You are just a year early. My new 2015 Jayco has the Bluetooth built in.

By the way you can put your music on a USB stick and it will play it from that.

I just used a straight cord from headphone jack on iPhone 5s to aux in on my 2014 x23f and put my input to aux in...worked perfectly.

We used the 3.5mm headphone jack and the aux connection on the Jensen. Worked, didn't have any "iControls" unless I stood next to the stereo, so that sucked.

I finally got fed up, bought another "Jambox" to keep in the TT. Should have done this from the start. Sound is 100x better than the Jayco factory speakers us it's very portable so we can take it outside to the campfire or beach for music in our proximity but not having to blast the TT speakers and disturb other campers.

The factory system can be upgraded pretty easily. I have already swapped out the crap stock speakers and installed Polk 6.5 car speakers and the difference is night and day. I went ahead and loaded my iTunes music to a SD card, but you have to toggle through to get to the music because the album art makes the head unit think that it's a photo. The system has the power to add 2 more speakers as well, which I may do.

I bought a headphone jack bluetooth adapter. This allows me to use either my i-pod or phone. Amazon sells them for under $25.00 and they are rechargeable, lasts 8-10 hrs. It will give you minimal controls from the head unit adapter to skip a song or stop the feed.

x2 on the upgraded speakers, but think I am maxed out with the 8 stock locations.

Thanks!

Thanks for your suggestions about our IPOD/iRV stereo system. We will try some of them out when we get our trailer out of storage next ... It sounds like many of you have Jensen stereo systems ... don't know if that makes a difference. Thanks again.

I have a 2015 and it does not have Bluetooth. It has the sucky iRV system which is a piece of garbage. It's difficult to use, doesn't do what it's supposed to most of the time and has a mode specifically called iPod but won't play anything off an iOS device. Perhaps if I had an iPod Shuffle from 2008 it would work.

I'm honking of upgrading to a decent car stereo. Must have cost Jayco $5 for each of these iRV units.

What system does your trailer have?

This works for streaming music from your iPhone. I use a double ended 3.5mm wire (headphone jacks) that takes sound from the iPod or Satellite radio dock and runs it into the media input on the stereo. Not ideal but works fine.
