I have SEVEN kids (all grown now) and took them camping in both a class c and a TT, so while you have four kids you still have a ways to go! I even took all seven which included three 2 year olds at the time camping for a weekend by myself! My wife had the weekend to herself at home.
I think you got good advice here...

If it doesn't work I will have kids jumping all over me. Everyone out there with 4 kids will understand my concerns!

We tent camped with 4 kids and the daughter usually broght a friend, no entertainment system, nothing and always had great experiences. Never got a trailer till they were all long grown up. Our ZX700 has been flawless as well.

Here is my email from them:
TOM,

UNFORTUNETLY I WILL NOT KNOW WHICH MODEL OF DVD/STEREO IS IN YOUR CAMPER UNTIL IT IS COMPLETED. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF DIFFERENT OPTIONS THAT COULD BE IN THERE. IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELSE I CAN HELP YOU WITH LET ME KNOW.

If I may ask; who sent you that reply from Forest River? Surely they would know as would your dealer from where you ordered it. The majority of Roos and Shamrocks come standard with the GT 2.0 (ZX75) and you would only get the GT 3.0 (ZX700) if you had ordered it as an option.

Now this is interesting.

Where did you get the GT 2.0 (ZX75) and GT 3.0 (ZX-700) info from?

This is a new one on me...
I have a ZX-700 in my 2010 Flagstaff and I am sure it does not have the features in the Genesis models.

You are correct; your Concertone doesn't have the same features and the Genesis systems. I was trying to state that the GT 2.0 is the ZX75's replacement and the GT 3.0 is the ZX700's replacement; not equivalent. I should have worded it differently.

Thanks for clearing that up!
I was very confused.

uggh

I have the Concertone ZX-700 in my unit, and the quality of the sound is absolutely horrible. I don't know if the problem is the speakers or the unit itself. All the functions work but the sound is so shallow. There is no bass at all. I have added a large speaker with no improvement, so I suspect the Concertone unit is inferior. I hope to find time to check the polarity (or phase) of all the speakers, but I don't expect to find any improvement. It is a major concern, and I would replace the unit and/or speakers at any cost to be able to listen to quality music. I hope to eliminate the problem and I think I might soon pitch the Concertone in a dumpster.

I would check the wiring first. If it is wired correctly and still sounds bad I would get it swapped out under warranty. I have no problems with my Concertone and am quite pleased with the sound. Good luck!

Bob,
Since my first post a Greg from FR sent me an Email stating: *

GT-2**STANDARD*RADIO

Now is this the same as a Concertone Z85?

Plus you are crazier than I am with kids!

I also have found out the people of this forum missed my humor even though adding a laughing icon after my statement about my kids.
My previous camper was a 1990 Jayco pop up. So I certainly know how much fun camping with no radio and just a campfire is with the kids. I will always have my harmonica with me to entertain around the campfire.
