I'm sure that FR is no different than the other Manufacturers when looking for appliances. Whoever can provide the best price line gets the contract for a season, maybe less. Our 2007 Georgetown 370TS came with a 32" Westinghouse HDTV up front, great picture and no problems. A 20" Sanyo analog TV, same thing great picture but no longer usable by outside antenna without a box. Sharp Carousel Microwave, really nice, no problems and Magic Chef Stove, Dometic Refrig and the other standard dometic products. And then there's the EXECUTIVE HTS-1000 Home Theatre System. Our current unit has been fine, but it took 3 units to get to this one.
I believe they went to Olevea or something close to that and Toshiba TV, had problems and started replacing those. It just appears that once they get a product that's reliable they don't stay with it more than a season based on cost.
That's big business these days. Quantity (best price) vs. Quality (performance) I think we all know who wins!!
Can you say CONCERTONE, I thought you could!!!!!
