That's reassuring. Thank you.

We have a 2010 213EXP and we had a slight issue with the slideout motor. The dealer replaced the motor with a heavier one that had a better clutch and now it works perfect. I've been using the new motor for 2 years and have had zero issues.

We really enjoy our 213.

We have had ours for over 2 years, absolutely love it, only issue was the power jack....we had it replaced under warranty and the dealer installed a Atwood 3500 HD. Operates way superior than the old one did. No issues with the slide

Should one be unlucky enough to have the motor give out, I'm guessing there would be some way to manually get the slide in? And, again, thanks for the replies.

You can manually crank the slide in if the motor fails. I hope to never have to do that, though.

If something hardly ever happens, it usually happens to us. Thanks!

Yes, you can manually crank the slide out with the stabilizer jack crank tool.

I made a custom one for my 18V battery drill....the lazy man's electric stabilizer jack!

I'm lazy, haven't even looked at our manual slide option. I do use the electric drill for the stabilizer jacks though. I don't suppose it is the same size socket? What is the correct size?

There is a manual crank located below the center of the bed, the only drawback is that you have lie down between the dinette and couch to use this function and then crawl back out if you are are retracting the bed and vice versa. The only thing that failed on mine is the power jack. They did not supply a crank handle to manally operate it, fortunately I always carry tools with me for any emergency. It was replaced under warranty with a Atwood 3500 lb unit complete witha crank handle. This power jack is far superior to the original.

I know that the more simple the unit, the better since we have experienced that. Our current pop-up is loaded down with "extras". Thanks again.
