Furrion Radio Comes On Automatically


Recommended Posts

Our radio comes on automatically and sporadically without the power button being pushed.  Anyone else have this happen to them and, if so, what was the fix?  I think I'd be happy disabling it completely until we actually use it which is rarely.

That's a new feature. The radio uses a combination of microphones and motion sensors, interpreted by A.I., to determine your mood. Based on that evaluation, it automatically picks the appropriate genre of music for your mood (based on an analysis of your past music selections and Google searches related to songs and artists) and powers up. Future revisions will also feature integrated mood lighting along with the audio. To stop the music, remain perfectly quiet and still while breathing slowly and twitching your eyes to simulate REM sleep. This will signal the A.I. to terminate the music. NOTE: Swearing and gesticulating energetically in the direction of the radio will only serve to switch the music to Kenny G. or a similar genre, so caution is advised.

Or, it's broken. Good luck either way.

I see you have a 2021. Is the radio still under warranty? Even if you're just barely out of the warranty period, Furrion might still honor it if you contact them.

Our 2008 has a main switch by the door for our Jensen stereo. If you have such a switch, power it off unless you're actually using the system, until you figure it out. At least you'll sleep uninterrupted by Kenny G.

Does the furrion have a remote?

Yes, it has a remote.  Were you asking just so I wouldn't have to get up to turn it off or should I be looking for something on the remote that might help?

see if the alarm function is activated..

Can you help me a little more with this Carnivore?  I don't use the radio often and I am unfamiliar with the alarm function.  Thanks...

Well, just wondering if the remote falls down somewhere sometimes, if it might turn the radio on? 

I think carnivore is likely on the right track. Especially if it turns on at the same time each night.

I'm embarrassed to admit it but mine would mysteriously come on in the middle of the night too.

I figured it out in the middle of the third night of ownership that it even had an alarm clock function. 

I didn't intentionally set it but it blasted out some wrap song @ 03:17 at full volume. I didn't wake up happy. 

I don't remember what I did but I found the answer in in the manual.

Whenever I'm inside someone else's trailer, I try to quickly set the alarm on their radio to go of at 0300 hours. Just for poops and giggles.  😉

When the current run of Oliver trailers entered production in late 2013, they decided to do away with the Blue Sea Systems WeatherDeck Panel. The only effective way to completely kill power to anything now is to pull its fuse.

Here's a Furrion-related kudos-to-the-Oliver-support-team post.   Our radio began swallowing disks. It would not eject disks, but would instead read "Load."  That's how two disks ended up in the radio (I forgot that there was already another one in there from a previous trip).  I removed the radio, removed the disks, and tried again to eject a single CD, to no avail.  Ok, so time to call support (the radio was still within the 1-year warranty period).  Furrion has a technical support number, which I called, and heard a message to the effect of "due to overwhelming number of calls, we ask that you submit all requests by email."  So I dutifully filled out the long support-request form, submitted it, and ... received ...  absolutely no response.  One day goes by, then one week, then two weeks.  No response.  I reached out to Mike Sharpe, who said he would try to reach Furrion through his contacts.  After another week ... no response from Furrion.  So Mike offered to send a new radio from Oliver's stock.  Ryder Cogdill sent one pronto, I installed it, and returned the defective one (Oliver even paid return shipping).  I'm happy to report that the new radio works great.

So the point of this post is that, in my experience, Furrier's technical support is non-existent, but Oliver came through with flying colors!

Thanks for your post Fritz.  I have submitted a ticket and hope to have a similar experience with Oliver's support team.  I suspect any call or emails directly to Furrion will go straight into the same black hole that your correspondence did.

I had just about the same experience with Oliver Service as our radio not not playing CD’s. Fortunately it still did eject the CD.

Contacted Oliver as we were still under our 1 barely under our year warranty. Jason sent out a new old stock radio which I installed. I sent the old one back pre paid shipping and the new one works as it should. Out of warranty it would have been spendy to replace. The quality of the Furion radio is ok, I think a higher quality radio for what one pays for an Oliver should come standard.
