If someone else can try their Jensen VM9726BT, then try Utah, West Jordan,Wilshire, 9312. Ours stops letting us put in info when we get to the street name and the 3 rd letter Wil.... Just curious if others are having problems finding new addresses. Thx, Ben

I've a problem with my radio/gps on the unit we just bought new a few months ago. I can't get in touch with the dealer I bought it from. I think maybe the closed this local branch or something. I'm going to contact Forest River if I can find their contact information. hopefully they will help me out.

It is actually the DVD wiring that is the problem. When it was installed whoever wired it broke the male end of the RCA cable off in the female wire (the video output) coming from the DVD/GPS unit. (or maybe it got in a bind when they slid the radio in) So I need a new RCA cable ran from the DVD player to the TV (through the wall) and somehow to get the broken off RCA piece out of the output cable from the unit.

It hasn't worked since I bought it new. Dealer told me I just wasn't setting the output and input on the unit and TV correctly. I didn't get a manual so he was supposed to get one for me and never did so (2 months later) I found one online and discovered I was doing everything right.

I checked the connections on the back of the TV and they were ok so I pulled the radio out and found this. Not sure where to go from here. Now I've been trying to get in touch with the dealer for another 2 months and he isn't returning my calls. Really frustrating. Thanks for asking, feels good to rant a little! lol.

And the aux input on the outside entertainment center doesn't work.

Fishing a new cable sounds hard. What about just replacing the connector?

They also have female ones.

Yes I considered that but want to talk to someone first at Forest River. If they tell me to do that then I'll give it a try. I thought if I start modifying it and then still have a problem they might say it won't be covered under warranty since I messed with it.
