Guess what I did today..=)

We bought a 2011 x213 in January

Today I took everything off of the tongue area and cleaned up all the rust and painted it. The "brake away'" wire got wrapped around my wire wheel and the rest is history.....I need to order a new one .
My questions: Many of the replacement brake away switches come with a charger....Does the x213 charge its own batteries when connected to a land line?
I'm pretty sure it charges off the TV when in tow.. Am I correct?

Also: This is a 5 year old camper and the nut and bolt holding the spare was frozen in place and the weld broke when I tried to remove it. I would have been stuck with no way of removing the spare...The Lesson is---- its not enough to check the air pressure. Try and remove it from the cradle
Thanks again

Welcome. I'll try and answer your questions. Yes it should charge being towed with the 7 pin connector. Your unit should have a converter and will charge the battery(s) while on shore power. I don't know if you have a manual for your unit but here is a link to an online downloadable.
