IMHO the Jensen products installed in RVs are pure crap. It's not a question of if they will fail...only when. Forget about repairing them. Rip them out and install some other product.

Jensen is today part of Audiovox which simply means that their car products are far east sourced and nothing to write home about....nor are they the worst. But there's not much left of what made them famous for great car products in the last century.
I sure would keep my car stereo, speakers & dvd player and gps separate from each other if doing it myself. Putting it all in one box just doesn't lead to a quality experience over time. If something breaks, I'd take your unit to someone who makes their living doing car audio/video and get a quality car system with separate RV GPS and DVD player. They'll finish it out right and you'll be happy with each piece of equipment.

Solved the Problem

I believe the problem is caused by the Navigation System. I noticed that on mountain roads where there are few intersections the problem only happened at or near an intersection. I had turned the navigation system sound off some time ago and thought it was not running when I encountered the problem but it apparently was. Turning the navigation system sound back on gives me the navigation system messages instead of the silence I was getting.

Thanks for the suggestions,
Bob Schoner

I have a Jensen in the coach, not the cab of my 2251. However the description of crap is very accurate.
