Sound for movies

Okay here's my problem I have a 2015 Jayco precept 35 un I lost the radio which was a Jensen with the nav system I had a service contract on it so the company paid for a new head unit which was a Kenwood with a nav system on both units when you play the movies in the coach the video plays no problem on two of the televisions but no sound the sound comes out of the overhead speakers I suspect someone disconnected the red and white sound jacks somewhere in the coach so when you play av all you get is video and no sound
The old one never worked either it work the same way when you play the movie it came out the overhead speakers and the connectors didn't work in the TVs anyone had any experience with this I believe in my old RV I saw a distribution box somewhere under the sink

I didn't care for the through the overhead speakers although better the an the tv speakers. So I add a yamaha sound bar and mounted on top of the valence. Perfect sound for movies.

We went with the Bose self amplified pc stereo speakers. But originally I lost one channel overhead speaker. Wire on back of the TV fell out. Put on a strain relief fixed thAt. Then lost one channel again. The overhead speaker wire fell off. Jayco used the wrong female terminals so I just recrimped then and it was ok. Then lost left channel. I traced wire from the tv to the Jensen and found the wire open so I suspect it was smashed or cut somewhere probably with slide going in and out. Couldn't find and went to Bose speakers.

The sound bar is an excellent idea also.

I found our Televator was crushing the AV cables when going down. I took the cabinet apart and dressed and secured all the cables so there was no interference with the televator mechanism. While under there I noticed all the coax cables had loose connections so I tightened them all.

Sound bar is the best way to go. Mine also has built in blue tooth so I can play my music through it as well. Sounds much better than the factory in ceiling speakers.
