2014 LSV Rockford Head Unit replacement


Recommended Posts

Stereo Head Unit question. I have a 2014 23LSV I bought the end of last year. The stock Rockford Head Unit (RFX-MR5BB) got condensation behind the glass and apparently very wet while waiting for service at the dealer last week. It now appears to be stuck on AM radio with no way to change channels from the head unit of the center "Media Controls" on the center display. I believe mine is a fairly stock setup with 3 Rockford amps, sub, tower speakers, etc. I am fine with the sound output so don't need to spend thousands on a wet sounds solution for better audio, but I would like a head unit that works and preferably better than the one I have as I've always had bluetooth issues with it and the rear transom control is a bit finicky and appears to change stations when any drop of water gets near it. Would prefer something that talks to the central display like the Rockford does but not even sure it that is possible. Another nice to have is transom control, but again, not a necessity. Any recommendations on what to do hear that doesn't break the bank. Thanks in advance.

I am just curious if you ever found a solution for this.  I am looking to possibly upgrade the Head unit and Transom unit in my 2013 23 LSV, tried of the same issue of anything that touches the transom remote either turns it off or changes inputs.  Thanks in advance.
