Just got my KM Americana a couple weeks ago. A couple things:

I am having trouble fitting the stem inside the vase. I'm thinking it might have to do with the rubber part at the end of the stem. If I don't get the stem all the way in the vase, it still creates a seal that's tight enough to prevent any smoke to come out, but it is also unstable.

That brings me to my next question... My vase seems to wobble on a flat surface. Anyone experience this with theirs? If so, how did you resolve this issue?

Other than that, I'm loving this hookah. It's a must-buy fo sho!

Try wetting the gasket before fitting it. If that doesn't work, you can sand it down but it's not something I recommend doing unless you have to. I would personally rather find a better fitting gasket.

Most vases wobble. Try using a vase protector if you can find one that fits yours. If you got the Jumbo vase, a small vase protector would fit better than the large.

None of the large protectors I have fit the Jumbo anywhere close to "pretty damn good" and I have around 10 of them, including the ones that are included with KM vases. Larges are sized for size 30 bell vases with bottom flanges that are 6" in diameter. The Jumbo has a bottom flange that is 5.25" in diameter. This is slightly larger than the intended use of a small protector but since they do stretch and the Jumbo's flange is shallower than small bells, they can fit on there. IMO it's better to have a protector that is tightly on there vs one that can easily be pulled off.

That makes me curious as to what size yours is now. Large protectors are ~6.5" in diameter when flat and not stretched. If that works for you, then that's good. They don't work for me though.

Beautiful and that base is awesome. It's Identical to my 32" tri metal except more fancy and with a nicer base. I have to get that base. I have a KM Rainbow and it is my favorite KM hose especially the older ones that John is selling them with because they have no end handles. The 2010 KM Rainbow looks more like the Narbish. But it's not washable but if that doesn't matter you would not be going wrong getting it with a Rainbow if it saves you money and you want to save money.

i would advise that you wet the grommet first before putting it into the base, then it will pop all the way in. did you do that already? i want to make sure out works out for you.
This did the trick! Thanks *************!

I used water at first, but glycerine or something like vegetable oil will make it slide in with no effort if you get tired of squeezing it in there.
