Travel Warning Light/Beep

I have a 2020 AI 19 and there is a Travel Warning light switch on the right switch panel just below the steering wheel. All of a sudden it started blinking and beeping when I start to drive. Couldn't find anything in the manual. Any ideas? Thank you.

Your profile info says you have a 2019 Interstate Nineteen? Is it a new 2019 Sprinter? Is it a 4x4? Do you have rear airsuspension by VB?

Does the light and warning disappear after you drive away? It might be a warning related to the airsuspension.

Unfortunately the info to support new systems is often lacking in sufficient detail.

It is a 2020. When I registered, I didn't see an option for that year. It is not a 4x4 and I don't think it has air suspension. I'm new to this stuff so not sure about a lot of things. It just started coming on lately as soon as I put it in reverse or drive. Thank you.

This is an issue you may need the dealer to help with.

How do you know it is a "Travel Warning"?

Does this light switch look like the attached image from Mercedes Owners Manual?

On the drawing you posted, it is one of the slots on the lower left "blue box". It says in red "Travel Warning" and it lights up and blinks. Actually, I finally did get it to turn off. I noticed that on the control screen that an alarm popped up. It said that the awning was out. The awning was not out so I hit the button to close it anyway and nothing different happened. Then, I opened the awning a little and closed it again. The alarm signal went off and so did the "Travel Warning"! Something must have jarred the alarm relay while driving and the Travel Warning light must be connected to certain potential hazards that it wants you to know about before you take off. Hope this helps someone else with similar problem. Thanks for all the feedback.

KIA59K - great info. Sounds like Airstream stepped up their warning for the awning. The awning out buzz alarm has bewildered Interstate owner's for years. Not it appears they have improved it with a warning light.

Is your step in the open position?? It will beep if and red light will flash if you try to drive off with the step extended. Is the switch step lock in the off position, right above the fire extinguisher?

No, the step was closed and the switch was set for it to close as well. I'm pretty sure the warning came because of the awning as mentioned earlier. Thank you!

I have a 2019 Interstate and the retractable step is making a grinding noise, so Airstream suggested I pull the fuse for the step, but now the travel warning light is on and beeping. Is there a fuse for the travel warning?

The grinding noise is likely the top cover of the step dragging on the step as it retracts. If you press down and in (lightly as the step retracts so that you make more clearance to the cover top, it will should be OK. I had a similar situation and added a bit of VHB tape to hold the lid to the chassis.

HI there. Noticed you rpost from a while back and I am having the same problem with the Travel Warning light/buzzer.
Did you find the fuses? If so, where are they and did it help.
Thank you so much.

I just had the identical issues on my 2021 Interstate GT. The solution was to bend the silver clip on the edge of the awning so that it presses against the white button when the awning is closed. This clip is located on the left side of the awning and can be accessed when the awning is extended just a foot or so.

Thank you to all that responded. Finally found the problem was the access door to the generator. The locking mechanism has malfunctioned. A nice rv mechanic was able to silence the buzzer but unable to fix the root problem.
So, I am unable to access the generator at all! I have tried to see an airstream dealer but no one will give me a service appointment. What should I do now?
Thanks again everyone for your inputs!
