Model DNX695S. Itís a double DIN so it should fit many RVS.

Had a local shop install, but a DYI install is very doable. Shop did a super job on auxiliary jack to make for an easy phone connection right on the dash.
regarding the auxiliary jack...is the Kenwood Bluetooth enabled? so you can connect your phone directly to the Kenwood via Bluetooth?
We are still using the Axxera...but are thinking about replacing it...no real issues...other than the obvious one...when using the camera and turn signals!!
thanks

Yep Bluetooth enabled. By the way, essentially a drop-in with regards to cables and mounting.

The GPS on the Kenwood is independent of the cell phone service so it works well in the boonies where the phone won’t work.

We replaced our axxara with a radio that fit and had backup camera input, have not had a problem since. Had to do a bunch of wire splicing since wiring harness is not identical. In the dash the video feeds from the side cameras and back-up camera are fed into a multiplexer with one output that attaches to the back-up camera input on radio. Whenever there is a feed from any camera it switches onto the screen on dash. I can also select rear camera and see what is behind me as I drive (as in check the toad).

The radio would have been covered under warranty, but the service at the dealer we purchased the Axis from was so horrific, we felt it would be far less painful to buy and replace it ourselves.

I found a replacement on online at Crutchfield.com. We purchased a newer model and had it installed by a local RV repair shop.

Here's the link:

Hope this helps.
Hi, did you replace your radio with another Axxera brand or change brands all together. My warranty just expired last month so I will have to pay for it myself as well.
