We have the microwave/conv on our 25FB and I am happy with it, except that the controls are lower than anyone would like. The microwave is plenty strong; we regularly use Stouffer's, Lean Cuisine side dishes to go with whatever I grill. The package direction times are fine so the oven wattage is fine. As for convection, we have baked cookies and broiled bread with cheese. I had a gas oven on my boat for 20 years and I like this better.

The microwave pops corn. That is all I need. Haven't tested the convection part.

You said the magic words, "Stouffer's Lean Cuisine". That is our primary diet. If Lucy's microwave can handle can handle these, we are good.

Tell us how the new stationary TV antenna compares to the old crank-up type.

Brian,
Trying to learn how to reply! The switch on your new 25ft Flying Cloud will be to the left of the range hood just under the tank read outs. There are specially marked outlets that use the inverter power when you flip it on. I was told it will power the tv for a couple of hours when dry camping. We are so excited for you.

I have to read the convection directions every time I want to use it that way. I do heat up coffee and soup on microwave a lot.

I do cook, but it's a PITA for one person, therefore I try to cook six to eight servings of anything that reheats well. Then zip into a boiling bag, vacuum out the air and freeze, or throw onto a covered plate for one or two days in the fridge if I plan to use it sooner.

Cooking and freezing is a very economical way to dine. And if you cook for three or four days, you can eat for the rest of the month without doing more than boiling the occasional egg or throwing together a salad.

Things like stew tend to get better as leftovers. Also you can roast a turkey on day one, make turkey sandwiches day two, pick the rest of the meat off the bones, add veggies and make turkey pot pie on day 3, last leftovers make turkey noodle soup. (even the neck meat goes in that!)

The 2015 convection microwave seems to have just bit more power (YMMV) and works great for us. (second unit that we have had one in ... (we prep food at home before we leave and use the micro to finish / warm it up) DW often has fresh choc chip cookies, muffins, or rolls to share with other campers before I have the rig completely set up! Convection uses a bit more power, but the microwave side is fairly efficient - even if you use a gas gen for power. It is efficient and fast for hot water for coffee and hot choc - can't beat it!

The lower mounting point prevents spilled hot items in the face as may happen when spill arise from upper mounted units. We like it!

However the stationary TV antenna does not provide the selectivity for a good signal from marginal sources...ughhh.

Hi Lorie and Jack,

We're glad to see that you are now on Airforums. As you can see, we have gotten a 2015 25FB. We are still on our trip, and will pick up the new Lucy after we get home. We enjoyed meeting you in Seattle, and seeing your new Airstream.

Brian

We live about three miles from Topsail CG. We have not made it to the Can Opener for the last several years due to a schedule conflict. Hopefully, next year we can at least come by and visit for a while.

As I remember, on our 2013 25FB International Serenity, the 600 watt inverter could power the two televisions and the electronics bay and an outlet under the dinette table. These were all a different color than the shore power only outlets.

We are now back in Santa Rosa Beach with Little Lucy (23FB). We will spend the next few days getting all of our stuff out of the 23FB and cleaning her up.

We are scheduled to pick up our new girl (the 25FB) next Thursday at the Airstream Dealer in Defuniak Springs.

Brian

we are going to pick up our 25 FR 2015 twin in one week. We upgraded from a 22' sport 2013. It was a a dream to tow and very reliable. We needed a better bed configuration and just more wide body room for longer stays and hauls. Very excited and we will be asking service all about the inverter and capabilities. We have an inverter in our Tow Vehicle but it does not power much. Forget a hair dryer on these inverters.

I bought a 2015 FC FB in August. Aside from replacing the water pump the first week I am very pleased with it, and have towed 4,000 miles since I got it.

The antennae is so-so and I have installed satellite. (I have an addiction to baseball and college football, mea culpa....)

I will be having a solar install by Lew Farber in November, and then I foresee a lot of boon docking in the southwest.
