Random Questions..

1. I bought my X23B in July 2013....Will I need to have the brakes checked before the 2014 camping season? I used it probably 6 times last year.

2. As far as the antifreeze goes that was put in the lines for winterization, do I flush it out at the campground once hooked up to their hook-ups?

3. Should I grease the axle fittings?

I'm sure more questions to come and thank you for all of your help!

1) It would not hurt to check them, but it sounds like you do not have many miles on the unit. I have about 7-10K on our 2012 and have not checked the brakes yet. But it is on my to do list for this spring. I do use a laser thermometer and check the brake temperatures when we stop. If all the temps are about the same, in theory all the brakes are working about the same.

2) I flush mine out in the street in front of my house (no off street parking). Parents does theirs in their yard in its summer parking area. A friend he reserves a full hook up site and does it when he arrives to camp. There are lots of ways and places to flush the unit.

3) I would grease the bearings when you check the brakes. They have easy lub hubs, but I have heard many horror stories of the back seal blowing out and grease getting all over the brakes. So I plan to do a grease job at the same time I check the brakes. I will pull the bearings, clean them and manually grease them.
