Leveling

Block or chock the wheels to keep the trailer from rolling. Level from front to rear by disconnecting the hitch from the tow vehicle, putting the jack pad under the hitch jack, and adjusting the jack up or down until the trailer is level. Use stabilizing jacks at all four corners, as shown in the diagram, to eliminate the natural spring action of the axles.Airstream Travel Trailer International 2023 Leveling User Manual 01

WARNING
Stabilizing jacks should only be used to stabilize trailer. Do not use jacks to lift the trailer.

WARNING
Whenever the trailer must be lifted with a jack, as when changing a tire, always place the lifting jack under the main frame rail. A label is provided to indicate the proper position for the jack. Never use stabilizing jacks to lift the trailer. Refer to Section 8 – Maintenance for further information on jacking.

Effects Of Prolonged Occupancy

Your trailer was designed primarily for recreational use and short-term occupancy. If you expect to occupy the trailer for an extended period, be prepared to deal with condensation and the humid conditions that may be encountered. Moisture can condense on the inside surfaces of the trailer during cold weather when the relative humidity of the interior air is high. This condition is increased because the insulated walls of a recreation vehicle are much thinner than house walls. Also, the relatively small volume and tight, compact construction of modern recreational vehicles mean the normal living activities of even a few occupants will lead to rapid moisture saturation. Estimates indicate a family of four can vaporize up to three gallons of water daily through breathing, cooking, bathing, and washing. Unless the water vapor is carried outside by ventilation or condensed by a dehumidifier, it will condense on the inside of the windows and walls as moisture, or in cold weather, as frost or ice. It may also condense out of sight, within the walls or the ceiling, where it will manifest itself as warped or stained panels.
The appearance of these conditions may indicate a serious problem. When you recognize the signs of excessive moisture and condensation in the trailer, action should be taken to minimize their effects.

Tips To Control Condensation

Allow excess moisture to escape to the outside when:

  • Bathing, washing dishes, hair drying, etc.
  • Laundering, using appliances and using non-vented gas burners.
  • Cooking (Always use the stove vent hood).

Avoid dead air spaces by:

  • Using a fan to keep air circulating.
  • Leaving closet and cabinet doors partially open.

To help alleviate cold weather condensation:

  • Keep the temperature as reasonably cool during cold weather as possible.
  • Allow your trailer to breathe; do not make it airtight.
  • Allow some warm air to be removed and some cool outside air in.
  • Do not allow the furnace to recycle humid interior air; provide reasonable ventilation.

In hot weather, starting the air conditioner early will help remove excess humidity from the air while lowering temperatures.

NOTE
Your trailer is not designed, nor intended, for permanent housing. Use of this product for long-term or permanent occupancy may lead
to premature deterioration of the structure, interior finishes, fabrics, carpeting, and drapes. Damage or deterioration due to long-term occupancy may not be considered normal, and may, under the terms of the warranty, constitute misuse, abuse, or neglect, and may therefore reduce the warranty protection.

Molds

Molds are microscopic organisms that naturally occur in virtually every environment, indoors and out. Outdoors, and mold growth is important in the decomposition of plants. Indoors, mold growth is unfavorable. Left unchecked, molds break down natural materials such as wood products and fabrics. Protect your investment by understanding the potential risks mold imposes.

Contributing Factors To Mold Growth
For mold growth to occur, temperatures, indoors or outdoors, must be between 40° and 100°F, and must also have a source of moisture, such as humidity, standing water, damp materials, etc. Indoors, the most rapid growth occurs with warm and humid conditions.

Inhibiting Mold Growth
By controlling relative humidity, the growth of mold and mildew can be inhibited. In warm climates, the use of the air conditioner will reduce the relative humidity. Vents are located in the bathing and cooking areas. Constant use of these vents is advised during food preparation and bathing, even during colder weather. Additionally, opening a window during these activities will assist in ventilation. In extremely humid conditions, the use of a dehumidifier can be helpful.
Frequent use of your trailer or cleaning regularly is important preventive measure. Additionally, any spills should be wiped up quickly and dried as soon as possible. Avoid leaving damp items lying about. On safe surfaces, use mold-or mildew-killing cleaning products. Check sealants regularly, and reseal when necessary to avoid water leaks. Proper preventive maintenance to the trailer and its accessories, as described both in this manual and in the accompanying literature, will provide the best protection to the trailer. For more information concerning controlling moisture in the trailer, read Tips to Control Condensation in this section.

NOTE
If using a dehumidifier, please read and follow all manufacturer instructions and recommendations for the use and cleaning of the dehumidifier.

Waste Water Systems

The main parts of the wastewater system are the toilet, holding tanks, and tank dump valves (see Section 8 – Maintenance for dump valve information). The system is designed to provide complete self-contained toilet facilities, while on the road or parked, without being connected to a sewage line. It may also be used in the stationary position while connected to a sewage hose. Keep the dump valves closed with either method and empty the tanks when they are nearly full. The idea is to send a large volume of water through the tanks and hose at the same time to float solids away.
After the sewage tank has been emptied, close the dump valves and put approximately five gallons of water in the sewage holding tank using the black tank flush inlet. This will spray the interior of the tank with water and help prevent solids from building up in the sewage holding tank. The addition of a deodorizing agent like Aqua-Kem® will help prevent odors.
Should you ever have a buildup of solids, close the valves, fill the tanks about 3/4 full with fresh water, drive a distance to agitate the solids, and drain the tanks.

Things Not To Put Into Toilet Or Drains

  • Facial tissues and feminine hygiene products (they do not dissolve like toilet paper).
  • Automotive antifreeze, ammonia, alcohols, or acetone.
  • Table scraps or other solids may clog the drains.
