Thanks for the confirmation! Thought it might have been a 2 5/16.

Micron; we have had our 213 since 2010 and have never blown a fuse operating any accessory plugged in or unhooked. Might be worth checking your unit for an electrical fault.

Would anyone have easy access to their X213 to determine the height clearance of the lower frame of the rear slide? I have a 4' fence surrounding my parking spot... just wondering how much I'll have to lower it so that I can extend the slide while parked. Thanks!

Just bought our first Jayco - X213!

We've also got a '15 X213. We use the Andersen levelling system and the Andersen hitch. We also use the Andersen chocks for the ground side as they came in the Andersen kit we bought. Then we use the yellow, plastic chocks between the wheels to reduce movement (we were going to get x-chocks but thought we'd try these first since they were cheap and easily obtainable at 9pm at Canadian Tire the night before we left for a trip )

Also, others are correct, warranty is not transferable.

I see you have an F-150. Check your yellow sticker for payload and know your rear GAWR. That '15 X213 is tongue heavy and we are close to our rear axle limit and payload limit. We've got the platinum model with max tow so our payload is 15XX pounds (can't recall exact number) so your model may have much more payload, or much less. And also will depend on people in the vehicle and stuff you're carrying. We wouldn't be able to haul water in the X213 if we wanted to.

Ha! Just go my Andersen delivered to my door the other night too! Really nice design and packaged so well. Did you drill a hole to set your set screw?

No we didn't.

Just ran out my slide. The low point is 42". Of course, give yourself a few inches of leeway.
