No worries and any and all suggestions are welcomed.

I have spent the majority of the day looking into this issue and have yet to find it. I tried to duplicate it with no success. I completely filled the grey tank to the point the tub wasn't draining any longer with no evidence of water anywhere. I ran both hot and cold side of the kitchen sink, no drips anywhere. Checked all the drain pipes while faucets were running and no leaks. Filled both sides of the kitchen sink with water with stoppers in and no drips around base of sink drain. While the grey tank was filling and completely full I would rock the camper trying to possibly duplicate a slosh effect, no drips or water evidence to be seen even out of the stubbed up vent pipe under the sink. I have crawled under the sink area as far as I could and also under the stove area since the plumbing lines (water) pass thru that area, no leaks. I even crawled under the travel trailer to see if any evidence could be seen under neath and no water. I just don't get it.

So it must be a classic case of take the car to the mechanic and it behaves. So I guess I am at a stand still till I go on my next trip in September. If it happens there then I'm going to repeat the steps above while there to locate/isolate and repair (hopefully).

Quick question though, what exactly is the stubbed up vent pipe there for? Is it necessary? I have had several makes and models as well as years of travel trailers and have never seen this in place, only the vent out of the roof for both black and grey tanks. If it isn't exactly necessary and if the problem reoccurs then I may look into getting a threaded pipe cap to seal it off, if it is the issue.

Thanks again,
Scott

I had a water leak under my sink too, and it was the supply lines going to my kitchen faucet. I noticed a small puddle in from of my door when I walked in. Opened the cupboard to find the linoleum wet under the sink. I thought it was the sewer pipe. Took a couple of looks over a few weeks to finally find the the PEX fitting that was leaking. Gave it a few turns, leak was gone.

Thanks, I'll just go back under there and give each connection on the supply side a turn or two just to see if any connector was loose. Hopefully that will solve it.

Thanks again,

Add me to the X213 owners list (and the first time trailer owners list)!


My wife got sick of of seeing her BMW Z3 collecting dust in the garage since having our first kid almost two years ago now, so she decided trade it in (it was a 3rd car for us that we referred to as our "date night car"). In her mind, a 2-seater for a three person family doesn't make sense... but a camper for 6-8 people did. And well, I'm not going to argue with that logic!

After about six months of literally looking at every floorplan made by every trailer company in North America going back a few years, we decided on the X213. Layout, weight, storage, etc. made it perfect for us. We Picked up our 2015 two weekends ago and have done two overnighters in the driveway. First was dry with just battery power, and second was after de-winterizing and with fresh water in the tank and some power run from the house. I find it's easy to understand how everything works (thank you Youtube!), and I've seen no issues with it yet. It's a little intimidating towing for the first time, but I hear that just gets easier with practice. So for now, trips will be within an hour away. First trip is in three weeks up to a Good Sam's recommended site up at lake Allatoona with full hookups. Can't wait, and I'll keep posting things I learn and experience.

Adam

Welcome, Adam&Family, to the X213 family. We also have a 2015 and have used it three times...once to Stone Mountain, once to Enota Campground, and once to Cherokee, NC. We love it. We're also from Georgia....Buford. Hope you enjoy your X213!

thanks in advance!
We bought ours new in 2012, we love our trailer. Only issue was that the power jack quit working and the dealer replaced that with a heavy duty one under warranty. Other than that we haven't had any issues. I would suggest a bunk ladder if you are using the upper bunk, don't know why they did not included one.

Did you find a bunk ladder that works well? Right now we help our child into the bunk but she would love it if she could get in/out on her own.

No I have not, we are looking for one that will work since we have 2 grand children that are now old enough to use the bunk..I will be contacting a buddy of mine that runs an RV shop to see what is available.

Question for y’all X213 owners. When the rear slide is in, how much access do you have to the inside of the camper? Can you get to thebathroom? Kitchen sink? If you were traveling and wanted just a quick overnight stay for a break, could you sleep without opening the slide? Also, how sturdyis the slide? Do you feel any “bounce” when the spouse rolls over in the middle ofthe night?
