2022 27GT sewer light observation

Iíve noticed from time to time that my outside light to help drain the tanks is on. To turn it on you press the light housing. Same to turn it off.

What I noticed the other day is it came on after running the water pump. The vibrations from the pump seem to be enough to turn it on. To be fair, the pump was noisy and must have had some air in it (a whole other issue Iíve noticed happens often).

Iíve tried to screw the light housing in and out to see if I can make it less sensitive but nothing helps yet. Anyone else notice this and have a solution?

I have also noticed the same issue although not sure if it is the water pump, I'll have to try that out. I was thinking of just pulling it all out and replacing with a separate physical switch and light.

Join the club. I have the same issue. The light will turn on for no particular reason. Not sure there is much to do about it short of replacing it altogether.

Have you solved the mystery of the automatic sewer light? Time will tell.

Same problem here with our 2022 30FC. Searching the forums and elsewhere online tells me this is an issue that Airstream needs to be looking into. There are lots of us with this mysterious light problem! I've reached out to customer service about it to see if they have or are working on a solution. -Ari

I have the same problem too. I thought it was just me bumping it, but it has happened too many times for it to be a coincidence. I'll be watching this thread with interest to see if Airstream comes back with a solution.

Seems like this is a common problem. I have the same issue with our 2022 GT 30.

Me too. 2022 Flying Cloud 30. It's annoying, but less so than some other defects I've found.

Light Switch

This switch has not been a problem on our FC however while at Jackson this July i overheard a heated discussion with a owner claiming the same light on problem and the tech saying I can’t replicate the problem. They swapped out a new switch.

Easy to test just remove the switch and test the switch with an ohm meter hot temp and cold. Then hold the switch stationary and then while wiggling it. This might be a poor made internal switch connection.

I contacted Airstream customer service about our light and they offered to send us a replacement. When it comes in, I'll swap it out and see if that makes any difference. I'm wondering if it's a poor design or poor quality.

Please let us know if swapping the light has corrected the problem.
