I would disagree. I think the statement
A full two-year warranty is included on the completed Escape trailer.
means, or should mean, that there is a full 2 year bumper to bumper warranty. This should mean that if a manufacturer of an accessory product fails to honor their warranty, Escape's 2 year warranty will apply.

Too cold to go out to the trailer to get my manual, but I believe that it says that there is a two-year warranty on the trailer and that the appliances are covered by the manufacturers' warranties.
When my furnace needed repair and was within warranty, I took it down to my local RV shop ( five minute drive ) and as an authorized service centre, it was fixed, for free.
But, there is no point discussing what we don't know. Since you are going to Escape anyway, they may be able to solve your problem by showing you how to eject the CD, or they may replace the unit, or help you to get if fixed by the manufacturer.
What we do know, is that Escape will make it right.

I am working on my build sheet and gleaning info from the forum. I was thinking of a portable sound system/BT/iPhone compatible such as a Bose, but the weather radio capability seems very important. Does anyone have something like this? It would serve the weather needs, but not the music.

This is the one I have installed in my last 3 campers, You can get it with or without speakers but you will need an internal antenna which can be bought from Jensen. This model is blue tooth, I purchased a blue tooth speaker to eliminate wires. It is dc powered and will announce weather alerts with the SAME process other weather radios use. iPod compatible and am/fm.

Jim - that Jensen looks good, but my significant other is a weather geek. I am thinking that the weather station with portable unit (she will love, love, love that) and alerts with a separate portable music system might be the ticket for us. We like some of the Bose portable units - taking tunes outside will be key!

This is the radio we purchased and shipped to Escape for Reace to install during the build.
It is a Jensen JHD910BT with am, fm, weather band, and bluetooth broadcast capability. So far has worked well for us.

how does an iPhone or iPod attach? Specs say front and rear hook ups, but I can't see them in the picture. So with the BT you link to external speakers right?

An external device would connect through a jack on the front of the radio (has a rubber cover in the bottom front right hand corner of the device). The bluetooth is for broadcasting from the device, and would work with bluetooth headphones or a bluetooth speaker. There are conventional speaker and antennae jacks in the back similar to those that would be present on any automotive radio. Reace installed a hidden antenna in the walls of our 19' for use with this radio, and four speakers, 2 in front and 2 in back areas of our 19'.

This radio is a weather radio (w/b) means weather band and will turn on automatically if there is an alert in your area. You do realize that the weather tv channel is the equivalent of MTV for people over 50!!
I leave my weather radio on continuously sometimes when alone, it's like company?

Jim- I do understand that and that my partner will love, love, love having a little screen to look at the weather outside the trailer before the door is opened! Our house has no less than 6 little weather monitoring devices in it! The weather station also includes the weather radio alerts, so we won't miss any big weather events!! I am happy to open the door and stick my head out to determine the weather…. but both of us need to be happy in the trailer!
