In have had that issue also. When I have an electrical interruption, I check the easiest firest and continue on. My order is the GFCI in the bathroom, the breaker panel under the bed, and the campground breaker at the power pole.

I've followed your threads closely and thought it would be nice to meet you. I guess we'll wave as we fly over . (Quote from Marter)


We usually come through Lincoln on our western trips. We always do a trip thread with daily posts and pictures. If you follow the thread, you will see us coming through Lincoln. Hopefully, you will be there when we come through. We would also like to meet.

Lucy's western trip this year will probably start around second week in July.

my experience with trailer tires is that they don't lose much air over time. you can check them monthly is about all i would suggest. if one of them is far less in pressure, suspect the tire is not seated properly. visit you local tire emporium and get that fixed. i see a lose of about 3psi in some 5 months of winter non use on the AS as well as my boat trailer.

We towed Old Lucy over 60,000 miles with Michelin 16" LT's. During that time, I checked the pressure fairly regularly, but I don't remember ever having to add any pressure.

After getting our 25FB home and parked in the storage unit, I would check the OEM ST tires every week and some air would be lost. After switching to the 15" Michelins, the air pressure stayed constant.

I had the replacement 16" Michelins and SenDel wheels in the back of the truck when I picked up the 31' Classic. As soon as I got it parked in the storage unit, I swapped out the tires. No air pressure issues so far, but I check before every trip and before starting each travel day.

Due to our truck's air suspension having an air compressor, I put an air hose chuck by the license plate and can easily add air if needed with the air hose I carry in the bed of the truck.

"...my wife says: "have you checked the power pole circuit?" (REALLY hard to admit I missed the obvious!) what would we do without our partners!"

Well, we make extensive checklists.....works at least for going through a process of determining the "root mean cause" but not so great for keeping warm at night...

On Old Lucy I checked the pressure in the Michelin LT's for the first 15,000 miles or so, and never had to add any pressure. At that point, I started using a trucker's tire thumper and only checked tire pressure with a gauge when a tire didn't sound quite right or something looked off. In the remaining 45,000 miles of towing old Lucy, I checked pressure with a gauge about a half dozen times, and never found the pressure off target.

I also carry a Warn compressor in case I need to air up a tire. I have only used it to re-air the truck tires after purposely reducing pressure for off road travel.

Yea, wife has the check list....plug had fallen out of power pole...someone may have kicked it out on way to bathroom...but I should have known...learn to double check source first (and follow check list!)

inverter in 2015 fc 25

We just took delivery of our first airstream after many years of class A motorhomes. We have rear bed model.
Inverter function is a single ON/OFF button just below the battery/tank monitor in galley.
With inverter on and NO LOADS the inverter uses nearly 2 amps continuously. That would be approx 48 amp/he's from the meager battery bank. You will need to get used to turning the inverter off when finished with use.
Our new unit has a 1300 Watt microwave, so no good with this inverter.
For the price of these Airstreams you would expect a little better quality inverter like a Magnum Energy which has a search function and uses only a couple of milliamps while in search.
Our only issue is a bit much tongue weight. AS could provide an outside vented compartment under the rear bed and move batteries front to back.
Overall all works well, tows great.

Welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

Congratulations on your new baby. May you have many great Airstream adventures together.

Airstream does lag behind in some areas, but, all in all, it's the best thing out there. We have had three Airstreams and have used them extensively (1,500 nights/140,000 miles). Each time we have replaced our Airstream, we have done extensive research and soul searching. We considered all types of RV and all brands. Each time we ended up back where we started and get another Airstream.

Brian

We will absolutely look forward to this. We're retiring this month, just bought our tow vehicle (F-150 Ecoboost) and are zeroing in on a FC 25FB twin. My time frame is around mid-summer for purchase of the AS, but my wife is more on the late summer/early fall time frame. I'm saying why wait ;-).

After I finally caught my breath, it was only $7K more for the kitchen....if you ordered now...I'm REALLY impressed with the kitchen utility and storage space it appears to bring...a bar, kitchen counter space, all the drawers. The factory standard lounge is a waste of space for us. We rarely use it and really, don't have 3 extra folks staying with us...have a tent if needed for more sleeping! (and it stores up front in outside storage, with 4 folding chairs, a table, and screened in room/tent!) love the AS!
Where is this available?

Hopefully, we will get through Lincoln at a time when you are available. If you would care to look at Lucy's trip thread from last summer. Here is a link to it.
