Can I trouble you to either send it to me or tell me where I can find it to download?

Thank you!

Maybe this should go in another thread, but Peter you mention the cheapness of AS, and I agree, but what are the aftermarket choices for a radio that are best for the trailer?

Travelin Man, yep, m303, is junk. I leave my face on, should leave door open and hope someone steals the darn thing!

The Audio etc. forum has some threads on that, as I recall:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f450/

A good replacement radio would involve a number of variables, including location/space in each trailer, functions to be included, and sync issues with other items like TV, BlueRay player etc..

Search for "radio replacement upgrade" shows some promising leads here:

https://www.google.com/search?q=radi....0.awgaN63oF6Y

For now, we are happy with a KISS solution -- remove the faceplate!



We also bring along a standard old radio which runs on 6 D batteries -- a GE Super Radio which has lasted through many job site accidents, and has fairly good reception. I like the redundancy of the D cells and stand-alone radio.

Next may be a Sony international short-wave radio, or a Milwaukee unit that takes the M12 batteries we have been gearing up for in our portable tool quiver:

I will post a query about this on the Lithium Tool thread:

Thanks Peter,

Advanced RV units use a brand called JL Audio, very pricy, but boast the best and cleanest sound. Likely cost $3k for everything you need as you buy everything as components, source unit, amp, speakers, remote, etc...

Thank you everybody on the subwoofer disconnect question. I have a 2016 25ft FC with a Clarion radio. I am guess there is no subwoofer parasitic draw, I've disconnected various non-speaker wire wires and saw no differance.

ID:	295564 I finally got around to installing my battery disconnect switch. It's not to spec yet but will work on it when I have more time including upgrading to 1/0 gauge wires. The one thing that needs to change is that I have the main positive cable sandwiched between one of the batteries and the battery bolt which is threaded and will likely chafe. It's in storage for a few months so I have time.
