Update: Turned battery off and removed fuse from radio. I put a new fuse in the panel. Turned the battery on and fuse on panel did not blow. I tried putting the fuse back in on back of the radio. I got a spark and fuse blew. Looks like the problem is the radio!

When not connected to 12V my radio turns itself off and stays off even when reconnected to 12V. If your radio blew a fuse while not even turning it on, it sounds like you have a grounded wire issue somewhere and it may not be the radio... Did the radio ever work?

Electrical short

The radio has always worked. All of this happened when I turned the battery on and the light on the circuit panel was on in the radio slot.

Sometimes electronics are covered for 90 days only, unlike the coach for a year or more. Depending on your situ the dealer should change it or if not an electronic rep could find it quickly because it's a dead short.

calling dealer

I looked in the IRV book that came with the paperwork and it has a 2 year warranty on it. The warranty for the 21FBRS is 1 year bumper to bumper. I called the RV dealership and talked to the service department. I explained to him what was going on and he set me up with an appointment to replace the radio. He said it will be covered under warranty. He asked which model of radio was in the rig. He told me that there has been a lot of issues with the IRV33 radio containing dead shorts. He said they would inspect all the wires as well to the radio. The dealership can't get me in for two weeks but I am fine with that since we are done camping for the season after the weekend. Thanks so much for all your help!

Didn't your dealer tell you about the optional 2nd year FR factory warranty for only $150?
There are tons of threads on the Forum about it.

Good deal, you earned it by trouble shooting.
