Removing Genesis on 2014 23ikss

In the process of relocating the wiring for my mod of installing the fireplace, I thought I would correct the wiring for the speakers on the Genesis unit at the same time. All of the speaker connections are on the right side. I can't see the connections and I can't remove the Genesis because of the connections. Any suggestions on how to pull it out?Click image for larger version

I redone the speaker connections on our Genesis unit last summer. I had the same problem you are having trying to get the whole unit out of the cabinet. Finally I just followed the speaker wires back to the plug that they plug into and found that the plug on the wires has a small tab on it which you just push in on while wiggling on the plug and it will unplug from the unit. There is enough wire length on the plug to then bring it out through the switch panel opening and work with it. I also added two speakers above the sofa in our camper and hooked them to the unit. I now have channel A as outside speakers left and right, channel B as inside ceiling speakers left and right and channel C as speakers above the sofa left and right.

Not sure I understand your problem. I see you already popped off the side covers on the genesis, now just unscrew the exposed screws and you can pull the whole genesis unit out and rewire it. There is even a sticker on the back of it that tells what wire colors are what. Does that answer your question? Not sure.

I think his wires are too short to remove the unit. That's my interpretation atleast.
I'd do like what was already suggested and unplug the plug from the unit through that access hole if need be.

Ok I understand now. Sorry my wires had plenty of slack to remove the unit. Agreed, use control panel access hole if possible.

Thanks everyone. The problem is not that the wires are too short. The problem is all the wires are not connect on the back, or the side facing the access gained by removing the control panel, but the far side facing the kitchen wall! I cannot see them, but I can touch them. It feels like everything is connected on that side. The unit will not slide out unless some, if not all of these are disconnected. I put that idea on hold and just worked on the fireplace!

Copy. I would think if you tilt it it would come out but I guess the hole is too small.
Do you have a link for a post on the fireplace install? I'm a bit interested in the one you went with and the depth.

You are correct, the hole is just the size of the unit. It will only slide out about an inch before it catches.
I have no link, but here's a few pictures. I found a 18ef023gra in a local pawn shop. The opening had to be 18" wide and 17" tall. The way I had to mount it from the front gave me a depth of about 7 1/2". With all of the wires secured to the back wall, I had around 2" of clearance. I still have to finish the trim. I'll post more when done.Click image for larger version
