Just Bought a New 20' Flying Cloud & Beraldi Fan & Light Don't Work!

Hi All,

We picked up our new Flying Cloud last Friday and by the time we got it home we found that the fan & light above the stove doesn't work. It worked at the dealership.

I checked the fuse, but it appears to be fine. I even ran an ohm meter over it, so I know that it is good.

Returning it back to Bay Area Airstream seems to be our only option, but it is quite a trip to get it back there.

Anyone have a troubleshooting tip for me?

Thanks!

FYI: I checked out the fuses below the refrigerator, but all appear to be fine.

Bummer.

A couple thoughts....

You have a multimeter, so check for voltage at the fuse. If good there, pull a bulb, and check there. Also, if you have a 12V test light, test with it from the fuse to ground (in some cases, a damaged wire or bad connection can pass voltage through, but not pass enough current to actually do anything useful).

Check all other 12V items in the trailer to see if they are working (lights, fans, water pump, fridge, water heater, furnace....).

What amperage rating is the fuse? Does your Baraldi have halogen or LED lights?

When I got my 2013, the Baraldi came with a 3.something amp fuse, and halogen lights. Lights and fan together exceeded the fuse rating, so it was common to have the fuse fail during use. I believe AS changed to a 5A fuse.

If the trip home from the dealer was the precipitating cause, guessing an electrical connection jiggled loose. Maybe check all wire nuts, screw terminals, and crimp fittings between the 12 volt distribution center and the unit?

Specifically, you might have to dismount the unit, and drop it down. Thinking a wire nut above jiggled loose . . .



Good luck!

Peter

Not familiar with this but does this fan have an outside vent? If so the vent needs to be open for the fan to work. A shot in the dark. Twelve volt on these or 120?

If none of these suggestions work, I would get the service guy at your dealership on the phone, explain the situation, and have him walk you through some troubleshooting.

We had ours on speed dial the first few months.

Good luck!

Thanks for the link. I don't have this issue, but it is nice to know there is a hidden in-line glass fuse in the range hood.

There is also a hidden one behind the switch that activates our fridge cooling fan in the exterior compartment.

FWIW

If you google "Baraldi Range Hood Wont Worrk" you will also get some links within this forum where the challenge has been discussed.

Good luck! Please let us know how it comes out.

Hello! I had this same issue with mine when I purchased from Los Angeles. I had to take to dealership. It was a wiring issue. Did you get solar? My wire was hacked when they installed the solar at dealership. Just stop at Bay Area AS when you head out on a trip somewhere. this is not a life or death issue and they can fix while you wait. IMHO>

Call service - believe there is a service seminar on Saturday. Good to attend and won't make your trip over quite so much of a negative. Most likely a loose wire, but it's a get your hands dirty type of troubleshooting. It's also an opportunity to learn about the coach.

Welcome to the forum and the world of AS. Hope to see you down the road. Pat

I have the same exact problem in my 2016 20'! Took it back and they said it was a short. Now it has happened again! Both times it happened while using the oven and one burner. Back to dealer today!!!

While y'all are changing fuses, it would be a good idea to consider changing the halogens to LEDs. Several Airstream dealers sell the upgrade kits, which are very easy to change out. You get longer coach battery life, less fuse-blowing, they don't generate nearly as much heat, and theoretically can last 20 years before needing replacement.

Same thing happened to us

We have a Pendleton we brought home last march. Fan and light worked at dealer in walk through, then on the way home camping for the weekend, they no longer worked. Took it to dealer and the switch plug had loosened/came apart. They said all they had to do was plug together again. They didn't know why it happened,but said it should not happen again. Hopefully, your problem is as simple. I am assuming they removed the hood and had access to the switch/plug
