Help with TV

I know this probably has been beaten to death but I can't seem to find an answer that works.
The sound from my TV in my 2017 28RLS is the pits. However, the sound from my radio is impressive, it plays through speakers throughout the trailer and even outside.
I would love to get my TV to play through the speakers. I have read the manuals for both the radio and TV, if it is in there, I am sorry, I missed it.
Is there a jack on the back of the TV that I can use to connect to the radio so this happens? Do I need to visit Radio Shack or the like to buy a special cable? If so, what am I to ask for?
I really don't want to take the radio out of the Jayco to access any 'ports on the back if I can avoid it. However, if this is what needs to be done, I'll tackle it just tell me the connecting cords I need.
Thanks,
Ron

The Furrion TV in my 2017 has a headphone jack located just above the standard RCA connections on the rear side. The Axxera radio has an aux input on the front. I connect the 2 with a standard 3.5mm cable such as this....

Works great. If you have a similar setup, it should work for you also.

If your TV has red and white audio output jacks on the back you can get a cord like this that you can plug into the back of your TV and into the aux input jack on the front of your stereo.

Sound quality is somewhat subjective. That said the sound out of my Furrion TV in our 2018 28RLS is pretty good. Maybe something in the audio settings on the TV needs to be adjusted.

You can get a speaker out to Bluetooth adapter for your television and Bluetooth it to your stereo. If your stereo has a Bluetooth function. I have also seen fm transmitters that you can plug the tv into. Then it transmits a signal that you trailer fm stereo can pickup and amplify

It's just a matter of turning your sound off on the TV and enabling the sound through your entertainment system via the settings... Hopefully. Good luck.

Can you put a CD/DVD in the radio?

I had a similar situation. My trailer was already at the dealer getting other work done. When I asked about playing the tele thru the radio (RV speakers) they went to Best Buy to buy a “special cord” that cost me around $65 (American) and said they would do labor for free. So according to my dealer service dept I was only charged for Best Buy part.
Sorry I don’t know which cord they used but I don’t think I was HDMI?

I have a furrion radio/dvd player right above my TV. The audio was already connected between the two. Just needed to change the source on the radio the TV, I think it was AUX. took me a bit to figure it out.

I removed the Furrion radio once, it had 4 screws and pulled right out and had a bunch of slack in all the wires. Easy job.

Thanks, but so far that cable is not working for me, is there a setting on the radio/stereo I should be using?
