Airstream Travel Trailer Bambi 2023 Interior Aluminum Skin User Manual

Interior Aluminum Skin

Interior aluminum skin can be cleaned by washing skin with any mild non-abrasive soap or detergent. Cleaning should be followed by a thorough clean water rinse. Drying the unit with a chamois or a soft cloth may prevent spots and streaks. Do not use abrasive cleaners or utensils on the aluminum skin as it is coated with a clear coat that could be damaged.

NOTE
When washing or polishing your trailer, always wipe with the grain of the metal.

Interior Woodwork
The finish on the interior woodwork is a high quality furniture finish and should be treated as any fine furniture finish. Use a high quality furniture cleaner which does NOT contain ammonia or bleach. One good choice is Murphy Oil Soap Clean and Shine.

Counter Area
The counter tops are made of a high-pressure laminate and can be cleaned with soap and water, or you can use a common solvent on tough spots. Do not use abrasive cleaners since they could scratch the surface. A protective pad should always be used under hot utensils or pans.

Sinks
Rinse and wipe sinks clean with a soft cloth after each use. Clean sinks thoroughly at least once a week with a mild soap. For the galley sink, use either mild soap or a non-abrasive stainless-friendly cleaner and a non-abrasive sponge or rag; rinse thoroughly to remove all cleaning residue. Always clean with the grain.

NOTE
The stainless-steel galley sink has a protective layer. To prevent damage, please refer to your Owner’s packet and read the manufacturer’s detailed cleaning instructions. Do not use bleach. Do not use abrasives like steel wool or scouring pads as they will damage your sink. Do not leave steel or cast-iron cookware in the sink.

Vinyl Flooring

Use a soft broom to sweep the floor. A vacuum cleaner may damage the flooring, especially the type that use beater bars. In most cases, a clean damp cloth or mop will suffice to clean dirty flooring. When necessary, a solution of mild detergent or domestic floor cleaning emulsion can be used to clean the flooring. Do not use a wire brush or nylon scouring pads, furniture polish, spirit-based polish, powder or liquid abrasive cleaners, bleach or other strong detergents. Scuffs, dirt, and spillages should be cleaned up as soon as possible. Rubber backing on doormats may result in yellow discoloration of the floor immediately beneath. Choose a natural fiber mat. Mats provided by Airstream are intended for use outside of your Airstream. Rubber feet on furniture may cause staining. Remove them altogether or place coasters or felt pads between them and the floor.

Polishing the Flooring

Vinyl floors do not require waxing or polishing. However, applying polish will provide additional protection for the floor. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using a floor polish or cleaner and ensure it is suitable for use with cushioned vinyl flooring.

Shower Stall

To clean your fiberglass shower stall unit, use warm water and one of the stronger liquid detergents. Do not use abrasive cleaners as they may scratch and dull the surface of your unit. Stubborn stains can be removed with solvents such as turpentine, paint thinner, or acetone. Restore dulled areas by rubbing with an automotive-type liquid cleaner, then, put the soft glow back into your unit with a light application of liquid wax.

CAUTION
Applying wax to the base of the shower floor is not recommended, as this could create an unsafe surface.

Shower Head
The shower head is designed to give maximum flexibility in usage and provides for water-saving techniques when using your trailer on self-containment. It can be held in the hand and moved about the body. Normally, the best water conservation procedure is to wet the entire body and then turn the water off. Apply soap, lather thoroughly, and then rinse the soap off.

Retractable Clothesline
A retractable clothesline is installed for your convenience in the shower stall. To use, pull the line from the base and attach it to the holder on the opposite wall. Turning the nut on the base will tighten the line.

Dinette and Bed Conversion

To convert models with a wall-mounted dinette table, lift upward on the front of the table and find the black latch on the front of the table leg. Push the latch downward. The latch will release the table leg and allow you to fold it up and lock it into place on the underside of the tabletop. With the leg locked into place, lift the back of the table off the wall brackets. Once unhooked, the tabletop can swing on its hinge, allowing you to lower the tabletop onto the supports of the dinette seats. Place the backrest cushions over the tabletop to complete the conversion. We recommend that you travel with the table in the lowered position.
For models with a telescoping pedestal leg, release the black compression clamp levers on the pedestal leg and push the table down. Once lowered, clamp the levers back into place to lock the leg into the lowered position. Place the backrest cushions over the tabletop to complete the conversion.

Ceiling and Directional Lighting

All lighting in the Airstream trailer is LED and most will require a replacement fixture should it go out. The main ceiling lights can be turned on/off by the switch at the entry door. Some light fixtures may have a push button switch located on the fixture. The bed and lounge areas have individually switched directional lighting.

Storage Tips
Galley cabinets should have the heaviest items stored on the bottom and lighter items overhead. After loading, put skillets and canned goods on the floor or bottom shelf, and cereals and crackers in the overhead roof locker. Use unbreakable-type plates and saucers, and consider storing your dish towels around them.
Clothes hung in wardrobes should be kept on hangers that snap over the clothes rods to keep them from bouncing off on rough roads. Try to avoid large bulky coats. Layers of lighter clothing will usually keep you warmer, are more WARNING Keep flammable material away from the furnace. versatile, and are easier to store.

WARNING
Keep flammable material away from the furnace.

Plumbing

Water System (Self-Contained)
Fill the water tank by opening the exterior access door and removing the screw cap. A potable water hose can now be inserted. It is a good idea to let the water run through the hose for a short time to flush it out. Experienced RVers usually fill their tanks with “home” water to avoid strange water that may be distasteful to them. The amount of water in the tank may be checked on the Monitor Panel, or you may fill the tank until the water overflows out of the fill.
Open the hot side of the galley or lavatory faucet and turn on the water pump switch located on the monitor panel. For some time, the open faucet will only sputter. This is because air is being pushed out through the lines. Now, open a cold faucet. It will sputter for a short time, but will soon expel a steady stream. All other faucets can now be opened until all air is expelled. Once the system is filled with water and the faucets closed, the water pump will shut off. When a faucet is opened, the pump will come back on automatically. If the faucet is just barely open, it is normal for the pump to cycle on and off rapidly.
