Stereo Replacement - Advice Needed

Well...the Touch Audio system installed in our 19RR is biting the dust a little bit at a time. To call it an audio system is a big stretch, especially given it NEVER held the pre-sets and now is starting to flip between speakers, channels, etc. Throw in the NOAA Alert that comes on arbitrarily.
SO - That said - we're movin on up...
What's everyone's experience with replacements. Jensen has some nice stuff out there but I've heard good and bad about all of them.
My question: Who's replaced the Touch Audio System and what did you replace it with.
How do you like it and does your new system make you the hit or the scourge of the campground?

Thanks in Advance

We replaced our touch audio with another one under warranty....twice. Then sold the trailer. I think the Jensens are good units. Just look at best buy, or crutchfield.com and see what large din DVD units are available. I have a concertone in my Sabre and really like it so far.

I don't like mine much either and it did all the same things you described. I want to trade in too. If you disconnect the battery and unplug from shore for a bit it resolves it (or it did for me). Maybe that will help you short term.

Just be careful when shopping crutchfield and best buy if you are looking for a same size unit. There is a big difference size wise between an in-wall RV stereo (what Jensen makes) and a double din headunit you'd find online at Crutchfield and Best Buy. If you have the skills to fabricate a mount or patch the hole in your wall/cabinet, then you are good to go either way. You can view and purchase all of the Jensen products from our store at costore.com/forestriver

Sooooooo...pulled the trailer out of the cave and hauled it down to the Lake and just for kicks, clicked on the old (Touch Audio) stereo. APPARENTLY, having the trailer go totally dry on power resets the whole dang show. Worked fine, displayed the station properly and worked fine. Really. So we'll watch it this season to see how badly it degrades. If it keeps degrading, we'll replace it. If not, we'll at least upgrade the speakers inside and out. Whaddaya know about that.

Music in unit

Would like to have music in the unit. Any wiring suggestions?? It doesn't seem right to have to have the cab stereo on for music. Even my pop-up had a stereo CD player in the unit! Right now, I've got my Zune in a speaker dock placed in the shelf above the door, but would like to wire something into the unit speakers. Help please!

Another issue - I recently looked at some friend's Winnebagos and noticed that they had much more substantial entry doors. Does anyone know where these can be purchased?

Told ya!

Install a battery cut off switch on your trailer (if not already) and anytime it happens again unplug from shore and disconnect the battery for a minute.
