No TV/cell/internet connection at the remote campground we were in. Not having a dvd meant just AM/FM radio for the week.
Now the dealer wants me to drag the trailer to the shop 25+ miles one way from home to verify its inoperative, only to order a new replacement stereo, then drag it back for them to replace it!
I think you will find that a lot of us on this forum would be happy with only 25+ miles.

Mine is 45 miles away. I left it at the dealer about 6 weeks ago to get warranty repairs approved, have the parts shipped, and have them installed. Now waiting on the parts and installation.

So just to confirm, my unit did infact arrive with the Furrion branded 39" TV and DV1200 A/V system. By the time I got to the dealer to see my new rig (the day after it arrived), they had taken the TV out of the box and mounted it. The DV1200 comes installed from the factory. I just did a quick walkthrough so I didn't tryout anything in the RV. I'll be going through it all at the PDI. I can't wait to try all this stuff out.

I feel the same way. No real complaints thus far so I will ride out the warranty period by simply adding a sound bar for now. Once the warranty expires, I plan to separate the interior and exterior completely. Automotive head unit and upgraded speakers for the outside tunes. Residential home theater component system for the inside.

I have a 23RLSW on order. Didn't get the TV's as an option. In my previous 36' class A I replaced the old boat anchor TV with a 32" Vizio from Costco and never had a problem with it for 4 years B4 I sold it.


It went many miles through the USA.


On my Jayco I will buy TV's from Costco that cost less and better quality. I also plan to buy a separate quality Blue Ray DVD player and hook it up directly to the 1080P TV with a HDMI cable. May only be able to use the TV speakers but that's OK. We'll see how everything is wired and maybe adapt the audio as necessary.


I'm not sure what stereo unit will be in my TT when it arrives, but I will use that for AM/FM radio and music CD's. Wireman

I ordered the 39" Furrion only because I read that the components inside the TV are weatherproof (corrosion resistant). In hindsight, I probably should have just got my own TV. Too late now! I haven't tried the Furrion TV yet, so I'm anxious to see the picture quality.

jloco, I'm sure it's a decent TV. I just figured I could get a better TV for less money on my own. Is the Furrion 720 or 1080P?


I don't plan on moving it from the inside to outside and back. Jayco wanted close to $487 for a 32" which is crazy. I'll take my chances, as I did with my class A MH.

IMHO,

The Furrion is garbage... and way over priced!

I sold TV's, and as far as I know the boards are all the same... they are all vibration proof, and all solid state devices don't like moisture. The old CRT sets generated enough heat to keep themselves dry.

Our experience with the Furrion was that it had very poor sound, an average picture, the channel search picked up and stored stations that were so weak that they couldn't be viewed, and the remote was small, difficult to use, and counter-intuitive.

We replaced it with a 32" 1080P Samsung smart TV for 199.00, and added a Samsung Smart Blu-Ray player for 59.00. Now we can connect the TV to WiFi and use the internet on it.

The CG has cable and wifi.. So viewing will be either cable, DVD or streaming. Sound will come from an external source.

The reviews I saw for the Furrion TV weren't too bad. Much better than the reviews of the Furrion A/V components. If I don't like the picture quality, I'll replace it.

Outdoor Speakers

Just got our 2016 Jayco 26BH home from the dealer which is 80 miles from my house! First trailer and am now sad thinking that they did not go over things with us as they should have.
We have the DV1200 and our speakers are only working inside and not outside. I tried to change the zones using the A B C buttons but nothing works
I emailed the dealer but no response.
Anyone else with this problem have a solution?
