ipod to RV stereo system?

I havent been out in person to look yet since we still have quite awhile before we are ready to buy but Im wondering if the stereos in these RVs have audio in ports? I have a small portable speaker system I can use it would just be a shame not to use the system built into the trailer with my ipod. Thanks in advance!

If you have a Jensen radio, it has an 1/8 inch input. We used an 1/8 inch cable to go from the ipod headphones jack to the stereo. Also used the same concept going from a cell phone (Pandora app) to the stereo.

Works great.

If your iPhone has Bluetooth, you don't even need a connector with a Genesis Technologies GT2 or GT3 you can stream it wirelessly!

Didn't find Pandora as an app for my Windows phone, but we have Slacker Radio and Tune In Radio.

Just a quick note for those who want to plug your IPod into you Aux. plug with a 3.25 jack. For much improved sound from IPod find a cord that plugs into the large power jack of your Ipod and Not the earphone jack.Also you can plug small aux amp inline for over the top sound.
