Happy New Year For Me

Well Our Toshiba 40" TV went out and had to get a replacement. Went to bed around 3am on 12-31-14 and when we woke up and I tried to turn the tv on it would not power up. Called our extended warranty company and they had to have a RV Tech look at the system so I found Steve Howald, great individual and very helpful. If anyone in the Destin/Niceville area needs a great Mobile RV Repair individual you need to call Steve. After getting approval was authorized to get a replacement. So of to the store with DW and purchased a Sony Bravia replacement. This is a smart TV and was able to get it installed so we can watch the football games. Glad that our extended warranty covered everything. Has a better picture and is a LED TV. So I must say our 2015 year is starting out on the good side of thing. Hope it stays this way.

Our 40" Toshiba went out after just a couple of months. Took it in to a local Toshiba repair center and they fixed it under warranty. Bad board or something like that. Hope I don't have to face this again very soon. How old was your unit when it went out?

Bought the MH in May 2012, so 2.5 years old. When I get back to Texas I'm gonna take it into a repair shop and see what they saw if not too much maybe get her fixed and save as a back up, or give it to one of the grandkids for there bedroom.

Happy New Year For Me

Our 40" Toshiba went out 2 weeks after we bought our 378. I contacted FR and they told me I could purchase a new one locally and send them the bill. I shipped the old TV by giving it to the local FR dealer.
I then bought a 42" Vizio smart TV. After removing the top board above the cabinet the new TV fit perfectly.
I had enough room under the TV to install a shelve (bought at Lowes) to fit a Blueray 5.1 home theater system and my Direct receiver.

Here is where I placed all of the speakers. The subwoofer is behind the recliner. Click image for larger version

Wrapperman.......

Beautiful installation of your 42" upgraded system!!!!!!!!

I can imagine you spent a fair amount of time hiding the wiring to the speakers over the dining area.....certainly doesn't show at all in your photos. It is also a bit easier when it's a home run along the same side of the RV to your amplifier Blueray system.

How did you make your wiring run to the other speakers and subwoofer on the opposite wall?

Great work again.

Good question
Here are some pics of that installation. On the right sides I ran it down behind the fireplace, through the floor, over to the PVC pipe, along the PVC pipe, into the belly of the coach to the other side. I loosely zip tied it to the piston rod. Then I drilled a small hole in the 2 x 2 slideout tube (so as not to pinch the wire) to the outer wall and along the edge then straight up behind the recliner, that is where the subwoofer is at then the rear speaker wires under the coach then up the wall.
It took me longer to figure out how to do it than to accomplish the job.
