2015 8289WS USB Chargers Not Working??
 
Has anyone had issues with the USB charges in the bedroom not working. I don't see any blown fuses, and I haven't found any info in the forums for the Rockwood 8289ws..

Sorry but that must have been added to the newer units, mine is a 2012 and have never seen a USB charger in the bedroom, Where is this located in the room? Maybe I have missed it in mine and do have one. TIA..Glenn

Its at the head of the bed above the end table street side, works great so far. I did cover the blue light with black electrical tape.

Thanks Fonzie...I will see if I can find a replacement. I was hoping it was just a fuse I didn't know about...

Without pounding on Forest River once again, I find that with the built in USB charger not being used, the FM radio almost fairly well. With anything plugged in, the radio just buzzes. Go and buy a good AC USB adapter.

Interesting!!! I've never used the FM radio, but I will investigate that now.

Our trailer has a combination 12 and dual USB outlet. second trip we were charging an iPhone and a Kindle and the USB part smoked and quit working. Rather than make a 200 mile round trip to the dealer for a warranty claim I checked online and found someone in Malaysia who sells the USB part for around $5 with free shipping. Awaiting delivery any day now. We'll see if this one holds up better.

Good luck!! Let me know how it works out. I ordered the one from Amazon for 12bucks...I'm hoping it plug n play and I don't have to make it fit...

Yeah. I'm hoping the diameter is the same as the dead outlet so it will fit the hole in the combo plate. Mine is via Amazon, also. The whole combination outlet lists for about $28 in the RV catalog the dealer included with our manuals, etc.
