Any radio head unit will work as a replacement. There are better alternatives out there designed for automobiles that'll work well in this application and be a big improvement. They'll not only work reliably, but will have more features, sound better, and be less expensive than the Jensen radio.
Only downside to replacing with an auto head unit is they won't include zone functions that the RV head units will provide. You'll only get sound on the speakers inside the coach, or the outside of the coach, or both, depending how you decide to wire them up.
I opted to replace the garbage Driven multi-media head unit in my 37FLH with a Furrion Ethos 260W 3-Zone Entertainment System over a standard automobile head unit because of the speaker zones. It wasn't the cheapest option out there, but it works reliably and sounds so much better than the junk the factory installed.
