Pentek filters $6.99, shipping appears to be a flat rate $6.95 and they take PayPal.

Here is what we keep in New Lucy's outside storage lockers. In the front street side we keep the Sewer Solution hoses, the 30 amp electric cord, the surge protector, and a stack of legos.

I realize that this thread is quite long (nearly a thousand posts), but it might behoove you to read all of it since most of the information directly applies to the new Airstream that you are getting.

Brian
Brian,

I've read the entire thread twice so far. Great info from people who have your exact unit. ... Now wouldn't a gathering of 25 FB's be interesting. Have two cocktails and never know what AS was yours!

Anyone else with storage ideas?

Gary

All the overhead compartments are too small and the second best spot I could come up with was the shoe storage drawer under the dinette couch. It has to lay on its side and water just leaks out of it in transit though.

Now I am considering just forgetting about replacing Lucy's under-sink filter and going with the outside filter only. Does anyone see a problem with doing that?



Brian

Yep. We've spent 20 nights in ours now (maybe) and that water flow at the sink is really getting noticeably slower. It led me to believe the sediment in the water is pretty high and that's probably bad for everything else. I'm planning to go back to the winterizing hose and getting an inline filter.

Outside storage in 25' FB and water filter...
Storage on curb side locker, chocks, tools, front jack hand crank, paper towels, SwayPro wrench, portable light, plastic ties, bungies, 15' propane hose w/quick disconnect for bbq grill, 4 small propane cylinders. Street side locker, 2 packs of 4-lego leveling blocks, 2 fresh water hoses, cordless drill and bits (use the drill with leveling jacks), accordion sewer hose ramp. Front long storage locker, 4 folding chairs, adjustable folding table, screen tent. Rear bumper has awning rod, sewer hose, 30amp power cord, gloves.

In 2 portable 3' x 2' X 2' sturdy plastic bins, we carry a Colman 2 burner propane stove, a small single burner propane cook top, fire starter, solar lantern, hand axe, small saw, 3 lb slug hammer, table cloths, pancake grill pan, folding 2 gal bucket, 3 gal solar shower, folding dish pan, rubber gloves, grill gloves, grill brush/scraper, grill lighters. These 2 bins easily fit in back of F-150 and are not heavy. Easy in/easy out.

Also carry folding O-Grill and O-Grill table, portable shade cover in the bed area. Kayaks go on a rack system when we are going to use them.

Rest of our cloths, personal items, folding GoPro solar panel, dishes, etc. permanently store all inside AS. Any items we bring like food, wine, liquor, crackers, we carry in portable plastic boxes which slide under kitchen table while traveling, along with GoPro. We have both electric 8 cup and stove top coffee pots stored above spice rack. Although we have 1000w inverter and solar top off on AGM batteries, we have not used the electric coffee pot when no shore power; just stove top..

We have our inside storage "tweaked" to work for us after 7 years and 3- 25' AS's. The newer 25' and larger models with 3-4 storage bins outside on the twin models, is a great addition! The 27' and larger models have even larger outside bins, but we are happy with our 25...just miss the ducted air and now the louvers....maybe next year.

Water filter- We have been somewhat lucky with our fresh water connections. still using original under sink filter 45 nights, no issues yet. We also have a filter on our outside hose, but likely will change out now to make sure..

Brian, in your travels did you ever cross the Mackinac Bridge? We are heading in that direction after we close on the sale of our house in June.

Oh and post #1000! Woohoo��

Not Brian but I've crossed the Mackinac Bridge a dozen or more times with trailers. What did you want to know?

I see that they will drive it across for you, is it that bad? I'm normally skittish about things like that. Just wanted to hear a few stories.

Yes I believe they will drive it across for you. But since I'm a total Bridge Freak - I love'em - needless to say I've never used their service. I didn't consider it bad and there is a very low commercial truck speed limit - 15 or 20 mph. And you can never imagine in your wildest dreams how many souvenirs they've found in that area to put a picture of a bridge on!

OK, that doesn't sound too bad. Couldn't be much worse than the Hughey P Long bridge.

We crossed the Mackinac Bridge with Old Lucy about five or six years ago. As I recall it was a very windy day. We had to wait for about ten minutes to cross the bridge with two semis. We followed a Michigan State Police Trooper across the bridge.

I have been looking at a 25FB Queen and see that there is limited outside storage. Does anyone know if the 27FB with the bed turned 90 degrees has the same type of outside storage as the 25FB twin?

Thanks

Mike

I don't know for sure, but I would doubt it. The twins give full width storage at the front or rear.
