Concertone Alarm HELP

We just purchased a Salem LA 312QBBS. It came with a Concertone z75. The first night we camped the alarm went off in the middle of the night. I figured out how to turn it off by pushing the power button. The next day I checked it and it does not show that that the alarm is on. Thinking it was off I did not worry about it again until I was again woke up in the middle of the night. Five of us have looked at the manual and nothing. I finally just set the clock and set the alarm to go off during the day. Our second trip out the alarm did the same thing. So everyday the alarm goes off at 11am. To make a long story short, does anyone know how to turn the alarm off for good? Also, I never set the alarm the first time. It came that way.

It has been horrible being woke up at 3am by this very load beeping over the surround sound system. The first night I thought our brand new camper was on fire or something. Then once I figured out what it was it took me a few minutes to figure out how to make it stop.

But in all seriousness, I really need to know how to shut this thing off.

Hahahah I am having the SAME EXACT problem with mine. The book only tells you to hit the power button to turn it off....yet it does it again the next day.

What we do is make sure all the speakers are off and turn the volume all the way down if we are not using it....that way we never know or hear when it is going off.....lol

Hadn't thought of turning the volume all the way down. Will have to remember to do that. I am assumming that it is going off everyday in the back yard. But I have not been in the TT at 11am to find out.

Glad to hear I am not the only one with this problem

Have you tried calling concertone???
If you call forest river they will give you the number for
concertone.
They are hard to get on the phone but I assume if you try enough times,
sooner or later you'll get to speak to someone there in tech support.
They can either tell you your unit is defective or tell you how to
set or un-set the stupid alarm.

We'd all like to hear what they tell you!!

I brought all the books in yesterday from the camper and I think the concertone number is on the manual. Calling them was my next step. May have to wait till Monday. I will fill you all in on what they say.

We are camping in the back yard tonight and I will play with mine and try to figure it out. We had the same problem when ours was new it was 2:00 EVERY afternoon and took me days to get it off.

Dont ask why the back yard LOL Ok I had a business trip to Nashville for a meeting tonight. Drove up to meet and spend the night (in a hotel argh) and called to report in and the meeting was canceled so drove back home and we are cooking out and going camping in the yard. Nasty weather may move in or we would head to the lake.

Therein lies the question:
If an alarm goes off in a TT and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?
