Thanks Choo Choo Man. They were right where you said. I had looked at all of the obvious places but that would have been too easy to put them where you would think to look.

Could you explain the hot and cold water low point drains - i winterized already by pumping antifreeze in the system - is this a step I should've done?

thanks

This is a step you should have done in winterizing. What you should do is, open the low point drains (located in the skinny cabinet under the fridge) and then turn on your water pump and keep pumping until red antifreeze starts running out of the low point drains. Then run back inside and switch off the pump and close the low point drains. This works better with two people as you can have one person outside watching the water coming out of the low point drains and then yelling to the person in the trailer to close the drains when the antifreeze starts coming out. If you didn't do this step, you still have water in the lines that are leading to the low point drains.

Can someone with an X213 measure the height from the ground to the top of the hitch when the trailer is level? I'm pickup up a used one next week, and I'd like to pre-adjust my ball setup before towing it home. I know I'll need to fine tune it later, just looking for a starting point that will hopefully be close enough to pull her home.

thanks

Mine is stored indoors, but I'm going there tomorrow to rotate the tires on my Traverse. I will check the height while I'm there and snap a picture with my phone.

Thanks Westerncanuck,

Hopefully all will go well picking this thing up. I've never towed anything this heavy with my Tacoma before.

Congrats on your new TT, we love this rig. I found it very easy to and very stable...highly recommend a brake controller and WDH.....huge world of difference. Ride will be nice and level with the truck....took me a little while to dial in the brakes with he brake controller...once I did it...it stopped great!

Hi there... I wanted to thank everyone on this forum. I just purchased a 2012 X213. Signed the papers yesterday. I take delivery in April. I feel that I got a good deal and am looking forward to many nights camping next year.
The feedback from this forum was very helpful in evaluating some of the issues and getting real feedback from owners. Thanks!
Now, waiting out the long winter to get into new camper mode!!!!
Best to all,
Uprighter
