iRV Technologies POS

I have a 2021 Rockwood Ultra Lite with this radio/DVD player in it, what is a good replacement for this POS, never seems to work properly with DVD's and lags quite a bit.

looking for a radio that can handle 3 zone speakers.

I took ALOT of time searching for a replacement to the Driven DR3200BT that was in our rig. I eventually settled on and installed a Furrion Ethos 3-zone 260Watt Entertainment System (DV1230-BL). What a major difference. Every function on the Furrion head unit worked well and their downloadable phone app worked great. The sound was the biggest difference and now sounds so much better. One nice benefit with this unit is I can add a third set of speakers to the bedroom in our 5'er if I want and connect to the one zone not currently wired.

The Furrion system was wider than the unit that came from the factory, but the same height. I simply cut away a few inches of the cabinetry it was installed in with an oscillating tool. Once installed and mounted, it looks like it came from the factory that way.

I know many have negative comments about some Furrion products and it's definitely warranted. But, this head unit is much better than any other one on the market for an RV I've seen and heard to date.

Have another look....I'm telling you, I have this unit with zone 1 wired for my living room speakers, and zone 2 wired to my outside speakers.....still have another set of wires coming out the back for another zone....in fact, the head unit has zone 1 thru 3 from which to choose on the display and the manual provides instructions on how to connect the three zones.

Should of added this along with my last post. Below is a link to the Furrion Ethos manual. If you look on page 10, they provide you with the socket harness's color coded wiring for all three speaker zones.

You are so right. What a POS these things are- iRV Technologies. I have the same brand. And mine has 3 zones. BUT- give them a call. They have the best customer service of just about anybody I've ever dealt with. Who knows, they might be able to work something out.
