Have you checked your fuses? There may be more than one fuse panel in your coach, or possibly an in-line fuse or two, so make sure you're checking them all.

We had a similar issue on our last trip. It seemed that the wiring harness has no support and the weight of it pulls on the connections. I am planning on supporting mine with wire ties but haven't gotten around to it yet. It acts up intermittently.


I can't seem to figure how to get sound from my Ipod. It connects ok and I can see and scroll through the songs but no audio. I have to check the ipod connection setup but the button is greyed out and I cannot click on it. I've tried everything I can find online.

See this thread....you may have a similar issue; radio wiring harness pulled too tight. Same thing happened to me. There have been several discussions with possible fixes.

Good luck!

Radio/nav

I did find that the harness was loose and a little wiggle it came to life, I ordered anew one with a longer one.

Thanks for all your ideas

Pat

Unfortunately, your radio will only work temporally. I am still trying to fix mine, the latest repair was to replace the toggle dash switch. Today we depart for 6 days we will see if this was my problem.
As the drama continues.

If you are connected over bluetooth, the volume on the device must be turned up, then you can control with the unit volume control.

I just recently upgraded my entire radio, speakers and auxiliary system in my 2010 Phaeton. I spent many hours wrapping wire sets in loom, labeling and then taping them up with the good ďTESS Tape(brand)Ē instead of that nasty vinyl mess they still use. I also added either zip-tie stand-off mounts or proper wire clamps so that it doesnít look like a rat nest under there.

One thing that I also did on the main plug going into the radio as well as other accessory connections, was to put a blob or two of hot-glue on either end and one on top to keep the connection solid. I did the same for the other connections like the external microphone, Sirrius module connector and then wrapped the antenna connector an video camera connections with Tess Tape because this is what it was designed for and is high-temp heat resistant. Itís a whopping $9.99 for 5 rolls of 1inch on Amazon for the Tess brand and they also have other widths and colors for different applications.
