Touring Coach Exterior Features

Windows

Clean your touring coach windows the same way you clean the windows in your home. Clean the seals with a damp cloth and mild detergent every 3 to 6 months. Do not use strong solvents, as they will damage the seals. A coat of natural silicone lubricant applied after the seal has dried will keep it flexible. Spread the lubricant evenly with a brush or finger, working it into the surface. This is good practice for all rubber seals in your touring coach.

WARNING
Failure to properly clean and lubricate the window seals could result in the window sticking to the jamb and should only be released by a qualified technician trained in the procedure. Do not force, pry, or apply great pressure to open the window. Failure to heed this warning may cause the window to shatter and/or cause personal injury. For replacement of a damaged window, contact an Airstream Service Center.

Gravity Water Fill

The gravity water fill is located on the backside of the galley cabinet. It is used to fill the fresh water tank with potable water. A small vent is located next to the port to allow air to be expelled from the tank as it is filled.

Fill the water tank by opening the sliding door. A high-pressure RV/Marine FDA-approved drinking water hose of at least ½-in. diameter made from material that is tasteless, odorless, and non-toxic can now be inserted. It’s a good idea to let the water run through a hose for a short time to flush it out. RVers sometimes fill their tanks with “home” water to avoid strange water that may be distasteful to them on short outings. Remember, the more water you carry in the Fresh Water tank, the less cargo-carrying capacity you have for other items. The amount of water in the tank may be checked on the Multiplex Control Panel.

Gravity Water Fill Instructions

NOTE
Since the freshwater tank fill is essentially in the interior of the unit. Please monitor the amount of water you are putting into the tank to ensure that you do not have overflow into the coach.

City Water HookupAirstream Touring Coach Interstate 19 2023 Curbside Exterior Components User Manual 04

The city water hookup is located on the roadside of the touring coach. For consistent water flow and plumbing line safety, an in-line regulator limits pressure to 50 psi. Use a tasteless, odorless, non-toxic, high-pressure hose of at least 1/2 in. diameter designed for touring coach use. The city water inlet is a standard garden hose thread. We suggest you carry two lengths of hose to reach hookups farther away than normal, as well as to have a spare.

City Water Hookup Guide

After hooking up the hose and turning on the city water valve provided in the park, slowly open a faucet. There will be a lot of spurts and sputtering until all the air is expelled from the touring coach system. It may take some time before all the air is expelled and a steady flow of water occurs. Once a steady flow is achieved at one faucet, the others should be opened long enough to expel the air in the lines going to them.

Exterior ShowerAirstream Touring Coach Interstate 19 2023 Curbside Exterior Components User Manual 05

Exterior Shower Usage

All units are equipped with an exterior shower. This shower consists of a shower hose, shower head, and water valves inside a lockable exterior door. Water is supplied by the pump or city water hookup. To use: insert the hose into the inlet, and pull it back slightly to verify it is securely connected. Press the spout button and rotate the faucet handles to the desired temperature. To remove the hose assembly, hold back the water inlet fitting while simultaneously pulling out the hose fitting. Be sure to press the spout button to relieve any residual pressure before removing the hose.

Exterior Sliding Step

The curbside sliding door has a sliding step with auto retract, a step-out warning buzzer, and a lock extended switch located just inside the sliding door. Please read, understand, and instruct passengers on the following operational and safety information about the step. The step extends and retracts as the sliding door is opened and closed with the engine off and the step lock extend switch off. The step retracts automatically and will not extend when the engine is started to prevent damage while in transit. If the step does not retract fully, a warning buzzer will sound. The vehicle should not be driven if the step fails to retract completely. This buzzer is controlled by a 10-amp fuse. An undercarriage light, extending from wheel to wheel, has been added for your convenience. This step light can be turned on/off or dimmed using one of the multiplex panels, on the lighting menu, labeled “under coach/carriage.”

Lock Extended Switch

To use the lock extended switch, turn the engine off, open the door to extend the step, and turn the switch on. The step will now remain extended while opening and closing the door. Turn the switch off to return the step to normal operating mode.
If you forget to turn the lock extended switch off before starting the engine, the step will retract when the engine is started; however, it will not extend when the engine is turned off and the door is opened. To reset the step, turn the engine off and the step lock extended switch off with the door closed.

Lock Extended Switch Function

WARNING
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP. The step will not extend with the opening of the sliding door when the engine is running. Check that the step is extended before leaving and entering the vehicle. Failure to follow this warning could result in personal injury.
