X213 slide scuff marks

Hello all,

We are just about to take our x213 out for the first time. So we have had it at the house and the slide in and out several time and a little towing practice. I noticed some scuff marks on the outside of the slide out. Is this "to be expected "? Or is there a problem? Everything seems to be working fine.

Thanks
Doug

Is it from the rubber gasket or is there paint missing?

Make sure the large rear bed slide is level when moving in and out. Prior to 2010 Models the slides developed a hugh angle and some where so so bad they would tear the upholstery on the couch and dinette seats...


As you notice that is one large area that may be prone to slight warping which will surely create a weather leak around the door panel seals. Needs to be inspected alot for proper sealing...

The so called bicycle storage door was also a weather leak door seal area in the early days of the X213...

We really looked at the X213 concept in 2009/2010 days and almost purchased one to get back into having hard walls on our camper... We loved the X213 which was light enough to be safely towed with the F150 truck and would fit our needs just fine for the two of us.

The 12-inch wide compartment in the storage area that runs the whole length of the front wall is the perfect spot for installing many items supporting larger batteries installed on the X213 tongue area etc...

I had all kinds of mod ideas going for the X213...


I was looking at removing the two beds in the storage area and adding a wall about two feet just inside the storage door. Then the middle area would be built into a L-desk area with hutch to support my Ham Radio setups and full computer station.


Today however we are still running the roads and off-grid camping areas with Starcraft 14R/T Popup Camper.

I think you are going to love your X-213...

We have not had any issues like this with our 2011 X213, but I have always made sure the camper was level when before I opened the slide.

Ok. Will make sure it's level. Hadn't paid a ton of attention to the side to side level. But this is our first camper so I'm learning

Dougflyer71 - I was stating to make sure the slide is level with the trailer. There are adjustments for that. It may be off and needs to be taken back to the dealer for adjustments... This was an issue with the earlier X213s... This may be what is causing your scuff marks on the roof of the slide portion.

When you look at this google image you can see how level the extended slide is with the trailer roof line... It will be very noticeable when it is out of alignment... I went looking online for a photo of one that needed adjustments but couldn't find one haha...

We have no marks on the slide out of our 2010 213. The slide out motor on ours was replaced under warranty (in 2012) because the slide was not fully extending, and has worked perfectly ever since. We also always level the trailer before extending the slide.

Ok. Well the slide is level with the rest of the trailer. The scuff marks are actually on the right side of the slide.
