In two years of use only blew one 30 amp fuse for slide #1. Apparently they tend to go if you run the slides on battery only, especially if the battery charge is low I'm told. Carry two spares but hasn't happened since.

What fuses should I stock up on? Blowing a fuse seems to be a common occurrence.
I too read about all the blown fuses and stocked up on every fuse I could see on the trailer. Two years and I haven't blown a single fuse. Run slides in and out on battery all the time but my battery is always fully charged.

I have never had a camper where the kitchen slides. I didn't see anything online, but does anyone ever experience leaks from the plumbing and gas lines sliding in and out?
I have not looked under one to see how they work.

I had a slideout kitchen in my Rockwood Roo 23SS and never had a problem with the gas or plumbing. The trades have been using flex lines for gas and plumbing for years. In fact, I've had a flex gas line feeding my natural gas BBQ at home for at least 10 years. I wouldn't be concerned about it at all.

If it has been wired correctly from the factory......and lots haven't (including mine) there are 3 blue buttons on the top right side of the Genesis unit marked A, B & C. Pressing each one gives you the status of each set of speakers. A for living room, B for bedroom and C for outside. You can turn each set on and off with these controls. Possibly all three are turned off on your unit.

There should be a set of cables coming up the back of the tv. They should be plugged into the outputs on the tv. Then all you need to do is change the source on the Audio Ours works. If your require more details I will be in the trailer this coming Monday.

Does anyone know if you can use the mount and TV from the living room and hang on the TV hanger outside?
Mo 1954, I am also having issues getting the TV sound to play through the radio. Everything else with the radio works fine. Appears to be hooked up correctly. I really don't want to pull the Genesis out to see if its hooked up correctly back there.

Yes you can use the living room tv outside. The inside mount arm comes apart and fits in the outside mount.

As for sound I have been in the trailer and the audio outs from the tv go to the stereo. In our 2016 it's an irv66 not a genesis. I put the unit to tv as the source. Interesting enough is that the tv needs to have some volume turned up in the tv itself to get sound out of the stereo. Not what I expected but works for me but if your volume is off in the tv you also can't control the volume from the stereo.

Just got my 27RLWS this October and I've read a lot of post of people replacing their tires and axles because of possible blow outs and load limits on other TTs and 5ers on the FR site here Is this a known problem on this model and something I should plan on buying tires allready?

Thanks for any advise
