To add to this I was working in an air conditioned garage to rule out if the heat was causing the problem. I checked everything by using another amp that I had and it works without issue.

    Does anyone have further advise about possible fixes to the amp? I hate to throw it away with it being 6 months old and used for about 20 hours at most. I have always had great luck with kicker amps and I am replacing this amp with an identical kicker marine amp. Initially I noticed some popping from the speakers and the amp cutting in and out for 5-10 second periods at a minimal volume while unloading off the trailer. The popping and turning on and off was not affected by volume. I disconnected the amp while on the water that day. After I got home and started trouble shooting, the amp eventually stayed in protect mode. What could have gone wrong? Does it sound like a potential warranty claim?
    To me if the amp is only 6 months old and was bought new from an authorized dealer then absolutely it is a warranty issue. Call 800 256 0808 and ask for Customer Service. They will give you an RMA number and you can send it in with a copy of your sales receipt to be fixed. They will be very happy to help you!

    They share a common ground post. I did try to disconnect RCAs and didn't change anything. It is an amp I bought to power my two rev 8 tower speakers that replaced the stock roswell speakers and kicker 250 stock amp.
