Radio too loud

I received my replacement unit today from Nelson at Patrick and installed it. I'm happy to report that it works perfectly and I can't express enough how well I was treated by everyone involved. My dealer tried first and then I was able to talk directly with Patrick. Also originally I had left a message with Rockwood and received a return call promptly.

I talked to Todd Eash, Patrick Ind. and he shipped me a new radio. I installed it today. The sound on the AM-FM radio is great now. Full volume control from 1 and up. The CD’s and SD card volume is better but even at a level of 1 it’s fairly loud. Overall this is much better.

Same Problem with my 2015 8329ss

Picked up my TT in February and I love it! I am having the same problem with the entertainment system as many who have posted here. Sound cuts in and out in the mid ranges. Has anyone gotten any resolution with Forest River? These post are going back a while, I would have assumed they would have a fix by now. My dealer has never heard of this problem before???

Forest River radios

the problem is they're wired wrong polarities are backwards causing all kinds of problems burning out channels..volume problems..check polarity to speakers...positive to positive...negative to negative

We got a replacement iRV 66 from our dealer on Friday and installed it yesterday. The box said that it had been pre-tested. The volume control worked perfectly on both the wall unit and on the remote. So, it seems that the volume problem may finally have been solved.

Picked up my new 2016 2703ws yesterday and the irv 66 that came with my unit still has the loud volume 1 - 7 issue. Guess I'll have to make a call to my dealer.

Radio Issues irv 66

Wanted to add my experience so far with the volume level issue on the 66. 2016 8280ws picked up the last weekend in April and noticed on our maiden voyage the volume issue and ran across this extensive thread. Contacted dealer last week and haven't heard any sort of update from them on the resolution of fixing this issue. Called Nelson at Patrick and left a message and he promptly returned my call within 15 minutes and the new radio is being UPS'd to me with return label. Hopefully will have in a couple of days and I'll update this thread. Very, very pleased with Patrick's response to my (our) issue.
