Not sure if anybody can help, but I thought I'd ask.


Our new 2006 class C MH (Ford E450SD Chassis) came with a Clarion radio/cd instead of a factory Ford unit. I would like to replace it with a Ford 6CD unit, but I don't know what model # I would need. I called Ford and they told me to call my local Ford dealer, but they were no help. Anybody have an idea how I can find out what I need?

If Ford runs true to form, they will be sky high on the unit. Try going with an after market unit from a good mobile audio store. They may even have a Ford unit they pulled to put in a better unit.

TXiceman, I've been looking on ebay for a good used one, but I need to know the model # before I buy anything. But Ford or their dealers can't tell me what that would be. If I can't find a Ford 6 cd changer, I'll just stick with the Clarion.

Thanks for the help.

It should be the same one that is used in the E250 and E350 Ford vans.

I think you may be right, but I'm having a hard time finding out what that is.

Ok, I solved my problem. Just for the heck of it I pulled the radio from my Ford Ranger to see if it would work in the MH. What do you know? It had the same connector as the MH. I hooked it up, and it worked fine. So I left it in the MH and put the Clarion in my truck. I have Sirius Sat. radio in the truck, so I very rarely use the CD player anyway. So it works out fine.

I replaced mine with an Alpine cd deck in July and couldn't be happier. Better sound and better features.
