I can't speak for a 2022 model but my 2013 Flying Cloud 25 had (2) 5A blade fuses in the battery disconnect relay and tubular glass fuses protecting the tongue jack, Fantastic Fans and Range Hood.

New Fan and IRVWPC

Previously “got” but installed a Marinco 12V fan in the bedroom today. It’s pretty loud but we like ambient noise at night. Our first few trips out we’ve thought the air seemed a little stagnant back in the back at night if we didn’t run the AC fan full time.

Also installed my IRVWPC. Stuck it in the little cabinet under the oven right in front of the water pump. Didn’t get a picture of that one.

One of the Essentials

The perfect addition to our Airstream’s, The AirInn, appliances. Nothing like a perrr…fect latte to start the day. A relatively compact, lightweight and extremely fast espresso maker that truly does make a great cup of coffee!

I don’t do the cooking but I know how to heat stuff up. Just get yourself a rice cooker. It is small, light weight (3.7 Lb) and needs very little power (350 watts). It is great for boondocking. Now I have never cooked rice in it but have heated up lots of food from soup to any leftovers. It is also very inexpensive- $20. If you want to save another 30% get a used one, probably just the box is slightly damaged.

It will vary depending on the many options you select. Base price is around $19k for a Grand Lounge plus extra if you spec various finishes or table tops. That includes the lounge, new dual dinettes, upgraded cushions and materials, lower cabinets, and the side desk/cabinet next to the fridge. That’s a lot for sure but they have the trailer for about six weeks. Thinking hard on having them also redo the hanging closets with matching drawers. Things that add more cost to a bid are countertop finishes or appliance add ons. They are booked out for quite a while.

I’m lucky to have gotten my 27FB International before the significant cost increases during Covid. This upgrade will make the trailer more functional for ann overall investment still less than a current AS and avoid any need to upgrade to a new trailer.

Thank you very much for the information, we also purchased before the massive price increases and this improvement would be of great value for the improvement in the floor plan.

Cheers!

6 stage reverse osmosis water system

from iSping / 123filters.com

i had to move parts around so that it would fit under the sink
no loss in storage as all elements are under the sink and near the rear

the pressurized water storage tank goes in next. the OEM told me that it can be used in any position Vert or Horizontal

We picked up two of these battery operated lights for the bedside table. All you do is tap the top and the light comes on. They’ve got three light settings (daylight, cool, and warm) and are dimmable.) We’re trying to conserve as much lithium power as possible as we like to boondock.
