Welcome!
We also have the X213 and love it.
I'm not sure what you mean about a shelf for the outdoor grill. If its the grill that comes with the trailer there should be a mounting bracket on the pass side of the trailer towards the rear where the grill mounts. Underneath at that point there should also be a quick-connect for the propane.
I use an Equalizer 1000/10000 WDH. It does a great job.
I bought a 20' & 15' Rhino sewer hose. I generally only need the 20' hose but its nice to have the 15' just in case.
Same with fresh water. I have two 25' fresh water hoses but rarely ever need more than one.
If you get the Anderson leveler let me know how you like it. I been close to buying one but have read an equal number of reviews that like it or hate it. For now I'm using a few 2x6's.
Two tips if you don't mind.
1. Do not use the electric tongue jack, power awning or rear slide when not hooked up to your TV or shore power or you will blow fuses.
2. Be sure to pack a broom or small leaf blower for cleaning off the top of the rear slide before closing it. (A small ladder is very useful too. I've gotten away with moving the picnic table closer to the camper in a pinch).

For a walk through on your TT check below YouTube:


And there are others videos there also.

WalMart had a decent sewer hose that we've been using for past 2 seasons that included the 90 degree attachment that goes into ground drain hole. Seeing there are so many WalMarts around it's a good place for 'some' of those necessary items.
Amazon has many products that are same product as "higher" priced RV places, find something one place then check same product price on Amazon, you might be amazed..
I've never had issues opening awning w/o shore or TV power, but mine only opens via battery power.

Welcome!

Regarding levelers, scrap lumber is free. I have always used boards.

Regarding the shelf, if you are looking for a burner shelf like most Jayco pups have, no such beast seems to exist elsewhere in the world. The bracket and propane outlet on the side of the TT are only for the RVQ. Now the Q should have a steel bracket that mounts to the rail, and they are available. Found a link here on JOF for the RVQ bracket, can be purchased directly from the mfg. Will edit and add link if I can find it again.
I really miss the outdoor stove we had on our 1007, and was bummed when I came to the realization that I can't apparently get one. But being a glass half-full guy I realized that the stove itself was pretty crappy. So I bought a really well rated Coleman Gladiator instead. I am still trying to figure out how I will attach a shelf to the fitting on the side of our TT to hold it, but I know I will figure out a solution.
ETA: see post #22 in this thread, although there are some other inventive solutions peppered throughout https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f3...er-8344-3.html

Yeah... I'm starting to think that too. Do you cut your planks long enough for both wheels on the same side?

That's what I do. I also cut one short enough for only one tire to sit on. The trailer will only raise 1/2 the board thickness if placed under one tire. Little more "fine tuning" that way.

I cut an angle (as much as the mitre saw will allow) on the end of the board to make it easier on the tire.

Just make sure the board is wide enough from the whole tire. Don't want to stress the tire in anyway by having it hang over the edge of the board.

That's awesome! I never even thought of just raising one wheel to get 1/2 the height of a board. This is why I love these discussions.
