What I have read the slide when fully extended should be LEVEL and not drooping down on the far end of it. The results is the slide may tear the tops of the dinette seat or the couch. I was told to always be very cautious of where these top cushions are when bringing in the slide. It always amazed me there was never any designed support braces going down the trailer bumper. Those hugh rear slides has to weight a bunch. This earlier reported problem with the X213 had nothing to do with the slow moving motor problem.
Roy, the earlier reported problem with the X213 has everything to do with the slow moving slide. The reason why the slide was not leveling out was because it could not reach it's proper position because it was under powered by the slide motor. Now with the proper motor powering the slide, and the fuse upgrade, it extends (and retracts) to the correct distance, in-turn bringing it fully out, leveling out and engaging the clutch when fully extended.
Yes you still have to be mindful of the cushion issue, but from the start I never left the dinette cushions in place while retracing the slide, I just throw them up on the King Bed. It does graze my sofa cushion in one spot, but I carry a plastic tote lid that covers that area when retracting that deflects any direct contact between the slide and sofa.
I do agree with you that this slide is rather heavy and i don't know why they never made supports for the slide similar to a TT bed ends or the older Outback version of the rear slide.
