The radio in my 19RD was junk. It would freeze up when playing a dvd and would not recognize my ipod. After hassling with it for a few days I took it out and replaced it with a great sounding Pioneer dvd/receiver from a local car audio store. I had to make my own faceplate to cover the over sized hole in the cabinet. The audio store had blank black plastic panels for that purpose. Recently I added an XM radio into the system and all is working great.

Actually, working with dealership on a replacement. After my test, its definitely a bad stereo as far as radio reception, but other than that everything else works.

I hope they can send me a new one i can replace myself in the mail. I'd rather not have to hitch up and take it back to the dealership.

If its anything like my stereo (IRV32), then it's hooked up to the ceiling speakers and outside speakers. The only thing is within the TV you have to enable HDMI-CEC and then have it search for your stereo under the device list. Once it does this it should work. Also, your HDMI cable must be plugged into a HDMI (Arc) port on both sides and set the stereo to AUDIO 2 as the source. Keep in mind the tv speaker will be disabled, but the ceiling ones sound so much better. You get more of that surround sound effect.

Another item that is missed sometimes on the installation of or replacement of a radio is a good ground connection. Especially noticeable if you have no clear signals but seem to pick up the whirring noise associated with running engine ignition. Over the years, Aside from a bad radio or a disconnected antenna, I have found bad grounds due to rust primarily, to be a consistent nuisance. A long test lead and a multi-meter works miracles sometimes ! Good luck!

No, it still exists.....someone told me to call the manufacturer, but i never did. We find that we use the Bluetooth/Amazon music more than the radio. The dealership (Camping World) is willing to troubleshoot it if we take it in (over 55 mi. away). I figure it will be more worthwhile if other issues occur. Might as well try and kill 2 birds with one stone if you know what in mean.

We have the same unit in our 2018 BHDS. Dealer told use once it gives us an issue, call them. Not a matter if it will go bad, but when it will.
He asked his factory rep. why in the heck they put such a piece of crap in the campers. He was more willing to take his chances with Furrion.

At the risk of quoting myself I must correct what I said without thinking. The radio has its own antenna and has nothing to do with boosted TV antenna. At least that's how our 21QB is equipped.
