Feeling dumb and hope someone can help with TV

I consider myself to be a fairly "techy" person, but I've thrown in the towel on this and turned to the forum. My wife and I just purchased a 2015 Coachmen Freedom Express 257BHS. I have been unsuccessful in getting the television(Haier) to play sound through the A, B, or C Jensen speakers. Is that not possible, or am I missing a step somewhere? The volume on the TV is not great, so I'm hoping it's something I am overlooking. Thanks in advance for your help.

I would check to make sure there is an audio output lead plugged into the back of your TV. If so, then I would pull the Jensen unit and make sure the audio lead from the TV is in fact plugged into the Jensen.

When I first had my unit, my issue was the reverse. Sound would play through the Jensen, but not through the TV. No audio cable. :-)

I have to put ours on AV1 to get the sound on A, B & C. Don't remember(CRS) whether it's on the input or output.

I had to go through my tv menu and set speaker output to ext speakers and then set stereo to aux 1
And insure there is a audio cord on r TV output sound connected to your stereo.
Insure speakers are turned on "a for speakers, b for sub woofer, and c for outside camper speakers.

May be different in the MH, my A is living room, B is bedroom and C is outside.

Out of the tv itself or the A,B,C speakers? We can listen to the tv itself or thru the camper speakers.

There is no audio out of the TV into the stereo as set up from the factory. If you want the audio from the TV, to play through the stereo, you need to add a stereo plug into the back of the TV ( Headphone jack not PC audio) and run it to the aux input on the stereo.

Have no idea how ours is wired, the local Dish tech came out, spent about and hour, wrote down what buttons to push on the 2 remotes and left, $55. We like how it works, can watch whatever is playing on the lr on Dish in the bedroom or outside by tuning to Ch 3 or watch whatever else is over the air on the roof antenna.

Flybob is correct. Our 2015 FE 246RKS needed a wire from the TV output to an input on the Stereo. I was lucky to discover our particular stereo model had an unused spare input on the back of the unit, so I popped it out of its mount, plugged everything in and after some creative routing of the wiring so you can't see it, any input I add to the TV (specifically HDMI connected devices such as a Bluray player, Chrome cast, or Apple TV) can send sound via the stereo speakers OR TV speakers or both.
