I just took delivery on my 2015 FR Cardinal 3825FL fifth wheel it has a Furrion DV1200 wall mount entertainment system with DVD/CD/USB/BLUETOOTH/AM/FM/WEATHERBAND the camper came with three tv's mounted and prewired to this system, when they demonstrated the unit I asked if I could hook up my dish network receiver easily they showed me on the outside where to hook up the cable if I was at a camp ground that furnished cable and then showed me the other two jacks that they said was for satellite hook up. On the inside of the main living area cabinet under the Furrion system there is two cable jacks I can get the feed from my dish to my receiver but my question is can anyone tell me how to get the signal to the tv's I have tried hooking the cable (out to tv) back to the other jack but it does not transmit through the Furrion system, the main tv in the living room has 3 cables hooked up to the Furrion box - 1 HDMI, 1 coaxial, and three AV RCA jacks the other two tv's only have coaxial hooked to them. What am I doing wrong? I have called the dealer two times and they honestly know less about it than I do LOL Any help would be appreciated.
On our rockwood there is a panel with three sets of rca jacks in the cabinet next to the two cable connections one is for cable/satellite connection other one is for antenna I'm out of town right now so if you are still having this problem on Sunday afternoon I'll take pics and post hope this kind of helps
I have a 2015 Sanibel 3601 with a Sony system that is similar and have connected my Direct TV into the system with no problem, this is not the exact system but your should be similar. I connected the Sat box to the TV via a HDMI cable to the HDMI 2 connection on the TV cable/ant is using HDMI 1 connection. Then to watch the sat you just change the TV input to HDMI 2 and you are watching Sat. To watch cable/ant just change the TV input back to HDMI 1. The sound in both cases comes out thru the Sony sound system set to TV. Hope this helps.
Thanks for all the help guys and cri basically our right I have found out thats the only way that it will work the 4 different guy's that I spoke to at my dealer tried to tell me that you hooked it up through the two coaxial jacks and it would send video to all three tv's through the furrion system but that is not the case and it can not be done that way I bought the King flex tailgater antenna with two 211z receivers one jack hooks up in the main living room and you run a HDMI to the tv and the other feeds to the bed room or to the jacks under storage compartment and will run 2nd tv with HDMI cable works great but it will not play through the speaker system witch is not a big deal to me just wish they could have told me this on the beginning and I wouldn't have wasted about 4 days taking the furrion system out looking for wires and trying to make it do something it won't do LOL but I just want everyone here to know when everything they had told me to do failed the dealer was the one that told me about this forum and told me to check it out and see if anyone here could help me out and you did so thanks again. You would think that a place selling a $80,000.00 camper and the salesman claimed they sold between 60 and 70 campers a month would know more about there product than something this simple the bad part about it I also bought the sat system from them also witch was another $700 and they had no idea how to actually install it in a brand new camper but don't get me wrong we absolutely LOVE this FR Cardinal with the front living room set up this is my second FR 5th wheel rv i traded in a 2006 FR sport 32' toy hauler so as you can see I'm kinda partial to FR river and they have come a long way since 2006 and I'm not trashing my dealer as you may have notice I have never mention there name and I'm not going to, they have been very nice and its been a learning trip for them also. I really enjoy reading everyones post for the most part its grate to have a place to come to and learn from people that have actually been there and done that. I would like to throw in that all the people that like to get on here a down FR or any camper for that that matter they need to remember that these companies have to build these things out of the lightest materials that they can find and they stick them on a set of axles and we pull them all over the world beating them to heck and back and when something goes wrong or a appliance quits working or leaks or whatever they go to screaming about how bad the quality is, well maybe they just need to set at home and watch the rest of us run up and down the road having a good time. thats just my 2 cents worth thanks again guys.
