All appliances are delivered to Airstream Inc. with in-depth owner’s manuals. Those manuals are included in the delivery case supplied by your dealer. The manuals may contain warnings, cautions, and operating instruction that should be read and followed before operating the appliances.
The information contained in the appliances manuals supersedes any information contained in the Airstream Trailer Owner’s Manual on appliances. If you believe contradictory information on appliances is contained in this manual, or If any appliance manual(s) have not been provided with your trailer, contact your dealer, the respective appliance manufacturer, or Airstream Customer Service at 937-596-6111 or write:

Follow the instructions and warnings noted in the respective appliance and equipment owner’s manuals, as well as those mentioned below.
Annual maintenance should be conducted on propane gas appliances and equipment by an authorized dealer or repair facility.
Insects can build nests in the burners of various appliances and equipment. The burner and burner orifice of the propane gas appliances and equipment should be cleaned out by an authorized dealer or repair facility anytime circumstances or conditions warrant, but no less than on an annual basis.
Most LPG appliances used in recreational vehicles are vented to the outside of the vehicle. When parked close to a gasoline pump, it is possible that gasoline fumes could enter this type of appliance and ignite from the burner flame, CAUSING A FIRE OR EXPLOSION.
For additional Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) safety and warning information, refer to Section 2 – Safety and Section 6 – Exterior of this manual.
The roof air conditioner used on Airstream trailers is one of the most popular on the market today. In your owner’s packet is a set of literature covering all operating and maintenance instructions. If the literature is misplaced, contact the air conditioner manufacturer or your Airstream dealer for replacement.
Proper voltage to the air conditioner is critical. A voltmeter check may find the voltage much lower at a campground shoreline outlet than the needed 110 to 120 volts. Low voltage is usually associated with older or poorly maintained trailer parks. Parking your trailer so the power cord can be plugged into a receptacle close to the fuse or circuit breaker box can alleviate low-voltage problems. Avoid extension cords and adapters whenever possible. If an extension cord must be used, it should be as short and heavy as possible to provide the most current.
If high temperatures are expected, make an effort to park in a shaded area. Starting the air conditioner early in the morning also helps. It is more efficient to hold a comfortable temperature than it is to lower the temperature after the interior of the trailer is already hot.
Never run your air conditioner with the vents closed. Doing so could cause the air conditioner to freeze and may damage to the unit. The manufacturer recommends having at least 3 vents open when running to prevent any chance of freezing up
Review the air conditioning literature supplied in your owner’s packet before proceeding.
There is little difference between the operation of home gas ranges and the trailer’s cooktop. If, however, you are used to an electric range, operating confidence can be quickly gained by reading the manufacturer’s directions provided in the owner’s packet. Manufacturer’s service and parts manuals are also available.
An operation manual for the cooktop has been provided with your owner’s packet. If this has not been provided with your trailer, contact the listed manufacturer to obtain it. Their manual contains specialized warnings and cautions that should be reviewed prior to operating the appliance.
Ceiling Vent Fan
The high-volume roof vent system is designed to quickly exhaust stale, hot air and draw in fresh air. It is great to use when the outside temperature does not call for air conditioning, but the heat has built up in your trailer.
The core of the system is a powerful rotary fan that works with a slightly open window to create a balanced airflow. It is designed for maximum air exchange, minimum sound levels and power consumption. Fresh, clean, natural air is pulled in. Hot, stale, stuffy air is pushed out.
Never cover the ceiling fans. This will greatly restrict airflow and increase sound levels.
- Open dome approximately 3 in. or more (ceiling fan has a built-in safety switch that will not allow motor to operate unless dome is partially open).
- Turn 3-speed knob to desired performance level
(3-Low, 2-Medium, 1-High, O-Off).
- Open window(s) or door for airflow.
The source of airflow is determined by the number of window(s) or door opened. For best results, close all roof vents and open one window that is the greatest distance from the ceiling fan.
- Turn fan motor off.
- Remove the screws around perimeter of screen insert only.
- Clean screen with soap and water solution, dab dry with a soft cloth, and reinstall.

The bath exhaust vent (shown above) removes moisture from the air when using the shower. To operate, you first need to open the vent.
To open the vent, push the button on the handle to disengage the clip and slide the handle upward until the clip engages. Once open, turn the fan on by pressing the ON/OFF button. Turn the fan off before closing the vent.
To close the vent, push the button on the handle to disengage the clip and pull the handle down until the clip engages in the lowered position.
Turn off the fan before closing the vent. Damage to the motor can occur if the fan runs with the vent closed.
To clean the screen, make sure the fan is off. Remove the four (4) screws. Clean with mild soap and water only.
Do not operate the fan with the screen removed as this could result in damage or injury.
To change the 5 Amp fuse:
- Make sure the fan is off.
- Remove the cap by turning it to the left to gain access.
- Replace with a type GMA 5A fast-acting fuse.
- Replace the cap to secure the fuse in the holder.
The manufacturer of the furnace in your trailer has been well-known in the RV industry for many years. The furnace burns LP gas and is powered by a 12-volt current from the batteries or power converter when plugged into city power. Operating instructions are located in your owner’s packet. If they should become misplaced, new literature can be ordered direct from the manufacturer or your Airstream dealer. The manufacturer also offers a detailed service guide for your furnace.
Carefully read all the manufacturer’s instructions prior to operating. NEVER store flammable material next to the furnace or in close proximity to the furnace exhaust outlet on the side if the trailer.
If warranty service is required, use only a service location recommended by the furnace manufacturer or your Airstream dealer.
Follow the instructions provided in your Owner’s Packet for the operation of the thermostat.
Refer to the Certified Performance Checkout sheet, included in your owner’s packet, for a manufacturer, model, and serial number information.
