I changed out the hot/cold hoses so it'd be hot when pushed back and cold when you pull forward (which is the way the sink in the lav is set up). After I did that, I decided to put in one of the Moen sensor faucets in the kitchen. I sold the Kohler to a new home owner who was delighted to get it. I'm guessing that since there is no "H" or "C" or Red or Blue indicator you get your choice. One thing's for sure, it takes awhile to get hot water through the kitchen faucet as the water heater and HW tank is down there under the lavatory sink. Having just done a week boon docking it bothered me to waste so much water waiting for it to get hot in the kitchen. And, no, I am NOT going to install a recirculating hot water system!

Has anyone figured out how to remove the drawer from the villa sofa or dinette seat glides?

Removing the drawers from the Villa furnature us easier than removing the wooden drawers. Locate the black rubbery plastic bits on each slide. Pull them out slightly and push the slides back slightly (~1/4" ) relative to the drawer body to unhook the tab on the front of the slide from the retainer on the drawer. Do this on both slides and the lift the drawer off the slides. Reverse to reinstall. Sorry I don't have photos. Hope my words were clear enough.

Poor QC

We had the same problem with our 2015 Int. Serenity. You would think(at least I would), that for a product as expensive as an Airstream is, that they would take a little time and ask for customer feedback and fix these manufacturing errors. We had doors the mirrored door in the bathroom's latch pull out of the wood, moulding in the bedroom come off, and sawdust everywhere, USB charging stations that mess with the TV. You would think that the dealership would give the vehicle a good once over prior to delivery. I just think they need better Quality Control. Unfortunately as long as people like us are whiling to buy them they aren't going to spend any money to change. Shame on us.

I have another observation I want to see what others experience.

I recently had to refill propane for the first time. I had trouble removing the propane wing clamp that holds everything down - mine would not spin freely. I had to use vice grips to hold the threaded rod and use a lot of force to unscrew the wing. After a whole turn it started turning freely. It was only using about 1/2" of rod threading and the top thread was trashed.

Looking inside the wing I see something I don't know what it's called, but it's a "spring" of sorts with a circumference nearly that of the inner diameter. It's embedded in the thread which was preventing turning the wing beyond 1/2" and was gouging the top rod thread. It also appears there's a gap inside the wing thread in which this "spring" could potentially seat into... seemingly if it did, it would not interfere with the ability to clamp down further than 1/2".

Does anyone else have this issue or know that it's by design? I'm wondering if the spring is misplaced or if it is there deliberately to only allow the wing to clamp down so far and not have the threaded rod protrude through the top of the wing.

Jeff Photos? I don't have a 'spring' on mine at least that I am aware of.

The "spring" could be the treads striped of the out from over tightening.

Could be a threaded insert for stripped threads in the aluminum. These were used with aluminum heads on cars when bolts were over tightened.

I think that's what it is. I didn't post a picture as I couldn't get a good one. Will be at JC next Tuesday - hopefully they'll replace it. It's usable, but not ideal. I had to lower the threaded rod an inch so I could get at least 2 turns on the clamp.

Quick question for anyone with a 2016 or 2017 Classic with the front lounge furniture. Are the seats comfortable? I have three breaks in my back and two herniated discs we have the factory lounge chairs in our 30' FC but are considering a Classic and would like some input on comfort of the lounges.

Thanks

Bud

I find them comfortable especially with my feet up. Of course we are all different shapes so it is hard to say if you would feel the same.

I think they are comfortable, but I liked the two Villa Euro Recliners that I'd installed in my '12 28' Intl CCD much better. I am in the early stages of contemplating the removal of the enormous sofa and replacing it with two recliners. Comfort is one reason, space is another. The sofa uses an amazing amount of space and I found the recliners not only used less space, but freed up a lot of not well-utilized space occupied by the frame and arms of the Villa sofa. Just my thoughts.

We find ours very comfortable with feet up or down or sitting sideways.
