I have a concertone in my camper and it has been there a year and a half without issues.

I will give a positive post - I really like mine! Radio, cd player, dvd player with MP3 player input along with a memory card and memory stick reader and a remote control to boot! It is no Marantz but all the functions work very well. The new ones even have Bluetooth. My only criticism is that it doesn't have a weather radio built in. I think every camper should have one.

I like the weather radio idea as well - needs to have a button that goes straight to the weather radio

is there any model that has that option ?
- I havent seen any that I know of in any RV's

three years ago concertone complaints were 1/2 this board.

forest river and their concertone subsidiary seem to have cleaned up their act

FR does NOT own Concertone. this has been discussed over and over and it still comes up. in fact, Concertone products can be found in other non-FR RVs.
and many FR divisions don't install Concertone products.

Bob Fields is a Concertone rep that posts here quite often, offering technical help and answering questions.
Concertone has way less problems with their products since he came on board and their newer stuff has way more features than any other RV entertainment system manufacturer, including Jensen.
the number of complaints, for the newer units, have dropped down significantly.

There are many positive posts about Concertone products here.

There have been many complaints about the old units as well.
Since Forum boards see squeaky wheels and not "happy campers" it is inevitable you will be freaked about their products.

thats the key. i noticed that date wise there ar far few concertone complaints
than 3 years ago. I am not against concertone as long as it works. i remember posts 3 years ago were concertone complaints were numerous

as for ownership concertone has FROG on its website and no other manaufacturers
