Furion TV in bedroom problem

We seen to have developed a problem withe the Furion Tv in the bedroom of our 3051s. After about 40-mins of viewing the audio starts to cut out. It comes back and then cuts out more for longer. Each time it comes back for less and less time. Then the tv just turns off all by its self.

It happens with both TV and DVDs.

We're still under warranty for another 16-days so I'll try to get it replaced, but has anyone else seen anything like this on their coach?

well they are the least priced tv they can get, both of mine went out on my last trip to North Carolina, they replaced one at the dealer and I replaced one on the trip, coachman (Nate Hodges) told me to go buy one and send him a copy of the receipt and he would send me a check,

Check the 12volt plug in...they suck! They get super hot and loose connection - they actually melt. I wired mine direct.

Vizio makes a 12-v model with built in DVD player? That's news to me.

Furrion = junk that's not news to me.

My Furion was doing weird sound issues like yours right after we got the rig last spring. Only did it for a few times, then mysteriously quit completely?? Makes no sense at all. One thing I did do was get a small blue tooth/wired stero speaker and plugged it into the tv earphone jack - sounds tons better than those $0.39 speakers in the tv...just have to charge it up once in a while..

Yes. We have the same setup in the bedroom. I upgraded the mount so we could change the angle up and down and it also sits out a little further which helps connecting items to the bottom jacks. Right now we have a couple of problems with our Furion. It has a couple of small lines on the screen when watching any channel or dvd. Also, when doing a digital channel search, it doesn't pick up as many channels as the other TV's. The other TV's are Jensens not Furions. Taking in our MH for more warranty work and hope to swap out the Furion while in the shop.
