I will wanting to do the the same thing to my X213 when I get it next spring... No chance of any pictures. If you got some pictures can you email me. I am curious where the two very large and heavy 6V batteries ended up.. Not much room up in front of the Propane Tanks - Guess that all adds to the tongue weight as well...

Was looking for the furnace in the X-213 pictures I have. Is that the furnace directly under the fridge. It must be the furnace or the Converter... I also see another door/panel under the fridge that has a screen on it. I dont see any floor ducts in any pictures so I reckon the furnace only has one heat outlet in the kitchen area. Also what is the black looking panel in the hallway between the dinette and couch right under the bed entrance. Maybe that is the converter???

I also see no Air Conditioner ducts anywhere except on the A/C itself so that must be like my POPUP A/C.

Hey RoyBraddy, I can answer most of your questions....
-As for the slide, no track on top, tracking under the bed is the only ones.
-Weight limits for Sleeping extended or retracted 1100lbs (no supports needed while retracted to my knowledge)
-Weight limits for storage/cargo when extended, retracted or during travel 200lbs
-Furnace is directly under the fridge heat ducts run throughout the trailer via the walls (3 or 4 throughout including one in the bathroom)
-Black Panel under the bed entrance is the breaker panel (found that out when the wife was using a hot iron at the same time as the toaster one morning)
-AC is roof mounted mid trailer, no ducting for it just blows to the front and back right off the unit.

Any other questions let me know. I am currently getting mine ready for winter. I can send pics if you need them.

More comments on X213...
Has anyone added any cables to the BED SLIDE OUT area. Since it has to move in and out was wondering what you would do with the cables. I'm assuming JAYCO has lights and power inside the bed area already... Must be a cable loop somewhere that moves with the bed slide...

I finally got to download an inside photo showing the bed slide retracted, Thtas pretty neat...

Also has anyone every brought inside water, or dirt that was on the outside of the bed slide and then when retracted all of this ends up on the couch and dinette... Is that a problem ???

The slide out has a light on a coil type cord that plugs into a jack on the ceiling of the trailer. Just like the pop up trailers.

If it has been raining, or if leaves/pine needles etc fall down where I am camping, I will slide the picnic table over and stand on it to clear off the top of the slide out with a broom. Not a big deal.

No power inside the bed slide... hmmmm... I was looking for something on the walls in the few pictures I have of the inside of the bed slide and didnt see anything... With the large opening into the living room I guess you really dont need anything inside the bed slide...

Im guessing that would be room for cut cables if you permanently added some home touches items with the slide moving in and out...

I always like to have a clock and a radio close by where I sleep. No bed lights either I guess...

Looking like if something was added the coiled cord at the entrance side would be the best idea. Open the bed slide out and then plug-in a cable to near the couch wall to power the things up maybe.

I'm thinking I at least gotta have a bed light under the those hanging cabinets - more pondering hehe

Thanks for the info

Looking at pictures again -

Before retracting the bed slide it appears you have to let the couch out and take down the dinete table...

I guess that is no big effort but just more things to do before closing up shop and hitting the road again.

Yes, couch has to go down and table has to be taken down as well.

We use battery operated lighting in the bunk area along with the corded light/fan that Quantum wrote about.

Side note for you or anyone looking into this unit. Pay close attention to the levelness of the bed once fully extended and retracted. I am currently having problems with the bunk being un-level. Jayco's suggested adjustment fix does the trick, but now the rail that the slide runs on digs into the fabric of the couch on the way in. I'm not too happy with this for obvious reasons, it's going to wear a hole in the couch over time not to mention staining the couch if lubrication/dirt etc gets on the rails.
