I was wondering if anyone has had any trouble with these. I currently have one in my toyhauler and I,m having problems with it. It plays in the front and in the garage area of the 5th wheel but not in the main area. Speakers are good but I don,t know how to check anything else in the system. Help Thanks, Mike.

There has been a lot of posts about these poor quality units. Depending on how old it is, contact the manufacturer and they will probably supply you with a replacement unit under warrenty.

Thanks for the reply concerning my problem with concertone stereo system in my 2003 5th wheel. The main problem is there is no sound in the center area of the unit but I have sound at both ends. Sounds like a pretty common problem with these systems. I hope I can get some help from dealer, they have been pretty helpful in the past. Thanks again for your reply. Mike.

Good luck. I am on my fourth unit (the dealer has been replacing them even though we are out of warranty). The seem to lose sound out of some of the channels (like the center channel voice) or they lose sound to the front bedroom.

I noticed in the new Cedar Creeks they are going away from them to another manufacturer. I'll probably do that when the dealer stops replacing them.

Concertone is actually a wholly owned subsiduary of Forrest River. The phone number in the manual just rings to the main office. My unit is out of warranty so I decided to call anyway. I was told that if I removed my unit and mailed it to them they would replace it. When I removed it, I found a couple loose wires. I tightened them up and everything is working fine. With all the vibration and bumps these units get, it is probably common for them to get loose connections.

For those with dead or dying Concertone systems, you might want to check this out.

My buddy is going through this with his 2004 Rockwood. Found out the same thing as far as who is selling it. Also, Forest River does NOT repair these units. If it's new enough, they'll replace it. If it's a couple of years old, they'll sell you a new head unit for $500!

His Concertone stopped playing CD/DVDs. Being a EE, he took the unit out and opened it up. He basically said it was obviously meant to be disposable (junk).

He's been debating whether to shuck out $500 for another unit, or buy something better. Thanks for the link for the other unit, I've passed it on.

The Concertone in my new TT is quirky, but seems to work... mostly. Sometimes when changing channels, the audio will suddenly quit working. I turn it off/on, and it's fine again. Doesn't happen all the time. Keeps it up, I'll probably be asking for a replacement too.

Sure. Cant remember exactly how, but as I remember you need to run a pair of audio cables from the TV to the Concertone unit and select the correct input on the radio.

The Concertone unit we have not had trouble with, I hope it stays that way.

behind my tv there is a wall plate
with a series of labaled connectors
the set that says AV2
is plugged into my dish reciever, then select AUX on teh concertone and the sound will come thru the speakers in the ceiling
hope it helps
i also installed a small 2v cooling fan in the compartment behind my unit, it seems to help with heat after watching a long mvie with the grandkids

Hey all, having problems with my Concertone as well. 2008 Palomino SABRE 31REDS aka Forrest River. The piece of cr@p of a stereo. Plays DVD only half way thru and won't funnel the cable properly to the TV.
How do I get the facing off so that I may remove the unit and get behind it.
Thinking about bypassing the stereo for all video anyway. An auto-sensing switch from Radio Shack should do the trick.
Also any ideas on how to dismount the Olevia TV from the mount.
On a trip here and don't have access to any tech support.
Thanks
