Its a piece of junk, had mine 3 years and it is toast. Forest River or Concertone will not do anything. I don't see how FR can sell their RV's in good concious to people knowing that the system is "JUNK".

Being a "newbie" - our TT is exactly 60 days post assembly today - I'm not sure I'm qualified to comment on this, but I'm going to anyway. We have a Genesis 3.0 in our Rockwood 8293RKSS and it works GREAT! I'm very pleased with it and I can tell you I was absolutely petrified to even turn it on after reading all of the horror stories on these forums. We did have one slight problem with one of the buttons, which was easily rectified by our dealer. Other than that it has been issue free. Sound is great, the Satellite radio ROCKS and DVD, surround sound, ipod capability, etc. are awesome.

I'm just throwing this out there - we live in Wisconsin, which experiences some VERY frigid temps in the winter and right now, we're going through an extremely hot and humid patch. Do these variances in temperature have anything to do with the problems people are seeing? Not that I want to hijack this thread, but we have 3 televisions in our unit, and I'm wondering if we have to remove them in fall before we put the TT in storage. And on that same note....should we remove the Genesis unit as well? Bob.....I'd be very interested on your thoughts on this as well.

Thanks!! And happy camping everyone. Only 11 more days to go until our next camping trip. Yea!!

I would be willing to split the cost for the service plan with Concertone to upgrade, but I don't feel comfortable if it will only last 1 1/2 years, and they won't stand behind it.

The compact size for what you get is great. If there was a comparable unit that operated the same I probably would check it out. We are seasonal and could use a house unit, but the 12 volt system is nice.
