Make sure you read the included addendum for the iRV 34. I thought mine was bad because all zones worked except zone 3, which just played static. I was packaging it up to send it back and found the piece of paper that explained that Zone 3 can play a separate source and was actually tuned to FM, hence the static.

Is there a way to switch speaker 3 from the radio to CD? and I wish there was a way to adjust the volume on the outside speakers.

Do you have the iRV33 or 34? See my post above yours about the iRV34.

It's an iRV 34. I just wasn't sure if that meant that it has to stay on FM or not. We had such a good system in our last mini lite that we were disappointed that this didn't work the same. (just don't remember what that system was!)

You can change the source and the volume for zone 3. I'm not home so I don't have the instructions on how to do it. I'll check when I get home.

Sorry I am a year late, but never saw your reply to my post.

Do I understand correctly that to replace my now-fully dead ZX600 and install the iRV66 I need an adapter between that unit's wiring and the existing wiring? Or all of the wiring needs to be replaced?

Thanks.

1. The units on sale are fully tested and will not have the problems documented here thanks to the good work by the radio manufacturer in resolving.

2. The wiring is not compatible as the ZX600 was the last unit built with that wiring configuration. The follow on ZX690/700 & GT3.0 were changed and t he iRV is a plug and play replacement for those with your wiring harness adapter.

3. The iRV66 has multiple HDMI outputs and is compatible with today's TV's. Don't forget when your ZX600 was built we did not even have some the available audio/video formats that are commonplace today.

Please let me know if you have additional questions and feel free to contact me directly!

In regards to Todd Eash at Patrick Industries, for replacement IRV-66.
This guy is AMAZING. Thank you so much for referring me to him. A few quick questions and my replacement is getting ready to ship!
Thank YOU guys, for having this forum so that newer RV'ers like myself don't pull ALL of our hair out when we have issues!

Kathy

I wrote to Forest River and they sent me these instructions (which weren't included in the booklet with the iRV34 that we got.) I finally got a chance to test it today.
With radio on in normal mode you can turn any zone on/off with a quick push of any zone (! 2 or 3)
To change source for zone 3:
Push and hold zone 3 button until the display reads Z3 followed by the current source that zone is playing, such as Radio/DVD/BT. Then push the mode button to change the source that is on zone 3. Now the volume knob is controlling on the source of zone 3 playback.
To control the volume on zone 1 and 2: Press and hold zone 1 for two seconds and now the volume knob is controlling zone 1 and 2 and all other operations are back to normal.

Hope this is helpful to someone else.

I RV radio

IRV technologies- DVD sound cuts in and out when movie is playing. Is there a fix? I have reset all the system settings. The trailer is brand new.

Thank you NC Robi
We have a 2017 Mini Lite (2109S) with the IRV 34 and in the PDI, they sort of skipped over the IRV and handed us the booklet which doesn't talk at all about Zone 3.

We got home and I turned it on and Zone 3 just blasted away! I shut it down and put it on my list to look at but frankly was a bit concerned about turning it back on as the volume was so loud! I just printed off the instructions you posted and will try it this morning, once everyone is awake!
