Radio upgrade?

2011 W&P30 with a Jensen 8035. Looking to upgrade the radio. Need a radio that's Bluetooth compatible.

I tried calling Jensen but of course no one returned my call.

I know I can get any old radio but I'm looking for something that's plug & play. (uses same wiring harness without modifying)

I have not yet removed the current radio to see what I'm dealing with. Anyone ever do this?
Thanks

ps. I live in my W&P and I'm totally off grid. Pics here: k4kmg.com if anyones interested.

I can't help you a bit with the radio but thanks for posting the link. Really like the camp set up you have. Might have to pay you a visit next year when I am attending bikeweek.

Good idea but the input on the radio is AV not AUX. Go figure!

I'm going to pull the unit today and see if I can easily replace with another radio.

I am annoyed with ours too. The brand new 2016 28UCR doesn't even have bluetooth. It came with a Furrion DV5700. I plan on upgrading it too but need to find a reasonable unit that has AV out for the TV DVD function.

Also need to figure out a way to integrate this: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-LQ5K8q8...Onyx-Plus.html

Does your tv have a USB port? That's how I watch movies and such. Just dump movie/TV shows onto the thumb drive and plug into back of TV.

Update: JVC Digital Media Receiver (KD-X320BTS) (doesn't look like it has AV though) Got it on Amazon for 75 bucks. Bluetooth/Sirius/Pandora/iheart/iPod/iPhone/Android compatible! Fit in the existing mount, just had to rewire the plug. VERY easy. All wires were the same color. Took me about 15 minutes. Have 40 gigs of music on my tablet that I'm listening to now via BT. I'm Happy!

So when the BIG storms hit FL, do you just hook up the house and boogie out of state?

No longer practical to do that. Too attached to the solar/100# propane/septic/etc... Just have to 'hunker down' and hope for the best!

I was thinking of changing our radio also. Some things so I can get my back-up cam together?

My TV is a Furrion with a USB port, but I haven't tried to use the media function yet. I figured I would just use my laptop hooked to the TV to play movies from there but it would be nice to have an option to play DVDs from the head unit as well if I didn't want to run the laptop.

Like everyone else said, very nice setup you have there. I just went and checked out the site myself.
