Radio Problem

We picked up our new 2012 Jayco X20E a couples of weeks ago and have love it but are have a problem with the radio, it keeps turning itself on. No matter how many times we turn it off we come back to find it on. This problem is not in tow, it is happening when the camper is sitting parked. We have disconnected the battery for the time being.

Is your remote control stuck in a sofa or chair and turning the radio on? If not, sounds like a warranty repair by your dealer to me.

There's lots of advice and information in forums... sometimes it is correct. For example, all of my posts are made by a political appointee who got the job as a reward for contributions to my diesel bill.

call your dealer we had to have them send us a new radio we had the same thing happen . It would randomly turn on and drain our batt. Our dealer just sent us the new one and I installed it saved us a trip in. easy to do just mark the wires as you unhook them

This exact thing happened to us.. there is a reset button on the front. You use a pen to press it.
Check your owners manual.. it will explain it.

according to me its the alarm or the remote which is stuck inside sofa or seat. don't worry it is not a major problem. i think you need to go through the manual.
