x2 on the Revolution! I had them activate it before I picked it up. I read the posts on here about how happy people were with it. So, I just had a regular hitch installed and use the revolution. I've had to make some tight turns back into a camping spot and never got anywhere near the back of the cab.

Minor problems. The air mattress on the couch leaked and the dealer had a new one in about two weeks. My Genesis radio after a month of use won't shut off completely. I read about many problems with them so I simply put a switch on the powerwire,

I find that my Genesis radio has poor reception. Is yours the same way?

Some of the folks with Sabres are finding that the FM antenna is just balled up and laying behind the radio. I read someone tied the FM radio into the over-the-air rooftop antenna (BarryD0706, I think) to get better reception.

Might be worth pulling the radio and seeing what's up.

We too have terrible FM reception on our 2013 Flagstaff. Can only get one station static-free. We have a Genesis unit. Sounds great with CDs.

I do find that. Even the weather stations are weak when a hand held works. I'm impressed with what it's supposed to be but not impressed with it's performance at all.

I have used the DVD a couple of times but I mostly use it for the Satellite radio amp.

See post #17 in this thread. It details how to use your roof (batwing) antenna for the Genesis, and it makes a world of difference.

Welcome to the forum. We picked up our 2013 on October 2012. Have no problems other than recall on skylights. Was at the dealers for two weeks though. All and all a great 5er.
