It was setup with a full water tank and I will probably travel with only 1/4 tank so loaded it will be close to correct ( I hope! ). Driving home it was one hand, four finger at 55 to 60 mph on two lane highway. Opposite direction semi's were a non event, couldn't feel them. Will need to wait to find out the effect of same direction passing semi's on 4 lane highways. This is with a 2014 Silverado 1500 with 5.3 V8 and tow package. Plenty of power for level roads, won't get into mountains till probably next year. Love the power stabilizers, worth every penny. No problems found on walk through, looking forward to first trip! Dan
Smart man!

We have the same trailer (Rockwood version), truck, and hitch.

You will feel the semis some as the come up on your side but once you learn to anticipate it and adjust for it, it's not a big deal.

We just finished a 1,200 mile trip and it towed great, even in the Smoky Mountains. Like Wmoses, 60 mph seems to be the place to be.

We lived in it for three weeks and my two year old and I were in it most weekdays while my wife was at work (weather was hot and nasty). Plenty of room!

Our shower did start leaking while we were on the trip. We discovered it when water started running out into the kitchen! Ruled out drain and the nozzle/knob panel. It only leaks when water is hitting the left wall so we were still able to use it. It's now at the dealer waiting to be fixed.

Overall, we love our trailer!

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!
Rats Nest! Youroo!!

It just seems strange to me (though I'm not an acoustical engineer) to mount a speaker and then put a wall in front of it. I've been looking for a speaker grille to mount on that wall. I'll cut a big hole in the wall, and we should be good to go...

That was the first issue with ours, discovered during the shakedown camping trip. Turned out to be the caulking at the base of the shower walls. The leak was not as bad as youirs sounds ... just a < 1' long trickle along the floor either side of the shower. Caulked it up with some silicone and no more leaks.

Apparently hidden subwoofer is one of the improvements for 2015. And we haven't tried our shower yet, but thanks for the heads up. I'll be watching!!!

Along with the quieter more relaxing ambiance through unconnected speakers.

We had the same shower issue. First shower and water on the floor. Spent a few hours stripping out the silicone and resealing it. No problems. Remember there are low skilled/low paid people working on RV's everywhere. We get a basic TT and the rest is up to us to fix and modify. Sharpen your maintenance skills and get to work.

Well my next project is my rear window track that was totally demolished by whoever assembled the window prior to installation. The top screw folded the track over and enlarged the hole so the track drops down and window will not stay up. Hopefully the track is available as a part.

I'm lucky on the tub surround. In that we haven't used the shower yet.. also lucky because we don't have to remove any old silicone...because there never was any there in the first place.
