I did post on the heartland site.
Can you tell me where the fuse is? How did you access it? Just curious because I couldn't locate it.

Sorry to hear about your issue with his unit. I ended up pulling the unit and simply disconnecting all 3 of the wiring harnesses. I was told this would reset the unit, but it didn't. Ultimately, we brought it back to the dealership and they replaced it with a new one. The new one is a little different and so far is working perfectly. Keeping my fingers crossed as these systems seem very unreliable. Good luck!

Try to reset your system, page 31 in the manual;

FACTORY DEFAULT RESTART
Press and hold FUNCTION button for 10 seconds - Unit will shut
off. Restart unit by pressing the ON button. Factory defaults will
be reset with this type of restart.

Tried this too, didn't work. Thanks for trying though.

Are you having the same problem after plugging in something into the USB port? If so I would also try plugging in a thumb drive into it. Something smaller than 2 gb with a mp3 song on it. It may be stuck looking for a drive it can read. Just a thought.

Here is a quote from Herk(Lou) from another thread...

"Important!

There is a size and format limit on the USB and SD chip ports for showing photos, videos or music (MP3). The chip/USB stick format MUST be in FAT32 or FAT (NOT Windows NTFS or other proprietary operating system like some cameras have). Also some sound systems have a 500 meg limit others have an 8 GIG limit on chip size.

Try a small size SD chip or memory stick."

Yes this occurred after use of USB port. After drive home it went off, turned it back on at home just to check to see if it reset itself but it is still stuck. I don't own a thumb drive smaller than 2g. (hard to find that small these days isn't it?) it won't reset back to factory settings with the instructions in the manual, it is just stuck. I will try to find a small thumb drive and try though. Anything to not have to take it in to service center but I may have to...

It's just stuck now I can't get anything to work on the unit. I was hoping there was a fuse to pull and that would help reset it but don't know where the fuse would be, possibly in the wall? This seems like a big piece of junk installed in my new TT. Does everyone have this unit or do they upgrade?

I don't have access to my TT now. I would look and I assume you have, in the fuse compartment. It is 12volt so look at the fuses not the breakers. If not there, I have also heard that there may be some fuses behind the power center. If you pull that, I would disconnect all power to the camper. 120 volt (shore power) and 12 volt (disconnect the battery).

I just got off the phone with my dealer. My THIRD GT-3.0 has been ordered. (Still under warranty, thankfully).
This time the POS developed a mind of it's own; on/off button won't work, but the remote does! The speakers sometimes turn off & on as I change radio stations! Oh yeah, and while adjusting the volume, it will sometimes switch to CD mode!. I did the reset thing with the function (mode) button, it didn't make a difference.
The dealer told me they are replacing these radios on a regular basis.

I do have a theory about this. This second radio was working OK until I brought the TT in for some service recently. When I picked it up, the battery was nearly dead! I had to plug into my TV in order to use the tongue jack. This is not a good situation for electronic devices of any type. Any thoughts?

Also, just curious, has anyone had any feedback from Forrest River or whoever makes these radios?
