Concertone!can't wait!!!

I have acouple of threads concerning the entertainment system in our 2011 Rockwood 2701ss.I guess I'm either just too stuborn or stupid,but I can't believe that either one of these devices won't work and am thinking maybe I'm not doing something right as far as the connections ect.Even though I have power to the radio and the xm mounting dock,I can't get either one of them to turn on.I find it ironic that in February 2010 before I bought this trailer I was on this website and read all about the Concertone system and expressed my concerns to the dealership and was assured that we would be getting "new and improved" 700zx system.We can't wait for the sound from the heavens stereo system to mesmerize us....if we can just get it to turn on.Please offer any suggestions asap as the anticipation is killing us.

Please, don't take this personal, I beg of you, please.

I wish I could offer assistance and tell you exactly what to do, but I can't see waisting your time fooling around with it. Even if you do get it to operate, it will disappoint you in the end.
The Concercrap in my precious TT worked great. No problems what so ever. Until, one night, while watching a good movie, one side of the sound took a dump. The dealer replaced it and all went well. I sold the TT and the Concercrap did the same with the new owner. "How disappointing", he said. He bought a replacement on Ebay and so far, it works great(until it decides to take another dump).
I recently bought a fifth wheel. It had a very nice Concercrap unit with the satellite radio attached. It works great. Great sound, great picture. But, I can't see going through a disappointing camping trip, so I removed it, prior to a catastrophic failure, to install a name brand Phillis unit.
I now have a rectangular piece of plastic to throw on the campfire if I run out of fire wood.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

I would try one last thing, disconnect the negative battery lead on your battery and wait 5 min rehook and see what happens. I just have one question though. Why have you not taken this to your dealer to get it fixed? I know I would have been on the phone with mine 5 min after it happened and they would be on the case. As an example our dining room table has a couple hair line cracks in the surface where they bonded the top pieces, I emailed them a few pics and a new table was on order from the factory within 4 hrs.

I am in Canada and purchased our trailer in the U.S.(saved $10,000) The dealership we bought our trailer through has been quick to reply after I contacted them,I am now waiting for them to send me a form to ensure that I will in fact send the ones back that don't work and then they will order me another one. I guess I can see their point,but I already have something to prop open the entry door from the garage.I have a local rv repair shop that will do the work but we are leaving tomorrow for a week and was hoping for a reply saying " Oh!We had the same problem and just pushed MIRACLE button on the remote" or something.Not a big deal,I was more concerned about the leak we found from the bathroom skylite.

Concertone Models?

Does anyone know if Forest River is still installing Concertones is their newly manufactured TTs? Thought I read a recent thread that they were changing/installing a different brand. Expect to "pickup" a Rockwood 2304S in August - was wondering what to expect, and wat model if it is a Concertone.
