Personally the FR3 is a total basket case hunk of junk. I need Forest River to step up and but this thing back from me. The dealers won't even work on em. I feel a letter to the BBB and highway safety board in strongly in order.

I assume you've contacted a class action lawyer ... what did they say?

I have never owned such a hunk of crap as the FR3. This is not my 1st motor home, it's my 3rd so this isn't my 1st dance. All I know is I'm totally afraid to even use this pile. Zero trust in it.
Sounds to me that you need to look into claiming it under the lemon law.

I'm just curious. This is a forum dedicated to the FR3 motorhome. Why do so many people post questions related to other brands of motorhome, or even non-motorhomes? I see it happen frequently, and it always mystifies me.

My bad, in all honesty, I didn't read through the first 327 pages to see that it was for motorhomes only, but you know glad I could "mystify" you....

One reason is because on the computer, you have to scroll to the very top to know which sub forum you are on. Reading on my phone, I have NO clue.

Those DVD systems are notorious for having issues. We bought our FR3 in October and just had to have the unit replaced. Until you can get it looked at try this, it worked periodically for us. Power down the entire coach and shut off the master switch. Wait 5-10 minutes and power everything back up. Sometimes this worked for us. Our system was very temperamental and would randomly turn off and on and sometimes all the cameras would just start cycling on and off.
