Subwoofer?

Does anyone know where the subwoofer is located on this model? I had the Genesis out because of Surround problems (they hadn't hooked up the centre and right front speaker) and I did see two wires leading to a subwoofer, but was unable to see or hear anything, even on a loud movie like "Twister". If I could just hear it I wouldn't have to pull out the Genesis again.

How do you get the Genis out of the cabinet?

On mine it's on the floor, to the left, behind a false wall. Showed no indication of working.

I pulled the Genesis, subwoofer wires were solid. I then pulled out the false wall, and guess what.... Subwoofer never hooked up. Wires just hanging there. Out came the butt connectors again.

Now it sounds right...

There is a bezel that goes around the unit. There are two small notches on the bottom. I used a thin carburetor screwdriver to pry very gently to pop the bezel off. If you are lucky it won't break. I apparently am not lucky.

There are four Robertson screws holding the Genesis in place. Once removed the unit will pull straight out. You will be amazed at the rats nest behind it.

On my unit, the Centre speaker, the right front speaker and the subwoofer were never connected. Makes one wonder!

Another assembly line crackhead just threw it there and expected your dealer to fix it. Better to fix it yourself. Check the day the TT was built. I'm wondering if there is some correlation to being Monday/Friday units. Ours was built on a Tuesday and so far, no real issues.

Man you get up early. Believe it or not, I had thought of this already. My date of manufacture was MONDAY April 7th (which coincidentally was my birthday). Though I'm sure manufacture time is much more than one day. I was told about ten days total.

My daughter was razzing me before delivery about the losers she saw building RV's on a program on Science Channel. The problem is from the top down.

Mopar has More Power

I assume you have the 5.7 engine. I have more suspension but am temporarily towing with a 20 yr old Draw-Tite with 750 lb bars. I am getting a little bounce on rough roads (in Canada they're all rough).

Waiting on my Equalizer 4 pt 1200, which should be here this week.

Powerwise, I can set my cruise at 100 km (62 mph) and she's turning 1800 RPM in 5th. Awesome.

Get a good WDH. I ordered Equalizer so I wouldn't have to drill the trailer frame.

Yes, we have the 5.7 V8. We have a weight differential hitch. We can't fly up a hill, usually take it easy through the mountain passes but the truck has plenty of power to pull it.
