Thanks! Ordered one for myself. Looks easy enough to install.

I recently made one more mod to my trailer. I added some more interior work surface which doubles as a handy table:

Jayco X213 Quick Table/Work Surface Restricted Ayerspace

Inspired by the others before me. Click the link to see more details.

Smile Added bug screens to our X213 today

Last weekend I converted our AC unit and furnace to use a wall thermostat. While I was poking around in the trailer finding a way to run thermostat wire from the AC to the wall where the furnace thermostat was I found some dirt dauber nests behind the fridge. So this weekends task was to install bug screens.

Slide out question

Question for my fellow X213 owners. Do you clean off your slideout before you slide it it? If you do, how do you reach it without hauling a huge ladder, and what do you clean it with exactly? Do you ever condition the squeegee seal on the top?

Thanks in advance

I carry a long squeegee. When is raining the the water can drip on the couch when you close up so pull the water off first. Mostly I try not to camp in that kind of weather. Aside from rain I haven't cleaned it off. I also haven't conditioned the rubber. My unit isn't a year old yet. However I do know some that condition at the start of the season or at the end.

Yes, I clean off the top. I use a little Cosco step stool that we've been using for the kids climbing into the top bunks (this one, I believe: https://amzn.com/B00DQC8XU8). I bought a telescoping window cleaner (squeegee on one side, scrubber on the other). The step stool gets me just high enough to see over the top to make sure I get everything. I haven't conditioned the seal yet, but I plan to.

Can someone get me a pic of the underside of the top bunk? We just finished reassembling the front area and I'm pretty sure the dealer forgot to give us some pieces back.

I took the bracket off an old RV grill I wasn't using and made this table out of some cheap wood, and then painted it with countertop paint for durability. Sorry for the bad photo but I took it today while camping so I don't have any photo editing tools handy.

I also use a stool but I bought a small leaf blower that I use to blow all the stuff off the top of the slide before I close up. It works really well and is pretty fast just plug it in with extension cord

I use a battery powered leaf blower with a smal step stool. Works great.

Does this work for the rain as well or do you not worry about getting water off before you slide it in?
