Executive DVD Player, SUCKS!!!!!

I want to replace this crappy DVD player. Has anyone replaced theirs and if so, can you please tell me your new brand and where you purchased?

This cheapo DVD gets hot and stops playing in the middle of a GOOD movie. I got major problems when it will not play the movie RV at all. My DVD in the bedroom (Sony) plays with no problems and I purchased that on my own.

HELP!

I hope it really is the crappy DVD player and not a heat issue. We noticed that on our trip to AZ and UT last summer that due to the black front cap on the GT that all of our electronics mounted in the upper cabinets got hot. Although we didn't use the DVD player much under those conditions our satellite receiver did crump on us twice due to overheating. We have learned to keep those cabinet doors open for ventilation when using those devices in the summer time.

As for a new DVD player if yours is the surround sound one then you obviously need the same kind of thing to replace it with. I would start my search at Costco as they have a good return policy if you don't like it.

Thanks for the tip! I do keep the doors open to allow for ventilation and I added a little fridge fan up there to move the air around.

I will check out Costco for sure.

TKS.

We went through 3 of them before getting one that works reliably. 1st one did as you said but it was cold outside. Every movie at about the 50 minute mark would freeze up. Boat N RV installed a new one during servicing the coach. That one would not spin up and read the disc. Found this out after getting home. They shipped me another and I replaced that one only to find that the unit was no better than the original. They shipped another and that's the one we have had for almost 2 years now. It's the CONCERTONE of FR Motorhomes I guess. Eventually there's one out there that actually works.

Should I just take it back to Chesaco to replace since I am still under warranty?

Or
Should I call the company directly to get another one?

I like the unit because when it works you can play the radio through your surround sound.

I was dealing with Boat N RV at that time. I would call Chesaco and see if they will contact FR about the DVD Player. Otherwise I'd contact Mike Burns at FR about this, but I'm sure he'll tell you to go through Chesaco. Steve at Chesaco has been very helpful to me.

If it's still under warranty you'll need to contact your dealer and make arrangements. Boat N RV shipped my replacement to my home with a return label so I could send the dudd back to them and they handled it from there. If not still under warranty I would say the nearest trash can. Ours is still working fine at this time, probably just jinxed it, but when it goes I won't replace it with another unit from Executive or whoever makes it.

I just purchased a home entertainment system with an iPhone dock station from Walmart for $189 made by Phillips. I already have the surround speakers so I gave the new speakers to my daughter and the old player as well. The system works great and I am happy! The best part is I can now play my iPhone music through my system so I do not need xm radio yippy!!!!
