Have a 378 but yes it came with a RCA DVD player, antenna swith box 3 way and a outside ant. amplifier all in the same Cab over the dash. I'm sure the dvd player will feed the bunk TV's also. Surely you've switched from cable to ant source by now? The RCA will also provide Surround sound when set up properly.

Did it come with a floor speaker and at least 4-6 ceiling speakers? The DVD is "the" home theater with the speakers. Dealer owes you sometihing if not. At least an apology or explanation! The system provided is nothing to write home about, at least though it can play 5.1 dolby movies and will synthesize TV to surround sound.

I have a 350 and the speaker on mine is behind the passengers seat. In the bunks each one has their own dvd player on the shelf.

The Home Theatre Console will contain a DVD player. Your remote will have an Open/Close button. You'll see where it goes in when you operate that button. The DVD trays are so slim they don't stand out very much. I received a Sony Blue-Ray player for my birthday and when I looked at it I couldn't tell where the slot for the tray is. The fit is so close it's difficult to see at first glance.

This is just an opinion, but, after the THIRD RCA piece of cr*p started to fail I decided that their must be a better way to go. Never cared for the sound quality from the RCA package and the junk speaker systems installed by FR. Bought a Samsung "sound bar" from Best Buy. Installed the bar itself below the TV with industrial strength velco and placed the wireless (Bluetooth) sub woofer behind the couch. Used the optical output for the TV/Soundbar connection and WOW! what a difference. NASCAR races with the audio surronding you is incredible. Bought a BluRay player and set it ontop of the DirecTV receiver that is in the cabinet under the TV.

So far I think every Home Theatre System FR has picked for their Coaches have been crappy. We have the HTS-1000 Executive Home Theatre System. Who knows who made it? We went through 4 of them in the first 6 months we had the coach. The dealer shipped the last one to me and I put it in. It's worked fine since May of 2007. The quality is nothing to write home about but it's still working. When It dies I'll get a better BluRay Set-up. As for NASCAR, I usually record the races in the Coach as I'm watching or sleeping. I do enjoy the TV outside. Watch most of the NFL out there as well.

We upgraded our surround sound system to a Panasonic home theater system with Blue Ray player. We also upgraded both TVs to Panasonic LEDs. 24-inch in the bedroom and 37-inch in the salon. Also upgraded the sub-woofer. Thought about upgrading the surround speakers but not yet.
The rattling Olevia 32 is now in our garage and we have storage where the old CRT was mounted in the cabinet in the bedroom.
Love the upgrades. TV picture quality and sound are both so much better, plus no rattling TV upfront as we drive down the road.
