Insist that repair department does a pressure test to detect ALL leaks... air pumped inside via fan vent while soapy water is sprayed over the body and seam by seam, rivet by rivet is checked. Plumbing pressure test too.
Update on this Paula. We have spoken at length to Randy at AS who is trying to help us. JC could do the repairs Jan 30th but they are claiming that the local AS dealer (I live in Austin) can do the repair as well which would save me a lot of $ in the transport to/ from since itís a 2 week repair and I have to be at home.
When I mentioned the pressure tests the local dealer says that they will only do the rivet by rivet test if Airstream is willing to pay for that test. So waiting to hear back. Do you have any idea what a test like that costs ? The soapy water test ?
My argument to AS is itís Cheaper insurance for them than paying to have another leak fixed.
The older I get , the better I was.
