What Is Carbon Monoxide

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a highly poisonous gas that is released when fuels are burned. It is invisible, has no smell, and is therefore very difficult to detect with the human senses. Under normal conditions, in a room where fuel-burning appliances are well maintained and correctly ventilated, the amount of CO released into the room by appliances is not dangerous. These fuels include wood, coal, charcoal, oil, natural gas, gasoline, kerosene, and propane. Common appliances are often sources of CO. If they are not properly maintained, are improperly ventilated, or malfunction, CO levels can rise quickly. CO is a real danger in air-tight trailers with added insulation, sealed windows, and other weatherproofing that can trap CO inside.

Conditions that can result in potentially dangerous CO situations

  1. Excessive spillage or reverse-venting of fuel-burning appliances caused by outdoor conditions, such as:
    • Wind direction and/or velocity, including high gusts of wind.
    • Heavy air in the vent pipes (cold/humid air with extended periods between cycles).
    • Negative pressure differential resulting from use of exhaust fans.
    • Simultaneous operation of several fuel-burning appliances competing for limited internal air.
    • Vent-pipe connections vibrating loose from clothes dryers, furnaces, or water heaters.
    • Obstructions in or unconventional vent-pipe designs which can amplify the above situations.
  2. Extended use of un-vented fuel burning devices.
  3. Temperature increase that can trap exhaust gases near the ground.

Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

  • Mild Exposure – Slight headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue (flu-like symptoms).
  • Medium Exposure – Throbbing headache, drowsiness, confusion, fast heart rate.
  • Extreme Exposure – Convulsions, unconsciousness, heart and lung failure. Exposure to CO can cause brain damage and/or death.

Many causes of reported CARBON MONOXIDE POISONING indicate that while victims are aware that they are not well, they become so disoriented that they are unable to save themselves by either exiting the area or calling for assistance. Also, young children and pets may be the first to be affected.

Test units used in RVs after the vehicle has been in storage, before each trip, and once a week while in use. Failure to test units used in RVs as described may remove your protection.

Fire ExtinguisherAirstream Travel Trailer International 2023 What Is Carbon Monoxide User Manual 01

The fire extinguisher should be checked for charge on a regular basis. Make sure your family knows how to release the extinguisher storage bracket and how to properly operate the extinguisher. Check with your local fire department for professional advice on its operation and use if you find the directions on the extinguisher unclear. They will be able and willing to assist you and your family.

As always, safety should be a top priority. Ensure you and everyone traveling with you can operate the main door and emergency exit window rapidly, without light. Contemplate other means of escape in case the designated exits are blocked.
The escape windows(s) are identified by their red release handles. Lift up on both latches to release the escape window. Push on the glass and it will swing clear.

The window operation should be checked before each trip and the latches lubricated with silicon spray or an equivalent lubricant every 3 months.

Read the directions on the fire extinguisher carefully. If you have any doubts as to its operation, you and your family should practice, and then replace or recharge the extinguisher. Your local fire department will be able to assist you and answer any questions.


General Information

Limited Warranty Policy

This Limited Warranty Covers

  1. The first retail owner and any subsequent owners
  2. ONLY those portions of a NEW travel trailer not excluded under the section “What is Not Covered”, when sold by an authorized dealership and used
    for its intended purpose of recreational travel and camping; and, (iii) ONLY defects in workmanship performed and/or materials used to assemble those portions of your travel trailer not excluded under the section “What is Not Covered”. “Defect” means the failure of the workmanship performed and/or materials used to conform with the design and manufacturing specifications and tolerances of Airstream. The Limited Warranty is transferable and the subsequent owner’s warranty coverage period shall be the unexpired balance of the original warranty coverage period. A completed copy of the Warranty Transfer Form must be submitted to Airstream at the time of resale.

