Loaded (well, slightly overloaded) for camping, 1 battery, 2 20lb tanks on the tongue, 4 bikes under the bunk bed, no fresh water, minimal black tank and empty grey tank gave me a tongue weight of 700lbs (540 with WDH).

I don't know where they get that 390 lbs, but they must have moved everything heavy to the rear bumper, because mostly empty (most weight was behind the axles, except for propane and battery) I was 580lbs (440lbs with WDH)

My CAT scales visits here: https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f...sit-59158.html

As for the tongue weight scale, make sure to test it out after getting the trailer weighed properly to see how accurate it is. I tried out this one: https://www.princessauto.com/en/deta...le/A-p8686024e (Princess Auto is like the Canadian Harbor Freight), and it was ~100lbs under the CAT scale weight. I ended up returning it, and if I were to get something else, it would be a better quality one (and would still test it)

Good luck!

I agree with everyone that tongue weight is over 650# and typically over 700#. When we bought ours, we actually pulled off the propane tanks, the electric jack, the battery and the spare tire and put it all on our lawn. The trailer had only bedding on the beds and nothing else inside. Our scale that maxed at 500# wasn’t able to register the tongue weight. So it was over 500#. I have NO idea where Jayco got 390#. That tongue weight exercise with our X213 is why we now have an F-150 with the Max Tow package.

Furnace access

X213 (2015)-

How do we access the furnace to troubleshoot on the x213? Trying to troubleshoot an ignition problem.

I get the blower to run but no ignition for heat. Have plenty of battery (fully charged). Can hear it trying to ignite but nothing fires up.

To remove it would I have to remove the fridge? The furnace sits below the fridge and I see no way to remove it to work on it. No access from the outside except for the exhaust. I can get a look at it from the panels under the fridge but good luck actually doing anything with it from there.
Any ideas?
