Airstream Travel Trailer International 2023 Service User Manual
Before leaving the factory, every vital part of the trailer is tested for performance. Each test is signed and certified by an inspector. After the trailer arrives on your dealer’s lot, all vital parts and systems are again tested. When you take delivery of your new trailer, you will receive a complete check out. At that time, a specified list of performance checks on your trailer equipment will be conducted, and any deficiencies you have experienced since taking delivery will be corrected. Please contact your dealer if your trailer needs service. Major service under your Airstream Limited Warranty is available through our nationwide network of Airstream Dealer Service Centers. To find a dealer, please visit, www.Airstream.com to use our dealer locator. Occasionally, dealerships change, or new dealers are added that may not appear on the website immediately. Please note that all centers operate on an appointment basis for the utmost efficiency. When you require service for your trailer from the Airstream Factory Service Center or a Certified Dealer Service Center, please contact the service manager for an appointment, and inform them if you are unable to keep the appointment date or wish to change it. Service may be arranged at the Factory Service Center by contacting the Service Coordinator at:

Jackson Center, Ohio 45334-0629
Phone: (937) 596-6111 or (877) 596-6111
Reporting Safety Defects
If you believe that your vehicle has a defect that could cause a crash or could cause injury or death, you should immediately inform the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in addition to notifying Airstream Inc.
If NHTSA receives similar complaints, it may open an investigation, and if it finds that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between you, your dealer, or Airstream Inc.
To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Vehicle Safety Hotline toll-free at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), go to www.safercar.gov, or write to: Administrator, NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, S.E.,
Washington, DC 20590. You can also obtain other information about motor vehicle safety from www.safercar.gov.

Airstream owners have parked virtually in every place imaginable, from filling stations to farmlands. In time, you’ll develop a knack for spying wonderful little roadside locations by turning off the main highway and exploring. There are many modern parks, including State, County, and Federal parks, with good facilities where you might obtain hookups of electrical, water, and sewer connections. Directories are published which describe in detail these parks and tell what is available in the way of services and hookups. On overnight or weekend trips, chances are you will not use up the capacity of the sewage holding tank, deplete the water supply, or run down the batteries that supply the 12-volt current. On a longer trip, when you have stayed where sewer connections and utility hookups were not available, it will be necessary for you to stop from time to time to dispose of the waste in the holding tank and replenish the water supply. Many truck stops and gas stations, chain and individually owned, have installed sanitary dumping stations for just this purpose. Booklets are available that list these dumping stations. When stopping for the night, your Airstream is built to be safely parked in any spot that is relatively level and where the ground is firm. Your facilities are with you. You are self-contained. Unless the tow vehicle is needed for transportation, it is not necessary to unhitch.
At each campsite, make sure you have not parked in such a manner as to block the operation of the escape window by being too close to trees, fences, or other impediments. Scenic views are one reason for traveling but don’t park so the beautiful lake or steep cliff is just outside your escape window. Choose the most level parking spot possible. Stabilizing jacks or blocks may not be required for an overnight stay. However, if you put the jack pad on the hitch jack and run the hitch jack down to take the weight off the tow vehicle’s springs, it will provide some stability. If you must park on a slope, park facing downhill. It is easier to level the trailer this way. All you need to do to enjoy the self-contained luxury of your Airstream is to turn on the LP and light any appliance pilot lights. Before moving on, check your campsite, both for cleanliness, and to be sure you have not left anything behind. Turn off the gas supply and make sure everything is properly stowed. Use your pre-travel checklist and you are ready for more travel adventures.
Making a long trip in your Airstream is not very different from making a weekend excursion. Since everything you need is right at hand, you are at home wherever you go. When packing for an extended trip, take everything you need, but only what you need. When you plan to stay in the same place for several days, weeks or months, you will want your trailer to be as level and steady as possible. Check the attitude with a small spirit level set on the inside work counter or the trailer hitch A-frame. If a correction is necessary, you must level from side to side first. This can be done easily by backing the trailer up onto one or more 2 x 6 boards. We do not recommend placing tires in a hole for leveling.
