- Purchased my 2018 Airstream Basecamp brand new.
- No heat or hot water -required a complete replacement of the Truma Combi Eco Plus unit.
- Solar control panel stopped working – completely replaced
- Solar panels were no longer charging the batteries – found to be a loose connection from when the panel was replaced.
- Piece of exterior black trim was coming loose – applied additional 3M tape
- Sharp metal barb on bathroom door – was removed and sanded down
- Minor front window leak – gaps in the sealant were resealed
- Minor rear door leak – bulb seal was pinched, so it was flattened out and resealed.
- Missing rivet above passenger side window – replaced
- Passenger window screen coming loose – resealed and glued
- Missing screw in rear taillight – replaced
- Water pump continued to run when the water was off – replaced water pump
- Dealer also found a crack in the city water hookup and the shower valve, so both were replaced.
- Error code 45 on the Truma and it would not run. Turned out it had become unplugged in the bench. Plugged it back in and all worked fine.
- Found that when the new Truma was installed, one of the vent covers was not installed. Therefore, a large char mark was created on the floor inside the bench when the Truma was turned on. Called Airstream Factory and they sent over a new vent cover.
- New screen door as the bottom had come loose and ripped
- New glue for shower caddy as it fell off the wall
- Decals were peeling off the stovetop. Instead of gluing them down, Airstream replaced the entire stovetop under warranty.
- A couple of rivets from the top propane cover and come loose. Replaced.
- New bathroom ceiling fan, as prior one had stopped working.
- Welting (black seal) was coming loose on the front window guard and was hanging down. Reinstalled welting.
- Bathroom door was warped, so dealer used clamp and straight edge to straighten.
- Truma vent hose rubbed on the bench lid causing a crack. Replaced hose.
- Bottom net on the rear door completely stretched out. Replaced.
- Small plastic piece on the fridge was loose. Reinstalled
- Bottom shelf in the kitchen cabinet was pulling loose. Caulked opening.
- Aluminum interior panel by passenger side window was loose. Installed L bracket.
- Maintenance: Dealer repacked wheel bearings and inspected/adjusted brakes. Cleaned drums and hubs. Replaced the seals and applied anti seize: $223.76
Maintenance: Repainted the trailer wheel wells, a-frame, step and axle with Rust-Oleum Professional Oil-Based Black Interior/Exterior Industrial Enamel Paint (Semi-Gloss Black): $9.00
Maintenance: Used Mother’s Back-to-Black Plastic Restorer to clean and protect the Basecamp plastics (propane tank cover and lower trim): $6.48
- Maintenance: Cleaned the fresh water tank and lines with Camco TastePURE Spring Fresh Water System Cleaner system: $22.08
End of warranty. Ah!
- Truma showed error code 44 on propane & 5 on electric. Replaced the Truma circuit board and fan. Under Truma warranty.
- Leak underneath the front fridge. Ended up that water was coming through the 3-way Dometic fridge vents on the front of the Basecamp. Had the front air vents re-sealed and they confirmed no floor damage. Since they had looked at the floor under a prior warranty claim, this fell under the prior service and was covered.
Dealer I purchased from: Colonial Airstream in Lakewood, NJ
