soap and hot water when we want to wash. We first fill the other round unit with rinse water. It is not as handy as the square sinks we had in our 08 and 06 models, but it is a minor nit compared to the other improvements....hadn't thought about the Corian sink, but scratching is a good point...not sure that is a big concern to me....I like the Land Yaught sink also...the ducted air is very quiet...I may upgrade just for that feature...

Our issue with New Lucy's big round sink is that there is nowhere to have a drainboard. In Old Lucy and Little Lucy, we used the left bowl of the double sink with a dish drain basket.

Since we got new Lucy, we have been using a doubled over towel as a dish drainer.

CW sells a nifty little drain basket with a sloped tray underneath it that goes on the counter and drains into the sink. We store it under the sink.

We have one of those in the left sink in the truck camper. I'll give it a try in New Lucy.

Thanks, Brian

moosetags, this is an interesting thread on the changes between the new trailer and the older ones. I should think the marketing and engineering folks at Airstream would find it quite beneficial. It's the voices of the customer!

Lucy's night lights are quite special. South Beach!

I think double sinks are a waste of counter space. We have one in our 25fb Classic and I always leave the cover on the one side so I can use the space for an appliance. The round sink is a good compromise. Notice how much more counter space is available on the 23fb between the International which uses a round sink vs the FC 23fb which uses the double sink. Even at home I don't like my double sink. Much prefer one larger single sink.

On the 25FB, I don't think that the big round sink gets you any additional counter space over the older double sink arrangement.

Actually, I went out into New Lucy tonight and took another picture to mimic the one I had taken in Old Lucy some years back. It would appear that the usable counter space in a 25FB is greater with the double bowl sink than with the new and improved giant round tub.