When you request and accept the performance of warranty repairs under the terms of this Limited Warranty, you are accepting all terms of this Limited Warranty, including by way of example, warranty limitations and disclaimers, the forum selection clause and the clause reducing the time period when suit must be filed for breach. If any term of condition in this limited warranty conflicts with your state’s Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”) as interpreted by courts within your state, the provisions of your state’s UCC are varied as allowed for by USS 1-302.

Coverage Ends
Months after the first retail owner first takes delivery of the travel trailer from an authorized dealership. Any action for breach of this warranty or any implied warranties must be commenced not more than 37 months after the breach. Some states do not allow the reduction of the time when a breach of warranty claim must be commenced, so the reduction in time when a breach of a warranty claim must be commenced may not apply to you.

Limitation Of Implied Warranties
Implied warranties arising under applicable law, if any, including but not limited to implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, are hereby limited in duration to the term of this limited warranty and are limited in scope of coverage to those portions of the travel trailer covered by this limited warranty. There are no express warranties or any implied warranties of merchantability on those portions of the travel trailer excluded from coverage. There is no warranty of any nature made by Airstream beyond that contained in this limited warranty. No person has authority to enlarge, amend or modify this limited warranty. The dealer is not airstream’s agent. Airstream is not responsible for any undertaking, representation or warranty made by any dealer or others beyond those expressly set forth within this limited warranty. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations may not apply to you.

Disclaimer Of Incidental And Consequential Damages
Airstream disclaims any and all incidental and consequential damages, including but not limited to expenses such as transportation to and from dealerships and Airstream repair facilities, loss of time, loss of pay, loss of use, inconvenience, commercial loss (including but not limited to lost profits), towing charges, bus fares, vehicle rental, service call charges, gasoline expenses, incidental charges such as telephone calls and facsimile transmissions, and expenses for lodging and moisture damage such as mold and mildew as well as rust and corrosion. This disclaimer is independent of any failure of the essential purpose of any warranties provided with the travel trailer, and shall survive any determination that a warranty failed of its essential purpose. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Repair Remedy
Airstream’s sole and exclusive obligation is to repair any covered defects discovered within the warranty coverage period if:

  1. Within 10 days of your discovery of a defect you notify Airstream OR an authorized dealership of the defect; AND
  2. You deliver your travel trailer to Airstream OR an authorized dealership at your cost and expense.

Back-Up Remedy
If the primary repair remedy fails to successfully cure any defect after a reasonable number of repair attempts, your sole and exclusive remedy shall be to have Airstream pay an independent service shop of your choice to perform repairs to the defect OR if the defect is incurable, have Airstream pay diminution in value damages. The repair remedy and the backup remedy must both be exhausted and these remedies must fail to fulfill their essential purpose before you can seek other legal or equitable remedies for breach of this express warranty or for breach of any implied warranty. This limited warranty is not a warranty that promises or extends to future performance because the warranty does not make a representation of how your travel trailer will perform in the future but instead represents only what the remedy will be if a defect exists.

Unless prohibited by state law, repairs will not extend the time when you must commence a breach of warranty claim and shall not extend the warranty coverage period. Any performance of repairs after the warranty coverage ends OR any performance of repairs to those portions of your travel trailer excluded from coverage shall be considered “goodwill” repairs. Warranty repairs should be expected. Airstream may use new and/or remanufactured parts and/or components of substantially equal quality to complete a repair. Damage to the interior or exterior surfaces, trim, upholstery, and other appearance items may occur at the factory during assembly, during delivery of the travel trailer to your selling dealer or on the selling dealer’s lot. Normally, any damage is detected and corrected at the factory or by the selling dealer during the inspection process. If you discover any damage when you take delivery of your travel trailer, you MUST notify your dealer OR Airstream within 10 days of the date of purchase to have the damage repaired at no cost to you. Minor adjustments, such as adjustments to the interior or exterior doors, drawers, and latches will be performed at no cost to you by your selling dealer during the first 90 days of warranty coverage; thereafter, such adjustments are your exclusive responsibility as normal maintenance.
