Have been super busy and was hoping to have #62 home by today but the info I've received from our area Airstream rep is that there's an order of laminate that's late, backing up our unit by at least a week. Wishful thinking on the "special line". We just go with flow of all the other models being built. If ever you have a chance take the factory tour. I was impressed. This is the only factory, and they build for the entire global market. I had stated this somewhere but the number of backordered units is over 1350!!! They hope to hit 85 units per week soon but with the new facility comes many new workers to train.

There is a special plug on the cable coming out of the "black" box" from XM/Sirius that goes only one place on the back of the Audio unit in the 2015 23D. The other opening is for the antenna lead coming from the external antenna. The "black box" gets it's power from the audio unit.

Pendleton #62

Holy Cow! Our Pendleton has arrived!!!!! We're on our way soon just to see her, and see if our dealership in Buda TX can have the prep completed by Friday. Much to our surprise, she was trailered here, not towed. Exciting day!!!

When trying to attach a photo it rotated it 90 degrees. Not sure how to fix that, but will post some pics when I can.

Congratulations and enjoy the "new" experience. Make sure you are not rushed by the delivering dealer on your PDI walkthrough. Get a good checklist and also a separate checklist of the accessories that come with the Pendleton. Lots of boxes of "stuff" for these that aren't normal delivery items for other Airstreams.

My walk-through at camper clinic for our 2016 Eddie Bauer 27 was thorough and not rushed. They were patient with all my questions and were quite detailed. I was there a few weeks ago and saw a Pendleton behind the building. Wonder who got that one.

Congrats MarkFinATX!

Yes, please send pictures when you can! Also, is the dealer installing any accessories? If so, please list.
Thanks,

This is the intermediate part I acquired from Amazon to go between there XM/Sirius antenna and the audio control head in the 2015 23D International; Serenity that was XM radio "ready":

Congrat's!! We picked ours up Friday and camped all weekend just got her home. They rushed the walkthru, wasn't impressed with the dealer we purchased through or the service. But, I guess they thought they could act that way, knowing we were going to get it no matter what!!

Let me guess - it was the only dealer in Virginia, Right?
Frankly, they have such a turnover rate that their probably isn't ONE qualified person in the dealership who actually knows that much about ANY of the inventory.

Go to youtube. There are a lot of videos from Colonial Airstream (and others) that show you how to use various components. I've seen SO many people who have tortured their awnings into pretzels that it is not funny. the most common mistake is to hook the pole that should go from the top of the Airstream to the roller on the awning - and instead hook it to the pull out height adjustment stopper on the bottom pole. The awning droops at a 45 degree angle, the door rubs on it and both poles are stressed so much that they bend.

I always offer to show them a better way (Never say the "right way" it hurts feelings!) to get more height and depth on the awning

Yes!!! The RV place off 95!! Our sales guy is pretty good, he responds right away to text and such, but the service YUCK!!! The finance dept. the lady that works there is AWESOME thought. I would of bought from Colonial in a millisecond but they already sold their 3 Pendletons. I love their You Tubes and you can tell they love Airstreams.

Sad to see #74 at the mothership in a sad state among other trailers lined up for repair. Did anyone here have 74? Can't tell if it was damaged at the factory, on the way to a dealer, at the dealer or post-sale but the cling wrap is still on the stone guards. Don't know how that cap damage could have happened.

gosh

Poor #74, I'll take her if no one else wants her! I'm sure that's a big repair, and it has to be done right. No Airstreamer ever wants to see these kind of damages. MPJ
