Fix common problems in seconds or minutes and prevent an interruption to your trip
These 14 “little things” are cheap insurance against things that can happen on the road
We've amped up our original Maintenance Essentials Kit with items that help you maintain electrical connections, and also included Allen wrenches and cabinet latches–all in a custom-designed kit bag with extra room for your own small items
Why this kit is so popular
The items in this kit will help you complete DIY fixes such as:
- Restore electrical connections so power flows properly to brake and trailer lights
- Fix seals and squeaks throughout the Airstream
- Stop leaks at threaded water and gas fittings
- Replace a 12-volt fuse
- Fix drawers that won’t close all the way
- Fixed stripped screws
- Replace a bathroom door handle that’s fallen off
- And more!
Plus, the kit include a guide that explains where in your Airstream you can use each item for maintenance and small repairs, and how to use it.
For the ultimate in preparedness, you can also bundle this with a copy of Rich Luhr's popular book, "The (Nearly) Complete Guide to Airstream Maintenance", for just $19.95. You'll save $10 off the regular book price!
