Airstream Travel Trailer Bambi 2023 City Water Hookup User Manual
City Water Hookup
The city water hook-up is located on the side of the trailer. For consistent water flow and plumbing line safety, an in-line regulator limits pressure to 50 PSI.
Use a tasteless, odorless, and non-toxic high-pressure hose of at least 1/2 in. diameter designed for RV use. The city water inlet is a standard garden hose thread. We suggest you carry two lengths of hose in order to reach hookups farther away than normal, plus, to have a spare.
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 trailer system. If the water heater is empty, it will take some time before all the air is expelled and a steady flow of water occurs at the faucet. 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.
Your plumbing system has a built-in pressure regulator to protect your lines and faucets from extremely high pressures on some city water systems.
Bambi units are equipped with an exterior shower. This shower consists of a shower hose, shower head, and water valves inside of a lockable exterior door. Water is supplied by the pump or city water hookup.
Shoreline Power Supply
Your Aistream is equipped with a Smart Plug power inlet located on the road side exterior. Smart Plug inlets offer superior performance and ease of use. A few features of the Smart Plug include:
- Eliminates Overheating – Increased pin & clip surface area greatly improves electrical conductivity during high amperage demand.
- Ease of Use – No twist required, the unique plug body shape and push-in design means it only goes in the right way every time – even in the dark!
- Multi-Point Locking System – Side clips lock the plug securely into the inlet which eliminates any stress on the pins from movement of the power cord.
- Weatherproof Seals – Multi-fin silicone gaskets installed in the inlet cover and interior of the plug body eliminates moisture penetration.
The Smart Plug incorporates a reverse polarity feature which will include a series of light codes to let you know the condition of the power coming from the campsite power pedestal. Please refer to the provided Smart Plug owner’s manual for more information on reverse polarity and the light codes.
Many campgrounds provide less than 30-amp service and your hookup may blow their fuse or circuit breaker. If this happens, reduce the load and replace the fuse or reset the breaker.
120-Volt Outlet and TV/Satellite Inlets
An inlet for TV/Satellite and an outlet for a 120 volt receptacle is located on the curb side exterior and is labeled for your convenience. Your Airstream must be plugged into a shoreline power supply for the outlet to operate. Use the TV/satellite inlet to connect your Airstream to a campground TV cable source or portable TV satellite antenna source for viewing.
Axle and Running Gear Assembly
Each rubber torsion axle is aligned during manufacturing and double-checked on a random basis. Alignment after delivery is the customer’s responsibility.
Hitting chuck holes or rough railroad tracks while traveling straight will only cause misalignment after the tire has struck such objects many times. Of course, a deep enough hole can affect the alignment immediately.
The worse culprit is a curb because they are normally struck at an angle. Rear axles are occasionally damaged when people are attempting to park beside a curb while backing up their trailer. The trailer axle(s) is bent upward in the middle. This bend is normal and is how the camber is obtained. Also, toe-in is built into the axle by very slight bends in the axle tube on each end. Tire wear indicates misalignment. Check with your dealer for the nearest location to have the proper equipment to correct the trailer’s alignment. For Toe-In and Camber Specifications, see Rubber Torsion Axle Alignment Specifications on page 8-8.
The EZ-Latch coupler features a simple-to-use latching mechanism. Hooking up is as easy as dropping the coupler on to your hitch ball. Simply make sure that the coupler is properly lined up with the ball, then lower the coupler. The coupler will automatically open and latch into place when lowered onto the hitch ball. To disengage coupler, pull up on latch and raise the coupler off of hitch ball. Return the coupler latch to the latched position to ensure that coupler is ready to be latched again. The coupler features a strong composite handle, If the handle does get damaged or becomes missing, the coupler is still completely operational until the handle can be replaced. Replacement parts can be purchased through your Airstream Dealer. See additional information included in your owner’s packet.
Always make sure coupler is properly attached and latched before towing.
