iRV33 Radio problem

Hi,
I just received my new 2015 233S and the first time out the Radio shuts off after anywhere from30 to 60 seconds. Actually let me clarify, the sound will stop coming out of the speakers. The screen is still lit, i can change stations, inputs, mute, volume, etc and even hear a small click/pop if i turn toggle one set of speakers. I have talked with the dealer and will schedule a repair since it is under warranty, but before I bring it in wanted to make sure it wasn't something stupid or easy to fix. I tried replacing the fuse for the radio. The manual is useless of course. It says the radio has a sleep function, but doesn't tell anything about it. (how to set it, cancel it or anything at all) I tried the factory reset by holding the power button for five seconds, no different. Also if I wait for awhile after it stops producing sound, I can turn it back on again and sound will come out of the speakers. I am not sure if it is a heating issue or something else. I can't find any info on the web for this iRV technologies radio except they are trademark by patrick industries, and manufactured by Quest Audio. Thanks.

Sounds like it could be a loose speaker block plug (as the loose connection warms up it separates from the radio till it cools down), but it is most likely a failed component inside.

If you are a radio repair tech (or it is out of warranty), you could open it up and using a "cold spray" hit each component while it is malfunctioning to see which one causes the radio to start playing again.

Order that component and do a board level repair. Sometimes (depending on what failed, you can "piggyback" the part).

Thanks. It is under warranty so it will be going in for a repair. I just didn't want it to be something simple / stupid before bring it. I thought it could be a heating issue.

We have a new 8311ss and are experiencing the same problems with our radio. Do you know what the dealer did to fix yours?

Unfortunately, my appointment isn't until mid December. I will try to ask. I believe it is what herk said because depending on the ambient temperature the time changes for shut off. Also time changes if it cools off.

Find that fuse that runs the radio-pull it and let it re-boot for 30 secs or so.Then re apply it.Don't be afraid to pull fuses to find it-you won't hurt anything.We have the same deal with our Tv when I switch the main battery off.That means a re-boot everytime-but it always works.

Thanks boss hoss, but that was the first thing I did thought I fixed it and cut out like before. I even replaced the fuse just in case it was blown. Looked fine, but wouldn't work with tester.

No, I posted a new tread, need help or advice. I will be contacting manufacturer starting tomorrow and will not stop ringing their phone until they come up with a solution. I suggest that anybody having this issue do the same as me the more heat we put on them the faster they come up with a fix.

I finally got my trailer back. Service said radio was broken and since it is under warranty, they just replaced the whole radio.

Did it fix your issue? Dealer told me that they stopped replacing them because they are failing also.

I hope so, because of the weather, I haven't had a chance to check it out. Trailer went straight into storage. They said they tested it for over an hour with no failure.

I have spoken with Mark Atkins with Forest River. He told me that they hope to be shipping the newest redesigned units to dealers next week. These newest ones are supposed to be the final fix. So I would contact your dealer in about a week or two to see if they have received any. I am waiting on two units to come in for my TT. We shall see what happens in the next few weeks.

IRV66

I have the same problem with my IRV66 in a new rockwood. I replied to hobos other thread. Mine has been replaced 3 times by the dealer. All of them are bad. They claim it is a software issue, but they don't have a fix for it. They said I had to wait 3 weeks and they would get back to me. I have another week to wait.

I totally understand the frustration and am having the same issues. I chose to get get a Polk Audio high end sound bar and sub. I will tie the IRV DVD player into the sound bar and use it like that. The sound bar also has Bluetooth I can pair my phone to and stream music. I will stay on top of forest river and my dealer and hopefully get it replaced as well but to be honest the sound quality of the stock radio sucks. Sound bar cost me. $200. Sound quality is Much better!

Ditto with us also on the iRV Technologies!! PIECE OF CRAP!! The radio and CD's keep jumping, we played the CD's in the truck, and they are fine. The volume does not go below 6, when we are listening outside, we usually turn it very low so that we only hear it, not the neighbors. Last night we tried a DVD (you are right about the manuel, no use) heard sound, but nothing came up on the TV. We have warranty and we are calling our dealer up on Monday so he can walk me thru the DVD situation. Unbelieveable!!
