jomondnv...a word of caution. Both our pantry slide out and door above it came open during travel. No damage, but dog food, etc, spread about. A lot of weight in that pantry. The latch for that slide out would not hold. Installed a couple nice latches I found at CanAm RV which secures everything really well....if you remember to latch them up.


Talked to a repair tech at JC last month regarding the latches. He said they can change them out with a better holding latch. Apparently there are 3 pull weights available. Weak, medium, strong.

I was told it was an extra bolster for behind your back when lounging. Not sure about that though I have yet to find a place where it fits - I didn't need it making it up into a bed. If anybody knows for sure, count me on this list for wanting to know too

We have found no use for that cushion yet either. Might just leave it home.

Pick up our 26U from JC tomorrow, all is repaired or replaced. Will post result's.

My dealer too does not know what they are for. I found a YouTube video showing the 26 with all the lounge cushions laid out for the king size bed layout. There is was laying flat as a bed insert between the other cushions. I guess when they designed the bed/cushion setup they were short about 4-5 inches and this piece fills the spot. I'll test this theory out when I hopefully take delivery the end of this week. They are finishing up the 400w solar install.

Agreed!

Extra Bolster in 26U

Hello Everyone,

We use the extra long bolster at the head of our bed. My husband is 6'4" so we slide the mattress down the width of the bolster to give us extra length with our queen bed. It really helps.

We leave tomorrow (May 3rd) for Missouri to visit family. We are staying at the Big Red Barn RV Park in Carthage. Looks pretty nice. We'll be there for 10 nights so I hope it is nice! I would love to hear thoughts from anyone who has stayed there.

On our way out from Maryland, we plan to stop at Jackson Center for a tour. We don't have any issues with our AS (yet) so we are only visiting. Should be fun. Since we are arriving early afternoon, I hope we can get a spot for overnight.

We are very pleased with our decision to get the 26U. We love the layout.

Here's to AS adventures,

Mike

JC Service

Service completed. Chris and the JC team did a Great Job getting it out 3 Days early. Had Brent replace the wall that had bubbles. Also replaced piece above bath Door. Realign /Cut Etc. so the bath door now clears that cabinet handle.
2. Replaced TV cable from amp to TV.
3. Re-aligned Cabinet Door's (microwave etc.)
4. RE glue brush strip on screen door.
5. Install wheel to protect awning on Door.
6. Install missing Velcro on U-Dinette.
7. Replace broken latch on vent panel below closet.
8. Rotated 180 Deg's. panel below closet so heat duct will clear the install of
winterize kit. Had to re-position latch's.
9. Replaced 7 "Noisy LED" (Electrical Noise) light unit's to fix TV reception
problem.
Great Job.

Mentioned concern about Dealer install of WD/Hitch install. They had Russ
inspect and re-do hitch. Much Better !!

So Thank's to the JC Center Staff. We had a very good experience.

But Best of all we meet some Very Nice Owner's and got to share camping
and travel stories. "Airstream" owner's are the nicest people.

Just made it back home after 6 hr. drive,but now the truck is having issue's
Growling sound and shift problem's. Well at least the trailer is ready to go.

What are #'s 5 & 6? Also discovered extra storage under the dinette on the right hand corner and underneath the front cushion.. the dealer didn't know about it. I also called A/S to ask about the extra cushion and they don't know....go figure...

Knunut...... "5. Install wheel to protect awning on Door."

Any chance of seeing a photo of the wheel on door. I have the same issue as probably most AS's have.

Nice to hear you had a good experience at JC. We did to as we stayed there a couple nights as we passed by. Will probably head there this fall for a couple minor adjustments.

Re Service

#6 There was missing velcro on wall to retain cushion's in place.

5# Wheel is a Zip Dee Part, I believe it's "Door Roller PN# 1DR000.
