Finally connected with Todd. That was a no fuss process- they're replacing the radio out after just a phone call. He's going to ship it next week so that it catches me in Anaheim, CA.

Yep. Everything of ours gets shipped to a campground somewhere. Well, we are having a letter sent to General Delivery at the local post office; but that's a first for us.

Sounds like the standard audio cut-out issue with the iRV-66.
Their fix is to feed a constant noise signal into the DSP, to stop the amp turning off at low volume, which works fine, apart from now the equalizer display constantly flickers, not displaying real levels (display only stops flickering if you turn volume to 0).

They were fairly prompt at sending out a replacement unit, ahead of me returning my old one.
I'd be interested to hear if your replacement unit has the constantly flickering equalizer display like mine (and most other replacements for this issue), or if they've now solved the issue properly.

Yep, when I described the problem - he said it was a known and unfortunate issue. (I still don't understand how there isn't proactive outreach to owners to address this sort of thing; but that's neither here nor there.)

He did say that since then, they've gone through 3 software and 2 hardware revisions and the new radios are working well. I'll look for the equalizer display thing and will post back in a couple of weeks (my timing, not his).

I will also give credit- he was very good about calling me back (unknowingly, I kept calling him after his business hours) and was very amenable to helping get it shipped to me on my schedule. He's holding it until 12/2 before he sends it because I'll be in-transit between a move to a RV repair shop, hotel, and finally another campground.

JoyRider sent me to buy/order them from Hendersons, 800-245-8309. They had them for $250 per kit (aka per 3" axle). Shipping from Oregon to southern California was only about $40.

I'm having the work done by Redlands Truck and RV.
