IRV33 Clock accuracy

Has anyone with the IRV33 receiver noticed if their clock is keeping accurate time? Ours appears to drift at least several minutes per hour.

After a week, the clock is out over an hour.

Getting ready to submit a warranty claim on this....

Correction, it's the IRV68...

iRV 68 gains time!!

We bought our Rockwood Fifth Wheel last August, 2017. It came with a iRV 68 which gains at least 5 minutes a day. So in 3 days time, the clock is off by a half hour. Twice the radio came on by itself! Our dealer ordered a new unit which was installed, and it does the same thing! Did you find a solution to your problems with the iRV 68? Thanks in advance for sharing!

Nope, the replacement unit advances time each day too. Not as much as the original unit but still a significant amount over time. We just bought a wall clock instead and try to ignore the radio's clock

We have an iRV 34 in our 2017 Microlite 25KS. The clock mode on it is as inaccurate as your iRV 68. Our unit gains time at a rate of about 1 min per hour. We bought a cheap Walmart battery analog clock. It works well.

iRV 68 radio gains time!!

That is just crazy!! Have any of you had your radio come on by itself? Our dealer is ordering a third replacement radio for us. I'm not holding my breath after hearing other people are having exactly the same problem with iRV.

I've decided that the clock feature is worthless. It would be more accurate if it stopped running...

Good luck on that!!! You'd do better with a SUN DIAL.

We have 2 IRV radios in our Windjammer bunkhouse. Both of them do not keep accurate time. Other than that, they seem to work fine. Luckily, the microwave clock works well.

FWIW I've put 3 iRV66 in this TT and it works sort of OK...

But, my wall clock keeps time!

At some point, after my other mods and axle upgrade, I may replace the iRV radio with one of these....

Pretty pricey. I would consider it if it also played Blu-Rays.

I
have a 2018 Rockwood 2606WS and my iRV wall radio (about 16" x 4") works fine but the clock is useless! Gains about 1hr in 4 days. Digital clocks are VERY BASIC features...come on Forest River!

My husband says the same thing....digital clocks are basic. We are waiting for our 4th clock replacement to see if we can get one that keeps time! I'm not holding my breath. Are you listening Forest River?!!
