Thanks about the on/off feedback. Would a low battery in the remote make it unreliable?
I suppose it could. Stranger things have happened.

When I mentioned the remote, I was thinking about a remote we have for the under cabinet lights in our kitchen. It sits in the same drawer as the phone book, take-out flyers, pens, etc... Every once in a while the phone book or something ends up sitting on it, then as people walk through the kitchen, the slight vibrations are just enough for the phone book to trip the remote.

Of course, that's an RF remote, not an IR remote like the radio would have, but if the radio's remote is stored where it might be bumping the button and it can manage to get a signal to the radio, it could happen. The first thing that comes to mind is if it was in some kind of holster, but sitting in a drawer that had cracks is also feasible.

Not always the case.

A good suggestion to help with the process of elimination. Removing the batteries would work as well.



Liquid spills will often produce symptoms like this. Excessive cleaners or stuff like "Pledge" in the area could penetrate the radio too.

I think you have a loose speaker plug (has all the speaker wires). Be very careful and using a flat bladed screw driver and ONLY the bottom slots in the face trim cover; remove it by lifting out and up. Use care as the top pins are easy to break.

Remove the 4 screws holding it to the wall and slide the unit out so you can see the back.

The loose speaker socket should be obvious.

My remote does not work. Never used - batteries good. Am I to program it or something - or do I just get a replacement?

Screen Issues

Hi, We just purchased a 2014 Puma Unleashed and the screen on the Genesis is cloudy and unreadable. This is a used RV and I only have a blue quick start sheet, no warranty papers. I need to know who to contact for a replacement screen. Thanks!

Get it replaced, you can program it to your tv but if it will not work on the unit alone, I would think it's bad. You can try like the Old Coot did he pointed at the ceiling to make it work. That's no joke he showed me....

The Genesis radios are made by Concertone (Concertone® Home Page). However, you can often replace them with just about any car stereo, depending on which features you want. The only thing the RV models provide that you can't get in a car stereo is the built in 3 zones (A, B, C). 2 zones on a fair number of them, but not 3. A simple A/V switch can often address that.

You forgot Surround Sound and usb ports. Concertone is the only people that I know have that included, great for movies...

You can get those in a car stereo too. Not really unique to RV radios.
